If the on-screen credit reads STUNT THUGS, and then lists the names of those who did that role, would the credit go on IMDb under Stunts and read as "stunts," "Stunt Thug," or "Stunt Thugs," or would it go in the Actor section as "Stunt Thug" or "Stunt Thugs" to be considered added correctly? Or does it not matter and can it be any of the above? I always prefer just "stunts" because that safely covers everything, but I know that IMDb has its own protocol.

No one's jumping in on this good question...I think I agree with you on the stunts, but can't see any reason not to go the cast way too...especially on your page where you have examples going either way where your work was not completely one or other, but both...and they don't always get credited on the screen as both. Maybe where they appear in the list can prompt it one way or other. Is it in with the cast, or later with crew (not that that necessarily would clear it up completely...but maybe be a guide)?

If I wasn't clear originally, if I could choose, I would choose for it to be listed on IMDB as simply "stunts," however I know from experience my preference usually doesn't matter.

LOL..yeah, I've seen that in action (inaction?)...but I think it'd be perfectly fine that way and makes good sense.

Hi Steve -

Since this is a Stunt Performer credit, your role on this film should be listed under the "Stunts" section.

Thank you, Michelle. Would it be ok if added to the database as "stunts" or should it be added as "stunt thug" to the database? Personally I would prefer just "stunts" but I'd like to know your opinion.
