Rhea: Can you please provide some of the titles you have worked on so we can try to figure out the problem? (And I'm assuming that you are listed in IMDb under the name "Rhea Calaveras", but if not by all means please tell us what name you are listed under.)

Rhea: When you do a search for your name and you don't find it, on the right side of the screen, you should see a box labeled "Category Search", and below that a box labeled "Additional Search Options". At the bottom of the "Additional Search Options" box there should be a choice labeled "Enable adult titles/names in your searches" (circled in the screen capture below). 



Because some of your films are categorized in the Adult genre, your name is blocked from appearing in searches unless an IMDb user chooses to enable such searches. (This is so even though you have been working in mainstream films for several years.)

I don't think there is anything that can be done to change this. A few months ago, a man found that his name was treated as an "Adult" name even though his only involvement in the genre was working as an editor on two "Girls Gone Wild" videos. https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/lost-and-found-why-cant-people-type-my-name-in-and-find-me-o... An IMDb staffer looked into this and advised us that "the search is working as designed" for him.

Hi,
you have been wonderful. Its a shame that that garbage is even on IMDb..this is why theres IAFD :)But, on that note, I made several requests over the past year to place lots of those titles as archive ( I quit the business in late 1999) yet, nobody followed up on that request. If you could help, that would be wonderful
Thanks again for helping me on this holiday weekend. Im hoping that one day they just take those titles off IMDB since this is for acting.
Cheers
Jas

IMDb doesn't archive old films. Notice this one, Roundhay Garden Scene, from 1888 is still listed.

Also IMDb isn't "for acting." It's a searchable database of film and TV that seeks to be complete. So they won't likely remove a whole genre.
