Why Does IMDB Constantly Reject any deletions made in regards to credits in episodes or documentaries that are not listed in the credits and cannot be proven to have even worked on that particular series or whatever program you are trying to add credits to, you can add 'Fake ' credits but cannot have anything deleted, as it always comes back 'Unable To Verify', Why Don't they watch the episodes like i do and they will see in the credits that the person is NOT listed in the credits at all..., They ask us to contribute to IMDB but when we do it gets rejected every time time so why should anyone bother to contribute to this site when you give them the truth and they don't take any notice even if you tell them where to watch the episode in question and offer proof you still get rejected with the exact same 'Unable To Verify' explanation, How did they manage to verify that it was listed in the credits in the first placeand why didn't they put in the rest of the credits themselves instead of 1 or 2 false ones, but they never explain that, and you cant complete the the crew or cast list and say that it's correct and complete with erroneous credits listed that should be removed until they have proof that that person WAS listed in the credits for that particular episode, Movie, Documentary or whatever else that may have been part of..its pointless contributing to to a site when the site itself would rather have the wrong information on it and than have correct information and become a well respected site, but IMDB is has become a laughingstock for people as as eople won't even use the site as they know most of the information is Absolutely incorrect and is not allowed to be corrected, it needs better people in charce of it...

Please post the 18-digit reference number(s) of the submission(s) so an IMDb representative can review the updates and respond.

The 18 digit reference number is 190810-132527-381000, this is not the only post that has been rejected with ‘unable to verify’

Thank You... the next one that needs to be looked into is 190805-015236-522000...and the next one is 190730-011909-038000...and then 190729-021837-758000... this is for starters, there is a lot more to go as these have all been declined for the exact same reason "Unable to Verify", but how did they 'Verify" that they should be there in the first place?...The Episodes are on Youtube to watch and review the same as i do, but this isn't being done.

Thanks Mark, I've resubmitted 190810-132527-381000 now. In the case of 190805-015236-522000 and 190730-011909-038000 could this role not just be uncredited? Someone would have had to edit the title. For 190729-021837-758000 Ivan Owen did co-create the character of Basil Brush - see https://www.theguardian.com/news/2000/oct/20/guardianobituaries 

In light of this then instead the credit should be edited to include the (uncredited) attribute. 

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Will

Thank You Will, i am grateful for your help, yet i have a couple more that need investigation...190828-122702-661000 this one was 'Approved' but not changed... so i resubmitted it here...190829-115318-376000 and then it was declined as 'Unable to Verify' again, why accept it then reject the exact same credit?  then i added this one only to be declined again for a different episode but the same rejection, These episodes are on youtube and we have told the staff at IMDB but they still come back with the same old excuse 'Unable to Verify', why say this when we can prove our point, but IMDB staff ignore us, hope you can help in this matter as well Thank You.

Hi mark -

I have now approved the credit/character name update and the change should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
