Question about external review submissions (description field)
When submitting an external review, I know it is the general procedure to include the name of the website in the field "Description".
But I saw for example here, that the fifth entry is https://oenek.substack.com/p/guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-3-2023 and described as A Celebration of Cinema [Oene Kummer]
"A Celebration of Cinema" is the general headline (s)he uses on their blog and I kinda like the idea if the name of the website is not too catchy.
Is this allowed as well?
A few days ago, I submitted 2 or 3 external reviews and they were altered apparently by imdb staff to include the name of my website (instead of the headlines with which I submitted them) when I actually would have preferred the headlines being listed the way it was handled with Mr. or Mrs. Kummer's blog.
Can you bring some light into this? Would be appreciated.

I would add that as "A Celebration of Cinema [Oene Kummer]" too because that appears to be the name of his blog, so that's a correct way to add it.
Can you give a few examples of what exactly you added and how it was altered? If you mean you included headlines of the specific reviews, that would be wrong.

Hi @Horst -
Can you post the 18-digit submission reference numbers associated with the External Review items you submitted that were altered? Once I have the submission details I can investigate further.

Thanks Michelle, I came up with a workaround and got pretty much all accepted.
It would be still nice if you could take a look at:
These are the only two external reviews I could not get approved. Not sure why.
Reason: Does not meet contribution guidelines.
Afterwards, the topic can be closed.
