Hello,

I was updating season 2 of Daniel Tiger Neighborhood (OTA Numbering) and somehow added episode 6 twice. Please delete one of the occurances.

Thanks

We don't allow duplicate listings. Please transfer any information from ID 357816 to ID 261511 (With moderation's help if in locked areas) when necessary.
ID 357816 will be deleted afterwards.
ID 357816 also contravenes the policy of cartoon stories being listed separately. Please see the 'Multi-segment Episode Splitting' section of the rules.

MistyWing - would you be able to assist/support getting the show into a proper naming/numbering format. Like many animated shows, it's a mess. It could be fixed proper in little time. I'd be happy to do it.

It looks like there is other support here:

It seems no one wants the split episode model.

I can't make a decision on split episodes, I can only follow it. If the rule changes by administration decision later, I will follow the new rule.
As far as I know, DVD Order is set to and designed to allow regrouping of split episodes with the applications that can support how we have used it.

For example:
Part 1 of S01E01 is Daniel's Birthday, set to DVD Season 1 Episode 1.1.
Part 2 of S01E01 is Daniel's Picnic, set to DVD Season 1 Episode 1.2.

This is the entry methodology for episodes that aired in two parts but are released as single on DVD, and not exclusive to cartoons as the examples given show.
As such, it would seem to be up to applications to know how to use the information and regroup the parts of metadata for a single file.

I understand your point, but I think in this case, the episodes aren't split. They're a single episode, with 2 parts, as the first post on that other thread explained.

I understand the DVD season, but in this case, unlike most animated, it's all 1 episode. I have other kids shows which are 2 short unrelated episodes. I get, (but often disagree) with the reasoning on those.

The admin on that thread, lfatone, seems to agree as well.

I would be happy to take the time, today, this week, whenever, to go clean up the episodes to their proper naming and number. (I am aware that Amazon butchers the S/E model used, but they're not the standard for it.)

If you check the https://web.archive.org/web/20190328165 ... /episodes/ (they restructured the site, so the episode list is gone), you'll see, Season 1 only had 40 episodes, not 78 or 80

https://www.pbs.org/show/daniel-tigers- ... /episodes/ which is the official page, also has the episodes listed.

I'll talk to him about it and he or I will probably get back to this a bit later with more details.
I'm not 100% on making the changes right now (or yesterday for that matter) with the word choice of "it should be," it implies a bit of uncertainty still.
Since the older seasons are decided by previous staff and relatively old/established (7 years ago), changes of this order will (implies certainty) mess up or mess with the users down the line, so the decision to do this needs to be absolutely certain.

Thank you Misty - any chance of an update. I recognize the implications, but hopefully the reasoning is clear
