First credit was submitted with a typo in my name.

This is the wrong spelling: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7988518/

And this is the correct spelling: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9855050/

Can you please merge these to the correct spelling. Thank you.

Hi Stuart -

I just checked the site and noted that the two name pages are still listed separately on the site.  If you encountered problems merging the pages and need further help, please let us know here, thanks!

Ursula,

I noticed that you've recently joined the GetSatisfaction page. (Welcome!)

With a few exceptions, it's best to create a new discussion post instead of posting a response to posts from months or years ago. This particular post has been designated as being "answered" and may not be viewed by an IMDb representative. 

Having said that, submissions to correct data can take as little as 2-3 days or more. This also depends on and data processing backlogs. (Data Processing Times page.)

Please post the 18-digit reference number of the submission so an IMDb representative can review the update and respond.

Hi there. I have a simmilar problem. I'm polish but I live and act in Czech Republic. And they managed to credit me correctly only 3 times for last 10 years. Funny they never write me twice the same way. I alredy have a collection of screens "how NOT to spell my name"
Asked about IMDB I always said I have no profile. But I have two (only two - thx god, there's not so many czech movies in here) and both wrong. Can I fix it anyhow?

To Krzysztof Piotr Zakrzewicz,

Without any other information, it sounds like you need to submit two separate updates.

IMDb Help Center Page (Both links are on the same page):
Names - Name Corrections
Names - Merging a Name

In this case, start the correction on one of the name pages. After that page has been submitted, processed and published, go to the second page and submit a name merge. 

I hope this answers your question. Please write back if you want to provide specific links of the name pages or you need some assistance with the submissions.
