I am listed as a Production Assistant on my page for a show that I was not involved in. Also I am not a production assistant. I cannot work out at all how to remove it. All info on imdb is so complicated and nothing works. Can anyone please help me? Thanks so much.

Hello Robert Popper,
Where are you credited as a Production Assistant?

It's very difficult to prove a negative, that you weren't involved in a particular project or that you didn't do something

Hi Robert -

Are you referring to the credits listed for the show "Liza on Demand"?  If so and you didn't work on this series it's possible that another individual with the same name did, instead of requesting the removal of the credits I would encourage you to request to move the credits to a separate listing on the site for "Robert Popper (II)".

Please submit the applicable credit corrections through our online Update form, all pages on our site include an 'Edit Page' button which allows comments/corrections to be submitted to our data editors.  For additional help correcting credits please see our Correcting Credits Help guide.  Cheers!

Thank you so much. Yes I am referring to that.

I have read your correcting credits help page but it still unclear where and what to click on. Do I click on the page for LIZA ON DEMAND? How do I actually do this? Myself and three imdb colleagues have been trying to work it out, following these instructions and still can't work it out. Sorry - please do advise! Many thanks again.

Hi Robert, 

I was planning to post the steps on how to correct this but the instructions were so wordy and convoluted, I submitted the changes on your behalf.

Contribution #180427-202332-101000

Because there were multiple titles, the update was submitted from the name page. As Michelle mentioned in her post, a Roman numeral was needed to differentiate your credits and the other person's credits. 

Also, according to your filmography, unless I'm mistaken, you are based in the UK. It appears that the other person is based in the US. That's according to the title's IMDb production pages. I added that info for the IMDb editors as proof that the credits should be moved to a new page.

Give at least 72 hours for processing.

Thanks GMJChampion,
Yes, the explanation was quite wordy, but I struggled through it (especially doing it on an iPhone)  :)
I never make corrections for other people because it could affect my trustworthiness rating if it's later proven to be incorrect

But thanks

Robert, 

Glad to be of help. Steve Crook's post below will be helpful in the future in case you find credits that are mistakenly listed to the wrong name page. 

Take care.

Hello Robert,
You are listed as a production assistant for 8 episodes of Liza on Demand.
The easiest way is to change it from the page about you, Robert Popper athttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm0691583/
Then hit the Edit page button near the bottom of the page.
In the Filmography (non-acting) section,
by Other Crew member Credits, select Correct / Delete.
Hit Continue
For each row for “Liza on Demand”, change the Action from Keep to Change.
Down towards the bottom of the page, tick the box to Show name?
Hit Check these updates.
In the first row for “Liza on Demand”, change your name from Popper, Robert to Popper, Robert (II)
Do that for all of the other rows saying “Liza on Demand”
In one of the rows, tick the box to provide an explanation to assist in processing this change
Hit Check these updates
Tick the box by This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Popper, Robert (II)'.
Do that on each row for Liza on Demand
Give the explanation that you are Robert Popper and that you weren’t a Production Assistant on it so you want to split it out to another person called Robert Poper (II)
Hit Re-check these updates.
The background should turn green(ish) and it should offer you a Submit button.
Hit the Submit button.

Then sit back and wait for your submission to be checked, approved and processed and for the database to be updated.
