Mistake in the QV guide

There's a mistake in the QV guide in the examples for adding QV links to specific episodes. The example the guide gives does not actually work:
_"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (2001) {Once More, with Feeling (#6.7)}_ (qv)
The year 2001 is the year of the episode, but this is not how the QV works. To make it work, it has to show the year the series started, in this case, 1997. I figured this out after many, many frustrating attempts to link to episodes.

I'm sure it's driven other people crazy too. Please fix. Thank you!

Hi Amanda -

Can you post the link to the specific IMDb guide/Help page that displays the example?

Hi Amanda -

Unfortunately, we are migrating to a new system and the correction cannot be made until the transition is complete.  However, rest assured that I have filed a ticket so that when the new system is operating we will update this guide.  Thanks again for your report!
