Modern Family character names

Someone should keep an eye on these last couple of Modern Family episodes. Someone is constantly changing and hyphening character names, changing them and creating lots of inconsistencies, changing their credited order, and also adding Marcello Reyes' character Cal in episodes he does not appear.

Right now everything has been corrected, but I've been doing the same thing, over and over, for the last couple of weeks, because these mistakes have been changed back constantly!

I haven't noticed this. I typically watch Modern Family but the credits are usually already filled out when I get around to watching the episodes. Basically, I look to see that all the credited actors appear and that anyone other than the main cast is credited as they appear in the end credits.

Yeah, usually I update the episodes once they come out. But lately a lot of inconsistencies on the character's names have poped up, just to name a few.

Hi RichieM,

Have you got any submission references and I can take a look?

This page is for an upcoming season 11 episode. And there it is! Cameron's name has been hyphened, despite always being listed as Cameron Tucker on press releases, and Manny, Lily and Joe have alternate character names as aliases, this part is simply ridiculous! Reid Ewing is also listed between main cast members, despite being a guest star, no word if he is upgrated for the next season.

I think Haley being changed from Dunphy to Marshall is kinda ok, I guess, since the character got married, but press releases still credit her with the her original name.

Thanks Richie M, I've contacted the user responsible advising him on the policies now and I've fixed the data on this episode.

I'm sorry, but whoever keeps making these edits is getting on my nerves. I updated the latest episode this morning, and it was filled with everything else I mentioned before: hyphened character names where they don't belong, fake characters and actors being added, and of course, the character played by Marcello Reyes being added.

This person who keeps doing this has some sort of obsession with this child actor, and this is seriously creepy!

Everything has been corrected, but it looks like this will happen every week, like it did last season. Isn't there a way to block someone from edit?
