Changing information n the "Known For" section of my page is impossible and needs to be changed The number one thing listed there, no one even knows I did!! My most notable roles are not even there, but are in my filmography. This section should be changed to allow the artists, or their representatives (manager or PR Rep, maybe?) to make changes, so the information reflects CURRENT things and not things I did more than 5 years ago that weren't even SAG/AFTRA, but STUDENT films. Not good.  Not happy about this at all.

There is no way to "fix" them.  It is an automated process that uses, among other things, the popularity of the pages involved.  It's a process that serves the search functions of the site and is not meant to make your page look like a resume in which you can manipulate the process to change it.

Russ and Richard: Unfortunately to report, there is nothing you can do to change the titles that you are "known for" according to IMDb. The titles are selected automatically by an algorithm, the details of which are not made known to the public. See http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domain=helpdesk_faq&index=1&file=knownfortopfaq&ref_=hlp... for further information.

Following up to my prior post, it is now possible to change the titles that you are "known for" if you are an IMDbPro subscriber. See http://pro.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?knownforcontrols for details.
