So I've been trying to clean up and update the listing for If the Emperor had a text-to-speech device. But the previous guy who made it seems to have put almost everything in 1 season whilst I'd like to update it to follow the structure on the fanwiki seen here: https://if-the-emperor-had-a-texttospee ... isode_List. If somebody could help me by deleting everything in season 1 after episode 10 then I would be fine to just update the rest myself.

Also I'm kind of new to this I'm mostly just updating series that I follow but haven't gotten a listing yet or haven't updated in a while. And for the moment I haven't found the delete episode button yet. Any help is appreciated.

I no longer need help as they finally allowed the deletion of individual episodes and moving them to other season. Which is strange as you can't change meta order anymore and the description of the episodes.

I have made an entire restructuring of the named series but for some reason all my changes have been rewinded, including adding new episodes and removing old ones to update them with a short description which was lacking in the initial listing. Anybody know what is happening?

Hi, Liam, and welcome to the forums!

I moved this topic from the Members Helping Members to the Series Change Requests sub-forum, because deleting episodes is an ability reserved for moderators and admins only, and therefore regular users cannot help you with that.

On Wednesday, July 31, a new version of TheTVDB (V3) was launched. In that version, regular users were temporarily capable of deleting episodes due to a bug which was quickly fixed.
However, several days later, it was decided to roll back the site to the previous version (V2), due to numerous critical issues which plagued it. V2 is the version you're currently seeing. Unfortunately, all changes made to the site while V3 was live were regrettably not retained. I am sorry for this and I know it is a bummer to have to do all the work again; I had made quite a few changes and additions myself, and had to repeat it all once the site was rolled back.

Please let us know how we can help you restructure this series.
FYI, if there are currently episodes in Season 1 which belong in Season 2, there's no need to delete them, as we can just move them to a different season.

For next time, you should always include a link to the series on TheTVDB in your requests, like so: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/338620.
Also, you should work based on the official YouTube channel (which I'm assuming is this) rather than Wikis which are maintained by fans and are not considered acceptable sources here. I was able to find playlists for Season 1 and Season 2, but not for Season 3.
