Dear IMDb Staff,

I'd like to know why IMDb rejected my credit for Scandal, episode titled "I'm Just A Bill," when I've already got 18 episodes of this show listed on my page. What about me or my credit submission could not be verified?

This isn't an isolated incident. IMDb data editors don't seem to trust me as a data contributor and I'd like to know how I can fix that.

Thanks for taking the time to help.

(also -- I frequently post screen shots of credits or other evidence whenever possible)

Hi Steve -

I reviewed the submission you referenced and there were no formatting errors, I also see that filmography stunt credits have been processed through March 28th (also noting that there is nothing wrong with your IMDb Account that would prevent your updates form being processed), so if your credit isn't listed it means that our editors were probably unable to verify it and need further information/additional evidence.

Therefore, for this particular episode credit, as well as any others you have submitted that didn't process, the best thing to do is post a screen grab here to help our staff verify the credits.
