There are currently 2 IMDB pages under my name. Each has separate acting credits on them. I've tried merging the accounts, but it doesn't seem to have worked. Does anyone have clear instructions how to do this?

Hi Leah,

Thank you for your message.

For information on how to merge two name pages please see here for details:

http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domain=helpdesk_faq&index=1&file=namemerge&ref_=hlp_sr_5

Alternatively, please provide us with the IMDb url for both of these pages and we will happily merge them on your behalf.

Regards,

Hi Rida.... I have a similar issue.  There are 2 "Edward Shapiro" listed at the law firm of Reed Smith. (They are both me.) ONe is "Edward Shapiro (I)" and "Edward Shapiro (II)".  The "(II)" has an abridged list of clients where as the "(I)" has a much longer list. Can I have the 2 merged, or, have "(II)" deleted?   Thanks. -Ed

Hello, 

If you have an IMDbPro or an IMDb user account, you can submit a name merge, which will combine the data on both pages into one page. Instructions are on the page link below.

IMDb Help Center Page:
How can I combine two IMDb filmography pages?

In your case, go to the name page with the higher Roman numeral. When you get to the Name Correction or Merge form, type the name this way:

Last Name, First Name (I)

Since it appears that you are the only person in the database with this name, the Roman numeral should disappear after processing, which can take 48-72 hours.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.

Donna, this is a rather old thread that won't be read by staff. You'd better start a new thread regarding this issue.
