That is not required that you give a link.
It would also be best that you post no personal information unless an official Staff Employee asks for it.

Charon, while it is not required, post no links unless you don't mind everyone having access and viewing this.
It is best however to wait for an Employee of IMDb to respond if you have any questions that need answering.
Thanks

Hi, Charon Scerra. Which of the filmography items associated with your name do not belong there? Depending on the exact nature of the situation, a name split operation would be most appropriate or a credit move operating would be most appropriate.

The person that worked on that project doesn't seem to have an IMDB page. It is a credit of a Production Assistant and I am an Actress so I don't really do that.

Thank you for your answer, Charon Scerra. It would appear that gromit82 has provided further insight as to how to deal with a name split in this circumstance. I should hope that you will be able to do this as explained.

Charon: If the production assistant credits belong to a different person with the same name as you, the best way to handle this would be a Name Split as Jeorj suggested above. The goal would be to have those credits assigned to a name with a new roman numeral who would be listed as Scerra, Charon (II).

So would I have to create an IMDB account with this new name in order to do a name split?

Charon, this can only be accomplished if there is another "Proven" Charon. Not just one made up to satisfy your desire to rid your page of a valid credit. Proof would be needed.

Charon, Ralf has so kindly provided the links to these productions.
And as you have a unique name, there is most likely no other such person, the name split would be not a good idea. Those may not be what you do, but you are credited for them as seen below in the screen grab.
