I worked on two episodes of Toddlers & Tiaras but now my IMDB page continues to add more episodes of the show to my page as they appear. It now says I've worked on 16. How do I prevent this from continuing to happen?

Your credits usually wouldn't be added to new episodes unless someone submitted them. Some of these episodes have unusually many credits listed:

Staff should look into this.

I have already deleted 12 of the 14 extra but Staff hasn't gotten to it yet. I double check to see if it's done and then there are new episodes added.

It sounds like someone is going through clicking the button to add all the people previously credited in an episode, but if you do that you need to edit it to match the credits before submitting or this happens and it is more difficult to remove them than add them.

Could staff look into this - it might be one user hammering through the whole series, which generates a lot of cheap submissions quickly but degrades the overall data. They might need contacting and/or there other edits need looking at.

Yes, it's a likely a case of someone incorrectly assuming that the same crew worked on a number of episodes of the same season. We're looking into this.

Justin, can you please confirm, just to make sure we're on the same page, what are the titles/numbers of the two episodes of the show where you are credited?

It seems that another episode has been added since my last comment. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2621490/?r...
