Background bibliography for Trivia and Goofs: Need secondary area to submit.

Recent a trivia item I submitted for A Star is Born was rejected for "lack of info". Trivia does not have an area in which to submit bibliographical information (although in this case, commentary articles from the 60s could be hard to find on the internet). I don't believe posting a link to my blog interviewing a person familiar with the entertainment industry would quite be the backup necessary. How do we submit such information? I want to submit an anachronism for Captain Marvel but without a method (other than posting to Get Satisfaction, from which I often don't) for bibliographical information (which I did find), my submission may get rejected.

Well, it would not violate guidelines to use any particular style of citation, as there no reference to such things either which way. In general, the information to be mentioned includes article title, author name, collection title and publication date, maybe publisher name, maybe one of the well-known libraries in which it can be found.

Just to note, the old title literature pages did have a particular style, though.

Hi Phillip,

Thanks for your message, are you referring to an evidence field to cite a source?  This isn't available at present. If you have a specific trivia item or goof submission that you wish to supply evidence for, please provide the 18 digit submission reference and the details and I'll be happy to take a look.

Regards,
Will

A little stutter typing my name, eh? :) The rejection reason "Not enough evidence" is not valid without the ability to GIVE it. Item is #190120-182740-068000. I've found an interview of Barbra Streisand talking about people bugging her to get a nose job, but not the comparison yet. I'm leery of making my Captain Marvel submission because I might get this response if the screener is unwilling to do the research (or feels politically motivated like the star to ignore our world history).

Hi Philip -

I reviewed the rejected trivia item and noted that we will need further source details to verify the information before we can add the item.  I see that the trivia is concerning the mention of a physical trope in "A Star is Born", do you have links to verify the claim concerning Barbara Streisand and Sophia Loren?
