Error updating timeline - says dates are wrong

Hi,

It's been a while since I have updated our timeline since we are now at the 2-year removal of restrictions part of our process.

I got a friendly email reminding me to update my timeline so I went to the "Lifting data section" of my timeline and entered the correction dates. When I submitted the changes, I got an error for previously-entered dates for the following:

National Visa Center Processing Date Package Received By NVC : (yyyy-mm-dd) Date Case #, IIN, and BIN assigned : (yyyy-mm-dd) *Error* Date Package Left From NVC : (yyyy-mm-dd)
Consulate Processing *Error* Date Received By Consulate : (yyyy-mm-dd)

The error on the next page says:

WARNING: There appears to be a mistake in your form!

One of the dates or entries you entered seems to be incorrect. Here are a few common reasons why:

ball.gif Some dates may be entered incorrectly or out of order (ex: An NOA2 date before and NOA1 date).

ball.gif Time between when a petition (ex: I-129F) was mailed to the USCIS and the NOA1 (Notice of Receipt) may be too long. NOA1s (the date on the form itself) should be within four weeks (max) of the date you originally sent the form to the USCIS.

Click the button below to return to the previous screen to fix the problem (problems will highlighted in red).

However, these are truly the dates things happened in our case. We had a consulate-related problem that took much longer than the normal processing time. I'm guessing that's what the error is for but I am not sure. Anyone have any ideas? those are the only two dates that show any error.

Thanks,

Tim

Ideally I would like to have the dates as they truly are. I didn't have any problems adding the dates as they were a while back, was there some sort of change or restriction to the amount of time that can go between dates?

Attached are two pictures.

"Lifting.jpg" are the dates I'm trying to add to my timeline.

"errors.jpg" are the dates (which were previously entered and saved a long time ago) which give me errors when I try to add the Lifting dates.

Thank you,

Tim
