Guys, I have a real problem here..

Lately I knew that editing any of my old reviews would take less than a week to be done. However, I edited my review about Batman Forever (1995) nearly 10 days ago, and nothing happened at all. I visited the reviews section; whether in the movie's page, or my own page, to find out that none of my editing was published !

Can somebody tell what's the problem here, and how to fix it please ?!

Hey Elshikh check your email accou nt as you should have received a mail the moment you sent the changes. Have you? If so, you will find a link in there and if you click it you will see if these changes are still on pending or if they have been rejected. if they are on pending, there is also a date stated when the changes are likely to be included on your review. That's all I can say. I don't think I've ever had such a long time like 10 days between editing and approval.

Thank you a lot. 

I did go to "status of your contribution" page. And I was shocked. Not because my editing was rejected. But because the reason, it says : 

Your contribution has been declined. We did not capture a specific reason during processing !!!!
Now can somebody tell what's the MEANING of that ???

Before the last modifications, the site used to give me a reason like "You did edit this review a lot, and you have no more chances for doing that again", something like that. But "We did not capture a specific reason during processing" is just rude and dumb ! Simply I made my Batman Forever review shorter, moreover I changed my point of view about some elements. In short, there is more than one reason for editing that review. So why does that page tell me that nonsense ??

I hope someone in the IMDb staff translate this phrase for me !

And whatever its meaning is, can I delete my review, and post the edited one ?

P.S : I believe IMDb nowadays tries diligently to find new ways to drive us out of it, and I just can't understand the reason why.
