Why is it so difficult to add a new title

Can someone please explain to me why it is so difficult to prove that a film I am currently shooting actually exists in the eyes of IMDb? I get told to upload a call sheet, do so, and then get told is isn't sufficient evidence. I explain that the film switches aspect ratio, and both aspect ratios get rejected because the other one was rejected. I explain that the film is in both colour and black and white, rejected for the same nonsensical circular reasoning. Do I need to fly a rep from IMDb out to Australia to visit the set? Why is this so hard for a feature film in production, when "Untitled (XXXI) (in development)" can be listed without any problems?

"Your contribution has been declined.Your data referred to another item which has been declined or deleted, and this means that your data will not appear on the site. If you also submitted the original item and believe that it still warrants inclusion, please review the submission guide and resubmit."

Yet not a single "item" which refers to why ANYTHING was actually declined. How much of a circle jerk is this reasoning?

Would this problem be happening if I was paying to be a member of IMDb Pro? Somehow I don't think it would...

Hi LevonJP -

Can you confirm if this is regarding the new title request for "Emu War: A Subtle Examination of the Sheer Caucasity of Colonialism (????)"? 

If so, I reviewed your most recent new title submission and was unable to locate any additional supporting evidence provided within the form to help verify the title's eligibility.  For additional information about what additional evidence to include I encourage you to review our Help Guide.

Once you resubmit the title with additional supporting evidence our editors will take another look.

Let us know if you have further questions!
