My credits for my current show are all screwed up. There are several different titles and there should be only one. I've tried correcting the errant credits and deleting them, nothing has has changed.

Under my credits for Late Night with Seth Meyers, I am listed under several different job titles.  In fact, they are all the same, but apparently other people have entered them in using different wording.  As a result it looks really sloppy.  It would be really nice if they all read as 'evs operator' as the bulk of my show (and career) credits do.  I would appreciate it if my page looked 'clean'.

As I've said I tried to do this by correcting the credits.  I resubmitted twice, nothing happened.  Most recently (July 29), I tried deleting the ill-worded credits so that I could re-enter them correctly but nothing happened after that either.

Thank you for your help and attention.

How do the credits appear on screen?

It appears it's correctly entered on IMDb (which documents on screen credits) based on the on screen credits as can be seen:

All the titles really mean the same exact thing.  I've done the same thing on every episode.  Is there any way to consolidate the titles so it doesn't look so sloppy?

Again, I've tried both editing the titles and deleting to no effect.


Thanks!

PS thanks for the screen grab, I've never seen my credit on air.

So do you know of a way I can clean these credits up?

IMDb documents the on screen credits for film and TV. So if the IMDb page correctly shows what appeared on screen, there is nothing to "clean up." An IMDb page about you is not a resume in any way, shape or form (though they offer, via Pro, an option to have a resume linked to the page in your name, where you certainly can clean it up as you like) but a factual documentation of what appeared on screen.

If any of the credits appear differently on screen than the way they do on the IMDb page, you can submit requests to correct them by going to the title's page and clicking "edit page" and then choosing the department and credit to change, and submitting it. You might have to add screen captures because in most cases, while submitting the info, someone is watching the credits and so it's usually worded as seen on screen. So you might have to prove the error.

If you have specific items that are entered wrong, if you describe them folks here can assist you in submitting, but you shouldn't change things just to "clean up" the page and word them all the same.

More likely.a PA from the show entered them here.

I tried the resume hosting, it was pretty sloppy and expensive. LinkedIn works, is free, and has much better customer support.

Guess I'll just stop linking to my IMdb page then. Getting into this sounds too difficult.

Thanks for your time.
