Problems on Grey's Anatomy Page

Grey's Anatomy page is devoid of Cast Info. For the past few weeks, while watching Grey's Anatomy, I'll recognize a guest actor and try to find out more by going to IMDb's Grey's Anatomy page. Each week, the amount of cast information has dwindled to the point that tonight's episode (shown 5-7-15)listed only four extras who had minimal to zero speaking parts. None of the rest of the cast was listed at all. The actors, like Ellen Pompeo, who have been with the show for all 11 seasons deserve recognition. I don't need a response from you, I simply would like to have you look into the problem, and then please, try to fix it. Thank you.

IMDb is, for the most part, a crowd-sourced database. Unless someone from the production adds the episode information prior to it being televised, IMDb's information will be sketchy at best . Dedicated volunteer contributors will add the information as soon as the information becomes available to them ( ie once they have the credits and screenshots available as evidence). IMDb then vets the submitted information and updates the database.

I have had similar problems in the past, especially watching NCIS, but the database is usually updated with salient information very soon following the original air date. I just go back and check then.

@LuvsToResearch, thank you so much for your kind and informative response to my concerns . Your explanation of how IMDb functions was very helpful. Even IMDb has not explained how their site works with such clarity. I hope you are a writer, because you do such a beautiful job with it. Thanks again.
