To IMDb: Have you changed the way you deal with 'Attributes'? It appears that this column is no longer used e.g. (incredited) is now tacked on with : after the person's name. Similarly, with (as ......) is now added with : after the person's name.

Roger: There hasn't been a change that I know of. Can you provide a link to some films' pages where the attributes are showing up in the way you describe?

Almost all the films I have submiited amendments or additions recently, have these 'Attributes'. Here are a few I picked out randomly.

BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE (1948)
Matte Painter (uncredited)
Musical Director Dr. Hubert Clifford
Stunt Double (uncredited)
Camera Operator E. Scaife

SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SECRET CODE (1946)
Technician Glenn E. Anderson

THE FOUR JUST MEN (1939)
Production Manager Harry Hand
Advisor House of Common Scenes (Other Crew) (uncredited)

There are more.

Thanks,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  It appears to be an error in the way corrections with "(as ...)" attributes are being processed and this is not an intentional change.  We have opened a ticket with the appropriate team.
