I have not submitted a new title in some time, but here's an attempt that does not give me the option of submitting it ( Only deleting or saving it).  Can my saved update be viewed by the staff?  Can you tell me why I do not have the submit option? This info is from a Variety review, and there is no URL.

Hi Bradley,

As long as at. Least one section has not got a green background, the system will not propose the submit button.

Variety has been on line for decades now, so have you tried to search the website and spot your piece of news with a URL?

We can see the saved submission, thanks. 

The problem is in this section: Major Credits (3 items required) where only two credits have been provided. 

You can either add a third credit, or simply select the "Provide explanation" option in the top section of the form and state that you only know two credits:



You can always use this option if ever you are missing a piece of required information on any new title.

Thanks for the help.  I am now able to make the submission.  Three major credits will be a goal on future new title submissions.

Re URL, going to variety.com/archive is expensive: "For $60, users can access up to 50 issues during one month’s time. Unlimited access is available for $600 annually."

No way I could afford that!

I clipped Variety reviews for years, and have several hundred thousands.  Just starting to go thru them, so there will probably be more new title submissions.

My goal, as always, has been to help IMDb be the most inclusive website about movie/TV/video etc. I view IMDb as an archive, and am happy to extend its content -- and the accuracy of that content.

Bradley,

There may be 2 workarounds regarding Variety: the first one would be to be confirmed that IMDb does subscribe to Variety (I would be very surprised that they don't). So, if you quote precisely a piece of news, they could check it.
The other one would be simply to scan your clip, if it is a sufficient proof, and share it according to the ways proposed by IMDb.
