noting that it is back, but ...
it now defaults to year rather than season, it used to
series goes nowhere, I've not looked at a lot of options, there might be reason

can it go to the season of the episode we are editing ? it usually defaults to the most recent season
the available data for season 7 is not likely to be useful when editing a season 1 entry (that hasn't been done properly)

I did not post a screen shot of the problem
It is implied in the knowing of the system
When you get to the part, a person who knew would be able to see the problem
You are unable to help, anyway, so why ...

And yet you persist.
You don’t understand the problem.
You are unable to assist with the problem.
You cannot fix the problem.

The 3 employees did not understand what you meant because you failed to explain it
I have done what you failed to do.
Help the staff to help you.
Please stop this or I shall contact Sprinklr.
You should know who they are. If you don't. Find out.
Cheers.

O, come on, Dream_Weaver. Don't threaten to contact Sprinklr, even if you're bluffing. The creator of this thread has not really one anything wrong. No need to be dramatic.

Or right.
He has belittled you and I and anybody that is not an IMDb employee. He has not been thankful nor thanked anyone for their diligence. But I will comply with your wishes as a senior here and let his next snide comment slide.

the usual season, year, series update box
will display the series and year correctly but the series will default back to the season tab, which isn't helpful when there is details I want from the series for a new pilot on a series not yet updated

Hi marhleet -

Can you confirm if this issue is still occurring?  If so, in order for our staff to take a look, can you clarify the exact update you are trying to make (e.g. adding cast member to a series, adding a new series title through our title form, etc.).

Also, if you are able to take screen grabs of the issue, please post them here as well.

That would be an update to an episode of a series so that there is an option for a season a year and a series.
I see this is still hard after fifteen years, did you try it first ?

Hi marhleet,

Apologies but I'm still not entirely sure what your issue is here, are you trying to add a new episode to an existing series page or trying to amend an existing episode to include a season number and year? Can you provide a screenshot and we can take a look?

Regards,
Will

Am I to understand correctly that people who use the words "who", "what", "where", "when", "why", "how" or "if" here do not comprehend this situation?

I ran into a topic On Get Sat on a title where the cast and crew were verified complete and thus were not alterable. (Locked)

"Verified" cast and crew were a problem for ages and still are. Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday allegedly had a crew and cast verified as complete, but upon checking the end credits I discovered there were dozens to be added. Which I did, so such "completions" are reversible.

You were asked a direct question.

You gave an unhelpful answer just as you are doing here.
There were no replies back.
They gave up on you.
I looks as though this will happen again.
If you cant give them what they ask for.
Then they give up trying to help.

On account of the condescension found in reply no. 19,920,654, it could be said that I'm venting a bit. I agree that the "box" (the drop-down HTML iframe) in question omits a lot of cast members, but I'm not really all that concerned about complaining about that at this point. The IMDb submission interface is hardly a stranger to such shortcomings.

Agreed, it does leave out a LOT
He could simply go to each season manually to find what he needed.

Note to Imdb
This seemed to work on a series level at first but I back paged for screenshots to prove it was working. When i was back at the start the series level did not work. It appears to work initially. I think if you make a mistake and back up to start over is where this problem pops up.

Hi all,

Yes you are correct, the issue is still open as it was raised previously, however I'm afraid that there are no updates as of yet.
