Trying to merge two names and it is rejected. Don't understand why.

I tried merge two names in the IMDB.  They were the actress Bo Derek (I) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000137 and Bo Derek (II) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10896567 .  Bo Derek (II) has no credits whatsoever in her IMDB profile, so I attempted to merge them as I thought (II) was an accidental copy of (I).  My submission #200919-005150-995000 was rejected.  I have merged several names previously where one had no credits and they were usually successful.  Can anyone tell me why that hasn't happened in this case?

Hey Justin - I went to check this out and the second Bo Derek leads to a 404, and has been deleted in our back end. 

 

Thanks for letting us know about this duplicate, though it looks like somebody else resolved this for us.

Maybe (II) is not as empty as it looks. I don't see uncredited acting credits, but maybe some other category?

The second name entry was probably created via IMDbPro. Haha.
