When I search my name on IMDB it comes up twice, same spelling, same info, but one doesn't have photo but has after my name (director, Producer). The 1st name that come sup has photo, correct info but doesn't list (director/producer) after name in title. I would like one listing, and when searched to appear as - Sean Patrowich Writer/Director/Producer) with the photos. Can you combine that? Why are there 2 listings?

This is a very weird case. Somehow the request to create your Vanity URL created a new Name page that contains only that one item, and even more oddly gave it the first position i.e. Sean Patrowich (I) . However the Vanity URL actually links to your main page Sean Patrowich (II) .

Normally, I would say to just submit a Name Merge, but I know that IMDb has been having problems with new Name pages being generated unexpectedly. Therefore, I would recommend you wait until an Employee checks this thread, so they can check it out and find out what happened.

While it is a bit annoying at the moment, it really isn't a problem as all your data is on the one page (except the vanity URL), so there is no doubt what work you have done. Waiting a couple of days won't do any harm.
