Death Date: Is it me? Is it The New York Times? What?

Why is IMDb not accepting and posting this?  Is The New York Times NOT an acceptable source for obituaries?  Does IMDb not have access to Google?

Hi bradley_kent -

I can confirm that the death date has since been added to the page for "Rosmarie von Trapp".

Concerning your initial submission, I can see that it was likely declined because The New York Times evidence link you provided redirected to an article but immediately a subscription prompt displayed, making the article unreadable without a subscriber login.

As our editors cannot review evidence where a login is required, for future submissions it is best to instead upload a screen grab of the article displaying the information so that our editors can easily access and verify.

I hope this helps!

Alternatively he can also provide an archived link as they are archived without paywall prompt.

For example, this link is viewable without any prompt: https://web.archive.org/web/20220519231620/https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/18/arts/music/rosmarie-trapp-dead.html

I am stunned that IMDb does not have a New York Times subscription since it is a major source of death dates, birth dates and other info.  It only costs $4 a month, introductory offer. Would you like me to buy you a subscription?

Besides, doing a Google search can easily verify almost all obituaries by just entering the name of the person who has died. Too easy, I guess.

Here's another one:

Death date is on line, but not birth date, and the submissions are only a few minuted apart!
