Idea for better sorting of Other Staff listing -

When adding othe staff to a title you are faced with a long list of job descriptions
However I have nopticed that a large number of these come with multiple variations based on capitalisation.
If I use production assistant as an example, you have production assistant (all lowercase the IMDb standard) Production Assistant & Production assistant which are three entries for the same job all with alternate capital letters are we able to correct the duplicate listings to make adding staff easier?

Hello Simon,  I presume that you mean in TV series. Films don't usually have different production assistants for different dates (do they?). If they do, then you can include the date range as an attribute. 
For TV shows, if you just add them to the episode(s) then that should show the dates when they were working in that role.

I think Simon meant data rather than date. The question is about capitalization of job titles, not dates.

Hi, Simon Blakey. There aren't supposed to be any variations of the letter case of these phrases.
