Hi, on the title "Loserville" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3469432/?...) we really need Sonny Lee's name to be removed as a writer. We've made several requests to have it removed and it's now causing us problems. I would be very grateful if it could be removed ASAP. Thanks so much for the help, it really is greatly appreciated!

Best,
Chris

Did you submit a request to edit the page?  If so, can you post the submission ID number so staff can check on it?

If not, can you do so first, then post the submission ID number.

If you've first asked them to add the credit, vouching for the validity, you'll need to give a good explanation to now vouch it is no longer valid.

Changes don't get made based on a post here.  They must be done on the online forms (click "edit page" on the title's page and fill in the form).

Deletions are difficult to get so you might need to include good evidence, like the on screen credits showing the writers (with his name missing).

Yes, I already submitted the deletion request on the page three times on the basis that he's no longer involved with the film and we need the credit removed. Here's the reference number for the latest request: 141001-223555-467000, and then here it is for the request before that: 140925-042915-441000. I think I deleted the requests that date back before that.

One problem might be, you keep re-submitting it.  It's better to wait and see if it gets accepted or rejected first, then ask here for staff to check on it.

Submissions take between 1 and 14 business days to process.  You sent one, then another 5 business days later. If one is processing and another comes in, it slows the process greatly.  They need to compare them and figure out if there's a different issue going on or they are the same, etc. It kind of pulls you out of queue.

They might have suspended it until it can be verified, by on screen credit roll, etc.

But, only the most recent is needed (unless something changed between them), so:

Staff:  Can you check status on 141001-223555-467000
