I am trying to remove a duplicate title.  When I go in and edit title, it then asks me for the date.  I put in the date (variable dates in fact) and it still wont let me change/delete this duplicate.

Usually, if you have a duplicate title, you can go to the incorrect title page and submit a title correction by typing the correct page's exact title and year.

If you are able to, please post the URL of the two titles so a contributor or an IMDb representative can review the pages and make some suggestions.

Hi Jeff -

Thanks for confirming the titles, looking at them they do appear to be listed as duplicates and should be merged as both Tom and GMJ suggested.  You can find the detailed instructions to do so here, let us know if you encounter any problems and we will be happy to help further.  Cheers!

I've tried this process several times and the default system prevents me from effectuating the change claiming that the dates are not right and yet I have also tried every variable of date known to this title (and to man for that matter) including ("No Date").  And still it prevents me from merging the two.  Even my distributors had the same issue.   Can you or someone from IMDB remedy this for us.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IMDB please enable deletion of duplicate titles..

I cannot enable a simple deletion of duplicate listings as I keep getting a correction denied notice.  There are two listing of the same projects:  Real Fake: The Art, Life & Crimes of Elmyr de Hory (2017) correct listing and Real Fake: The Art Life & Crimes of Elmyr de Hory (no date). The later is the one one I am trying to delete.  Please assist.

Hi Jeff -

I was able to see that your previous Title Merge requests were not allowing you to submit due to an unacknowledged Warning.

I have now submitted the Title Merge request on your behalf -- you can visit your submission history here to see how the submission was made (look for Contribution #180105-184621-329000).  This request has been forwarded to our title editors who will take a look shortly.  Cheers!

Hi Jeff -

I'm just following up here to confirm that the two titles have now been combined to a single listing under "Real Fake: The Art, Life & Crimes of Elmyr De Hory (2017)" here.  Cheers!
