How do I delete these persons?

Hi. For some reason I can't delete the following people from Sunset Beach's full cast and crew list.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1024436/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Choppy Guilotte
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1212145/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Ryan Christopher Keys
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0759613/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 Francine Sama
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0859038/?ref_=nv_sr_1#actress Jodi Thomas

What these four people have in common is that they are listed undder "unknown episodes" which makes it impossible to delete them since they are not listed under a specific episode. However, when I list them under a specific episode and then delete them once they have been accepted they "bounce back" to being listed under unknown episodes. How do I resolve this?

I know they do not appear in the show.

Andreas Palmström, just my five cents: if someone is listed on IMDb as actor in some title, but you can't find appearance and credit, after re-checking both main titles and end credits of the episode it might be a good idea to add attribute "(uncredited)" to the role, rather then delete it. And it always needs further re-checking, especially since there are cases like Marcia Wallace on "Columbo", who has a "credit only" as "Woman" in one 1971 episode, although she actually appears in another 1971 episode, uncredited. 

That said, situation like Rufus might as well be someone's misguided attempt: In many TV series there are uncredited background/semi-background characters who actually have names if you pay attention but might slip past through you. Bobbin Bergstrom who was an on-set medical advisor on "House" also appeared occasionally as a nurse and sum of those occasions is 134, more then some of the main cast members on the show. Chances are that fewer people will remember her in one episode. Certainly took me several seasons to notice her.

To Nikolay's point, it is not actually possible to add "uncredited" to a series-level credit in the update form. It is rejected out of hand, at least when the series has episode coverage. To add "uncredited" you would have to choose episodes as well.

Nikolay: Uncredited is to be used when a person appeared in ab episode but didn't recieved credit. This is not the case with these four as their character names isn't mentioned either, at any point.

Credit only doesn't work either since only the main cast were credited in this show.

To me, the attribute ”(uncredited)” also means that the person is more-or-less ”confirmed” appearing on the film/series. Just not credited. So I wouldn’t use it ”just in case”. In some ways ”(uncredited)” attribute kinda confirms that, yes, this actor appears in the program.


In my opinion you submit ”delete” requests when you know the actor (how he/she looks like on the screen) and therefore know that he/she doesn’t appear in the episode/film. Of course the actual credits should also be double checked (could it be ”(credit only)” situation).


Like I said, a tricky case.

Ed Jones: I can provide still photos from the scenes these four had in SB? Can you do the same?

I can even narrate what role their characters had in the show. Can you do the same?

Also. I didn't just "missed" them while watching. I went thhrough the whole show JUST to spot all guest characters so in every episode that was what I were most focused on.

IF the persons I deleted indeed should turned out to be in the show I will personally be happy to include them on their episodes again.

It's not so easy to add photos to a cast page. You have to be either the actor or the actress itself or work for him/her to add photos. But here is a photo of her from another show.

Do you have a problem with reading? To add photos to a person you have to be somewhow connected to it. Believe me, I've tried.

Weill. In that case the rules have changed since I tried the last time. But at least you have to have Imdb Pro, which I don't have.

For submissions in general yes, to add photos, no.

Andreas Palmström you only need to have Title Scorecard or IMDb Pro to add pictures which will appear on person's IMDb page and with IMDb Pro they won't appear on the title as well, as Title Scorecard is more studio-oriented. 

Either way, images added through usual means will still be appropriately tagged on IMDb pages if one tags them, so they will appear in character galleries, accessed through hyperlink on the role.

An important warning about Title Scorecard image uploads is that an undesirable image can wind up becoming the special placeholder image (which shows up copped in its thumbnail form) on the page of somebody tagged as being in it, and as long as the person is within frame as far as the thumbnail goes, the choice of image will not changed per IMDb policy. So, please be careful.

Of course I make misstakes, but not in this case. I rewatched the entire show JUST to find as many guest cast members I could. My entire focus was on that and still is as there are many guest actors which I don't know the name of but I'm keeping an eye out in all other shows/films from the 90s/early 2000nd and see if I recognize someone.

You don't have to. Since my deletions were approved (which you were so sure they wouldn't) there ain't so much more to discuss. I'm leaving this subject now since my problem has been solved.
