Currently the One Piece special Heart of Gold is listed as 35, but it should come before Film Gold which is listed as 34. Also Film Gold Episode Zero should come before Film Gold and is listed as 36. Can they be adjusted so that Film Gold Episode Zero is episode 34, Film Gold is 35, and Heart of Gold is 36 so that they are listed in the correct order?

Oops, sorry, meant to say: Can they be adjusted so that Heart of Gold is episode 34, Film Gold Episode Zero is 35, and Film Gold is 36

Order of episode number in Specials has no importance and messing with it will just cause issues to people that have their libraries set to use the current way. The data that will get updated will swap the identities with respect to the stored files.
If you have information about how the films relate to the TV Seasons, we can set up Aired Before / Aired After. But AFAIK they are side stories and thus don't really have that information either.

I suggest you reorder them manually on your end. I have done this before for myself.

Yeah, the order really only matters in relation to the specials themselves, as Heart of Gold leads directly into Film Gold Episode Zero and Film Gold. The relation to the series is that they come after the Dressrosa arc which I believe is season 17. I understand your point about it mixing stuff up for people though if it were to be changed. It is just unfortunate for people who are not aware and end up watching them out of order which might cause a bit of confusion when Film Gold references things that happened in Heart of Gold

It's not 100% certain yet but movies in the series Specials might get a different sort of association method on the new site. It's not going to be on the release, but it will probably involve the newly added movie category instead if it ends up happening.

I tried looking up where they are in relation to episodes/seasons, but there's no consensus so I can't do anything there either. Sorry.

tl;dr: for now no changes. In the future maybe (and IMO hopefully.)
