Add language to destinguish between accounts and IMDb Name Pages

Frequently (daily...sometimes multiple times, daily) people wanting to be listed in IMDb create a user or Pro account and get confused between having that and an actual Name Page. 

It might be a good idea to add language, during the sign up process, explaining that this is not creating a Name Page but a user account for accessing site features and that to create a Name Page, a person needs to have been added to the credits of a film/show, etc...

I'd never heard this come up before a year ago but it's now daily on this board (I'd never seen it on the old Help Board-maybe this board is more accessible?).

Definitely agree with this. I would have thought this was obvious (as I imagine IMDB staff do), but it clearly isn't.
