Hello

For series 'gag concert' ID 266519, please assist to combine all the episodes in all 3 seasons uploaded into a single season titled 'season 5', as they are all from season 5 but is currently very messily organised into 3 seasons.

Thanks.

Here's what I'm seeing:
Season 1 (155 episodes)
Season 5 (99 episodes)
Season 2018 (53 episodes)
Season 2019 (25 episodes)

So you're saying the first three need to be combined into one season, consisting of 307 episodes?
And then Season 5 would be followed by Season 2019?

I think this series should use either the year season format to split the episodes like Infinite Challenge and Running Man or combine everything in one season since the network does not separate episodes by season and the episode count is continuous through the whole run:

We could always have alternative listings done with V3 anyway

Well, the episode numbering on this show is a mess — Season 1 starts with episode #622 — so this is going to have to wait until V3 is released.

Phew! I did a bit of hunting and found many missing episodes and airdates on an archived version of the network's website. Since the seasons are all messy I'll put them all under season 1 for now and they can be resorted into whatever makes most sense later, hope that works. :) Hopefully I'll be able to find everything, the website archives are a bit broken.

I've finished filling in all the missing episodes and done what I could to fix the listings without the ability to move episodes so it should be all set for V3 if it's still too messy for V2. All that's left is sorting them however you feel would be best. I would personally sort it into years given how many episodes there are and the episode count is continuous from the start.

To help map things out, here's where all the episodes are currently located:
1 - 641: Season 1
642 - 736: Season 5
737 - 930: Season 1
931 - 983: 2018
984 - 1009: 2019

Can't believe you manually added all these episodes! Kudos :D

I agree with you in thinking that year-based seasons are the most logical way to handle a series like this.
With that in mind, I have reorganized all the Gag Concert episodes into 21 year-based seasons, starting with Season 1999 all the way to the pre-existing Season 2019.

Now, all the episodes from Season 2000 onward need to be re-numbered, as the episode numbering is currently continuous and we need each season to start at episode #1.
But the moderators' work here is done, so I am moving this thread to Resolved Requests.

Thanks for taking care of it! :)
I'll start to renumber the episodes accordingly, I'll just leave the episode titles intact since the continuous numbering is how they're named by the show anyway.
