Dixie Days (1930) bad info

This title
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0146628/
has more things wrong with it than I can fix with Edits.
  1. The runtime should be about 7 or 8 minutes. Several copies live on YouTube; here's one.
  2. The photo is irrelevant to this cartoon.
  3. The link to the Amazon Video for rent/sale is to a movie of about the length of the (wrong) runtime.
  4. Amazon Video links back to this IMDb title to retrieve the usual information.
So it looks like someone decided to co-opt an existing title for a vintage cartoon and make it sort of the title for Dixie Days - Mechanicsville 2005 2009, which I have not watched, but appears to be a 2-hour live-action Civil War reenactment documentary(?). Perhaps an IMDb entry is required to offer an Amazon video?

In addition to finding copies of the cartoon on YouTube, I found this data entry that verifies information on the 1930 cartoon:
https://www.bcdb.com/cartoon/3436-Dixie-Days

Could you please restore this IMDb title to its proper status for the cartoon, and perhaps make a new entry for Amazon Video.

Here's a screenshot of title card for the cartoon, so you can see the copyright date matches the release date; perhaps this can be used as the poster for the cartoon's title page until something better comes along:

@ Col,

Since you listed the direct links for me:

Contribution #s

180422-160858-475000 runtime

180422-161133-961102 remove image

180422-161328-438402 remove 2nd copy of image

180422-161454-071502 add image; hopefully I don't need to suggest it become primary, because that wasn't an option within the Add process; would be nice to include it there.

Contact #17810157 Hogg Link Request; to disconnect the Amazon video


It's the "and appropriate forms" that made me post here instead of groping my way through all this myself. Any plans to unify those other 2 steps into the Edit process?

The Hogg Link Request is at least 3 times the work it should be to report a bad link. It's a form for ADDING a product link, and requires that we fill in the exact title, the title id, and the ASIN. I've requested elsewhere that we get something simpler, preferably within the Contribution system.

Hi bderoes -

Thanks for posting all the submission details.  Aside from the runtime update that is still pending review, all the other changes have now gone live on the site.  Cheers!

@Michelle, "all other changes... live" is not quite true. The Hogg Request has moved forward, but is NOT implemented yet.

Hi bderoes,

The running time change has been accepted and the link has now been removed from the title, it may take another day for the link to disappear but please let us know if this is still showing tomorrow.

Regards,
Will

I see all the changes implemented on IMDb now. Thanks!

I wonder how many of the ratings for this cartoon are really from the Civil War reenactment video on Amazon (which still shows the IMDb rating, but naught else from IMDb, nor any reviews on Amazon). 

If any of the followers of this thread are willing, here's the 7min cartoon:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqZ2OpZUqj4
and here's the title page to submit your rating:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0146628/
currently 11 votes, average 2.9, so a few more votes could shift the average.
Monty Python fans might appreciate the few moments of dancing teeth.
Way Down East (1920) fans will appreciate the chase along the ice floes.
It is definitely a racially offensive cartoon, but it has some creative/bizarre moments.
