Get Out cast marked complete but didn't take my deletions

Before anyone answers to check the processing page, I'm aware the oldest item still unprocessed is from November 18 but I doubt this item is one of the 6 unprocessed items left.

I watched Get Out 4 nights ago and I noticed the bottom of the cast was wrong and included stunt performers. I took a picture and changed the cast and marked it as complete. The data editors marked the cast complete but did not delete the two stunt performers (who are also credited in the stunt crew area).

Hi Adrian -

To clarify, because the two credits (for 'Police Officer #1 Stunt' and ''Police Officer #2 Stunt') were credited within the cast section, we determined to list these credits under both the applicable cast and crew sections.  However, the following stunt credits (after "Chriss 11 year old") will all be listed under the Stunt section only. 

Therefore, the two credits you referenced are correctly listed under the Cast section and shouldn't be removed.  Cheers!

Isn't that a wildly inconsistent? To me, it seems like it is. Stunt actors are generally listed in this area but are never credited as actors that I've seen. This is particularly true in TV series where stunt actors and body doubles will be mixed in with the cast but they aren't considered part of the cast.

Heck, to me this is even inconsistent in this case as stunt/cast are all listed in a continuous section. If those two police officers are considered cast, then all in that continuous section of credits should be considered casts.

Hi Adrian -

Thanks for your feedback, these instances are rare, however, when they occur we try to display the credit in a way that best reflects the on-screen credits.  Since the Police Officer stunt credits were listed within the cast on-screen verses after the cast, this is why we captured these entries in both the cast and crew sections for the title. 

The remaining stunt credits following the cast  were minor crew roles with no definitive cast roles listed, therefore,  these credits are more appropriately listed under the stunt section only.

First, if this is the policy, it should be documented and the "actors" should be removed from the stunt section. (I didn't put them there but I did add their roles as this seems the most logical section that they should be listed in.) I can think of no other role that would be dually credited in IMDb for a single credit listed on screen.

Second, many of the shows on SyFy show stunt cast listed like this, like "Space Solider Stunt" but I have never seen those credits listed as "cast". (And you can look at my update history to know I've updated a lot of credits.)

Third, I think this would change if "Zailand Adams" was listed above the two stunt policemen. This makes it almost impossible for anyone to know what is acceptable as "stunt cast" and what isn't.

Fourth, the policemen, though given character descriptions are no less of a minor role, probably with less than a minute of combined screen time.
