Trouble editing a page
I'm trying to update the information for Goblins Animated.
The series is in development. No episodes have aired yet. The page was created in 2015 when the project was first announced. In 2019, the series creator came out as transgender and changed her name from Tarol Hunt to Ellipsis Hana Stephens. She very much wants reference to her old name removed, but the page lists it as "credited as." This is incorrect since, again, no credits have aired and the series official website credits her as Ellipsis Stephens.
Since there are no episodes yet, only the series page exists. She is the writer, producer, and character designer for the full series. So the edit should be made at the series level. When I go to do that, I get a red warning that the automated system will not accept the edit unless there's a date range specified. That seems wrong, but there's no way to submit unless I do.
So, fine. I put in (2015-) as the date range, since she's been working on the project that whole time and will continue to do so. But then I can't submit the edit without acknowledging that the date range shouldn't be there. I agree. I put in the notes that staff should remove the date range but that I was unable to submit the edit without it.
The edit was denied because they were unable to verify, despite the information I'd provided. Fine. I provided more information. Then it was denied because it was improperly formatted. But there's literally no way I can format it correctly without the system automatically denying it before staff can even review.
The information on the page is factually incorrect, and it's harmful and upsetting to Ellipsis who is traumatized by her old name. I've tried fixing and resubmitting the edit several times now, but it's always rejected no matter how much information I provide and no matter how I format it.
All I'm trying to do is change "Ellipsis Hana Stephens (as Tarol Hunt)" to "Ellipsis Hana Stephens" in four credits on that one page. How do I do it?
