*In May I posted the Hulk and King Kong spoofs for 4 titles of each, but only 5 out of the 8 that should be there are gone which I'm trying to repost. You don't need to ask what I'm trying to say as it's the same thing as the other Hulk and King Kong spoofs listed.

Does this episode really spoof each and every version of these specifically and individually, or is it just a reference to the characters rather than the titles? I suspect that the point about 'generic references' towards the bottom of the connections guide may apply here.

That's definitely the issue here. CuriousUserX90, please note "just because a character mentions Bond/Harry Potter/Frodo/etc. does not mean a reference to a specific Bond/Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings title or even all of them." This of course also goes for King Kong. In other words, if a title refers to King Kong, there's no movie connection you can add, unless the reference is to a specific King Kong film (which most of the time, isn't the case).

If all 4 King Kong and Hulk titles can be listed as spoofs for these respective episodes, there's no reason why it can't anywhere else: *https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8373324/movieconnections
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10782926/movieconnections (PS I can't leave paragraphs for some reason)

Did you see the connections go live and then vanish, or did they never appear?
You may want to post the 18-digit Contribution number(s) (since you said Repost). You can even find the original(s) here:
IMDb: Contribution History
IMDb staff usually need those number(s) to follow up.

If you've submitted again recently, check the date of your submission against this from the Processing Times page:
https://contribute.imdb.com/times
Connections Gold 11 September 2019 409
meaning they still have 409 connections to process dating back to 11 Sep.

Those movie connection spoofs of King Kong and the Hulk and King Kong now finally up again, featuring all 4 King Kong and Hulk titles: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10155902/movieconnections

What someone else posted as a movie connection for that episode which parodies Iron Man is also now up.

Have you read my earlier reply in this thread? These titles should NOT be listed in the movie connections page for this Ducktales episode. A *general* reference to King Kong is NOT a reference to a *specific* appearance of King Kong. (see: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/movie-connections/GNUNL9W2FTZDGF4Y#). In other words, how do you know if a reference to King Kong is a reference to the 1976 film and not a reference to the 1933 or the 2005 film? If you don't know, you can't add any King Kong title to this Ducktales episode.
I advice you to read the guidelines and submit deletions for these movie connections.

King Kong has been spoofed and referenced for many years, you should see how many titles it's been listed in the movie connections of for many years:
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024216/movieconnections
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074751/movieconnections
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0360717/movieconnections
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3731562/movieconnections
Whenever there's a moment of climbing a building, climbing a building whilst carrying someone, and swinging at airborne things surrounding the building, that's something that parodies King Kong. Even the trivia section of that episode's page mentions it, as do numerous other sites on the internet, their one the places to help us with what to post as Movie Connections on IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10155902/trivia
You should be lucky that those movie connections that disappeared after May that I'd been trying to repost for the past few months are now finally up again.

The last date I posted those movie connections was on Monday of last week, meaning that they came up sometime right after I posted this about what I'd been doing between Monday and Saturday.

Have you checked the guide I linked to? Have you read the following of it?

I again advise you to send deletions for them, based on the above.

Delete them and all other stuff I posted into the Movie Connections for DuckTales episodes I shall not, Movie Connections are what they are, clearly you have no idea how many titles are listed on the movie connection pages of the King Kong films. Fellow IMDB Contributors who see those movie connections on the pages for all DuckTales episodes wouldn't mind seeing them there either, I've been posted to all of them for many months, the info I get from seeing Trivia Pieces, watching the episodes myself, and from many sites across the internet like wikis and TV Tropes: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5531466/episodes

Read what Marco is saying.
According to your theory.........and pay very close attention here............Charlie Chaplin was swinging from things WAY BEFORE King Kong ever was.
So King Kong is a spoof of Charlie Chaplin.
Your reasoning has no basis in logic. Please take advice given and not discount it.
Marco's advice is correct.
Your Movie Connection is incorrect.

I already said Delete them and all other stuff I posted to Movie connections for DuckTales episodes I shall not, that's not even my movie connection or anyone's movie connections, it gets posted and edited by different people. Saying those King Kong movies shouldn't be Movie Connections for that episodes is saying like they shouldn't be for this episode:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8373324/movieconnections

I'm keen to know how to delete or disable replies to my IMDB Get Satisfaction Posts, since what I've talked about now has been solved. Simply I do not want any more replies to this very post, it doesn't really matter much about what sort of movie connections you see on IMDB Pages.

One last thing, remember this is IMDB we're talking about, just about anything can be posted to it without a reliable source. But whatever movie connections you do see on any page, it's best that we leave them be, IMDB Contributors worked hard to get them up on the movie connection pages whether they're correct or not:
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024216/movieconnections
*https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074751/movieconnections

The fact that people worked hard on them is totally irrelevant. If something is wrong, it should be fixed or deleted.

The web is constantly saying that IMDB's not reliable and don't except sources from there, primarily due to anyone being able to post stuff there legit or not: https://www.reddit.com/r/shameless/comments/akk22j/imdb_is_not_a_reliable_source/

We shall leave the movie connections on every DuckTales episode be, there's 50 episodes and the movie connections on all 50 of them have already been up for months. I'm beginning to regret bringing this up, especially as they did finally manage to go up after my attempt to repost them on Monday last week.

The WEB?
That is NOT the WEB saying.............That is an Idiot posting his opinion!

due to anyone being able to post stuff there legit or not
You are one of the many causes of concern my friend. You obviously have no concept of interpretations of IMDb Policy, and as such are making the database inaccurate.
You ARE the "able to post stuff there legit or not" one of the people that reddit.com article was referring to. YES......YOU!

If you cannot submit reliable data as you have admitted to above, than please DO NOT submit data if you cannot understand the policies in place here. STOP.

Stuff mentioned from before I joined IMDB in 2015 couldn't be referring to me, IMDB has had millions of contributors since the Internet first came to be in 1990:
*https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_IMDb
*https://www.quora.com/%E2%80%A2-Is-information-on-IMDb-reliable
*https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/whose-reviews-should-you-trust-imdb-rotten-tomatoes-metacritic-or-...
*https://style.mla.org/movie-information-online/
*https://movies.stackexchange.com/questions/16037/are-imdb-ratings-objectively-credible
And I do post legit stuff to IMDB mostly with trivia items, even editing them to make them sound legit/for them to sound more like trivia then news/to add in the missing qv links. Quit making me look bad and saying false statements already.

If you don't want to look bad, play by the rules IMDb has made for their database. I've pointed them out to you. Have you read them? Do you understand them? Do you see why the movie connections you talked about should NOT be listed?
The fact that other people/websites have an opinion on IMDb is fine, they have a right to, but that doesn't change the fact that IMDb is a database trying to have as little errors as possible.

To repeat what I said about Movie Connections on all DuckTales Episodes, delete them I shall not be doing. It is clearly you have no idea how many titles are listed in the Movie Connections page of King Kong, the ones I'm referring to in that are no different: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8373324/movieconnections

Fellow IMDB Contributors who see the movie connection on every DuckTales episode don't mind what's listed anyway, they'd have probably listed it themselves if they had the chance. You haven't even said the same thing about the other movie connections listed on this page, it doesn't matter much what you see in movie connection pages: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10155902/movieconnections

CuriousUser, please answer my questions. You say people are making you look bad, but you don't help yourself if you don't answer simple questions people ask you.
Also, you make an assumption by stating I have no idea how many titles are listed in the Movie Connections page of King Kong. You don't know that.
Another assumption you make is that all IMDb (not IMDB by the way) contributors won't mind these wrong movie connections. I actually think they do mind, as it goes against the guide.
My advise to you: answer people who ask you something and try to avoid assuming things (which is hard for all of us because people assume things very easily).

This is the last time I'm saying this, these DuckTales movie connections are not getting deleted, and no more replying to this page which I'm asking to have deleted. Is there any part of that that you don't understand?

Is this your handiwork?
If yes, it is wrong.
If it is not, why have you not removed or edited it for correctness?
It is for the 1987 DuckTales


It is clearly NOT for an Animaniacs episode.
Its for a Pinky and the Brain episode.
Why is it not fixed?
If you are so passionate about this...............

I was not even born when IMDB first came to be you know, not everything posted to IMDB is even my doing, it would've been too much for me, these Movie Connections post stuff that no even I knew about, nothing that had been on IMDB before 2015 is my doing. IMDB is run by millions, I'm only among one of them, you're simply making me look bad with false statements.

Nobody is doing this. We haven't said anything about you that's untrue. Also, we asked quite a bit of questions instead of stating things. Unfortunately, you haven't answered them all. Did you read the guidelines regarding movie connections?

I do know what I'm doing and am very well aware of IMDB's policy, but you had no right to think posting such movie connections was a waste of my time, something you can't do anything about. What has been wasting my time though is having to deal with something only you're telling me about on this post that I don't wish to be around any longer.

This post really needs deleting or having replies disabled, replies I've been getting in the past couple of days are starting to make me look bad with what's being said.

This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies.
