how do I get "wga" next to my name for the film I wrote? It's Extraction (2013/II). I am a WGA member in good standing and the film was shot in Los Angeles and was a WGA film. Thanks!

The WGA designation means that the WGA has directly confirmed the writing credits to IMDb. See http://www.imdb.com/updates/guide/wri... and http://www.imdb.com/partners/wga for details.

I don't think there is anything you need to do or can do to get the WGA designation put up, since that is done by WGA's communication directly to IMDb.

You cannot get the WGA affiliation included on your credits; IMDb does not allow guild affiliations as part of the name, even if they are included in the on screen credits.

IMDb is quite explicit about this in the Suffixes and Prefixes Section of the Submission Guide: Names, which states:
Suffixes indicating professional affiliation, like ASC, CSA, MPSE, etc., are never included; such guild memberships can be noted in biographical trivia
