I worked on the movie Once upon a time in Hollywood as background so I know 100 percent this girl was hired as background not principal. My friend has submitted this explanation to IMDB and they keep ignoring it and keep fake credit on their site for no reasons with no explanation. The movie is out and IMDB still keeps declining to remove this credit why is IMDB approving fake credits for random people and refuses to remove it even when proof is out? This is for Elizabeth Ferarra on Once upon a time in Hollywood movie. Submitting proof of their response with no explanation. In fact half of the people on that IMDB page are uncredited the movie is out so how long will it take for IMDB to remove all the fake credits and mark as uncredited???

Just use "uncredited" only attribute. Leave out "featured background". For the character name it is best to use a description that is as short as possible that says what she was doing.
Example: Woman at Party. Woman at Pool. Woman on Sidewalk. Woman in Diner. Woman Dancing.
If you read those submission guidelines it may help you to understand better. Featured background is definitely the cause for the rejection.
Resubmit the credit and it should go through if you follow the guidelines advice.

Ok so everyone here lets start posting your ideas to solution to this :) they want proof. Anyone has idea how to proof her name is not in final credits? I saw the movie so I know it but do we need to take photos of all cast credits to prove it? Dont u think IMDB should be the one doing this? It is their job to be accurate

I did. I submitted all options and they keep ignoring and declining it. Plus Im not sure if your understanding it. I am trying to remove this fake credit, as well as I tried to submit it as uncredited background and still declined
Anyone knows how to reach to IMDB to do their job? What guidelines do you mean exactly? If I submit something for being fake what guidelines are there for it?

A. It's not fake. You alluded to it above.
B. I submitted all options and they keep ignoring and declining it. What all options.
C. Doing this here or by direct contact gets you in contact with the same employees.

Now to facilitate this matter, take a screenshot of your last submission and post it here with that submission number.

You can find that 18 digit number and the original submission image by selecting it for viewing at,

What do u mean by "it is not fake I alluded it here"? R u saying someone working as background should get credited as principal with credit? As far as I know background people do not get any credits or are uncredited. So why is this credit there at all? The question was what guidelines. You did not respond to that. All options meaning uncredited, background, remove... why do I need to be posting tracking numbers? I posted screenshot. It clearly says it was declined. Do u work for IMDB ? Or why do u need this tracking number? Also interestingly the screenshot in my 1st post is no longer in my history so they are obviously reading this yet not doing their jobs. Do these people who get these fake credits approved pay them off or how does this work I wonder. How does employee decide based on no proof he will apporove this made up credit? And than decides to decline when someone submits correction? Based on what? Their current mood?

Please don't take a meaning out of context in the topic above to prove a point.

She is eligible. You said so in your description. Was it a lie? Or was it Fact?

Your submissions so far have not met contribution guidelines.
Tell me what she did in the movie (Bit Part Description) and I will submit and screenshot it so you know how a correct one looks like.

You said she is eligable? Eligable for what? I am really confused how are you not understanding of what background is. Are you saying bacgkround people are eligable to get credits? They are not :) the problem here is the submission of her credit is not eligable. That is the problem. It is made up and fake :) why was it approved? As I said many times she was bacgkround if you are not understanding this I am not sure how to explain it to you but the very screenshot of what I wrote that u reposted clearly said she was bacgkround :) background people do not get credits as principals :)

So if she is not in final credits why does she still have credit? Why doesnt it say uncredited? Why was it approved before the movie was out? Without any kind of proof? When I clearly submitted back than that she was hired as background :)

Hi Nena, 

As Ed has stated, uncredited entries must be listed with a specific character name for them to be identifiable on screen. Therefore modifications to change the character to 'Background' and the attribute of 'uncredited' will not be approved. If you are able to confirm what role she can be identified as, please resubmit with this in the character field and the attribute of 'uncredited' and our data editors will review this further. 

Thanks
Meredith

Does the "who submitted it" make a difference between someone hired as main cast and someone hired as background? I do not see that connection...:) big budget productions never submit credits for background as principals I know that much :)

Jeorj, this is an unusual circumstance. Look at the enormity of the cast list. It will probably be 18-36 months before every last one of those credits is finalized. Lets hope that this example serves to warn off those that would take away a valid acting credit based on IMDb's arbitrary rules, or a misinterpretation by a contributor like this one. (Nena) This cast list should be protected from any deletions that were added prior to it's premier date.

It is not unusual at all. I see people submitting fake credits all the time and IMDB approving them. They approve based on no facts, give more value to productions over actors often. Cheap productions want exposure without paying actor so they submit fake credit. Actor cant remove it. Abusive

Ed in my opinion the cast list can not be approved unless verified 1st. It is easy to google who was really cast in this movie as for the small actors they shouldnt be approved unless submitted by production or unless movie is out and credits verified.

You've not explained how you know whether or not a submission was approved without evidence being supplied, Nena. The system is not nearly transparent enough for IMDb non-staff to know these things, apart from the contributors who are actually submitting these inaccurate pieces of information.

So I reported problem with IMDB approving fake credits and some contributor here is concerned with spelling and background category instead the the fact that IMDB approved made up credits with no proof... attention disorder or employee pretending to be contributor?

Nikolay no I am not interested if ur an actor if u read properly ud know that was reference to Ed mocking and attacking actors. You seem to be preoccupied with something else just like Ed not with resolving this like Gromit is. Focus your attention on the problem which is this fake credit :) This person is never seen in this movie it is several people who confirmed it with me who watched it. Your speculations are pointless. U r someone who is posting here with no help or resolution just like Ed only for personal attacks perharps out of boredom. If ur here daily u should have had this resolved already otherwise ur wasting your time. Credit is fake u can go watch movie for yrself.. Im posting about this 1 person because I know her credit is fake. Why r u bothered about this? If I happen to work with her and know her credit is fake why should I be posting about anyone else here?
If it is your hobby why havent u gone to see this movie yet and resolve this? And since u agree making transcript of all credits is impossible what do u think needs to be done here?
The problem here is not if shes seen as extra, the problem is she is not main cast, is not seen as main cast, is not in final credits as main cast therefore should have no credit as main cast on IMDB.

Nena why on Earth are you trying to prove that with one particular person you know, though? Why not go further and try and delete everyone in this title with no clearly defined role? Especially, you know, well known actors who still don't have any specified role, like Zoë Bell, Leslie BegaMartin KoveClu GulagerMarco RodríguezCraig Stark? The fact that you haven't noticed someone in the movie and your friends also haven't noticed her is not exactly a valid point in the movie with cast of hundreds including extras, which likely has at least 5 dozens of cast credits. Especially since it's a Quentin Tarantino movie where, you know, this can happen: 

This is a credit for extras of a scene in Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003) where virtually everyone is masked and making out who ended up in which shot is virtually impossible. If there is a similar scenario for how Playboy Bunnies are credited in the movie it's rather possible that both credit and appearance could've slipped past you. 
   
Main cast is a term from television credits which has a well-known and clearly defined meaning: people who have season-wide contracts and are usually credited in each and single episode even if they do not appear. "Main cast" is not a term which is in use for movies, because movies are not episodic. As I've sad earlier, I'm not sure about "principal cast". Anyhow, on IMDb there are listings, not credits. There are listings for credited actors and uncredited actors and in case of movies which are still in cinemas or not yet, there are also credits with no attributes, because no one did a comprehensive word-for-word transcript of end credits.

How do u know SS fight team are extras? Do u have any proof they werent hired as stunts? Fight teams r usually stunts.. Nothing has slipped past me. The girl said herself her manager submitted it for exposure. I was there with her as an extra. I have seen the movie so I know for fact she has no credit nor is she seen. I am encouraging u to go see this for yourself since it is your hobby. Than post suggestion here how to prove to IMDB this credit is made up lie. Principal/main cast is cast who is hired on principal contract as an actor. Than there are extras who are hired as extras.

Nena, these are indeed considered stunt credits by IMDb standards. I used that as an example that credits on Tarantino movies differ from usual ones, a consistent trait I've seen in most of his movies regarding stunts and cast. 

Essentially, let's break down what you're saying here: 
1) You were on the set of this very movie with Elisabeth Ferrara and seen her working as an extra. 
2) You've heard that her manager put her credit there and also that it was "for exposure", which could've just meant that mere fact of involvement is good exposure. You might argue that you've heard it right, but you keep missing points in this very discussion when repeated numerous times, so I'm not sure on this one. No offence, just an observation.  
3) Despite you were on set you offer no proof whatsoever that you've been there, so your claim is not exactly substantiated. Actress herself has an IMDb Pro account which is backed by a solid agency in LA. Who has more say in that: essentially anonymous figure claiming that her role is fake or agency which have definitely seen the contract?  
4) What you're trying to say is that "principal cast" and extras are two very different contract types with SAG-AFTRA?  I won't pretend I'm an expert, but as far as I know SAG-AFTRA contracts are very specific and usually mention smaller parts as bit players on high budget productions if there are spoken lines. However I've never seen a SAG-AFTRA contract which said that bit players are indeed a part of principal cast. I've also never seen the latter term used in such contracts, for that matter.

Nikolay stunts are hired on principal contracts just as actors are. They get residuals as well. They are not extras so their credits should never be compared to extras.
What I have posted here is that the movie is out, the proof is out. There is no need to speculate if I saw her on set or what she said. There is a fact that she is not in final credits, proof that she was never hired as principal cast / as an actor. So what proof do u think IMDB wants/should get to correct this?

Nena, just my five cents on this one: while most background performers know for certain they won't be credited, adding oneself with no role or status is okay in cases when you don't know what is the larger context of a scene and whether will you be credited. Considering that we have a few recent worrying cases of extras credited in stunts for little to no reason, it might be just precautions to not list anything about status and role. 

Cases like that happen A LOT on major productions (a case from 2012 which was particularly memorable), so your enthusiasm over this particular cases looks like overracting and/or grudge with this particular person. I'm not saying that this is what's going on, but it looks like it, anyway. 

Also, I'm not exactly sure on what you mean by "principal" cast. If that term includes all credited entries in SAG-AFTRA terminology it's fine but I mostly heard that as another term for main cast in the TV series and/or people in the opening credits. It's worrying to hear that used by one background performer for his work on a TV series recently and then by you because of that: I'm always open to possibility of the fact that it's fault in my knowledge, but I'm not sure on this one case.

Well this credit has been there for long time. As I said earlier Elizabeth told my friend her manager submitted it for her to get exposure. That is the big question here what proof do they want that someone is not in a movie?

Principal cast mean she had speaking role and credit. Background means no speaking role no credit. Adding oneself as principal as oppose to background when u know u were background is never ok. It is lie. It is the difference between being credited and uncredited :)

Nena, IMDb lists different Cast credits. Speaking role or not, credited or not. Whatever the credit or the role is, ”featured background”, ”background actor”, etc type of character names are not accepted.

So: if you want your credit to be approved on IMDb, you have to take these issues in consideration:
1) Is your name credited in the actual credits? If not...
2) ...you should add your name with the attribute ”uncredited” AND you should add a proper character description like ”Woman in the nightclub”, ”Woman in the street”, ”Woman at the party”. Even when the actor only appears in the background and doesn’t have any real lines, she/he is in certain location/place/scene in the film/story.
3) With ”uncredited” roles, you should probably first confirm that you’re visible (e.g. on the background etc) on the scene in the final cut of the film. Pay stubs and contracts can prove that you worked for the film, but not necessarily prove that you actual appear (on-screen) in the film.

Get real.
As Nikolay Yerioman pointed out you are focused on this one person.
There are 50 or so other credits that you do not care about that have the same credit status.
You are Cyber Bullying all persons here with you single minded attack on Ms. Ferrera.
Shame on you. You dont care if the database is accurate.
You are obviously out to do harm to her.

Yes but this conversation is about removing someone elses fake credit and IMDB declining to remove it based on no facts. Girl is hired as background. Gets approved for real credit for no reason. Person submits this false credit to IMDB and they decline to remove it even though they have the information this person was not hired as main cast actor but as background. Why do they keep credit for this girl once they know she was background and is not credited in movie? Shouldnt they logically remove it once they know she is not credited in the movie? No matter if she was seen as background or was background at all or what category background she was.. who cares. Point is she is not part of credited main cast so they have no business appproving her credit as main cast.

No, that's not how it works. Ideally you provide some backing for your credit: call sheet, SAG-AFTRA agreement, etc. That is especially relevant in cases when there are not much of credits.

That is how it works. Call sheet will not help u get credit. The only way to get credit is to have your name listed in final credits :) do your research. Lets say u book a part on project but they forget to put your name in final credits on screen. IMDB will not approve it. The only proof they go by is screenshot of final credits if u do bit research in this page u will find this out :)

Also why are you defending IMDB approving fake credits? It is very strange. Are you saying IMDB should keep fake credits?

It depends upon whether the production status is correctly set to "released" or not. There really should be something in the IMDb Help articles to clarify this.

No to first post for removal. No one has provided proof that it does not belong.

IMDB requires proof that a removal is warranted. Not just some say so by a contributor. Exception is the original submitter of the title page.

Your attempt to correct without reading the rules first is your fault.

Second post is a fabrication and a lie

Seems that anyone can submit any credit on IMDB and just hope it ll get approved doesnt matter if they actually worked on that movie or not.
True then/and False 
Anyone can contribute. Hope is not in play. It actually matters if they worked on it.
IMDB employees approve without any facts most likely based on their moods :)

Approval on Moods? Please!

See the pattern?
IMDb's sandbox..........IMDb's Rules.

Don't play by the rules...............Suspension from the school.
You have basically been temporarily suspended/rejected.


Please move along.
You're not swaying anyone's opinion.
Your attempt to now reverse your original statement that she was in the movie as featured background and are now claiming that she is not in the movie because you went to see it and did not see her is now made your credibility questionable or shall we say not trustworthy.

Your attempts to disrupt other posts and threads in this community has not gone unnoticed either.

I would ask that you respect others posts and not SPAM them with your comments.
I would ask that you respect the staff at IMDb and not question their "Moods" as a means by which they make decisions.
I would ask that you respect others that are here to help you and all that come here to do so.

U need to post resolutions here not personal attacks :) do u have any? If not stop posting :) no one cares about your frustrations and psychological issues :) This girls manager submitted fake credit for her to get exposure. That is what she told my friend. So of u have any resolution to how to remove this fake credit feel free to post. Do not post any personal attacks here no one is interested. IMDB is wrong in doing what they did and continue doing. Employees are negligent, lazy and require people to post ridiculous proof as for example proof u r not in movie. Meaning send photo of all credits. How difficult is it to crop someone name out from screenshot? Not at all so what kind of proof is that? Ridiculous :) I have seen this ridiculous request in numerous posts here in this forum:) The manager who submitted this fake credit should be banned from contributing in future and IMDB need to change their policies and employee training. They need to not approve any credits until
proof is submitted. Not the other way around :)

Nena, again, please see the ”General rules” part from the IMDb guide for ”uncredited” credits. If certain conditions are met, ”uncredited” credits for so-called background/extra actors are accepted. Important part is that the actor actually appears on the screen and is identifiable.

I’m just stating the general facts here, obviously it’s case-by-case what are actually accepted etc. Uncredited credits can be tricky in some cases (as it probably should be).

”General Rules =

The following credits are likely to be discarded:

* Submissions with an empty character field or with descriptions such as "lead", "supporting" or "featured".

* We will accept "background" or "extra" if that's how the credit appears on screen, but "background", "extra" or "bit-part" will not be accepted as a character name on the title if the role does not receive an on-screen credit. If that is the case the character name should include a description of the part - Woman with Dog, for instance - and (uncredited) in the 'attribute' box. But see below - they must be recognizable.

* It is not enough to have just worked on a production: Their scenes must be included in the final cut and it must be possible to easily identify their appearance.
Background/extra work as a crowd member (or a similar role where it's impossible to recognize the subject)

That's the thing. The items are not necessarily declined. If the production status is "production unknown", "announced", "pre-production", "abandoned", "filming", "post-production" or "completed", then there is a strong chance that there will be some cast listing items that have empty role fields, perhaps added as part of the same submission as the title page creation process. Anyway, IMDb's policies are not always candid, clear and consistent, so sometimes we run into these "paradoxes", for lack of a better word. The policies are also subject to change, and whenever it does happen, data articles are not always updated to meet the newer guidelines. Also, sometimes updates are incorrectly approved or incorrectly declined, as it can go both ways. On occasion, there are updates that will be approved yet still do not go live, due to some kind of glitch. IMDb is a work-in-progress.

The fact that IMDB approves fake credits is wrong. Ed is rude he should be banned from this forum. Why are people here concerned about anything else other than the fact that this fake credit is still there?

When IMDB approves fake credit based on no actual proof they are being disrespectful towards the real actors and towards this whole industry. It is plain wrong.

Dear John.
You asked that IMDb remove all your posts.
They complied.
Yet here you are.
Shall I broach the subject with IMDb of your posting on topics just because you feel the need to contribute what.
You have made no direct constructive help here.
I'm am direct.
I have not called anyone any names, nor have I violated any policy.
Contribute please.
Attacking any Individual just because you have a perceived concept of rude is inappropriate and you should discontinue.

Dear Nena.
Pretty much the same thing applies for you also.
You lost Your argument, so you see fit to attack the messengers.
Me and IMDb staff. You have stated that they make approvals based on their moods.
You have said this twice. Once here and once while spamming another post.

Conclusion for both of you please.

I will not reply further on this post because you have been given the same answer here by 5 sources.

If either of you reply here, it is because of the need to have the last word.
Have at it.
This is not mine nor your playground. (IMDb's database)
Their rules are all that matter or apply.
Accept them.
I do.
The other 3 do.
And the employee Meredith is only doing her job applying those rules made by the founder of the website.

Stop attacking the messengers.

Cheers
Thanks for giving your opinions
:):)
Ed

Nena: Please clarify for me the following: Is Elisabeth Ferrera clearly visible on screen in the movie Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood?

Is her name listed in the on-screen credits?

If she is visible, but her name is NOT listed in the on-screen credits, then her IMDb listing should be corrected to (1) add a character description and (2) add the attribute (uncredited).

If she is visible, but her name IS listed in the on-screen credits, then her IMDb listing should be corrected to add her character name as listed in the credits, or if there is no character name listed for her in the credits despite her name being listed, to add a character description.

If she is not visible, and her name is NOT listed in the on-screen credits, then her IMDB cast listing for this film should be deleted.

If she is not visible (nor audible), but her name IS listed in the on-screen credits, then her IMDb cast listing should be corrected to add the attribute (scenes deleted) because you say that she did work on the film, and if she has a character name, that should be added as well.

Hello Gromit thank you for help. Answer is no shes not visible, not audible, no credit in final credits. I have watched the movie as well. It is one big NO to all. Her IMDB should be deleted.

Nena: Thank you for giving me a clear answer to my questions. However, by contrast, Ed has written above and in the other related thread that Elisabeth is seen in the uncredited role of a Hollywood Blvd. pedestrian. So I suspect that we will have to wait for the IMDb staff to settle this dispute.

Yes but the problem is Ed submitted a lie. She is never seen. Ed only submitted what he heard which was she worked as background category as pedestrian. Not that she was seen as one :) Ed shouldnt be submitting untrue statements if that is what he said.

If Elisabeth Ferrera neither is credited in nor appears in Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, then her name will eventually be removed from the cast listing on IMDb for this movie.

To whom it may concern, please be mindful of the following policy:
IMDb tracks each contributor's accuracy over time and if any contributor repeatedly submits data which is inaccurate or which violates our policies, their contributions will require increasing levels of additional proof in order to be processed.

Ed you keep harassing users here. I do not need to prove anything to you. I know the truth and I know how you lie here. I know the facts you dont and you are angry about it and keep harassing people about it. YET! THE MOVIE IS OUT SO YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF. Stop harassing people who try to remove fake credits here. Saying removing fake credit is attack on actor. You have no sense of logic. You should not be contributor. I am not the first one who said it nor the last one I bet.

Ed Jones (XLIX) I'm actually not sure on what happened, but it's rather likely he deleted himself because he said something about that.

The red sign above says community managers.

Ed. As Gromit stated she is not seen in the movie therefore her credit should be deleted all together. No one cares if she was pedestrian and where or not. As long as you keep acting as sockpuppet to IMDB I will act as one for anyone I please. You are just so unpleasent.

The above was John J. Now may he rest in Period.
His new name became       "  .  "
Alas poor period, I knew him well, John J a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath borne me on his back a thousand times, and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! For he hath abandoned us in our time of need. I miss him already. Come back sweet John J.
