I have been using IMDB to track my visual effects credits for 9 years, but recently every submission is rejected. What changed?

190106-001010-104000
Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame

190508-181719-237000
Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker

I am attaching a screenshot of the credits for Captain Marvel, which could easily by photoshopped by someone who was trying to game the system. As Avengers: Endgame is not available yet on Blu-ray/VOD and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker is not released yet, I can't do that. How do I verify those?

Someone apparently took this screenshot of the Endgame credits, where you can see my name too:

How did IMDB used to verify these things?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Verification screenshots for denied credits.

Please confirm/accept my submissions for a visual effects artist credit for Steven Knipping on Endgame and Rise of Skywalker, thanks!

Also - why do my submissions always get marked as "declined"/"unable to verify" every time, even though my name is clearly in the credits? Just curious.

Submission references:
200210-195642-278000 (Avengers: Endgame)
200210-195451-064000 (Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker)
