If I have numerous credits as *Self* + only 1 old credit as *Misc Crew* -why isn't *Self* listed as my primary profession on top of my page?

Is there a way to re-submit my numerous *Self* credits so that the number of these override the 1 *Misc Crew* primary profession listed at top under my name?

I will edit the "Self" listings to allow "Self" profession to be my main, if so.

It's not well-known, but I used to be a medium for mediums.
Hope this time this helps the staff to help Carla )))
Please wait a minute for attachments to this post.

Charlie -

Will the "Miscellaneous Crew" still remain as profession under my name on page, or no?

Yes, Misc Crew will remain.
All that will happen is that the credit will now be reflected with an (uncredited) attribute.

Hi, Carla:

As Peter has commented, nobody has "Self" listed at the top of their page, not even those who only have self credits, because it is not one of the 40 primary professions currently acknowledged by .

As of today (5 May 2019)... PRIMARY PROFESSIONS:
      actor  ~ 2,218,360 names
      actress  ~ 1,317,151 names
      animation department  ~ 146,789 names
      art department  ~ 331,812 names
      art director  ~ 68,844 names
      assistant  ~ 2,886 names
      assistant director  ~ 187,737 names
      camera department  ~ 571,147 names
      casting department  ~ 40,679 names
      casting director  ~ 23,565 names
      cinematographer  ~ 263,819 names
      composer  ~ 226,275 names
      costume department  ~ 110,036 names
      costume designer  ~ 57,517 names
      director  ~ 504,994 names

      transportation department  ~ 70,542 names
      visual effects  ~ 163,469 names
      writer  ~ 624,283 names

What you see when you do a search is not the primary profession, but the section/department on which the person worked, in the film for which that person is best known for (according to the site). This department does not necessarily have to match a primary profession nor even be the primary profession of the name.

E.g. James Galway. Professions: Music Department/Soundtrack/Actor. Best known for: Miscellaneous


Therefore, "Self" won't appear as a primary profession under your name... at least for now, sorry.

Hope it helps. Cheers!

Thank you, ljdoncel. That list is comprehensive, but wondering now if I should change my credit listing to another on that current list so my main profession reflects on IMDb accurately.

But WHICH one would fit - I have starred in several paranormal reality tv series as an internationally- known psychic medium, & psychic crime profiler.

Could an IMDb representative answer, as well, on this?

Carla, hi again.
Since this thread is unfortunately marked as "solved", it might be better to start anew if you believe, or better say "know for sure", that you've never been involved in other stand-ins and/or other acting (except "self" in documentaries or reality shows) that can be listed on IMDb under other similar names (profiles). In such case, it seems unreasonable to keep the only aside role of yours, moreover uncredited one, to shadow the main intensive activity on screen.

You can enter those appearances as an paranormal reality tv series as an internationally- known psychic medium, & psychic crime profiler into the database. If you appeared as yourself, you will have more "Self Credits." If you were given a character name, then they would be listed as an acting credit.

Those credits as "Self" with qualifier after - psychic medium, or psychic profiler have all been done already. ;)
