Why doesn't IMDb fix this issue...changing place of birth.
The spelling of the place of birth for Solomon Georgio is incorrect and I cannot edit it. The system thinks I am changing his date of birth and tells me my correction is invalid.
I see posts from over a year ago about this issue. This is a known issue and IMDb refuses to do anything about it.
This is the message you get if you want to change a place of birth:
When submitting/correcting a date of birth, in the explanation field you must include:
- Links to public records,
- Links to printed publications,
- Links to official documents to accompany your submission
So, I try to correct the spelling of his place of birth (which, BTW is spelled incorrectly on several bio pages. It's LYNNWOOD, not Lynwood) because you know, it's NOT his date of BIRTH, so I figure I don't need to supply any of the above information. I WAS WRONG (again).
I made the correction and after typing in one letter in the explanation box I get this message:
Invalid comment, please make sure it is at least 10 characters long and contains a valid url.
How difficult can it be to do some recoding so that it's possible to change birth place?
It makes no sense for IMDb to not fix this.
