Why sometimes in name page the person details are not displayed?

e.g.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2132387/
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1328051/

Thanks,
Yossi

Do you mean that some people doesn't have a proper biography? Or something else?

I mean that the summary details at the top of the page appears blank.
Please look at the example I sent.

Hi Yossi T -

I looked at the example pages you provided and can confirm that the reason why the section is blank, is because we have no Bio details listed on the site for those individuals.  We can only display information in that section if there is Bio information available.

Hi,
Thanks for your response.
I still don't understand the difference between the previous examples and this case: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0123398/, which has simply a summary of the this person works. Why this kind of summary does not appear for http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2106711/ ?

If a person doesn't have any other bio, some get an auto-generated bio (e.g., Yigal Bursztyn).

I think the reason why others don't have this is that they don't have any acting credits.

Thanks Peter,
The auto-generated bio It is not consistent. In some cases, even though the person has acting credits its still blank.
e.g. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0684197/ has credits as a editor and director, but they don't appear.

P.S.
Yesterday there were no summary for  Yigal Bursztyn, but today its appear.
