Hi folks - I recently entered another film to my credits. I checked and everything looked all right; the new film was listed at the top of my credits as expected. Now, about 2 months later, I see that a duplicate name (II) for me has popped up, and only has the new film as credit, while my new film is no longer on my original (I) page. I also noticed this happened to a friend. I believe something is happening on imdb's end -- this was absolutely not user error. Please advise.

Greetings, Erik.
If you are absolutely sure that the two credits are the same, you can request the name merger.
Just go to the bottom of your profile, and select Edit Page.
One of the first things you'll see isĀ Name Correction or Merge.
It should be easy to figure out the rest.
