I have 2 credits under "Self" that should be listed under "Actress", how can I get this changed!?

I am having an issue with 2 credits and they are not documentaries. I added "re-enactment" to the episode keywords and submitted changes and its not working. Can you help me?
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3103539/?ref_=nmmd_md_nm

First- 
The Fourth Annual 'On Cinema' Oscar Special (Video) 
Herself / Marilyn Monroe

*They won't let me change the character to just "Marilyn Monroe" when that is the role I played. It is listed under Self instead of Actress, where it should be.

Second-
This Is Not Happening (TV Series) 
Gorgeous Girl
Drugs, Drugs, Drugs ... Gorgeous Girl

*This should aslo be listed under Actress credits not Self.

I don't understand and this is such a headache to try to get changed. Everything keeps getting declined! I read that if you add the keyword "re-enactment" to the episode it would help change the credit. I did exactly that and nothing! Imdb should have customer support for someone to chat with to get these issues resolved.

One thing to note: the keyword should actually be written as ”reenactment” (without the dash, so not ”re-enactment”). You could try correcting that, perhaps it makes the difference?

Hi Amber, 

I have submitted this credit change on your behalf and this change should be live on the site shortly. 

Thanks

Thank you so much!!! I figured it would be too difficult but since you got it to work can the tv series Mystery Diners be moved to my Actress credits also? There are 8 episodes listed under my Self Section. I played different roles but it’s all listed as myself.

How did you get your "self" credit put under your Actress credits?

This is kinda old thread. The common reason is the lack of ” reenactment” keyword, as mentioned in this thread. Usually applies to cases which have both ”him/herself” and ”acting” credits (like dramatized sequences in documentaries, for example).
