The Movie Database Support

Since since pretty dead I'd like to import several tv shows from there that are missing in here. Adding each episode one by one would be very time consuming. Each show has more than 100 episodes and there are a lot of shows missing. Is there an automatic why to add them?

I think unfortunately not and it's even better not to do this, because maybe to avoid duplicates or wrong air dates or copyright issues

The only tool I know exists, but I've never used it, is this:
If I understood correctly, it only imports IMDB data.
It seems to me that the programmer is a user or moderator here in TMDb.

I'm sure we had a discussion about this not to use it because of IMDB is very often not a good source

I'm not talking about importing from IMDB. I'm talking about importing from TheTVDB. Also, it would be helpful to bulk upload several episodes at once

Maybe but there's no possibility for now

Nothing new.

I can't answer your question without the name of the programm you are talking about.

Feel free to add the missing episodes.

But, please, don't just copy directly the data from TVDB. Double check the data with an official source.

Except a missing space char in front of "2021" (I have added it), this seems correct.

Is there a way that after something is added the picture can stay. I noticed after I added the episode the DOOL picture disappears

Looking at the changes history, no pictures have disappeared.

They didn't disappear, they were never there.


I'm friends with Mandi79. She wanted me to tell you after editing an episode for Days of our Lives her account was suspended. Although the support team they were suspending the account bc they believe it was an alternate account, which it's not. She said you were nice. If I had an questions to reach out to you. I noticed since Mandi79 spoke to you DOOL has updated. How can I do this for programs without being suspended. I say that bc I'm worried our usernames are similar that my account can possibly be suspended. Should I delete my account
