It's my understanding that only individual credits with valid titles (Visual/Digital/Special/Special Visual Effects, including Designer, Supervisor, and Director, and Special Photographic Effects) are valid credits. I've had to remove several mass-credited groups of VFX credits for this reason. Captain Marvel is the latest example. There were several VFX groups that had the name of the company (Digital Domain, for an example not necessarily from this movie), then a whole bunch of people listed after that. No indication whatsoever what their job title or what they did for the company...just names. Those are not valid credits. For all I know, the DD office cleaning crew could be among those names. Thoughts?
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

Agreed. If there is no valid crew role they should not be included.

Agreed. Masses of employes without job description do not qualify for listing.

Absolutely agreed: if there's no job description, then they don't qualify for entry in DVD Profiler.

I'm one of the guilty parties for entering those groups of names. I will no longer do that and when I run into the ones I have done, I will fix them, if someone already hasn't, and resubmit for approval.

You'll have to get Ken to add a category for Visual Effects Cleaning Crew. Oh, wait, he has become invisible!!!
