I always hear such horrid rumors about how anal and evil the staff at this site are, but honestly I haven't noticed - there's a system and it gets adhered to, and that's fair enough, honestly.
We're at our worst when doing the job right and following the rules. :) There are a lot of people out there who are very selfish and could give any segment of a damn when they don't get exactly what they want. I'm happy when the rest of our community can see past the nonsense.

I came here because TVDB names seasons by the year.
So all of my shows that were after that change, and named by season.....just.....got....friggin....DELETED.
They were named season 6 instead of season 2014, so they must be nonsense files, to my renamer.
But it appears here the site owners just want to be different.
Because standardization sucks?

So you knowingly configured a third party application to delete unknown files and are putting that on us?

Pretty much, I obviously came here to listen to jackasses blaming the rest of the world for the problems they created.
God knows I get enough of it.

J River uses the TVDB for meta data and I often search the database for the older BBC series info.

For me, a series is not complete without a bit of artwork ....

I was delighted to find some entries for the Goon Show (BBC radio) and would now like to complete it.

some new series still not on the list yet... and some of it doesn't have any photos, actor' photos, and some info suddenly in other language..

In-between asking dumb questions, wanted to give a thanks to the contributors and crew here for providing a great service to quasi-technical obsessives like myself.

Oh, and after reading hikaricore's Rants About Things Involving Stuff, I'd also like to apologize for being one of the slobos flummoxed by the single season view DVD order. They only allow me on the internet when someone else is using the crayons.

Hi o/
I originally came to the site, looking for banners and images I could use for a site on which I made banners.
This was probably in 2008 or even earlier. At first I just too... and lurked, but as time went on, I was able to start contributing :D
