Numbering for the specials season starts at 13 for some reason, which should obviously be 1.

Is there a particular reason why we can fix this for every season except the specials?

(In case you're wondering, episode 12 never aired on TV which is why it's in the specials.)

I couldn´t find anything about it, but i guess someone´s added "Mini Episodes" or something like that (which could be possible for Animes, but they don´t get listed if they weren´t aired on TV) and a Mod deleted them. The Reason why we don´t renumber (and regular Users don´t have the Possibility to) is that it would cause Complications when Mediasystems/Users scraps their Data and the Numbers of the Episodes get changed Months later. That is why we keep this Numbering and don´t change them after a certain Time.

The option to renumber is there for regular seasons though, which is arguably even more harmful.

Yeah you´re right but it´s more unlogical to change a Order like S1E1, S1E2, S1E3 to S1E4, S1E5, S1E6 then S0E1 to S0E5 or otherwise. Though we have seen that in the Past too unfortunately.
