Deleted series are appearing in Favorites API?

Postby tv68347 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 5:03 am

Is anyone else getting deleted series appearing in their favorites list of series?

It is like if a series has been added to the site and you have added it as a favorite but the series has since been deleted it still remains when you ask for your list of favorites but you have no means of knowing it has been deleted?

For example the series The Rookie has been deleted (several times) but you can still view its details via
https://thetvdb.com/api/xyz/series/347462/all/en.xml
https://thetvdb.com/api/xyz/series/349829/all/en.xml

and if you view your favorites 347462 and 349829 is still output in the results when using
https://thetvdb.com/api/User_Favorites. ... ountid=uvw

Can something be added to en.xml so you can tell it is a invalid series?

Many thanks

I have tried the "new" user/favorites route but the json data for favorites still includes deleted series.

For example, I have 349317, 348626 and 347793 all being listed for new Charmed but only 349317 is actually active.

Does anyone have any suggestions on removing the deleted series ids from the favorite list?

Thanks
