I wrote an approved for an episode of Star Trek DS9 and it was not approved even though it was well-written and thoughtful.

There doesn't seem to be any reason given it was not approved either.

Could you post your contribution number here.
You can find that 18 digit number here at,
https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history

Also when on that page it does state the reason.
Post it too here.
More than likely it will say "does not meet guidelines", but post the reason anyway,.
Thanks

If you select the "view contribution details" it will reveal the reason.

Hi there,

Thank you for inquiring about your data submission.

If you submitted credits or other information to IMDb.com and the data hasn't appeared online yet, please read the following documentation which includes the most common reasons why updates may be delayed or rejected:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/when-will-my...

If you feel that your rejected submission doesn't fall into any of the categories described on that page and you have verified that it's not already listed in the database, you're welcome to resubmit it once. However if it still doesn't appear, it means that our editors were unable to process it and/or felt that it didn't satisfy our acceptance criteria. While we welcome additions and corrections, please keep in mind that updates are accepted at our discretion and that we reserve the right to withdraw or reject information at any time.

Thank you for your understanding.

Are you a moron? Did I wrote that I submitted "credits"? No. I said I submitted a REVIEW. It even says so in the title. So why are you posting this bullshit automated response? Fucking useless retard.

Copy pasting an irrelevant section of text is your idea of help? Then please don't help anyone, ever.

It does NOT say reason that's what I'm saying. Anywhere. IT ONLY SAYS "NOT APPROVED".

On a PC (non mobile device) Go here.
https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history

On the declined line there is a view contribution details. Mouse over it and click (select) it. Your details will appear.

Friend, I've clicked there. The only thing that comes up there is the text of my own review. No reason why it was not approved.

That was submitted back when the beta tracking was still having glitches. This is 6 months old.

Just copy and paste it again as a new review.
Betcha it goes through.

But you gotta leave out that statement thing that contains the part about "Americans are religious fundamentalists"!!! That whole sentence. And leave out "Infidel". It's funny, and I like it, but the IMDb "censors/editors" have no sense of humor!!!

That will definitely trigger a rejection.

And just to be double sure of not getting a declined, label it as having spoilers. It really does not, but most all if not everybody at IMDb is a Trek fan and they are really picky about Star Trek stuff.

Good Luck

Finally a useful response. Very well, thank you! I will resubmit it, and I think I will not censor it. If they don't approve it I will resubmit it again and again until they do. Because frankly, what I wrote is not even so upsetting. Unless you're a bajoran.
