IMDb declining almost every update to past/current/future projects.

I have posted about this twice in 2 threads that are now closed for some reason. I am very frustrated. IMDb editors are DECLINING everything I submit, information for past/current/new projects. This isn't just for adding titles, it's also for "Trivia" to films I'm in and or produced and updating release date information to past titles. Most recently IMDb declined the edit of a mistake on the tagging of a photo for one of my films. I'll share proof in a photo below. Please I have been given the run around. I was told on the help desk to come here which is why I made this account on GetSatisfaction.com then yesterday I was told to go back to help desk. Please tell me who I can speak with about my account. As far as I know it is NOT suspended but I am being treated like it is

The above photo is just of over 20 examples of my submissions being declined without reason. Please point me in the direction of someone to speak with. I have already spoken with help desk many times one told me to post here now they tell me to post on help desk

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi... This is a link to my most recent post about this subject. As you can see they closed the conversation and wrote "doesn't need an answer" NO I DO need an answer to why this is happening if my account isn't suspended.

You should take that to mean it "should not be answered here but taken up with the staff directly...presumably because they need to discuss your account status, which they will not do here.

I brought this up a couple times in the old thread (why do we now have another-the third-thread about it when staff clearly stated that you were to asked to take the discussion to the Help Desk and the previous two threads were closed?).

I would recommend you stop re-posting it here and do as they've asked you. If your account status is in jeopardy, re-posting closed topics, which is considered flooding, which violates the Terms and Conditions of the site can't help you.  It's likely to just make things worse.

I don't know what to tell ya...other than, there is not much more that can be done here and wish you good luck!

This is frustrating to post but I have no choice. I have been an IMDb user for 10 years and a pro user for 5, I have never had a problem updating legit information for my existing or future projects I'm involved in. I update on projects I act in, and produce. I have submitted over 20 titles before last fall only 2 were rejected. Since November every single submission I make for New titles or updating information for old/current such as trivia, cast, ect has been DECLINED. No reason given just a big red DECLINED. I have contacted several people over this and made posts here. The result was a vague run a round answer. They told me to post here, I did, then they told me to post on the help desk. I did, and was told the same robotic answer. I am beginning to believe My account may have been suspended in some form. Is anyone else having problems updating older titles or adding new ones with legit information?  I can show proof of this. IMDb has declined every bit of trivia I have tried to add to a film I produced recently, it wont allow me to add screening dates, I am willing to provide proof of all my updates but there is no where to add proof. It is also frustrating when it declined titles that have screened and I've even given them direct links to the full film and or trailer. The last time I posted this problem a moderator told me to go back to the help section and closed this conversation. Which I found very strange. Please do not close this conversation I am only trying to solve this issue.

Over the past month, every time I attempt to post a new legit title with evidence of eligibility and or update past and current projects with any legit information, IMDb has declined without any real reason other than "our editors declined it" with a red word "Declined".  I find this very unfair to independent artists who are trying to update resumes and projects. This isn't just affecting one person it affects everyone who worked hard on each project declined. Even with Trivia. It doesn't matter how I word the trivia they decline it. Note: I am doing all these updates on projects I have produced, or been involved in in some form. A few months ago this was not a problem. I have been an IMDb pro user for over a decade. Before recently I had had 2 titles declined for legit reasons. I have always provided sufficient evidence. I respect IMDb's place in preserving film and TV history for commercial AND independent artists. All I want is fair treatment and an explanation to why everything is being declined. Thank you.
