Greetings everyone. I'm new here and trying to use my name Davida Sal in my profile but it only allows me a user ID with no spaces, weird. Could someone help me that? thank you

When I searched the Help (link atop nearly every IMDb page), this seemed the most likely page for your topic:
User naming - User ID, Real name, IMDb page
and it refers you to 
https://www.imdb.com/registration/changeuserid
Which does not allow spaces, but does allow underscore.
Davida_Sal

If it's the Real Name you want to change (which, according to the Help page, only displays to you and in private emails with IMDb), that's controlled on the Login and security page. (Can't seem to find that on the Help page.)
