yes they are, if you watch the projects i was never part of them, never worked on those projects. i have submitted to imdb 5 or 6 times and they just wont delete them.

I see that some of those are credited "as Mannie Sousa."  Is this a valid AKA for you or is it likely that is a different person?  If it's a different person, correcting the credit rather than deleting it would be the way to go.  Have you worked under, or been credited as, that name?

the thing is mannie sousa was my old name, but i changed it a while ago, in fact i changed it after my manager left me. i did very much indeed exactly what you just recommended, submitting them to correct and give it to someone else.

but they are not mine, i have no idea what else to do, i mean how to i delete them.

Mr. De Castro:

It would not be appropriate to discuss this matter in a public forum, since the reason why these credits are listed and have not been deleted is likely to originate from and/or be based on information or statements that have been supplied when submitting these entries or in subsequent communications with our support staff. 

I would recommend you contact us directly so we can discuss this matter privately and avoid disclosing details that are probably not appropriate for public disclosure.

Mannie, the post you've just responded to IS from an employee of IMDb. Henry is giving you an opportunity to discuss the deletions in a private setting. My suggestion is that you take him up on his offer.

Mannie,

re:

Henry did not say that anything you said is inappropriate. What he said is, you need to contact the staff directly as there is information within previous submissions not suited for discussion on public message boards.

As the main page says:

Note: this is a public forum: anything posted here will be visible to everyone.

For billing/payment issues, visit http://www.imdb.com/bill
For issues regarding accounts or questions involving non-public information, please log into your IMDb.com account and contact our support staff privately via this form.
Please seek assistance from staff.  No other users are likely to get involved based on Henry's post.

I realize you're anxious but seriously, you need to relax, take a breath and send a message to staff via the form linked above. The site has 100 million visits per month and lists 6 million plus people who are also trying to get their credits listed, corrected, removed, etc.  Sometimes you simply have to wait in line. Repeating over and over that you would like assistance won't change that.

Good luck!

(and to answer your question above, no, I am not staff.  They have  "employee" or "official rep" on their name tag...as Henry does)

I might sound anxious and Iom i have been trying to remove these credits for almost 3 months and no response, suddenly one imdb person responds but then nothing, i have submitted the references and id numbers to imdb, three messages and no response.

how can someone take care of this without responses....impossible really.

It sounds like they either are not going to change it at all, or they need some clarification before going forward, per Henry's response.

When you say, (many times) that you've received "no response," what that should read is, "no response yet."  You'll simply need to wait for them to get to you.

There is no other magic way to get things changed without staff involvement.  All submissions are taken by, processed by and either verified and approved or rejected.  That's just the way it is. No data moves without staff "response."
