What? Why? Online is the correct spelling instead of on-line, but I would think that you would want the actual correct on-screen credit.

Hi Adrian -

Thanks for calling out this auto standardization correction in the system, we have now removed the rule so that the form should allow both "online" and "on-line" in the occupation field.  In the meantime, can you test out adding the "online" occupation among a few different titles to confirm that the IMDb rule has been removed?

I don't enter a lot of crew members as it is just too time consuming. I don't know why I'm doing it on this series. I did test this with he one guy that had the autocorrect going on and it did take "online editor" this time without changing it.
