Yo has it happened in the past where people try and take down legit stuff? Like official movies, videogames and tv shows? Are they allowed to do that? Or does all that stuff stay locked in the site forever? Like i would imagine that everything that’s legit remains here, coz isn’t that the goal of imdb? To record all the history of movies tv and videogames and basically all entertainment?

Thx

Jasey: Several people have posted substantially the same question as this. 

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/deleting-valid-entries
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/film-removal
and others that I can't find any more.

You should assume that true information is going to remain on IMDb permanently.

However, I really want to know what motivated you to ask this question. There seem to have been several people who were "just curious" about this issue, which seemed to me like they were afraid that something specific might be deleted or that something specific had been deleted improperly.

If you have some title in mind that you are concerned about, then please mention it, and the contributors or staff here may be able to explain why it has been, or has not been, or should be, or should not be, deleted.

Hello Jasey,

I asked something like this a few days ago, you can go look at the responses I was given there.

Allen: Thanks for posting. Here's the link to your thread:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/question-about-one-of-the-help-pages

I had wanted to use that as one of the example threads in my previous post, but I hadn't been able to find it. I had been  wondering why you had asked your question in that thread, but the thread was closed before I could ask you that.

I asked because i wanted to familiarize myself to the rules of the website, i had been telling people requesting to remove credits that they couldn’t, i just wanted to make sure i was telling them the correct information

Jasey and Allen.
One in the same.
Please stop this.
Extrapolating the reason for this charade. You will not find a different answer, no matter how many names you create.
IMDb staff closed the last thread to comments.

Thanks.
