The Movie Database Support

I have a suggestion/question in regards to the editing procedure of crew members:

A few weeks/months ago Travis implemented a new data field called "Known For" on all person pages on the website. He also integrated this into the TMDb search, so that you can see both the main job label and a few movie/tv titles this person was/is involved in. I like this a lot better than before, it's easier to spot the correct person. So, my question/suggestion:

Is it possible/preferable to do the same on the drop down menu within the editing procedure? :spy_tone4:

I would like this a lot - any opinions?


To explain this on a simple, random example. When you search for "Shannon Kenny" on TMDb, you get 2 results at the moment:

https://www.themoviedb.org/search?query=shannon+kenny

One of them is an actress, the other one is a script writer. In the list of the search results, you can see the difference without knowing any specific title: one of them says "Acting", the other one says "Directing". I made a screen shot:

However, when you want to edit a movie/tv show and you want to add "Shannon Kenny" to this specific title, you see only a few other tv/movie titles and you have to guess and choose 1 of them. I also made a screen shot of this:

And that's what I'm asking/suggesting: Wouldn't it be a lot easier to have the job title from "Known For" also right at this place in the editing process?

Hi Janar,

Yes, the plan is to get them added in the edit pages. The last month has been bonkers but I should fall back into my regular routine again and I'll finish up some of this stuff. :thumbsup_tone2:

I understand. Just checking: Did you receive my email 10 days ago? :pencil:

I did! I just replied. Sorry for the delay.
