Hello. I have successfully submitted merge requests in the past, but have had issues recently with info disappearing from IMDb - I want to be sure this one is done correctly and in the right direction. This is the same film but a duplicate entry.

I would like the following title Pacing the Cage (2014/II): 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10955946/ to be merged with the following page: 

Pacing the Cage (2014/I) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1496831/ and want to ensure that all the information on this page remains intact after the merge.

Please advise and assist. 

Thank you!

lisray,

To merge titles with Roman numerals, when you get to the Title Correction form bar, type the title you want the page to merge into this way.

Pacing the Cage (2014/I)
Title (Year/Roman numeral)

As noted in the form, write a brief statement in the Explanation box and acknowledge the yellow warning message.

I hope this helps.

Hi - very helpful, thank you!! I just don't want the detailed information on the first page to disappear when it's merged into the other page. That happened once before.

lisray,

On occasion, it helps to review both pages before submitting a title merge. It's possible some data may be lost or duplicated for reasons only an IMDb representative would be able to answer.

Hi lisray -

When merging the title pages, there may be some information that doesn't crossover, for example, we only allow one Plot Outline per title, so if the separate title pages each have a different outline, we will only retain one (likely for the page that the title is being merged into).  Otherwise, all  other data types should be moved and will display on the page unless duplication is detected.

Are there specific data types you are concerned about?
