According to the Language guide (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/languages/GSCRBZYEH5NX5SXL?ref_=helpms_helpart_inl...#), IMDb records the language of the original release.
Can a staffer please remove and block the following attributes in the language section: (Original Version) (attached to 17,893 titles), (Original version) (994 titles), (original version) (195 titles), (original language) (41 titles), (Original text) (23 titles) and (original text) (4 titles)?

Hi Marco -

Thanks for reporting these attributes, I have filed a ticket for our editorial staff to take a look as soon as they can.  Once I have an update on the status of the clean-up I will let you know here.  Cheers!

Hi Marco,

Thank you for your patience whilst we looked into this. The attributes have now been removed, please allow up to 48 hours for the changes to be visible on all platforms of the website and we are looking to take additional steps to prevent these from being added in the future.

Thanks
Meredith

Thanks a bunch Meredith.
I do see though, that currently, (Original Version) still has 312 listings and (Original version) 7. Maybe they're still in the process of being deleted, so I'll check back later to see if they're gone.

They're still around. Can you delete these please?

(Apropos, does anyone know if it's possible to update the status of an original post? I know this post might not be read by staffers because the case is already solved, but I also feel things get rather unwieldy if I were to create a new thread for situations like this one.)

Hi Marco,

All instances of (Original Version) and (Original version) have been removed from the site already. None are currently live.

Two months ago, Will said he had cleaned up the remainder and put a block in at the submission interface level, so that's more than a few days...

Hi Marco,

Apologies, I've cleaned up the remainder and put a block in at the submission interface level to prevent this from happening again.



Regards,
Will

In the dropdown menu, I still see (Original Version) and (Original version). Why is that?

Hi Marco,

There is an ongoing issue with stale search results being reflected in our submissions form. I've added this example to the ticket now.

It's been five months, is there any update regarding this issue?
