Where rejected requests go to die.
Seriously though, we're open to discussion; but read the stickied thread first to avoid a premature termination of the conversation.

As has been said repeatedly - a Scripps/Discovery production numbering is not going to dictate specials. When the episode is on their consumption site, it likely will be numbered normally -- and given to all listings services and distribution partners as a normal episode. It airs in the normal time and on the normal day.

After the first of the year with V3 up and running with all bugs being ironed out - the next steps for the site will be to give detailed reports on users contributions with new user-specific reports and rollback capability. Also up is a deep look at how many specials are now being put in with those likely being tightened way up as well. Way too many specials have been put in the past 2 years and that is likely going to be looked at. Specials have been turning into regular submissions and a discussion internally about tightening that back up will be had. They should be rare and one-off situations. Episodes that air in the middle of the season are no more 'special' than a sit-com having a holiday-themed episode in the middle of the season.
