Hi,

I'm trying to submit some corrections. I'm a Steadicam Operator in the EU, but there are a load of electrical department credits belonging to someone in New Zealand on my page.

I've submitted the deletions three times, but they have been declined each time. How should I proceed?

#190910-151819-857000

All the best,

Chris Fawcett

Neither, as far as I can gather. Seems a pity to kill those credits, but I can't figure out who they belong to.

Have you also checked for variations on the name? Could be someone listed as Christian, Christine, Christopher, for example?

But if you really can't find them, then the best option may be to create a new name page for this other Chris Fawcett and move the credits there.  If it turns out that they already have a page, they can be merged later when it's identified.

Thanks, just tried that. No luck.

I'll consider your last suggestion, though I wish IMDB would just fix it!

Hi Chris -

Instead of submitting deletion requests, please submit credit corrections requesting to move the incorrect credits to a new page listing for "Chris Fawcett".  Once you have re-submitted the credit corrections, our editors will then take another look.

Hi Michelle,

I'm disinclined to do this. It seems dishonest to create a page for some person or persons about whom I know nothing. I'm disappointed that my efforts to correct rather obvious mistakes on your website have come to this.

All the best,

Chris

Creating pages is what this site is about, it is not just okay to do that for accurate info it is encouraged. The dishonest thing to do would be to erase another persons work from IMDB when he obviously deserves a page of his own and is proven to exist.

IMDb can't just "delete" them, since they would be deleted from IMDb altogether (not just from your name page).

Here's one example of CF working as a gaffer on a New Zealand based production. IF you're not this person and you didn't work on this film, it's pretty safe to say that you can create another IMDb name page for this person (I believe "III"):
