Please, keep this page (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8088557/), and delete this page (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6581483/). Those are the same people and her name spells Yang Ge!

Usually, if there are two or more pages for one person, a name merge is submitted combining the data from both pages into one.

There are four titles plus three links in the Official Links section on the page you want to be deleted. Should that data actually be merged into the correct name page?

There is no need to merge them, because info is same on both pages. Or if it's still needed, how I can fix this?

You can just merge them. it's always faster & easier than asking for one of them to be deleted.

If you're sure that they both refer to the same person then you can go to the page for  Yan Ge (II) at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6581483/ and change the name to
Yang Ge (III) (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8088557/)

It will tell you that doing that will merge the two entries but that's just what you want to do so acknowledge the warning and complete the submission

Hi Emelian -

I'm just posting here to confirm that the two pages you reported have now been combined to a single listing under "Yang Ge (III)", see here.  Cheers!

I have the same situation.  How can I get two pages merged?  This is the old page https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9819991/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

This is the new page https://www.imdb.com/user/ur91415717/?ref_=nb_usr_prof_0
Thank you,
Stacy

Yours is a different situation, sorry.  These two pages are entirely different things cannot and should not be merged. Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdbpro/manage-your-imdb-page/what-s-the-difference-between-an-imdb-pa...
