I'm not really sure how to ask my questions other than there is a weird name linked to Jill Ireland that has her in two bikini pics and then another odd pic with two weird names.

Ireland's page is https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0409866/mediaindex?ref_=nm_phs_md_sm

I'm not really sure what to do. I'm pretty sure Polka Dot is bogus, but hopefully someone else can explain it to me.

And this page needs looked as well. Look at its pics and the names assoc with pics.

So what you're really trying to highlight is 
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1384797/
a name page for Polka Dot?
Yes, that looks strange to me.
Polka dot is the name of the pattern of Jill Ireland's bikini in the photos on PD's page.

Since name pages only get photos when someone claims the page with an IMDbPro membership, it might be interesting to see if the photos stay there longer than a month.

The Bobby Holland photo gallery is strange, since the names often do not match what we see. He is a photographer, and he is tagged despite not appearing in some of the photos. I'm not finding clear guidance on photographer/copyright credits here:

If you're trying to highlight other issues, then please provide urls for specific photos. Jill Ireland has 72!

You nailed what I was trying to ask. I found the other 2 pages after going to Ireland's page and she's in the bikini, and her page is fine except for the Polka Dot name on the photo. Sorry I wasn't clearer; I've gotten out of practice asking questions. lol

Mike: The way to fix this problem is to go to the specific page for the photo (such as https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0409866/mediaviewer/rm4166494976) and click "Edit tags". Then submit a request to delete the name "Polka Dot" from the tags for the photo, with the explanation that Jill Ireland is the only person shown in the photo and nobody named Polka Dot is shown.

There may well be a person who uses Polka Dot as a pseudonym, but they aren't shown in that photo and shouldn't be tagged on it.

Good luck!

A question that I should have asked that hopefully someone knows the answer to is whether Polka Dot should be deleted as well. I'll update the 3 pics, or at least try, but I think it's a safe bet it's bogus.
There's also Bobby Holland where several photos need fixed, but I'll be anxious to see if the fixes will go thru because they've got what appears to be official mptvimages standing.

Hey all,

The name page for Polka Dot should definitely be removed as it doesn't look to relate to a person known by that name - the only credit associated with the page states "(clothes: Ms. Davey)".

Therefore, I've removed it from the database now.

Thanks for letting us know.

Joel
