Punctuation/spelling errors in submission guide

There are two errors (each appearing twice) on the page at https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/production-status/GBBBPNJHFZZKY7W9# as follows:

Two of the headings say:

How to update a titles Production Status

and

How to remove a titles Production Status

In both of those headings, the word "titles" should be "title's" with an apostrophe.

Also, there is a quick link labeled

Available production status'

and text that says:

We don't allow historic production status' to be removed ....

The plural of "status" is "statuses". In both cases here, it should say "statuses" instead of "status'" -- there should be no apostrophe here.

@Michelle​ Could you please check on the status of this ticket? It has been more than six months since I started this thread and you responded to it.

Michelle: Sorry, but after seven months to correct these minor spelling and punctuation errors, not all of them were corrected at https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/production-status/GBBBPNJHFZZKY7W9# .

The first two items I mentioned, inserting the apostrophe in the word "title's", were indeed corrected.

However, the first quick link still says:

That should be "Available production statuses".

And the other item I mentioned now says: "We don't allow historic production status; to be removed ...." (Emphasis added.)

They changed the apostrophe to a semicolon, instead of just changing the word to statuses which is the correct plural of "status". No punctuation is needed in that word.

Since this thread has been marked "Solved", I've started a separate thread at https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdbcom/punctuationspelling-errors-in-submission-guide/62e5ca0127c9e55d81c7a259 to address the remaining problems.

Hi @gromit82 -

my apologies for the delayed reply.  I have reopened the update request for these missed updates.  As soon as they have been addressed I will confirm the status here.

@Michelle​ From what I can see, they were already fixed thru this new thread: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdbcom/punctuationspelling-errors-in-submission-guide/62e5ca0127c9e55d81c7a259

So there is no need for a new ticket.

Michelle: mbmb is correct. The corrections were already made per my request in the other thread. Nothing more is needed as to this thread.
