This is something I want to address, the season numbers. Since we cannot edit season numbers, we have to be careful of what episodes we add to. This anime series, Naruto Shippuden, has become more trouble some to work on unlike the other wiki projects. I'm asking the community and its wiki editors to decide what should we go with: Wikipedia and thetvdb . Foxx told me that Wikipedia wasn't always right. I'm lost on this issue. Right now, I'm trying to help organize the episode screenshots by placing more priority on the episodes first then the characters.

Edit:

I'm not much of a Naruto wiki editor since I dropped this show a long time ago. I should take control of the project because it's one of the biggest franchises in any anime community.

I'm doing a massive shoutout. I'm sorry, if you have time, I would like you to please share your opinion.

@takashichea: To me thetvdb is trustworthy enough. We don't have to be the exact same copy of wikipedia.

I'll take your vote for TVDB.

@takashichea: Let me just bring up HxH for comparison. I was doing season numbers for Hunter x Hunter 2011 from thetvdb. There are only two seasons for that series in TVDB, and wikipedia have five seasons listed. I believe wikipedia is considering seasons as arcs, and those are not the same.

Edit: as I said before, TVDB even have season banners, which means they are not doing things half-heartedly.

Foxx was right that Wikipedia is not always correct. I wanted to know why they did that. On their talk page, nothing was mentioned. In the Wikia communities, you have talk pages for wiki pages. I looked ANN's profile for Hunter x Hunter 2011. Crunchyroll isn't much of help here since they screwed up the season numbers.

What Daniel told me that we always went with official publishers. I'm assuming he meant we go with how the episodes are divided into seasons based on DVDs. Daniel hasn't responded to me regarding Naruto. The problem is that most of us can't read Japanese. I could go to Amazon.co.jp and use Google Chrome, but those DVD pages don't have an extensive episode list. Plus, waiting for the Viz Media dubbed DVDs takes too long.

We just go to pick a source and stick with it for consistency sake. I don't want to keep deleting and re adding episodes over and over. It's too counter productive.

@bigz007:

It has been a week, so we're going with TV Database for Naruto. Since you're an expert on the show, I let you add the episodes. I'm just going to delete the Wikipedia ones for the Itachi episodes and move Shawnee's images.

Just want to inform you, we're following TV Database.

@Toxin45:

I'm not sure if you understood the OP here. What I asked was what source do we go with numbering the Naruto Shippuden episodes. Since Bigz007 was the only one who replied, we going with TV Database. Use that when you add the episodes.

Also, Toxin45, when you add characters, make sure you add the ones that actually appeared. Don't guess. I receive some complaints from your BlazBlue partner and Egan.

@bigz007:

Sorry about this, TV Database did something weird. The newer episodes that I added to season 14 according to TV Database is now season 15. I wish we can change seasons and episode numbers because this makes our job harder. I haven't really work on this project since the other wiki projects take up higher priority.

I wish I can help you but this wiki project and its episodes are a bit annoying to work on. I know you want to attach images. For the time being, forget about attaching episode screenshots to this anime. You don't have active team members to help you. I'm sorry about that. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

@takashichea: I am willing to help out on Naruto franchise but I know that I will have to correct my work because of that whole season number confusion, and it's really troublesome to deal with. Is it possible to find someone who will make those season numbers editable just like volume numbers?

@bigz007:

The only person who can fix the numbering is probably the Engineers of the site. I don't think staff have the power. Tom, Sam, and Murphix never touch the wiki pages.

@takashichea: Do you know if any of them can get in touch with the Engineers?

P.S. while they at it, they could make some more adjustments like auto voice actor attaching from a certain profile page.

I'll PM them a request. I don't know why TV Database did that. I don't know what source to trust anymore. I feel Wikipedia is more stable because TV Database never added a note why they change the listing.
