This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: An old friend got herself completely removed from IMDb. How?

IMDb editors and admins LOVE telling
actors “YOU CAN'T REMOVE YOURSELF FROM IMDb!” because “WE
NEVER, EVER, EVER REMOVE ACCURATE CREDITS!” Frankly, I've seen some
folks here in this very room treat actors rather cruelly when
they ask if there's a way to remove themselves from a film or from
the site (“If you didn't want to be on IMDb, you shouldn't have
done that walk-on in your friend's zombie movie"). And we all know that
IMDb/Amazon has gone to great and expensive lengths to enforce its
right to never delete accurate info.

Okay, then...so how did this actress,
Veronica Grey, manage to COMPLETELY “disappear” herself from
IMDb? She's GONE. Vanished. Removed from 20 acting credits, 3
producing credits, 1 casting credit and 2 “self” credits.

Here's her former page:
http://www.imdb.com:80/name/nm1227579

Here's the link as seen via
the Internet Archive:

I knew this actress, so I can testify
that she exists and those credits were genuine. The only other thing
I can attest to is that she has lots of money.

So, is that what it takes? I'm not
casting aspersions; I genuinely don't know. But what I DO know is
that if she can do it, others can too, right? So I'm very interested
in finding out how she did it. And the next time an actor posts here
asking, “how can I remove myself from a film” or “how can I
remove myself from IMDb,” they can get a concrete answer instead of
smug and snark.

I posted this question last week and
got one response from a “champion”-ranked helper who basically
said, “Hmm, this shouldn't be. I'll look into it.”

And I never heard back!

So here's my second try.
