Hi Chris -

In order for our staff to help, can you confirm what page and data you are trying to update and provide the most recent submission reference numbers associated with your updates?

Remember that you can't delete "old work". You can (and you should) correct/edit/update, but IMDb won't remove factual information - old or new.

You probably need to explain a bit more what you mean by "old work" and what was deleted previously. My point was that IMDB won't delete factual info. It's not a resume/CV service where you can choose what "work" are added and what should be removed from the name page.


In any case, see the post from Michelle. Submission reference numbers (from your Update history) is needed so that IMDb could investigate. Re-submitting the same info repeatedly doesn't really help.

Please see http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?datanotdeleted and specifically

However, IMDb will not remove accurate information. If you try to delete an item of data which is accurate, your delete will not be processed. Please be aware that attempts to delete accurate data will count against your overall accuracy rating and may result in all your submissions taking longer to process along with additional proof requirements.

I want all uncredited work removed. It is hurting my chances at speaking roles. Plus, I've been told by multiple people in the industry, uncredited work does not belong on IMDB.

I'm affaid your industry friends (who are not running or maintaining IMDb, btw) doesn't paint the full picture. There are many famous actors and filmmakers who has also unctedited work in their filmography.

"The decision to display uncredited/unbilled credits is made on a case-by-case basis and there are several factors that may influence our choice."

http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?un...

One additional tip: don't start multiple threads about this. It doesn't help your case. IMDb will investigate these credits in due course.
