Hi Everyone!

I tried to correct Jonathan Kawchuck's name and the update went through but all his old credit appear with the as "Jonathon Kawchuck" tag.

The name is obviously misspelled, and as you can see on the posters the correct spell and the way it was credited on the films, is by "Jonathan".
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5129258/

Can we correct all the existing credits to reflect the correct spelling?

UPDATE ID: 190404-003030-022000

Thanks!

Hi, David.

You are right, in the base a name should be spelled "the way it was credited on the films". For your corrections to be processed, you need to provide the stills (backdrops / screenshots) of the filmed titles under question.
It is in short how all this works.

Thanks MAthePA, since this is a pretty clear situation and it applied to ALL the existing credits let's see what IMDB says...
The existing posters are even credited to the right spelling.

There was a small additional issue with the correction... it was sent as Kawchuck instead of Kawchuk.
The original last name was fine. KAWCHUK is the correct spelling.

I sent an additional update to roll this change back: 190405-145846-945000
