Movie Connections (Round 2)

Recently Maya submitted movie connections on my behalf for “How 13 Props Are Made for Movies and TV” (2022) (V) that were declined because "did not meet our formatting standards."  For this video, I listed the Type as “features”, listed “Other Title” and supplied a “Reason” (usually “film clip”, though sometimes I’ve used “poster” as appropriate.).  Those with the "poster" reason were accepted, but "film clip" were not, even though I'd successfully submitted hundreds of similar connections.

Anyway, the Bot (or IMDb staffer) is at it again - accepting movie connections with the "poster" reason, but rejecting connections using "film clip".  I've reviewed the submission guidelines and don't see what's wrong with "film clip", though I'd be happy to use another term if there's a preferable one.  In any case, here are the videos that have had movie connections rejected over the past several days.  Could someone please post them, or tell me what I need to do going forward to avoid this problem?

While we're on the subject, here are a handful of other videos where the movie connections using "poster" were accepted, but the "film clip" connections are listed as pending.  I suspect they will be rejected soon as well unless an IMDb staffer intervenes.
