Greetings,
I wanted to change my name and I had a previous account on imdb,  I went to  "edit page" and clicked on the option of "merge or change name" then it just created a new account with none of my credits. Please help, Im trying to change my name from Ildemaro Rafael Molina to Maro Molina but I wish to keep my credits...

Have you created all these, intending them to be pages with your credits?

Ildemaro Rafael Molina (II)
Ildemaro Rafael Molina (I) (Actor, My Trip to the Dark Side (2011))
Rafael Molina Illdemaro
Maro Molina (I) (Camera Department, Rabbi Dan Gets a Night Job (2014))
Maro Molina (III)
Maro Molina (II)

Can you verify if any of these seemingly superfluous, empty pages are meant to be in your name and if the two with credits contain yours or someone elses' credits (and probably stop adding pages until this can be sorted out).

Also, you can change your working name to Maro Molina but IMDb uses the name more recently credited and that which will be your working name most recently, often and going forward. Is this true of the name, at this point?

It might be helpful, too, going forward, to refer to those as IMDb Name Pages and not an "account" which, on IMDb, allows users to log in and utilize features of the site. So, if you're not really talking about your account, it's beneficial to refer to the page with links and refer to them as Name Pages, parts of the actual database.

Lastly, can you verify how your name appeared on screen for any credited work you currently will list on the page in your name?

I submitted requests to clean up all four of the extra pages into one each of your two listed names, no Roman numerals.

So, it's an easy last step to combine the two last pages (if/when you can confirm the way your name was credited).

Not hearing back, I assumed the first credit was added correctly and completed the merges of the page, correcting your name, if approved. You can check in a few days to see if everything is okay. Having one page, not 6 (nor 2) should keep your credits going to the right person.
