Questions about Rejected Teaser

I recently had a teaser rejected - Double Feature 9. It is much like a rebus, but does not meet the requirements to submit as a rebus (the rebus must be a phrase), as the solution is a movie title. So I submitted in the Other category. The teaser was rejected for not qualifying in the Other category. No other explanation, such as having a construct problem, was given. One editor accepted, three rejected.

Assuming that the construction of the teaser is OK, then in what category should it be submitted? Or does the teaser itself have to be modified in some way to make it acceptable?

Thank you,

Your teaser didn't work as a Rebus which is why it was submitted in the Other category. The problem we had was that it was a Rebus that didn't work as a Rebus and was submitted in another category. We have had several rejected Rebus teasers resubmitted in different categories and rejected those as well because those were attempts to get around a rejected Rebus teaser.

Because we rejected those other "resubs" from other members (not any of yours), we could not approve yours. Maybe a few small changes would take away any thoughts of a Rebus. I hope this explains why your teaser was rejected...

SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!
