Editions not covered by contribution history

Hi,

This is a question mostly for IMDb staff:

https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history might still need some fine tuning in terms of layout and response precision, but it is proving an extremely useful tool for contributors.

Nevertheless, it (still) does not cover all types of editions, at least the ones which can be performed by hitting the "Edit page" button (I leave the requests aside, which must be channeled through the contact form at  https://help.imdb.com/contact)

So far, I have identified awards edits and Title corrections. What are the other ones not covered?
And is there any time schedule to implement them?

Thanks in advance for your feedbacks.

Hi! Vincent Fournols

Too late to change Title to
"Staff: Editions not covered by contribution history"

Are they listed in the 'Old' list ? ?
https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history

If / when  the Staff reads this

Suggest this one more time.. Change / add

Thanks ACT, but I don't think it really matters since I also expect that some contributors are aware of data types whose editions are not monitored/covered by the contribution history.

In the last day or two, a list of known missing items has appeared at the top of that page... not sure if it's a complete list, but I can't think of any other missing items off the top of my head.
Note: Certain types of contributions do not currently appear on this page, including contributed awards, companies, title and name corrections, title and name merges, title akas, connections, and cast/crew completeness. This is a known issue, and we will update on Get Satisfaction when it has been addressed.

However, this statement is not true: Title akas ARE monitored indeed.

Hi Vincent -

I will reach out the applicable team operating the Beta Contributions to confirm, as soon as I have an answer from them I will relay the information here.

Hi Vincent -

To confirm, the Contributions Beta includes only the following data types:

trivia
title
image
image character link
image name link
image title link
parental guide
faq
plot synopsis
user review
image language
image country
name relation

All other data types are not included in the Beta.

I think that list is outdated. The beta page currently also includes cast and crew credits and many other types.

The beta page has been discussed in detail in this thread:

Hi All -

I just checked with the team again (as the info previously provided was for a different Beta), apologies about that. 


To clarify with the current details, the Contribution Beta here: https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history will show nearly all contributions, there are some data types that are broken and mentioned on the Info note at the top of the page.

As Peter mentioned above, if you have any feedback, questions, bugs to report, or just want to follow the progress of this feature, it's bet s to do so on the following Get Satisfaction thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/anybody-notice-the-new-track-contribution-screen-now-shows-a...
