"Famous in Love" missing credits and prod codes

Postby helmboy » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:11 am

Why was this locked so fast that there are missing directors and writers from episodes and the Warner prod codes are all missing? Better question why does this site lock eps at all?

Ordinarily, episodes are locked when there's a disagreement between scene listings and the actual airing network, though repeated vandalism is also a reason. I'm also curious why this is locked, though Maretoh has filled out all but E07 and 10, and the production codes.

I think it's obvious: because of users ignoring the broadcast schedule, and changing the airdates to the date the season became available for streaming. :roll:

Same issue we had with 'Beyond' (also Freeform), 'Aquarius' (NBC), and I think at least one series on TBS.

The Production Code fields all look blank to me. Same with the other missing credit fields. And if it's an issue with just the airdate field then why don't you have that field lock once it's set and not force a season lock?

I believe this is an option on v2 of the site, but yeah, this is one of the reasons why v1 is being obsoleted.

Yeah, it was for the airdates.
I've added the production codes.

First off what v2 site?

And the show still has the second director missing from the pilot. Secrets & Pies and Leaving Los Angeles have the writer missing. Also locking the whole season because of issues with the airdate field is overkill.

It's under beta now.

And how about providing the missing informations so we can add them next time?

Is it, though?
Every time I have to revert batches of airdates because somebody said "oh hey, it's on Netflix now, let's use THOSE dates!" I die a little inside.
v2 (per Maretoh's link) should be divorcing those fields, v1 isn't going to be salvaged precisely because of issues like this.

How about not locking the season? Why don't do what Wikipedia editors do and report users that do such airdate reversions more than three times for temp or permanent editing blocks? And the other site is really not useable, I'd call it still in pre-alpha stage. Also no site supports story and teleplay credits when the writers are different like in the Pilot: Rebecca Serle wrote the story but I. Marlene King & Rebecca Serle co-wrote the teleplay.
