I recently submitted a woman named Emily Jerome for an "additional writing by credit" for our movie "The Runner". we were hoping she'd be in the Miscellaneous crew section. She's now on the front page for "The Runner" in front of the movies's actual writer. When i go to edit Writing credits and click "Delete/change" title, her credit isn't even showing up so I can't take it down. I need it taken down ASAP because the movie just started getting a lot of press and her credit right now is completely misleading. PLEASE HELP! THANKS!!

If it's newly listed, since the edit forms take an extra day or two to update, you'll need to wait to make edits.

Is she listed in the on screen credits or not? If the credit is accurate, it should not be removed. You'll probably have to add a screen shot proving it's inaccurate. Your submissions should always accurately reflect the on screen credits.

It's not an on screen credit, it was supposed to be under Miscellaneous and I submitted it like 4 days ago. At this point, I just want it removed

If it's not credited on screen, why did you add it as though it was? You should not be adding credits that don't exist. IMDb documents on screen credits.

If you have, in effect, told IMDb this credit exists and now are saying it does not, which version should they believe?

Can you provide screen captures of the writing credits appearing on screen as proof the credit does not exist? It might get removed but might simply be changed to include a note that it was "uncredited."

To avoid this in the future, please don't add false information and keep in mind that adding a name to the cast/crew list you're saying the name appears in the credits of the film/show.

Here's the link, she comes up right at the top as "contributing writer"

You'll need to, for starters, wait for the edit form to update to show the credit. Then since you've, in effect, claimed the credit exists then reversed the claim, you'll likely need to show evidence that it does not exist and explain what happened. The result might be having an "(uncredited)" attribute added (which I think will, at least, put it beneath the other writing credit). Best evidence would be screen capture of the writing credits as they appear on screen.
