On my page I'm listed as uncredited for the first Ep. of Winter "Skeltons" https://pro-labs.imdb.com/name/nm3994870?ref_=hm_nv_usr_prof, however, I'm credited in the show. Please find attached screenshots. I'm credited under the character MARVIN REID. Please adjust. Thanks

Hey Geordie,

That uncredited attribute is attached to episode #2, {Gone Girl (#1.2)} NOT episode #1, {Skeletons (#1.1)}
Your screencap is from Episode #1, where you are properly listed as credited in cast position #14.

Note that both cast lists, as presented on IMDb, show 23 credited names corresponding probably to 11 regular cast names presented in the opening titles and another 12 names (4 to a page) in the end credits. This (all slots filled with other ordered names) is an indication, though certainly not proof, that you weren't credited on Gone Girl. If you were indeed credited on episode #2, you'll need to provide evidence from that program to substantiate it.

An uncredited listing for cast has some rules not requires for various crew positions. Rule #5 in the FAQ, I worked on a title but did not receive a screen credit. Can I be listed on IMDb?, states

5. For cast/acting appearances, you must be identifiable and featured on-screen in the final released cut of the title. In other words, it's not enough to have worked on a production: your scenes must be included in the final cut and it must be possible to easily identify your appearance (i.e. background work as a crowd member or a similar role where it is impossible to recognize the subject are not eligible). If you ended up on the cutting room floor, you are not eligible to be listed. We may ask you to supply evidence of this, so you should be prepared to provide photos/stills/screen grabs to verify that you are featured.

Additionally, an appearance only in the prologue ("Previously on Winter") or epilogue ("Next time on Winter"), does not count for cast listing purposes as a valid credit.Any screencapture evidencing your uncredited participation in Episode #2 should come from the episode proper, not from those opening/closing scenes.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Mayor Defacto for the reply. I went through this a year ago with the same problem and not sure why it's like this again. Here is the previous thread:https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/i-am-credited-please-remove-uncredited-tv-episode
Please find attached screenshots from the second ep credits from the DVD. I'll also attach screenshots.

Hi, Geordie:

Both episodes are on Youtube:
And, unfortunately, you are clearly not credited in the second episode:

Hence, the current (uncredited) attribute is correct.

They weird thing is that the two screenshots attached indeed belong to the second episode (@20 mins) and you have much more time on screen and spoken dialogue than in the first episode (in which I can't found you anywhere!! InterroganteInterrogante). Please also note that, even if it were a mistake on Seven Network Australia's part that had been fixed on the DVD version, the (uncredited) attribute would still be applicable to episode #2 because the cast listings on IMDB are driven by the first aired/public released version of a title. Furthermore, if you're actually not featured in episode #1 (may you please indicate at which point you appear on screen?) the attribute (credit only) should be attached to your entry in that episode.

Wow, you're right! OKOK

Sorry, I watched the episode at x4 speed and I missed your appearance. In my defence I must say that you're featured in only 39 frames (1''56@25fps), but time enough for you to be clearly recognized, so happily the (credit only) attribute is not applicable in this case.

Thanks ljdoncel 

So, do I need to get a letter from someone in production as this is clearly a technical error? I'm currently in the process of obtaining my Greencard (a requirement of which states multiple episode credits) and although this may seem like a minor detail actually has a major affect on the outcome. What can I do to right this wrong? How come it was mended a year ago when this occurred?

No, you don't No... because it would have no effect at all... (there are many other examples of similar situations like yours). As I commented above, the first release is the one that counts, and even if the credits were amended now, it wouldn't change the way they're reflected on the database. I understand how you may feel, but think of it this way: you appear as "uncredited" in an episode where you should have been credited on screen, but currently you appear as "credited" in an episode where you probably shouldn't have been listed on screen (non-speaking role featured less than 2 seconds)...

Hi Geordie -

No, as ljdoncel mentioned, further evidence isn't required.  Unfortunately, even if there was a technical error that prevented your name from being listed on the credits, if it wasn't listed the 'uncredited' attribute is listed correctly and will need to remain.
