Separate background actors/extras from regular cast on movies

I find the addition of extras/background actors to IMDb increasingly distracting. During the production phase most of them do not even add an "uncredited" but try to sneak in as normal cast member, even though they know they will not get a credit - and while doing so totally clutter up the cast list

Hi! I'm adding new titles to IMDb for two years now out of my very busy schedule. But the biggest frustration I'm having is the lack of proper categories & metadata for video game titles. Video games are released for different platforms like Windows, iOS & PlayStation and have different

I'd like to suggest adding warnings to shows that contain any kind of dog violence. Example: John Wick. Would have liked to know about the doggie dying before I watched. I was traumatized :(

Add an "Episodes level" for the vintage Movie Serials format

The IMDB lists individual episodes of TV series. (A long time ago, they did not.) Would it not be logical to do the same thing for the vintage movie serials of the first part of last century? Their episodes are almost exactly the same as television episodes. And right now they can't, for example, ha

Add images (and all other) new contribution types to the contribution history page

Although I get an email confirming my image contribution (example: IMDb update receipt #180422-161133-961102), and it has a link to view its status, I'd really like to see that contribution on the page https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history/ Any chance that's on the IMDb To Do list?

Idea: Add mental health/trigger warning to parents guide

Hi IMDB, would you be able to add a mental illness warning/trigger warning section to the parents guide? It could use the same severity ratings as the violence, sex and drugs categories, but it would focus on potential triggers for people. For example, I have recently become aware that people with e

Suggestion to bring back the this number of reviews have been deleted function

Hi, Before IMDb changed its format around 2017, reviewers were able to see at the top of our review page how many reviews of ours had been deleted, either by us or removed through reporting. We were also able to see which reviews had been deleted/removed. Something that was incredibly helpful. From
