January 31, 2018 is the oldest goof that still needs to be corrected is incorrect. I posted a correction in 2014-12-05, again in 2015-05-23, again in 2015-08-30 and just now 2018-02-03 that STILL has not been corrected. All for the same cast character issue in "The Breakfast Club" 1985. John Kapelos plays the janitor "Carl" and is credited as such. However, as seen in the opening sequence, we see Shermer High School's "Man of the Year" for 1969. It is a picture of Carl REED, the janitor.

Hello, Paul. 

Have you tried providing a screenshot uplooaded elsewhere (Dropbox, for example; or you can actually do that here, in the thread) and then submit the update anew with the link in explanation and description?

As stated in the guide for goofs at https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/goofs/GFDUF27RBTQGS8UZ
  • A goof is an unintentional error in the film making process that in some way breaks the spell and takes us momentarily outside the world created by that movie
You appear to be trying to report as cast list change which against IMDb policy, sorry.  

The IMDb cast list at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088847/ already correctly matches the end credits:



From https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/characters/GKLQVXKH7U8DATWX

  • Wherever possible, we list character names as they appear in on-screen credits, i.e. the end titles cast listing. We make occasional exceptions when character names are not listed on-screen or when the character descriptions in the end titles include spoilers, but as a rule we try to stick to credits as closely as possible

I am not reporting a goof for one.
I see your point but that is not accurate at all in this case.
You see, that is what makes Carl's position even funnier.
Here is that opening screen shot again:

Not finding it.
And I have searched both trivia and spoilers for Carl Reed & Man of the Year
Besides, needs to be at the cast despite the guidelines in this case
