Sorry for bringing this up, but I don't think it's necessary to open a new thread.

I was checking the credits for The Brothers Grimsby. In the endcredits most of the Art crew is listed under UK Unit and South Africa Unit. Normally I would say I let them out according the rules, but if I do there are no art directors, make-up artists, special effects supervisors and production sound mixers in the crew section.

In other profiles both the Art crew from the UK and South Africa Units are listed without noticing the UK and South Africa Unit. So I was wondering if I should list the art directors, make up artists etc. or should I leave them out?

I do them all the time and keep them local, because most of the others do not like data.

Frankly I'm getting tired of the ping ponging.

One contribution adds location crew, the next one removes them, then yet another one adds them back in.
And of course all of these show up as being a change when checking for updates.

Just wish we had a final word one way or the other.

I agree.

Personally I wouldn't add them because of the rules, but that would mean that there are no art directors, makeup artists, production sound mixers etc in the crew section of the title. So I was wondering how other users handle this when there's no main part in the credits.

In most of the profiles for this title (probably copied) the art crew from both units are included without noticing they're taken from the UK and South Africa unit.

Same problem with GoT - Wolf Unit and Dragon Unit - only place you will find a Production Sound Mixer - some people slip them in a contribution and I remove them.

It doesn't matter how idiotic the rule is, it's still the rule - and Gerri's statement regarding New York Crew is pretty clear.

Just my 2¢ here, but could it be possible that the credits can "mix things up" and write "unit" when they actually mean "(unit) crew"?
For example for GoT.
Or is this to be strictly militant level about the word "unit"?

OK, I'm sure this is stupid, but, what is GoT?

I don't blame you, I had to think myself too to figure it out.
"Game of Thrones".

I'm going to be even more embarrassing and admit that this is a TV series I didn't watch...! 
I have the first season and watched the first episode, but that's it. I think, concerning TV series you have to spend so much time getting in the right mood for watching and "entering their world".

Even worse example, I'm a real "Peakie", and have several editions of Twin Peaks, but I haven't watched that series from start to end for certainly more than 15 years ago.

Anyway, back on topic.

Thank you for the answer, I labored over it for 2 days trying to figure it out. You're not alone, I haven't watched it either despite many friends and family members telling me what I was missing. Sorry for the stray.

GoT: The books are far better than the TV show - at least the first four (or eight if the newer release is counted) books. The best part of the series are the opening credits

Alright, let's make a deal. I promise to watch at least one more episode of GoT if someone can explain what "Wolf Unit and Dragon Unit" refers to and what the respective crews do?

Or do they just dress up and goof around?

I'd assume them to be special effects units for the rather huge animal/fantasy scenes and therefore invalid.

Ah. OK.
I would love more than an assumption though.
I guess I could picture it better if I watched the credits. But still strange that they chose to list main sound crew within that.

I knew what GoT meant (inset smug emoticon here please), but I've never watched a single episode although I've bought the series box set on Blu-ray. Not sure when I'll watch it. I only watched Babylon 5 last year for the first time but I bought that 15 years ago; the plastic wrapping around the boxes was very dusty!

I don't enter location crew into the main profile for anything, but don't remove it if someone's already put it there. Locally I keep both location and unit crew in the Other section.
Do you ever find yourself striving for perfection with an almost worthless attempt at it?  Guttermouth "Lemon Water".  Also, I include in my Profiler database VHS tapes, audio DVDs, audio books (cassettes and CDs) and video games (disk based and digital), as well as films and TV I've bought digitally.  So I'm an anarchist, deal with it.  Just be thankful I don't include most of my records and CDs etc in it too; don't think I haven't been tempted...

The bottom line is that LOCATION crew is OK and a good thing to enter.
It is also not allowed to remove correct location crew.

UNIT crew is not allowed to enter and therefor, if you find it, you should remove it.
