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.

Tried this like 6 times. They created other Adam DiSpirito(s) I & II. He went as AJ when he played football, whomever did his credit listings are wrong he always went by Adam DiSpirito for acting. IMDB even says AJ is his nickname. This is so frustrating can't even pay anyone to properly fix! AM

His last credits with Playmakers, Redrum, and deadly Devotion are lost cause they see AJ.

Nothing is "lost."

How long did you wait before re-submitting? It takes between 2 days and 2 weeks to fully process. It is very important that you stop re-sending. You can post the submission ID numbers from your submission so staff can check the status.

Any addition pages with his credits can, when the change is complete, be "merged" together which will result in his page displaying all the credits.

That's what I figured, but has been months since I was frustrated and stopped. Now I noticed today his Redrum recent credit went under a new Adam DiSpirito. There are two dupes that are wrong. They haven't changed AJ to Adam and I'm right back where we started. Is there anyone that offers a service to fix this? I never had a name problem with a client before. Thanks! AM

I don't know of any service but there a few of us that will help out and staff monitors this board and can help too. Has it been months since you last submitted anything? If so, I can submit it now. But if it's been a few weeks or less I recommend posting the submission ID number and letting staff take a look. The numbers should be on this page (log in to your account and click) http://www.imdb.com/updates/history

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.
