Duplicate Images

There are six duplicate images in the following gallery, each with the the same lone name tagged: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0384605/mediaindex

I sent five "Report This" updates using "Duplicate" as the reason for removal, explaining they are the same as the first instance the image was uploaded and providing a link to that image for comparison and as the one to remain.

All five updates were rejected. The reason? "Not enough evidence. Your contribution has been declined.We have been unable to verify your contribution. Unfortunately we were unable to accept your submission as we were unable to verify the information provided. Please see our Help Site for further information or details on how to contact us."

Because...you don't believe your own eyes? Some other perplexing explanation?

This has happened before to me before and it's a waste of time. All six images are exactly the same dimensions, size, and content. I checked the properties and details of each.

If you aren't going to honor or process "Duplicate" updates then why bother including the option?

Sorry about this.  Please can you post the 18-digit contribution IDs from https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history so we can investigate.

Hi Carter,

Thank you for reporting, it looks like the error was caused as these are resume images. I've now removed the duplicates and contacted the user.

Regards,
Will
