The above # was rejected while trying to fix this huge problem.

Please also look at #190710-214143-080000  which was to fix the runtime of a 3 part episode. I have anecdotal links that would suggests it should be shown as one episode vs 3 separate ones. If it's going to be 3 episodes, then the runtime must be that of one episode not three. As backup:

holy cow. I wish it was as hard to post bad info as to correct it.
Not sure if you're trying to help with the on-going image issue or the length of time on the episode.
I hope both and the link to the other thread has evidence of why the images are wrong.


For the length of time, I actually think it should be listed as one 90 minute episode, but I figured that would be harder plus I don't know for certain that it was shown in segments of 3 shows although all the sources below might suggest it aired as one lone episode.

https://the-jeffersons.fandom.com/wiki/Season_4

clip show. Louise and George have yet another one of their infamous fights which leads to Louise storming off to the Willis'. Soon after she leaves, a burglar holds George hostage and ties him up. Louise also gets tied up when she returns. This leads to George and Louise reminiscing about their lives and the time they've spent together.

  • Notes: Numerous clips are shown from both The Jeffersons and All in the Family.
Parts One through Three originally aired as a special 90-minute episode. Three days after this 90-minute episode aired, actress Zara Cully, who portrayed Mother Jefferson, died at age 86.

Mike.
A Suggestion.
You might want to do a weekly posting of rejected submissions.
Might be easier on you to consolidate.
That way you are not trying to follow 15 threads

Just a thought.
Cheers
Ed
:)

P.S.
Maybe separate them into two weekly posts
One for photos.
One for other data submissions.

I appreciate the suggestion/idea. I was trying to think of something similar and will have to digest this.  There are about 20 episodes to fix with the Jeffersons and they can only be done one at a time so doing it once a week would take half a year. So this isn't a solution for that problem.

But I had been trying to think of something along the lines you suggest. I really thought the episode time was a no brainer. Fortunately my delines is much reduced as I learn the system, but I'll try something along this once I can figure out what might work.

thx. (lol, this is why I didn't submit anything about that guy
Ryota Nakanishi with like 100 duplicate images because they were all on his official page. I've learned to ignore those pretty much. Hope your having luck.)

They have a full blown investigation going. That is the 5th or 6th I have come across that is that bad. One that I was contributing to went from around 200 credits to 20 when IMDb was done. Right now that one is one of two they are currently looking into that I started. They do look at gross violations. You just have to get the ball rolling with one portion. I concentrated on that pages Thanks credits. IMDb smartly concluded that where there is smoke there is fire. Concentrating on one aspect is best. They are smart enough to see the pattern and look at the other categories.

I love this one
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3789708/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast
It also has special thanks "the producers wish to thank " and has him as the producer. So in other words, he'd like to thank himself for being thanked for producing something he was going to be thanked for. Or something like that.

He's listed as everything in this title. It's great.
BTW, don't ask for any screen grabs. If you want to know why not, look at the trivia which I'm sure he contributed as well.
And all I want is to fix a few images on a great 70-80s series. lol

That title is completely Bogus.
I does not exist.
Researched it.
If you look at the full title credits it is Produced by Fuji Film.
He listed the Film-stock as the Production Company!
LOL
What a Joke this guy is.

Somebody is screwing with the pics I'm trying to fix. If you see the two images below showing the same image on two episodes, but I had fixed these and someone has now mucked them up. Makes one want to give up. Very frustrating that someone could mess these up when they can easily be determined as wrong because of the guest star in the pick. It seems they were more easily able to mess it up than I could try and fix them.




And to show I fixed them:

Just to clarify, those shouldn't be considered as third party. Those channels will have bought the rights to broadcast the show, therefore the images are eligible. "Third party" in this instance refers more to other direct image owners if that makes sense.

I can agree with that Ed, but I think I might understand a little better with Will's info. I think it helps me a little with some other images, but heck if I know.

Here's  another scenario................Not in the help topics.
What if the original network logo (CBS for example) and STARZ were both watermarked on the image? Overlapping one on top of the other?

It's hard to say without seeing an example, but that doesn't sound ideal. Like I say we would prefer none at all, but any official distributor channel is eligible.

Is it possible to move an image from a title that only has one image? It doesn't seem like it can because of the primary image thing, even if the image doesn't belong to the episode. Fixing this thing of the Jeffersons is such a pain there has to be an easier way.

Hi MikeTheWhistle,

In these cases if your delete isn't accepted its best to use the Contact form to report it directly with staff.

Thanks,
Will

For the record, it was for duplicate issues that I was asked to use contact thing unless I'm mistaken. (and if you read thru the above, the original question on this post was about length of an episode and it wasn't even an image issue. I did ask if someone was screwing with what I had fixed and then asked if there was a way to fix this peculiar issue with the jeffersons in that there being only one image and it's wrong but because it's the only one it's also primary and if there is a way to fix it. There wasn't a question regarding a specific contribution/rejection.)

And where Will asked me to go is greyed out and doesn't let you email about duplicates so it becomes a circular issue saying to go to a place where the option isn't available.
For what I'm talking about, see
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/need-help-with-190721-170407-625502
I asked for clarification and haven't gotten any as to why the email link is greyed out.
Ed, maybe you'd like to take a crack at that????

But I have asked other questions trying to get some clarification, fix self credits, understand some things, get better eyes, etc.

I just looked and I've only asked two image questions, and that's in the past two weeks I believe.  One was from a prior issue - "I now know which is the correct".  The other related to the jeffersons where seeing the prior info I felt was also needed.

Unfortunately GS screwed up on me about 3 weeks ago causing me to post the same issue multiple times. I posted it and it didn't show up. So I posted it again and nothing, and then again and again nothing, and then all of a sudden they all appeared hours later. Had I seen they showed up before there was a reply I would have deleted them, but they showed up over 2 hours later when I was offline.

And I have used the contact thing with success which is why I've not posted other things here.

I'd encourage a rewrite and a change though to how rejects direct someone because they direct people here to gs and not to the contact form so until earlier today (or might have been yesterday) I had thought imdb wanted people to come here in general as a first resort to begin with regardless.

And just to show the greyed out email link, here is that pic that maybe someone can determine why it is grey out. Am I not supposed to be seeing a greyed out email link?

Hi MikeTheWhistle,

Apologies, I missed your response there.

It looks like the contact form options have since changed, another level has been added since then. See my screenshot below.



If for any reason this option still isn't available please select the Other image/video issues option and the E-mail button there.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Will

It's weird I guess. I don't have "title page images" as an option. I select imdb fan/contributor, then "images & video". Then the options I have are below. Should I be selecting something different or seeing something different?

Hi MikeTheWhistle -

I see you posted this screen grab last week.  Can you check the Contact Us form again and let us know if you are still seeing the same drop-down selection as captured above?

Just check and I am.  Should I not be?

If I'm not, I'm getting to it by
https://help.imdb.com/contact
then select imdb fan/contributor; then images &Video.
In case it helps, here is the issue list I see. Thx
(I've been using Will's suggestion to just use other with good success.)
