Problem adding quote on Scream Queens' IMDB Page

I was trying to add a quote on the Scream Queens' IMDB page, and since there are not any quotes by the character on the page yet I had to type in her name instead. I typed it in correctly (and re-checked the spelling 100 times) yet a rejection error keeps coming up that I must choose a name from the cast menu. I also tried using the actress' real name just in case it wanted that for some strange reason. Help please.

Hi, groovyvic. The "Name" field's value will be something other than "Choose"; which in this case, "Unknown" is only option. The fact that there is no way to select Gigi Caldwell (Pedrad, Nasim) is a limitation glitch. Thanks for reporting this.

There aren't many quotes on the page and the only clickable names are those that have already been used in a quote (a lot of the main characters aren't listed in the drop down menu). It doesn't make sense for them to give an option to type in a name if that really isn't an option.... thanks for your response, but something still doesn't add up. hmm

Right, groovyvic. Undoubtedly something does not add up, which is why I referred to this as a "glitch".

So, does Gigi Caldwell say, "It'll be fun, like a Friends episode... but someone's trying to murder all the friends", in every episode? Or is it that you, groovyvic, don't know in which specific episode she says the line? The warning message in the submission form implies a clear preference that the quote be added to the title entry for the specific episode to which it applies.

I don't know what episode it was from, but they just say its preferable if I know the episode. That isn't the reason they're giving for it being rejected.

"This item has been rejected. You need to correct this item before it will be accepted.
  • Please select a name from the cast menu for speaker #1
    If you do not know which cast member spoke this line, please select "Unknown" from the cast name menu instead."

You can get around the rejection message if you sacrifice identifying the actress who plays the part, groovyvic. That's not ideal, so understandably you might decline to go such a route.

Hi both,

This is a known issue. The reason you can select any of the characters on the series level dropdown is due to the old functionality from the past before episodes were created as a data type. You need to add the quote at the episode level, there you will be able to select the correct actress from the dropdown results.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

That isn't actually true because I tried to add another quote for which I knew the episode and it was not available in the dropdown menu

Their are a lot of missing Characters in the drop down menu(12 out of 18 missing). And if you use other and enter it manually it does not work.

Its not the Quote. Its the Character Name. Until someone like you or I enter a character name and give them a Quote they are not in the drop down. Its confusing. Jeorj is smart and I dont know if he understands yet. Unknown by the character quote database. Did you ever notice that on an episode level that the characters name can be black (no link) and on others blue (link)? This is accomplished when a character name is submitted. But it wont work unless you choose, "unknown".

I can't enter a character name until a character name has been entered but if I enter a character name a character name can be entered? or I have to enter it thru an episode and then once it's entered under an episode it can be entered under the main tv show.......................wAt

Have not gone that far yet. Just know how to on the episode level with an unknown character name to the database. Lets do it episode level. Wait for Live. Then see if it can then be done on Series level. You know how to get my attention. Just find something I have replied to in the last 15 min. I'll help you get it through if you are still having trouble. I'd put it in myself, but I know you want to know how its done

Obtaining a "green screen" is only half the objective in a submission. The full objective is for a properly-formatted information item to go live on the site. If this is a matter analogous to comparing apples and oranges, then it should be clear that apples are wanted and oranges are not, or vice versa. It's not an "either one will suffice" situation. Capisce?

Live is a lemon. Apples was fixed. Your talking oranges.
Why Am I wrong. She could not make a submission. I solved the submission problem
I only did what the page wanted done to make it green
What/? Did I somehow "Fool" the page.
I figured it out.
You did not. Why am  I wrong? Tell me what was wrong.
Repeating again. I followed what the instructions on the page said to do.
It is that simple.

If you actually reply with any more points to justify your position I think it's best you start a new thread and we'll see what others think. I would only ask that you take my green screen and paste it and ask this simple question.

Is this the correct way to make a Quote submission?.
Nothing other than The Picture screen grab. and the title above, with the same thing repeated in the description. Just copy and paste only this.
Remember, I will not reply on this topic here. I will on a new thread.

The objective is for the role description (or character name) to appear as a hyperlink to the name page of the portrayer of that character, in terms of identifying the being who expresses the line or group of lines. That is the bottom line.

I wonder who did it. I just did it for 1.1 Pilot. Peter said it was submitted for 1.2
Here is a ready to submit example on the series level. I just duplicated what I had done on an Episode Level it Works

By the way if you will notice The "Charater Name" followed by "(Name, Actor)" is the same format in the dropdown menu that has the available only for the 5 out of the 19 series regulars.

Your Quote "Boner" is not in 1.2. The one above is. Peter must not have gone to this page. Now I dont have to remove my submission. Image result for bandaged head emoji

My decision about that is pending, I suppose. I cannot honestly claim to have the answer to everything.

We are pals. He has given me a lot of likes and I have to him. We are disagreeing. Just like a good married couple. I like Jeorj. He is very smart. We are not having a confrontation. I'm Fred Flintstone he is my pal Barney Rubble. Groovyvic is Betty and I asked her for some help. You don't want to lose a Pal. We worked out our differences. Thank you snuggles for your help but Jeorj and I are fine.

I just added a series level quote to Star Trek that went through. It is easy once you got the hang of it. I could do one every 75 seconds if I was a typist and not a 2 finger guy!

Please see the submission guide:

"Please submit quotes for television shows to the relevant episode. Quotes submitted at series level should represent repeated lines or themes of the show. Please note that on some parent series listings it is possible to link to certain characters and not others. This is caused by historical functionality pre-dating the episode specific ttconsts. In these cases please add the quotes for those characters directly to the relevant episodes."

and

"Please do not wrap the quoted line in quotation marks."
