Hi my film: https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt6631454/?ref_=nm_nav_ov_knownfor_2 was originally listed as a TV Series, however due to lack of funding the original "episode" will just be released as a Short. How do I update this information? I tried to do it through "Edit Page" but was unable to.

Hi, Quentin Lee Murphy. In order to accomplish that which you seek, you should submit a title correction whereby...
"The Bench" (2017)
...is replaced with...
The Bench (2017)

Also please add the genre "Short" at the same time.

Hi Col, I noticed the genre "Short" and "Thriller" were already listed. It's just the TV series annotation and the release (2017-) that I'm trying to get rid of.

Hello everyone, so I made the above changes a few weeks ago and I also submitted it to the data editors (which I saw would take 1-7 days to update) but the changes still have yet to be updated on the IMDB website. Please help.

Quentin,

Please share the18 digit submission ID, so an IMDb staff car review it.

OK, and what reason did IMDb give to reject your submission?

"The project was originally intended as a series but will only end up being a short film and needs to be listed in the appropriate category."

That's the reason for the request to being with. What is the reason for it being declined?

I don't understand your question. I have not received any notification that the request has been declined. My understanding is that this update is still waiting to be processed by the data editors so I'm trying to get an update on the delay.

Quentin Lee Murphy, it does not come in the form of a notification. The reason for the rejection of the specific submission should be visible among the content found at https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/190117-052330-747000, which only you and the IMDb site authorities can view.

When I clicked the link you provided it states, "Details about your contribution are not currently available." So I went back to my original submission and it states the following, "This is the submitted update 190117-052330-747000 from your update history. The update has already been sent to IMDb so there is usually no need to resubmit it." Additionally all the fields below that are green. So I don't understand what you are seeing that shows it has been rejected.

Well, so far I had never encountered or heard of that statement: "Details about your contribution are not currently available". I am afraid you were kind of unlucky :(

An IMDb staff should be around and give you a feedback, now that you have provided the 18 digit submission ID.

Meanwhile, could you share a screen capture of you full submission from your contrubution history (not the update history), so we can see what you edited (with the Before/after display).
It may have to do with the change from a TV series title, which has to be put between double quotes, and a feature or a short title which is without these double quotes.

Hi Quentin,

Thanks for reaching out! I've noted a release date is currently attached to your title; is this date incorrect? You can find it listed here.

Should the release date be Apr 29, 2017 (internet) and not "Nation wide in cinemas".

Maybe Elizabeth can alter that then, save a lot of time and trouble a non-employee trying to change it.

Yes, absolutely. Also, will she be able to change from TV series to short?

I don't see why not. Sometimes though staff are too busy, I see you've been having problems changing the title did you follow Jeorj Euler instructions.

Understandable. That's why I was hoping I would be able to accomplish it.  Yes I did. I removed the quotations.

Let's see if Elizabeth has time to make the changes. Otherwise it may need looking at again.

Hi Elizabeth,

The release date is correct. The pilot was screened in 2017.

Thanks Quentin, I've accepted the change of title type. If you wish to update the release date to the more complete option please feel free to do so by using the edit page feature at the bottom of the title page.

Regards,
Will
