Please review my submission to be add acting credit to "Stronger" - I have attached the pictures of myself clearly in the scene where Tatiana is in the ER asking about "Jeff" - I was the very next person in that scene.  
I also was running up behind Jake when "Jeff" was being released from the hospital.
Standing in line for bag check at the hospital just after the bombing. and a few other walk thru scenes, however the attached are the most clear and longest portion of the movie I was in.

Hi Tabitha, you were an extra in this film?  Did you have a speaking role, or walk through's only?

I was an extra - non-speaking

In my experience it's difficult to get an acting credit added for walk through's unless the person who added the title does the adding.  In this case it's most likely the production company that added "Stronger" to IMDb (ie Bold Films).  Your agency, whom casting contacted looking for extras (I presume), may be able to help you here also.  They're certainly more understanding when it comes to building your credit list.  They may be able to contact casting, or Bold Films directly, and request that your name be added.

When I tried to add myself as a crew member (camera) to a show that was already listed, I was originally turned down by IMDb even though I already had a lot of credits on other shows.  I contacted the production company I worked for at the time and asked them to include me, which they eventually did.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the input, but I am just following IMBD instructions on how to have these cases reviewed.  I felt that this would open up to more issues and discussions that were not necessary - but if you look in the help section they specifically tell you to post here to have your submission reviewed.

Understood.  Were you turned down by IMDb to add your credit?

I don't see a rejection, just been in limbo for several months, and when I contacted support they asked me to post here.

I know of at least one person who was on the Stronger set that has never had an onscreen credit and he was able to get credit for being in "Joy" by submitting a clear photo of him in the movie.  I also have a 1099 as well, but this is getting a little much since I am very clearly in the scene.

I have also been in School Ties, Graffiti Bridge and House Sitter - but never tried to get those added to profile.  Probably because it is just to much of a hassle to do.

I think you've covered all your bases for sure.

Hello, Tabatha. 

I'd say you should try to add yourself in those titles. 

It generally helps to use character descriptor instead of "extra", something like "Woman Exiting the Elevator", or even more specific.

Hi Tabatha -

I was able to see that your 'uncredited' role on "Stronger" was accepted, however, as Tom mentioned above, since you don't have any credited entries listed, this credit is ineligible to be displayed.  Once you have a credited entry on the site, any uncredited listings that have been accepted will then display.  Let us know if you have any further questions!

That's very unfair since that will never happen.  I am not interested in being anymore than what I do occasionally and be in the background.  I am not interested in chasing that dream at my age.  There should be exceptions to that, not all of us are trying to be box office stars, but would still like to be noticed as well.

Hi Tabatha -

Thanks for your feedback.  Unfortunately, while your 'uncredited' entries will not be eligible to display on your IMDb page, they are displayed on your IMDbPro page as "Additional Credits" here since you have added them to your Resume page.

Regarding your specific comments about our policy not to display uncredited work without a credited entry, I encourage you to post a new thread in this community as an Idea requesting to address this policy, it can then be viewed, commented, and voted on by other users.
