Last time this community helped me a lot, so I am reaching out again.
IMDb keeps declining my change in credits.

I need to change credit for my profile Iva Sindelková 

Namely credit for The Aftermath

and to replace it with "British HQ secretary".

Would appreciate it very much.

Thank you in advance and kind regards.

Hi Iva. Can you provide a clear screenshot of yourself in the film acting as a secretary?
You are listed "uncredited" as a passerby. Your call sheet might say British HQ secretary, but IMDb rules state that in an uncredited role you are described by your actions in a scene.

So a screenshot of you sitting at a desk being a secretary or any action that would look like a secretary in the performance of being as such will work. If the action in the scene makes this clearer then a still frame shot, then a URL of the scene in question will help too.

Need more.
Just ask.
Cheers

Hi Iva. In order to confirm this, a URL to a viewing is required. Amazon prime will work or any URL that is viewable for free. IMDb will need confirmation to approve. They do not view movies that require a purchase.
Thanks for replying so quick.

We Have a problem.
It is on HBO. A pay service.
Problem 2.
You have no uploaded image on your name page.
There is no way to make a comparison even if they could view it.

Wowwww.... OK, first - there are no problems :) I can send screenshot, my costume photo and my real photo -  I just need to know where... funnily enough there is no option to place screenshot when one initially fills in the IMDb form (duhhhh)...... and there is no option to privately send messages - not all internet needs to see the details :-P  Lastly - I do not have IMDbPro hence no profile picture but I do have 2 showreels of me there which can also work as doublecheck (second duhhhh). 
Thank you for all your effort, comments and help :)  ! 

Iv.

Hi Iva, 

You can submit a correction using the 'edit page' button at the bottom of your name page and selecting 'correct/delete' from the dropdown next to actress credits and then 'continue'.

On the following page, select 'correct' from the dropdown next to the credit you wish to amend and check the update.  There will also be a check box to 'provide an explanation to assist in processing the submission' - if you wish to provide any evidence or further information that will assist our data editors, please check this box. You will then see the option to change the character name.  Please update the name and check the updates, if there are no issues you should see the option to submit to our data editors. 

Our data editors will then be able to review your submission. If this is not approved it means our data editors will require additional information or evidence in order to modify the character name. 

Thanks
Meredith

Thank you for your message. I did that like three times now.... still declined... *angry face* Is there any chance just to make the said change - I provided the evidence  needed, I do not see any reason why IMDb could not make the change....

Nevermind, I am "working on a workaround" i.e. deleting my credit and placing new one instead.... will see how IMDb will be helpful this way.... At the moment IMDb ́s userfriendliness on a scale 1-10  is basically .... ZERO

That will be declined as well. It is no work around "That Works"
People come here complaining all the time that they cannot remove a valid credits.
Your credit IS valid. So it will not be deleted.
You MUST work within the confines of rules and policies set by IMDb.
