I have submitted several times the correction for "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back"'s credits, but it never appears. The mistake is that both Scobey, Robin and Boa, Bruce have credit number 24, and the correct order is:
Scobey, Robin 24
Boa, Bruce 25
Malcolm, Christopher 26
Lawson, Denis 27
Oldfield, Richard 28
Morton, John (I) 29
Liston, Ian 30
Ratzenberger, John 31
McKenzie, Jack 32
Harte, Jerry 33
Chancer, Norman (I) 34
Duff, Norwich 35
Hassett, Ray 36
Kahn, Brigitte 37
Tucker, Burnell 38

Can you help me fix this?

It is marked as

Cast (in credits order) verified as complete


So, if you're right it would have to be unlocked to allow change. How sure are you of the order and what do you have as proof (for example a screen capture of the on screen credits)?

You'd use miscellaneous correction and note that it's marked "complete," as described here

It IS complete; but there is this order problem.

I am positive.

I just submitted the proof with the form you provided me with.

They can't. Use your common sense and read what I wrote (twice). I can see there is an error. I've told you, twice how to fix it. You need to report it correctly, as I've described. Once a film is marked as complete, new submissions will not be accepted. So, you need to send a "miscellaneous" correction and explain it's "marked as complete" according to the instructions I've linked you to several times above. All submissions should also have proof submitted. So, to assure it's accepted, you should provide proof of which actor is 24th in the credits and which is 25th...like a screen cap of the credits would show.

I'd do it for you but I do not have a copy of the film's on screen credits.

I can plainly see there are two 24's and have sense to know it's not possible. That is why I am telling you, over and over, what needs to be done to fix it.

Normally, you could just submit a request to correct it. That will not work since it is marked as verified to be complete. So, you need to first let them know that a complete credit list needs to be unlocked, corrected, then marked complete again.

The process has nothing to do with my personal level of common sense. But, my common sense tells me that if you've submitted it several times and it still has not been accepted, you're doing something wrong. I would think it shouldn't kill you to try something new, especially since I've linked you to instructions that refer specifically the type of situation you're describing.

There's not a lot of sense in repeating the steps you're now aware are failing and ignoring a prescribed way of dealing with a situation.

Good luck.

And I told you "I just submitted the proof with the form you provided me with" just after you told me how to. I don't know why you keep repeating to me all that crap.

It's not "crap." It's the answer to your question, to which you make snide comments like, "use common sense."

Adding the proof needs to go with the "miscellaneous correction" submission that needs to be made. You haven't commented on that other to repeat, over and over, there is a correction to be made, which is clear to see. If you keep refusing to say, "oh, I see...thank you" instead of repeating that there is an error and saying I should use common sense, it seems as if you're ignoring the instructions on how to submit it properly.

Then use common sense and say, "I just submitted a "miscellaneous correction" as described, thanks!" instead of

It IS complete; but there is this order problem.

I am positive.


or

But use your common sense, how could two actors share the same credit?


which make it look as if you didn't read or understand what was said prior to your reply. Then you won't have the instructions repeated to you.

You're welcome.

Thanks for pointing that out. Not sure exactly how this happened, but you are right -- both Boa and Scobey are currently listed in 24th position, which caused the rest of the cast to be off by one slot.

This is being fixed, so the correct order should appear within a few days.

Thanks again.

The original problem has been fixed, but a new one has been created:

both Malcolm, Christopher and Lawson, Denis share the 27th credit, where Malcolm should be the 26th credit.

There are instructions above for submitting requests for corrections of this type, no?

I did, only bluesmanSF said the cast is blocked and that no updates for that page submitted by me will ever appear.

That is only part of what I said. To rectify that, you need to submit it as a "miscellaneous correction, telling staff it's currently marked complete." I posted that several times with a link to the page explaining it. You even told me not to keep repeating myself. It's all still there. Read your first reply.
