No Status

Invalid Attribute (also archive footage)

When did this happen and why? I've used it many times and it is a useful attribute to me so why is IMDb now banning it?

I agree (also archive footage) is a valid attribute. It gives you much more information than if the attribute isn't there. The statement that "it is redundant to specify archive footage if the person also appeared on-screen in original footage" is simply untrue. Specifying archive footage means that the person ALSO appeared in archive footage, apart from appearing in original material. Not having the attribute strongly suggests the person did NOT appear in archive footage, only in original material. As we all know, this isn't always the case, so an attribute is needed for cases like this.

Almost two weeks and no official response as to why this attribute went away?

Two months and not a single word from an IMDb rep?
