Shomari,

Nobody is a wizard here, and is able to guess what kind of issue you could face with your credit attributes.
So help people to help you: what is your name page? What kind of issue are you facing? Please also share some examples and the related submission ID(s)...

Hi, Shomari. What are the 18-digit reference numbers of the pertinent submissions? Are you Shomari (II) or another "Shomari"?

I don't see an attribute listed. Maybe, you are mistaking the roman numerals after your name. Since IMDb is a database, it needs to make names unique. If there was already an existing Shomari in the system, the system would make them Shomari (I) and you Shomari (II). This is only done to uniquely identify people. It is not an attribute.

There does not seem to be another Shomari listed though. Maybe, there was at one time and it was deleted. All of your credits are listed just as "Shomari" or "Shomari Martinez". The (II) is just a designation for the database.

Thanks for this info. The issue is where I says Shomari Martinez. That is not accurate. It should only be listed as Shomari.

Thanks. I just tried that approach
. Before I clicked the film credits and saw Shomari Martínez in attribute sections of several projects. I deleted that and clicked submit.

Hi Shomari, 

Please note that we must list our filmography based on a titles end credits, this is also done so that anyone searching for a name which appears in the on-screen credits of a film will be directed to the page belonging to the correct person,even if the on-screen credits feature a different spelling or slightly different name.

We believe these and attributes listed are accurate, sinceit's our policy never to remove or alter factual information, we cannot deleteit. 

Thanks
Meredith

The credits should remain but the “(as Shomari Martinez) is the issue/error. That’s not my sur name.

But if you were credited on screen as Shomari Martinez, IMDb will retain it.
So the question is: how were you credited on screen?

That is how it was credited but that name does not represent me. Nor was it actually on screen.

Shomari,

it does not make sense: if the name is not on screen, therefore it is not credited...
