I have an alternate name that was NEVER used in any of my credits. I would like it to be deleted from my page but the system doesn't give an option to delete or correct that field. How can I do that?

I also have an alternate name that was not used in any of my credits. Please help me delete it from my page... I ticked the box to "not preserve alternate credits" but the "as" attribute still posted after my credits. The correct name is spelled with an H. Thank you for your help with removing this!

Hi Michelle,

I also have an alternate name that I used to use to differentiate myself as I have quite a 'common name' on IMDb. I was never credited in any project as my alternate name and I would really like the name removed please. I tried to send a message through via IMDb but instead of deleting my other profile - it was merged with my current profile, and as no one visits my other account, the ratings on my current profile have dropped by almost 1million! I wish completely split the name merge and delete 'Lolliella Wilson'!

Here is my link: http://www.imdb.me/lauraellenwilson

Thank you so much in advance!

Very happy to find this thread. Hope you can sort out my credit !  I am director INDRA BHOSE.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0080424/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr43
 I worked on a programme THE 80'S - THE DECADE THAT MADE US.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2801364/?ref_=nm_flmg_asst_1 where I am listed as 2nd Unit Director  The production company spelt my name incorrectly as Indre Bhose and this then appeared as an Alternate Name on my credits page. The credit has since been corrected on the programme page but I am still listed as having an Alternate Name. I do not and never had had an Alternate Name. I would be very grateful if you could remove this from my page. With many thanks in advance, Indra

If in fact you were credited on screen with the alternate spelling, then IMDb will keep that spelling listed as an alternate name.

It was whoever filled in the listing to IMDB that made the mistake.

Then I would suggest getting a screen grab of your credit and including it in a new post.

Oh well, I just checked out an episode on YouTube, and the name in the credits is indeed Indre Bhose.

I wish to get credit FOR ONLY the work I have accomplished as Larry Parks IV. My agent mistakenly listed a different IMDB actor 'Barry Bell' as an alternate name for me. That is a mistaken assumption...please SEPARATE US and put it back in the previous form BEFORE our credits were mashed together...( I have correctly identified which credits are mine and which are his...).  :)

You should really start a new post for this issue.
