I recently added my book trailer ( http://www.imdb.com/user/ur60386412/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_2 ) to IMDb. It was approved, but I believe the wrong Cassandra Morgan has been credited for the work.
This is my profile: http://www.imdb.com/user/ur60386412/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_0
This is the person credited with the work: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2555015/?ref_=tt_ov_dr
I have no idea what this Bobby Jones Comedy All Stars is. It certainly isn't me.

I just saw this IMDb Pro? Maybe I need to create an account on their first?

Hi Cassandra -

First, just to clarify, please note that an IMDb Profile page (http://www.imdb.com/user/ur60386412/) is not the same as an IMDb Filmography page (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2555015/).

Second, since your credits have been listed on the page for another individual, a name/page split will need to be made. I have submitted the update on your behalf -- you can visit http://www.imdb.com/updates/history to see how the submission (look for Contribution #150518-183516-285000).

Thank you so much for your help! Do I need to create a filmography page in order to get proper credit? I'm doing this more for the actors that were in it, not necessarily for me. I'm just an author that created a book trailer.

You do not need to create an IMDb Pro account to add (most) data. Almost every update may be submitted from a regular account. The exceptions are Contact Data and Company Details; these two do need to be submitted from a Pro account, but any pro account may submit updates for any Contacts or Companies.

A Pro Account also allows you to 'claim your page' to set up a Resume account, which allow you to add photos to that particular page. Note that any pictures added to the page by this means will disappear if the Pro account is allowed to lapse.

A Pro account does not give you any extra rights in adding data.  Also both the basic and Pro versions of the pages are created from the same data, although they may actually update at slightly different times.

---------------

IMDb is a title based database.  You normally add credits to a Title, and link them to the current Name page (if one exists) by entering the name in the credit. If there are several possible Name pages that are matches (or close matches) for the entered name, the system will show a list of possible choices, so you can just check the appropriate radio button. If the person does not yet have a page, you just select the option to 'create a new name', and the system will set it up and link the credit to it.

Okay, that seems to be where I made my mistake. I didn't select the correct radio button option. Since Michelle has submitted my request, is there anything more I need to do on my end?
I really do appreciate everyone's help in this. The actors asked if I would create this for them so they could have credit for it. So, I really have only a partial clue what I'm doing here!
