I am contacting you because this is my IMDB account and I currently have a credit on here from death walks a film currently in production due to be released in 2014.
It has my name on the credits but for some reason is not linking with this profile.
As I'm sure you can imagine it is vital as an actor for my career that my profile shows my imdb credits.
I was wondering if you could somehow assist me in trying to resolve this issue?
,I hope to be hearing from you regarding this issue.
Thank you for your time and patience

It's difficult to know exactly what you're asking. Do you have links to your "account" or IMDb page?

When you say, "This is my IMDb account..." what, exactly is. You don't point to anything when you say that. Did you mean to add a link? If you could it might help.

I assume this is you, but I see that credit is, indeed, listed.

If you have an IMDb User account, in addition to your IMDb Name Page (the one I linked), the two are separate things. A user account is not meant for showing IMDb credits. Probably most people listed in IMDb don't have a user account at all. Further, user accounts cannot be searched. So, someone wanting to see your credits might never find you anyway.

A user account, when you're looking at your profile, will have a user constant included within the url address. It will look like, ur9999999, for example.

A page on the Internet Movie Database, dedicated to a person, will have "name" constant, like nm99999999.

A user account is for entering IMDb and using features such as making lists, writing reviews, rating films, and if you also have an IMDb Page, can be used to submit your credits or you can use it to claim your page to upload head shots, photos, resume, etc.

For example, my user name is "bluesmanSF." But if I also worked in films, they might add a page for me that would show my credits, like "bartender...Joe Smith." The bartender credit wouldn't/shouldn't show on my user profile, unless I type it in there in my profile. Because people won't know who "bluesmanSF" is anyway.

Is this what you mean?
