Renata: Yes. After this merge is completed, all of your credits will appear on the Renata Stec page, although the ones you did under the Renata Stec-Ross name will have the attribute (as Renata Stec-Ross) so that the name under which you were working at the time will be correctly identified.

To do this, go to the Renata Stec-Ross page at Click "Edit page".

On the next screen, on the Name Correction or Merge line, select "Add correction". Scroll down and click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a space in which to enter your corrected name. Enter it as:
Stec, Renata

There will be a checkbox marked "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Renata Stec-Ross)'". Make sure that box is checked.

In the explanation box, enter something like "I am Renata Stec, and all the credits on both the Renata Stec and Renata Stec-Ross pages are mine. I am no longer using the name Renata Stec-Ross, and so all of the credits on that page should be merged onto the page with my current name, Renata Stec." Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "You are about to merge two separate name pages into one. Are you sure you want to merge this person with Stec, Renata? ..." That's exactly what you want, so check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, your data submission should appear with a green background and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

As the submission goes through, allow a few days for all of the credits to appear on the Renata Stec page (some of them may disappear briefly, but they will all come back).

Good luck!
