When we submit a request via
IMDb Contact
we don't get a copy until the desk replies.
We need an independent copy emailed to us immediately upon submission, and/or a place to look at our list of pending Contacts. We used to have that, as I recall.

@bderoes,

Thank you for suggesting this. I fully agree that a prompt confirmation email would be beneficial.

Agreed, this would be useful.

But I wonder if it's not done for the same "privacy reasons" that we no longer get the text of any explanation fields included in the email receipt for submissions. (Personally, I still don't understand the reasoning behind that, would love to see it explained properly)

I've always gotten the full text of my message to Contact Us, just not until they respond.

I, too, would like to see an explanation of the Privacy concern that prevents some text from being sent with Contribution confirmations. But since we can still see it on Contribution History, that's been less of an issue for me. Until, of course, some laborious Contribution gets lost in a data abattoir incident.

That one has been puzzling me ever since it first occurred.

Hey all,

You're right that this option used to be available in the past - although the shift to email was seen to be a better experience for those who don't want to login to IMDb to see if they have a response.

With that said, the ability to see your message to the Contact center is a useful feature - I've collated this feedback and will pass it on.

Cheers

Joel
