Because my last post has comments disabled
I will try again as no rep has given me an answer
Not sure if they are too lazy but I have submitted plenty of outline corrections, new outlines/summaries and have also submitted deletion of exsisting outlines

My new outline submissions have been approved but still are not showing even after a few weeks
Some have been approved and are alreadly listed under the respective title and some have been approved and are not showing? All these submissions where submitted at the same time so I dont see why this is the case
I also submitted an edit to an exsisting outline and my user name has not been credited with the update

I have submitted deletions of outlines and there are no reasons given to why they are being declined when the exsisting outlines are blatantly incorrect or poorly written. I can't find the page to give a reason to why they should be deleted so a link would be greatly appreciated

A rep needs to sort this out please
I have attached all films I have submitted with their reference numbers for clarification
Further investigation is required for approvals that are not showing
I will need a comprehensive reason and info about my submissions and if it isn't to my liking I will continue to ask until they are shown
I have submitted deletions of exsisting outlines for these films below too:

Casino Royale edited exsisting outline and my username accreditation not showing

Licence To Kill, The Living Daylights, Spectre, Terminator Dark Fate, Xmen Dark Phoenix, Ransom, Terminator (1984) and Die Hard (1988)
Deletion of exsisting outlines and my new approved outlines are not showing

One problem could simply be the lack of explanation/proof. If someone really feels that the (existing) Plot Outline is blatantly incorrect, has spoilers, it’s written like a bad PR piece or critique - or something else why it should be changed/replaced/corrected, the box for...

”Provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission”

...should be ticked. I mean in many cases it could be very difficult (impossible even) for the IMDb data editors to know why the existing Plot Outline is ”wrong” and why the new one is better/more appropriate. Only way is to explain the reasons for the change.

Hmmmm. Remember you said this was not possible?
Care to comment. Why are you giving advice on a reason why in an explanation box to explain why the authors name should be changed when you told another person in this forum that it was not possible to change a plots author? You said "Read the rules"
I made this same reference to an older topic, and you debunked it as "Out of context"
Well here it is again "In Context" Thanks for creating a sea of confusion EBoy.
