I cannot delete a Title from my IMDb page. It says 'Unable to verify your contribution'.
What the heck does that mean? Why is it so hard to delete a title from my own page?

Chris: Very often, when someone tries to delete a credit from their page, it would be more appropriate to re-assign the credit to a different person with the same name. There are currently 2 different people listed in the database named Chris Kirshbaum (see https://www.imdb.com/find?ref_=nv_sr_fn&q=chris+kirshbaum&s=all), and for all I know, the credit you are referring to could belong to the other person, or to yet a third person who is not listed in IMDb yet.

So my questions are:
  1. Which Chris Kirshbaum are you -- (I) or (II)?
  2. Which credit are you trying to have removed from your page?
  3. Is it possible for you to find the title, look up the credits, and see whether there is someone with the same name as you credited for that job?

Thanks for getting back to me on this.
I'm actually both, but the credit in this case is for Chris Kirshbaum I, visual effects. The credit I'd like to remove is Avengers: Infinity War. I did work on that project, but only briefly, and it is not an accurate reflection of what I actually do. Thanks very much!
Best regards,
Chris

The credit is not eligible for deletion, sorry.  Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/i-tried-to-delete-data-but-it-still-appears-on-imdb-why/GBC4F3QWUTSVFV3B

However, you can remove it from your "Known For" section and choose a more representative title instead, please see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdbpro/manage-your-imdb-page/manage-your-filmography/GH8XTYSWKU2P96TA?ref_=helpsrall#howtoedit (or visit https://pro.imdb.com/known_for directly).
