Years ago, a production company that i worked on their production, made a profile for me (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2363008/), later i realised i couldn't access it so i made another profile (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5988897/) hoping to link the two together, but now i have two and i can't update my filmography on the original listing. Please kindly advise what should i do?

Peiman: The first name page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2363008/ is not something that you "access" per se. If you have information to add to that page, you would do so by clicking "Edit page" and submitting the data in the appropriate category -- but that's also how you would add information to the page of Johnny Depp or Sandra Bullock or any of the millions of other people in the database. (Also, if you are trying to add film, or especially television, credits to your page, it may be easier to go to the page for the title, click "Edit page", and submit your name to the title, rather than starting from your name page and submitting the title there.)

To merge the two name pages for you, go to the page for Peiman Zekavat (II) at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5988897/ and 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 as:
Zekavat, Peiman (I)

Uncheck the box marked "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Peiman Zekavat)'". It doesn't apply in this case.

In the Explanation box, enter something like "I am Peiman Zekavat, and my credits appear on the page of Peiman Zekavat (I) while the Peiman Zekavat (II) is a duplicate page also created for me. Therefore, these pages should 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 Zekavat, Peiman (I)?" 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".

Allow a few days for the merge to go through. Good luck!
