Corrections to producers for The Name of the Rose declined

I tried to correct three producer credits for episodes of The Name of the Rose to the on-screen credit of "produced by" with "a.p.t." as the attribute as I assume this is an Italian equivalent of the PGA. It was accepted for a few episodes but not all.

(Maybe, this is a misunderstanding by me. I thought all guilds were acceptable for attributes for producers but the guide only talks about P.G.A.)

Can someone explain why it was accepted on some episodes but not others and whether other guilds are eligible for attributes?

The submissions were: 190718-140617-546000, 190718-140741-718000, and 190718-140903-291000

See the picture below as to the onscreen credit.

Hi Adrian, thanks for reaching out about this. You're correct, the help guide only address P.G.A. as that is the only guild attribute we accept. I'm not seeing any (a.p.t.) credits currently live, do you have any specific instances you could point us towards? 

Thank you!

All three producers mentioned above have episodes for the series The Name of the Rose with a.p.t.  as an attribute.

See the pages of Carlo Degli EspostiMatteo Levi and Nicola Serra.

It seems odd to me that you would accept one guild and not the others since P.G.A. is specifically American. 

Like I said in the original posts, some of the contributions were accepted and some were not and I really don't understand why.

IMDb doesn't accept guild attributes ("Suffixes indicating professional affiliation, like ASC, CSA, MPSE, etc., are never included; such guild memberships can be noted in biographical trivia"). As such, PGA guild attributes are not eligible as well.

But, the (lowercase!) "p.g.a."-marker is not a guild attribute, but a "certification mark awarded by the PGA only for certain producers" and it is eligible for inclusion.
Please see the submission guide for a detailed explanation.

I hope this helps.
