hello

my name is gerd berner - my account on imdb is gerd d. berner
many of my works have been credited to another account by the name of gerd berner. which is wrong. this is a totally different person. he is about 30 years older and lives in germany.
where as i live in austria. i already asked you a couple of years back to fix this issue, but i never got any reply. i hope to hear from you, because i need these credits to be updated as soon as possible for professional reasons. 

the following works should be credit to my account: gerd d. berner (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5663616/?ref_=fn_al_nm_2)

Hello,

I'm assuming that you already have an IMDb user account or an IMDbPro account. If you do, you can submit an update by moving the credits from one name page to the other. Instructions are on the link page below.

IMDb Help Center:
How can I move credits to another page?

Read the information below Approach A: How to remove credits.

In your case, start the submission from the Gerd Berner name page. As noted in the instructions (Step 5), make sure to click the checkbox next to the statement ‘Show name?’ Go to the titles which belong to you and change the name from this:

Berner, Gerd

to this

Berner, Gerd D.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you need some assistance with the submission.

Please post the 18-digit reference numbers so an IMDb representative can review the updates and respond.

Gerd,

From my previous post, I was referring to the 18-digit reference numbers/contribution numbers. The link page below goes to your personal Update History.

https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history

They should also be available in your email correspondence from IMDb. The numbers should look like this:

200109-020202-123000

Gerd,

Considering what you've posted before (and thank you for posting the reference numbers), I'm not sure why a representative has not responded either. It may have something to do with the discussion listed as Acknowledged.

Considering when the updates were submitted (Data Processing Times page), they may not have been viewed or were declined. Go to your Update History page and click the Track Contrbution button for each submission. If each update says "pending," or "declined," or "needs attention," then it's best to file a report through the IMDb Contact Us page.

IMDb Contact Us

Suggested path:

IMDb Fan/Contributor questions -> Names & biographical Data -> Other name and bio data issue -> Email

Please include the following in the Explanation box:

- The reference numbers you've posted
- The URL of this discussion

Hopefully, you should receive a response from an IMDb representative by the email address registered to your account.

Writing as a long-time contributor, sorry for the long wait. I hope this helps.
