I don't know if there is a special IMDB employee that writes the mini bios, but whoever it is should be replaced.

I don't know if there is a special IMDB employee that writes the mini bios, but whoever it is should be replaced. I say this because the sentence structures are absolutely horrible, and make reading the bios exhausting.

Rowan,

Users submit them and can also correct them (notice there is an "edit page" button on all Name and Title pages of the database).

So we should all be replaced?

Do you have an example or just dropping HR notes?

In general mini-bios are not written by Staff, but by general Contributors - like all the data on the database.

If no mini-bio has been provided by a Contributor, the system will try to generate one using the data that is already on the page, e.g. :
John Doe is an actor known for This Tiny Film.
