I submitted a place of birth for an actress Claudia Trujillo at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6789230/ from information from her own personal website at https://www.claudiatrujilloactress.com/ (She was born in Barcelona, Spain) and it was rejected.  I'm really having difficulty understanding why it was denied.  It was from her own website for crying out loud and I didn't list her DOB.  Contribution #191202-075122-119000

Hi Justin, we encourage you to read through our help site guide on date of births for the type of evidence we look for with date of birth submission.s

Looked through the site guide and the closest thing it gives for a reason is "We are looking for links to public records, printed publications, or official documents.".  But it also states "We do allow social media links to be an acceptable source for birthdates (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.)", so I still don't understand why this was not accepted.

I think it's very strange that the guide also states IMDb allows social media links, because to the best of my knowledge, IMDb does NOT allow these. Which makes sense by the way, because a lot of people in the media don't want their (proper) age to be known.
