Hello! We attempted to add plot summaries to each episode of our series WTF 101, but they were all declined, all saying, "Your contribution has been declined.We did not capture a specific reason during processing." These are our official episode descriptions, we'd love to get them added to IMDB. If there's a specific reason why the descriptions were rejected, we may be able to adjust to meet whatever requirement wasn't being met. Can we please have further clarification on why the Plot Summary Additions were declined on the following contributions?

#190128-220742-816000 - WTF 101 ep 101
#190128-221249-683000 - WTF 101 ep 102

Hi CollegeHumor -

I can see that your Plot Summary episode submissions for "WTF 101" were rejected as Plot Summaries, but were re-routed and approved as Plot Outlines, see for example:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9679416/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9679426/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9679438/

The submissions were re-routed because the data you submitted met our Plot Outline guidelines (shorter plot, 239 characters), more so than our Plot Summary guidelines (a paragraph or two, more than 239 characters).

For further information on Plots data and the differences between Plot Outlines, Summaries, and Synopsis, see the following guide: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/plots/G56STCKTK7ESG7CP?ref_=helpsrall#
