Guillaume; Here is how to fix this. The basic idea is that you will change your (III) and (IV) names both to Guillaume Leroy (II).

Go to your (III) page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5612030/. 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 space in which to enter the corrected name. Enter it last name first, as:
Leroy, Guillaume (II)

Uncheck the box marked "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Guillaume Leroy)'" -- it doesn't apply to this situation.

In the Explanation box, enter something like "I am Guillaume Leroy, and all the credits on the pages of both Guillaume Leroy (II) and Guillaume Leroy (III) are mine. Therefore, these pages need to be merged." 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 Leroy, Guillaume (II)?" That's what you want, so check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

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

You can then go to your (IV) page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5613822/ and follow substantially the same procedure to change that name to Leroy, Guillaume (II), just changing the reference so that you indicate you are merging the (II) and (IV) names this time.

Good luck!

Hey Gromit82 great thanx to you and the time you took to answer me but I still have problems!! After clicking on the link "Edit" I find this page (link):
But there is no blank space where I can write my name in! (the "attribute" space can't be filled)...
I'm already lost; sorry about that!
I understood what you tell me to do but I just can't find the right pages or links....
Wainting for new instructions!
Thank you anyway!

The "action" (left of the name) says "keep" so to keep there will be no editable field yet. Change that to, I think it becomes, "correct" then scroll down and click the "check updates" button. Now you're correcting the entry and it'll be editable.

Guillaume: The name correction I'm talking about is accessed not on the Casting Department member Credits line of the edit page -- it's the Name Correction or Merge line. I have illustrated this below (with a red arrow drawn onto the screen shot to point it out).


You will select "Add correction" on that line so that it will look like this (again, I have drawn a red arrow onto the screenshot).




Then scroll down and click "Continue", and follow the rest of the instructions above.

Good luck!
