My name has been spelt incorrect on a credit. It has been spelt as Myers, Colette Creary or Colette Creary Myers. Every time I try to correct it, the correction is rejected as identical - the correct spelling is Collette Creary-Myers. I have now added a new credit for a different film and again this credit is connected with the wrong spelling. I cant fix it myself - since it wont let me. If it can be done via imdb that would be great since I am getting now. This is the page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5007832/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr53

I expect the problem is in replying to the warning about similar names.

In spite of what it says you need to click the radio button beside the last item:

This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Creary-Myers, Colette'.

Not your current name.

Clicking on your current name, changes what you have just entered back to the current name - which of course is identical to the current name.

The last item will actually just change the name, not create a new page. It is extremely badly worded, and should be changed because it often causes this problem.

Hi David, 

Thank you - this makes a lot more sense now. I couldn't see what I was doing wrong, made the change - hopefully it will come through onto imdb in the next couple of days. 

Thanks again.
