Name merge addition declined: unable to verify

A friend of mine has two separate entries on IMDB, and I'm trying to get them merged.

Ticket is #211130-231934-296000.

The submission was rejected as "unable to verify", so I resubmitted with a link to his wikipedia page which includes the names on both of his entries; his full name and his preferred, shortened name. But it was again rejected "unable to verify".

What sort of information do I need to provide for this to get verified?

I used "they are the same person" as the reason both times, and both got declined. One credit is "Tim Kirk (II)" and the other is "Timothy Tobin Kirk", so they're different names but not completely different. Unfortunately his wikipedia page is the only place where both of his names are listed together.

That's good to know that it automatically rejects anything with a wikipedia link!

I've submitted again with both names listed in the reason section. Hopefully that'll help somehow.
