Remove Credits

I know that I have been voicing my opinion on having credits corrected/deleted from the IMDB database - I have given information that is accurate, whether old or new - I'm not asking for the world, but just a little help in completing these transactions. 

I have two titles on my page, that yes I was originally a part of, but due to creative differences I left both of these projects - I was given credits that I do not own, nor do I deserve. 

I'm really only seeking out justice to have them removed from my page and given to the correct person who ended up taking my place or fulfilling those production needs. 

The evidence I have provided has been a help in some cases, but these are the final pieces that for my own well being, and for the accuracy of what IMDB presents, I would just like them taken down/corrected. 

The hardest part obviously has I have expressed in previous messages is showing these films because unfortunately, the titles don't exist. There are no films to show, only small snippets of screengrabs that were somehow saved on a hard drive. 

Please, if someone could help me write these wrongs, I would be very appreciative. 

Thanks,

Hi.
The issue is that your attachment was made public and published. It was accurate at the time. Accuracy is what IMDb strives for. That accuracy is based on verifiable data provided at the time of inclusion to the database. The same is required if a credited is to be removed or reassigned to another. Verifiable! A trusted verifiable media source is needed to alter an original inclusion. A submission alone for your request must be backed up by sources that confirm that your submission is valid. Those would be an entertainment or news media outlet story. Without that no changes can be made.

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.

Believe it or not I actually have submitted evidence (screengrabs) for one of the projects in question - but was met with resistance. The other sadly is a project that doesn’t even exist - which I have petitioned to just have it removed entirely from the database - this brings up the thought of accuracy - I am in no way petitioning to have items taken down that do exist, and are correct - but I feel that if someone who was part of that team submitted evidence or has the ability to insure to some degree that this is the case - which could be backed up by other involved, that IMDB should make the corrections. These are essentially two credits that are leaving a blemish on my resume/profile/portfolio - it’s hard enough to have to explain to people when they ask you about it - that oh, sorry I didn’t actually do that. This is because it exist on IMDB - which everyone seems to use as a background check into someone’s career.

Was  the screengrab backed up with a URL link?
And was it several screen grabs that show other cast and crew for a reference?
Sometimes a single screen grab only shows minimal data.

I had 4 screengrabs - that’s all that exists of the project - there is no link to a film on the internet - these grabs were copy and pasted into an email, which got the directing credit corrected, but not the writing credit.

With the other film - a while back a submission was put in when the films original credits were being put together - which at that time I had SOME involvement - however creative differences lead to my departure, and the elimination of my credit - this film however doesn’t be exist either -

The problem with both is that neither exist, neither have ever been shown or seen by anyone - none of the filmmakers even have copies of it - which is why I understand it to be eligible for deletion entirely - there is no evidence of a film ever being completed, shown, seen etc...

ANSWER IS NO.

Then every thing else in your explanation is irrelevant.
As per my above explanation,it's all that matters.

accuracy is based on verifiable data provided at the time of inclusion to the database. The same is required if a credited is to be removed.

IE: NO WAY TO VERIFY.

All your words need backup to an internet news source. Without it no amount of words or screenshots provided without a URL BACKUP matter.

*why they (IMDB) corrected a credit with only photographic evidence, that didn’t connect to a url?

Clearly if they were willing to make the initial correction with just the evidence I could find on a hard drive none of my argument is irrelevant.

The requested documentation for this and only this matter is all that matters. You are comparing apples to oranges. For this matters process, and this matters process only, you cannot provide the required requested documentation needed.

What was done on other submissions that you make reference to are irrelevant.
Supply the needed documentation in the requested form required or your submission cannot be processed. It is that simple.

Asking why this or that happened on another unrelated (UNRELATED) submission is a non comparison.

This deletion submission requires that you supply what is requested on this matter alone. Not what was required on a previous submission.

Supply what is asked for. If you cannot than this matter has no need for a continuing dialog.

So any reply has no need for an answer.

Sorry, but those are the facts.

Be well.

Nope, I find that response unacceptable - if you don’t have the answer it’s fine, I wasn’t asking you.

But the fact is, I find it to be a relevant argument - and the reason is, one of the projects in question had information corrected on it without a url - only grabs - because that is what’s avaialble. I’m using that same information, which clearly shows that I didn’t have involvement in the two departments I was credited for.

So to compare apples to oranges - I find that this argument is valid and makes sense - you can’t correct one item without a url - but expect a url when it was clearly stated in the thread that these items were all that was available and all that remained of a project, and they knew it.

For the other project, sure - until I find the source material, I have no way of showing the correction.

But the fact is that there should be some kind of leeway with these types of items - especially because it’s so easy to add yourself to any project on IMDb without question or photographic or url proof.

Thanks Ed - if you don’t work for IMDB you don’t need to respond to my thread any more.

Cheers,
Chris

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but submitting until they "submit" is not going to happen.
That tactic has been tried.
That tactic always fails.
Save yourself a lot of aggravation.
If you can't supply what is asked for, then you are beating a dead horse.
Trying to help you here, not beating you down.
Give up and move along.

Cheers

Ed

Sorry, giving up isn’t in my vocabulary - especially for things I’m correct about - I appreciate whatever you’re trying to accomplish with your sort of uplifting or helpful words - but I will get what is needed.

Thanks!
