Hey kind folks, any help on this would be fantastic!

I was both a writer of this episode AND the executive story editor.
It was rejected as "Potential duplicate."

You can see an example of how both these credits were attributed to an episode that same season here:

Furthermore, I was the staff writer for all of seasons 3 & 4 (46 total episodes). I'm happy to send you copies of my contract. :-)

34 were approved, 12 were rejected. The rejected items are below:

#190620-205719-798000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Lost in the Flood (#4.22)}
#190620-205701-367000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Beacon of Hope (#4.17)}
#190620-205647-379000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Taken (#4.15)}
#190620-205637-349000 - "Arrow" (2012) {A.W.O.L. (#4.11)}
#190620-205620-378000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Legends of Yesterday (#4.8)}
#190620-205557-502000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Haunted (#4.5)}
#190620-204402-508000 - "Arrow" (2012) {This Is Your Sword (#3.22)}
#190620-204359-420000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Al Sah-Him (#3.21)}
#190620-204347-498000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Broken Arrow (#3.19)}
#190620-204336-068000 - "Arrow" (2012) {The Offer (#3.16)}
#190620-204305-440000 - "Arrow" (2012) {Uprising (#3.12)}
#190620-204221-770000 - "Arrow" (2012) {The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak (#3.5)}

Thanks for all that you do!

Hello, Brian! 

The case might be a difficult one, because it seems that in the episodes in which you are credited as a writer you are not credited as an executive story editor, although I was only able to re-check the two from Season 4 so far - "A.W.O.L" and "Taken". IMDb staff members might provide additional advice as to what to do in that situation because I am confused a little bit: "Arrow" nearly always has an executive story editor credit somewhere so to discover that some episodes don't have one is nothing short of baffling... Is it possible that credits are different in TV and home video versions? 
Also, I know it's probably not the right place to say that, but I'm a big fan of your work on "Arrow" and "Vixen"! It was me who added your cameo as John Le (among with Emilio Ortega Aldrich's) as an acting listing on IMDb, as I was making the page about the character on Arrowverse and decided that, much like Alfred Hitchcock's cameos, it must be reflected on IMDb. By updated IMDb standards it might eventually move to "Miscellaneous Crew" as "photographic model: John Le (uncredited)", however it is a borderline case as photographs were shown on a display.

Just wanted to follow up on this. I went ahead and took a screenshot of the aforementioned episode "So It Begins." Hope it helps!
