I would like my name removed from plot summary

I wrote a few plot summaries back in college (late-nineties/early 2000s) for some slasher-type films. How can I get my name and old college email removed from the byline? I've tried the correction form on the IMDB page, tried setting the name to "anonymous", is there any way to accomplish this? Thanks for the help!

Hello Alexander,
What’s the submission reference for when you tried to change it? The reference number gives the date in the first 6 characters.

Hi Steve, thanks for the reply. Here's one of the reference numbers: #190613 

So I tried to change it yesterday -- most recently. I'm assuming that's June 13, 2019.

I've tried dozens of combinations and passwords. No luck. Is there any way to associate my old profile with my new? Is there any way to make contact with higher-ups at IMDB/Amazon? Happy to keep the review up for clarity, but just want my name disassociated. They're two pretty obscure movies, but I hate that they show up in search results all the time. Would upgrading to IMDBpro help in any capacity?

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for reaching out about this! I took a look and submitted these corrections on your behalf; they should be live on the site within 24 hours.

Cheers!

Hi Michelle, hijacking this thread as it appears you are the deletion/correction expert! I wrote a few Plot Summaries 20 years ago when I was in college. I've tried editing and submitting multiple corrections, but there doesn't seem to be any way to remove my name from the summary. I no longer have access to my old college email and I can't recover the password. Is there any way to remove my byline from these plot summaries? I'm not in the film industry, the films are pretty obscure... but my name keeps showing up in search results next to these dubious movies. I'm just at a total loss and really appreciate any guidance you can provide. Thanks!
