First before I state the problem at hand I want every to know I tried every search possible I could think of to see if there was a posting, thread or anything else here already. If it is here I do not understand how to find it using “Topics & Messages” and then “All Forums” and here are the search choices I used:

What I found that was close is:
wrong name on actor guide – This one does not apply
found another incorrect name – This one has this statement by Blae: “Fixed, though next time please post it in one of the existing threads. A new one for every person would be kinda too much”. – But he does not say what the correct thread is?
Please Fix This Person – This one is closed for further postings.
Duplicate shows and people – This is not a duplicate so it does not apply.
Middle Name – Does not apply here
Bad Name – Talking about a title search

Searches I used:
Bad name
Correct
Correction
Fix name
Incorrect name
Name
Name correction
Name error
Please fix
Star name
Wrong name

If this problem is in a Forum somewhere I cannot find it and I searched for over an hour because I am tired of someone telling me: “It has been fixed but next time please use this link _________ to the correct forum to post this type question/problem to”! Why can we not have an alphabetical listing of every Forum that can posted to? This way we can go down the list very quickly to find the correct one if it is in fact here and then this type of problem could be avoided a lot more often.

Anyway I need for someone to please correct the name for “Robin Wright” to “Robin Wright Penn”. “Robin Wright” is her AKA that she used for awhile early in her career. Thanks for your assistance.

I know you didn't want anyone to do this, but: In the Bug Reporting forum, one of the pinned topics is Please Fix This Person! Which deals with duplicate or incorrectly spelled people.

Well I would not even go to the "Bug Reporting" section because this is NOT a Bug. It is a name that someone, sometime submitted and did it incorrectly, Not a Bug . A bug is a site problem not a bad submission problem so I totally disagree and it would be inappropriate to be in any other section but "Help & Support". I am asking for some "Support" to please "Help" me fix this Stars' name that someone submitted incorrectly and it should have never been approved. Thank you very much! If no one wants to bother with fixing it and just wants to talk/comment about where is the right place to put this then so be it!(L) (*)

There is a topic in the Bug Reporting forum where you can go to deal with your queries.

Regardless of where it is located, requested changes are reviewed there. That’s all I need. I use to post mine in the Editor Forum, till I realized it was a general user type thing.

And to me, it is a kind of bug if there is a duplication, or name error here. JMHO.

Sorry if this bothers you.

I too agree that the Bug Reporting Forum is misnamed for what things we do with it...

BUT I have conceded the point and I now use it to requests fixes to input errors, as should everyone else.

Ron, I have fixed her name.

Thank you very much Mac and thank you to everyone else for your input. Mac I just found another one that the name is "Technically" wrong at least according to imdb.com, tv.com and wikipedia.com as well as some others. This one I am the "Editor" of but I cannot see where I have permission to correct her name? It might have been me that originally submitted her name wrong I cannot remember? If it was me, I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Can you please change “Tiffani-Amber Thiessen” to “Tiffani Thiessen”? The name of “Tiffani-Amber Thiessen” is one of her many AKA’s. Thanks again, Ron.

Renamed, and as the others said, naming/dupilcate/etc. people problems should be posted here, though they're not technically a site bug.
