I have added many credits in the past but none of the new ones I've submitted for 2018 are being added.

Hi, Mike Roey. Please present the submission reference numbers of all the edits that never went live, so that the IMDb staff can investigate the reasons. Bear in mind, they might ask for evidence to affirm the accuracy of the submitted information of yours.

Hi Mike -

Concerning 180628-185000-617000: These credits were not approved as our editors reviewed the on-screen credits for this show and were unable to verify the on-screen 'in-house producer' credit you submitted.  Additionally, please note that there were formatting errors as Producer credits belong in the 'Producer' section and not under 'Miscellaneous Crew'.

Looking at all the remaining credit updates you referenced, the same issues mentioned above apply to these submissions.  The credits were submitted under the incorrect section and our editors were unable to verify the credits.  You will need to re-submit the credits with the correct formatting, please also note that if your name was not credited on-screen you will need to include and "uncredited" attribute.

Additionally, if your name was credited on-screen for these titles you will need to post screen grabs to evidence here (such as a screen grab featuring your name/role credited on-screen).

I understand.  Yet, this just started occuring in 2018; before that, i never had any issues.  A co-worker of mine who does the exact same job and has been submitting the same exact credits the same exact way, has had no issues in 2018.

okay so to confirm, i have to now add all my credits under the "producer" category and not "miscellaneous" even though my current credit exists that way for all other shows i've worked on including previous seasons of existing series AND my co-worker is still able to add her in house producer credit in "miscellaneous" and i'm not, correct?

Most - if not all - your ”in-house producer” credits are now in Miscellaneous Department. I’m not all that familiar with this job title (can you perhaps explain a bit more about it?), but IMDb should probably first confirm that ”in-house producer” belongs to Producer Department, and not in Misc.

(Well, maybe Michelle already did. Not fully sure.)

i work at KEEP ME POSTED, a post production facility in Burbank.  I oversee post production on a host of shows guiding them thru dailies, online, color, vfx, titling, and delivery.

i'm fine doing whatever you guys would like.  It would be nice to just have consistency though: to match all my other credits and my colleagues.

Hi Mike,

Apologies, in-house producer credits should be listed in the miscellaneous department. Just to clarify, if you are not credited on screen you should enter in the following format: "(in-house producer: Keep Me Posted) (uncredited)". This will avoid any confusion which could lead to rejected submissions.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

Hi Mike -

I reviewed your submissions and noted that you did submit them with the correct formatting, however, they were rejected as our editors were unable to verify the information.  I understand that your name wasn't credited on-screen for these titles, however, if you have any evidence to help verify your participation, please post the screen grabs here and our staff can take a look.

Alternatively, if you prefer to provide evidence privately, please review the instructions on the following guide: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/how-can-i-submit-additional-veri...#

what kind of proof can i send you?  i work at a post house called KEEP ME POSTED as their Senior In-House Producer.  i haven't ran into this issue on the previous credits on my IMDB page nor have my colleagues who are still having submissions accepted as in-house producer the same way that mine are being rejected suddenly now.  Again, i do appreciate your time and help.  i'm just frustrated by the inconsistency.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your patience with this, hopefully we can get a resolution to this soon!

As you're not listed within the end credits of the productions, verification should include proof of employment - this can come in the form of pay stubs, receipts, call sheets or contracts for the productions, any mentions within the media of the role on the production from reputable third-party sources. 

Please upload these screengrabs or data somewhere on the Web where we can access it (we recommend a free image hosting service like imgur.com), these will need to be publicly available and cannot require an account to login. You can then send us the links/URLs pointing to it via the following process: 
    1) Find your original submission in your submission history (https://www.imdb.com/updates/history). 

    2) Verify that all the data is still valid. If you need to update/amend the information, you can do so and resubmit the entry.

    3) Make a note of the update reference number (it's the number composed of three groups of 6 digits separated by dashes, e.g. 121027-090001-134000

    4) Go to this page: https://help.imdb.com/contact and select the options for IMDb Fan/Contributor Questions > Filmography Credits > Provide credit evidence  

    5) Fill in the form with all the information (the update reference number and all the URLs pointing to the additional verification for that submission). At least one link is mandatory. If you have more than three, use the 'comment' field to add them. 

    6) Enter any additional information, comment or feedback in the 'comment' field. The more data/evidence you supply, the better. 

    7) Submit the form.

Once we have this information, our editors can review this further for you and if eligible, will add the credits for you. 

Thanks,

Joel

Joel,


Thank you for your response. I hope you can understand my frustration. For the last ten years, IMDB has updated my credits with no issues and now all of a sudden it won’t. Nothing has changed on my part (same title, same way I’m updating); my colleagues at my business are doing the same thing but all their credits are still being updated.


I have credits that you guys have rejected for multiple seasons for series that you have already accepted the previous season’s credits for from me. There just seems to be no consistency.
