Fixing a changed name for the character Theron on 300. He's NOT Traitoro.

I have been on a bit of a hiatus from Imdb, and just returned and checked a list of mine. In one, I name the character "Theron" (played by Dominic West) from the film 300. It appears that someone has abused their privilege to change Imdb information by naming him "Traitoro", which is NOT the character's name. Now, when viewing my list, it appears as if I have included a character named "Traitoro".

Can this please be corrected and investigated who made up this silly name to include on the character's profile? Thanks!

It says Theron on the cast list I'm looking at:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0416449/

The issue is that when you click on the character link you get the page for Dominic West's character in 300 but also the parody version from Meet the Spartans, who is called Traitoro:
http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0002519/

No one has edited the page to make it like that, it has been done automatically, although quite what the criteria is eludes me as you think the name would go to the version of character from the better known work. If you click update it says the entry is for Theron from 300. All a bit odd. It might be staff can give it a kick and fix the name issue or it might fix itself.

I know it's like that on the cast profile. But not here on my own list:
http://www.imdb.com/list/wW-YJfHEhHQ/

I went to the character myself to see if I could change it, and there are two radio buttons. One for Theron, one for Traitoro. I guess what I'm wondering is how this can change on how it's reflected on my list, and also, how does anyone allowed to go in and change information like this on Imdb?

As I say, no one has changed this information, it seems to have happened automatically when the second character was added from the spoof (which is presumably right).

It might be staff can get it changed so the display name for the character on the character profile is Theron but as it is showing as Theron in all the right places it might not be too high a priority.

It looks like the character name is now showing as Theron everywhere, as it should be.

If you are still seeing it wrong anywhere, let me know.

Thanks!
