Title Format Problems

The title below is all stand-up show. So the title format should be changed to "TV Special" but I can't, please help.

Being stand-up show does not mean all of them should be listed as TV Special, original release medium matters. These are first released on DVD so they should be Video (Documentary genre is added to make them appear under Self if that's the problem).

If they are first aired on TV, then they should be listed as TV Special (this also applies to OTT platforms from what I see)

@mbmb​ First, they were all broadcast on TV, then DVDs were released to be watched again.

No that's definitely not the case, I know all titles you linked here were first released on DVD, VCD or Blu-ray. These last 3 links were apparently had their Documentary genre removed incorrectly recently and had tvspecial keyword added. I submitted genres again now because that's the instruction of guidelines for these type of titles.

Hi cvnbolat -

As mbmb mentioned above, if the titles were first released on DVD, then they are correctly listed with the title type "Video".  However, if you have online evidence that contradicts this and confirms the titles were first released as a television special, post those details here and our staff can take a look.

Cheers!
