My credit on the show is not approved by iMDB

Why is my credit on the show not approved by iMDB. Never happened to me before. I see even "Park Patron" was able to add themselves. Why me, as a day performer is not able to add my credit?

Tanya,

Please post the 18-digit reference number so an IMDb representative can review the submission and respond.

Thank you.

I tried different times and different character names. Although the correct name on my call sheet said Passer's Wife, which is a reference number above. 
It's a first time ever my solid credit is not being accepted. Please explain why. Thank you!

What is the status (pending/declined)? And if declined, what are the reasons given in "view details"?

Not pending, not declined. It's been about 13 days now.

I do not understand: what is the status then?
Is it showing on that page in the first place?

Are you sure it was actually submitted? This can be testified in https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history

I see it at the history. Where can I see the actual status?

Does it appear in the "Saved updates" or "Submitted updates" section?

"Submitted updates" : first column - reference number, second column - date and time; third column - Name of the show, episode, underneath "Cast - 1 credit added"

Nothing else...

OK thanks. And that submission  190215-164210-879000, which appears on  https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history, does not show on  https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history?

Vincent, not sure what you mean. The second link you provide doesn't work
after I click on it (https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history) - shows Error lending page. 
Submission appears on https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history

OK, that's unfortunate.
So we have to wait for an IMDb staff to review your issue.

Hi, Tanya. What is the 18-digit reference number of the filmography item addition submission that appears to have been declined? Have you taken care to add all of the appropriate attributes?

Also, when is the last time you submitted an update that successfully went live? It is possible that submission reviewing may have not been as strict back then as it is today. Alternately, your past submissions may not have been always adequately accurate, which can negatively affect your contributor accuracy rating.

Hello,I had never had a problem adding/deleting things before. This is my recent credit that production did not add yet because of lack of time. My agent told me to go ahead and add my credit, so it appears on my resume. My few fellow actors from the same episode were able to add themselves. Even lady extra added herself as "Park Patron". I was a Day Player and not  able to add myself...Strange...

Hi Tanya -

I just reviewed your filmography and noted that your credit as 'Passers wife' on the episode of "MacGyver" has since been approved and is now listed: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9690582/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

Anytime you encounter an issue where our editors have been unable to verify your credit, I would recommend that you provide additional evidence to us, you can find additional details and instructions on the following Help guide: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/how-can-i-submit-additional-veri...#


Cheers!

Thank you, Michelle. It was never a problem before until this one. I am glad it was resolved.
