Arlene Farber/Iris Brooks confusion

Hi. I've been trying to correct an error on here for a few years to no avail. The actress Arlene Farber is credited here as appearing in four films under the name Iris Brooks.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0112029/

Brooks was a completely different actress, though. (They don't even look alike.) I am assuming the confusion came about because Iris played an unnamed/uncredited cult member in "I Drink Your Blood" and someone thought the two were the same (Farber plays a character named Sylvia), which messed up Brooks' other credits. Iris was in a few films and should have her own page here, where she can be properly credited. What do we have to do to get this cleared up?

Sorry, that's actually FIVE films Farber is credited as Iris Brooks in, not four.

Fantastic. There's only one small error: as I mentioned, Iris is uncredited in "I Drink Your Blood" and her character is never mentioned by name. Arlene played Sylvia and is credited as such. Everything else looks to be correct, though.

I've edited the "I Drink Your Blood" credits. Hopefully this last error will be fixed.

I tried to list Iris Brooks as "Cult Member" with an "Uncredited" attribute but it was declined, the reason given that it was "badly formatted." I'm really not sure how else to credit her in this film.
