My name is Steven M Saylor. I can't seem to add Homeland 2011 and Real Husband of Hollywod to my credits. I've worked on both this year as a set designer.

Mr. Saylor, IMDb indicates that you are an established set designer with credits.

How did you submit your credits for Homeland and Real Husbands of Hollywood:
via IMDbPro or the Edit page feature on your main credits page? Could you provide the Reference number associated adding these credits?

Providing this information will help us diagnose your problem.

Mr. Saylor,

I received the same warning, when I attempted to submit your credits for Homeland and Real Husbands of Hollywood. However, I was able to get a green (no warning) if I submitted it by episode. For instance:
"Homeland" (2011) {Pilot (#1.1)}

It looks like you will have to submit your credits for each individual episode.

Someone with more knowledge of the submission process, such as bluesmanSF, Emperor, pbn or a member of the IMDb staff, may be able to provide additional guidance.

Yep DD is right.

The top entry of a TV series can have credits added to it, a a way of associating the regular cast and crew with the show where there might not be actual episodes. However, this is a rather limited use and the cast and credits shown on the main page are usually automatically generated based on credits for individual episodes. As you've found, the system will prevent you from adding yourself to the main entry.

So you need to add yourself to the specific episodes you were credited in.

You can use data verification to supply evidence like a screenshot of the credits.

Not really.

IMDB Pro gives you added extras, like being able to have a resume attached to your profile and upload photographs.
