I'm trying to change the titles of crew from my film and the site won't let me edit

I have listed several crew members incorrectly on my film's page, but when I try to fix this, the site won't let me access the crew members in many categories.  It simply says "no existing data," but when I look at my film's page, I can see the crew listed as I had previously (incorrectly) done.

When you see it on the page but not on the edit form it means the data was added so recently that it hasn't completely updated yet. You'll have to wait an additional day or two and check back to see if the names are there.

Thank you.  But I made these changes more than a week ago.  How long does it take IMDb to update?

Did you submit them a week ago or did they appear on the page a week ago. The delay I am talking about takes place after the edits appear on the page.

In general, submissions take 1-7 days to process (and the edit form updates afterwards). You can check the expected amount of time for a particular job by looking at the Data Processing Times.

If you mean that the submission processed and appeared on the page over a week ago and the form still hasn't updated, perhaps staff can take a look and see if there is an issue there. But, I've never heard of that happening.
