Attempt to conform writing credits to on-screen credits rejected because it "could not be verified"

I'm trying to correct the writing credits for the 2020 "Will & Grace" episode "We Love Lucy" -- in particular, the omission of credits for the original writers of the "I Love Lucy" scenes re-created in that episode. For each credit addition I submitted, I included, for verification purposes, a link to a still image of that writer's actual on-screen writing credit on this "Will & Grace" episode. All these images of the on-screen credits are even displayed on the episode's IMDb page! And to verify the order numbers I proposed for each writing credit, I included a link to the video of the episode on Hulu, with a reference to the time code at which the writing credits begin (3:17).  Nevertheless, IMDb declined each of my contributions, claiming that none of them could be verified.

What further proof could IMDb possibly want?

My initial submission (the one you got approved) left out Bob Weiskopf's writing credit because I ran into the "10 additional credits" limit. So I submitted a new correction to add his credit (#211208-223921-240000), including a screenshot of his credit, and it was just declined (reason: "unable to verify"). Can you get this approved as well?
