Hi Im trying to add my bio to IMDB Pro and despite my following the code advised for the accent on my name it keeps saying: This item has been rejected. You need to correct this item before it will be accepted. The Unicode character at code point 8203 [​] is not supported.

Lâle,

Are you cutting and pasting the bio into the submission form from Word or any other word processing program? Some hidden characters are resulting in a rejection message.

You can either type the bio directly into the submission or transfer the document from the word processing program to a text editor (Notepad, among others), save the document and cut and paste the bio from Notepad to the submission form.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.

Thanks for your response. I tried what you suggested. I am unfortunately still having problems with it. The code is now 770. Any idea what that means?

Lâle,

Which of the two options did you attempt?

If you've tried both and you're still getting a rejection message, please file a report through the IMDb Contact Us form.
