INTRODUCING: Contribution for Series End Years

INTRODUCING: Contribution for Series End Years

 

Hey all,

 

We've launched the capability to submit end years to episodic series pages through the contribution form. 

 

In the past, this was only possible by reaching out to the IMDb support team with the info - this should now be a lot easier and quicker!

 

To submit the end year, head over to the Parent series page and click Edit page found at the bottom - the option for end years is under the Basic data section, from here just add in the 4 digit year (e.g. "2020") and submit.

There are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If you're looking to correct an end year, you'll still need to do this via our contact form - the series end year option won't be in contribution form if there's already an end year. More information on correcting it here

  • A series end year should only be submitted if the series has been confirmed as cancelled or finished.

  • Uncertainty of renewal isn't sufficient to add an end year unless the final episode was at least 3+ years ago.

  • Where possible, you should use the Provide an explanation field to provide supporting evidence with your request.

Thanks as always for all your feedback – please feel free to respond to this thread. 

 

Take care,

 

Joel

Joel - will you ever open the Provide Explanation box _for_ the contributor? Or at least make it open when we click the checkbox, instead of when we click the Check these Updates button?

Unfortunately, I've not got the answer for this - but it's a good question and I've forwarded it onto the required team as feedback.

This is now implemented. Maybe the fastest implemented feature suggestion?

Thanks a bunch for this! I'm happy to see that this is now a feature in the regular update forms. It must save you quite a bit of mails too. :)

Outdated info in submission form (appears under "Title Correction" form)

Thank you very much!

Perhaps this is the reason why my last petition through help desk wasn't processed. I have just submitted it through the new system, it is much easier.

I just learnt about this today. This will make things a lot easier and less troublesome.

I have been around long enough to remember when this actually did exist before within the contribution form!

I believe it was called "TV series range" back then.
