Hi, I am trying to remove very specific credits from my account that are 100% inaccurate and projects I was never a part of. IMDb link: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4786382/?ref_=nv_sr_1 All credits for GETTING IN, SEQUESTER and CRUSH THE HOLIDAY CASTLE ADVENTURES to be removed as they are false credits and projects that I, Ethan Levy, never worked on. I've been an IMDb customer for several years and would like to continue my membership as long as IMDb maintains accuracy and proper credit listings. Thank you.

”SEQUESTER” and ”CRUSH THE HOLIDAY CASTLE ADVENTURES” seems to be video games, so I have to assume that these credits belong to some ”other” person with the same (or very similar) name. IMDb won’t outright delete these credits - they need to be moved under a correct person.


Probably him (the CV on the second link lists these two games):

https://mobile.twitter.com/famousaspe...

https://famousaspect.com/cv/

https://www.mobygames.com/developer/s...


You can change these by going to the title page (not the name page) of these video games, click ”Edit”, choose Director and Producer, choose ”Correct” to both, and then change the name ”Levy, Ethan” to ”Levy, Ethan (II)”. The system says something about ”Levy, Ethan (II) is a new name, are you sure” so click yes and continue. Eventually you can submit them.

NOTE: Make sure you click the box where you explain why you’re correcting these credits and add a link to this thread also.

Hi, I'm Ethan Levy a video game producer (and a different Ethan Levy than the original poster). Sequester and Crush the Castle are two games I worked on. The three links posted by Eboy are all me.

So now the only one left is Getting In... A third Ethan Levy perhaps?

It seems as though there are only 2 Ethan Levys on IMDb in total. However, the second Ethan Levy is listed as Ethan Levy (VI), instead of Ethan Levy (II). If a rep can make the adjustment of the Roman numeral to (II), that would be great!

Ed,
That is exactly what I am attempting to have adjusted. Ethan Levy (VI) should indeed be changed to Ethan Levy (II), for there are only 2 in total. The (VI) Roman numeral is misleading.

Also......... Who Are you?
Are you also IMDbAdjuster too?
You seem to be focused only on the posts of Mr Levy.
So are you one in the same?

I had deactivated my IMDbadjuster account with the thought that it would remove old threads, but it is clear that isn't possible. Sadly, in order to address these issues, I had to make a whole new account. Additionally, I have addressed this issue with IMDb through the contributor e-mail, but they don't seem to think it needs to be changed, which doesn't make much sense given the fact that Roman numerals II-V are non existent. I simply am looking for this adjustment, as well as the removal of all previous threads. I had signed up for this forum a few years back, and did not realize that threads were permanent, otherwise, I would have addressed personal technical issues privately. Hoping a higher up can solve these issues for me. It would be greatly appreciated.

This is a reprint again. There is no sensitive info in any thread.
You did not close IMDbAdjuster account until I broached the subject today.
Not as you have just alluded to.
Starting a new account on the hopes of getting a different answer is not going to happen.

Here is the IMDb Reply.

According to my records on the site, I did indeed close it a few days back. I specifically remember clicking "Delete Account", unless there were further steps that needed to be taken afterwards. I would like to speak with an official rep. Thank you.
