Hi, Louise Eastwood.

I guess the name and year of your film is similar to others, so needs to be followed by the next free roman number. E.g. if "The Newcomer (2009)" exists in the base, then you need to input "The Newcomer (2009/II)".

After you strict followed the warning instructions, then you should sit in the boat of success and cross The River :)

You are at the wrong place for adding a new title.
The above help contribution may confuse you.
Don't stress out.
Read this. It explains how to add a new film or short film.

Thanks so much Ed , it finally looked like the page above ! Lord be praised . I just got stressed doing it for hours as looking after a disabled family member full time aswell as trying to work and live my life so it’s pretty difficult and my patience is worn . It’s a student film and the plan is they’re going to try and sell it and I had to sign a release form but I’d really like it up there on my credits . Hope it’s all ok

And for those that did not notice.
This is a dead give away that shows that she is on the wrong page.
It is telling the user to visit the title addition page!


And if your movie was completed in 2019 and it is called The Newcomer, please ignore the recommendation that it be marked as (2009/II).
The other contributor while trying to help in his hasty attempt did not notice that that title is 11 years old and your movie is not 11 years old. So that advice does not apply.

At the very bottom is a little box you check off "Provide explanation"
Click it and recheck these updates.
A new box will appear.
Put your explanation there.
