A request for changes that I made on June 3, 2017 was rejected. (See below.) Why? The way it is now doesn't even make sense!

The request to add "Caitanya Dasi" as "Hare Krishna #1 (uncredited)" was repeated over a period of years, but always rejected. Therefore, I had given up on trying to add her. Then I tried to add "Titiksava Karunika Das" as "Hare Krishna chanter #1 (uncredited)" and "Vaiyasaki Das" as "Hare Krishna chanter #2 (uncredited) ." They were both immediately added, probably because they both have onscreen credits elsewhere.

But then, to my surprise, completely out-of-the-blue, without any new request by me, "Caitanya Dasi" was added as "Hare Krishna #1 (uncredited)!"

Now we have a list that no longer makes sense: Since all 3 of them are part of the same chanting party, it doesn't make sense that they be numbered: #1, #2, and #1!

So why not change it the way I requested? I figured, "Why include a number? There are more uncredited names that I might try to add in the future, and since adding uncredited actors/actresses seems like a coin toss, why take a chance on more out-of-sequence numbers?"

Also, I requested that "Harvey 'Mrigendra' Mechanic" be added as "Hare Krishna (uncredited)," (He is part of the exact same chanting party), and he was immediately added! Therefore, this is even more reason (for the sake of consistency) to drop the "chanter," "#1," and "#2" designations!

Please help!

Hi Pratyatosa,

Thanks I've amended the credits as requested as it makes more sense than what is currently live.

Regards,
Will
