It's been locked for a month now. As I said it's been long enough. If you're still not going to unlock it can you add all the episodes since?

This was locked due to title card violations and episodes from other web series were being added to it. I've unlocked it, but we will need to relock if the problem persists.

The series is unlocked but each season is still locked.

I've noticed multiple web series being locked due to title cards. Would you be open to reconsidering that rule specifically for web series? For YouTube series at least I would argue that the thumbnail is the best fit for the episode image. Sure it sometimes has the title of video on it, but they almost always are unique.

I've unlocked the seasons and episode. I think it unlikely that we will make an exception. It is a long standing rule, but we will discuss.
