Same issue I had a year ago - trying to add a music video title but I can't submit and can't figure out what the problem is. Help?

Do I have to give you screen grabs or can you just check it out via the link above?

Hi, Jen. The submission form will contain warning messages upon a yellow background, or rejection messages upon a red background, for the items that need special attention. Insight as to why the "Submit these updates" button is not appearing can be gathered from those messages.

Hello, Jen.

Adding to what Jeorj Euler says: that sometimes indeed happens when submission form thinks that there's not enough essential information. At times it happens when all needed information seems to be provided and in cases like that I usually click on "Submit explanation" and write in the field which appears above that all available information was provided. So far that worked like a charm and sometimes there are cases when there's not much information available (music videos often have that problem although some have convenient credits at least in alternate versions/director cuts).

For a movie, the fourth stage of the title addition form looks like...

There's usually a problem with Major Credits in music videos, since at times you really need to dig deeper to have some.

Thanks guys. I'm familiar with how to add and the pink/yellow/green screens. My problem with this particular add is that I can't figure out WHAT is missing/wrong.

On the "provide explanation" spot at the top it specifically says to not put information in that box but instead below. But then there aren't places to do that/I don't know which part is a problem.

Jen: Could you post the screen captures here showing your entire submission form? The contributors here will likely be able to figure out the problem from that. Otherwise, you will have to wait for the staff to respond.

Jen: The problem I see is that in the Production Information section, where you need to submit 1 out of 4 pieces of information -- Budget, Official Site, Distributor, or Production Company -- there isn't anything listed there.

If you have an entry for any of those items, please enter it. If you don't know that information, you should provide an explanation as to why that information is not available and why the video should nevertheless be included in the database. That explanation would go in the "Explanation for missing information" (above the Mandatory Information).

On a related note, the Major Credits section is cut off in your screen captures above (page 4/6 is missing). I see that you have Shane MacGowan listed in the Cast, but I don't know whether you have at least two additional Major Credits listed as well. If you do, that's good, but if you don't, again, you should address that in the "Explanation for missing information".

I hope this helps. Good luck!
