American Dad Voice Credit Addition Failures

To whom it may concern,

For the past several weeks, I have been adding the cast credits for new and old episodes of the animated television series American Dad. I have corrected or added to the credits for multiple episodes of previous seasons without problems, but lately I've been having some issues with adding names. Specifically, for the past five episodes I've done, one name from the list, usually a more well-known "famous" guest star, has repeatedly failed to go through. I've resubmitted the credit addition with pictures of the end credits which show their name, but I still can't get the credit to go through. I keep getting a notice that the editor or algorithm cannot verify this actor's participation in the episode, even when I post a screenshot of the end credits in the explanation box. Needless to say, this has started to frustrate me, so I wanted to come here and ask: Am I doing something wrong specifically? I've never had this problem before, and I make sure all the information I add is accurate, and yet this is the fifth week in a row this has happened. This has also started to be a problem with episodes from past seasons. 

For instance:

For the episode "Faking Bad" from 2013, I've tried adding a character for Haley Joel Osment (The guy at the bar who Stan tries to get information about the fake ID kingpins from before he and Stan go rolling around on the beach) but I've been unable to get it to go through. I'm not sure how to prove which character he is aside from saying I recognize his voice from the 10 movies of his I've seen and the countless hours I've spent playing the Kingdom Hearts games.

For the episode "Roger Passes the Bar" from 2014, Bailee Madison has a voice credit at the end of the episode. I've tried adding her credit, including by posting a screenshot of her name in the end credits, but I keep getting told this information is unverifiable. 

For the episode "Little Bonnie Ramirez" from 2021, Cree Summer's credit for the episode got repeatedly declined despite the inclusion of a screenshot with her name, even though everyone else's went through just fine.

For the episode "Flush After Reading" from 2021, I thrice tried to add Annie Murphy's credit to IMDb but got thrice rejected for being unverifiable, even though all the other credits went through just fine.

For the episode "Comb Over: A Hair Piece" from 2021, I tried three times to add Chris Pine's credit to the list, including with screenshot of name in explanation bar, but was again denied for being unverifiable. Now I see the name is up there, but without a character listed. I've tried adding his character (the Hair Transplant Surgeon Roger hires to operate on Stan using hair provided by Tuttle) but nothing goes through with this either.

For the episode "Family Time" from 2021, I added all the cast members, but for some reason, Stephanie Beatriz's credit was thrice refused, even though I posted a screenshot with her name in the episode's credits underneath "Also Starring: Laura Bailey, Troy Baker". Laura Bailey and Troy Baker's credits went through just fine, but somehow Stephanie Beatriz's was unverifiable. Her credit along with character (Chardonnay) has since been successfully added by someone else.

For the most recent episode I've added, "Cry Baby" from 2021, all of the cast except for one person (Natasha Rothwell as Carol) have been added. I've been thinking of resubmitting her credit with a picture of her name in the credits, but I'd like to get an opinion on whether there's something else I should be doing here. 

In fairness, I have succeeded in adding some credits. Two weeks ago, I finally managed to add Travis Willingham's credit to the 2016 episode "Fight and Flight" after eleven previous attempts. I don't know what I "did right" in this case, but I'll take it.

Anyway, if I can get any advice on what to do about this issue, I would deeply appreciate it. I apologize for the long-winded post, but I truly don't understand why this keeps happening or if this is all my fault.

Thank you.

Hi constantine_booras -

Can you post the 18-digit submission reference numbers associated with the above declined cast credit updates?  Our staff can then investigate further.
