Hi Stephan,

I'll take a look at this when I'm back to work next week.


The fix for this was just pushed live. You can expect to start seeing the proper data in ~4-6 hours, when the cached items are purged from cache.


Thank you. Looks good!

What's the official/database value type off all external ID's? Looks like it's still possible to enter non-integer values for TVDB ID on the website. I'm working with LordMike's TMDbLib ( I think it's important to use the same/official value types in his TMDBLib.

So my questions is: If all values are defined as String in your API?

I do not do any validation on the external ID inputs, and yes the field is a string.

If you spot some bad data, I would encourage you to either fix it or at least head in and delete it. The data may otherwise, never get fixed.
