The seasons for Just Add Magic are named "Season 101, Season 201, Season 301". This is breaking indexing for me. Request to change to the standard naming convention of "Season 1, Season 2, Season 3". The reason they are named 101, 201 is because Amazon is naming them like that, but it is still breaking indexing conventions.

What indexer do you use? I prefer that we rely on official ordering whenever possible, so perhaps the indexing program can get an update to work with this. Otherwise we'll think about it.

This needs to be returned to the way it was initially. With Season 1, 2, etc
It makes no sense to have made this change. At one point the show had 8 seasons because someone came in and added this season 101, 201, 202 garbage.
Too bad the official ordering doesn't make sense or is incapable inside of Plex, Emby, etc.

It should be the conventional ordering.

This is really dumb.

Rename 101 to Season 1, combine 201 + 202 into a single Season 2, rename 301 to Season 3.

This show officially only has three seasons:

Whoever split the show into four seasons was the person initially in the wrong and then the person who went and renamed them to the "101" "201" "301" stuff is the person who went full retard.

Send your Anger towards Amazon who are numbering their Seasons like that. Tbh, it´s really Dumb. But it´s not our Fault. Like szsori said, maybe an Update for the Indexing Tool will solve the Problem. You could use an nfo Tool too to solve that Problem. We prefer to use original Order. Regardless if it makes Sense, or not.

I don't know where y'all are getting this idea that 101 doesn't stand for Season 1, 201 Season 2 Part 2, etc.

If you search for "Just Add Magic" it returns the following results:
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=just+add+mag ... b_ss_i_1_4

Just Add Magic - Season 1 (4K UHD)
Just Add Magic - Season 2, Part 1 (4K UHD)
Just Add Magic - Season 2, Part 2 (4K UHD)
Just Add Magic - Season 3 (4K UHD)

What exactly is so difficult to comprehend about that?

Compare to: https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/ ... select_atf

In the header it says "4 seasons" and they are numbered 101, 201, 202, and 301.

I could ask you that too. If you´re selecting one of the Seasons from your Search Results it´s just refering to Season 101, 201, 202 301 etc... If i select Season 1 4k it goes to, what Surprise, Season 101: https://www.amazon.com/Just-Add-Besties ... 160&sr=1-2


Show us the Problems with your Programs otherwise we won´t change anything, and again, if you are having Problems with that Numbering, contact the Support from your Programs. The Opener of this Topic still hasn´t show us what exactly the Problem is.

You could contact Amazon if they can change their Numbering. But i´m pretty sure, they won´t.

The issue is that some autist has decided to literally name the seasons dumb names like "101" instead of the standard "Season 1" just because Amazon's Prime Video system wasn't designed to accommodate multiple part seasons.

The problem isn't with our programs, it's with TheTVDB going full retard on this particular series. We're not going to rename our files from their current sane naming scheme of Just Add Magic S01E01 to Just Add Magic S101E01 just to accommodate some editor at TheTVDB who takes the naming on Amazon's page literally instead of using their brain to deduce that Amazon's system wasn't designed to handle 2-part seasons and this is how Amazon always lists a show in their system when a season has been split into multiple parts.

Are you going to go and split Girl Meets World into six seasons and then change the names of its seasons to 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106 just because that's how Amazon's system handles having three seasons split into two volumes each too?
