They can want uncredited credits and alternative/incorrect names removed from their profiles as much as they want, but if they...

  • Can be seen on-screen in those uncredited roles
  • Are credited with that name in those named roles

Then they will never be removed.

They can only be removed if they're completely false, like with someone I found recently who had two of her credits from 18 and 19 years ago under the name Ali on a different IMDB profile.

I checked the on-screen credits for both of those films, and she was credited correctly by her actual name Abi on both of those films, therefore I've submitted a request for that incorrectly named profile to be merged into her main profile under her actual name, and I've unchecked the preserve previous credits box as they're incorrectly named credits.

I can't understand how they got added incorrectly in the first place, as the letters and are nowhere near each other, so it clearly wasn't a typo, it was clearly just someone being unable to read properly and not paying attention when adding credits.

I would think there would be a way to remove the uncredited credits in attribute section for the ones in the last 10 years if anything and the alternative name was put on their by mistake and they wanted it removed in the attribute section. They want to keep the film credit but the attribute section for uncredited credits and the one alternate name they want removed. There must be a way. Not sure why they were on there credited that way.

@Sally Is correcting IMDb credits for someone easy to do because I've tried several times and nothing happened.

Because that's his forename and surname obviously.

It's not often that people add their middle names or middle initials, unless their names are common names, and Niko Zavero definitely isn't a common name.

Middle names or middle initials are needed even more so when there's someone else with the same name, who was born in the same place, like an actor born near me, who was forced to add his middle initial to his acting name, as there was already a famous actor with that name who was born in the same place.

There's not even another Niko Zavero on IMDB for Niko El Santo Zavero to get mixed up with, which also shows the name isn't common.

I don't see why it's so bad to have that alternate name on the page, but there may be a way to get it removed, as described here:

@Sally They just would like it removed that's all but I wish an IMDb employee could help get it resolved!
