Hi,

So, we have a top 1000 Hollywood actor (we have signed him, and have paperwork) but how do I put him up on IMDB.com?  There it no link on the web as its a private deal at this point.  Have seen question to IMDB team and its been 5 days already.  No response.  

Happy to verify but can't see any which way to do it.  Before anyone says, I have been been to private verify page and submitted the form. :)  Just no public link, which I know they want.  

Help!

Do you mean you used this form:

http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_verification

But you didn't supply any links as proof?

If so that rather misses the point of the form and I doubt there is any point to it.

The most secure method I can currently think of to send a link, is to either use your own website or something like Dropbox (where the file is placed in a folder, stored in the cloud so only someone you send the link to can see it and then when you delete it the file is gone):

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
How long is reply process?!.


It's been over a week.  How long before someone answers my question (sent verification link)?

Usually get a reply within 2-3 days so this is pretty wacky.

Thanks!

What information are you trying to add (which name to which title)?

As listed on the form itself, links submitted via that form will take several weeks to be reviewed. If you are trying to add a new cast member to a new/unreleased title, that's not the best option -- if you a link to a public source verifying the information, just post it here.

Thanks Giancarlo.

The title is The Field:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2257284/

It's not public but we have the PDF on our sever for IMDB to verify.

Can I send privately to IMDB?  It's an Inducement Letter from the actor who is on board and it cant be done publicly because its a legal doc.

Have you submitted the link to that PDF through the form I gave?

If so can you give the reference number for the submission to keep things joined up?

Do you have an update reference number for that cast submission? I see a lot of submissions for that title, but not one of that cast member.
