Unable to add my editing credit to network TV series

I have been for the last year an editor on a network TV series. I was promoted from Assistant Editor in July 2018. My attempts to enter my "Editor" credit on the episodes I was responsible for all come back as "unable to verify." Could someone please let me know what I'm supposed to do?

Here are the most recent submission tickets.

Probably the easiest way to provide proof are the screenshots of the actual credits where your name and occupation are listed. You can add those to that thread also.

Also remember that ”assistant editor” belongs to ”Editorial department” (not in the ”Editor” department):

Also, you need to add your credits to the correct episodes of the TV series. If the episode is not yet listed, you need to add the actual episode first (obviously you can add your name/credit at the same time):

Hi David -

I reviewed your submissions and noted that they have not been approved because our editors were unable to verify the information, and as Eboy suggested above, further evidence will be required.

If you are able to locate some screen grabs for a select number of the episodes where your name is credited on-screen as "Editor", please post those here and our staff can take a look.

Michelle,

Only one of the six episodes I submitted my credit for is currently available to stream online. Here is a screenshot that includes the streaming URL, show title, episode number, with my solo editing card.

Since the other episodes aren't available to stream and screenshot with any sort of contextual information, any other screenshots I submitted would just be the words "Edited by DAVID HOLLAND" on a black screen. I would hope that this screenshot combined with my years of history on the show Arrow, documented on IMDB, would open up the door for me to submit my own credits on the show without being contested each time.

Hi David, 

Thank you for providing the screengrab, I have resubmitted these credits on your behalf and these changes should appear on the site shortly. 

Thanks
