If it was just added, you might just need to wait a day or two. Changes appear on the page fairly quickly but related forms/pages update a little more slowly. It's a regular thing for the new entry to appear a day or two before the edit form is updated.

Yes, it's possible to correct mistakes. However, I am not sure from your comments what needs to be corrected. Can you clarify and provide links to the pages involved?

The name, as a heading, on the IMDb Page in your name should be the same as how you're credited on screen most often and how you will be credited going forward. It, like all data on the site, can be corrected.

If you mean they credited you incorrectly on screen, that should be added to the page in your name and then the mistake documented with an "(as...)" attribute. If this credit ended up on a separate page, it should be merged into your normal page.

If it was correct on screen but added into IMDb wrong, that can also be corrected.

But, can you specify which, if any, of these scenarios apply? The fix is different for all.

My name is listed as a Casting Extras person, and that is not correct. My comany did that, and it should be written the name of the Company and not me as a person. So I have to eather delete my name or change it to the name of the Company. Its for a tv Serial, and its written under the Casting Department. When I og to edit, and try to change /delete I get the Message there is not DATA EXISTING. And when I try to click the button were its written ; To update data for categories that aren't listed above, select this Box , And the information does not come after I click this button eather. It seems like the name of the persons who has been working in this producation is not listed under the different categories of work. All the boxes are empty, no name comes up and no obsion to edit og delte is possible then.

On which page? Can you post a link or at least describe it?

How is it credited on screen?

I am assuming that you are talking about the TV Series Frikjent.

Almost all credits (some exceptions are made for Companies) are not actually maintained at the Series level. Instead they are entered on the Episode pages, and that data is 'rolled up' to be displayed on the Series page. For that reason, any credit corrections/deletions must be made to the individual Episode pages or to your Name page. When Adding Episode credits, it is always recommended to work from the Title page(s) since the format of the Episode Title is co complex, but corrections/deletions may be easier from the name page, since a change can be made to all Episodes in a single submission.

As to the correctness of the credits, that depends on what is shown on screen when the episodes air. If your name is shown on screen, then these credits should stay on IMDb.

A company name cannot be substituted for a person's name in Casting Department credits. Only people can be listed in Cast and Crew sections. A company would have to be added to the Miscellaneous Companies section.
