IMDb credit but left off end credits

I worked as an actor on two large films that I signed SAG contracts for.  However, my name was left off of the end credits because of the arcane rule that the producers only have to list the first 50 actors in the end credits.  I am receiving residuals from these movies as well.  Currently, IMDb lists me as uncredited for these projects.  Can the uncredited be switched to credited or perhaps a new category for "uncredited but employed under SAG contract" to accurately reflect that I did work as an actor for these films.

Sorry Actor07,
The IMDb mainly (or actually exclusively) works by the on-screen credits. It doesn’t matter what contracts you’ve signed with the film-makers or with a group like the SAG. If you’re not listed in the on-screen credits then the best you can get on the IMDb is an (uncredited) listing. That’s telling it like it is after all.

I agree Steve, unfortunate that that would be the policy. But, c’est la vie.

Disrespectful. IMDb is arcane. You all heard it here first!
