Changing short film listing to a feature film listing? (2 seperate entrys already exist too)

Hi need to merge https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21229168/ this (short) with https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21116392/ (film).  But keep the cast/crew info of the short.  I want to do this correct and not delete anything from the short we have.  How can I do this.  What is the exact thing I would type in? Would I use the title merge page?  Tried to type in an arrow said unicode did not work.  Any help is appreciated!

ok hi @Bethanny what do i type in there? it keeps rejecting it.  Can i just type: Emergence 2028 (movie) merge into Emergence 2028: Beginnings (short) (2023) ?  I provided an explanation as well.  I also tried it with that arrow icon and it says unicode rejected it.  Please tell me the exact thing to type into the box, thank you.

@matt_taff​ Into what box? the box for explaining why the merge needs to be done? 
If you are getting an error you can post a screenshot here so we can figure it out.

Hi Bethanny,

I'm Ian Kane, the creator/EP/director. Sorry for all of the confusion. 

Could we have changes on this page (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21229168/) as per the following:

1. "Short" to a 190 min. Feature.

2. The title from "Emergence 2028: Beginnings" to "Emergence 2028."

3. The production status from "Post-production" to "Filming."

Also, could you also please delete this other page? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21116392/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

I appreciate it!

Ian

@TheRealIanKane​ Hi!

I have deleted the duplicate page and changed the title. Please submit a correction for the production status, genre and running time through our online form. Visit our help guides on how to do it.

Thanks!

Thanks!

So when I try to change the title type to "Movie" it's saying the date isn't matching when it is. The original production date was 2022, but I see there isn't one on the film page at all. I'm trying to change it from Short to Movie (it was originally Episodic).

Please advise.

@Bethanny​ The only thing that hasn't been changed is "Short." I requested for it to be deleted yesterday but it is still there. 

Does that take longer or something?

Thanks.

@Bethanny​ Okay it changed. Also, how long does it take for it to display the trailer I submitted? Thanks for your help.

I did steps 1, 2, and 3 then hit "submit these updates" at bottom.

@Bethanny​ Here's the YouTube trailer link: https://youtu.be/b9O-FYsKXh8?si=q7SVrST5u-JjymDq

I also linked the project's website in similar fashion but don't see it anywhere. It is: https://emergence2028series.com.

Thanks in advance for any help.

@TheRealIanKane​ This type of submitted trailer will show under 'External sites'. If you want it to display in the main page you need to submit different. See our help guides for more.

Cheers!

All I'd like to do is add a trailer to the main page as in the image. Does that mean I need to go through the whole IMDb Title Scorecard process?

@TheRealIanKane​ My five cents from experience: for a filmmaker of any level, Title Scorecard is well worth your time and can be very useful for more than one aspect of more than one project.
