There is an incorrect credit on my page. I have tried to figure out how to remove it myself, to no avail. This is me: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0279574/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 Under Miscellaneous Crew there is a credit for Jenny Fisher (NOT ME) under Saved By The Bell (executive asst). I need this removed asap. Please help. Thanks!

Don't try to remove it, it was probably someone else called Jennifer (or Jenny) Fisher who worked on it. At most you should get the name changed to Jennifer Fisher (II) then your entry will become Jennifer Fisher (I) or get her name changed to Jenny Fisher (II) as that's how she seems to be cridited in Saved by the Bell: The New Class.

As I see it, the second choice above would be the correct solution. It's a semi-complicated fix but here's how:
1. Go to your page.
2. Go to the first Saved By the Bell episode you want fixed (Forget and Forgive) and click on the link.
3. Go to the bottom of the new page and click on "Edit Page" button.
4. Go down to "Other Crew" and click on the selection "correct/delete" in the box on the right. Go to bottom of page and hit the "Continue" button.
5. Go to the "Fisher, Jennifer (I)" line, click in the left hand box and make it "Correct". Hit "Check these updates" button at bottom.
6. Click into the name box and type Fisher, Jenny (II). DON'T click on any of the drop-down NAME options. Click in the Attribute box and clear it out completely. Click on "provide and explanation..." box. Click on "Check these updates" box at bottom.
7. Type in an Explanation, something like "I am Jennifer Fisher (I) and this is not my credit, so I am changing this to the next highest "Jenny Fisher" to preserve the credit."
8. At the bottom of the yellow box, click "This is a different person not currently listed - create "Fisher, Jenny (II)'.
9. At bottom of page click on "Re-check these updates".Everything should turn green and then click on "Submit these updates"
10. Go back to your page and do it all over again with the next episode.

It's a lot of work; if someone knows an easier way, I'd like to learn it.

If you start at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0279574/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 then 'Edit Page' and 'correct/delete' other crew member under Filmography (non acting) you will find a checkbox labelled 'Show name?' at the bottom of the list next to the dropdown to add more credits. Select that box and select 'correct' for all the incorrect credits.

When you 're-check ...' the list will have had the name added in an extra column and you can edit the name in all the incorrect episodes to be Fisher, Jenny (II). Do the other things Nick suggested - clear the attribute, add explanation etc. - best to do it for all the episodes but at least you can copy/paste the explanation more easily.

Another option is to do one episode, wait until the change is live and the new name exists, then do the rest using the name that should then be available to select. If you choose this option it is probably worth saying that this is what you intend to do in the explanation for the first change.

You're right Owen, that will let her pick out just the entries for Fisher, Jennifer (I) (as Jenny Fisher) in 'Saved by the Bell: The New Class'

Well done both, they're a good set of instructions

Excellent! Thank you, Owen. That's a great way to solve the problem. I never even noticed that "Show name" button!!

Thanks, everybody! The only issue is when I try to change the name on all the incorrect credits, I get a warning saying that Fisher, Jenny (II) is not currently in the database.  What should I do?  Thank you!

Look down at the bottom of that yellow warning and you'll see a box that says "This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Fisher, Jenny (II)"  Just click this box and it should be okay.

Hi Jennifer,

It's possible that you haven't submitted the update to our data editors then. Can you upload a screenshot of the view once you access the link and we can advise further? You should have got an email receipt of your submission as well which lists the number.

Regards,
Will
