Neighbours - season split points need changing

Postby samf88 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:21 am

Hi there. Currently trying to fix various things on the Neighbours page (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/neighbours). Up until last year the show would have a short break beginning in December and a new 'season' would begin in January. Now the show runs all year round with no break, but currently we have 2019 episodes listed as running on from the 2018 episodes listed in season 34. This will get messy in the long run so I was hoping we could agree on a sensible way of splitting this show.

The most logical way would be keeping a year's worth of episodes in one season - so that season 34 ends with E256 (episode 8006) on 31st December 2018 and season 35 begins on 1st January 2019 with episode 8007.

Would it be possible for a moderator to make these changes to the episodes currently listed as S34E257-E265?

Many thanks

I agree; been doing it as a pet project for a while now - but I'm in the US, and wasn't entirely sure on the split. Just kept going based off the online streaming site for the channel itself. I think the split should start at 8007 for the 1/1/2019 episode moving in to the new season. :)

It does seem the most logical point to split it - and I think the other long running soaps do it like this too. The only other way I can think of would be to split it before the first new 6 episode block of the year, but that seems a bit pointless in the long run.

Just noticed someone has now created season 35 and added episodes from today onwards as S35E001+ - so those will also need to be amended now too.

Yeah, I noticed that yesterday and what made me come here to see if someone had posted. I thought it was you, since you posted. Heh. They didn't split it correctly either, they started on 01/14/2019 instead of E8006 on 12/31/2018 or E8007 on 01/01/2019. :( I'm just reliving my childhood being overseas by watching this show now - in the end, I don't care what they're named or how they're sorted - but we should do it right if we're going to do it. Right?

I agree. It needs to be accurate. There are sooo many episodes missing for this show and I'd love to add them but there's not a chance I'm adding them one-by-one, copying and pasting each detail manually from my existing data.

Admins:

Just realised that maybe we haven't given you enough info to make this as easy as possible.

Starting with S34E257 (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/neighbou ... es/6969326) please rename/move the following:

S34E257 = S35E001
S34E258 = S35E002
S34E259 = S35E003
S34E260 = S35E004
S34E261 = S35E005
S34E262 = S35E006
S34E263 = S35E007
S34E264 = S35E008
S34E265 = S35E009

S35, which you'll probably have to rename first, the episodes listed should be renamed as follows:

S35E001 = S35E010
S35E002 = S35E011
S35E003 = S35E012
S35E004 = S35E013
S35E005 = S35E014
S35E006 = S35E015
S35E007 = S35E016
S35E008 = S35E017
S35E009 = S35E018
S35E010 = S35E019
S35E011 = S35E020
S35E012 = S35E021
S35E013 = S35E022
S35E014 = S35E023
S35E015 = S35E024

All of the translation data and Episode titling is accurate. Just need the episodes currently listed is S35 shifted 9, and then the 9 episodes incorrectly listed in S34's end to be moved to S35 and renamed.

Please and thank you for everything that you guys do!

Any news on this being fixed? The longer it goes on the more needs to be changed.

I'm wondering if bumping this just pushes it further down the queue, but then I've had two other un-bumped threads going which also haven't been looked at in a similar timeframe, so it can't be that. Perhaps it's a shortage of volunteers at TheTVDB? If they could allocate trusted admins per show this would certainly reduce the strain on staff members - then people could just PM changes like this to each show's admin.
