If you used the Serbian alphabet, it may be due to the fact that the new platform may not accept the related character set. An IMDb official should be able to confirm soon.
What is the error message you get?

I always follow(ed) the rules and instructions given during submiting new titles. There is a series of movie titles dumbly translated to Serbian and editorial board of IMDb won’t even accept the new change believing it’s a correct title.

Few examples are:
1. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316204/reference:
Osmi putnik: Kovenant ➙ it should be “Tuđin: Zavetnik”;
2. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5726086/reference:
Astralna Podmuklost: Poglavlje 4 ➙ it should be “Astralna Podmuklost: Poglavlje 4 - Poslednji Ključ”;
3. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115963/reference:
Kučke iz Istvika (Bitches of Eastwick) ➙ it should be “Veština” (which is literally The Craft);
I updated this to correct title several times, but each time the Board would deny the change...

These are the 3. I regularly updated new films and shows to correct titles following the rules. But recently they just stopped accepting it. Lots of people complained that the titles have not been correctly translated and I tried to fix it. But unsuccessfully, I noticed... ...so I now try to get some help on this issue here, if that is possible.

Please see below ... do you have the contribution reference numbers for these missing updates?

Also, we see you are using title reference view here -- there is a known bug at the moment (see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/changes-to-title-reference-view) which has broken the title localization display on title/reference, sorry, so does this explain any of the issues?

Actually, the problem seems to be that your titles are incorrect. "The Craft" was released in Serbia under the title of "Kučke iz Istvike". While an incorrect translation, that IS the original release title of the film in Serbia. The same goes for the two other examples you listed.

Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/when-will-my-update-be-added/GEK... (and note this is the holiday season). 

If, after checking the processing times page, there are still items which are older than the oldest waiting data, please provide the contribution reference numbers from your history at https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history/

All the changes I made are far beyond the processing time(s).
