If I have numerous credits as *Self* + only 1 old credit as *Misc Crew* -why isn't *Self* listed as my primary profession on top of my page?

Is there a way to re-submit my numerous *Self* credits so that the number of these override the 1 *Misc Crew* primary profession listed at top under my name?

I will edit the "Self" listings to allow "Self" profession to be my main, if so.

I don't think anyone has Self listed at the top of the page, not even those who only have self credits. So you would have to persuade IMDb to change that bit of programming.

It is my name (Carla Baron) then "Self" appears after. When I do a search for my name, it shows "Self."

When will my actual page update to reflect that search listing?  (See below)

This is my page now, which still reflects "Misc Crew" profession as primary, not "Self" like the search above.

When will it show "Self" along with my name like it does in searches now?

HOWEVER -

I am not talking about the positioning of the credits. I am talking about the sheer number of "Self" credits outnumbering the Misc Crew credit. It shows when you search for my name, but not at top profession listed under my name on actual page.

Inquiring about the PROFESSION listed under my name. In the search for my name on IMDbPro, you can clearly see I am listed as "Self" in the photo above.

I just want to know when my actual page when you land there will reflect the same as it does when you search for me.

And the "proof" that I was not the assigned stand-in on Twins is what exactly? 

I am not listed on any of their call sheets. I was doing a favor for the producer filling in for the regular stand-in for just a couple days while she was out sick with food poisoning.

I don't recall the girl's full name as this was 30 yrs ago. So how am I supposed to prove this other than stating what I did above?

It's not well-known, but I used to be a medium for mediums.
Hope this time this helps the staff to help Carla )))

This topic sort of got sidetracked with the stand-in situation. The original question got lost in the mix.

Gonna start a new conversation to get the original question answered.

Hi, Carla:

As Peter has commented, nobody has "Self" listed at the top of their page, not even those who only have self credits, because it is not one of the 40 primary professions currently acknowledged by .

As of today (5 May 2019)... PRIMARY PROFESSIONS:
      actor  ~ 2,218,360 names
      actress  ~ 1,317,151 names
      animation department  ~ 146,789 names
      art department  ~ 331,812 names
      art director  ~ 68,844 names
      assistant  ~ 2,886 names
      assistant director  ~ 187,737 names
      camera department  ~ 571,147 names
      casting department  ~ 40,679 names
      casting director  ~ 23,565 names
      cinematographer  ~ 263,819 names
      composer  ~ 226,275 names
      costume department  ~ 110,036 names
      costume designer  ~ 57,517 names

      transportation department  ~ 70,542 names
      visual effects  ~ 163,469 names
      writer  ~ 624,283 names

What you see when you do a search is not the primary profession, but the section/department on which the person worked, in the film for which that person is best known for (according to the site). This department does not necessarily have to match a primary profession nor even be the primary profession of the name.

E.g. James Galway. Professions: Music Department/Soundtrack/Actor. Best known for: Miscellaneous


Therefore, "Self" won't appear as a primary profession under your name... at least for now, sorry.

Hope it helps. Cheers!

Thank you, ljdoncel. That list is comprehensive, but wondering now if I should change my credit listing to another on that current list so my main profession reflects on IMDb accurately.

But WHICH one would fit - I have starred in several paranormal reality tv series as an internationally- known psychic medium, & psychic crime profiler.

Could an IMDb representative answer, as well, on this?
