Acknowledged

I'm the director of the film and can't change the release date - Reason Unable to verify.

I've submitted an edit and got the below message. I went to the "Contribution History" page and the "provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission" option is nowhere to be found. 

Can someone help me how to correct my release date? I need to submit my film to multiple film festivals. 
Thank you for your help in advance.

It looks like you are adding "production status updates" as release dates as seen here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12120380/releaseinfo

Deleting release dates can be pretty hard. I had a look and it looks like you are right, it was never released or completed yet. I hope @Michelle deletes both release dates and then you should stop posting status updates to the release dates section. You should use the "Production / Development Status" data type for that purpose. You should only submit a release date when it was completed and screened or released to the public in some form.

Wow, thank you so much!! Yes, you're right. This is my first time using IMDB and made some obvious errors. Thank you for pointing that out. 

@Michelle can you please help us and delete both release dates? 

Thank you for helping us in advance!

@soochyun You're welcome. I don't know why @Michelle passed this thread by marking it "Acknowledged" without solving anything, you even provided submission numbers. I suggest you to open a new thread and refer this thread to get attention of her again, because otherwise this thread may not be visited again.

In the history page you should click the reference number to load the edit. You can also start over from the film's page if you prefer.

I did. The page does not have the "provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission" option, and I do not know how to verify that this is the legit edit. 

I've submitted this same edit numerous times, but I get the same answers from them over and over which I can't follow through.

Please post one or more reference numbers for your contributions so IMDb staff can look into them.

You can also post the explanation or evidence here if you wish.

Please delete the release date: 26 January 2020. It was created by an error. 

Here's the proof that I hired the editor this year.

I'm really at my wits' end. I guess, no one from IMDB checks this message. 

There's no possible way to update my release date as it seems.

@Michelle could you please help us delete both release dates from here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12120380/releaseinfo 

Please refer to this topic: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/im-the-director-of-the-film-and-cant-change-the-release-date-reason-unable-to-verify/6182c40c3a9f396d8e61d270?commentId=618c1cd23a9f396d8e64bdfe

@forthehorde suggested I open a new thread and refer to the previous thread to get the attention again.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi soochyun -

Apologies for the delayed reply.  I have now removed both incorrect Release Dates from the title page, these should be removed shortly.

Cheers!
