What happens if I delete submission BEFORE it gets reviewed? E.g., I click delete on a submission https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history BEFORE it gets reviewed?

How about, if submission had multipe parts, what if one got reviewed alerady but others were pending and I deleted submission before all parts were reviewed?

How bout, if the entire submission got already reviwed and approved/denied, but I deleted it?

p.s. I made an accienetal submission (
#200324-063444-604000) of which only Alternative title was correct, but the rest wasn't. I deleted it immedeately, but I noticed that while it disappeared from https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history , I still see it in https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history . Is there a way to delete this submision?

Clicking delete has no effect on how the data is processed, as stated at the bottom of the page:

"Please note that deleting a submitted batch does not cancel the submission. It only removes the submission from this history."

Peter is correct. I've made the mistake as well, and sometimes the internet crashes and when I refresh the page (or do back browser), it re-subs the same. So, you raised a good question, and it would be nice if they could implement a button to give us the option to delete a recent submission. Even if a time-restricted one (say 15 min after you sub'd it, or 24hrs or so.)

For TPTB consideration, as your post brings up a problem that I'm sure you and I aren't the only ones who would benefit from its implementation.

Got it, can one of IMDb staff delete #200324-063444-604000 please, before it gets into the data reviewer's cue? Based on Peter's answer, it seems me deleting it from https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history did nothing

Hi piznajko, 

I have deleted this submission and reverted any changes that had already gone live from the submission. These should reflect live on the site shortly. 

Thanks
Meredith
