I'm Erik D. Magnus, and both my titles in Sound Department of "The Working Dead" 2013 has been attributed to Erik H. Magnus. He says he has contacted about getting it changed, but that I needed to contact as well.

Anyone can make the change, but if he has done it then it'd be best not to submit any further changes - the problem is I don't know who he has contacted or what they have said or if he has made any submissions to fix that. Do you have any further details?

Are you credited with your middle initial on the credits? If so it is an easy enough to prove and fix.

It's credited using his middle initial. When I go in to try to correct it, it shows nothing in the Sound Department box to correct/update. EHMagnus asked me to try to change it a few weeks ago, so if he's attempted to change it, clearly it hasn't taken. Thanks for your help!

I mean when the credits appear on the screen. That is the vital piece of evidence IMDB require.

When I go in to try to correct it, it shows nothing in the Sound Department box to correct/update.

Are you trying to do this on the top level then that isn't how you make the changes? You'd either need to do it through their name page or at the episode level.

However, the problem is I can't find the credits on either of your pages:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0536326/

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5993520/

They are on another page for Erik Magnus (no middle initial):

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6067247/

I assume the earlier changes have triggered a split. This makes the fix easier, as all you need to do is merge that into your page:

www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?namemerge

Although I'd wait until all your credits have appeared on that third page before doing the merge.

Ah no sorry, they are there on his page still - I initially checked when I had the wrong end of the stick and was looking for The Walking Dead!!

Anyway, the advice is the same, change the credit on the episode level:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3303200/

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3303140/

And also merge this into your name page at the same time (no need to wait):
