As himself

I have made a few attempts recently to submit celebrities appearing as 'Himself'/'Herself' in the Actors section but they haven't been approved and aren't showing up on the relevant pages, even though I've done it numerous times in the past without problem. Is there some new policy that I'm unaware of where appearances of this nature are listed elsewhere? If so, how should I submit them?

What kind of appearances are they? There is a rule that sometimes the performer's name should be used instead of 'Himself':

"Where someone is billed in the credits as Himself/Herself in a fictional piece and are playing a scripted, fictional version of themselves, we use the performer's name as the character name to avoid moving the credit to the 'Self' category even if the credits say Himself/Herself."

Otherwise give a few examples of contributions here so IMDb can check them.
