I found an interview with actress Annabella Sciorra  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001711 at  http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/theater/annabella-sciorra-brooklyn-to-broadway-1.2820869  where she specifically states that she was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and was NOT born in Connecticut. 

She says in the 2011 interview in response to the question: 

Since I've read conflicting stuff, let me ask: Are you or are you not a native New Yorker?


Thank you!  I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and I still live here. There's a bunch of wrong information about me online that, once it gets onto certain websites, they consider it like the Bible, and you can't change it. I was not born in Connecticut, I am not Cuban and French, both of my parents are from Italy. Oh, and I've never lived in New Orleans -- that's another one.

After submitting an update to the IMDB (#200607-212750-817000) to change her place of birth from Wethersfield, Connecticut to Brooklyn, New York citing this interview, it was rejected stating: "Your contribution has been declined.We did not capture a specific reason during processing.".

Can someone tell me why this submission was rejected?  Was this an error on the part of the  IMDB or have I misunderstood the requirements for submission in some way?

It's been a week.  In your opinion, how long should I wait before I should assume that I'm not going to get a reply from staff/employee and what should I do after that?

Amazon/IMDb headquarters is in Seattle.
Maybe they are all having a "Summer of Love"
With COVID and they're being in Seattle you might give a little extra time!

Right.  For some reason, even though I knew Amazon bought the IMDB, I was still under the impression they were operating out of the U.K or working remotely from home, wherever that might be.
