The page for the Syfy show Defiance will not allow voting because it says "voting begins after release" but the show was released in April 2013. Is there a reason the page hasn't been updated?

Hello Megan,

We don't appear to have any release date information listed: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2189221/r... submitting a release date via the 'edit page' link will allow voting once the update has been processed by our data editors.

Hope this helps!

Defiance has episodes listed (which do have release dates). Once episodes are listed you are no longer able to submit release dates at the series level. You can only correct/delete series-level dates.

The release dates are all good:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2189221/e...

Compared with:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defiance...

And there is no way to add a release date for a TV series from that page you link to, so I've added a production status of "released":

130820-140154-899000

Indeed - and this kind of thing has been reported at least half a dozen times on here, with no obvious reason why it has occurred.

Adding a production status does seem to fix this (it didn't have one listed on the ordinary IMDB), although it might be the explanation that does it, drawing staff's attention to the problem and they then do the arcane voodoo required to make it work. Unfortunately, it is a bit of a black box problem - submitting a production status works, but quite how or why is far from clear.

Per comments here - http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/t... - this is a known bug that is being worked on.
