Title not changing after edits

For about a month now, I've been trying to fix the title of an episode of Jane the Virgin.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6246742/

The current title is "Chapter Fifty Four". It should be "Chapter Fifty-Four". I know it seems silly but it bothers me that the hyphen, which is the correct way to write the number, is missing.

My first attempt of changing it on February 7 (Contribution #170207-231851-903000). I tried again on February 13 (Contribution #170213-202436-170000) and again on February 25 (Contribution #170225-215239-664000). Usually, these process within 3 days but none of these seem to have had any affect. Any idea why this isn't changing?

Hi Adrian,

The reason your contributions were not being accepted is because "Chapter Fifty-Four" was already listed as an alternative title. After researching the title I can confirm that the hyphen should be in place and so I have now made this the primary text which should display live on the site shortly.

Thanks

Thanks. I would have never thought to look at alternative titles, especially for a TV episode. Is this something that the system should give a warning for? I know it gives warnings for other issues, like when I changed an episode title to the same title as another episode in the series.

Meredith,

I thought it wasn't possible to create alternative titles for episodes. I also can't find a way to add an alternative title to an episode. Can you explain how to add an alternative title to an episode?

Marco.

Hi Marco,

Apologies, my explanation was not complete on that front. It is not possible to add an alternative title to an episode, the one on this episode had derived from two episodes being merged together and it did not display on the site, however our systems recognized the title change as a duplicate and could not make the correction.

Thanks
Meredith

Ah I see. Thanks for explaining Meredith.
