My client is listed as AJ DiSpirito. He goes by his real name Adam DiSpirito. His lat role was confused in posting his credit. How do i switch his alias to show as real current name? AJ was a nickname during the 80's when he played football. Thanks Ann

To change his name, go to his page and click the yellow "edit page" button.

At "Name correction or merge," change "no change" to "correction." Scroll to the bottom and click the yellow "continue" button.

At "Name correction or merge" type in "DiSpirito, Adam." Leave checked the "preserve credit "as..." comment so the title that shows he was credited as AJ keeps an "as AJ" attribute. Explain, briefly, the need for change and scroll down and click "check these updates."

You'll be shown a list of similar/same names and you should choose " This is a different person not currently listed - create'DiSpirito, Adam'." Even though it doesn't sound right. It means "different name," not person in this case. Scroll down and check to "recheck these updates."

You should be allowed to "submit" at this point.

To have staff check status on your submissions, you'd actually need to post the submission ID numbers. Anyone clicking that link would only see his/her own submissions instead of yours.

Can you verify if all the credits display his name as it appeared in on screen credits? I would imagine those in which he was credited as AJ caused him to be listed first that way. That's what IMDb goes by. But a name change is usually pretty simple to do. When I have all the details, I'll submit it for you. I am concerned that there might be something still pending so the ID numbers would help me see how long it's been since the submissions were made.

I talked to him all the AJ DiSpirito credits are correct. Adam DiSpirito is used 1995 and beyond. Put the name change in as you requested, Thanks again! AM

I'll hold off as it looks like you just submitted more changes. Lets wait and see if they get accepted before doing any more piling on of requests.
