Adding MPAA Certification Reasons

How can I add MPAA certification reasons to titles that are missing? I used to do it by going to "miscellaneous comments" and typing in the certification but that section is now gone on the update page.

Hello mysteriousbluebox,
Do you mean that the certification is missing or that the title is missing?
 
If the title is missing then you should add it.
 
If the certification is missing then you should add that.
It's there, under Basic data, the entry for Certificate (ratings) Information.

Mysterious: Usually the MPAA supplies the certification reasons directly to IMDb without contributors needing to add that data. (I believe that only in 1990 did the MPAA start publishing the reasons for each rating -- and if I remember correctly, only R-rated films got reasons published at first, and films with other ratings started getting reasons later.)

What films have you found where the MPAA has published certification reasons (such as on http://www.filmratings.com) that don't appear on IMDb? If you list those films here, the staff can probably import them as needed.

Thank you both for the responses. I'm referring to instances where the rating is there but not the reason. For instance on the Deadpool 2 page, it says it's rated R at the top under the title. But if you scroll down the page under "certificate" it does NOT list the reason (which is "Rated R for strong violence and language throughout, sexual references and brief drug material")

I understand these rating reasons are not usually added by IMDb contributors but a lot of them fall through the cracks and are not added. I have a list of about 60 titles that are missing the rating and/or reason; all of which were issued by the MPAA in the last few months. I'll list 5 examples below but please advise on the best way to get these added. Do you just need the certificate number from the MPAA, or do you need the full certificate?

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5463162/?ref_=nv_sr_1
Rated R for strong violence and language throughout, sexual references and brief drug material

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3416536/?ref_=ttls_li_tt
Rated R for drug content and language throughout, sexual references, and some strong violence

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5687334/?ref_=ttls_li_tt
Rated R for graphic nudity, sexuality, and language

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4685806/?ref_=ttls_li_tt
Rated R for language throughout, drug and alcohol use, some sexual content and violence

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063443/?ref_=ttls_li_tt
Rated R for violence including a sexual assault

Hi mysteriousbluebox -

Thanks for posting the five examples above, as gromit82 mentioned these MPAA tags will need to be added by IMDb staff, can you post the full list of all 60 titles missing the MPAA reasons here so our staff can go through them?

Hi mysteriousbluebox, 

I have reviewed these titles and can see that they have now been updated. Those with a rating of 'G' will not have a rating reason. 

Regarding the titles with more than one rating and rating reason, we are able to display the two ratings but are only able to display the rating reason for the first rating. 

Thank you for your understanding,
Meredith

Thank you, Meredith! Does it take a few days for the updates to be displayed? I've noticed a bunch from my post from 2 weeks ago have not gone through.

Also, should I add additional titles to this same post?
