In #180821-184109-701000 I edited two alternative titles listed with undefined country/language, probably the result of title corrections.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6461828/...

I replaced Sticks and Stones (2018) with Sticks and Stones (2018/II), but the Roman numeral was removed. Sticks and Stones (2018) is also the title of a short film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8520512/

The submission guide for alternative titles says, "If the title is identical to another title in the database but does not refer to the same film, you must add a Roman numeral after the year to make the title different;"
https://help.imdb.com/article/contrib...

I also tried to remove the "working title" which is just a combination of original title and alternative title. The film was previously listed in IMDb under this title, but I would call that misformatting rather than a working title.

Sorry, it's not possible to correct this item directly.
You will have to delete it and add a new item instead.

So, the Roman numeral was removed when the part of the update was approved and subsequently went live?

Hi Peter, Jeorj

Thank you for reaching out regarding this.

I've forwarded this information to our technical team for further investigation. We will contact you when we receive an update.

In the meantime, I can see the AKA is now live and when using the search function, the title appears as expected:
