I see a lot of film projects on IMDB that are listed as 'Development Unknown' for a lot of years. They look like they are just vanity listings for inactive filmmakers or forgotten/abandoned projects. What is IMDB's policy on these kind of listings, are they eligible for Title Remove Requests or will they remain on the site indefinitely?
