I listed a background credit when I was just starting out like so many others and I deeply regret it. I have been trying to have it removed for 2 years. Is there someone who can help me? I've had other background credits removed before but despite my efforts I am still being told that IMDb believes it is factual and will not remove it. Please, I am begging someone to assist me.

Is it a factual credit? If so, IMDb will not remove it.

There’s no need to e-mail any non-IMDb staff. That doesn’t help. If you need to ask questions privately, use the IMDb help desk:
