Data Integrity Issue

Contact IMDB is an interresting choice of words when it just leads me here for something that should be simple feedback. Seems like crappy site design, and this input box is absurd as well since it doesn't scroll with the text you type so you can't see shit. Anyway, Prohibition Grille, an episode of Kitchen Nightmares, should be labeled Season 5 Episode 14, but is listed as Season 6 Episode 14. This seems like an odd place to put this given the community may or may not have any vested interest in the integrity of the site (well at least the data since apparently they outsourced their design and fuctionality plan to a third world country). I don't even care to know how to fix this. Not my job, and I don't have time for it. Just wanted to know if there was way of informing someone whose job it is, but I don't even care about that. If someone else feels strongly that this site should at least have a sense of data integrity, feel free to submit this to someone who cares and gets a paycheck to fix such things.

Why not just the edit yourself? Those who benefit from the site should help maintain it, and it is a user-contributed site.

At the bottom of the title page you should see a big IMDb-gold button that says Edit Page.
When you get the Update page, you'll find this at the bottom:

Select Correct for the appropriate category, click Continue.
When you change the season number from 6 to 5, it will complain:

Since you know something about this show, you might know what to do about this.
You should NOT expect IMDb staff to know the show and do the research. They are employed to VERIFY the changes we suggest, and to make sure they're properly implemented.
So it would also be wise to find an online source(s) that can corroborate your correction, and include it/them in the box you get when you tick the checkbox for Provide an explanation...
