Hi,

There are wrong credits on my imdb page (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6895839/) They belong to another person (second unit director) with same name with me. I work as a VFX artist.

I tried to name split, but rejected 200305-055159-949000 Then tried to transfer it to a new page (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm11399064/) but again declined 200309-174723-856000  I was asked for proof. But how can I prove it by screengrabbing, we share the same name.

Thanks for your help.

Engin.
Hi.
You are asking IMDb to believe that there are two people with an unusual name such as yours that just happen to have the same professions? I'm sorry but that does not sound believable.
If you did manage to split the credits, your name pages would in all likelihood be merged anyway. Some contributor would put 2 & 2 together and concluded that those were one in the same person.

I doubt IMDb staff is going to believe your story. The declined submissions are proof of their disbelief.

This is IMDb Policy

I tried to delete data, but it still appears on IMDb. Why?
https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/i-tried-to-delete-data-but-it-st...#

IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records. If you notice an error or omission in our data, please submit a correction or deletion via the "Edit page" button located at the bottom of every name and title page and our staff will be happy to review it and make all applicable changes. We have a guide to adding data here.

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.


Please wait for a reply from staff.
I would not get your hopes up on a reversal.
They are likely to respond that they believe the data to be true and factual.

Cheers
Good Luck

We have not same profession. I work on post production (VFX), he works on production (second unit director). I have only one credit. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3698408/ Worked as a Vfx artist on this film. The other credits don't belong to me.

I can share my linkedin profile as a proof that I worked on the post production company of this movie at that time, year 2014. https://www.linkedin.com/in/engin-akdeniz-31a9688b/ 

On this site https://www.tsa.org.tr/tr/film/filmgoster/7842/pek-yakinda , you can see 1000 volt as the post production company of the movie.
And  this is the screenshot from the movie. 1000 volt can be seen as the post production company.

And also Engin is a common name in Turkish. Akdeniz means Mediterranean Sea also in Turkish. So unfortunately my name is not an unusual name in Turkish language.

Apologies for the reply by Appraiser1. He trolls me specifically. I am sorry for his behavior. Wish he'd let it go.

I am actually here to help no matter what he says.
If your single credit is the only issue, then corroborating evidence would help you get that credit.
This time resubmit (New Contribution) the transfer of the credit but provide a call sheet and pay stubs, along with any other forms of proof in the box that says "Provide an explanation here to aid in processing". You can take photo images and upload them on to a file sharing service, then put the assigned URL in the explanation box for IMDb editors to review. That will help them in recognizing your credit as not belonging to the other individual with the same name.

You could also post those call sheet images here along with the pays stubs and IMDb could make a determination based on that info right now. That is as soon as the finally see this here later today or tomorrow.
I would not recommend that, unless you redact the sensitive personal information off of the forms.
If you'd rather not then make the re-submission as suggested.

You are on thin ice. Your reply was removed by staff. If you continue on this path I'm sure that they will do more than remove your replies. (Trust me on that!)
