"Dondraco" Johnson

On this title
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2626350/fullcredits
you have listed


On 27Feb I submitted 190227-111507-699000
to delete the credit for Dondraco Johnson, whose only credit is this film.

I included explanation 
This is a duplicate, likely the initial entry of crew credits. The correctly spelled name is already listed: Dondraico Johnson, who has many other credits. This misspelled Dondraco has only this credit. Here's a screenshot of the 3 choreographer credits, which shows Dondraico with the "i": 
with a link to this screenshot:


The processing times page says Filmography: Crew Platinum 1 March 2019, so my contribution is no longer pending, and both spellings of Dondraico remain on the film's crew list.

When you google "Dondraco Johnson", the first entry is "Did you mean Dondraico Johnson?"

Please explain why my contribution was rejected and/or please put it through.

I would also recommend the Name page 
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6549319/ 
be eliminated.

Please see Ed's reply above; deletion is rarely the answer. 

From https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/how-do-i-correct-my-credits/GB89HGHNU... 

Wrong name listed on a title page? If the wrong name is listed on a title - you will have to submit the update via the title page itself to correct the actor association. Where possible, please try to correct any data as opposed to simply deleting it.

Col, the correct credit is already listed on the Title and on the correctly spelled Name:

Seems like Merging would cause a conflict because of that.

Please confirm that Name Merge is what I should submit in this circumstance.

When you merge two names it automatically absorbs the incorrect name into the correct one. No need for deletion. The Database would have self corrected that credit.
So no need for adding the credit with the correct spelling either.

It looks as though someone put through the name merge, and now the credits look like this:


But the film's credit does NOT list his name misspelled (see photo above in root post), so that's incorrect.

and when I look at the edit level, the duplicate credit still exists:

I just now submitted a deletion request for the duplicate (wrongly attributed) credit:
 #190305-152845-102000
and referred to this discussion in the explanation box.

Unbelievable! You can see on my submission that I unchecked the box to preserve the incorrect name! So it should not be in the database. That may be a glitch that need addressing.

The Processing Times page now shows Filmography:Crew as having no unprocessed contributions prior to 6Mar, and the credits on this title still show the double entry. So now I have 2 strikes against me for rejected contributions, and this credit is still double-booked. I'll try emailing staff.

Hi bderoes -

I just checked the filmography page for "Dondraico Johnson" and can see that there is now only one choreographer credit listed for "Step Up All In": https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1380447/

So the issue should now be resolved.  Cheers!

Michelle, Hi.
It is the added attribute that is incorrect.
Not the double name.
The "(credited as Dondraco Johnson)" is incorrect.
See Screenshot way up at the top.
Thanks
Cheers.

P.S. I see it is correct.
My Bad!!!
Cheers

@Michelle, thanks. The correction is now complete as I intended. It's really a shame that it took so much extra effort to accomplish this. I wish the original data editor had taken more time to look at the situation. Or was the original contribution 190227-111507-699000 rejected by automation, not a human?
