Finding this poor excuse for an imdb page would explain not hearing back from new employers...
Does this make any sense to anyone?? How can I make it go away? Any ideas are appreciated.
Thanks for the other like!!
Well you are not going to like my reply unfortunately. The reason the editors denied it was This statement by you...........
I figure this one silly......................credit.............................................Etc
You never denied you did it. You just want it removed for personal reasons. When the news is reported on TV, facts are checked (We Hope!) and that news is broadcast. You cant take back the news. Same goes for IMDb. They dont retract facts. If you have screen grabs of the credits for the credit showing your name missing, post it here.
This is their policy.........
I tried to delete data, but it still appears on IMDb. Why?
IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records. If you notice an error or omission in our data, please submit a correction or deletion via the "Edit page" button located at the bottom of every name and title page and our staff will be happy to review it and make all applicable changes. We have a guide to adding data here.
However, IMDb will not remove accurate information. If you try to delete an item of data which is accurate, your delete will not be processed. Please be aware that attempts to delete accurate data will count against your overall accuracy rating and may result in all your submissions taking longer to process along with additional proof requirements.
I have a couple of recommendations.
1. Go to your name page and click "Edit page". On the next screen, on the Biography line, select "Add 1 item". Scroll down and click "Continue".
On the next screen, you will be able to submit a mini-biography for yourself. See https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/biographical-data-guidelines/GMT9T242VQADZUQM#bio for the guidelines about this. In your biography, you can describe yourself based on your primary career activities. Think along the following lines: Bee Bennett works in the business affairs department at ZYX Film Studios. ... She is a graduate of Miskatonic University and earned her MBA at Wossamatta University Business School. ...
Assuming that your biography gets posted, that will be one of the first things anyone sees on your page (whether on the free IMDb site or IMDbPro, so that will help provide your prospective employers with a better perspective on your career.
2. It appears that most of the production assistants on that episode of "American Idol" were supposedly credited on-screen, based on the IMDb listing at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404031/fullcredits. Hence, if you can track down that episode and find the full credits, including the list of production assistants, that would be evidence that you were not a production assistant on the show. (After all, if they listed 30 or more other production assistants, and they didn't list you, that would imply that you weren't a production assistant on that show.) I'm not going to address how to use that evidence yet because I don't know whether you will find it on YouTube or elsewhere. (I found a clip on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcjZBrKXi2M but it is cut off before the end of the credits and none of the production assistants' names are shown.)
Please keep in mind, though, that if you did work as a production assistant on some other episode and were credited for that, then you ought to have an IMDb-listed credit for that episode, notwithstanding that it was not in your main occupation.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
