Could you please delete me from the short film Monotous. It is the same production as "Vervelend". It concerns Contribution #190518-120727-083000. Twice I did try to get my share deleted. So far I had no luck. Thank you in advance.

Are Vervelend and Monotonous the same film? It sure appears so from this link.

Anyway, there is a "Lies Waterman" credited as a producer for Vervelend. Are you saying this is a different "Lie Waterman"?

Hi Lies, 

Sometimes we may have two separate listings for the same title (this may happen for example when a film is announced but the title is later changed). Rather than deleting your credit from the duplicate title, you should submit a correction to merge the two titles. 

To submit a correction, you should use the 'Title Correction' option to change the title of one film to the second. For example, if you know that the pages for Untitled XYZ Project (2006) and ABC Movie, The (2006) refer to the same film, you would go to the page for Untitled XYZ Project (2006), click on the "Edit Page" Info button at the bottom of the page, select the "Title Correction" option and change the title of the film to ABC Movie, The (2006). This will result in a merge of the two titles. 

Important notes: 

1) you need to submit the correction so that the old/outdated/incorrect title is changed to the current/correct title, not the other way around. Go to the page for the old/incorrect title and enter the title of the second listing as the correct title. You'll need to enter the title exactly as it appears in the second listing (you should get a message warning you that the second title already exists: this is ok). 

2) please verify that the two titles really refer to the same film/show. Don't be confused by similarities or by different films/programs that just happen to share the same title. For example X Files, The (1993) (TV) is not the same as "X Files, The" (1993). The first listing is for the pilot for the TV series, the second is for the series itself. 
It is always a good idea to check movie connections, in case 2 seemingly identical titles are remakes or different versions. 

Thank you in advance for your help in keeping our data accurate.

Dear Meredith,

Thank you for your response. Vervelend and Monotous are the same film. The title should not be merged, because "Vervelend" is the Dutch title. Monotous is the translation. I am the producer of this short film. Please delete me from Monotous like requested.

Hi Lies,

Thanks for the further clarification. IMDb generally does not delete titles. Since these are the same film, I have done the merge for you. This will effectively delete Monotonous. Once the merge is done, I will make sure that it looks clean and add the title Monotonous as an aka title.

Are both titles your film, or is one of them not your film?

IMDb requires that those two titles be merged.
The reply by Merideth explains what to do.
Also instructions can be found here....How can I merge two titles?
