 So, I've been cleaning up my IMDB info. I have a common name and have been trying to consolidate credits spread out across various names and in some cases attributed to other Christopher Walkers. (I am trying to put all my credits under "Christopher Crutchfield Walker")  I've used the account merge in some cases (where a Christopher Walker had only my stuff, or was just a single credit that is mine) and then correcting individual credits, This worked for my merges, but then i tried to recover three credits that are mine from "Chris Walker" and put them under my account, "Christopher Crutchfield Walker"  Those three show up in my account activity now as: "150205-004916-661000 2015-02-05 00:49:16 Walker, Chris (I) Actor Credits -  3 credits corrected" But they are still listed under the other guy. Any thoughts?

it is possible that your changes were rejected. The message in the submission needs to be read as :
Actor Credits -  3 credits will be corrected if approved
This only indicates that they were added to the Actor queue for processing, not that they have actually accepted.

There is another potential problem with these submissions.

The Primary name (the name at the top of the Name page) should be the name under which you are most commonly credited. Unless you intend to work  and be credited as Christopher Crutchfield Walker, this should not be your Primary name.

I stumbled upon this trying to figure out who the narrator was for the TV show "Disappeared". It is incorrectly stated, they list "Christopher Walken". I knew the voice didn't sound correct and that prompted me to start researching. This is unrelated to your 3 posts changed. That's how it is shown on the television show info (credits). Clearly a typo! You are a very good narrator & you should get the proper credit, especially when an episode is aired. I'll check back in for a response, I'm sure you were already aware of this, so I'm eager to hear back. Also, curious if you resolved your initial problem that prompted this post. If needed I can upload an image, just let me know. Good luck!

I can take a picture of the screen if needed. I'm watching it on a 47 inch TV

That is not the on screen credits. It's something created by AT&T. It has nothing to do with IMDb or what they'll display so it's of no importance to IMDb and beyond the scope of this forum.

He's clearly not credited as "Walken" on screen, but as "Walker."



If you call AT&T and let them know they made a mistake, they might correct it.

I know, I stated that when I first responded that it was not related, seemed like a typo. I was simply making it known. I do not watch the scrolling credits and thought he would want to be informed as I would if I had that happen to me. Maybe I'm one of few that looks at that data, anyways...thanks, I'm not going to do anything because it seems like it's not a big deal. Good luck with the other corrections.
