Help deleting credits for projects where I was purposefully NOT credited on screen.

Ok... let's give this a shot:

This is me: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2263787/

I have a number of credits on my page that should not be there.  Despite submitting multiple tickets, IMDB still won't remove them.

In all of these cases, I was UNCREDITED in the final work.  My name appears nowhere on screen, as was my agreement with the producers of these projects.  Because my name does not appear on screen, I would like these credits removed, in accordance with IMDB's own policies.

Please help.  I'm so sick of this.

These are the titles I should be purged of all credits (producer, writer, sound, lighting) from these films:

Robot Apocalypse: The Early Years

There is a few pages named Blake Taylor, so  to ensure that this is not someone else's page The best thing to do is make a new page .

What?  Why?  This is my page.  Most all the credits on it are correct.

("In all )of these cases, I was UNCREDITED in the final work." If you are  talking about just a few credits that need to be deleted then this will have to be done here https://contribute.imdb.com/updates   like ( Matt 2 ) Matt 3rd ) ... this will alllow the name to be change and not link you to this Title page, and will have to be done to every one title. hope this helps

Yeah.  I've already tried submitting all those changes 3 separate times through the imdb edit link.  Nothing has changed over the past several months.  This is why I'm posting here.

I had the same problem. If IMDB believes you were in the project, even if you were not, they will never take it down.

Hi MaximusFSU -

It is our policy not to alter or delete any kind of correct/factual information or credit from our records, this is why your recent credit deletion requests were rejected.  However, since you verified that there were no on-screen credits for the titles you referenced, the "uncredited" attribute has now been added to those episode credits.  Please note that since you worked on those titles, even though your name was not credited, we will need to retain the credit listings.

Hey Michelle, thanks for responding.  

Maybe I wasn't as clear as I could have been in the initial post. These credits are not correct, even if listed as "uncredited."  I told the producer I wished to be uncredited because I was not a part of the project.  I was not the writer.  I was not the sound mixer.  I was not the producer.  I was not the lighting technician.  I literally only lent a hand and made lunch while these guys were shooting their web shorts at my apartment complex.  Why they decided to list me as all these positions, I have no idea.  Possibly to lend legitimacy to the project, or maybe it was their way of trying to say thanks.  I don't know.  But I would ask not to be associated with something that I in no way substantively contributed to...

I think these credits should be removed because they are, in actuality, factually incorrect... even when notated as "uncredited."

Can you please help me out with this?  I understand that you cant just remove things just because people want them gone, but I literally did not do any of what it says I did.

Thank you.

Hello Michelle,

I was falsely credited on a film that I was not in whatsoever. Can you take it down? The reference number is #171021-073732-507000
