Hi,

In recent months, I have sent a number of birth dates updates that have not been made and no reference has been received from IMDB.
A few examples:
180314-212331-209000
180314-213118-046000
180105-102040-665000
180109-202628-130000
180424-153418-287000
180314-212821-330000
and the are more.

Please let me know what I missed.Thanks,Yossi

Hi YossiT -

I was able to review the birthdate submissions you posted and can see that they were not approved because our editors were unable to verify the information.  Please keep in mind that we don't consider Wikipedia (or other collaboratively edited wiki-style sites) to be an acceptable source for birth dates; however, many Wikipedia articles include online citations and external links which provide supporting evidence of the subject's birth date, and these are often appropriate URLs to include in your submission.

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for your response,
I wonder what kind of supporting evidence we need to provide in order to determine the date of birth of a 25-year-old actor?
Even when I  sent an update with a link to reliable sites that are not Wikipedia, the update was not made.Please advice,Yossi

Hi YossiT -

Please note that when reviewing birth dates our editors prefer verifiable links to public records, printed publications, or official documents; you can also  find further information on acceptable birth date evidence on our Biographical data guides

Concerning the specific update you mentioned with reliable links, if you can post that submission reference number here I can take a look at the submission and the provided links and clarify why the submission may not have been approved.
