Hi,

I checked out the Dino the Dinosaur example from the beta that you had a look at and the poster and favorite both appear to work fine to me. Maybe you can screenshot or send us the error? The alternate orders are across every series. We are finding that these flexible season requests are coming up more and more the deeper we dive into them. For example, the way cartoons air in a split or cohesive format, so we will likely be keeping the flexible orders "flexible" for now. I've documented your other suggestions. Thanks for checking out the new site.
It is there now, maybe the delay from the live to the beta is a lot more than the few hours i read in an earlier post. :?: :?:

As for the orders, i dont think they should be removed but hidden when not actually being used for that specific show is all. If they exist then sure, show them! Anyhow, you're welcome :)

thank you for the updates!

error 1: with actors, for example Makoto Furukawa has 3 profiles that give a 404 error, can't add him to a serie/movie: https://beta.thetvdb.com/search?query=Makoto%20Furukawa
I added one profile to see if it would give me a error or if it'd work, but that profile doesn't show on the search, only the 3 that gives the 404 error. Here is the one I added: https://beta.thetvdb.com/people/3360635

error 2: movies disapearing, I added everything for this movie before but it just stopped appearing on results, so I added it again, but not sure if it might be happening for other movies as well https://beta.thetvdb.com/movies/my-punch-drunk-boxer (it was before the new update, I believe, so not sure if it was fixed)

suggestion 1: to have a extra field for aka and/or native names for people, would help to find for those from countries that has different writting.

suggestion 2: to add be able to add the person occupation on their profile and that it'd show in the result (in lowercase and smaller) to help with those that have similar (or same) names but work in different occupation (actors, writers, directors, producers, etc.)

suggestion 3: to also have the year the person was born to be shown in the results, like the year of the movie/serie release.

thanks again :)

When will the new website be online for public use? I hear so much about the new website but don't know when it can be used.

Can a series have a runtime length of more than 120 minutes? 120 minutes is the current max but certain shows excess that threshold but can't reflect that because of 120 minutes being the max runtime allowed.

New website should be sometime in November. We have longer runtime increments in the new site. Up to 420 minutes in half hour chunks.

Will it only go in 30 minute increments? I like have it's in 5 minute increments right now. Sounds good to hear. Look forward to seeing the new website.

We're doing a nightly import that runs from 2 am to 8 am PST, during those times, you will see data discrepancies as production data is pushed into the new site.

I've been trying to add missing cast/crew to movies. The cast member won't appear in the cast list if the actor doesn't already have a Person page. I tried using Add Person first, but the page don't save and searching again does not list them.
ex. Adding actor Amy Groening (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4082592) to the cast in My One & Only (https://beta.thetvdb.com/movies/my-one-only, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10651668) will not work.
