Hundreds of fake (uncredited) credits added to "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm"

Hi everyone. Another animation page vandalized to report. This time: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

https://web.archive.org/web/20210224182911/http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106364/fullcredits

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106364/fullcredits/

Nearly one hundred fake "uncredited" credits added apparently somewhat recently to the cast and art department. Clearly just some fan adding guys they like to the page (Stephen Hillenburg? Joe Murray? Mr. Lawrence? come on). Could these be reverted? Thanks.

The vandalism here is more serious. Surely same person is responsible for this as the one you previously reported on this thread: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/huge-number-of-fake-credits-on-minions-2015-page/62b5265571951105f179bef9

@Michelle said "I have taken steps to help prevent the issue from reoccurring." on that thread but let's check a common name page from both of these reports: Jack Angel

Search for "Various (uncredited)" on the page and you will find lots of more titles with this exact same vandalism.

Antz (1998) - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb

The Incredibles (2004) - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb

Madagascar (2005) - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb

Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost (Video 1999) - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb

...there are a lot more

I don't know what "steps" Michelle took in previous thread but I think they should remove everything added by this user to solve this vandalism properly.

Something here is really curious, most of these titles have "verified as complete" marker and they are animated titles. What's the purpose of "verified as complete" markers if it can't prevent dozens of fake credit additions like this? Not to mention "uncredited voice credits" not being allowed generally, so there should be at least two types of obstacles here against these additions but they are still added somehow.

^ Yeah, you are right, it looks like the same editor. The Scooby-Doo one especially is full of the same fake uncredited storyboard artists (Derek Drymon, Will Finn, Dan Povenmire, etc.) 

Clearly someone is trolling these pages big time.

@tormented​ Yeah, too bad this will probably stay here unsolved for a loong time or indefinitely. Sorry for partly being a reason for that by commenting here which I guess made the staff prefer to skip dealing with it.
