On a pro bono 1040X how do I take my name off the paid preparer section?

return was originally filed with proconnect.  Removing my name makes sense to me otherwise I am the "non-paid preparer" in the "Paid Preparer" section.
Thanks All

Are you a paid preparer, even though this particular return is no charge? Are you still applying your professional standards and knowledge to this non paid return?

You are not a tax return preparer if you are  "A person who prepares a return or claim for refund for a taxpayer with no explicit or implicit agreement for compensation, even if the person receives an insubstantial gift, return service, or favor."

26 CFR § 301.7701-15 - Tax return preparer.

But I sign those returns anyway.
