Need help to add end years to TV series

If you read the help section for title corrections contributors are asked to post any requests to add the end year of a TV series here. It's a real pity we can't do this ourselves as this is a pretty big issue covering many titles, which would save time for both us and the data editors.

Anyway, since we are asked to post here I'll get started with some titles in need of correction:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057796/ - should be "1964" instead of "1964– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1309085/ - should be "1966" instead of "1966– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062598/ - should be "1969" instead of "1969– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066668/ - should be "1971–2006" instead of "1971– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0235912/ - should be "1972–1973" instead of "1972– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2118178/ - should be "1977" instead of "1977– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0310487/ - should be "1979" instead of "1979– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0180353/ - should be "1979" instead of "1979– "

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096717/ - should be "1989–1991" instead of "1989– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4083072/ - should be "1990" instead of "1990– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098796/ - should be "1990–1991" instead of "1990"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0131186/ - should be "1990–1991" instead of "1990– "

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4083024/ - should be "1992" instead of "1992– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101185/ - should be "1993" instead of "1993– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108947/ - should be "1994–2008" instead of "1994–1996"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115099/ - should be "1996–1999" instead of "1996– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185112/ - should be "1999–2001" instead of "1999– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0310425/ - should be "2002" instead of "2002– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0310451/ - should be "2002" instead of "2002– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388634/ - should be "2003" instead of "2003– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0441579/ - should be "2004–2005" instead of "2004"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0995012/ - should be "2007–2008" instead of "2007– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1257544/ - should be "2008–2009" instead of "2008– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3456290/ - should be "2014–2015" instead of "2014"

Many thanks for your help!

I can see you have started to update the titles I've listed, many thanks!

I just noticed one mistake in my list, and I can no longer edit that post: the 3rd series in the list should be http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062598/ - year should be "1969" instead of "1969– ".

Edit: Removed the additional titles I added yesterday, will re-add them when all titles in my first post are updated. Thanks.

Thank you, I can see it's now all sorted, except:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0995012/ - should be "2007–2008" instead of "2007–2009"

Also, the mini-series that were broadcast just before and after new year still just contain the start year - maybe it's not possible to set a year range for mini series? The titles again:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0224472/ - should be "1988–1989" instead of "1988"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098796/ - should be "1990–1991" instead of "1990"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0441579/ - should be "2004–2005" instead of "2004"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3456290/ - should be "2014–2015" instead of "2014"

Any progress on the titles above, posted 2 weeks ago? And what about the mini series that were broadcast over 2 years (still just 1 season), is it possible to give them both a start and end year?

Many thanks! So, it certainly seems it's not possible to have a year range for mini-series? Another few titles listed below.

Here's another few titles that need to be updated, if you can please help me:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2389475/ - should be "1978" instead of "1978– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367358/ - should be "2003–2006" instead of "2003– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0443714/ - should be "2005" instead of "2005– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0960554/ - should be "2007–2009" instead of "2007– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2184010/ - should be "2008" instead of "2008– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1509717/ - should be "2010" instead of "2010– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2301604/ - should be "2011–2012" instead of "2011"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2626138/ - should be "2013" instead of "2013– "

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0907702/ - should be "2005–2013" instead of "2005– " (this is kind of a special one, as it's listed as a TV series, but it really is a straight to video series, which means the years may seem confusing, however the original release years are 2005–2013)

The list is virtually endless - to give you a further hint, every title listed in the movie connections @ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4219938/trivia?tab=mc is a one season series (I wouldn't call them mini-series as each has 24 episodes), broadcast from 1960 until present day - just about all of them are incorrectly listed as ongoing.

Thanks, these TV Series listings have now been updated with the applicable end-year.

To clarify, the titles listed on the 'Connections' for "Piratskattens hemlighet" all need end-years listed, correct?  Do these titles end with the same year that they premiered?

I've got another few for you:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4631518/ - should be "1972" instead of "1972– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0144617/ - should be "1983" instead of "1983– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0165063/ - should be "1994–1995" instead of "1994– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4659504/ - should be "1996" instead of "1996– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0782510/ - should be "2006" instead of "2006– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0995012/ - should be "2007–2008" instead of "2007–2009"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3266582/ - should be "2013" instead of "2013– "

I recently added http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4631518/ and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4659504/ to the database, but in the "Adding a New Title" form, you still can't make a TV series last for just one year. Even if you don't tick the "on-going" box, it's listed as ongoing, and if you add the same end year as start year, you get the error message "The end year must be greater than the start year. If the show only ran for one year there is no need to enter an end year value." - which as proven isn't true.

Anyone?

Also,
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364792/ should be "2003" instead of "2003– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089527/ should be "1985" instead of "1985– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266124/ should be "2000" instead of "2000– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0131681/ should be "1997" instead of "1997– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0197147/ should be "1999–2001" instead of "1999– "

Thanks in advance.

Edit: The mini-series http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473596/ was aired in 1985-86 (first episode in 1985, the rest in 1986) and so should have a year range 1985–1986 instead of just 1985, but it seems it's not possible to have a year range for mini series?

And yet again: Please let us users be able to update the year range ourselves.

Please see above for another six or seven titles to be corrected. I find new ones virtually every day, but only report the ones I really care about - when will we be be able to fix this ourselves?

Here's another three, in addition to the ones above:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103480/ should be "1995–1996" instead of "1995– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0220194/ should be "1989" instead of "1989– "
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0289029/ should be "1977–1978" instead of "1977– "

Is no one from staff checking this topic anymore? In addition to the titles posted in the previous 4 comments, the year range of http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4659504/ needs to be changed to 1996–1998 as the second and final season have been added (I wasn't aware of that season before).

Thank you.

Edit: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4659504/ was just fixed, maybe automatically because of the new season added? Still, there's the other 10 or so titles above to be fixed.
