Quite a few days, film genre for AIRLIFT (2016) is again in ACTION. I've complaint here that its not Action film its ADVENTURE. Now its again action and edits are not accepted. Secondly, films READY (2011), CHENNAI EXPRESS (2013), HOUSEFULL 3 (2016), SULTAN (2016), R..RAJKUMAR (2013) the edits of ROMANCE genre has been removed consistently. Why its getting deleted as they fall under romance category as well. Although AIRLIFT is I repeat NOT AN ACTION FILM. Later the movies ive mentioned has Romantic angles to prove its romantic comedies. Please do have a look here.

Hello Harshad Chopra,
When did you make theses submissions? What's the submission reference number of some of them?

Have you given enough time for them to be checked, implemented and for the changes to be made in the database?

Mr. Crook i have added them. But again Romance genres has been deleted in hour or two by another illiterate chap! But i will make the submission for las time and i will give you them. As for AIRLIFT, I had spoke to Michelle that AIRLIFT WAS IS AND NEVER BE AN ACTION. Theres only a single action scene which doesnt define action.

So do you mean that the new genres were added and shown in the web interface but were then removed?

What was the submission reference from when you submitted it?

Just because someone disagrees with you is no reason to call them illiterate.

Please check these reference numbers 180506-180714-885000 (Airlift 2016), Housefull 3 (2016) (80506-181441-605000), Chennai Express (2013) (180506-181712-404000), Ready 2011 (180506-181856-674000). I've added Romance (corrected genre in AIRLIFT) in each. Now someone will remove in hour or two. Mr. Crook I'll like to inform you that I'm not wrong and if some chap doesn't agrees with me doesn't mean you term them right. Please keep these numbers in reviews as per your request! Thanks.

Submission references starting 180506 were only made earlier today (the first 6 digits give the date as YYMMDD). You need to allow more time for your submissions to be processed.

I can't see your submission, only IMDb staff can see that. I'm not a member of the IMDb staff, just a regular user albeit an experienced one.
You shouldn't need to do anything, including asking questions here until your submission has been processed.
You can see by the page at Processing Times when that can be

Also the genres has been updated. Make sure Airlift does not become ACTION. Can I know why Troy and I Am Legend edits not been approved on Action and War genre? Both have massive amount of scenes. Please revert....

Thanks Harshad. Generally if your genre submission was rejected it is because there may be elements of that genre contained within the film however it may not qualify as it is not an integral element of the plot and the film may be better represented by other genres.

Please note that the genre should relate to the main driving force behind the story arc, any sub-plots may be better represented via keywords. For more details please see here https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/genres/GZDRMS6R742JRGAG?ref_=helpsrall#

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will
