I have four pages currently of Cooper Skinner. How can I get all four into one page? All of the pages were submitted by someone other than me.

You can submit the correction by doing "Name Correction or Merge"s as follows.

Start by going to the page of Cooper Skinner (II). Click "Edit page". On the next screen, on the Name Correction or Merge line, select "Add correction". Scroll down and click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a blank (unlabeled) box in which to enter the corrected name. Enter it as:
Skinner, Cooper (I)

If the box marked "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Cooper Skinner)'" is checked, uncheck it -- it's not relevant in this situation.

There will be an explanation box. In that box, enter an explanation to say that you are Cooper Skinner, your credits have been mistakenly split among several versions of your name with different roman numerals, and you need to have all your credits combined under the same entry. Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "You are about to merge two separate name pages into one. Are you sure you want to merge this person with Skinner, Cooper (I)?" Since that is what you want to do, check the box that says "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, all your data should appear with a green background, and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Then go to the page for Cooper Skinner (III) and submit a correction to change that name to Skinner, Cooper (I), the same way as above.

Finally, go to the page for Cooper Skinner (IV) and submit a correction to change that name to Skinner, Cooper (I), the same way as above.

It may take a few days for everything to be combined and some of your credits may even disappear temporarily, but it is likely that within a week after your submissions, all your credits will be combined onto a single page.

Good luck!
