Hi, I recently had my first additional crew credit and it's coming up as

'Credits excluded. Update filter selections.'

And I want to fix it so it can be seen- how do I do this?

this is my page here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm14001223/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0_tt_1_nm_7_q_Amie%2520Page

@amieeeA4​ Sorry about that; this will be a timing issue which should fix itself within 24-48 hours.

@amieeeA4​ ... and indeed it did clear-up, plus we are launching a longer-term fix today to reduce the chances of this happening again.

Most of my ratings of titles vanish after returning to the name page using the browser's Back feature (back mouse button) at this page in the Actor section:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000354/

Initial "text-align: center;">

After returning from a title I had not rated:
Similar results from this page:
Using Chrome 115 on Windows 11.
Also happens to the same 2 titles with the coloring extension turned off.

@bderoes​ Thanks for the problem report.  We can reproduce the same issue.  This is a new experimental treatment to re-include the votes again (as in the 2022 beta).  We have opened a ticket with the appropriate team (reference #P95913939).

I think this is a glitch but name pages no longer display uncredited status. The title pages indicate whether an actor or crew member was uncredited but their name pages no longer do so. I would like to think this was not intentional and will need fixing.

This is TERRIBLE! I can’t believe that imdb thinks it is a good idea to summarize people’s credits! When foreign film folks apply for a US artist visa (O1), visa officers look at our imdb pages! They need to see all credits at once without digging through to find them. Do you know why? BECAUSE THEY WON’T! They don’t know that some of the credits are hidden and they need to filter things. They’re not gonna know how to navigate it and they’ll reject applications or ask for more evidence. It took ME several correspondences with the customer service to find my hidden credits and I have been on imdb for years, how are the officers gonna even try to figure out this “new” feature?!!! Do you know how many visa applications you’re going to ruin and how much time and money you’re gonna cost to visa applicants! DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY DREAMS YOU’RE GONNA CRUSH?!!!! This is terrible, terrible terrible terrible… This is “I’m expecting lawsuits” level terrible…

Another thing is that the transition is happening so slowly that the transition to the next generation will be happening right shortly after the previous generation is completely eliminated, say, four years from now, and then there will just be even more JavaScript bloat and probably some new digital rights managment concoction, ¿HTML5.1?, or whatever Google (the Source) decides to force into the Chromium engine that so many Web browsers use, maybe some non-fungible token nonsense.

Hello,

I have a decent credit list in IMDB, and often my list is used by other professionals to look me up. I noticed that the credits list now contains a rating. This is a really bad idea, because that now gives the impression that THAT rating is a reflection of the quality of my work. For example, the movie Torque, had excellent sound work done for it, but the movie overall was not a good one - it is rated a 4.1... but, it now looks like I did a 4.1 quality sound job on it... and it VERY much looks like a black eye on my credit list... even though it is not... it was a sound job that I want on my credits list... because it was much better than the 4.1

If you are going to put a rating in the credits list, then we need to be able to hide certain ones from the public, because rating is not necessarily reflective of the quality of our specific work.

This rating in the list is a HUGE detriment to us, and weakens my desire to use IMDB to show my credits list to my clients. I personally feel that ratings have no business being in the database to begin with.

Can you please respond to this.

There’s a fundamental problem with the categories available. I was just looking up Jennifer Lopez, and all her Music video entries appear under the Actor category.  This is obviously wrong as she was appearing as the character “Jennifer Lopez” in all these “Movies”.  It makes trying to find a movie in which she played a particular character very difficult. 
There needs to be another category to cover for when actors are being themselves, like in music videos, or interviews, or awards ceremonies.

I rmemeber thinking this I believe before the redesign. But anyhoo, music videos should not be listed under film credits, unless its actually adapted into a short film, like Michael Jacksons Thriller, or... another music video that forms part of a short.
