New Contribution Feature Launch: "Track My Title"

Hi,

Contributors adding new titles and episodes to IMDb can now track the status of their new
title contribution.

From today, you will be able to track the status of your new title or episode contribution.  It is a beta feature which will tell you whether your title has been approved (and provide the link if it has). If the title has not been approved, we will tell you the reason why and provide the ability to resubmit the title with more information.  We will not, at this time, be providing the status of the individual items that were included with the title.

You will be able to access this feature via a 'Track Contribution' button, which has been added to the email that is sent and the banner that is displayed when you contribute your new title to IMDb.  We are also adding the 'Track Contribution' button to the http://www.imdb.com/updates/history page for new title contributions.

Clicking this button will take you to IMDb Contributor, our new contribution specific site where you will be shown the status of your new title or episode.

Whilst we are only launching this feature today for new titles/episodes, we are planning to eventually roll this feature out for other data types.

We are actively requesting feedback from contributors who access this new feature via a feedback link on the new site, which will all be managed via this thread.

Cheers,

Rachel

Hi Rachel, thanks for letting us know about this feature. It looks like a good idea. I tracked a title that I submitted last night and found that it has already been accepted.

I do have a question about this. The feature appears to be labeled as "IMDbPro Contributor" and when I clicked on the link to the title, I was taken to the IMDbPro page for it. However, there are many people who contribute titles but don't have IMDbPro access. If they try to track their contributions, will they get an error message about how they need to subscribe to Pro to see the page? Or will they be taken to the page for the title on the free site? (I think the latter would be much preferable.)

Hi,

Great question. If a contributor is not an IMDbPRO customer, the links will take them to imdb.com and the site branding (the logo) will be for IMDb Contributor.

Cheers,

Rachel
