My film credits updates are continuously being denied with excuse of "not being able to verify." Even after providing proof.

The latest is Reference 220613-224459-358000.

I spent approximately 1 Hour correcting 36 cast credits of Dushmun ( 1971). 

First of all, IMDB , now in this age, in 2022, still have hundreds of Films (Generally Asian, definitely Indian) with wrong cast credit listing order. These credits - the wrong order of credits- are not even awaiting to be verified, they are magically verified !!! And when people like us to try to correct the order, they are denied because "IMDB is not being able to verify." They were able to verify "wrong" cast credits order which surely have no verification documents, but when we try to bring in the correct order, "Sorry, Not able to verify." Funny.

I provided a public YouTube link of the film in question where the title credits clearly appear, and my content update could have been easily verified. Still, seemingly, IMDB staff is blind to more convenient verification. This is a disrespect not only to me, or any contributor who spent hours to enrich IMDB, but to IMDB itself

Hi aquarianbd -

I can confirm that your credit updates for "" have now been approved and the changes should be live on the site shortly.

Cheers!

Hello @Michelle  and other IMDB staff,

It  has happened again. After posting here about  my credit update information always getting denied illogically on context of "could not be verified" ( even after offering proof in my explanations), IMDB/ @Michelle  intervened. My update was re-submitted by IMDB and this time it was accepted.

Encouraged, I updated the infos of another film (previously declined on the context of "could not be verified")and gave screen shots of the credits from my downloaded version of the film, as proof/explanation. But again "declined" because "could not be verified." ( reference 220615-205345-916000 )

there is a very very small chance that my uploaded photos didnot upload properly (but even if that miraculously happened, I could have been asked to provide secondary screenshot uploads instead of declining the whole contribution).

Do I need to post here every time after getting denied unnecessarily? May I know why I was denied before and this time? Is this a friendly interface?

Hi,

I posted here  8 days ago. No replies yet. Neither is 25 credits accepted, or any explanation given

I actually dont know if someone is liable to give an answer, or it just depends on someone's kindness to help the contributors. At least I would like to know that, because one cant demand "kindness" but one can demand a logical answer , a solution-if someone somewhere is accountable. I would like to pursue this if IMDB considers "contribution supervision" an accountability. It would be great if someone let me know.
