Jigsaw: two duplicated titles to be deleted

These two pages
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1785422/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5333274/
are two not updated and abandoned duplicates of a title, Jigsaw (2017), which was then compiled and published on this third page:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3348730/
I would like to know if it is possible to delete the two duplicates, as they become useless, or if it is possible to turn them into two redirects to the third page.

  • I would be satisfied if the cancellation was possible

Hi,
The common policy is rather to merge and edit, rather than delete.

Please check the Help or the numerous topics on this forum.

The merging of the two titles in the third one may be fine, but unfortunately I do not know how to do it: both titles are devoid of any edit function, and rather there are several links to IMDbPro. It would be better if the merger was made by some editor. Is this a possible request?

Are you even sure they need to be merged? They do not share the same directors, writers, stars and producer/production companies...

If you are sure, so a deep cleaning needs to be done by someone who is close to the project. You?

Merging in itself is easy, please see the Help: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/how-can-i-merge-two-titles/GAL233TVTCPMLVDK?ref_=h...#

As already explained, both titles are devoid of any edit function, so I can not apply the solution described in the help page. I want to clarify that I am not registered on IMDbPro

The Help page mentions "click on the Edit Page button at the bottom of the page".
Don't you have such a yellow button at the bottom of the pages ?

I am neither an IMDbPro member, just a plain registered user. And the Edit Page button is available even for non registered visitors.

I have attached two screenshots that show everything that appears on my monitor. As you can see, there is no editing button in any position.

Odd, weird and bizarre...
Thanks for sharing. Here is mine for https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1785422/reference

l

You will notice that at the end of the URL, I have ".../reference".
This is thanks to a profile setup : Account settings > Content settings > check "Contributors : Show reference view with full cast and crew (advanced view)"
But you might be able to add /reference manually...

How does it behave then?

Mystery solved!
When I saw your screenshot I suspected it could depend on the different personal settings of the visualization. I followed your instructions and now, as can be seen from the new attachment, I see the page exactly as you see it, so now I can try to ask for the merge of the two titles.
Thank you for the help you gave me. I hope I do not have to ask you for more help.

Glad for you, and a nice detail to learn.

You can always ask, someone should be available to answer, me or another contributor.

Unfortunately I have to ask you again for help: the problem is all written in the attachment. I am Italian and this could negatively affect my ability to understand english...

Hi Lorenzo,

First what are you trying to do leading you to this? what title are you changing to Saw: Legacy (2017), because this last title does not match one of the 3 URLs you provided in your initial message.

What is your source for this?  It does not look like these titles need to be merged at all.

If you believe that these two titles, although apparently forgotten and abandoned, do not really have any connection with Saw: Legacy (2017)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3348730/
then I cancel the merger request. But I think that these titles should be updated at least, if their production has gone on. Otherwise they would have to be canceled.

Please do not submit speculative title merges with no evidence just because they share the same title as another movie, and especially when you do not have access to the full data on them on IMDbPro.

As already mentioned, I cancel the merger request. Among other things, I do not even remember exactly how I discovered these two titles: I was probably looking for something and they were included in the result.

So, it's IMDb's fault?
:P
