On April 9 2019, I had asked for about 19 credits to be deleted from my profile, but only some were being deleted not all I had asked for? The main reason why I wanted those credits to be removed from my profile is because my name is not on the end credits at all. So, it's not factual. So it's not important anyway to keep those films on my profile. They didn't add me. Simply because they didn't want to. I added myself. So since I added myself, I think I can delete myself from those films as well. They didn't want to add me in the first place. Therefore it is fair that my name is being deleted from those films.

Could someone please look into this? Contribution #190403-190801-497000

I thank you in advance.

Kind regards,
Buppha

Hi, Buppha Witt. You added false information to IMDb?

Please provide screenshots of the titles billing credits to prove that you were not in them or list those titles and some of us here may do the research for those phantom credits.
Thanks

My contribution is being declined for 13 credits that I wanted to be removed from my IMDb profile because of IMDb is unable to verify my contribution?! I don't understand. But some of them have already been deleted without any issue. So how do I contact IMDb to ask it to remove the unwanted credits?

The titles I wish to be removed from my profile are:

Collateral" (2018) {(#1.3)} - Immigrant
Collateral" (2018) {(#1.4)} - Immigrant
A Guide to Second Date Sex (????) - Bar Staff
Benjamin (2018/II) - Asian Chef
Hampstead (2017) - Posh Lady
How to Stop Being a Loser (2011) - Clubgoer
Hyenas (2011) - Clubgoer (uncredited)
Kinamand (2005) - Party Guest
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) - Passerby (uncredited)
Submarino (2010) - Restaurant Guest
The Anomaly (2014) - Supporting (uncredited)
The Death and Life of John F. Donovan (2018) - Market Crowd
Who's Deal? (2008) - Clubgoer

Kind regards,
Buppha

It says more evidence required. Screenshots of end credits from the titles in question will be needed or those credits will remain.

But I do have the confirmation emails from IMDb when I added those credits myself. Can I use it as evidence then?

I was in those films, but they didn't give me credits and my name is not on-screen credits either. So why can't I delete those films? But some of the films I have asked to be removed are being deleted, but not the remaining?

Now you try to say that this information was added under false pretences? Those films that were being deleted per my request my name is not on-screen credits either, so do the remaining films that I wish to be removed as well. So, what's the difference? Why IMDb did remove only some of them, not all, when they share the same thing which is that my name is not on-screen credits?

Please do not make it complicated when it's not needed. Thanks.

Why those credits that were being removed now being added back again? Just because I said I was in them? Why I can't remove the films that my name is not on-screen credits? I'm very disappointed by this. Should I create a new page then and discontinue a membership of this current page?

Hi, Buppha:
I was in those films, but they didn't give me credits
If you indeed appeared in those films, then those titles are eligible to be listed in your page with the (uncredited) attribute, and won't be removed from the database.
Why IMDb did remove only some of them, not all, when they share the same thing which is that my name is not on-screen credits?
In the light of your above words, IMDb might even consider reinstating the deleted entries, so it's actually a bit more complicated than it seems.

Hi Buppha,

As you have confirmed these credits are factual, I have re-instated them all now. 

If you were not credited in the end title sequence, please submit the additional attribute of (uncredited) to reflect that. 

Please remember, we do not remove factual information from the database - attempts to do so will result in those submissions being rejected.

Thanks for understanding. 

Joel
