Everything I ever worked on is missing or gone. My account even says "IMDb
Member 6 years" ...That is way off.
I signed up early 2000's.I'm pretty sure I've been a member for over 18 years.
I desperately need your help. Is there a way you can call me?

When you say "credits", do you mean badges?
Might you have logged into an alternate account?

My watchlist, ratings and setting are gone. What happened?
Don't panic, chances are your data is still there. This can generally happen if you logged into the wrong IMDb account.
When you add titles to your Watchlist, vote or review, this is associated with the IMDb account you're logged into. If, for any reason, you create and log into a different account, all this information won't be there. A second IMDb account can be created by accident when you may have an existing account, but then log into IMDb using a different login method (i.e. Amazon, Facebook, or Google). When you login using these other methods, it will create a new IMDb account with your login credentials.
To view this information, you'll need to log out of IMDb and log in again using the same email and password for the IMDb account where you created lists or rated titles.

By "credits" I meant the movies and shows I've worked on. I've changed my email 3 times since I've been here. But, I always changed it on my account.
Is there a way to look at my other 2 emails to look up my profile?

I was the First "Shamu" here.
If it helps - I've worked on Lost Boys - Dead Heat - Dantes Peak in FX
And in sound - I've worked on Dawsons Creek, Nash Bridges and many many more.

Confusion here...
 
This is your User Name - Profile page
 
shamu411
https://www.imdb.com/user/ur44109370
IMDb member since June 2013 : IMDb Member 6 years
  
You said to be a member for over 18 years.
That would be a different User Name
That you used to enter your Credits for

Ed Jones (XLIX) did not add a link to your Name Page for credits ??

Are you missing Credits ? ?
or something from your User Profile page like
Ratings - Lists - Watchlist - Checkins - Reviews - Poll Responses ??

Hi Shamu, Please know that a user profile page is not your filmography name page on IMDb.  You can edit your name page at any time through the "edit page" button at the bottom. There is no association between your personal user profile, and your official name page. You can claim your name page with an IMDbPro membership, however.

Shamu, there never was any e-mail address attached to your name page. It just exists independent of any e-mail address unless you have IMDb Pro. Then an e-mail address would be attached!
Cheers./......

Hi Ed. That's horrible. I remember being able to see my link and etc on my profile.
Are you saying strangers can modify my page?

Yes, it's been that way ever since the beginning. You were a registered user. You had a user handle way back. That went to a user number later. They were and are attached to an e-mail address. This allowed your to modify your page or anybody elses' page or title pages.
That way people can keep your page up to date with out your input.

Yeah...that's the problem I had a few years back.
There was a guy from India that kept adding stuff that didn't pertain to me.
It took me three months to correct it again.
However, I always thought it was a hack, not someone that was allowed.
Now I know -
