I've submitted these two facts multiple different times, but THEY WON'T GO THROUGH. I even used the private message system, but unfortunately, they told me to use the "Track contribution" feature and they refuse to approve my facts. Why can't they do it? They keep giving me the wrongest answers and I've waited long enough. 200120-201451-991000

As of this posting (1/24/2020), the oldest Trivia item is from January 15th. So your update has not been reviewed by an IMDb representative due to a backlog of almost 1000 unprocessed items.

I said I submitted both of these facts but nobody in the IMDb staff cares. I learned them from a behind the scenes documentary.

Here are the trivia items I wrote for "The Swan Princess" (https://imdb.com/title/tt0111333/):

"An early villain song for Rothbart was sung by Jack Palance, but it felt too evil and dark for the writers' liking and that the villain's song needs to be lifted and toned down. As a result, composer [name=nm0207185] and lyricist [name=nm0957138] came up with the lighter and more upbeat song "No More, Mr. Nice Guy", which would be sung by Azevedo himself. (The producers have searched for the right performer to provide Rothbart's singing voice, but after a difficult time, they decided to have Azevedo perform.)"

"The scene with Bromley practice-shooting an arrow and Derek catching it to shoot the apple on his head originally had Bromley wear no suit of armor. As a response to a breaking news story surrounding a disaster associated with the movie [link=tt0107889], in which a teen copied that film's stunt and was killed, the animators changed the original footage of the scene to have Bromley wear a full suit of armor, so that no one would copy the arrow trick unless they also wear a full suit of armor."

Needs shortening. It is too long. Don't quote me on this, but IMDb prefers 50 words on trivia. I believe I read that on a reply by a staff member somewhere..

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/trivia/G42ZNVNNQT6P78FE?ref_=helpsrall#

2. Style & Grammar

  • Do write only in English.
  • Do keep your submissions short and easy to read.
  • Do write all submissions in the present tense.
  • Do not use ALL CAPS.
  • Do not use chat-speak or text-speak.
Shortened:

A song for the character of Rothbart sung by Jack Palance, needed toning down as it was determined "too dark." Composer [name=nm0207185] and lyricist [name=nm0957138] developed a lighter and more upbeat song replacement. Palances and other dubbing voices were not right, so it was actually dubbed by Azevedo himself.

49 Words...If I counted correctly.

Apply this to the second trivia and resubmit both.

Yes I do.
Staff knows this.
I get replies removed every so often also.
And it is unnecessarily harsh.

I hereby ask you from now on not to respond to threads I've started.

"Ed, I'm not saying filmfanatic10 is an angel."
But Marco, I'm only trying to help here!

I haven't said anything about you. I only said that there was something that I didn't say about you.

You were last asked by Elizabeth, Employee this question.........
Hi there, do you have a previous example that was not approved? Please provide the submission reference number.

But you are asking (Spamming) the same question and not answering what was asked.....




4. CODE OF CONDUCT



4.2.3 Use of derogatory, discriminatory or excessively graphic language.


4.2.8 Sending unwanted messages to other users (aka "spam").
Asking the same question over 50 times IS spam.
Especially, after the last reply by staff was a request for a reference number.
You have just sent an unwanted,unneeded and unwarranted message.


Please answer or discontinue spamming.
Thanks.
