Accepted but not shown!?

Not sure if this is being affected by the latest change of the site, of the "Self" credits. All of my latest submissions have been approved but somehow they do not appear on the site. Most of them, were added yesterday.

Great to see that I'm not alone on this. I mean, one thing is seeing that instead of "himself" or "herself", we should now rather use "self" regardless of gender. But how my latest submissions from today have been approved but not posted online is very strange. Let me just say that whatever you've been talking about partially happened to me too earlier today, when I contributed by adding two Norwegian series by NRK that weren't on the IMDb database until now.

Here are the two series:
"Kan selv" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12020954/
and
"Elsa" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12021082/

"Kan selv", which is a documentary series about kindergarten kids doing things by themselves, doesn't have any name credits but NRK Super's logo at the end of each episode. That's fine. The actual series got approved and posted online after several minutes, that's great. But when I then submitted all the 20 episodes, they all got "approved" after several minutes, but are still not posted online for everybody to see. Why is that?

As with "Elsa" (2013), a children's family/drama mini series about 5-year-old Elsa who lives with her father and big sister, this series also got approved. Everything got approved, except from the running time that's still pending, that's great. But the problem here is, everything got posted, except from the name credits. Why aren't the name credits posted, if I may ask? Therefore, I decided to let all the 8 episodes I've made ready to submit, be saved for later, just so I can see if the full cast and crew get posted for the actual series.
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200324-100229-044000/?ref_=ra_his_wa

I also made some corrections for "Elsa", all of them which got approved almost instantly. Here, the only approved correction that's not even posted online, are the corrected names and order. Here are the corrected and approved, but still not posted names:
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/200324-114923-392000/?ref_=ra_his_wa

If any of the IMDb staff know about this problem, then please let RichieM, me, and anybody else having this issue know.

Thanks. :-)

I'm noticing this too. What's displayed on the database credits pages and person name filmographies seems to be out of sync with the most recent data in the database. Approved changes exist in the database behind the scenes; if I go into the submission form and do "Correct / Delete", I can see them, but they're not all appearing on the actual pages (or sometimes they do on Full Cast & Crew only, and not on the person's filmography, or vice versa, or attributes are missing on the title cast/crew/etc. pages but not on the person's filmography, things like that).

I concur, can someone on the IMDb staff look into this?

Yeah, I saw that too. When I was gonna correct some of the cast credits for "Elsa", which I mentioned earlier, then I also saw the approved names in "the database behind the scenes" which you said.

So I decided to test if it still continues, by adding Bearski Method's YouTube-video called "Piranha Juveniles Eat a Frog!". It's now on the database. But names are still not posted. So strange to be honest. Could there be a glitch or something else? :-/

Good to know that this isn't happening to me only. I got worried because I added a bunch of stuff (mostly talkshows), everything was accepted and gone into invisível, and no one had reported it yet...


Just to be clear, I was able to add episodes. The cast however, was nowhere to be seen.

Edit: okay, what I added today is now live on the site. Yesterday's however, are not:

200323-231241-450000
200323-192734-823000
200323-191716-002000

If I try to correct the credits, everything is there, just not live on the site.

It looks like the problem has been fixed, so far. I hope you'll be seeing your approved cast very soon, because the names I added earlier today are now visible, as well as the 20 episodes for "Kan selv". It should happen for your approved "cast & crew" submissions anytime now. But let's keep telling the staff if something's wrong. :-)

So strange that your submissions from March 22 aren't showing up yet. Normally, they should be visible by now. If not, then I hope that yours are coming up so soon as possible. But can you provide your references or links to the IMDb staff in case your submissions still don't appear online, if you don't mind? :-)

Hello Chribren
Thank you for your concern. The contributions are now available. It took some time, though.

This one is from March 23. Only the episode is visible, the 5 cast members are not...

That was just strange. My last approved contributions have kept showing up constantly, so how comes Thalia Giameluca doesn't show up properly? :/ For example, what film did Thalia star in? Let's see if anyone in the IMDb staff gets to take a look at this problem. ;-)

Seriously? I had all mine submissions from earlier today approved, including a bear rescue video called "Rescuing Moon Bears", as well as a crazy credit for "Edle dråper" (2002) had got declined in first try. So far, everything got approved, and then displayed online. This is very strange. :-/
Now I hope the staff could take a look on your problems so they can have it fixed as soon as possible. And then your approved submissions can be visible for everybody.

My release dates are live now.

If your credits don't appear soon, maybe you should report it through the help page as Jaime suggested:
https://help.imdb.com/contribution?ref_=helpart_alltopic

Some years ago it was very common that there was a delay between updates being processed and appearing on the site. You could see the approved data in the update form, but not on the site. Hopefully this is only a temporary return to that situation.

That was a nice read, Peter. :-) As it's been in the recent days, I've been wondering if there could be a glitch or something else wrong. Now we can just hope this is just a "temporary return to that situation" as you said. I think that link you shared here should be a good help to the others as well.

It looks like this is the only credit on the Naimah (II) page and it is marked as uncredited. A person must have at least one credited work before the uncredited work will be displayed.
