I was turned down twice for a bio contribution

I was turned down twice for a bio contribution on an actor's page that I provided the bio for several times. It says not verifiable but I gave a link to a reputable newspaper. They turned down the trivia I submitted with the same link also as not verifiable. I wrote the original bio for this actor and provided several updates over the years. What's the problem? He has many trivia and quotes that could not possibly be verified. Things like he's left-handed, and some remark he made to a fan. Is he hands-off for updates suddenly? Explain how this happening, IMDb please?

If you want a specific answer, you'll probably need to provide the 18-digit contribution number so an IMDb staffer can look at what you provided.

The trivia submission is #190807-203557-582000. The Bio and Quite submission is #190807-023053-437000. Thanks!

Hi findel,

The reason the mini bio was rejected was that it contained birth date information, which is otherwise captured in the date of birth list type. The quote I have resubmitted though, as well as the bio trivia item which will go live shortly.

Thanks,
Will
