Hi Guys!
I would love some help in how I could link the credits I received to my profile from the work I have done on a couple of shows?

The below link is the credit that was created for me, thus a profile.

The below link is a show I've also worked on previously also but I don't have a credit. I however have added it to the profile above via request.

My question is - how do I link that above profile to the profile i'm currently logged in to?

Or does it not work that way?

No, it doesn't really work that way.

Any registered user can submit update requests to any name or title page in the database (including adding new titles, and adding credits that create new name pages). No individual is given control over a specific name page.

However, IMDb offers a Resume Subscription that allows the individual whose data is in a specific page to add photos and a resume page which is completely under their control. To subscribe to this you would need to upgrade your account to IMDb Pro, which will then allow you to 'claim your page'. Once you have done this, only this account will be able to add/change 'official photos' and/or maintain the Resume page. (Note that IMDb may add photos from their partners to your page, and any cast photos added to Title pages that feature you may show up on your page.)

Since Resume is a subscription service, if you cancel your IMDb Pro account or let it lapse, the photos you have added and the Resume page will disappear from the display pages.

Note that IMDb Pro, in addition to permitting you to 'claim your page', also allows you to see company details and employment/contact details, plus the ability to submit 'New Title' requests for projects still in development. It also lets you see the basic information in a different format than the standard account.

Again, the Pro account gives you additional abilities, such as adding photos, but does not give you any control over what data is added to/shown on your IMDb Name Page.

Sean: I may be misinterpreting what David wrote above. However, if you worked on the TV series "I Will Survive", go to the page for the appropriate episode of that series, click "Edit page", and go through the process to submit your name to the appropriate cast or crew department. Make sure to list your name as Perez, Sean Michael, the same way your name is listed on your already existing credit.

If you were not credited on the episode of "I Will Survive" that you worked on, make sure to include an Attribute of (uncredited) in the Attributes column. On the other hand, if you were credited but not under your official IMDb name (for example, if you were listed as "Sean M. Perez"), then you should include an appropriate Attribute of (as ...) in the Attributes column (such as (as Sean M. Perez), for example).

If you have already tried doing something like this, and it didn't work, please provide your update number and the details.
