This happens now and then. Staff will need to correct it. They don't come by a lot on weekends so you might have to wait for attention a day or two.

In the mean time, I submitted a request to remove it by clicking "edit page" and choosing "miscellaneous correction" which allows a message to the page editors explaining the needed correction.

If staff wants to take a look at my submission, it's 150927-204454-969000

This is a strange situation... Interrogante

It seems that the aka comes from two titles ("I Hope..." and "Imaginary Friend") that appeared listed in former versions of Marcello Daciano's page:


Those two titles of course had their IMDb pages as well, at least until 06/18/2010 and 01/30/2015 respectively:
  • I Hope... (2001) (tt0305659): In this case the aka Mihai Mihalache somehow disappeared between 03/23/2004 and 06/18/2010...


  • Imaginary Friend (2006/II) (tt0758040):


The weird thing is that those two titles have completely vanished from IMDb! despite one of them even had a link to the full movie (see above) and the other one is still indexed in the production company's catalogue:


Ergo, the two questions I'm wondering are:
  1. Do those two films actually exist? (I would say that at least "I hope..." does)
  2. If they exist, for which reason IMDb considered them ineligible and, thus, were removed from the database? SudorSudor

I Agree 100%! I Hope was and Romania/Italy submission for Oscars 2002 (Short-films Category) so if that doesn't validates it and dozens of other websites including film catalogs and Newspaper clips i don't know what else.  In regard with the name - My original page was created by a nice lady at the Italian Cultural Institute in 2002 based on a list that from the look of it had names mixed up with the editor. since then i tried to take id of but it follows me like a bad penny. 
So:
1. Can this name finally be taking off?
2. How can I get my Titles back on IMDB?

Many many thanks for all the help to you all. 
Ciao
M

Ps - How can i access those old versions of my Imdb pages?

You'd have to re-submit them (this page, How do I add a new title? ends with a link to the new title form). You might want to see if you can find the best sites that mention them, as the form will ask for those sites for verification. If nothing else, perhaps a link to this thread, with the screen shot above, that shows they were accepted before and that the one actually had a link to view it (which means it was, obviously, available to the public-a requirement of eligibility). If you have copies of them, screen shots of the credits would help verify that it exists and that the credits are being submitted correctly. It sounds like it might be easy to get them listed (mystery is, where'd they go???...but maybe we'll never know).

Semi-Off-Topic  (the following is not IMDb-related):

Mr. Daciano:
BTW you may also want to check some information on a Romanian film-data site linked below, and contact them if corrections may be needed there.  In the Biography text found there, both names are mentioned.  The bio text also claims some additional credits that are not listed on IMDb.

(After that page fully loads, click the "more" link below the bio and some further text should appear.)

Thank you. i know abut that too. but they pick up info from imbd. bc that website is a "imdb-like" for Romania. and without feeling disrespectful for the cinemagia.ro site - it dosen't weight as much for the people in the industry here in US who checks IMDB daily. as most of us do ;)
many thanks again sir.

Hi Marcello -

Just chiming in here to confirm that our staff are reviewing the Alternative Name listing on your page, for the initial removal you requested.
