I edited a tv show for Animal Planet in May 2013, along with another editor. I edited 50% of the show, she edited the other 50% of the show. The other editor is credited as editor on IMDB but I am unable to get IMDB to credit me which is incredibly frustrating and having a significant detrimental impact on my career as new clients are unable to verify my involvement in the job.
Can anyone please advise me on how to tackle this? Many thanks.

As I assume you were credited on the series, you should be able to get listed for this.

What you need to do is use data verification to send in screenshots of the credits with your name on them, as evidence to support your submission:

Ok it is now August 14th. I finished editing this tv show in May this year!

I have been trying to get IMDB to correct the information they have attached to this tv show and apart from your help, Emperor, not one person has contacted me in FOUR months about this error.

I have sent a screen grab of the credits (http://www.flickr.com/photos/leicavir...) to the support team and still nothing.

Can you contact these people directly and prompt some sort of activity? my email is timcillard@gmail.com

I edited 'Mermaids - The New Evidence' with Editor Lara Andre as it shows clearly in the credits which are linked above.

I find it hard to understand why an admin change that would take approximately 60 seconds to do has not yet been addressed in four months.

I hope you will understand the sense of frustration I have.

Many thanks in advance,
Tim

Sorry, I have no more powers than the average user, hopefully staff will see this and chip in. To help them can you give the reference number for your submission?

"The reference number for this submission is 130606-182036-903000 and it has been added to your update history."

thanks again. I figured you were part of IMDB team, my mistake.

Nope sorry. We champs are just ordinary users pitching in to help out others, this can help free up staff to deal with tricky problems (although it doesn't seem to have worked in this case).
