Please lock season 3 of Victoria

Where rejected requests go to die.
Seriously though, we're open to discussion; but read the stickied thread first to avoid a premature termination of the conversation.

Can anyone tell us why all request for this show has been rejected? It is nonsense. The show is already on air and you refuse again and again to add the dates.

There are a lot of applications that use this data to provide monitoring of the programs and this lack of information makes the applications useless, in fact I am convinced that many users do not know that the show already has several episodes released.

Because for some absurd reason, according to the Mods it's hasn't "originally Aired" until it has aired on the channel which produces it. Even though in reality the original air date, would be anytime an episode has aired for the first time anywhere.

See ITV won't be airing season 3 until sometime later this year and because of that the PBS air dates apparently don't exist/count.

Your best bet is to transition to another tracking service. Both TMDB and TVMaze are recording the season 3 airdates.

PBS isn’t the main broadcaster, ITV is. It will be updated once the UK planning is known. Just read above please, it won’t change.

As an American user of Trakt.tv (which uses your database), I just had to register to add to the 'complaints' here. Seeing I'm using Trakt.tv to know when to watch what, it's incredibly annoying that the already released episodes kept popping up and later again vanished. They often popped up a day after it was broadcasted, so I kept missing them and had to download them..

Instead of sticking to your rules (which I'm not even gonna try to debate about, as you made it clear you're gonna remain stubborn about them), think of alternative solutions... For example adding the option to add 'alternative' broadcast dates, 'first broadcasted in country X on..' or something like these things, so if it airs on a different network, in a different channel, it doesn't become such a stupid childish issue as it has apparently become in this thread.

Yes, your rules might stand for something, but at the same time your database becomes flawed, irrelevant and factually incorrect (aired = aired, no matter where it aired) by declaring the rules Holy. Do you want TVDB to have a long life, with much more users? Or do you want to let it slowly die, by doing stupid stuff like happend here? Your choice..

Trakt also uses TMDB -- have them change to that for import.

Victoria on ITV and PBS is not showing up as active on thetvdb. The airing dates have not been added. I attempted to add them but apparently the moderators have blocked any changes. Can this please be fixed as quickly as possible.
