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?

Hello,
Thank you for your fast respond. I'm Ildemaro Rafael Molina and I did create an other Ildemaro Rafael Molina by accident tying to change my name to just Maro Molina and happens that Maro Molina exist all ready so Maro Molina(III) was created by me. The other empty pages of Maro Molina with some other credits as assistant in camera  were created by other people I worked with and they put my name and add the credits with out my concern. I'm an Actor, Producer and Director and those are the only credits that I'm interested to show on my AMDB page. I apologies for all this confusion I'll be more careful now an on adding my credits and communicating with others. 

How can I transfer my first Ildemaro Rafael Molina credits to Maro Molina (III)??
Or it is possible to errase them and just one Maro Molina with all my credits as an Actor?

So, does all the data on all of the pages I linked above belong to you?

If so, how did your name appear on screen on all of those? Exactly as shown on each page? Or under different names?

No, it's not possible to "erase" anything. It must be corrected and not erased and re-added.

It is possible, in fact has to be this way, to have all credits shown on one page headed by your name as it was most recently and as it will appear going forward, in the on screen credits.

You say you only want certain credits shown...that's not how it works. The pages of IMDb are a reference tool for IMDb users. They must be complete and accurate. You, as a person named on them, cannot select what you want displayed and what you want to hide. It's not a resume service but a reference tool. So, if someone you worked with added credits that pertain to you, they should not be left off your page. No one needs your permission to include or exclude accurate data based on your personal preference. So, if the Maro (I) page refers to you, as do (II) and (III), the others should be merged to Maro (I), not the other way round.

It's possible to add the credits from the other page to you Maro page, but we need to clean up all the issues, not just put what you want, where you want it, then leave 5 or so messed up pages of the database. So, I'm trying to help you as much as possible. It's best if you give the best detail possible so things get set right. I guess I should assume your standing credits were correct to how they appeared on screen? Please verify or if you can, supply screen shots of the credits, otherwise, any fix we apply might get reversed if not noted properly to match on screen credits.

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.
