How to add Movie Connection: Follows/Followed By

I can't add this type of connection; it's not in the dropdown list. "Version Of" is not in the list either. The instructions tell you what to do for these categories, but those instructions are out-of-date and can't be done.

The instructions tell you to email IMDb staff using the "new form" which it has a link to, and on it choose "IMDb Fan/Contributor questions". These are now two separate choices not one button. Then it says after that to choose "Titles" in the dropdown, yet there is no such option under either initial choice Fan nor Contributor. Then it says choose "Update complex connections" in the next dropdown, which choice doesn't appear anywhere no matter what you chose previously.

There doesn't appear to be anything else applicable, but the instructions say if you have trouble using the form (duh) post on Get Satisfaction, so here we are again, complaining.

I need to add the following:

For https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035664 :
Followed By: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037522

and its reverse:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037522 :
Follows: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035664

And please rewrite those very wrong instructions.

And how about including those categories in the regular edit form for Movie Connections.

Edit: I've edited my message from my original post 'cause I misread your post.

=====

This is the note currently given here: New complex connections can only be submitted via the help site contact form through the path IMDb Contributor > I need help and haven't submitted an update > Titles > update complex connections. (The same applies to deletions or modification of existing complex connections.)

=====



I hope this helps. Good luck.

Dear Staff,

Please correct a spelling mistake on the Movie connections guide page.



> "Submited" should be "Submitted" <

Thank you.

Yes that's a better set of instructions. I sent the email now. The wrong instructions I was referring to are in the main editing form when you choose Connections:



Totally different than the ones in the help article. Most people would see the ones in the editing form and get thoroughly confused like I did. Staff, please rewrite to match.
