IMDB wont let me add a contribution for my credits

Hi everyone.

So, I worked in a netflix series called "Thursday Widows", or "Las Viudas de los Jueves" in spanish, as an extras coordinator and "payroll man extras" (which means I had to organize their papers and make a payroll so they could be paid.

My IMDB credits are listed under Fernando Fiallega S. and in this one they mispelled my name and I appear as Fernando Fiallegas in the "payroll man extras" category. I've tried multiple times adding this credit and it always get declined and of course theres no explanation.
I've tried using "extras coordinator","payroll man extras" and a few variations of both.
I've tried putting the attribute "(as Fernando Fiallegas)" and same result.

I'd like to know if theres any email I can write to and send proof of my participation so I can get a real answer to whats wrong? Thank you and sorry if I'm missing something obvious, had never happened to me before.

Hi, Fernando:

Perhaps you were trying to add your credit to the parent series page, when actually you should do it in each of the episodes in which you participated. Also, since to this is the first time that you are working as a 'payroll' (your previous credits were as 'assistant production manager'), it doesn't hurt to provide visual proof that your name appears in the credits.

I've submitted contribution #230924-122323-386000 on your behalf. I hope this solves the problem.
(ETA: Made a little mistake when adding the {as...} attribute; my bad... amended by #230924-124645-557000)
Hola, Fernando:
A lo mejor estabas añadiendo tu crédito a la página raíz de la serie, cuando en realidad lo que debes hacer es enviarlo a cada uno de los episodios en los que participaste (en tu caso concreto, los seis de la primera temporada). Además, piensa que para ésta es la primera vez que has trabajado como persona a cargo de emitir nóminas (tus créditos anteriores han sido como asistente al jefe de producción), así que no está de más, para convencer al editor de que la información enviada es veraz, aportar alguna prueba visual de que tu nombre aparece en los títulos de crédito, como las capturas que dejo arriba.
He enviado las contribuciones #230924-122323-386000 & #230924-124645-557000 para intentar resolver el problema. Un saludo.

@ljdoncel​ OMG thank you very much for the answer, the informations and the contribution on my behalf. For real you are champion. I didnt know I had to do it for each episode if I had worked on the whole series. Just one last question, how do you provide the visual proof on the contribution?

Again, thank you very much, for real.

Hi again, Fernando. You're very welcome.

how do you provide the visual proof on the contribution?

There's a complete guide on how to submit additional information at the following link: HERE

In short...

  • First advice regarding series credits:
    • If you're going to submit the same (verbatim) credit(s) to multiple episodes, it is preferable to start from the parent series title page () rather than your name page. ← Images correspond to this case
    • If you're going to submit one or more credits to a single same episode, it is still preferable to start from such episode title page () rather than your name page (episode name syntax can be complex).
  • [1]: Make sure you enter your name correctly (enter either S., Fernando Fiallega or nm13432032 {your nmconst}, or select it from the dropdown list).
  • [2]: Select the episodes you want to add your credit to (use this: ). This is very important, because if you leave it blank, you're submitting the credit to the parent series and it will likely be rejected.
  • [3]: Enter the occupation. In English (replicate the on-screen caption if already in English or translate it if needed) and lowercase. You can add the company name after a colon (capital letters are allowed here) if it appears in the credits.
  • [4]: Add attributes, if applies (like (as Fernando Fiallegas) in this case).
  • [5]: To answer your original question, you can provide additional proof by checking the box () Provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission.

From here, you can take two paths, the one recommended by or an alternative path (more convenient if you want to send multiple images at the same time and no sensitive/private information is revealed).

Via :

  • [6]: Click the link upload evidence.
  • [7] & [8]: Choose and upload the file (.jpg, .jpeg, .png or .pdf) with visual proof of your participation in the episode (preferably a screenshot of the credits).
  • [9] & [10]: Copy the long reference code (starting with urn:) and paste it in the Explanation box.
  • [11]: You can now .
  • [12]: Acknowledge/amend the warnings (if any) until everything's green, and .

Alternative path:

  • Upload your evidence to an online image sharing/hosting service. I recommend Imgur, since you can upload images and get a link hidden to the community that you may share only with IMDb.
  • [6]: Paste the link to the image in the Explanation box.
  • [7] & [8]: Like above, and .

I hope this helps... Cheers!
