I have a few reviews that just don't get added even though they have been accepted, I have had other reviews added in the mean time and I have taken those certain reviews down and reposted them over and over. For some reason they aren't getting added.

Hi Phil -

If you are concerned that your reviews aren't being listed, you should recheck the guidelines at: http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?co... to make sure your reviews meet our guidelines.

Otherwise, please note that reviews can take up to 7 business days to be approved so you may well find that your submission is still waiting to go online.

If you posted the review more than 7 business days ago after reading this you still think your review should be added, please resend it.

Hi, I have resend some of the reviews, a number of times, yet they never get done!

And the reviews do meet the guidelines because otherwise I wouldn't be able to send them at all, they would be rejected when I try to send.

Some reviews get accepted within a matter of hours but a few I've done never seem to go through. They are sitting on my pending list right now. I've taken them down and resent many times :(

Since Michelle says it can take 7 business days for some reviews to be approved, you probably shouldn't remove them from the system before that.

It is not correct to say that reviews that don't meet the guidelines can't be submitted from the form. Some issues may require manual handling by an IMDb editor.
