Anytime friend.

But seriously if expect to be able to come in and ask the same question that has been asked a dozen times already... you know what the definition of insanity is by any chance?

That was the idea. It obviously is a problem for quite a few of us and I thought you could just put it to rest by renaming one show...
Allowing us poor plebs to have one extra dtb entry to make us happy...

Are we fools? In your eyes we probably are! ...but you can't take our dreams!! No way sir! ;)

Search for Mythbusters on here. Just because a change is popular doesn't mean it is correct.

looks fine to me...maybe I'm thick... My problem is, that episodes that were actually aired do not show here on tvdb. I don;t even see, how it would create confusion.
Maybe he rules stipulate only one entry per show. But really, no wiggle room?

Long Way Round - 7 episodes
Long Way Round Special Ed.- 9 episodes + 1 special

TVrage can do it and does not seem to create confusion. I don't know... I still don't get why would this be such a problem.

I don't want to piss you guys off, just can't wrap my head around this...

Let's get down to the basics of the situation so we're all on the same page. This series aired once, then aired again with extra scenes and spaced out most of the same content across more episodes. Is that correct? If so then how is it any different than any number of shows which have aired extended episodes (which we don't allow) or released the same on dvd/bluray (which we also don't allow)? When we start making exceptions of any kind which contradict the rules it sets precedents which only serve to undermine said rules.

Fair play. Thanks for your explanation.

It was the first time in dozens of TV shows the search came back weird so I wanted to have all my ducks in a row.

By I can see your point. Thanks again. Consider my head wrapped ;)

There is literally dozens and dozens of "weird" shows I can think of just off the top of my mind.

The rule is there to prevent CHAOS. Mythbusters being one of the worst, as well as Lost and Archer ect. Just go to our series request subforum and look at the Series specific Information page, those are just a few of them.

Its something to consider that there is NO SUCH thing as an exception. An exception means a loophole, which means bitching about "Well well well XXXXXX gets it why don't I"

We have a FEW exceptions that are in place until the New site sails, then they will be gone.
I'm semi-retired atm, but I appear occasionally
