I recently updated the place of birth for the late film editor (#200722-123908-129000) and it was rejected.  His obituary clearly states he was born in Riverside, California, however this was delcined.


My questions are: (1) Why was this declined when it's factual? and (2) who on the IMDB staff is constantly declining my submissions without reading the source link where all the info I enter is validated?

This problem has been going on for some time and I feel that staff are rushing into declining without taking the time to analyze each submission.

Looks like this was fixed. His place of birth now appears in his entry. Many thanks!
