I posted this response to someone's thread in the general discussions area, saw it was the wrong forum, and have come over here to post it in the correct spot, apologies for the double post.

While attempting to get the information for the Disney Animated Shorts "Specials" season, I kept experiencing an issue where entering the season number then episode returned a blank entry (all that showed on my screen was the episode number), but searching for the episode by air date returned a specific episode that aired on that date.

A quick look at the debugs logs showed that it is downloading its file information from here:

http://thetvdb.com/api/1D62F2F90030C444 ... all/en.zip

Looking into the en.xml file it appears that there are two entries for each file in the specials folder (<Combined_season>0</Combined_season>), a top entry which is blank, and a lower entry which actually has information. When searching by s0eXX, it finds the first, blank, entry and returns the episode number with no information. When searching by Air Date, it skips over the blank entry and grabs the first entry that has that air date recorded.

Is there anything I can do to help fix this error?

One of the duplicates had a different name

s0x2 - I'm no Fool with electricity

Should be Mickey's Surprise Party

A google site search lead me to this URL

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesi ... 6322&lid=7

Which while allowing one to edit it, if you click on the "Specials" parent directory you get

315 Query failed: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1

Side note, I said there were two entries, for each one, I was mistaken, there are at *least* two entries, going through it has shown that some of them have as many as 5 duplicate entries

I've compiled and attached a list of all the erroneous "Specials" entries listing the episode number, id number, and name (if any) of the episode. Edit: I tried to up load the file but it's not allowed, I've posted the contents at the end of this post, so it's going to be a long post :?

All of these appear to be able to be reached by entering their ID into the URL and none of them appear to be locked.

The max episode number is 180, but there's a big gap in the middle of it so there aren't really that many.

The ones at the beginning look like they belong in the Disney Educational Shorts section and are the "I'm No Fool" series

Am I posting all this in the right spot and in the correct maner? What is the procedure for fixing these kinds of issues.

So I was just looking through these again and noticed that they are all now locked and I fear that I unclear on what I was hoping for :lol:

I was hoping that all the episodes in the list would be erased, or at least given a new non-conflicting number or moved to a new series names (or just moved to the Disney Education Shorts where they probably belong) as opposed to just locked and left in place to continue reeking havoc on scrapers :-)
