IMDb's 'cache" in our business and the World, is that we feel we can trust what is posted at IMDb as accurate. I highly recommend the following suggestions in regard to the "Known For" section:
1. Give us the ability to turn it on or off from within our profile.
2. Give us the ability to list more projects as "known for"... up to 10
3. Give a choice of different algorithms, as one might work better for one person than another.
4. Or else... Delete it until you find a better way...
Everything on the "works" section is verifiable & therefore changeable, and everything in the "profile" section is programable by the person. But your "Known for" section is coming across as some computer's weird erratic opinion..., which in some cases might be considered hurtful to the person's identity or career..., and it undermines the legitimacy of the rest of the information on the page. In some cases it is almost comical. Further, your FAQ's which say... "Please don't ask us to edit "Known For" titles for you -- we can't" - is highly offensive when you are dealing with people's careers, and livelihoods.
Thanks for giving us this place to speak out...
