I need to get my credits combined. They used my real name and stage name as 2 people. How can I do this?

I was in a series called XArm in 2012 and used my given name of Buckley Acosta. I now go by Buck Acosta and would like to add the credit to my newest credit in Blacklisted this year. How can I do this?

Go to the page for Buckley Acosta at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5711311/. Click "Edit page".

On the next screen, on the Name Correction or Merge line, select "Add correction". Scroll down and click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a blank line on which to enter the corrected name. Enter it as:
Acosta, Buck

Leave the checkbox that says "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Buckley Acosta)'" checked.

In the Explanation box, enter something along the lines of "I am Buckley Acosta, and I am the same person who now goes by my nickname of Buck Acosta. My future credits will be under the shorter version of my name, Buck Acosta." Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "You are about to merge two separate name pages into one. Are you sure you want to merge this person with Acosta, Buck?" That's what you want, so check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background, and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Good luck!
