Appeal of two declined contributions

Hello,

I corrected two goofs for the film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0139668/ They are actually not goofs, so I changed them to "Incorrectly regarded as goofs" and changed the description. Nevertheless, my contributions were declined as "not meeting guidelines". I am extremely puzzled that these incorrect goofs were approved without being checked, but my corrections are not passed.

As for my first correction (#191112-043835-694000), you just have to compare two drawings shown in the film, and see that they are different. I am giving the minutes where they appear. Why is this correction not passed?

As for the second correction (#191112-044912-369000) you just have to watch the film or read the script. Why is this correction not passed either?

I am now copying my two contributions. I ask you to EITHER TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG OR ACCEPT AND IMPLEMENT THEM:

GOOFEDIT
Before
When the little girl Gail draws her "green pastures" picture, she finishes it in her daddy's cell on his execution day. Ev finds the drawing in the dead reporter's things. The dead reporter, Michelle, had died the night before, which is before the drawing was completed.Plot holes
After
When the little girl Gail draws her "green pastures" picture, she finishes it in her daddy's cell on his execution day. The reporter of the bug says that Ev finds the drawing in the dead reporter's things, which would not be possible as the dead reporter, Michelle, had died the night before. Nevertheless, the drawing that Ev finds in the reporter's things (which contains some stylized figures representing people, circa minute 85) is not the one that Gail finishes in the prison (which does not contain any human figures, circa minute 60). The drawing that Ev finds is therefore an older one.Incorrectly regarded as goof

It is not a goof, because the drawings are different.

GOOFEDIT
Before
Everett drives from Oakland to San Quentin more than once on the same day he takes his daughter to the zoo. Given the traffic conditions in the Bay Area and the 30 miles or so from the Tribune building to the prison and the bureaucratic hassles of visiting a prisoner, the time line becomes highly suspect.Errors in geography
After
The submitter of the bug claims that Everett drives from Oakland to San Quentin more than once on the same day, which would be quite complicated given the traffic conditions, the distance, and the bureaucratic hassles of visiting a prisoner. Actually, he only drives once to the prison, to interview the inmate (towards the end of the film, he does not drive to the prison, but to the Governor's residence), and that interview was already arranged.Incorrectly regarded as goof

Hi David, regarding your second submission, please review our goof formatting guidelines; do not frame goofs as a back and forth against a previous contributor. Either request the deletion of a goof, or modify it so it displays accurately. I've resubmitted the first goof on your behalf.

Thank you, Elizabeth. I have just made the following submissions:

1) As for my correction that you accepted, I have rephrased it a bit, to make it sound more clear, and to remove any references to the previous contributor. I have done so via contribution #191113-202718-617000. I do hope it is accepted!!!

2) As for the correction you asked me to modify, I have requested the deletion of the wrong goof, via contribution #191113-203209-310000. I hope it is fine now!

In case that any of these two is declined, I suppose I will have to write back here...

Regards.

Hello again, Elizabeth. My request for deletion was declined. As only one of my contributions is now declined, I opened a new thread. May you have a look at some moment?

Thank you in advance.
