remove series end year

if unconfirmed 2.1 needs to stay, then series end year should be deleted too: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10919420/

made a submission for mini-series keyword removal: 211119-184738-631000 (unable to verify - if you're unable to verify this, why are you keeping 2.1 or how did you verify 2.1 but not his?)

but series end year can only be removed by staff

also, why are you ignoring this all-fake name page report? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm12737237/

Hi mbmb -

With regards to Squid Game, I have now removed the series end year and "tv-mini-series" keyword, as it has been reported that a second season is in the works.

Concerning the reported name page, apologies for a delayed reply.  The incorrect credits have now been removed.

Cheers!

If you don't get a response on that name page in the next 2 or 3 days, send it directly as a sole problem here: IMDb | Contact

In case you don't have a pro account, that page was created around 4th July 2021 and obviously filled up with 12 years of BS credits to help promote his business. I'm yet to see anyone credited solely as (assistant) on anything.
I did check the 5 The Blacklist credits against the episodes just as a courtesy to what we already know, nothing there.

I do love how his bio says he's 24, yet he's credited as Stage Manager on a major Indian movie that filmed in 2008 and that he got a degree in computer science before starting in the film industry, now that was one smart 10 year old apparently.

@VonPunk it's way worse over there. Here, you can at least see you're ignored for sure but on contact us page, they ignore you and you don't even know if you're ignored or they didn't receive it or what the hell is going on. And they can continue to ignore you forever and you can't do anything about it. We can at least open new threads and track them here. You can't track anything over there.

Well I've had a 100% response rate from them in the 60 or 70 times I've contacted them always within 24 hours, probably been satisfied with the outcome around 95% of the time, though sometimes I'm to blame for the 5% dissatisfaction and it helped me grow as a contributor.

If you ever do message them, my advice is be concise and only mention 1 problem per message and move onto to next problem after response.

I did a deeper dive on this guy and this title https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15724342/ 

that's at the script stage seems to be his first attempt.

He has 16 followers on Twitter where he's pimping his IMDb profile and all links to his supposed fame seem to be dead links. He claims to be India's Youngest Producer but that fact links to a Khushi Kothari when you do research on it, so not even factual. So probably only 1 thing (which hasn't gone into production yet) on his entire page has a hint of truth.

Oh and he's pimping a book on Amazon which possibly looks like his dissertation  (if he really did a degree) just formatted into a book form and self published for download.

Not surprising you have %95 satisfaction rate, like I showed you in your thread, Michelle "reinstates, investigates, contacts contributor (and even informs you about every detail of it)" because someone deleted an item in your contribution only once.

Same Michelle sends irrelevant canned response to me and then goes into "ignore mode" when someone was repeatedly deleting my additions that was submitted with evidence since the start and I was asking them to do something about it. She does everything possible for your only one deletion, she ignores everything for my more valid case.

Anyway you can be sure that in-development title is fake as well. At first he probably didn't think he could easily add his name to every popular movie, so created a fake title page with imdbpro to have a name page (title's name is the same as his supposed advertising agency if you look at his bio again)

And then he realized he can actually spam his name to every popular movie without any evidence and they are being accepted without a hitch, he continued to do so.

And now Michelle protects his abuse of IMDb for some reason by ignoring the report about it.
