Obviously wrong entries are refused to be corrected.
Further there seems to be no way to get in a resonable communication with the data editors.
They answer to dozens of mails like a bad programmed computer.
Desperatly try to erase my whole account.

What to do?

Hans,

First of all, refer to https://contribute.imdb.com/times to know when your submission is likely to be considered.

Above all, please make sure that the information you provide matches actual on-screen credit entries (especially with your last submission: deletion of 53 credits from another sound staff?!?!?).

Apparently, this carton lists people who have worked on the dubbing in German. Unfortunately, IMDb refuses to register anything outside the people involved in the original production. All dubbing work is off-limit (so far, as mentioned again by founder Col Needham lately).

Hi Vincent,

this is not exactly right.
ZDF Enterprises is a coproducer of the series and provides the worldwide marketing.
The belgium-version ZDFE gets was not fitting their needs.
Therefore ZDFE Asked me to Remix and Re Sounddesign the whole Series. For this reason my work is not only considering the german dub version but any version beside the old belgium. Music was changed, Sounddesign was changed the whole mix was changed.

Hi Hans,

Thanks for this feedback. I hope it will be considered by data editors and will help that submission pass.

Nevertheless, let me point out that IMDb states that the original version of "Sylvi's Cats" is in Dutch. So they probably consider that the "Deutsche Fassung" is closer to dubbing

I am working right now on the 5th season of LETZTE Spur, i know all the guys who have worked for the Sound of it from the begin personaly and i know for shure that this Italien guy never was one of us.

So why not find out why someone thought he should be tracked as Rerecording mixer of 53Episodes?

All this corrections and addintions have i submitted several times before. Some of them like a year ago.
So i think there was enough time to work on it.

Sure, so you'd rather try to understand why they were declined and how to work it around!

That is what i tried.
But as i said: the communication appears kind of poor - to be polite.
And i don't know how to fix it.

I mean: strange that it seems to be not possible to convince a IMDB-dataeditor that the propper translation of german MISCHUNG is RERECORDING MIXER and not SOUNDMIXER.

Hans,

Coming here on Getsatisfaction was a good idea, since it is monitored by IMDb staffer who can relay matters to data editors. You just have to wait for their attention to be  grabbed!

Hi, I believe that the majority of data editors are here In The USA. Vince is in France and I assume you are in Europe also. It happens here in the USA to be The Labor Day Weekend. I imagine that a lot of the staff is not going to be in until Tuesday. You may not get that reply till then. Also "Bump" your post on Tuesday. That will help get you to the top where it is more likely to get attention. Monday is Labor Day. Banks and Gov't agency's are closed. I noticed that starting last night the employees were not in abundance on the forum. Just a few were here. Have a good weekend.

Hi Joel,

anything new?

By now the entry of Sylvias cats is removed.
But nothing else so far ...

Are you verifying the Rerecording Mixer Issue?

Regards

Holiday weekend=Backlog=Delay! They finally got to it. Hope you get your changes. You deserve the recognition.
How about this as an example: You are an LAPD Cop. You Get paid, but no uniform for you. Nobody recognizes you until you put them in handcuffs. How are you to get respect without recognition!

Hi Hans!Nice to meet you!
You are absolutely right to claim your work, in last year i worked on 5 season of Letze Spur BERLIN as re-recording mixer for the Italian version edited dubbed and published by RAI, evidently some office in inserted me under that entries.
Sorry for the misunderstanding. 
Have a nice day!

re-recording mixerin North America, also known as a dubbing mixerin Europe, is a post-production audio engineer who mixes recordeddialogue, sound effects and music to create the final version of a soundtrack for a feature film, television program, or television advertisement.

Re-recording mixer - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Re-recording_mixer

Hi Hans,

Thanks for your patience with this.

We've looked into your request now and as a result have made some changes to your page, after reviewing the credits of Die letzte Spur - we've updated any (sound mixer) credits to reflect (re-recording mixer) and have corrected your (sound designer) credits to include the (uncredited) attribute reflecting you weren't listed by name in the credit sequence for this roles - please allow up to 24 hours for these changes to update on all platforms.

Regarding your other additions for Sylvia's Cats (Chaussée d'Amour) and Trapped (Ófærð) - as mentioned by other users in thread, IMDb lists our filmography based on a titles original release. This means, if you worked on a dubbing or re-mixing from the original language, these are not eligible for listing.

Thanks for understanding. 

Joel

He is still in the record.
