in adding ARTICLES, list of PUBLICATIONS is showing articles rather than pubs and says it's not one of the existing pubs (NY Times??, Variety??). I've just been checking "Add this as a new publication" and all's well, but this has been going on for days and I'm starting to feel maybe someone should fix it. Meanwhile, this method of reporting is confusing, to say the least! (contributor since 1996)

Hi ackwitt -

To clarify, are you trying to submit 'Articles in the Media' data to name page bios on the site?

Michelle: I have experienced the same problem as Akwitt. I believe that it occurs not only with Articles in the Media, but also with Magazine Covers and Pictorials.

Here's an illustration of what it looks like.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Articles in the Media.

When submitting a Bibliographic Citation upon any Actor Profile, under "Articles in the Media,"
IMDB isn't recognizing ANY of the Publication Titles. (This bug has existed for over 2 weeks now, and I thought your programmers would have corrected it.)  The only way to complete the submission is to click on 'Add this as a new publication,' then IMDB accepts the entry, gives the green box, and allows the "submit these updates" to proceed.

IMDB isn't recognizing ANY long-established publications like the Los Angeles Times, New York Post, USA Today, etc. etc., etc. - all being unrecognized by IMDB as already existing in the Database.

How can this be fixed???

Joe: See above. This is a known bug but it hasn't been resolved yet.
