Oh my, sorry about the wait! I've been on and off with work, school, etc. and never noticed that there was a comments section down here. T_T

Some of my favorites are Baccano, FLCL, Mushishi, and Aria the Animation/Natural/Origination.

How about yourself?

You seem to have completely missed my point so I'll type it out in bold for you.

I don't give a damn if someone has the wrong number of episodes set for a series.

I also already know that you can't set the episode count higher than the total number of episodes*.

My intention was to make people aware of the fact that episode zero had its own entry rather than being the first episode of the series, so that people could add that entry to their list. MAL does not have, and can not have, any methods of dealing with this.**


What the hell would be the point of contacting a DB admin about this? It would just be a complete waste of my and their time.

And yes, I could have checked the ep. 0 entry watching list to see whether or not each individual user had set that entry to watching. But that really would not have been worth it. Far easier to just send the message out to more people than necessary - after all, there is no harm done in sending it to someone it doesn't apply to (other than the 15 seconds required between each message) and most normal people would acknowledge this and ignore or just delete the message rather than flying into a butthurt rage filled with misunderstanding, hilariously inaccurate assumptions, logical fallacies, excessive use of capital letters and irrelevant points and analogies, and hinted death threats.

*well technically you can, but it's bug abuse.
** again technically this could be done but it would just piss people off if every time they added something to their list a message popped up detailing all the related series with a message along the lines of "are you sure you don't want to add these as well?"

Oh and one last thing - what makes you think I'm in any way a fraud? Or was that just a part of the quote that you couldn't come up with anything to do with?

Hi,

I'm not bitching about anything. Nor am I offended by the number of episodes others have on their list.

It's just that there was a very large amount of people who, when the series began, didn't realise that episode zero had its own entry and was not episode 1 (and thus was not a part of the main series). Thus those messages were sent out to be helpful, and it seems that for several people they did their job. If that doesn't apply to you then by all means ignore it.

In response to what is basically the only truly relevant of your message (which is "OR ARE YOU JUST TRYING TO INFORM PEOPLE. ---answer to this: yes--- IF EPISODE 0 IS A SEPARATE ITEM ON MAL THEN WHY WEREN'T YOU BITCHING ABOUT PEOPLE HAVE TOO MANY EPISODES ON THEIR LISTS AFTER EPISODE 1.") your answer is that I did send round a similar message to a number of people shortly after the first episode aired. But a lot of people don't watch stuff within the first couple of hours after the episode airs, and these are the only ones who I sent the message to. They made up about 1 in every 7 people who were setting an episode count as watched at the time, though, which is a huge proportion. The fact that the series was about to end, and that this would be the last opportunity to help correct people's entries, combined with a discussion I was having at the time, convinced me to send round another batch.
Last time 8 out of 10 people who replied were thanking me for pointing it out to them versus 4 out of 8 this time (one of which I deleted). This relative drop was to be expected and indeed was expected, but that's still a significant number of people that I helped by sending out those messages.

And it isn't as though there would be an easy way to tell who was in which category in advance.

To put your mind to rest I have never done this with any other series in the past as there has never been a need to. There is a good chance that I never will do this with any series in the future either, although if the same situation arose I would probably do it again - pissing off a small minority of people like you is a price well worth paying for something that helps a far larger number.
