Deleting story editors out of "Other Crew"

I've been re-watching Friends and I noticed that the story editor credits are listed under "Other Crew" when they, now, should be listed under "Writers". I've been able to add these credits to the writing credits but deleting them out of the "Other Crew" has been a nightmare. Usually, I just resubmit them until they are gone. However, for the episode, The One Where Underdog Gets Away, I've tried twice to delete them and both times they were declined. The last submission was 190722-154815-194000.

I would like to get confirmation as to what department the story editor credits are supposed to be listed under.

You only have to read the Writer's Guide

  • Staff writers, story editors, story coordinators, story supervisors and story consultants also belong in the writers section.

Thanks. This is one I pay attention to when I watch older shows as usually the story editors are listed in the "other crew" section. Usually, I can correct them without trouble. I'm not sure why they are declining these deletions with "unable to verify". What's to verify?

Hi Adrian -

You are correct, these credits belong under the "Writer" section, and for this particular episode I can see that the credits have been updated to this section with the exception of the incorrect listings under "Other Crew".  I have now removed these credits, if you have further issues with similar episode deletion requests please let us know.
