soundtrack as on screen rejected (Never Again a Tomorrow)

Some time ago I contributed correction for Never Again a Tomorrow (2017) Soundtracks. Both updating the existing few entries and completing the list.

See: https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/190313-182454-803000

Looking back, only first item was accepted and the others rejected as "Badly Formatted", but I can't tell really why. I remember that I made considerable effort to understand the formatting instructions but I wanted to follow "exactly as its shown in the movie" most.

The first item shows that using colon instead of "by" is accepted. None of the examples separate Music from Lyrics. How can this information be kept as in movie credit if "written by"format is mandatory? 

The "Rør ved meg" entry refers to the source artist and translation rather than "written by" format. Would it work or is that too far from the rigid format? The "Om lidt" item has an IMDB id by one of the companies. I knew that's not working so I don't remember if I did that following an example I found or not, but it can be removed if that's the problem. 

I notice that the report page removes all line breaks, so I don't remember what I did, assuming I had line breaks after each "fact". Also seeing "SOUNDTRACKADDITION" for each of the entries may be a hint. Is there a conflict with the items already listed, they were supposed to be replaced rather than kept as is. 

So, if anyone can advice how to get these entries passed and if there's a possibility to clarify the help page with more varied examples or some other advice for the future contributions.

Only staff can see your submission.
We as users cannot give help unless you were to post your submission as submitted on the edit page. (Screen shot)

Then maybe another user can help.
I know that I cannot, but I'm pretty sure that someone might give you some tips.

Thanks Ed! Your comment helped me find the "resend" edit page, where line breaks are preserved. I don't have the movie at hand (I did this effort months ago) but looking at the line breaks I think I tried to follow on screen format closely. I can see how item 3 may not follow the format. And is there a way to keep the year with out the comma, if that's the problem in #2?

Here's a link (for my convenience) and screen shot where everything is green.

Everything is marked in green, but the entries are not in the movie page. In  "track contribution" it shows that 3 were rejected.



Here are the text entries if anyone wants to use them for formatting suggestions:

"En dag er ikke levet uden kærlighed"
Music & Lyrics: [link=nm0284281], [link=nm0618104] & [link=nm0618113]
Copyright: Edition Wilhelm Hansen AS

"I skovens dybe, stille ro"
Lyrics: Fritz Andersen, 1864
Music: Traditional melody

"Rør ved meg"
By Lecia & Lucienne
"Eres tù" ([link=nm0129605])
Translator: [link=nm0803735]
Copyright: Universal Music Publishing AB
[Sung by the young daughter (uncredited) unaccompanied at the funeral]

"Om lidt"
Music: [link=nm0488817]
Lyrics: [link=nm0488817] & [link=nm0843237] (as Leif "Sylvester" Petersen)
Publishing year: 1986
Record company: Medley Records (IMDb link=co0179752])
Recording: On LP "Forklædt som voksen", with [link=nm2261697]

(I see that I missed on "[" in the last entry, but I'll not resend this until I got some more feedback on the format.)

I can see on the last one that you did indeed miss a square bracket for the link, but you put the name in parenthesis. I don't think that's allowed. After Medley Records there is no ":"
If you were to look at the approved one and apply the same formatting uni-formally to the other three rejections, you should be OK.
But wait for another to give their opinion.
I have done zero soundtrack submissions. Done lots of others. But I have yet to tackle one.
Cheers
Ed

P.S.
Sung by: young daughter (uncredited) or maybe, Sung by: young daughter at funeral (uncredited)
Not.....[Sung by the young daughter (uncredited) unaccompanied at the funeral]
Definitely do not use square bracketing. Also, it should not read like a full sentence.


"I skovens dybe, stille ro"
Lyrics: Fritz Andersen, 1864
Music: Traditional melody

Probably should be:

"I skovens dybe stille ro"
Lyrics: Fritz Andersen (1864)
Music: Traditional melody

Hi JAG,

Was this exactly as the soundtrack items were listed in the end credits? The square brackets is the correct format to use when indicating where the song appears as confirmed in the guide - https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/soundtracks/GKD97LHE9TQ49CZ7?ref_=helpsrall#

Thanks,
Will
