Hi, I have recently posted about this problem, and it was resolved; but today it happened again.
When I search for my name I can not find myself.

A brief summary of my problem is:

I joined IMDb recently and unfortunately, I have had a lot of problems adding myself because some other actress shares the same name and surname with me.
My full name is Merve Yildiz but as I said someone else is registered with that name, so I am Merve Yildiz(V) now.
When I search for my name, I am not there! The only way to find my page is to go a page that I have credits and find myself, but when I search for it I am a ghost. 

Any ideas to fix this problem?

My IMDb link is: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm11131551/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t18

I searched your name and it’s true that only number ”I” comes up in search - in both mobile and deskstop view (probably doesn’t matter which, but anyway).

But, when I try to add your name to a (for example) new title via submission form, it comes up. So it’s definitely there
