On your bio for Robert Culp you state that he plays a CIA agent. In the show The Greatest American Hero he played an FBI agent. Thanks.

A contributor tip from MayorDefacto:

The bio in question, imdb.com/name/nm0191685/bio is signed, and includes an e-mail address. The author should be contacted, informed of the error, and be allowed to edit his own work. Only if there is no response from the author should someone take it upon himself to edit another contributor's signed biography or summary. It's just common courtesy.

If the author doesn't include contact info, well that's a different story.


So there you go - contact the bio writer and suggest they make the change.

MayorDefacto,

Thank you for your sage advice. I certainly would appreciate being contacted if there were any mistakes in my biographies or summaries, not that I have more than a few.

I'm afraid I've been rude in the past and steamed straight in fixing typos and grammar before.

Which, frankly, you have every right to do.

Unlike Wikipedia where there is a specific policy that anyone can and should edit an article to correct typos and grammar, there is no such clear policy on IMDb. A user on IMDb does have the right and responsibility to correct problems. It is simply a courtesy to inform the original author when their contact information is associated with a biography.
