unable to verify...

I need an advise how to add correction of actor credits of The Expanse series episodes. There are several episodes with co-starring actors credited, whose are not present in the entire episode. Scenes with them were clearly deleted fron the final cut, but they remained in credits. This actors are not present in any other episodes of the show. I added such edits also as "credit only" and after declination also as "scenes deteled". Examples:
Episode #2.5 "Home"
contribution #200426-170640-110000 - credit only - declined
contribution #200427-165545-531000 - scenes deleted - declined

Episode #2.6 "Paradigm Shift"
centribution #200427-163319-005000 - scenes deleted - declined

How should I prove that they are not in the episode since they simply are not there?

Another question: Is a photograph only of credited actor in the episode valid entry? (meaning there is no real footage of this actor, only an photo shown)
I corrected this entry as "credit only" and it was declined eventhough I added a screenshot as a proof: #200426-133913-624000
Which attribute should be used in this situation? None?

Thanks for info.

If a performer does not appear but their name is shown in the credits, the term (credit only) should be added in the Attributes section.

He tried that and it didn't work. I'm not sure how anyone could verify that someone doesn't appear in an episode. I mean, they could end up in the background and have no lines and still be there but their main scenes get cut.

This is the situation when there is absolute no footage of them at all (so they are not visible in the background).

Why are you ignoring my questions? I want to correct mistakes according to you policies. I find nowhere the information how to credit an actor with only photo visible on-screen. I dont understand why you repeatedly decline my edits even when I create and add screenshots for verification (For example: 200506-200109-985000200507-154537-886000200512-191040-319000). Do you intentionally want to have incorrect information in your database? Im a doctor, working in a hospital and during this crisis I dont have time, nor energy to repeatedly post same corrections due to incompetency of someone, who is paid to do his/her job and is unable to open simple link.

Hi there,

Thanks for your post.

I can see you added order numbers to the credits too, if you can get hold of the end screen credits showing the credits listed and provide those too you should be able to get those approved.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I dont understand which edit is this related to. My declined corrections were with screenshots included wherever it was possible.
