Enable users to add images to dead people's IMDb profiles without IMDbPro

It seems to me to be detrimental to continue insisting that you need IMDbPro to add images to dead people's profiles because there are loads of deceased actors, directors, etc. who have no living relatives or representatives and consequently they'll remain without images until you change your rules. I think it would be beneficial for IMDb to allow us to add images to their profiles without IMDbPro because it will make IMDb an even more accurate and comprehensive database.

I agree, but I should note that, for the time being, you can probably make suggestions right here (on GS) for dead people or distant historical figures whose profiles have been claimed by IMDb registered user accounts controlled by the IMDb staff. The problem is that we do not know which name pages exist in such a condition. Also, it might be difficult to talk the IMDb staff into creating new IMDbPro accounts to attach to the unclaimed pages of historical figures. I really do not know how or in what way the company internalizes the "cost".
