Dear Customer Service. The title of the film NO-ONE ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7374062/ ) is shown now on the main page as NO-ONE (2017). But the release date of the film that is also displayed on the page, was 23 April 2018 at 40th Moscow International Film Festival. So, would you please correct the title into NO-ONE (2018).

Vladimir,

From the IMDb Help Center Page: Release Dates:
Please note that the year in the title is derived from the date of earliest release. This includes any festival release dates.
According to the title's Release Info page, the film was first shown at a film festival in October 2017. So it's not likely an IMDb representative will change the release year to 2018.

According to the contributor ref. 181120-195112-480000 dated 2018-11-20, 4 release dates were added and release date 2017-10-07 in Israel was deleted, and that was accepted by IMDb based on a proper explanation. So, the information on the Release Info page about release date in 2017 is incorrect and should be deleted, and the title of the film should be NO-ONE (2018). Thank you for understanding.

As of now, the 2017 Haifa festival date still shows in the release date. Are you sure that the deletion was accepted along your submission?
You can try to check the details on https://contribute.imdb.com/contribut...

Of course the deletion was accepted. After the submission of 2018-11-20 the release date on the front page https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7374062/ was changed from 7 October 2017 into 23 April 2018, but wasn't changed on the Release Info page. It's just an ordinary mistake.

Yes, it is a known former bug and it still occurs occasionnally.
But in the present case and if it was really deleted, the 7 October 2017 date is back, so IMDb will not change the year attached to the title as it is consistent.

Could you please check 181120-195112-480000 in https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history (nobody but you can see it) and confirm that it was deleted at that time? And if not, what reason did IMDb state?

The information on 181120-195112-480000 is absolutely clear - item with release date 2017 was deleted. If it is back somehow, IMDb with Customer Service must delete it again.

Vladimir, there is no such thing as a Customer Service in charge of editing the database. Only contributors do, but also anyone can do it.

The trouble is that this movie shows as being programed on 7 October 2017 at the Haifa Film festival, that can be access through the wayback machine (website snapshot as of 14 Oct 2017):
https://web.archive.org/web/20171014185751/http://www.haifaff.co.il:80/eng/Program



So no wonder that IMDb can accept it.

This is the explanation on 181120-195112-480000 - "The film was not fully completed for the screening in the country of origin at the Festival in Haifa, Israel, and was shown there for in a raw form for press and crew. The film was finally completed at the beginning of 2018 and was screened publically for the first time at the 40th International Film Festival in Moscow in April 2018". And below there is IMDb confirmation of the deletion. So, it was already accepted. Or not??

Hi Vladimir,

your screensot is from the Update History, which is just what you submitted, regardless of the outcome.

IMDb is devising a new tool, with more details. As stated twice before, please go to https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions, look into 181120-195112-480000 and check what is the result for your delete request.

Hi Vladimir -

I reviewed the submission you referenced and noted that the deletion request was not approved as we will need to retain the release date for the
Haifa Film Festival screening. 

Please note that even if the version screened is not the current version, we will consider this a public release and will need to retain the 2017 release date.
