Can't Correct Cast Character Name

When a cast listing has two aliases for a performer's name and one alias gets "also as...", there seems to be no way to change the character info. For example: the film Farewell Scarlet (1975) currently has one cast line that reads: Chuck Vincent = Old lady/Phone booth victim #2 (also as Mark Ubell) (as Martha Ubell)...order=24. The character needs to be changed so that the words "Lady", "Booth" and "Victim are capitalized. Nothing is accepted by IMDb here even when removing the word "also" and sending things in. Something about that "also as..." prevents IMDb from making what is a rather no-brainer correction. I've also sent in the correction with a note in the Misc. Comments section. Still nothing. I've had this problem with other films too. Any ideas?

Hi don -

I just looked at the title you gave as an example here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0182098/f... , and i saw that the character names are currently capitalized:

"Old Lady/Phone Booth Victim #2 (as Martha Ubell) (as Mark Ubell)"

Is there still a problem with this credit?

Michelle, I'm amazed. My correction finally went through for this!

However,

I'm still having the same problem with the film SOS: Screw on the Screen (1975) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185654/c...) where I want to change the Al Goldstein cast credit to read:

Al Goldstein = Super Sausage/Screw Tonight Co-Host (as Al Goldstein) (as Al Goldfarbstein)... cast order = 2

The only change is the removal of the "#2" in the role.

And the same problem exists with the film Erotic Dr. Jekyll (1976) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0136171/c...) where I want to change the Nancy Dare cast credit to read:

Nancy Dare = Third Contestant/Redheaded Virgin/Brunette Virgin (as Linda Smarts) (as Susan Sparkles)... cast order = 2

Here Nancy plays 3 distinctly different roles so I am adding the 2 remaining character descriptions but trying to keep them as short as possible.

It's just a guess, but it seems that the presence of the word "also" in the cast attributes for each performer above is what is messing things up. Fortunately, these are my remaining cases involving this glitch. Maybe you can grease the IMDb wheel for me. Thanks in advance! - Don
