In Progress

Endeavour on Masterpiece

Endeavour on Masterpiece (2012– )

I don't see a good reason for this series to have a separate listing for its American release. The original series is Endeavour.

If you agree, it would be easier if IMDb would remove the series and its episodes instead of a contributor having to merge them one by one. No user ratings or reviews are listed yet, and there is little other data.

There was a similar report here for Sanditon: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/same-show-has-two-pages/62646db45336df7593637c98

Michelle merged it on that thread but it looks like the creator of the title page didn't care and they created it again: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21085910/

And the issue seems wider:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21204888/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14657234/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt20223718/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt19359648/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt19359650/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt19359654/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7584116/ (this seems like a hijack of an irrelevant in-development title page)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt19892784/ (a series that started in 2015 and ended in 2019 is not "in-development")
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21221870/

All of the above pages are duplicates and have their correct original pages listed already. Surely it seems like it's the work of the same person. And it also looks like it could be the same person who kept creating duplicate The Orville page recently (which is still a problem: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21303608/ )

Hi @mbmb​ -

Thanks for reporting, I have now cleaned up these duplicate series title listings and the changes should be live on the site shortly.

Hi @mbmb -

This seamed to be a problem with the user uploading the duplicate titles, extra steps have been taken with the user and a ticket was made to clean up all the wrong submissions just so you are aware of it might take some time to do so.

Cheers!

@mbmb​ Hi!

Thanks for pointing this out I have escalated the matter. I accepted the deletion requests, thanks for that. And we are aware the cleanup has not been done, the request is still pending but will be done.

Cheers!

@Bethanny​ There are definitely some oddities here. For example, this:

Magpie Murders On Masterpiece (TV Series 2022– )

A normal user can't add a title with a capitalized "On" like this, submission form would auto-correct it to "on", I think only a staff member can bypass these auto-corrections and I think this suggests that this title (and possibly others) was added by an IMDb editor. I also noticed these pages are instantly ended up on this IMDb-Editors list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls561967342/

which would be another thing to suggest these might be added by a staffer.

Is that the reason "steps" did not work here?

@mbmb​ No this was not added by staff members, again the issue was escalated to stop it from happening.

Thanks!

@Bethanny​ This was just reappeared after deleted with a submission you approved above: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt23017678/

Posting it so you can check your "steps"

Made a submission to delete it while it still had title delete option active: https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/221025-184234-402000/

@mbmb​ Hey!

Thank you so much. I will probably be working soon personally on this cleanup and hoping to stop the user for good from adding them any more.

Cheers!

@Michelle​ The problem with merging, rather than deleting, is that all the incorrect titles end up listed as Alternate Titles:

(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2701582/releaseinfo)

Also - I wouldn't know anything about how Masterpiece works, but should they really be listed as a production company?
