Hi Jon,

So probably the way you submitted it has not matched the IMDb requirements, and need to be processed differently.

Can you share the latest submission ID (18 digits), so an IMDb staff can have a look and s/he visit this topic?

My most recent request for this change (deletion) was made in: Contribution #: 190201-193719-162000

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi, Joel. How much of your so-called "factual information" is not even based in verifiability or evidence?

Hi Joel, thank you for your reply. I can assure you that I am not, have not, ever been married to Richelle Wilks. My computer left unattended and unlocked one day at work when a co-worker thought it would be funny to go into my IMDB account and list Richelle and I as married.....do you understand what I am saying???

So....."In order to continue offering our users an accurate and trustworthy service, it is our policy not to alter or delete any kind of correct/factual information from our records."........you need to reconsider your policys, because right now, your not providing accurate information. It's slanderous information that I have been politely requesting to have repaired for close to a year now. Please fix this inaccurate, false, untrue, information.
Thank you.

Thanks for your help.  I realize this is a silly situation, however, the current 'Marital' status on my IMDB page is 100% inaccurate.  I am not married.
Kindly,
Jonathan Matthews

Ordinarily things like that are not approved without proof being supplied.

Jeorj,

How can he prove that he is NOT married?

That is not my point, Vincent Fournols. I'm referring to the original submission.

Jeorj, apparently, no proof required.
I just married a dead actor to an actress.
Now getting by the editors.
That would not happen because it's John Wayne.
Fairly unknown actors or actresses would probably get zero scrutiny.

Hey I gave you a fairly!
Which JM (    ) are you?
This my IMDb page name.
Same as here
Ed Jones (XLIX)
I'm really unknown with a high ranking of 308,000 on the STARmeter.
I owe that number to my work here.
I was hanging out in the 7,000,000 range until the last 6 months.

Well.........STILL NO CHANGE.  IMDB, seems to be 'uncaring' and 'ignorant' to my continued requests. Re: 190201-193719-162000

Are you sure that this entry was done on purpose as a joke by colleagues and that it is not a mistaken entry for another Jonathan Matthews in the database?

BTW, you did not answer two questions asked to you by the other contributors:
Which Jonathan Matthews are you (i.e. what is the link to your name page), as asked by Ed?
And in the first place, what is the initial submission ID that "married" you? Jeorj pointed out that such an entry would have required some editor check before being validated and published.

Vincent,

Yes, I am 100% sure "that this entry was done on purpose as a joke by colleagues". This is my profile:  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1107531/
Now, regarding the " initial submission ID that "married" you?"......My contribution history page doesn't allow me to go that far back.  NO Editor EVER validated the information before publishing.  Richelle Wilks, is my girlfriend.....we are NOT married, period.  For crying out loud, this is worse than trying to rectify an Identity Theft!
Thank you for your help Vincent, I do appreciate it.

Hi Jonathan,

.../contribution/history is still in beta testing, but .../updates/history should give you access to all your submissions.
I think that retrieving the initial submission erroneously validated by IMDb is key to finding the way out of your issue.

Hi Jonathan -

As Joel mentioned in an above post, if an individual was married but since separated or divorced, a correction should be submitted to the listed information to reflect any changes, as attempts to remove it entirely will not be approved by an editor.

However, in this case, I have now removed the marriage details based on the submission error you reported. 

Cheers!
