When I try to edit my mini-bio, why does the site say "no info"? ? There is a long entry, so why can't I edit?

I want to edit my mini-biography but the page says "no info", so I can only ADD a new mini-bio, instead of EDITING the current one. Because of the glitch, I accidentally posted the same mini-bio twice. If IMDB doesn't allow anyone to delete biographies, then how do I omit one of the duplicates? And why won't the site let me edit the existing text (i.e. why does it say "no info" when there are 2 biographies)?

If it's newly added, you probably just need to wait a day or two. The page updates faster now, but the edit forms are on the older, slower system and take a day or two to update with the added info.

It has been 1 business day, so I'll check again later. Thank you! Because of the glitch, I accidentally added an identical mini-bio, instead of editing the original (because the site said "no info" and wouldn't allow it). There are now two identical mini-bios on the profile, and I only want to keep one. How do I delete a duplicate mini-bio?

Go to the name page, click "edit page" choose, next to "biography" to "correct/delete" and click "continue" button. Next to the one you're deleting, change "keep" to "delete" then click "check these updates." Enter the explanation that you created a duplicate, and this one, minus corrections, is not needed, then click "re-check these updates" and it should allow you to submit it.

Neither entry is listed on the edit page -- that's the problem. I can't edit either entry because the editing page doesn't recognize they exist. The only option is to add a new mini-bio. 

It simply says "No existing data"

I recall your post above, that perhaps the system is simply slow. I will try your method of deleting the duplicate mini-bio in a few days, assuming the editing site finally recognizes the presence of two mini-bios.

Yes...you need to wait for the data to appear before you can edit it.

Good luck! Post back if you have problems with it!
