to specials, please?

Also, Plan to Eradicate Christmas should be S00E13 https://www.thetvdb.com/series/dragon-b ... es/6503563 instead of 695
So an interesting tidbit about renumbering specials. When I was requesting an add-in for a special for Gantz I was told by DarkLightIndigo that "Specials are not renumbered under normal circumstances, as that has the potential to screw up thousands of collections that we then have to answer for altering." I was told this august 25 2017. They might change that policy with V3 rollout, but I am not entirely convinced

That being said I don't disagree with you, in fact, it is the opposite, but this is more of a heads up

honestly the specials section in DBZA needs a revamp. i don't understand the thinking in how they are numbered... why are some movies numbered with single or double digits, but plan to eradicate christmas is 695? why are the episode breakdowns lower 600s but the two movie breakdowns are higher 600s, which a couple specials in between? i mean i might understand if all the specials were listed in chronological order, but this is nuts?

i can see where they are comping from with renumbering episodes all over the place, but that means they should take advantage of DVD ordering or just have different rules for web series that has a lot of random shows (breakdowns, list specials, etc) like DBZA. movies get certain numbers, kais get others, etc etc.

i donno just my late night two cents.

...but at the very least kai 2.9 anbd 3.5 should be *added* to the show, right? somewhere? so it shows up in our libraries?

It´s a Mess for true. We have some Series which needs a Cleanup.We will have a closer Look at these Kind of Shows with the new Website and their Bulktools.

If a Episode is missing tell me exactly what (with Sources of Corse) and a Mod will add it.

To Add (according to current numbering convention, youtube links to each episode showing date of release):
Dragon Ball Z Abridged Kai ep 2.9 - released Apr 1st 2019 - https://youtu.be/9HMsyNpw400 - this should be in Specials Episode 103
Dragon Ball Z Abridged Kai ep 3.5 - released Jul 24th 2019 - https://youtu.be/u969fbZVSvE - This should be in Specials Episode 105

To Change:
Dragon Ball Z Abridged Kai ep 3 is on there, but it should be Specials Episode 104. the release date is correct. Don't know why Kai 2.9 was skipped, kind of weird.

finally, all three have posters that should be added. and seriously, thanks for the work you guys do even if its confusing at times its wonderful.
