User reviews declined

All my reviews were accepted until mid-July, 2018, then all the reviews I wrote after this has been automatically declined Why is this happening? Is IMDB being inundated with reviews from Netflix viewers? I spend a lot of time writing thoughtful reviews. Thanks for looking into this for me.

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Why was my new title declined and how do i improve it?.

Hi, BETTY C JUNG. If the email address associated with your Get Satisfaction user account is different from the email address associated with your IMDb user account, then please post the URL of your IMDb registered user profile or the 18-digit reference numbers of the reviews of yours that were declined. Either way, please standby for a response from the IMDb staff.

Is there a generic (?) link to user review  submission reference numbers for the User to find

No, sorry.  We would have mentioned it if it existed. The submission reference numbers are in each individual review email.

The long term aim is to include user reviews in the main contribution history, along with everything else missing from there now.

I do not do reviews - I am not a gud riter
I do reed them for whatever I am watching on TV
I click on Prolific to find
https://www.imdb.com/user/ur2483625/reviews
and
https://www.imdb.com/user/ur1002035/reviews
and others

So, If a reviewer deletes his/her email - as I do each day
there is no way for him/her to find the Review Contribution #s

Hi Act_1 -

Yes that is correct, while there is a reference number for the User Review submission in the Contributor Confirmation e-mail, that reference number is not currently stored in a users Contribution History.  So the only way to know the submission reference number is to access it from the e-mail.

IMDb should keep Reviews reference numbers stored in a users Contribution History.
but that May take up too much computer space with more than 90,677,500 Users now

I just submitted another review to see what would happen and it got declined as well. Is IMDB declining all reviews now? Here's most recent rejected review

Hello, I tried the link but the E-mail link does not work.  I would like to write more movie reviews, but if they keep getting declined, I'll just stop writing... Thanks for your time.

BETTY C JUNG, is the "E-mail" button grayed out? Do you even see the button at all? In order to use the IMDb Contact Us form, you will have to be logged into IMDb. If the form is not loading for you and we cannot figure out how to get it to load, then the IMDb staff may have to send a message to whichever e-mail address you've used for account registration on IMDb.

As mentioned by my colleague, please get in touch via our Contact Form (https://help.imdb.com/contact) whilst logged into your IMDb account - you can then select the IMDb Fan/Contributor questions -> other data types -> other data issue and use the E-Mail option.

A member of staff on the help desk will be able to help you further.
