Were you credited in the onscreen credit roll? If not, you could use the info above to (perhaps) resubmit with an (uncredited) attribute. If you were credited in the credits roll, you should provide a screenshot of your credit as proof.

Thank you - I never even looked at the credits onscreen to see if it was there but it should have been. This has happened with many of my credits over night like someone was just systematicly removing them. Some are over a decade old and some I produced , acted in and designed jewelry for that my name is in the beginning And end credits as well as the poster and all advertisement - how does someone remove something
Ike that? Who can I talk to abou it!

There is no one to "talk to"; IMDB does not provide phone support.

Simply edit the shows where your credits belong and submit screenshots of your name in the credits

A WAY WITH MURDER a film I produced, acted in and designed jewelry for that has been wrongfully removed by someone who has no knowledge or authority to do so. My name is on the poster, all advertisement , beginning and end credits.

Here is the reference number
150515-151623-963000

Here are links to behind the scenes footage of some of my role ( and other things)

For these credits, could you provide screen capture of your name appearing in the on screen credits? If you were not credited, did you include the attribute, "(uncredited)?" If you were not credited on screen but did not include the attribute, this would account for the IMDb credits being removed. If you were not credited on screen, this evidence might help you receive an "uncredited" entry, but if you were credited on screen, what you've supplied does nothing to verify the credit. A screen capture of your name appearing in the credit roll is what staff would be seeking as a way to verify that your name appeared on screen. Otherwise, this evidence would be what they'd expect for an "uncredited" listing.

I will capture a screen credit of my name in the credits and submit it - it's very intetesting that My name on The poster and paid advertisement on something like A WAY WITH MURDER Where they can clearly see all videos and premiere footage I am in as well as celebrity websites - I would not be speaking as a producer actor etc if I wasn't and that it means nothing to imdb? I'm at a loss
Someone who is not imdb or a part of the film has removed these credits to be vindictive about a personal situation - I just need imdb to resolve this as soon as possible. Some of these
credits have been up for over a decade . It is unfair to have to deal with something that is so simply black and white while I am all the way in France at the Cannes Film Festval

If you can upload it here, then re-submit it, you can include a link to this thread for evidence they can use to support it. It would go through faster that way.

Yes..kind of a pain in the...

But yes, IMDb primarily documents what's in the on screen credits. So, that's always the best evidence you can give rather than what you've posted so far here. But being on the poster or photos implying involvement doesn't always indicate what's in the on screen credits. I am sure there are many, many cases where IMDb staff would agree that credit is due, but that's not what they're here for. They simply document what's on screen, accurate or deserving aside. They are just documenting in a searchable manner through which users can follow films, actors and other types of involvement in tv/film, as credited on screen.

Anyway, good luck. I am sure it'll all get corrected with the proper documentation (which will help avoid having it get reversed in the future!) being applied.

I thank you, I understand and I agree - but these were NOT removed by imdb, they were done by an individual, and there was proof when they were originally added years ago. As I said I will have to wait till I get back to LA from France to take the time to get all the screen captures for things that already were proven and in place years ago. They should go back to the original date they were added and re add them. People should not be able to remove anything from someone's page with out proof or documentation that they worked on the project and have solid knowledge + proof of what they are saying - just because someone worked on one project it doesn't make them credible in all projects - specialy ones they were not involved in - imdb should take this into account with everyone.

I just realized NO ONE Could have verified A WAY WITH MURDER Because myself and the other producers are the only ones with copies - they could not have checked AMYONE on this film - it is all correct - they just could not have checked - it is a direct attack singleing me out . I need all of these credits restored

A company would not put you're name on its poster /dvd for a film ( A Way With Murder) as one of its producers if you were NOT one of them ( logic ) when are you going to put my credits back up?

Maybe...maybe not. An image of a poster doesn't settle the credited vs. uncredited issue.

There's an outside chance it's still processing.

In the mean time, I'd suggest you look into these items. Can you get copies and provide screen captures of the credits?  IMDb's mission and purpose is to document what's in the on screen credits. An unrelated photo of an actor with a twitter post authored by you doesn't really help anything, as far as listing on IMDb.

If you can first find out whether you're credited or uncredited, it would allow you to make an accurate submission of the information. Inaccuracies may get you rejected and make it difficult to get all future submissions easily accepted. You guessed at it above..can you find out for sure? Then, if you can get and post a screen shot of your name appearing in the credits, it'll be easy  to get a submission accepted. If your credits were systematically removed, it seems maybe someone found one wrong entry and checked up on your others. It's a regular thing for users to audit credits while they watch movies.

Do you know of a way to see "A Way With Murder?" I wouldn't mind doing so and making the submission..but can't find a way to see it.

You say above you have a copy...why did you not provide the evidence needed from the copy you have???  You mention no one could have verified it because you and one other person have the only copies but that makes no sense. If it was removed because you and the other person won't give up the evidence, why should they list it??? Data is removed or rejected daily because it could not be verified. If you have the means, give it up. If not, don't expect them to be able to magically reproduce it.

I'm in France, i was just at the Cannes film festival and can't get to my regular lap top to do so until I return to the U.S. Next month To bad this wasn't the year all of us producers were at Cannes in the Carlton selling " A Way With Murner, at least then I'd have a copy in my back pocket. Seriously,- I'm disgusted something ad reficulous ad this happened . I should not be questioned in the first place, specially on this film - I hope this answered why I haven't put up 'Proof' yet.

Why should you be any different than the rest of us? We all have to provide a means to verify data if there is no way for staff to do it. I am not sure what you think sets you apart from all of the rest of us. It doesn't matter to anyone else here why you haven't done so but when you repeatedly are told to do so to get it approved and then you suddenly throw it out there that you are the only one with a copy and you choose, instead, to post completely irrelevant pictures, you sure make people think you're trying to fool everyone (especially when you then post to start the conversation all over as if hoping you'll get somone different helping who may not have seen your previous comments...just seems shady, to me). Post when you have it and I am sure it'll get the submission pushed through. Saying they can't possibly have verified it and therefore should not have removed it is silly, though. They remove or reject items all day long, every day, if they cannot be verified. So what you're saying is just completely backwards.

Good luck!

I don't have a clue...I think it's time we get over it, though. Don't you? I can't really see what it matters. They take our word for things. It might be they accepted it at the word of whomever submitted it. You suggested someone was, one by one, auditing your credits. It could be that someone did just that and could find no way to verify it so it was removed. You and I could only guess, at this point. I have a feeling you probably know...that's just me. But for sure, just because it was there before, is no indication of any kind that it should be there today. Things get changed/corrected all the time. One thing is for sure...it's extremely difficult to get things removed completely. So I am sure someone had some inkling about it to have had it so easily removed. Then, again, it could have been a glitch of some sort...it really doesn't matter. At this point it either should be added or not. What happened in the past doesn't matter. They won't put something up based on, "well, it used to be there...so put it back!"

What submission does these support? Did hou include the "uncredited" attribute? It seems to be missing from a large number of your credits. If a credit does not appear on screen, you are required to add "uncredited." if you haven't submitted to add tbis credit yet, when you do, add a link to this thread so the page editor can see the screen caps and decide if they actually verify the accuracy of the addition you're requesting. Just so you know, screen caps need to prove you were clearly recognizeable...I wouldn't think yours accomplish that, but it's required for uncredited listings.

You mention you did not know if you received credit for Sharknado...you did not. That is likely why it got removed from your IMDb page. You seem to have added it again so it needed to be corrected again and is now properly listed as uncredited.

I don't know what that's supposed to mean. You're either in on screen credits or not. IMDb documents that alone. It's not a resume service, though they offer one on Pro. Since you have Pro, you certainly can list anytbing you want without continually falsifying the title and name pages of IMDb.
