What happened here? Re Project Veritas videos

I'm in the process of converting the Project Veritas videos, which I had originally submitted as standalone titles, into a series called "Project Veritas."

After I submitted a request to convert "Deep State Unmasked Part I: State Dept on Hidden Cam, Resist Everything, I Have Nothing to Lose," I noticed that this video has already been converted into some kind of pseudo-series with episode titles that I don't recognize.

Didn't I originally submit this title as a standalone? How did it become a series? What should I do about this?

Again, I had already submitted a title type change before I realized that the video was now a series. Here is my submission number: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/update?load=190611-144320-706000

I found the videos that must be what the episode titles refer to.

"I Have Nothing to Lose" - http://archive.fo/jeM8B
"I Break Rules Every Day" - http://archive.fo/zAK8Y
"Can't Get Fired" - http://archive.fo/lQ1Dh

You could probably convert these video into their own series, but the series should simply be called "Deep State Unmasked." I think they would be better as part of the wider series called "Project Veritas."

Hi J. -

If the listed series title and episodes for "Deep State Unmasked" are actually episodes of the existing series title "Project Veritas", then you will need to submit the episode title corrections, correcting the name of the series and modifying the episode numbers as needed.  Once all the episodes have been correctly moved to the correct series title page, you can then request to merge the incorrect series title "Deep State Unmasked" with "Project Veritas".

Let me know if you encounter any issues submitting the updates!

Thank you!

It seems that the three episodes of "Deep State Unmasked" are duplicates of three existing episodes on "Project Veritas," so I submitted requests to merge.

Each of these two properly warned me that I was about to merge an episode:

https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/update?load=190612-143634-896000

But this one didn't warn me.

Did I do something wrong?

Hi J. -

That's odd that the Warning doesn't display for this episode, I was able to replicate this as well.  I can see that your request was submitted correctly and is pending review, so everything you submitted on your end was correct.
