Duplicate entries for Achievement Hunters' Minecraft Let's Play

Postby AnBasement » Mon Nov 07, 2016 2:17 pm

Not sure if this is the appropriate sub-forum for this, but from what I've read I think I'm in the right place.

Recently looked over the Achievement Hunter Let's Play entry on TVDB, and noticed that a lot of the Minecraft episodes appear both there and in the separate entry for their Minecraft series. I'm not sure how this should be handled on here, most of the discussions I found elsewhere dated back years. On their official website they list all their Let's Play releases under one "show", seen here. On their YouTube page however, they sort their Let's Plays by game, seen here.

Either way, there's duplicate entries for a bunch of episodes.

Figured I'd make this easier for a mod/admin:
These are the episodes that should be removed from the Achievement Hunter - Let's Play show. All of them have an entry in the separate show entry for the Minecraft Let's Play.
Season 2012
40, 42, 46, 50, 52, 56, 58, 60, 62, 65, 68, 71, 74, 77, 80, 83, 86, 90, 95, 99, 103, 107, 111, 115, 119, 123, 126, 130, 134, 138, 143
Season 2013
2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 18, 20, 23, 26, 29, 32, 35, 38, 41, 44, 48, 51, 54, 57, 60, 65, 68, 72, 75, 78, 81, 84, 87, 90, 93, 96, 99, 103, 106, 109, 114, 119, 126, 129, 134, 137, 143, 148, 158, 165, 169, 172, 175, 178

My vote is to keep the Let's Play Minecraft Series. It's much more regularly updated than the other Let's Play episodes and deserves to be in a series of it's own! (Plus I put in a huge amount of work to add it all and anbasement did a great job adding the newer episodes).

Any chance of getting this done?

You are totally welcome to switch those to Episode 0 (please don't blank them in case there's still data there to transfer) and I'll sweep through that listing by the end of this week.

I wouldn't mind doing that. To be clear, I'll change the "Aired Episode Number:" to 0 for all these minecraft episodes, and leave all information intact? I see most of them have a DVD season and DVD Episode Number attached to them.

Since I've got you here, there's also a bunch of duplicates for the Things to Do In... series located in the Let's Play series. Should I do the same with them?

Yeah, you have the right idea.
Normally, we wouldn't encourage this, but it seems prudent in the interest of sorting the series.

It's done! Everything with an episode number of 0 is a duplicate episode which can be found in a separate show entry in the DB.

Since I already have you here, the person that added the episodes earlier has named them differently than from what the episodes are named on the AH website and on YouTube. I'm planning on going over and adding more information to the episodes missing it, should I rename them so they reflect the episode names given on the official website? It's mostly minor stuff, like not spelling out the full name of "Grand Theft Auto", using a dash instead of colon, and spelling out "Part #" instead of just (#), as it is now.

Yeah, please match the original titles, as that user should learn to setup youtube-dl to not use reserved system characters. I'd have a sense of humour about that, but watching Windows users crap up the database for the past decade really leaves my wit dry.

EDIT
Actually, we used a game-season notation for Game Grumps, and it seems like AH focuses on a somewhat narrower band of games. Might that help sort the series better?

Well, that works out pretty well for Game Grumps as their episodes are around 10-15 minutes long. AH does 30-60 minute episodes, so the only two games with over 30 episodes are GTA V (205), Destiny (39) and Minecraft (245). Unless you want to group franchises like Gears of War and Call of Duty together, the majority of the game-specific seasons would have 1-5 episodes, with some around 10.

On top of that they pretty much release a new episode every monday-friday, so it'd end up being a lot of seasons. Wish there was a better way to sort them to avoid having hundreds of episodes per season, but I can't think of one.
