How can I remove release date on my unreleased/never screened film?

My documentary has a year next to it (2014) which implies it was released or screened that year. It has never been screened and is still in post-production status. I submitted an update to IMDB to reflect this, meaning either remove 2014 or update to show Post Production staus but it has not been fixed. Is there something else I need to do or can the folks at IMDB look into this please? Thank you.

Hello James,
Your film has a Release Date of 1 December 2014 in the USA.
You need to remove that first. Then, when it doesn't have any release date listed, it should be shown as 10 Gold Medals (????)

You need to give them time to check, approve and make any changes, these thing don't happen instantly when you make a submission.

Thanks Steve, I asked IMDB to delete it 12 days ago. Still hasn't been updated. How long do these things usually take? Thanks again.

What’s the submission reference number from when you asked for it to be removed? Steve

Hi James -

I reviewed your submission to remove the 2014 Release Date and noted that it was rejected.  If the title wasn't screened in 2014 (online, private screening, festival, etc.), please resubmit your request this time including a detailed explanation as to why the 2014 Release Date was listed and why it now needs to be removed.  With further context our editors can then re-review your request.

Hi Michelle,

I re-submitted the request see below but it still hasn't changed. Do you have any insight into this? Thank you.

(IMDb update receipt #180328-172036-003000 My film 10 Gold Medals was never screened anywhere online or in a festival and I do not know why it is listed as released in 2014. It is clearly and unequivocally an error. We did complete a chunk of filming in 2014, but the editing of the film was never completed. As sometimes happens as an indie filmmaker, life got in the way (I had a child) and other projects took precedence. Now that I have more free time, I am in the process of finally completing my film with the hope of getting into a small festival or two and a release of some sort - and my desire is for the IMDB page to reflect this accurately. Thank you.)
