Mike B. Anderson (beating a dead horse)

So last week, Will stated about Mike B. Anderson's credits: "We have purposefully chosen to keep these credits in the assistant director section based on the responsibilities of the role as it relates to the title in question, given our knowledge of the situation. Although this isn't ideal for consistency, it is the correct way to list the credits in relation to the responsibilities of the position for this show."

I was fully prepared to enter Mike's credit in the assistant director section when much to my dismay, he's back in the directors section (minus last week's show which IMDb declined when I tried to add it to the director's section).

What is going on? I mean, I feel like they belong here because IMDb lists people per their onscreen position regardless of actual role. But, make up your mind. They 275 credits shouldn't bounce between positions on a weekly basis.

Now he is again "Assistant director: TV (1 credit)".
Maybe it's a reason to invent the new virtual credit: Ping-Pong Director
:)

He's always had a couple of assistant director credits. The main 275 credits are listed under director.

Hi Adrian,

We took on board your comments to provide consistency across IMDb, as this wasn't fair on contributors. Did you see my more recent comment on that thread? https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/mike-b-anderson-yet-again

"Thanks Adrian. We appreciate that this isn't fair on users who do not have the access to this additional information. The responsibilities of this job role can vary wildly, which makes it difficult to delineate and enforce a policy to house these credits on a case by case basis, whilst expecting users to consistently follow it. In light of this we have reverted the credits to the director section to be consistent with the way we store the rest of these credits on IMDb."

I can see that his credit is now listed in the director section of that episode.

Regards,
Will

Sorry Will. I saw your response but I must have skimmed it too quickly and missed the conclusion. I could say way to bury the lede!

It looks like the directors credits for Woo-Hoo Dunnit? are now corrected but Anderson is still missing a credit for D'oh Canada. I'll try adding it again. Is there something in the system that is auto-rejecting these credits?

Hi Adrian,

No attempt to bury the lede here. The item was still pending, but I've pushed it through now.

Will

Thanks for the reference. No there is nothing in our system auto-rejecting it, this was a mistake on our part.

Regards,
Will
