Glitch in submission approvals?

I have been updating the soundtrack items for the animation series, "Ginga eiyû densetsu" (1988)  (tt0096633). I was basically adding links to composer’s names, all the soundtrack items being classical pieces of music.

There are 110 episodes, of which one had no soundtrack items and two others had all the links in place.

I completed this task and then went back over my submissions to ensure that they were all correct. I have been known to make minor typographical errors, which invalidate the links.

Of the 107 submissions, the majority were complete and approved.

There were 7 consecutive submissions that were had an anomaly in the processing. 


190522-213712-042000   22/5/19 21:37

190522-213730-861000   22/5/19 21:37

190522-213749-282000   22/5/19 21:37

190522-213842-770000   22/5/19 21:38

190522-213854-836000   22/5/19 21:38

190522-213915-469000   22/5/19 21:39

190522-213944-382000   22/5/19 21:39


Six of them had every item declined – see example below.  My reading of this is that my updates were not necessary as the links were already in place.

I found this strange, as this was not the case when l looked at the soundtrack lists for these episodes. I understand it is possible that someone else managed to submit updates that were accepted prior to mine, causing the rejection of my submission.  But it is strange that it is just for these submissions, which do not follow in episode sequence.

The seventh submission (fifth in the list above) is still “Pending”. Given that I have completed over 70 other submissions since then, it is strange that this one, of the all "Ginga eiyû densetsu" submissions, is still pending.

Am I just being  too precious? Or has there been a glitch in the processing of submissions?

Further investigation of the above "Pending" submission ...
190522-213854-836000   22/5/19 21:38
reveals that it shows as "Pending" only when I use the 'Track Contribution' button. When I visit the actual soundtrack page, the items have been approved.

So this may be a glitch in the 'Track Contribution'  process.

Hi Graham -

I can see that these submissions were rejected as duplicates because there was another user who had submitted the same Soundtrack items that were pending at the same time as yours. 

Concerning the submission you referenced for #190522-213854-836000, the Tracking system is correctly reporting the status of this submission, your updates are still pending review by an editor, but the names are linked on the site because the data was already corrected by another user whose submission were approved prior.
