My contributions are being rejected without explanation

My contributions are being rejected without reason. Here is one example #190417-001235-446000 It says "Needs attention - We were unable to approve this contribution.We didn't capture a specific reason during processing." What does this even mean? I used the New York Times as my source, which is surely credible enough to warrant processing. At the very least long-time editors like myself should receive an explanation WHY contributions are rejected.

Hi Camille -

I can see that this birthdate request was not approved because our editors were unable to verify the information at the link you provided.  The New York Times is a reputable source, however, a subscription is often required to view their articles, so it's very likely that while we were able to access the link, we may not have been able to access the content to verify.

If you have access to the full content, you can take a screen grab and post it here and I will be happy to take a look.  Otherwise, I would encourage you to re-submit the birthdate with additional sources that can be easily accessed by our editors and they can take another.
