Hello,

I am not sure I fully understand what you are trying to do:
splitting is usually undertaken for one single name page to be split in 2.
Moreover you want to remove one of the pages after operating your "splitting".

I can understand you want to move Sarah's credit into Cyh's, in which case it would amount to perform a page merge.

Can you please clarify?

See the links provided by ACT_1 above.

There are no credits on the Cyh page nor does the name Sarah appear.

All the credits on the Sarah page are as Cyh.

Is this one person or two people?

If one person then the pages should be merged and if all the as Cyh attributes are correct then the Sarah page should be merged into the Cyh page.

Otherwise something else should be done and without the basic facts the experienced contributors here cannot give the most relevant advice.

The name Sarah was erroneously added to Cyh's page. I am in contact with Cyh and I can ask her to confirm this if necessary.

OK, so to summarize in my own words:

We have two different people, Cyh Scaevola and Sarah Scaevola.
Some credits belonging to Sarah have been added to Cyh's filmography.
In which case, it should not be too compex to correct, and the instructions can be found her: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/how-can-i-move-credits-to-another-pag...#

Same thing if some of Cyh's credit appear by mistake on Sarah's page.

It seems to me to be more likely that there is one person whose work is all credited under the name Cyh Scaevola but for whom a page was created under the name Sarah Scaevola. All the credits on that page are now '(as Cyh Scaevola)' but without access to the history I do not know if those attributes were in the original submission that caused the page to be created.

The page under the name Cyh Scaevola has no credits but once again without access to the credits I do not know if that has always been the case. Note that the name Sarah does not appear on that page.

I little further digging suggests that this may be the same person as Cyh Anide but without more complete information it is hard to tell.

Let me just repeat something again - the name Sarah does not appear on the  Cyh Scaevola page. It is impossible to "... remove Sarah's name from the Cyh page." because it is not there.

Going back to the initial request, you cannot split two pages into one - they are already split. You can split one page into two (or more) but if you have two pages where there should be one you have to merge pages.

We just do not have the basic information to give the right advice here.

Let me try this again - the credits on Sarah's page belong on Cyh's page.

So, should not a merge (Sarah's page into Cyh's) be considered?

I've merged the two pages now consolidating the credits under the name Cyh Scaevola.

Thanks, but that's exactly the opposite of what I was asking for.

You mentionned explicitely:
Let me try this again - the credits on Sarah's page belong on Cyh's page.
What do you expect us to understand?
Anyway, you just need to rename Cyh's page and the matter should be over.

It seems to me that what has been done has achieved exactly the requested outcome.

Perhaps screenshots of the credits of the various titles would clarify matters. It looks as if all the titles are YouTube videos so that should not be too hard if you can find them. I found what I thought might be one of them but it is hard to be sure if it was the right episode. If so, then the Cyh Scaevola credit should have the uncredited attribute unless I missed where the name appears on screen. The voice attribute too unless there was some live action that I missed.

Sorry, I misunderstood - that's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much Will, Vincent, Owen, Jeorj and ACT_1.
