I have updated my page, added English titles to the films, changed the biography and also added the film festivals where the films took part in. None of these updated were made, although I've received the confirmation letter about the team working on them. I am attaching a screenshot with not even the half of these updates being confirmed.

Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/when-will-my-update-be-added/GEK...

You should be able to locate and check the status of most updates via the new experimental tracking system at https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history ... does this help?

The dates in the email grab above are all from 12 April and there is no data awaiting processing that far back.  Please see https://contribute.imdb.com/times where the oldest items are from 15 April. Over 95% of all data submitted to IMDb is processed within 24 hours, so the processing times page mostly reflects the small number of cases which are more tricky to process. 

Please recheck the statuses on https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history and share the 18-digit contribution references of those which are showing as "Declined" and we can take a look.

Thank you very much for your fast reply! But we still don't understand how the site functions. We sent some updates, they were confirmed and received, but there are no changes and there's no information about these updates on the pages you sent. Have we done anything wrong? Or what? Will there be any changes or what should we do?

Please share the 18-digit contribution reference numbers of the missing updates.  You can find them in the email receipts if they are not being shown on https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history

Ivan Lopatin, your message was caught in a SPAM filter. Not sure whether it was avoidable, though, perhaps it was triggered by the number of pictures.

I'd like to see more such images... 
They are so helpful to flash any problem.

Please post the actual numbers here, not photos of emails.  You can start with perhaps 5-10 examples.

You are trying to change the original title from its correct transliterated Russian form to its English alternative title which is already present.  This is not a valid correction, please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/adding-a-new-title/GNXTSSVTJTFCRZGN specifically:

We use the original title of a movie/show in its original language as it appears on screen in the opening credits. The character set of all primary titles is ISO-LATIN-1. Original titles using other character sets (ISO-LATIN-2, Chinese pictograms, Cyrillic letters etc.) must be transliterated to ISO-LATIN-1. If you are unsure about the rules to follow check examples from the same country to see how it's done. For titles in Russian, there is a special guide available.

#190408-104305-331000
Same as the previous case

#190408-104625-682000
Same again, only this time the English AKA is incorrectly defined as (new title) so this needs to be deleted and replaced with the same AKA except using "International: English title" as the Country / Language and "imdb display title" for the Attribute field via https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2866544/releaseinfo [we have done this for you]

#190408-104755-753000
Same as the first two cases

The pattern repeats with the other IDs above so please also read https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/alternate-titles-akas/GBFBWTQG2RLMHSUR

Finally the last two are awards submissions with no titles or names atttached, so please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/other-submission-guides/awards/G5KGRJURZFQGHJQH

At least we now know why these items did not appear on https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history as all are for types not yet supported via this feedback interface:
Note: Certain types of contributions do not currently appear on this page, including contributed awards, companies, title and name corrections, title and name merges, connections, and cast/crew completeness. This is a known issue, and we will update on Get Satisfaction when it has been addressed.
We would recommend reading all of the guides above and generally the help at https://help.imdb.com/contribution before contributing anything else, and then adding one or two things to check they are processed and meet the contribution guidelines before continuing at any volume.

Okay, got it.
But we also added the festivals' history for our films, the nominations and awards, but it didn't appear

Thanks, the above link is your personal history of your own contributions. 

Please share the 18-digit reference numbers of the correctly formatted awards submissions which were rejected and please check your submissions against the guidelines at https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/other-submission-guides/awards/G5KGRJURZFQGHJQH before reporting here.  If you find any inconsistencies vs. the rules it is better to resubmit them in the correct form first.

Ivan Lopatin, your message was caught in the SPAM filter, probably because how much links is there. Not sure whether it was avoidable, but I fished it out.

Hi Ivan,

All of those awards submissions are badly formatted - you've just entered the information as a comment as opposed to adding any associated titles or name pages. Please follow the steps outlined in this guide to resubmit the awards in the correct format for our staff to take a look.

Regards,
Will
