Error in Credits... & I can't get IMDb to correct????

There is an error on the credits listed for SymbioPsychotaxiplasm - Take One. It is listed as William Greaves - Producer. It does not list Manuel Melamed - Co Producer. (Bill Greaves own website & the packaging, credit is given to Manuel Melamed - http://www.williamgreaves.com/symbio_...)
I have requested the correction twice, but it has not been done.
the person listed as assoc producer - Manny Meland - is not the same person. that is someone else.
I know because Manuel Melamed is my father, and was very proud of his work with Mr Greaves. My Father has since passed away, & I would greatly appreciate giving him the credit due.
Thanks you

Sorry to hear about your Dad.

I have requested the correction twice, but it has not been done.


When did you submit the changes? There are backlogs in processing the data, so it might take a while for this to be accepted. If you submit before it has been accepted or rejected you might be resetting the clock and so it will take longer.

If it has been more than a month or so and/or if it has been rejected then there might have been a problem with the submission. If so you can copy and paste it in here and someone will take a look at it.

submission # 121210-222035-401000
I am trying to add Manuel Melamed Co Producer to Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One (1968)
It was originally submitted in December of 2012.
I have documentation as proof - William Greaves website - list of credits - http://www.williamgreaves.com/symbio_...
The box itself shows credit to my father - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...

I think there may be some confusion as there is a Manny Meland listed as assoc producer - that is not my father - no idea if that's the problem

My father, worked with Bill was Co Producer & his correct name is Manuel Melamed.
Is there anyway to help me correct this information? as I mentioned, my dad has passed, and he was very proud of this piece of work, I would appreciate any help in getting the info corrected on IMDB.
Thank you for your time..

The question may not be who did this job, but rather how it was displayed on screen when the film was first released.

With Manny being a nickname for Manuel and given the similarity between Meland and Melamed, I wonder if the current IMDb list refers to your father.

There are several possibilities:
1) he used a pseudonym for his 'credits name',
2) he was mis-credited on screen due to a typo,
3) he was listed as Manny Melamed on screen and an error was made entering it into the IMDb form
4) he was listed under his full name on screen, but it was not correctly copied to IMDb.

Given that Manny Meland's name is so close to your father's, that the site you linked does not include that name in the credits, and that he only has the one credit, I think that there is a very high chance that this is meant to be your father.

If you could contact the site they might confirm that no such person worked on the project, which would confirm this page is meant for your father. If they could also confirm the exact form of the on-screen credit (or even better, supply a screen cap of it), you should be able to get your father properly credited.

I think IMDb may have the same concerns I have about the current name, so it may be easier to update it than to create the new page.

My father, Manuel Melamed is listed on screen as the co producer with William Greaves. There is no aka ..

The other credit is also listed. I can only assume someone mistakenly thought it was duplicating, but it is not, it is 2 different people, 2 different credits.

Emperor provided the link for documentation, I filed the information, & hope that will take care of it.

Thanks for trying to assist.
