Hello gary janks
Do you mean that you've registered yourself or that you've made a submission to register your film on the IMDb? 
 
If you've registered your film, please give the submission reference number so the a member of the IMDb staff can check it and see what happened to the request. 

If you haven't yet registered your film then please do so at Getting Started

Hi Steve,

My submission number is 180730-073626-166200 and here is the web site url: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/update?load=180730-073626-166200 I must admit I have updated it from not yet complete to Released and screened/available to the public (or firm date set in relatively near future) this morning. Sorry if I seem impatient. Thank you so much for your prompt response!

Best wishes

Gary, just to make sure: by "my film seen by the public on IMDb", it has to be understood that the data about your film is about to be displayed on IMDb, not the film itself, as IMDb is no streaming platform, right?

Hi, Vincent Fournols. There are some movies that can be watched on IMDb, but they are mostly well under 45 minutes.

Hi Jeorj,

I browsed through the different menu option entries on the home page and could not find a proper one. Could you please lead me? I am curious to see what is on offer.

Hi, Vincent Fournols. Hm. There are a lot of them, but they became impossible to search for when the Advanced Title Search system was "upgraded" in early 2018. One of them is The Werewolf Cult Chronicles: Vietnam 1969. I've not yet watched it, by the way.

You're welcome, Vincent Fournols. As you can see, movies like that are part of the Withoutabox program.

Hi Vincent, yes agreed, absolutely, just the data about the film i.e. it's title etc.

Hello Gary, 
Yes, you're being a bit impatient. The Submission Reference of 180730-073626-166200 tells us that you submitted it today (30th July 2018) at 07:36:26 (BST). You need to given the IMDb staff a chance to check your submission, hopefully approve it and add it to the database. That can take longer than a couple of hours.

Dear Steve Crook,

Here is the post I have just put on your site:

Dear Official Reps at IMDb,

I registered my film 2 weeks ago and was told it would only take a few hours or a few days but 2 weeks later nothing has been done, here is my proof: 180730-073626-166200 PLEASE, PLEASE would the staff at IMDb register Chasing Mandela's Rainbow today... PLEASE? 

(In fact Col Needham, an official rep said this to me, "Since this is a new title contribution, you may use the "Track Contribution" button in your Contribution History at https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history/ to see its status." Since then nothing has happened.) 

Steve you said I was being impatient, and respectfully, actually, after two weeks patiently waiting, that is not the case.

Thank you for your kind attention and prompt action today.

Best wishes and kind regards,

Gary Janks

Hi, garyejanks. Good idea for you to have followed up on this. So, your title registration submission has neither been approved nor declined? Did you provide evidence of eligibility?
