And another one not in list yet:

Steve Martin (1945): Famous actor and writer, e.g. in The Man with Two Brains, Roxanne, Sgt. Bilko, The Pink Panther, ...
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000188/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Martin
http://www.filmreference.com/film/11/Steve-Martin.html
http://www.whoswho.de/templ/te_bio.php?PID=1292&RID=1

Steve Martin (xxxx), also Steve Earl Martin: Animal trainer. In database as actor in Babe: Pig in the City
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0553089/
http://www.workingwildlife.com/pages/3504/Steve_and_Donna_Martin.htm (pic of him)

Don't want to start this discussion again, but until he's more often credited as Steve Martin, than something different, I think the BY is correct as accepted.

Edit: And there's another actor Steve Martin (xxxx) in database for Remember the Titans:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0553091/
... And perhaps some more possible I didn't check yet.

This more like a personal curiosity.

I contributed details for Paul Smith (1947).
He is added on the list in first page at 31st of May.
When I try to contribute profile changes where he is included, system tells that he has not yet been accepted.

There seems to be difference between that list and system.

How long time it takes when he (or somebody else) is accepted in the system?

Once a contribution adding the birth year has been approved, it's in the system immediately.

There is. There's no guarantee that all birth years listed here have actually been submitted. People often document the need for a birth year by detailing two people with the same name, while only having one of them in their local database. As such, both are documented here, but that user only submits one of them. That's one possible reason for some of these. The other is that Invelos has, at least on one occasion but maybe more often, cleaned out their own list of accepted birth years in an attempt to get rid of some unneeded ones. As such, a few birth years that may have been accepted before, will need re-documenting to get them back on the "approved"-list. The documentation listed in this thread should help getting that done.

So I need to submit a profile which includes this person with BY, after this it will be approved ???

If this is the case, then I have understood this in wrong way.

I submitted one profile but it went straight in situation where system tells that it has been already processed by Invelos without possibility to other users vote for it. Status for submitting remained in received.
I thought that something went wrong and I withdraw it.

This is normal behaviour. Contributions containing a birth year that is not yet on Invelos' "accepted" list will automatically be promoted to "second-level" Invelos review, which indeed means the contribution can't be voted on. Note that "second-level" review doesn't happen at the same time as the "normal" evaluation of contributions, and also isn't done on a very regular basis. As such, it may take well over a week, occassionally even two, before such a contribution is processed.

So yeah: you just need to submit a profile with the missing birth year in it, make sure you document the need for that particular birth year (not just documenting that one, but also showing there's a second person with the same common name), and then it should get accepted.

Of course, thank you for the correction, fortunately in my contributions the BY is the correct one.
