Problem adding quote on Scream Queens' IMDB Page

I was trying to add a quote on the Scream Queens' IMDB page, and since there are not any quotes by the character on the page yet I had to type in her name instead. I typed it in correctly (and re-checked the spelling 100 times) yet a rejection error keeps coming up that I must choose a name from the cast menu. I also tried using the actress' real name just in case it wanted that for some strange reason. Help please.

Hi, groovyvic. The "Name" field's value will be something other than "Choose"; which in this case, "Unknown" is only option. The fact that there is no way to select Gigi Caldwell (Pedrad, Nasim) is a limitation glitch. Thanks for reporting this.

There aren't many quotes on the page and the only clickable names are those that have already been used in a quote (a lot of the main characters aren't listed in the drop down menu). It doesn't make sense for them to give an option to type in a name if that really isn't an option.... thanks for your response, but something still doesn't add up. hmm

Right, groovyvic. Undoubtedly something does not add up, which is why I referred to this as a "glitch".

So, does Gigi Caldwell say, "It'll be fun, like a Friends episode... but someone's trying to murder all the friends", in every episode? Or is it that you, groovyvic, don't know in which specific episode she says the line? The warning message in the submission form implies a clear preference that the quote be added to the title entry for the specific episode to which it applies.

I don't know what episode it was from, but they just say its preferable if I know the episode. That isn't the reason they're giving for it being rejected.

"This item has been rejected. You need to correct this item before it will be accepted.
  • Please select a name from the cast menu for speaker #1
    If you do not know which cast member spoke this line, please select "Unknown" from the cast name menu instead."

You can get around the rejection message if you sacrifice identifying the actress who plays the part, groovyvic. That's not ideal, so understandably you might decline to go such a route.

Hi both,

This is a known issue. The reason you can select any of the characters on the series level dropdown is due to the old functionality from the past before episodes were created as a data type. You need to add the quote at the episode level, there you will be able to select the correct actress from the dropdown results.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

That isn't actually true because I tried to add another quote for which I knew the episode and it was not available in the dropdown menu

I see that the quote is already listed for the second episode:
