Spotted a company without the country code

This company seems to be lacking a country code:
http://www.imdb.com/company/co0031398/

The correct country code is: [de]

http://ambient.de/en/contact/ )

Not sure how to update the country code, but perhaps some of the team can do it.

Hi Eboy,

Thanks for the message.

I have updated the country code to (DE).  Please note this change may take some time to be reflected across all areas of the site.

Thanks for your patience!

Is it possible to create a list of companies without a country code?

Does anybody know if it's possible to create a list of companies without a country code?

I know this thread is marked Solved, but maybe a contributor (perhaps ljdoncel?) is able to answer my question.

Hi, Marco  :

When I read this thread almost 2 years ago I did submit via Helpdesk a complete listing of the (at that moment) 29,226 companies lacking a country code. I even explored the countries of origin of each company's films in order to help determine/narrow down/investigate the actual country code of the company.

Here are some screenshots:






I still have the files in my Dropbox account, so you (or anybody) can still check them:
  • Companies without country code [summary]: PDF file (16,5 Mbytes)
  • Companies without country code [production]: PDF file (6,7 Mbytes)
  • Companies without country code [distributors]: PDF file (2,0 Mbytes)
  • Companies without country code [special effects]: PDF file (434 Kbytes)
  • Companies without country code [other]: PDF file (2,7 Mbytes)
  • Companies without country code [all info]: Excel (XLSX) file (1,8 Mbytes)

However, and I don't remember the exact terms of the Helpdesk answer, but suggested that they deemed this info not very useful, so I didn't insist anymore...

Anyway, this analysis couldn't be performed nowadays using the current public datasets because companies credits are no longer included into them.

Cheers!

Ljdoncel, as always, you've compiled a very useful list. I don't understand why IMDb wouldn't deem this useful.
That being said, I'm still - every now and again - working on your lists of duplicated plot summaries (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/attn-staff-duplicate-verbatim-plot-summaries) and too short mini-bios (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/too-short-mini-bios-question-for-ljdoncel), so for now, I'll keep my focus on those. :)

Hi both,

It is no longer possible to enter a company credit without an associated country code, however this wasn't always the case, hence the number of companies without a country code.

I hope this helps explain the situation.

Regards,
Will
