I am having an issue with 2 credits and they are not documentaries. I added "re-enactment" to the episode keywords and submitted changes and its not working. Can you help me?

First- 
The Fourth Annual 'On Cinema' Oscar Special (Video) 
Herself / Marilyn Monroe

*They won't let me change the character to just "Marilyn Monroe" when that is the role I played. It is listed under Self instead of Actress, where it should be.

Second-
This Is Not Happening (TV Series) 
Gorgeous Girl
Drugs, Drugs, Drugs ... Gorgeous Girl

*This should aslo be listed under Actress credits not Self.

I don't understand and this is such a headache to try to get changed. Everything keeps getting declined! I read that if you add the keyword "re-enactment" to the episode it would help change the credit. I did exactly that and nothing! Imdb should have customer support for someone to chat with to get these issues resolved.

One thing to note: the keyword should actually be written as ”reenactment” (without the dash, so not ”re-enactment”). You could try correcting that, perhaps it makes the difference?

Hi Amber, 

I have submitted this credit change on your behalf and this change should be live on the site shortly. 

Thanks

Thank you so much!!! I figured it would be too difficult but since you got it to work can the tv series Mystery Diners be moved to my Actress credits also? There are 8 episodes listed under my Self Section. I played different roles but it’s all listed as myself.
