Discuss The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Item: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Language: en

Type of Problem: Design_issue

Extra Details: Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems an earlier entry for this movie was merged with a newer duplicate, erasing the earlier URL + unique ID that was listed first. Does this not break some API requests relying on older caches of the database?

Could there be some sort of rule or policy in place to ensure newer duplicates are deleted rather than older ones to prevent orphaned URLs + IDs? It's not an critical issue but it might be a good guideline nonetheless.

Our rule is to always keep the older ID. For this title, however, it was initially conceived as a television series and I believe the original page was in the television section, if I remember correctly. Then the creators changed that, so it would make sense to create page for it in the film section and get rid of the tv page.

Ah yes I forgot about the switch in format. Explains a lot. Thanks for the reply!

You're welcome. Closing topic. :smile_cat:
