Hi all,

Thank you for your patience during the recent closure of title FAQs, Parents Guides and Plot Synopsis sections and apologies for any inconvenience caused during this time. The good news is that regular contributors to those sections can now edit them again.

If you do not yet have editing abilities please bear with us - we are actively exploring options to turn this functionality back on for a wider set of contributors. In the short term, if you find inaccurate or inappropriate content in these sections and you cannot fix them yourself, please let us know by posting a message here containing a link to that page.

Kind regards,
Tom

Yep, good to see its back, but not sure for how long, removed atleast a dozen remaining spam..looking good but its a shame the process led to all the titles being removed from our 'watchlist' but i assume those that were removed were cleaned up so all good..btw, could you remove the spam from here? I don't think any user can remove those..

Looks like they are still targeting message boards and now have a new site ...

Uhm, Deleting their profile, does not actually delete their spam on the message boards..Isn't there a fast way for an admin/staff member to fully delete every edit made by an account..atleast to the message boards? If not, then maybe the boards are in need of an overhaul/update..

btw, the IP for the new spam site is 104.236.66.209 which is owned by Digital Ocean, Inc. ..Please message them here to report about abuse via these bots..

It took me 3 months to be able to get back on after my email changed. You charge me $19.99 for 3 months. Tonight I was finally able to change my email and get back on. It recognizes me as Keith when I sign in but all I get is 30 day free trial I cannot access the site to use it without clicking on 30 day free trial I've already wasted $60 on this I really think that I ought to get it back. And since this is something that I need to use in my work regularly I really should get extra. But I just want to be able to get on the site and use it please tell me how. Thanks Keith

I would like to suggest an addition to a parents guide, but I do not have editing access. Is there a place to make suggestions for a parental guide?

Under the Sex and Nudity category of the Parents Guide for Vacation (2015), I'd like to recommend adding: "One scene and two photo snapshots of men with an obvious bulge in their shorts". 

Although the film contains several sexual innuendos, I thought this one was important to include for parents with young girls.

Can someone please unlock the FAQs for all Lee Neville Entertainment projects? They haven't been updated in ages. I need to remove information that is available elsewhere on each project page, as well as update them.

I wish to access FAQs for all my projects to update them but now I can't. Seems silly since they are my projects and I wrote the original FAQs anyway. Any ideas?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can't Edit Parents Guide?!.

Why can't I edit 'Parents Guide'? I edit those the most and I keep them as accurate as possible but in past few weeks no option edit option has appeared for me at all?

Has editing been blocked for all people? Is my IMDb having a glitch?
Anybody know or can help?

Having seen my post merge onto here and a line from the top :-
"... good news is that regular contributors to those sections can now edit them again."

I've had nothing. Just checked. I still can't edit the parents guide. It is something I enjoy editing after watching a movie or television programme so can update with as much accurate useful information for parents or other interested people.

As it says above, if you're one of those who does not yet have the option, you can post the details here so someone can add it for you.  It's a temporary work-around until they've completely ironed it all out.

I was able to add content advisory for parents until some weeks ago; suddenly I am unable to do so. I believe it is important information and is not always udated; I do not understand why I cannot add any longer

I have noticed many instances of things that shouldn't be in the Parental Guides, mostly opinions on subject matter rather than the facts of what is in a movie.  I've seen religious opinions and judgmental statements about something in a movie.  Those should be removed since the guide is only for facts and not opinions.

However, I cannot edit the Parental Guide.  I've submitted a few goofs and stuff on TV shows and had them approved, but what does it take to be able to edit the guide?  I'm not out to vandalize it, just correct the information in it.

My account is verified, but I can't edit the Parental Guide.

If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

In that Parental Guide, under 'Sex & Nudity' it states:
"A man goes to a woman's house to commit adultery. Just before he steps into her house, he corrects his choice and leaves."

I have a concern about this.  First off, it's obviously written by someone with a religious view and they are expressing that view in their editing.  

What I most have a problem with is the "...he corrects his choice and leaves."  I believe it should just say "He changes his mind and leaves."  or something similar.

The comment about committing adultery is a bit offensive, since, I believe, only a religious person would use that term in describing it.  I'm not even sure if this 'warning' is even needed, since it has nothing really to do with sex or nudity.  Since the scene is simply someone going to someone's house and then leaving, is it necessary to include it?

I've noticed a lot of things in the Parental Guide like this but I can't edit it to correct the information.

Please fix this.

Thank you.

I have fixed that one, yeah its indeed odd, sadly there is no way to find every 'swiki' edit made by a user or I would try to find out how many similar parental guide changes that user has made..that change was made 5 years ago..see his board posts, religious indeed.. this is why everyone should not be allowed to edit IMDb swiki pages..

Thank you.  I find things like this all the time, but until I can edit, I can't do anything.  I don't even know who did it or when.

Trying to make edits to Almost Married.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2375597/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg

Can't see the 'edit' button. Same on every other parental advice page I go to on IMDB. However on 'Trivia' and the like I can see the edit button.

A rating of 9/10 is way out of line for this film, there is no hardcore nudity or sex scenes not even any female nudity, few full frontals of males running about in the woods and one while he is taking a wee but nothing erotic. Some talk and dipiction of dildos and implication a woman goes off to use one. Lots of talk about genital warts, few images and diagrams, nothing explicit. Certainly nothing more than a strong 5 or 6.. 

Also the wall of text is horrible to read and needs adjusting to increase flow and decrease repetition. 

Normally quite active on parental guidance. Anyone know how long this outage will last?

"to request access you would need to post on https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/imdb-swiki-sections-update"

So, I'm posting here.  Not sure what good it'll do since my account here is in no way tied to my account on IMDb, but here goes nothing.  Thanks.

I get the feeling that IMDb either doesn't read these posts, or they just don't care.  It can't be that difficult to fix this, so I guess it's not a priority for them.

I think it's more than to keep plugging holes by fixing everyone individually they're trying to get a work around to fix everything. Although it has been quite a while now...
