I've been trying to rectify my credits for MONTHS. 

https://pro.imdb.com/name/nm3488378?ref_=hm_nv_mp_profile

I am not, nor was I EVER, a director or writer on any of these projects. I appeared as myself in both Beer: The Movie sketch comedy projects, and I was 10000% NOT in that Slumber Party project. Not at all. Not for one second. My cousin, also named Peter Hoare, is a screenwriter, and we've been trying to clear this up for months. No one named Peter Hoare wrote or directed the Beer: The Movie sketches, and for some reason IMDB simply refuses to delete it, even though it's completely inaccurate to have those credits listed. Can you please please please finally rectify this?

To reiterate, I DID NOT write on this projects that I'm credited as a writer on. I was IN them as an actor, not myself, and I certainly didn't write or direct them. Zero clue how I was credited as such. Here are the projects I'd love the writer/director credits finally removed from...

https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt0903599/?ref_=nm_nav_ov_knownfor_1

I was in them as an actor, that's it. Nothing more, nothing less. No one named Peter Hoare wrote them or directed them.

I'm the Peter Hoare who's page is this - https://pro.imdb.com/name/nm3488378?ref_=hm_prof_name Thank you so much. I'm Peter Hoare from Northport, Long Island. I only signed up for IMDBPro for him to try and fix the confusion. I don't work in entertainment. He's a working writer, and I just filmed some silly sketch comedy thing in 2006 with friends, and somehow my name got listed as a writer and director. I am NOT a writer or director, never was. I manage a bar! But I was in it, yes. 

My cousin's page is this - https://pro.imdb.com/name/nm2286682/?ref_=tt_fm_wrt. He's Peter Michael Hoare from Brooklyn, NY. All his credits are for real. He's a screenwriter. But when people look him up, my erroneous credits come up and I feel terrible and I know it drives him crazy so I'm trying to fix this. 

This weird mix up has been annoying us for literally years and we talk about it whenever we're together. I'd LOVE it finally rectified.

From what you've written, both titles in the Director and Writer section of Peter Hoare (V) belongs to Peter Hoare (II) and should be moved to that name page.

If that's the case, then a Name Split will need to be submitted to the correct name page.

What about the Actor and the Self credits that are listed on your page. Which ones belong to you and which belongs to your cousin?

I'm looking forward to your response.

No no no. ZERO BEER: THE MOVIE credits should be attributed Peter Hoare (II). That Peter Hoare had absolutely nothing to do with that thing. You can leave Peter Hoare (II) alone please. That is not me, that is my cousin.(I know this is confusing, hence it being unresolved for so long)

I, Peter Hoare (V),  was an actor in Beer: The Movie and Beer: The Movie 2. That's it. I just want the writer and director credits from that deleted. I didn't write it. I didn't direct it. I only "acted" in a few sketches in both.

I hope that clears things up. Sorry. This is a long gestating problem.

Unfortunately, it does not clear up the issue.

Were you mistakenly credited on the videos as a writer and director on both titles? Most information listed on IMDb depends on contributors submitting information on a title's opening and closing credits. Any errors are noted in the credits including jobs that were mistakenly credited to the wrong person. It's unfortunate if your name was listed as a prank.

I would strongly suggest filing a report through the IMDb Contact Us form to make your case to an IMDb representative.

I'm sorry I cannot be of help. Good luck.

Yes. I am NOT in the credits as a writer and director. I was mistakenly credited on IMDB as such though. I already filled out a report through the contact us form several times and I keep getting "cannot verify." I didn't write these things! But when someone Googles "Peter Hoare Writer" it comes up, attributed to my cousin, who actually is a writer, since our family name is so uncommon.

Can you please just delete the mistaken written by credit to fix this? No one named Peter Hoare wrote this weird little project. I've been trying to fix this forever. My name is NOT in the credits as a writer.

Bottom line, it says on here that I wrote these things, but I never did. I erroneously got credited and after many years I'd just finally like this rectified. Please.

Peter. Can you get your cousin Peter to submit the claim/correction submission for those writer/director credits? Coming from him and making reference to this topics URL in the submission may actually get the change through.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Please Please Please Delete An Incorrect Credit.

Can you please correct two credits on my page?

I did not write Beer: The Movie and Beer: The Movie 2. I'm incorrectly listed as a writer. I did not write these. Not a writer. No one named Peter Hoare wrote these. Also, I starred as MYSELF in these, not as an actor.

I acted in these projects. I "directed" a sketch in each. I DID NOT WRITE THESE. Can you please just finally correct this or direct me as to how I can prove that I didn't write these. It's legitimately becoming a problem for a family member. Can you please just fix this? It's very easy. I didn't write it. So please remove my writing credit. I don't understand why this is such an undertaking.

Please understand how frustrating this is for me. I didn't write these. How can I prove that I didn't? I appeared in them, did not write. I'm not even challenge the "directed by" credit because I technically did direct one piece in the first one, two in the second. But I didn't write either. Please tell me how I can prove to you that I didn't write them. I see no reason why I KEEP getting challenged on this by IMDB. Can I get the distributor to reach out to you or something?
