This project was posted on imdb as a feature film wrongly, when its a 10 minute short film.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt8069474/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_3

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijShSEuzFxA - 5 min preview of the project

Submitting title correction doesn't work. the project was a total 10 minutes long.

I tried to submit title correction and wouldnt allow it.

In the Genre category, add the term Short. When you go to the Update Information page, Genre is in the Plot & Quotes section.

Give at least 2-3 days for processing.

Actually now i have another problem, i submitted this project:

180326-043739-557000  to imdb, was shot by a production company.

link to preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUaPrWyuUZk&t=60s

I added the actress and director but imdb did not add my name onto it.
this link verifies a preview of that its in fact a project, both of us were in it, imdb wont let me add my name, wont at all.

what am i supposed to do?

If the title is listed on IMDb, go to the title's main page, click the Edit page button, go to the specific category you will eventually be credited for and type the name in the form. 

If the title is not currently listed on IMDb, give at least a few days for the project to appear on all IMDb servers. 

I'm assuming that there is an IMDb filmography page listed with your name. Make sure you type the name as listed. To save some steps, consider typing the name this way:

Last name(s), First name

Please write back if you are still having issues submitting the update.

thank you for the help, I added an updare to add episode 1 because right now every time i try to add my name, it shows this:

This credit has been rejected. You need to correct this credit before it will be accepted.
  • This credit should be added to specific episodes.
    If that is not possible, please add a year range to the Character field. E.g.
    (1966) or
    (1966-1968)
    But, once again, adding the credit to specific episode(s) is by far the preferred form.

    The easiest way to do this is from the episode title page, not from a name page.

will this work? keeps rejecting me.

For any new series titles, initially, it's best to add as much data as possible before adding any episode pages.

Once the series title's main page has been processed, any new data will need to be added to specific episode pages. 

Thanks for the additional information. As noted, please write back if you are having any more issues with the submissions.

MC: See the Processing Times page at https://contribute.imdb.com/times.

Cast credits are backlogged to March 20, and crew credits are backlogged to March 25. If you have a cast credit that you submitted and which has not been accepted yet, wait a few days until the Processing Times page indicates that the oldest item not yet processed is from after your data submission date.

(The fact that other credits you submitted at the same time have been accepted already does not necessarily indicate anything about why your credit has been delayed. The IMDb staff does not necessarily process all data in order of submission.)

Hi MC,

I've accepted your character name edit on Journey but for Weight Management was this title released in 2013? If so please can you provide a copy of the film and we can take a look?

Regards,
Will

Will, yes this this project was privately screened for TCD and friends back in 2013, informed Michael i would be adding it on, was an independent project by them, they invited me to be part of it but i did play the Receptionist, you are welcome to contact Mike at TCD Studios who invited me to be part of this and confirm.

This was a short video project they shot about training and ridiculous characters at the gym.

i would ask please verify with TCD and please add my name to the project, they will verify.

Hi MC,

As you added the title it is on you to provide evidence that it exists and a copy of the end credits. In light of this the title has now been removed from the site until this evidence can be provided.

Thank you for understanding.

Unfortunately, we are unable to review e-mail's as evidence for credit changes.  If you have already requested the removal of the credit through our online form and the change has not been approved, we will need to see further evidence to verify the cast list for the title (such as a screen shot of the film credits).  If you have further evidence, you are welcome to post any screen grabs here and our staff can take another look.

Hi MC,

You are trying to remove an (uncredited) credit on this title therefore a copy of the screen credits in this case do not apply. Given the submission history of this credit we will not be removing this from your page. If you wish to discuss this further please do so here.

Regards,
Will

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Removing false credit and presenting proof.

In the past i tried to have this removed but no luck, i was never part of this production, anybody watches this episode see that i dont exist, never auditioned, never acted never had any participation in it, neither as an actor or an extra, anybody watches the episode in full and there is no trace of me. 

It would have been amazing to have a massive TV credit but its completely false and wrong, its a lie.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1517315/reference

180425-060710-384000 - contribution number

There is no such character with the name of grayson, in what form do i need to present proof in order for imdb to really understand this credit is false and it doesnt exist.

What do i have to present to imdb, screen shots of ending credits to prove that?

please someone help
