An unflattering user poll keeps popping up on my page with unnatural frequency. How do I combat this?

Hi B. woodbine -

Please note that User Polls will automatically display on your IMDb filmography page if you or a character you played is listed within an existing poll.

Thanks for the response! Does this mean if someone pulls up a particular poll or looks at it they can actually Cause it to appear on my page. If that's the case all one needs do is keep pulling it up thereby causing it to appear. Is that correct?

Hi,

Just to clarify, the poll will only be displayed on your IMDb page if your name (or the name of a character you played) is listed within the Poll.  So, let's say I create a new poll titled  "Best Actors" and I list you as one of the names within my poll, once that poll is published,  because you are referenced within the poll it will automatically display on your page, as well as on the pages for the other individuals listed within that poll.

Does that help clarify?

How do I get myself OFF this poll? Some random character name that had nothing to do with my performances and it is unflattering?!

I assume it is there because you played "Posh Spice" in 2001 Casualty (TV Series) .
The poll includes Victoria Beckham who has the same character page as "Posh Spice". Polls automatically associate and show up on related titles and character/actor pages. There is no way to get rid of it unless the poll itself is removed.

That is actually not my credit, another thing I have been trying unsuccessfully to fix! That is another Heidi james and the clip of Razor Blade smile which I can't get rid of is hers too!:(

Then if you fix that credit the poll should go away. I would suggest going to the titles pages for both of those clicking "edit page" at the bottom and then "Cast"  and "Correct cast" and changing the Heidi James to another Heidi James.
