Arrow specials deletion
Please delete special 8: Season 5 Comic-Con - First Look
Updated to match TVDB.
It's not a long standing policy. It was possible to change the special number in the previous version of the site.
Sure renumbering specials would break Trakt, but so would reordering the regular seasons, which is possible. And after it's fixed Trakt would be updated to something cleaner.
How are the airs before/after fields factored in trakt?
Also, if you forget to add a special, you're screwed. Regardless of the airs before/after fields and even the numbering, the actual list of specials should be in order by date.
Please read the long comment in the first link. The user lays out the issue well, and the TVDB admin didn't respond, curiously enough.
It's not a policy change. This is a long standing policy of TVDb. It makes sense. If you keep renumbering the specials, it breaks everything, as stated in the linked threads. The order of specials is handled through the airs before/after fields, as stated in the linked threads.
Any update on this?
So do I. It's an infuriating policy change with the new update.
