Couldn't change the title of our animation film

Hi everyone! 

As an animation studio and production company, we did stuck with the problem. The fact is that we have a page of our animation film “The everlasting story” on IMDB https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14974602/?ref_=rvi_tt

But the title on this page is incorrect right now. Could you please help us as soon as possible? We tried to change the title by ourselves but it didn’t work. Also, we have our site, so you can check that we're not fake https://parovoz.tv/en/koshchei

Hi Parovoz -

I can see that "The Everlasting story" was recently added as a new alternate title on title page.

Can you confirm what text displayed on the title card for the first release?  If the title was first released as "Koschey: The True Story" we will need to retain this original title, however, if the film was later released under the title "The Everlasting story" this can be added as an alternate title to the applicable regions (ie. USA title, French title, etc.).

@Michelle Title card is in Russian actually:

So (original title) must be the transliteration of this Russian title. Which is this: Koshchey: Nachalo (or Koshchey nachalo without separator but general use is with seperator on sources)
"The Everlasting Story" can be display title for countries such as USA etc.. I guess if that's the final English title.
But "Koschey: The True Story" also should stay as (working title) because there are lots of news reports that refers it with that name while it was in production. It should not be deleted completely.

@Michelle Since you ignore this, I went ahead and made some edits by using this title-card screenshot. Instead of pressing that approve button and appoving my 100% correct submission, the editor who (poorly) handled the submission went ahead and made completely incorrect and inaccurate edits all by deciding arbitrary against the evidence, including changing (original title) to English title.

Hi, @mbdb!

We would kindly request you to stop editing the page of our animation film. We've asked the IMDB administration to change our title to "The Everlasting Story".

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for helping us!

It is not about first and second releases. The actual title of our film is "The Everlasting Story" and the title "Koschey: The True Story" is the incorrect one. The text displayed on the title card is "Koschey: The True Story" rn

How can we fix it?

Also there is the image that we want to delete, cuz of incorrect title (We attached it). We've about five reports with asking to delete it, but it's still there.

Hi all -

Apologies for the delayed reply.  As per our policy, the primary title should be the original title, in the original language. I have made the applicable adjustments so that the original title associated with the first release will be correctly displayed.

As films may have multiple titles (as is true for this film) I have adjusted the attributes for the applicable alternate titles to better explain when and where the alternate titles have been used.

Lastly, regarding the image removal request, unless the image is in violation of our Guidelines, we will need to retain the poster image on the site.

Cheers!
