Locking my imdb profile so no one else can make an edit except me

How do I lock my imdb page so no one edits it?

Someone edited my BIO and all my project credits to assistant or uncredited (maybe my competition who is trying to make a bad name for me).

Is there a way to lock it so no one edits it?

Thanks!

Hi lukasispenn -

In order to be as comprehensive and current as possible, we cannot restrict updates for a specific name page to a single source or reject further changes. 

If the recent changes made to your page were incorrect, you should submit the applicable corrections/updates and and our editors will take a look.  Additionally, to help prevent any further errors I encourage you to include any evidence links to help verify your changes (such as screen grabs of the on-screen credits confirming your role).  Otherwise, for specific details on how to correct your mini-Bio I encourage you to review our Help Guide.

If the data has been corrected and is again incorrect modified, let us know and we can investigate further for sabotage.

Cheers!

@Michelle 

Can you please respond or see to it that this post or this user gets taken down? He keeps adding my public name and changing things. He has named called me as well.

@Michelle  I just want nothing to do with Guy Manly Films. Or any association. Please take the post down. I do have my lawyer looking at this stuff.

@Michelle 

Here is proof of Gilmer's work. He has altered a Festival's page and does this stuff. I don't know how this is legal that IMDB will allow someone to alter things.  He has done this to other film communities and is now reaching out to my lawyer.  The festival doesn't have a tv show. He did this for another festival as well. 

Is there a way to ban Ryan J Gilmer from me personally on IMDB? To block him from altering things?

@directorjkyoung I didn’t add that. Stop lying where is your evidence it was me? See @Michelle @imdb  this is what @directorjkyoung does. I have even tried to delete those fake tcff things and even told the fest about them

my former credits in them are actually not valid but I have submitted deletion after deletion on those stupid bogus festival ones and bot all my deletions went though. Check the history

@ryan_j_gilmer Sure you have. Ryan. We're supposed to sit here and believe that you didn't reach out to TCFF and let them know about it? Why didn't you take my credits off then if you really reached out to them??? I don't believe you. 

You have made no such attempt Ryan. You did this for Z-fest also because you got banned from both festivals. You have some vendetta against them because they sensor your films. You stuffed the ballot boxe at TCFF. I am not the one lying here. 

Everyone in our community knows its use. You did the same to Chase. Altering credits because you are mad at the Director that they won't let you be in their film. 

Ryan picks on other filmmakers and thinks that he has power he does not have power on me trust me.

He tries to take control of other films. 

I have evidence from what people tell me. My lawyer showed me proof you contacted her.

What do you mean 400 credits?

what does my credits have to do with submitting to delete a title I never added

i told @imdb @Michelle multiple times I was working during the. Lock party and could not be there

i send a direct message to bill and the tcff

i sent a direct message to the orchestral score fest where my films won best score by the way.

so again I don’t want bogus credits but you are trying to delete all my credits not just bogus ones that I didn’t even add and have tried to delete

@ryan_j_gilmer  I just want you to stop. Just leave me alone stop altering my stuff. Stop altering YouTube. I will have my own version of Jackpot. Because you add fake credits also and you lie you make yourself look like the victim on all of your posts on FB. you posted my phone number even when you called me in a voice mail which i still have by the way irratcally. That's beyond harassment to me when someone wants nothing to do you with you you still attempt.

@directorjkyoung the version of jackpot you have up still has me in it

you refuse to show me a signed release and you continue to lie about the project

Edit me out as you claim

also

note I never edited the film

all the credits in the film were added by you so no fake credits

oh course you claiming it was a student film and your directorial debut is a flat out lie as shown by your IMDb credits or are all of @directorjkyoung s credits fake @Michelle @imdb

@Michelle  I have no fake credits. I have just been trying to get @ryan_j_gilmer  off my work so I do not associate with him. The work I have done before is either Assistant Director etc other roles I have done. Not Directing on my own solo. 

I don't know who @daniel_francis_gardecki  is either lol. I honestly thought he was you as well @ryan_j_gilmer You both have similarities I wouldn't be surprised! 

All I just want is Gilmer to leave me alone. I just do not want any association with Guy Manly Films period.

Stop posting about me on the FB page. Stop altering Youtube. Can you admit to altering pages?

Hi,

I corrected it a couple of days ago and someone has changed it back and made it even worse. I am quite ready to take legal action against the person who keeps changing this. 

Is there a way to reach out to your customer care team?

Thanks,

Varun

Hi Michelle,

Can someone please help me out here? They are trying to sabotage my reputation and it will be having a huge impact on my career since most of the film folks check imdb for almost everything. Its been giving me a headache for over 4 days now. I would really appreciate if some imdb staff would help me.

Thank you

I have submitted about 89 changes.

#211120-234318-783000

All of them got rejected. 

I checked my page again in a few hours and someone added over 580 episodes of me being an actor! if this is not harassment then what is?!

Hi Varun -

I can confirm that all the incorrect Actor credits have been moved to a separate page listing for "Varun Hadkar (II)", as these credits likely belong to another person with the same name.

Regarding the credit corrections you submitted, I can confirm that these have not been approved because our editors were unable to verify the information.  To help verify, can you post some screen grabs of your on-screen credited role for several episodes of each series?

Hi Michelle, please don’t put my name here. I don’t want anyone using google and finding this thread. Also, there is a NO person in this world with my name! It’s unique only to me. You can watch that tv show and notice there is no such actor. 

also, I am happy to share any videos and clips but I would prefer you lock the credits once I send proof your way.

Thanks,

Hi, I'm not a staff member, hopefully they'll respond soon and stop the person submitting the false data. But I did look at your page the other day and know the things you mention were not there, so I have submitted deletions to the 'self' credits which have been approved and should be gone, I also applied to delete that quote which is currently pending.

@VonPunk Hi there. Thank you very much. appreciate your help here a lot. The things I mentioned aren't there because I am submitting proof for everything whenever I get a moment. Would you happen to know if this profile can be locked to only my imdb pro account?

@vdh

Oh I meant I knew the Self credits and Quote were recently falsely added because they weren't there a couple of days ago, that's why I submitted deletions, I knew your claim was truthful and they were obviously put there to make you look bad, sorry if I wasn't totally clear. I only delete data I know for sure is incorrect.

I can tell you that IMDb accounts cannot be locked, the pages do not have that facility but IMDb staff should stop whoever is defacing your page and credits especially fake quotes that could damage your career. I hope that happens for you as soon as possible.

Gonna assume the 3 actor credits that appeared in last few hours are more fake credits but not going to delete them to you confirm they are. See picture.

@vdh I've not seen a staff member on here solving problems for 4 or 5 days now, I do not know why. You can try messaging direct to them here: IMDb | Contact
Tell them what is happening and you can even link this thread in the explanation. You should get a response within 24 hours. Hopefully they'll block the contributor from submitting again.
I have submitted 3 deletions to those actor credits and thy should be gone now.
The submission for the Quote is still pending sadly, things move slower at the weekend.

But if staff member passes by this thread, please push this through asap. #211127-212856-529000

Also due to the fake credits containing 'Salesman', a frequent character name by this troll, it confirms that these recently added, massively suspect credits moved to another page are indeed false, so this profile page should be deleted: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm13149883/

@VonPunk @Michelle 

Hello,

Someone is doing the same to me. His name is Ryan J. Gilmerhttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm4431318/.His account should be taken down he makes false claims constantly.  I have faced harassment from this guy on multiple occasions. I have also wanted to take legal action against IMDB for him creating and taking down IMDB accounts how is this even legal? And, press charges on him for using things without my permission. 

How does IMDB allow this to happen? My account has been compromised.  

Here is an account he created as fake and put my name on it.  

I wish for Idmb to erase anything with Ryan J. Gilmer I do not want to be associated with him at all. Can you please remove him on my jackpot page?

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12030914/?ref_=nm_knf_i3

Isn't it illegal to take imdb pages down? I don't know how this guy does it? He's an annoyance in the film industry and community.

@nelliepants  Oh Wow! Thank you so much! Is there any way to remove his page or take his name off Jackpot as a writer completely? I really don't want any association with this guy. He is bad news in our film community. He somehow got YouTube to do the same last year. Caused a lot of headaches for me.

@ryan_j_gilmer  you sure like to make yourself look like a victim. You might have 1 account but we all know it's your doing this.  The entire film community knows what you do Ryan. it's not rocket science. Take down Jackpot on your YouTube and I will do the same that way we have no association with one another. that's all i ask and for this to end you don't have permission from me to use it.

Hi vdh -

Apologies for the delayed reply.  I can confirm that the inappropriate Bio Quote has been removed as well as the newly created duplicate name page with false credits.

Concerning the ongoing sabotage, our staff have taken steps to help prevent further attempts of adding false data to your page.  If you notice any outstanding errors in the meantime, let us know!

Cheers!

the person who is trolling has changed almost all my movies. I now have to go in there and fix each and every credit with evidence again ! I am a little austounded on why someone else has the access to change my profile when i am connected to my imdb pro.

as a side note, I dont have a nickname, someone is trolling on the page no matter what.

Thank you for all your help both of you. It helps a lot

Glad to help, I can't believe your page has been defaced again so massively less than 24 hours after steps were taken to stop it.
It's obvious, he kept the old submissions and resubmitted them after they were removed so they would show up again.

I'll let the staff take care of this one, I think it'd take me ages to delete nearly 600 things just for them to pop straight back up tomorrow.

This troll needs IP banning and all their additions deleting and their changes reverted back what they should be.

Guys, please help. I think my entire page has been sabotaged with credits that din belongs to me and the person has made me a junior in almost all my movies. Have added unwanted credits on my page from movies or tv shows I have no idea about why or how this person is able to troll so much on my account.

the last update I added was shazam: fury of the gods: visual effects

after that day on everything is a catastrophic event.

Can you guys help do something about this?

Thank you very much for help so far

While they are taking too long to fix this is in my opinion, I'm positive they will do so.

I can see 36 major additions to your visual effects section as well other changes.

If the person doing this has their own IMDb page, the joke will be on them when they can't add anything to IMDb anymore. Maybe they are your jealous biggest fan or just have an empty life, I almost feel sorry for them but not quite.

Hoping for a return to business as normal here for you quickly.

Interestingly, I have a hunch who that person is. If imdb can confirm the ip address where its coming from, I would be fairly certain who it is. 

I think almost all my credits have been altered now. Even the ones that i was currently giving evidence for. I just dont understand how imdb works. I would rather have my page completely deleted than have trolled so much

Unfortunately they can't give out that data but they can stop them, they do consider this their data rather than yours, so it's in their own interests to restore your page back to it's truthful self , I can only assume Michelle submitted your page for extra protection but it's not gone through their system yet to the button pushers. Hopefully she will follow up soon and get it all restored.

My page just keep getting rotten by the day. Someone really wants to troll on me big time. I think, if IMDb is not able to solve this. I’d rather have no page on my name than having trolled on so much. It’s not good for reputation unfortunately. Most of the film folks rely on IMDb for info - just like Wikipedia

@vdh Sorry to hear it's still a problem. What response did the staff give you from the contact page?

It seems increasingly obvious the site is just compromised to trolls, bots and people who do not care to accurately contribute more than I've ever seen it and there is not enough staff and time to combat it all. I hope they are having a big think about how to go forward with the site and protecting it's data in the future.

Hi there,

Thanks for your follow up about this.

As mentioned, this has been forwarded onto our technical team for further investigation and we'll get back in touch when we have an update for you.

We're unable to expedite this process for you - please also note that messaging in frequently about the same issue may cause the investigation to take longer.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

@vdh Well at least it sounds like it's on their radar to fix, they should've marked this thread 'acknowledged'. It's just a waiting game now, hopefully sooner rather than later. Hang in there, that troll is a weakling that can't get the best of you.
