Are name and title links allowed in the Supplementary Info bar on the Awards form anymore?

------

Reference Number:
190902-021832-769000

Items were approved. However, two of the recipients which included the series' episode page links in the Supplementary Info bar were not processed. Both were published with just the name of the episodes and no link.

--------

Reference Numbers:
190828-070705-643000
190828-064909-968000

Items were approved. However, none of the series episode page links in the Supplementary Info bar were processed.

-------

If this is an updated guideline, please add a statement on the Awards help page that links (tt, ni, co) are not allowed in the Supplementary Info bar and that contributors should write the name of the episode without links.

The page below is an example of how the episode page links were published in the Supplementary Info section.

Hi GMJ -

Concerning supplementary information, we don't link to a persons name, if someone is a nomineethen they should be added in the nominee filed in the form, for titles, we are accepting of and will link to episode titles but we won't link to regular titles. 

Our guide was recently updated to include this information (see point number 12):

If you need to add supplementary information relevant to the win/nomination, you can to this in the Supplementary info box.
   • Unsure what to add? This field can be used for things like song titles, episode names, names of un-produced screenplays, etc.

I hope this helps!

Michelle,

Clarifying my previous posting, the three updates were to add specific episode title links in the Supplementary Info section. As noted, the series and episode title information appear on the official awards page. The Supplementary Info section for the three updates was not processed.

I'll be sending a message on this matter through the IMDb Contact Us form.

Thanks.
