Locked ongoing series?

Postby bluemoon4ever » Sun Oct 14, 2018 5:17 am

Why are some ongoing series seasons locked?

Top Gear (specials)
Red Dwarf (specials)

to name but two.

When people continue to mess around with the data. Most of the time either adding special that are not allowed or change episode order different from the original broadcast.

What is it you want to add?

well its just for reference. I have some more top gear specials, and some red dwarf stuff. However i am at a loss as to what is actually as 'special'. Does it have to have appeared on TV or are DVD specials allowed as both the above mentioned series have both.

if that is the case then why are the two above mentioned series full of DVD only stuff, or is that the reason that they are locked?

Cant you just remove the DVD stuff and unlock the series?

- Unaired Pilots are allowed
- how do you know the specials never aired? They have air a date. I am not going to simply remove them
- BBC America only content is still official content that aired and allowed as specials

You didn't specify what you want to add. List Episodes, air dates and sources and we will add it for you. And next time please link directly to the series.

And for Red Dwarf:

What new content is it you want to add?

any old fool can enter an 'air date' when they create a special episode
oh just forget it, you guys just make it up as you go along
