Please see below some evidence in support of update 141109-133014-582000 for the 2005 film A Taste of Fear: Return of the Cleveland Torso Killer

In this update I have:

1) Corrected the on-screen credit for Rae Sunshine Lee as actress; she appears 'as Rea Lee'.



2) Corrected the on-screen credit for Rae Sunshine Lee as production manager; she appears 'as Rea Lee'.

3) Corrected the producer credit for Kristephan Warren-Stevens; he is an executive producer, not a producer.



4) Deleted the various producer credits for Liz BauerRae Sunshine LeePaul PattersonMarlaine Pitton, and Clara Rosenberg - none of these people have these credits on this film.

5) Deleted the credit for Rae Sunshine Lee as 'graphic design'; there is no such credit on this film.

Please see below some evidence in support of update 141109-141458-196000 for the film Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie.

In this update I have amended the credit for Rae Sunshine Lee to include the note 'as Sunshine' as this reflects the on-screen credit as you see below:

Currently the actress Rae Sunshine Lee is claiming an on-screen credit for the film Honk If You Miss Randy Todd.

As you can see from the credits of this film, this is not correct:



I have checked the film to confirm that Rae Sunshine Lee was in this film and indeed she is as background:



Accordingly I have done update 141109-130150-111000 to correct this to be (uncredited).

Again, I do not understand. You say in the comments of the video(s) that you posted on Vimeo that the "Pounders Cafe "is a commercial and that "The Deep Dark Woods: No Witnesses" is a horror film, or did I misconstrue that? Is it the other way around? Doesn't seem likely.

luvs,
Yes, I saw that too which is why I mentioned Pounders Cafe it was a commercial just as said Sunshine said:



But then here she says the opposite?!?

It is indeed confusing isn't it?!?!

We should be super glad that Sunshine is here to keep us on track and help with all these updates that we need to do since, as Craig said, so many of her IMDb credits are factually incorrect at the moment....

Pleasure episode of Check It Out With Dr. Steven Brule, season 2, episode 2, they used footage of me from season 1 and put it in season 2, which gave me another credit as Susan Brule The editor forgot to put my name in the credits on that particular episode
Sunshine,
That is tremendous - no need to scan the document, but you are totally right - your IMDb credit for the Pleasure episode of Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule should be 'uncredited' since they did not put your name on the screen.

Really appreciate your help with that and in return I've saved you the time to do the update yourself and I have done update 141109-192343-432000 to list this as (uncredited).

Great to have you here to help with this and make sure we get it right!

He isn't jealous, really. Dozens of Contributors spend hours each week " auditing" credits of all types trying to get them to accurately reflect what is on screen. We work really hard to follow the Contributors' Charter and all of the guidelines. We communicate with staff in order to clarify rules, guidelines, etc. It is an unpaid hobby for many. We do it film by film, or show by show, or name by name. We have found many people who have "bulked up their credits" with false information and when that happens, we almost always vet every credit we can find.

I've done this for companies which have claimed on screen credit for work they never did. They then used the IMDb page as evidence of their "good work" in on- line advertising. When I checked, I found none of their claimed credits were accurate...none of them. Was I jealous of them? No! I was simply PO that they usurped the system for their own purposes and created a mess for others to clean up.

The IMDb page about you isn't your page. It is supposed to reflect WHAT APPEARS ON SCREEN. But you know that, I know you do. So, report away. Tell IMDb how horrible Bob or Blues, or I am for trying to make accurate and factual corrections to THEIR database. That is what we think they wish from ALL if their contributors.

Additionally, in some cases, other people asked for assistance regarding Sunshine's page having false information, like claiming she used make-up to appear as a shorter, asian girl, as you can see in:

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/rae-sunshine-lee

It's not all about Sunshine and what she wants. It's about having a site that is reliable for its users.

She never once stated that she played a Vietnamese girl. She made a comment about make up, but the point she was trying to illustrate is that you're using your own judgement to make these alterations. Considering you needed Sunshines help to correct some of your errors already, it is clear that your particular judgement probably isn't what she wanted her page to be subjected to.

There has been an awful lot of focus on her page specifically, and it's not like imdb have personally asked you to make any corrections or go hunting for "proof". So like I say, it's getting personal now.

MetalEdd,
You are right and blues is incorrect - Sunshine never actually said this role was her in makeup to make her appear to be a Vietnamese child.

However, when asked about this credit her response was to point out that a white actress could play an Asian child due to make-up....but no she did not say this is what happened here!

However she also never said 'no, this was not me - I should not have the credit for this work'.....even though we asked several times what the make-up comment meant.....

And there was no 'judgement' apart that credit on mulligan's Stew, apart from the judgement of IMDb staff. Screenshots from the late 1970's were provided that clearly showed these were 2 different people - and my update was to remove this credit from Sunshine's IMDb credits, and credit it to the correct actress.

The IMDb staff reviewed this and used their judgement to make the decision. If there is any issue with judgement then again it should be addressed towards the IMDb staff....not those users with no influence on such things.

Of course there is no judgement, you failed to prove that there were any mistakes. Didn't stop you trying though did it?

The very fact you went digging through her work specifically (and in great amounts) is what she has a problem with. She feels like you were specifically targeting her, which I'd have to agree with.

 you failed to prove that there were any mistakes
MetalEdd,
After so much agreement between us I am afraid I must disagree with you....there were many errors on Sunshine's IMDb page:

- credits listed against her name that were another person's work
- credits which were not what the onscreen credit actually said
- credits listed as being an on-screen name check, which were not
- credits included on the database even though they did not meet eligibility requirements

You are right - in some cases there was no mistake and i provided proof to IMDb that the credit was 100% correct.

However to say there were no mistakes is incorrect....it is starting to be correct now as IMDb staff are confirming the mistakes and correcting them.

If you say there were no mistakes to be corrected, please do point out where I have corrected something that was fully correct - I would not want to have done such a thing and will address it immediately of course.

A big thank you to IMDB Staff.....we see a lot of people complain that IMDb is slow to make changes, but it is obvious from this thread that when proof is provided, IMDb are very fast to act.

So for example so many of the updates and linked proof provided to IMDb staff today have already been reviewed, the original data has been found to be incorrect, and the changes have already been made!

So all of these below this morning had incorrectly stated that Sunshine's name appeared on screen as 'Rae Sunshine Lee', but now IMDb has been corrected.









Thank you IMDb for being so quick to correct these incorrect listings.

Super job!

Perhaps, but I think that when you link to evidence and it is clear at a glance that the update is 100% correct then their job is made easy.

I thanked IMDb but I forgot to thank Sunshine - without her help on this thread some of these corrections would not have been possible...pointing out where she was in a scene where we was only on screen for a split second - but we were able to confirm she was there thanks to her pointing it out.

I think this thread is a model of how people can work together to ensure IMDb listings are correct - and it is encouraging that the staff agree and have responded by being so quick!

I thank God for the great cooperative spirit on this thread!

Amen.

Today's last: Kroll Show - Can I finish? (2013):


In 141109-230624-159000 I've added one '(as...)' attribute and 13 '(uncredited)' attributes (Rae Sunshine Lee's one among them).

I'd like to join in the thanks to the staff for their diligence in processing the updates of this (hard) weekend... Together we'll make this site better!

Rae,
I was in the restaurant sitting across from aq greek male actor. Wow. I wonder if you guys get picked on on your real; jobs as much as you seem to want to pick apart mine. Please do your own research and leave me alone.
But it is your research. Having evidence of you appearing on screen is required to get your credit listed on your page and will make it so it cannot be removed by anyone else later. I don't know why you don't understand that. Not to sound mean but no one cares about you. They're doing it so the pages are accurate. And that's all.

If you're not listed in the on screen credits then your face needs to appear recognizable on the screen. So if you don't want to help, don't. But that might mean the credit is removed completely.

Again if you could take the time to read the guides for submitting credits you'd see this is the case.
