Without a box created a Bob Demars instead of linking me to my name already on IMDB (Bob DeMars). How can I fix this?

It is a common error; you fix it with a merge which i have done submission 150108-090114-645000 to merge Demars into DeMars.

If you want the detail of how to do it, I list it below, but I have submitted it on your behalf.

If it is approved then it should be done within 5-7 days or sooner.

If you have two name pages, the main one and t'other one...go to t'other one and find the edit page button at the bottom of the page:

On the next screen you'll see this - select the option for name correction and go next.

Next screen you enter the name you wish to change to - for a merge this is simply the name of your other page...ideally enter it number and all - but even if you don't the next screen will help you out. If you have a second name page with a slightly differ (John Smith Jr.) then leave the "preserve previous name" ticked - it will still merge but with a note that will say (as John Smith Jr) - it is factual and keeps people from thinking it is a mistake to credit the work to John Smith.
The reason can just be "same person"...but if you have some detail do add it:

Next screen will offer you other names just as a check - tick the right one and move on:

The final screen is just a sanity check, checking you are not trying to do something else and that you are sure...acknowledge the warning and proceed:

Final screen - green to go...hit submit.

^all this made it sound really long and complex...but it is quite easy to do and takes 2 minutes max....hopefully you never need to do it again, but just in case.
