Hi, 2 episodes / one credits was removed from my profile. l added them back last night. I’d like to know why they were removed and why they have not been added back yet . l can provide evidence that l was in fact a character (Bofuki Nepoo) on Dirk Gently season 2. .The episodes aired on Nov 11 and Nov 18, 2017 and it’s very clear l am in both episodes as l watched them both; “girl power” and “shapes and colours”. l also have the call sheet and other paperwork and can provide this along with several photos including myself standing in front of the circus trailer with my character name on it . l was the only Bofuki Nepoo hired to be featured as an ACTOR not an extra. Please correct this error. It effects my future castings and l have a huge callback this week . Credits like this are very important . My character name was Bofuki Nepoo #1 and if you view my profile there’s a picture of me as this character.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for your message it looks like these credits were removed by another user. If you wish to add further evidence of a sensitive nature please follow the below instructions.

1) Find your original submission in your update history at http://www.imdb.com/updates/history

2) Verify that all the data is still valid. If you need to update/amend the information, you can do so and resubmit the entry.

3) Make a note of the update reference number (it's the number composed of three groups of 6 digits separated by dashes, e.g. [i]121027-090001-134000[/i])

4) Go to this page: http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_verification

5) Fill in the form with all the information (the update reference number and all the URLs pointing to the additional verification for that submission). At least one link is mandatory. If you have more than three, use the 'comment' field to add them.

6) Enter any additional information, comment or feedback in the 'comment' field. The more data/evidence you supply, the better.

l have submitted a response through the link you have provided with the call sheet indicating the character name, actor number and 2 episodes etc... very early this morning. I’m wondering how long it takes to have these credits back up. I’d also like to know if the credits were removed by a person in Production who made an error or someone else as there is a person awaiting trial for stalking me on the internet through various sites. If it’s this person he needs to be reported for violating his bail conditions.

Hi Sarah,

First let me say that I am not an IMDb employee. I'm just a normal data contributor. I have made many contributions to the Dirk Gently page, though I have not made it to the episodes you mention. Generally, it would take about 24-48 hours for your credit to appear but in your case it may take slightly longer since you are having to provide proof of credit. Also, in case you aren't an American, realize that tomorrow is a holiday and lots of people are also off on Friday, so that may affect when the credit goes live as well.

As for the other part, I would hope it is an honest mistake. I generally will look at the uncredited roles to see if they make sense for an episode. I don't generally delete them unless they are obviously wrong. For example, if someone is credited as "Wedding Party Member" but there was no wedding, I'd delete that. Otherwise, I'd leave it alone as long as it is properly credited with the attribute "uncredited".

I hope this is nothing more than a mistake. I'm not sure that IMDb knows any more of the contributors than the user name and email they have registered for it.

Thanks for clarifying. l found it very odd they were removed because the credits have been there for quite awhile.
This should not be an uncredited role. Hannah is represented by the largest talent agency in Vancouver, not an extra’s Agency.. This role was small and the other characters similar to hers (Bofuki Nepoo’s) were all extras. I watched both episodes and Hannah’s in them. She’s on the callsheet with an actor number and was featured in an actor role. They referred to her as “the Canadian one” in the episodes as indicated by a Canadian leaf on her chest as part of her wardrobe. These characters are in full body makeup with coloured troll like wigs so they’re hard to tell apart.
Your very likely correct that it’s an honest mistake however this person awaiting trial did open countless social media accounts in Hannah’s name all over the internet and he obtained our email address from Hanah’s IMDb profile which he used to send graphic emails containing very illegal content directed to Hannah who was 11 at the time. He has a very odd obsession with all things film and it seems with Hannah.

Hi Sarah,

I guess I misunderstood a little. I thought it was a credit for you that you were looking for. If Hannah was credited on screen as Bofuki Nepoo, then all that is really required is a screenshot of said credit. I have both of these episodes on my DVR and I will be watching them over the holiday. I will try and take a screenshot for this discussion when I watch them.

Hi Sarah,

I can see that you've been speaking to some of my colleagues via the helpdesk and they've accepted the credits for Hannah with the (uncredited) attribute to align with our policies.

Regards,
Will

Hi Will,

I'm currently watching the episode "Shapes and Colours". This means that I'm editing the cast list on IMDb and Hannah Zirke is not listed in the cast listing. I will add her. (I know it is Thanksgiving so maybe that is contributing to the delay.)
