Susanna (jb_slasher) | 50 comments Problem: two profiles have been created for one author. One profile is for Marko Nenonen and the other for Nenonen, Marko. What's the policy on these kind of double profiles: delete the "wrong" profile?

This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments They should be merged. Edit the "Nenonen, Marko" profile so the name appears as "Marko Neonen" (which is the correct form). This will start the process of merging the profiles. GR will then ask you which you wish to keep: Choose the correct spelling and voila!

The one thing to note is that if there is information about the author in the incorrect profile that you want to keep (it is not in this case, but for future reference) then you should either (a) copy the info into the desirable profile before the merger, or (b) actually choose the incorrect name as the one to keep during the merger, then edit the incorrect name to be correct.
