Company Roles Not Appearing?

I've noticed in the last couple of days, if I add a company to the Misc. Companies field, it will state that "___ is not one of the existing jobs we have in this section."  But this applies to roles that already appear in the drop down menu, which makes no sense (such as "post-production facilities").  I take it this is a bug?

Which company are you trying to add? To which title?

I just tried adding one (a made-up company) and although it queried the company name, it didn't object to adding it for "post-production facilities"

"Invader ZIM" (2001) {The Nightmare Begins (#1.1)} .  I added Hollywood Digital [us] and chose "post-production facilities" as the role, and got the error listed above.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8090064/companycredits was another one I updated a couple days ago; it objected to "set fabrication", "opening animation", and "wardrobe", despite having previously used those as roles for many many episodes.

Hello Ian,
> "Invader ZIM" (2001) {The Nightmare Begins (#1.1)} .  I added Hollywood Digital [us] and chose "post-production facilities" as the role, and got the error listed above.
It was accepted for me when I tried to add it, no error shown

> https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8090064/companycredits was another one I updated a couple days ago; it objected to "set fabrication", "opening animation", and "wardrobe"

Which type of Company Credits were you trying to add it as?

When I try to submit a company for "set fabrication" I am offered the choice between:

set design
set artwork
set construction
sets by
hospital sets, medical equipment and medical wardrobe
set security
set fabrication
set decoration rental house
sex toys courtesy of
set cleaning services
or do you want to
Add this as a new job.

For "opening animation" it offers:
animation production
animation
inbetween animation
animation services
finish animation
animation studio
secondary key animation
overseas animation studio
main title animation
key animation
or do you want to
Add this as a new job.

For "wardrobe" it doesn't give any errors or options to select from

I presume that you selected "Other (use box below)" in the first Role selection and then gave the job in all lower case

I just tried on another title, using "animation services" as the role.  Whether I select "Other (use box below)" or just type it without selecting something from the drop down, the result is the same: 

"'animation services' is not one of the existing jobs we have in this section.
Did you mean one of these?"  And then "animation services" is one of the choices, so it clearly IS one of the existing jobs.
