Janette: I see that the duplicate version has been removed from http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0632466/bio already.

Thank you gromit82. They've done the same thing for Tamsier Joof's bio I'm working on. I want the first edit removed and leave only the second edit http://www.imdb.com/name/nm7237855/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm which is a duplicate of the first edit but with links. How can I remove the first edit? Thank you.

Janette: Go to http://www.imdb.com/name/nm7237855/bio and click "Edit page".

On the next screen, on the Biography line, select "Correct/Delete". Click "Continue".

On the next screen, to the left of the bio that you want to have removed, select "Delete" in the Action box. Leave the one that you want to keep as "Keep". Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will be asked to provide an explanation for the bio being deleted. Enter something like "This is one of two biographies on this page containing almost the exact same content, both of which were written by me. However, this biography lacks some of the 'qv' links which are included in the other biography on this page. Therefore, this bio can be deleted because all of the information in it appears in the other bio on this page." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, the bio you are seeking to have deleted should appear with a green background, and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Good luck!
