Hi, a production company that I have asked to remove my credit from their information has tried to do so and was rejected twice. Who can I write to to ask why and explain the situation so it can be changed?

Were you credited (your name appears in the credits) in the final version? If yes, IMDb probably won't remove that credit.

Thank you for replying. They also tried to change the production title from "completed" to "released" and were rejected (the film was released 3 years ago...) - How do we change that?

Where was the film released? If you provide that information the status can be changed.

I'm checking it with the production. Thanks. 
(My concern is that it keeps appearing at the top of my credit list).

Oh right I get it.
As soon as a release date is entered that will change.

@Shira Kino - Are talking about the Production Status that's in red on your profile that says completed ? That's normal by default.

When a production status has changed, (for example, when it's been screened), then the production title will queue down your list in the proper year order.

Yes that's what he's talking about, as soon as a release date is entered that will change.

According to IMDb, the production status of 3 Days Gone was completed in 2015, but not yet screened.

Just taking a wild guess here... It's all about specific terminology at IMDb, so the term you're looking for is "Screened" and not "Released" ???

And yes, what Eboy has stated is true.

The bottom line is that it's all about verification on IMDb. 

Not too sure if this was helpful or not.

Hi there,

As Harry mentioned we will not remove a name and credit from a title if they were involved with the project. If they are shown on-screen, but not credited, we will update the credit to have the (uncredited) attribute.

In regards to updating the release date of the title, once you have confirmation of where and when the title was first screened to a public audience you can submit this to the title by pressing the 'edit page' button at the bottom of the title page.
For more information about release dates, please see the following guide: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/release_dates
