Title corrections pending

Dear IMDB staff,
I am writing with reference to the following title modifications:
The latter is a double of the film here (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0354870/) and the correct year is 1908. They should be merged together.
These are silent films and some are also lost, so I supplied all the best available and reliable historic and modern sources.
My suggestion is that you cannot apply usual evaluation standards to early
films, and it would be correct if the title match the official records
of the producing and ditributing company which, luckily, offers a great
online database (freely available). Many times, like in these cases, the
alternate titles for these films already on IMDB are a further proof
of the original titles.
As a last thing, the fact that for the first three films my title corrections relate to titles already in the AKA section is not the main point. I am suggesting that, for each one of these films, one of the AKA titles is actually the original one and I think this should be put as primary title in each case.
Thank you!

Thank you for your post.

The submissions you have made to AKAs do not state you wish to change the primary display text, please re-submit stating for clarity what you are trying to achieve to prevent them being rejected as a duplicate again.

I have merged the latter two titles on your behalf.

I hope this helps!

Dear Jaime
thank you for your reply. Regretfully, the issue is not solved.
I update other corrections exactly according to the instructions here (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/title-corrections/G7J57QHX9CAN989N#). The new update numbers are:





If you cannot see as if it is done properly, I think there might a be a technical problem (and, indeed, I can see the tracking button which, according to this other link, https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/contribution-information/when-will-my-update-be-added/GEK...#, I should not see being them title corrections).
Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.
