Need help because the help pages aren’t helping.

An IMDb page was created for me for film credit. The movie I just finished added a credit to that page I didn’t know was created. I created my personal page without really looking at my options on how to merge both pages. How do I do this? The help pages don’t seem to be much help and I need to get this done.

Hello Dee Dee Tolbert
What was the title of the film (movie)? 
Which name are you listed on the IMDb under? 
 
If you can tel us that then we can tell you if you need to merge any pages and how you can do it.

There are two: Fiancé Killer and Murder Creek (Post Production). This page is Davida Tolbert. My page is listed as Davida Evette Tolbert.

Aha, I see. And you are just listed as Davida Tolbert in both of those titles. So I presume that you want to merge the page for Davida Evette Tolbert into that for Davida Tolbert. Your listing under each title should show your name as it appears on screen in the credits list. 
 
But you can merge them by going to the page for Davida Evette Tolbert and hitting the Edit page button down towards the bottom of the page. 
Select Name Correction or Merge ... Add Correction 
Hit Continue 
Change the name to just Davida Tolbert 
Tick the box that says "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Davida Evette Tolbert)' 
Give the Explanation that you want to merge them to get your picture & details associated with the entry for Davida Tolbert. 
Hit Check these updates. 
Select the correct entry for Tolbert, Davida (Actress, Fiancé Killer
It says "You are about to merge two separate name pages into one." 
Tick the box to say "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." 
 
The background to the section you've changed should go green(ish) and it should offer you a Submit button 
Hit Submit to make your submission request. 
Then sit back & wait fot your submission to be checked, hopefully approved & added to the database.
