Linking two Imdb accounts together

On my Project "Thank You" (III) I didn't now my director, Tim Sanders aka T.E. Sanders, had an Imdb account, so, I entered him in and it gave him a new Imdb page. Then, I discovered that he did have an Imdb page, and I went back and modified the information so that the Imdb page would be linked, but it is still separate. If you search Imdb, Tim Sanders(V) and Tim Sanders(IX), are the same person.

Hello.

As you now know, always look first to make sure the person doesn't already exist, but also so that you're spelling (or better yet, using the IMDb name number-you can see it when on his/hers page by looking at the browser address, nm99999999, etc.) the name as it exists.

But, to merge names, use the instructions here: http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domai...

If his name is credited differently than the header on his page, you'll credit him "as T.E. Sanders" (for example if he's credited that way, the header though is "Tim").
