Why is Imdb not allowing me to add my credits to the movies that I have recently worked in, under the title's search?

Submissions take 1-14 business days to process fully. If you've submitted within that time frame, they might not have been processed yet.


If you post the submissionID numbers staff can cbeck status. Also, if you post the contents of your email receipt(s) others might be able to tell you how to submit it with better odds of getting them accepted.


Also, you can upload images to support your submissions, such as screen captures of your name in on screen credits. That might help staff verify and approve the credits.

If this is your page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6545104/ you'll have to prove on screen credit. If the works were uncredited, they won't be eligible for display until your page show at least one credited role.

I have e-mails from productions and check stubs. How else can I prove this. I just want to know how to get this done as painless as possible, and less time consuming.

Emails and check stubs do nothing to prove you've been credited on screen.

Instead of asking the same question over and over, can you confirm whether this is a "credited" (your name appears in the on screen credits) or "uncredited" (your name does not appear in the credits) role?  If it's "uncredited," it won't be accepted no matter what proof you provide as you're not yet eligible to receive "uncredited" entries on your page.

If the work is, indeed, "credited," a much better form of proof would be a screen capture showing your name in the on screen credits list.

Since you have IMDbPro and have a resume attached to your page, the uncredited work can be listed there.  But, until you have a credited role on your IMDb page, uncredited entries will not be allowed.

Did you read the replies in your other post? https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/updates-for-profile-havent-been-honored-and-i-have-been-pati...

If you post into either of these threads, your submission ID number (log in and click on View your contributions), and then upload a screen capture of your name in the on screen credits, your submission will probably be added to your page, if you were credited on screen.

Also, if you can post the contents of the email receipt you received when submitting, or at least, describe in detail what you've submitted, other users might be able to suggest a way to get it accepted more easily.
