I've actually reached a point where finding no-runtime films that can be easily updated has become noticeably more difficult. I'm not finding long chains of updatable TV episodes anymore, and a lot of the films I update are international (usually Indian or Middle-Eastern) and have zero checks.

Yeah, I asked Marijn right after he fixed the IMDb-link of the right page. But I guess he didn't read it.
Unfortunately the dupefixer doesn't catch this dupe.

Yeah, I think the order of operations on the dupe fixer is:
Does this link go where it's supposed to?
Does this other link go where it's supposed to?
If both yes or both no, then ignore.
If one yes and one no, does link that doesn't go where it's supposed to go to the link of the other?
If yes then dupe, if no ignore.

So it doesn't actually compare the links directly and wouldn't trigger in this case.

Big thanks to "nbatman" for adding about 200 trivial video games to the ICM database all at once. Eyeroll.

Apologies. :unsure:

It was my understanding that all video games were automatically filtered out, so when I saw things like Portal, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed ect, I figured the "ban" was lifted, so I imported my game ratings from imdb without much thought. If games are going to be allowed, I don't see any good reason to include some but not others based on nothing but their popularity.

They aren't allowed but the parser seems incapable of keeping them out. You saw popular games because those are more likely to be in someone's imported ratings from imdb.

I see, that makes sense. I completely agree that they shouldn't be allowed, so again I really do apologize for adding so many. I will obviously exclude all games from my imports in the future. It was not my intent to create a bunch of extra work for you guys, so if there's any way I can help fix my mistake please let me know. I went through and unchecked every game I had checked.

IMDb believes this film is 57 hours long. It actually is 57 MINUTES long. As yet, my correction has not been accepted.

Did you track your contribution to see if it's still pending or if it's been rejected?

They say it's pending, but I've made 1,500+ submissions to IMDb and most of them were accepted within about 10 minutes.

I don't know what exactly triggers manual review, but there are certain things that seem to. Additions seem to go through easier than edits or removals, for example. It's possible the big difference in runtime here triggers a manual review.

Yes. I think the longest I've had to wait for something on Pending is 3-4 days, and it's always something where I've deleted and replaced a credit, or made modifications to something existing. Additions are almost always accepted within 10 minutes for me as well.

Right, corrections do take longer than additions. As yet, the length still hasn't been fixed. Maybe the film wouldn't have zero IMDb ratings if people weren't scared off by its extreme length. ;)

Bleh. Still not accepted, even though the site said they'd process it by January 15th. Meanwhile, I've had 11 runtime submissions accepted in the time since then....

FINALLY accepted. This film has zero ICM checks and zero IMDb ratings, so it was important to get fixed.

Hrm, I don't know how to tell IMDb this film's primary date should be 1924 rather than 2000. ICM is missing this film's IMDb runtime, but I don't want to hit "the Ebby button" because updating would switch the ICM year to 2000. And I'm sure that would terribly upset "jwerty."

I ran into this issue last month. I think there's a bug, but the imdb staff can fix it if you bring it to their attention: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/con ... 2a90aabbbb

3439 pages of no-runtimers, almost two months later. Much harder to cut it down now. Hard to keep ahead of the no-runtime films and TV episodes steadily being added every day.

On the other hand, I was recently going through the huge "Directed by Women" lists. I figured I'd find some films that were missing A.K.A. titles, but I never imagined how many films I'd find with missing *directors*. On a list with a director theme! Can't we do better than this? I've improved parts 2 and 3...I'll start on part 1 next. I wish more people cared about this stuff.

I am bothered by this, but wasn't fully aware of the update feature and am not using the Beta, so the whole director function is half-dead for after 2016, anyway ..

And I do not like that.

I followed the process to add missing director and genres on this movie: https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/metamorfeus/

The update went fine and is visible in beta https://beta.icheckmovies.com/movies/30 ... etamorfeus but not yet in the current version of icm. Is it normal? does it take longer?

Yes, that's normal. I don't know how long it takes, I think maybe 30-60 minutes, but if it shows up in the Beta version, it will show up in the current version eventually.

This page won't allow a director to be added, for some reason.

Doesn't work for me either. Everything looks hunky dory on imdb, so perhaps it's stuck in a queue.

Did someone else do some major, intense work on filling in runtimes or removing orphaned films?

I haven't looked at the "no runtime" situation in over a day but, the last I looked, there were 3429 beta pages of no-runtime films. Or around 3429 x 50 films.

Now today, I look again and suddenly it's down to a round *3400* pages. Which means almost 1,500 films fewer within a day or so. Wha?

Btw, not sure if I asked you before, but do you use some kind of automated process to find movies without runtime on iCM that do have a runtime on IMDb?

Mh, I know we had this before, but I can't remember the reaction:
Puisi tak terkuburkan (2000) picks the UK aka from IMDb, not world-wide - according to Wikipedia, the title should be rather "A Poet" or "A Poet: Unconcealed Poetry".
