Hi Vijay,

Usually, the automated display of alternative names stems from existing credits with (as ...) attribute. Correcting the entry should automatically update the display of alternative name.

Could you share the link to your name page, so contributors here can figure out?

That's because the credit is correct. There was an animator named vijayaraj, it just isn't you. So, you can't delete the credit. You need to correct it to a new person which I've done for you.

Have you ever been an animator / storyboard artist ?

This looks like your only animation credit and I'm guessing it is a mistake. This credit probably needs to move to a new person's page. If you can confirm you've never worked as an animator, I will move this credit for your and when it's move, it should get rid of the alternate name.

I presume the 'writer' credits should go the same way if the person's career is only actor.
It's a common mistake to grant the storyboard artists with 'writer' or similar credits.

I put in the edit to move the credit to a new person named vijayaraj (There's an existing vijayaraj but he/she's a cinematographer and that seems unlikely they did animation.

Hi Vijay -

I can see that the credit has now been moved to a separate page and the Alternate Name is no longer displayed on your page.  Cheers!

Well, this is odd. It got corrected but my correction was declined.
