I have noticed that the episode ordering for Spongebob from Season 8ish onward gets really weird. The "aired order" for season 8 is just episodes from Season 7. Then Season 9 is the real Season 8. Season 10 is some season 8, most all of the REAL season 9 and parts of the real season 10. This causes issues since the show's episodes are not in that order at all in DVD/iTunes releases. I'm trying to use TVDB for my Plex ordering of the show, and I find it frustrating that the ordering is off. I'd be glad to take the time and correctly order everything, but the series is locked. Also at the moment I am using the "DVD order" on Plex since the aired order is off.

RECAP: Spongebob has a messed up order. I'd be willing to fix it, but it is currently locked. I would be fixing the "DVD Order" using the Season 8/9 DVD releases and any iTunes releases. I would also use the Wikipedia pages to help me order the DVD order since that puts them in their "production order" which is synonymous with the "DVD Order".

Bumping this because nothing has been done still.
Would be really nice to have the completed and proper DVD/production order in the database considering that's what pretty much anyone checking for episodes of SpongeBob would be using (ie. the episode numbers used on nick.com, the US Copyright database (ex), and all of the places that have an episode list identical to this one here: https://www.sbmania.net/episodes.php which matches the DVD releases as well)

I'm actually a bit curious what tvmaze/epguides even bases their info on since it's the only place I've ever seen with that guide for SpongeBob

It will not be unlocked so that any one can come in and do what they please. If you want locked seasons changed, you need to show exactly how they should be changed and proof as to why. I'm all in favor of getting this cleaned up as well, but unlocking old seasons only increases the chance they will get screwed up more.

I agree, it shouldn't be unlocked for any random person lol
I provided various examples in my post. Should I get any more info to help with the process? :D

Unlock for abney317. He's offered to fix this mess, and it needs it badly.

Came here with the same media server problems and wanted to tack on a +1.

Also, after looking at episode counts on tvguide there seem to be missing segments starting all the way back at Season 2. So the entire page probably needs a once-over.

Been a while since I've checked in here. Would still really like to help out if needed to get the guide for this series corrected. :)

Is there gonna be able to be any push to get these ordered correctly? Just added season 1 and season 2 off my DVDs I got and a third of the season 2 episodes are listed under season 3, who even got their hands on the seasons before it was locked? Clearly didn't know what they were doing.

Another vote - please let him fix it. Episodes for last 2 seasons are out of wack pretty bad.

What's even worse - if we can it make match broken DB and it ever gets fixed, we get to change our end again...
