Can you give us the submission ID so staff can look into this?

However, the easiest way to get this accepted is to send a screenshot of the credits using data verification:

Hi Joe,

As you originally submitted the data over 4 weeks ago and it has yet to appear, we would suggest resubmitting with some data verification as Emperor mentions.

Joe,

Emperor posted this link in response to your problem:
http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_ver...
Supply links to data verification sources
This form allows you to provide additional information/verification to support the addition of data (e.g. links to documents verifying the eligibility of a title to be added to the database, or to screen-grabs showing how a credit appears in the main/end titles of a film).

Please fill all the fields with the required information; our editors will review the data and make all applicable changes.

At least one link/URL is mandatory -- you need to supply links to documents/images, not cut/paste text into this form.

Fields marked with (*) are mandatory.

As you originally submitted the data over 4 weeks ago and it has yet to appear, we would suggest resubmitting with some data verification as Emperor mentions.

1. Resubmit the information you had submitted previously. This needs to be done on IMDb, not Get Satisfaction.
2. You will get new reference IDs. Enter these into the "Supply links to data verification sources" form. You will need to fill out and submit this form for each of the new reference ID. These are the links you could use:
Green Dragon: https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net...
Low Down Day: https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net...
Low Down Day: https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net...

Note: It typically takes a week to ten days for updates to appear. Submitting multiple update suggestions for same changes within ten days will delay the process.

Did you resubmit it and include the evidence you posted here? If so, and you did it within the past three days, it wouldn't be updated yet, probably. If not, it won't be at all. Posting comments here does not take the place of submitting it properly on the IMDb online forms.

Yeah, we did it right after the advice via board. We were told by production from the film that they even tried to ADD for us and to no avail. I find it very odd.

It can take a week or two to appear.

And you used data verification to submit the evidence when I posted about it? So 18-19 days ago? If so then that should be plenty of time.

So there is another problem. I suspect this is due to our working with insufficient information, so let's break it down.

RotGD just finished filming right? I see it is listed as being set for a 2014 release.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1396523/

Looking it up, I assume the Low Down is this one, scheduled for a 2014 release too:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1864405/

If all that is right, then my first thought is:

* Does Linda Wang have an IMDB entry?

If she doesn't, then I'm pretty sure IMDB won't list her credits until one of the films is released or someone adds a credit for her from a released film.

If she does, then the credit submitters will need to make sure they've requested the credit go to her - ensure the Roman numerals are correct (you can usually use her name ID to ensure the right person is in the form.

If they have done this, then staff will need to check this hasn't gone awry and the system hasn't tried to create a new entry (it happens occasionally).

If this all checks out then it is always possible that the data processing staff might have decided to withhold the credit until the films are out - they can do that, finalising the credits only when the film finally comes out and they can be checked. After all we don't know if someone's role will end up on the cutting room floor and removing credits is more hassle than adding them.

However, if I was a betting man, I'd put a whole shiny silver penny on the fact that she doesn't have an IMDB entry yet.

Anyway, if you could start clearing up those points then we might be able to get a better idea of what is going on, which might help us work towards a solution.

That is.

Can we assume this is the Linda Wang we are talking about? It is never safe to assume.

If so, we need to find out if "Linda Wang (I)" is the one in the submission.

We are submitting "Linda Wang (I)" so why do we need to assume? Odd

I had to assume, because you didn't say that was here - there are a lot of Linda Wang's and you might have been using that as an example. We can only work with the information you provide.

She is now listed on both entries;

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1864405/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1396523/

As she isn't on the full credits page and they aren't on her entry:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0910972/

Which suggests they've just been accepted. The credits will appear on all the relevant pages over the next few days.

Thanks for keeping on this and persisting until it is resolved.

All the other pages have been updated, so (as far as I can tell) the credits are all on the relevant pages now.

Problem solved.
