Possible display problem where person has both credited and uncredited entry in same section of IMDB

If you look at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9291842/reference (Dublin Murders, episode 2) you will see in the Stunts section that Alan Walsh has an on-screen credit for "stunts" and an uncredited entry as "additional stunt coordinator". Someone else had already added the latter entry, presumably from inside knowedge, and I gave it an "uncredited" attribute because it does not appear like that in the credits.

This is displayed as "Alan Walsh ... stunts / additional stunt coordinator (uncredited)" which makes it look as if both entries are uncredited. I wonder if when credited and uncredited entries are found for the same person they should be listed on separate lines rather than merged into one line, to avoid the confusion as to whether "uncredited" applies to one or both of the job titles.

Here's a screenshot of the credits https://i.postimg.cc/63XD78Q9/vlcsnap-2019-10-16-11h10m34s96.png

This is not a problem, but should be listed as an Idea Post.

OK. Good point. Can a moderator move it to the Idea section. I can't see a way to do it myself.

In the general case, I agree the display issue may be a problem.

In this specific case, however, it can easily be solved by deleting the uncredited listing, since it's not eligible anyway.  See point 6 of this guide:
Unless radically different, credited work on a movie supersedes similar uncredited work on the same movie. For example, if you were a stunt driver and a stunt rigger on a production and received on-screen credit (and are listed on our site) as "stunt performer", your existing credit already covers your work on the movie...

Ah, right. I wasn't aware of that rule. I'll remember it, and I'll delete the uncredited listings because they fall right into the category mentioned.
