This is already under consideration as part of the new site (no ETA); viewtopic.php?p=32123#p32123
Since there seems to be an influx of whining about series orders lately (thanks Terra Nova), I figured I might as well post about this. Development of the new site continues, but I've made a couple of key decisions and at least partially implemented them. I've also spoken with a couple of key API developers so they know what's coming. Most of you know that the new site will have additional flexibility for our season orders. Now, nothing is completely nailed down yet, so any of this may change and anyone planning on whining about it at some point can direct their complaints to hikaricore (expect a "honey badger" response).
In a nutshell we'll be adding a "Popular" order in addition to the air date (will be referred to as "Official"), absolute, and DVD orders. We also have the code in place where we can easily add additional order types, like director's preferred, unsplit storyline (possibly for cartoons like Phineas and Ferb, where we currently split two part episodes) etc. Each series will require a mod to enable alternate order types beyond official, DVD, and absolute. The "Popular" order will be used in instances where there is a very strong demand for an order that varies from the official listing (hello again, Terra Nova). People will still have to post a valid reason for requiring an alternate order to be enabled. The exact rules for this will be determined at a later date.
(Highlighting is my emphasis not szsori's, just to remind people that things may change and features added/removed until the new site is complete)
