Incorrect celebrity height listings

Hi, I tried to update heights for Idris Elba, Brendan Fraser, Jim Carrey, Gustaf Skarsgard, Bill Nighy, John Travolta and Arnold Schwarzenegger. I have plenty of evidence to prove the current listings for these celebrities are wrong and submitted the updates but still, they have not been changed. I simply don’t understand why they would believe the current listings are factual but when you look at photos at them with other celebrities and see their own claims, they obviously are not factual.

So if I find the interview where Travolta claimed to be just over 6 feet, is it possible that they could change it? I'm gonna try and give this one last shot and if it doesn't work, I'll be willing to accept the rejection and like you said Ed, I'll move on. Plus I'm actually 6 ft 2.5, I'm a pretty tall guy and Travolta just doesn't give that kind of tall impression to me and so do the others I have requested. Also, Travolta doesn't look to be slouching in any of the photos I provided.

Also Ed, I had a few days ago sent this photo of Paul Bettany and Brendan Fraser to IMDB and they changed Fraser’s height http://m.zimbio.com/photos/Brendan+Fr.... Zimbio isn’t on your list, plus they aren’t showing footwear but IMDB accepted anyway but it’s weird how they won’t do it for the others.

Hey Ed, would this source cut it? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dail.... Even though you said pictures are a bad source, in every shot whenever they’re standing up straight or not, Daniels always looks an inch taller than Jim Carrey. Plus there is a source called celebheights.com which I find to be Incredibly reliable. The guy who’s in charge of celebheights lists celebrity heights based on photographic evidence and has found numerous articles to figure out how tall these celebrities actually are. Jim Carrey is listed on celebheights as 6’ 1.5” and Daniels is listed as 6’ 2.75” and also is on IMDB.

They were declined still! They’re probably never gonna be accepted again anyway. I’ll let you know if they are anymore celebrity heights that are declined and need correcting.

I came across two more declined contributions but it said that it needs attention. What does that mean? Did they not look it over and just declined it anyway?

I added about 5 sources saying Michael Shannon is 6' 3" not 6' 3.5". Also I had a direct quote from Peter Dinklage saying he is 4' 5" not 4' 4" and I had about 4-5 sources saying he was 4' 5".

Also there aren't a lot of sources that state Shannon's height. Pretty much all of them have him at 6' 3" while 2 or 3 have him at 6' 3.5", IMDB's current listing. I feel more inclined to believe that 6' 3" is probably a more accurate estimate for him.

Michael Shannon's 18 number and the sources I used: 190122-215606-907000. https://www.celebheights.com/s/Michael-Shannon-1023.html, http://hollywoodmeasurements.com/actor/michael-shannon-height-weight-body-measurements/, https://marriedwiki.com/wiki/michael-shannon, https://www.celebrityhow.com/michael-shannon/, https://heightline.com/michael-shannon-bio-net-worth-wife/.

Here are Peter Dinklage's: 190122-220237-874000. https://heightline.com/peter-dinklages-height-weight-measurements/, https://starsunfolded.com/peter-dinklage/, https://celebrityinside.com/body-measurements/actor/peter-dinklage-height-weight-shoe-size-age-bio/, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Dinklage.

Also Ed I couldn't find any other sources that said Shannon was 6' 3" except for sources that I thought IMDB would not accept. Also, other sources have him at 6' 2.75" which I think is a bit too short for him. And like I said, only two or three list him at 6' 3.5". There aren't a ton of sources that have a listed height for him so his height is a little all over the place.

I am not sure what an IMDB news partner is Ed. I am new to IMDB I just started in November of last year.

CNN can’t be trusted though it’s fake news. Jk

Sorry Ed but I asked the guy in charge of celebheights.com if he still had the link to the interview from USA Today where Michael Shannon says he’s 6’ 4” and he said that he doesn’t think the USA Today archives are free, so unless someone archived it, he doesn’t think it is freely viewable.

How about if I add the celebheights source where it mentions him saying he is 6’ 4” from the USA Today interview and give an explanation on why I can’t provide the interview. Would that work?

Thanks,
Ian

I found three sources with a 6’ 4” listing for him, one of them is a New York Times article https://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/26/th..., one of them is from The Telegraph which wasn’t on your list Ed so I don’t know if it will qualify https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/f..., and this one which might be one of those sites that characterized as a little site which has no real news on them https://www.celebsdetails.com/%20stat....

Hmmm...it was declined. I guess I’ll just resubmit them with the contribution number. However, Col Needham provided with a contribution tracking list so I’m able to see if it was approved or not and why. It said for Michael Shannon “not enough evidence”. If your confused, I am too because those are two incredibly reliable, trustworthy sources I have provided and yet it was still declined.

I tried resubmitting it again but it was still declined! This. Is. So. Infuriating! Here is the contribution number: 190127-152649-396000. And this is the reason why it was declined: “not enough evidence”. I did everything you told me to do Ed by adding no photographs and providing big reliable, trustworthy sources yet they were still declined. Even you said those were the kind of sources that would almost guarantee an approval from the editors. Due to my high decline rate from the editors, I’m probably never gonna get an accepted contribution ever again because these editors are so overly picky about what evidence I put on there. It’s like I’m trying to help IMDB by providing more realistic information to the public that’s my main focus as a contributor but the editors keep on thinking this information is “factual” are consistently rejecting my contributions. It’s honestly insulting to me.

I’m not sure what you mean Ed. Do you mean resubmit it with the submission reference and add the two links and ask why they were declined which is what I did or create a new post here and ask why they were rejected?

Hi Ian,

Thank you for raising, these sources are more than adequate for the change on Michael Shannon. I've resubmitted that for you now.

Regards,
Will

Thanks for your help Will and Ed. I’ll let you know again if there are any more problems on IMDB that need correcting.
