IMDB updating info on perfomers...

Is there a way to find out who updates a performer's page? Does it work in Wikipedia where anyone can add stuff?

Anyone can add stuff, but unlike Wikipedia, it is reviewed before implementation, and they may ask you for citations.

Use the "Edit Page" button at the bottom of the performer's page.

I see, thanks.

I guess there's no way to self manage a page and lock out others from updating your page right? I have a friend who has a page that keeps getting updated with personal info and she's not happy about it. She's retired from Show biz.

Re: IMDB updating info on perfomers...

IMDB is notorious about not removing posted information. They basically won't do it unless you can prove it is inaccurate.

Here is what the CEO said 9 months ago:
Q: Do you often get calls from celebrities asking that you remove, say, an unflattering news story that's linked on their page or an embarrassing old credit?

A: The credits are the bread and butter. We want to list every credit for everybody, and there's nothing they can do. We never remove factually correct information. So if somebody made this film, if this piece of information about somebody is the truth, we will always publish that. If somebody wants something removed, we're not gonna remove it just because they want it removed.

Yeah I figured as much and I get why they would take that stance. I guess My friend is screwed.
