I've had several credits rejected for an title that I added. After the initial rejections, I added supporting evidence, in the form of timestamped links to a video which includes the credits. Some of the credits are under pseudonyms, and in those cases I included links to articles that supported that the pseudonym listed is the person listed in the credit. The updates with supporting evidence were also rejected.

The submission: 190718-020711-916000

The credits are as follows:

Kunny, Shizuka no (MSX version) main programmer

Shintani, Kenji (II) (as Lunarian) (Sega Master System version) programmer

Terubo (Sega Master System version) programmer

Teramoto, Kôji (as Janus) (Sega Master System version) game design

Komehika, Kazunari (as Komehika) (Sega Master System version) game design

Sueyoshi, Hiromichi (as Zash Sueyoushi) (MSX version) graphics

Mû, Hyôju (as Hyohju Mu-) (MSX version) graphics

Hirono, Takayuki (as Jemini) (Sega Master System version) sound program

All rejections are listed as "unable to verify," but I've given similar support to other credits which has been accepted. What further verification is needed?

Hi Gopherbassist,

Thanks for your post.

I've re-reviewed your submission and evidence - as a result I've added this on your behalf. Please allow up to 24 hours for this to reflect on all platforms and don't hesitate to let us know if you experience any further questions.

Have a great day.

To me this sounds like a very informative research, since ”AKA” names can be quite important to have listed.

However, perhaps the problem could be these ”MSX version”, ”Sega Master System version” type of attributes. Since, basically at least, the ”original” version of the title should be added and other versions go to ”Alternate version” section.

( Also, they should probably be formatted as ”main programmer: MSX version” and leave the attribute field blank. )

This can be a tricky rule when it comes to old videogames, since many games were released to various platforms and perhaps even at the same time.

(Uups, missed Joel’s reply.)

I thought about that as I submitted the title. The conclusion I came to is that much of the same team worked on the different versions of the game, and likely at a similar time since one version came out within months of the other. Is that one production or two? Hard to say. But I submitted it as one in this instance.
