Hi ingsley -

 

Thanks for reporting this issue on the site, regarding referencing the outdated "MPAA' vs the current "MPA".

 

I have alerted the appropriate team to address the display, once I have a status I will post an update here.

 

Cheers!

3 year later…. nothing has been done.

Seriously, how difficult is to remove a letter from an acronym?

This is happening only because this change is not up to the contributors.

Recent  examples:

“Twentieth Century Fox” became “Twentieth Century Studios

“Fox Searchlight” became “Searchlight Pictures

“Twentieth Century Fox Television” became “Twentieth Television

All these changes have been reflected on IMDb because the users have created new companies with the new names to replace the obsolete ones.

Now we’re not talking about a single major studio, we are talking about the official association of all the major studios.

But this change from MPAA to MPA is not up to any contributor. When we introduce an MPA rating, it automatically shows up as an “MPAA” rating, and it’s been 5 years since the name change, and 3 years since Michelle “alerted the appropriate team.”

The change is up to IMDb itself, and it’s high time this gets resolved.

I can confirm that the ticket to review this change is still open and being reviewed by the applicable team.  Once we have any updates we will post them on the other recently raised thread.
