I think the Admin/Mods must be overwhelmed becuase a lot of change requests are not getting dealt with. So might be a while before this is done

re-open top gear ... yet another request

Postby bluemoon4ever » Tue Jan 08, 2019 6:01 am

Please can you re-open Top Gear as the BBC has just aired 4 x 'best of' specials from season 22-25, but we cant add them to the specials season, or add them yourself then lock it again?

But I still cant understand why an "on-going" series is locked?!

Not Going to happen - if you read the last sentence in the rules above in pink/red you will notice it says...

Note: Requests to unlock a series will be denied as all series locks are in place for a good reason. Please indicate which changes you are needing to see made and cite valid sources as mentioned above. Thank you


I made this request nearly a month ago - https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=52834&p=142702&hilit=Top+Gear#p141828 - and nothing has happened yet. So probably not going to happen anytime soon as it is very obvious there are not enough mods as the few there are are overwhelmed with the amount of requests.

what harm can it do to unlock it? Or at the least the MOD can add 4 episodes to the Specials list then Lock it again. Technically they are breaking there own rules as these are Ligit Specials aired on BBC during December/January.

Guess I will create my own series for Kodi to use, think I shall call it Series 100 lol.

Change to the synopsis of part 2....

This week Chris and Matt test two all-season supercars, Chris gets sideways in an Alfa Romeo, Rory goes retro-arcade gaming in a Renault Twingo, and Matt gets to grips with a go-anywhere SUV from Russia.
