Voice attribute declined

I was fixing up the credits to Norm of the North. Currently, Cathy Cavadini is listed as uncredited. However, this is an animated feature with no live action part, so she needs to have the "voice" attributed added to her "uncredited" attribute.

The submission was #190621-155209-895000

The contributor guide has a rule against uncredited voice credits, which must be why your submission was declined.

The staff was going to get back to us about possibly changing this rule. We had a discussion about it four months ago: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/two-rejections-for-june-foray

According to the rules, all of the uncredited voices in NORM OF THE NORTH should be deleted, which seems silly.

There are exception to the uncredited voice rule. Cathy Cavandini (Powerpuff Girls) is famous enough to retain uncredited voice work.

I'm not sure the rules allow for any exceptions, even for famous people. June Foray is the most famous voice actress of them all, and I wasn't able to get her credited as Chatty Cathy in a commercial.

But let's hope they'll make an exception for Cathy Cavadini anyway.

There are exceptions to this rule, and it’s unlikely that the ”already approved” uncredited voice credits would be deleted.

I hope you're right. I'd like to see the guidelines tell us explicitly what the exceptions are.

Thanks Adrian, I've amended the credit now to (voice) (uncredited). As Eboy states we do show editorial discretion for certain cases that we feel are of public interest.

I hope this helps.
