Spoiler issues-advice, please

I recently submitted a review for "Reign Over Me" (#180128-154720-029504). I am fairly certain I forgot to click "includes spoilers" for the very first time. I contribute reviews on a regular basis, and I don't know how to to resubmit my review to reflect the fact that I've included spoilers. Can someone please advise? 

I can see there are numerous changes to how things are being submitted, but I cannot find the exact response to my problem. Can someone please advise? 

Submitting reviews has been part of my extremely enjoyable experience with IMDB for years, so I do not want to lose this opportunity because I forgot to checkbox "spoilers."

David,

Note: Since your review was submitted two days ago (2018 January 28), the item may still be in the middle of processing. The web link and the additional instructions below are for after the review is approved and appears on the website.

Please read the IMDb Help Center Page link below.

How do I edit or remove a review?
 
To the right of the screen is an editable version of the review. Scroll to the bottom and click the option Yes to the question Does this review contain spoilers? Then click Submit. Depending on any data backlogs, the revision may take at least a day or two to process.

I hope this helps.

Hi GMJ, I appreciate your response. It has now been three days. I did not receive an email indicating anything one way or another. Also, when I look at existing user reviews, all I can see is rated by "helpfulness"  - there is no option to search by "loved it/hated it" -- or by number of stars -- or by "most recent." 

I am not sure what happened, but it looks like all those options are gone. I'd really like to know the fate of my review, as I don't want to be banned from posting on IMDB just because I forgot to check the spoilers box.

Please see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/update-to-user-reviews (and the official replies there as some options will be returning soon).
