*updated* GOOF DECLINED?! TWICE NOW? Seriously can someone help explain to me why? Please?

So my contribution was declined for not meeting contribution guidelines.  Does that mean I wrote it wrong, put it in the wrong "Type", or is it saying that this goof is not a goof?  Some clarification that anyone could provide would be welcomed.

Here is the GOOF that I submitted as a 'Revealing Mistake' for the movie BAD MATCH (2017):

@ 00h 19m the voice of Harris's boss clearly changes between lines. At first it is the voice of the actress who plays her (Noureen DeWulf)... then it suddenly sounds like an Alexa AI voice sniping in to say, "And I'm gonna need 500 words on Waldo's Scented Matches by Friday, got it?"

*edited to include my second attempt/second rejection as well, written with the suggested correction*

(at around 19 mins) The voice of Harris's boss clearly changes between lines. At first it is the voice of the actress who plays her (Noureen DeWulf) then it suddenly sounds like an Alexa AI voice sniping in with the line, "And I'm gonna need 500 words on Waldo's Scented Matches by Friday, got it?"

This HAS to count as a goof, right?  The character's voice switches from human to an AI 'text-to-speech' (that sounds exactly like an Alexa) within the very same block of dialogue, from one sentence to the next.  It is impossible not to notice.

What is it (again) that I can fix so I can re-re-submit this?

Here is a link to watch the movie streaming free on TUBI It is at the 19 mins and 34 sec mark exactly.

And 1st attempt contribution number:   240523-235940-528000

And 2nd attempt contribution number:  240525-113051-056000

Have you successfully used the format with the @ before? I would suggest changing it.

FromGoofs:

Please use the format (at around xx mins) or (at around xh xx mins).

I dunno actually.  Hadn't considered that.  I'll try amending it with the formatting you quoted and see if that was the problem.

@Peter_pbn​ Nope.  That didn't work either.  Got declined again as "Unable to verify" despite me providing a free link to the movie, a time code, and description.  I don't get it, I see so many nebulous "goofs" that got approved (like "He said over there but pointed over here") yet this particular goof isn't being accepted.
