What does one have to do to get information corrected on IMDB?

I have twice now tried to correct Maude Hirst's dob on her profile. The current date given (1993) is incorrect. I have even provided IMDB with official records on a British Government website, but yet the update has now been declined twice.

The actress Maude Hirst (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2542123/) also owns a Yoga business. This can be confirmed at https://www.maudehirstyoga.com/home.

The official records for this business can be accessed at Companies House (an official Government website): https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11529033/officers.

The company records confirm that Hirst's dob is February 1988, not 1993. Either she or her legal representative would have submitted this information.

Government records should be enough, but if further proof is required birth records show that there was only Maude Hirst born between 1985 and 1995 in the UK (in 1988): https://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/results?firstname=maude&lastname=hirst&sourcecategory=li...

I have provided compelling evidence and yet each time my submission is declined on the grounds of "Your contribution has been declined.We have been unable to verify your contribution. "

This is clearly bullshit. I have easily provided enough information for you to verify, and if Government records are not compelling enough then what is? How can users trust the information in IMDB when something can be proven to factually inaccurate and the site refuses to correct?

Hi Meredith,

My submission number is:

 #200110-055450-108000

I appreciate that submissions must be carefully vetted (especially in the case of living people) but I simply cannot fathom why my submission cannot be verified. A more detailed reply explaining what is wrong with my submission would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
L0GAN5

Hi L0GAN5, 

I have resubmitted this information on your behalf and the changes should be live on the site shortly. Some evidence provided is not available to the public without requiring a login to access which can make it difficult for our data editors to verify. 

Thanks
Meredith
