Any way to get a bad birth-year out of the database?

I just tried to submit something and saw that I have Fred Willard in as 1933. This is apparently accepted according to Invelos as it didn't show up new. This isn't in the accepted thread and isn't even correct, at least for the famous Fred Willard. Is there some way to get rid of it?

The system is perfect so no error can get in it

No seriously it's clearly an error since he is born the september 18 1939 according to
imdb
Wikipedia
Star Pulse
TV.com
TV Guide.com

or 1938 according to
Yahoo Movie
The New York Times

Anyway he is the only actor named Fred Willard, so why a birthdate? Unless someone could confuse him with Winifred Willard

Maybe you could get the error remove by sending a support ticket to Ken...

I didn't find him in the accepted thread but, as far as I know, there is no way for us to remove it.  You can remove it from each profile, but that's about it.

That was a typo. Now fixed. I tried to go through my profiles to see where it came from, but I have several dozen with him and there doesn't seem to be any way to check short of removing the birth year, then submitting every profile to see which one shows the remove as a change. Even removing this would still make it an accepted BY in the DB, I believe.

I think you can open a support ticket to have an invalid BY removed.

LULZ! 

Anyway, it also bothers me sometimes to see unaccepted (and unneeded) BY's in the database. A support ticket is a great idea, next time I'll try that!

I've checked, and it seems that both 1933 and 1938 have slipped through as birth years for Mr. Willard. Since there's only one Fred Willard in the database, a birth year isn't needed, nor allowed, and so I have added this to the "invalid" list in the BY-thread. If Invelos wants to do some cleanup, I would suggest that list as a starting point.
