Fifth attempt to correct/delete the budget on my feature film

Please note, this is my fifth attempt to delete the budget amount on my film "Rene (The Movie)" which was for the film as a part fiction/part documentary project. It has now changed to a feature film and our budget is much higher - though we are not certain of the exact amount, yet. This amount, I am afraid, is creating tremendous problems with our funders/investors! Also, note that the 'budget' amount does not appear on the regular IMDb but is seen on IDMb Pro. Very much appreciate your attention to this request to DELETE the budget of $600,000 from our film's profile. Many thanks for your time.

IMDb does not like to delete information, so you are unlikely to be able to have the Budget amount removed. They are, however, anxious to have accurate data. Therefore your best option is to submit the best estimate you have for the new budget as a correction, rather than another delete request.

By the way, perhaps you can also answer my other question: My full name is Homa Taj Khalili Nasab which is terribly long. I am submitting all my films to various film festivals as credited : Homa Taj. Yet, IMDb has my profile as Homa Nasab, born : Homa Taj. It makes it sound as if I have changed my name which is not the case. In fact, I have uploaded at least one festival submission, so far, on Withoutabox (which is and IMDb site) with Filmmaker credit as Homa Taj. Can you tell me how I can them change my profile to Homa Taj - so as to avoid further confusion. Thanking thee, again, DavidAH_ca !!

To change the name heading on your page, go to your page and click the "edit page" button.  The first option listed is "name correction or merge."  To the right of that, change "no change" to "add correction."  Scroll down and click "continue" button.

Enter your name as "Taj, Homa" and uncheck the box to preserve credits, if you're being credited as "Homa Taj" on screen. Explain in the explanation field that it's you and that's your name as being credited going forward. Click the "check these updates" button.

You'll be given a list of same/similar names.  Check the button next to:
  • This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Taj, Homa'.
Check the box to acknowledge the warning, if your name doesn't need to be preserved differently, if you were credited on screen by the old name.
  • By unticking the box to preserve existing credits, you are implying they are incorrect.
    • If you have changed your name through marriage, with SAG, or for any other personal or artistic reason and you plan to receive all future credits under your new name, please leave the box ticked
    • If the original credit(s) do not match those on the end credits (they were added to IMDb incorrectly) or they were badly transliterated, please acknowledge the warning below and continue

     Warning understood, go ahead anyway.


Then click the "recheck these updates" button and it should then let you submit the change.

Note that, though the choice to select says, "new person not already listed," it means  "new name" and is actually the correct choice, though it sounds like it's wrong.
