Credits Categorized Incorrectly

My credits have fallen into three different categories: Visual Effects, Animation Department, and Art Department. A large number of these credits have fallen into the incorrect category. Is there a way to correct these categories myself? I don't see a relevant option when I go to correct/delete a credit.

Also, is there a way to make these changes in large batches? There are quite a few that will be time consuming to move one at a time.

Consider the following path.

Step #1: Submit the credits to the correct categories through the series title's main IMDb page. 
Check the link below for instructions.
How do I add an episodic credit? - Adding credits for multiple episodes

Step #2: After the submissions have been completed, submit deletions of the duplicates through the name page. On a few of the deletions requests, make sure to click the checkbox to the left of Provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission. Write a brief message for the IMDb editors indicating that the credit is a duplicate and was previously submitted to the wrong category.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you need some assistance.

I have used this method in several instances, and it has worked... mostly. Unfortunately, one edit to 39 credits of a single show has been declined twice now, just stating "We have been unable to verify your contribution." The first time, I was told I had an opportunity to provide evidence, which I did. I was still declined. This is very frustrating. Do I have any other recourse?

Post the declined submission number with your explanation in a new thread (they may not visit this one as it's marked solved) or directly at https://help.imdb.com/contact and staff will take a look at it and give you feedback or put it through if it is valid as is.
