Hi all

I'd like permission to work on the Thomas the Tank Engine specials - It's a complete mess.

All episodes come as part of the series, I don't intend on touching those.

There are a selection of special movies, which are as follows:
2005 - Calling All Engines!
2006 - Jack and the Sodor Construction Company
2008 - The Great Discovery
2009 - Hero of the Rails
2010 - Misty Island Rescue
2011 - Day of the Diesels
2012 - Blue Mountain Mystery
2013 - King of the Railway
2014 - Tale of the Brave
2015 - The Adventure Begins
2015 - Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure
2016 - The Great Race
2017 - Journey Beyond Sodor
2018 - Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie

I want to put these in order of release, so they'd look like this:
S00E01 - Calling All Engines!
S00E02 - Jack and the Sodor Construction Company
S00E03 - The Great Discovery
S00E04 - Hero of the Rails
S00E05 - Misty Island Rescue
S00E06 - Day of the Diesels
S00E07 - Blue Mountain Mystery
S00E08 - King of the Railway
S00E09 - Tale of the Brave
S00E10 - The Adventure Begins
S00E11 - Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure
S00E12 - The Great Race
S00E13 - Journey Beyond Sodor
S00E14 - Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie

All with high res artwork and such.

All other "specials" (which are just compilation DVDs of the Series episodes), I'd like to change starting with something like "S00E200", which then leaves 199 spaces free for the actual specials. I guess another question is whether they're valid at all as they are just compilations of the series episodes.

Happy to put the work in (I fixed Pingu years ago) but I didn't want to start changing things if it would mess up something in a major way?

Cheers

Why would you change the Order? I don´t see a Reason to do that, because it will mixup exisiting Mediacenters. Though the Numbering is a Mess...

I guess just because it's a mess with duplicates all over the place.
It means the actual specials (the movies + Jack Pack) aren't in the correct order.

Surely when existing media centres scrape, they'll just update to the correct positioning?

No worries if not... it's just my OCD.
