Accepted contributions keep being undone!

I have submitted two verified and accepted contributions. The contributions show up on the site. But two days later the accepted contributions are undone again.

Submissions in question are:
#200510-022719-845000 (accepted and approved twice now)
#200512-152949-447000 (accepted and approved twice now)

The contributions are verified and accepted. Either something is wrong with the website or people keep undoing the verified contributions. Can you make sure the contributions are accepted and protected?

We need imdb to be a credible source of information. If people keep changing it back the wrong information imdb will become obsolete.

Sounds like you're in an edit war with someone. While you're waiting for an official response, why don't you tell us exactly what the contributions are. Maybe one of us contributors can shed some light on what is going on.

Hi Hopper For President you probably got sucked into an edit war with another editor. I've had it happen to myself recently -> what's likely happening is that it's one of the "IMDb Top editors" who is at war with you and whose edits get approved instantly (vs. for us regular mortals we have to wait for whatever is the allotted wait time for each type of contribution in imdb rules). The way it looks: you submit an edit, it takes X amount of time for your submission to get approved and be displayed on imdb.com, but then the "IMDb Top editor" comes in and they revert your edit and their submission goes live instantly. Look at this thread for instance to understand how such edit wars unravel on imdb.
