In Progress

Changing title from Short to Music Video

Hey there, I've spent hours trying to figure this out. I expect it would be MOVIE TITLE (2020) (MV), but it's not listed in the tips and trying that only gets a rejection.

Additionally, adding or updating poster images hasn't been effective over the past 24 hours. Does it normally take a while to update? I read something online that made it seem like it should be instantaneous.

Thanks in advance.

You can always click ”Edit” to any title to check the title formatting if you’re not sure. So you need to add ”(Music Video)” after the year.

For example:

Nightwish: Bye Bye Beautiful (2007) (Music Video)

Thanks @eboy 

@DanBringhurst to assist with improving our online help, you mentioned difficulty in finding the format details.  May we ask where you searched and where you were expecting the help to be located?  

For example, a search for “music video” on https://help.imdb.com  should have led you to https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/title-formatting/G56U5ERK7YY47CQB 

Thanks.

@DanBringhurst  We just spotted that the in-line help for title corrections was never updated when we added music videos, sorry.  Was this where you were looking?

@Col_Needham​ It is. I honestly just went to change my page settings, found the "Change Title" at the bottom of the list, and discovered it didn't list (MUSIC VIDEO) there. But yeah, instructions certainly exist elsewhere, apparently. I'm not sure why I couldn't find it when I searched Google so much.

We just spotted that the in-line help for title corrections was never updated when we added music videos, sorry.

That's curious, I pointed out that in Music Video Title Type announcement thread 9 months ago and Rachel said she updated it: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/launch-announcement-music-video-title-type/6196642797253660be7945ce?commentId=6196e9e197253660be794e86

Like I said there when I reported it, Podcast information was already present in correction form text but now both info is not there. Maybe accidentally it was reverted to a past help text at some point?

@DanBringhurst​  Thanks for confirming and sorry once again.  As @mbmb points out (thanks), we did fix this once already and it must have been accidentally reverted to a previous version (something actually not that easy to do, but as Sherlock Holmes would say … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0708697/quotes/qt0383867).

When the version that mentioned podcasts was there I pointed out several errors. Most of them also appear in the current version.

@Peter_pbn​ Sorry about that.  A new ticket covering all of this is now open (ref: Content-Q&R-2334)
