He was adding information to the IMDB entries of Mariya Takeuchi and Tatsuro Yamashita, 80s Japanese Pop stars, and his birthday and birthplace entry has been rejected on the grounds that it was not possible to verify.  It even though I have placed his entries to TMDB, Wikipedia and even their web pages where in Japanese they confirm their date of birth and place within the other sites. So, i want to know why they say is unable to verify when i showed three differents websites where they confirm me the information.

Hey Pablo, we don't consider TMDB or Wikipedia as reliable sources and we do not have a data editor on the team that read Japanese - which is why your evidence would have been declined. If you have a non-Wikipedia or TMDB source in English then please resubmit.

I have tried to include Yamashita's date of birth with links to multiple pages in English, such as Generasia; Sticky facts; Happy Happy Birthday and How Old, literally quoting the page confirming the data in addition to including the link and I continue to receive the same notice that cannot be verified.
