What is the best way to change a name within the database to something that does not conform to name standards? Through Get Satisfaction? Through helpdesk? Some other means.

The name in question with which I am concerned is A. Game (nm8585349) which I myself submitted. The true name of this band, as listed in the following website - - is A-Game which does not adhere to name standards (i.e. I originally tried to submit it as A-Game, but eventually gave up, getting repeated errors in the process).

Gene: I am giving you a "me too" vote on this request to help attract the attention of the IMDb staff. It will take the staff's intervention to get this name formatted as the group prefers.

Thanks Gene, I've amended the name as requested. Yes this is probably the best way to do so, or by adding a miscellaneous comment to the name page.

I hope this helps.
