Are they?:

Richard Everett (I) (Actor, If.... (1968))
Richard Everett (III) (Writer, Full House (1985))
Richard Everett (II) (Simsalagrimm (1999))
Richard Everett (IV) (Writer, The Lent Inspector (2015))

and if so, does all data on all these pages pertain to you?

Thanks. So, on the (II), (III) and (IV) pages, I submitted a request to correct the names to be "Everett, Richard (I)" which will result in them merging into one page with all the credits carried over.

If it should happen again, you can find the instruction by clicking "help" which then shows an FAQ list containing You have two separate pages for the same person, how can this be fixed? (or in most of the hundreds of posts here that ask the same question...which means its an extremely common issue).

Just give it a couple days to process and don't worry if credits disappear/reappear in the mean time as that is common as the page rebuilds.

Thanks a lot! Appreciate it. Really helpful. While you're there - I also tried to add a credit. I was main writer on a series called "Testament - the Bjble in Animation :'Joseph' " which was nominated for a BAFTA but am not listed on that page and even though the programme/series IS listed on Imdb, it kept rejecting it. Any wisdom on that?

If you can obtain a screen capture of your name appearing in the on screen credits, if they rejected it because it could not be verified, you can post it here with the most recent Submission ID Reference number, staff here can see that the proof is forwarded and attached to your submission so the page editors can verify and add the credit.

Thanks but the reason that came up on the screen in pink writing was the title wasn't listed on the database - even though it is, and the suggested alternatives they gave on the drops down menu matched what I was putting in. You can find the series title and full
details and cast and crews etc listed yourself. Will try again but have a go yourself a let me know ? Thanks for your help with all this, really appreacite it ?

The best thing to do, when adding a credit to an episode, is to start by going to the episode's page and editing the page from there rather than adding it from your name page. The reason being, it's difficult to get the title in the right format and it won't locate it if one little tiny thing is wrong. For example, if you have one character, space, bracket, etc. wrong with "
"Testament: The Bible in Animation" (1996) {Joseph (#1.7)}" it won't likely find it. Try copy/past from between the quotation marks as I typed it or just go to the episode page first, then adding your name.

Thanks a lot. Credits all now one page so it seems to have been sorted. Much appreciated. And have edited the "Testament series: 'Joseph'" page and added myself as writer which is now being processed so hopefully that will filter through to my own page? Thanks again for your help.
