so i've added episodes to the tv show, which were released out of order, someone who didn't care to research the show just renamed them to the wrong order

when i pointed that out i was told to just roll them back myself

Hello agof,
Changing episode numbers is tricky.
As you found, you can't move an episode number to be the same as an existing episode number
The best way I've found to do it is to move an existing episode to an unused episode number. Then, when that's been done, you can move another episode to be the episode number that that one had. Then, when that's been done, you can move another episode to the episode number of the first one.

It's a very long, very slow process. There are no short cuts (that I know of)

it's a different case there is no need to juggle number this time

in wikipedia that would be a simple undo button for the incorrect edit

Basically calling them episodes 501-540
Waiting for the approval.
Then reorganizing them in the correct order?

There is one thing that you might remember. Sometimes Production Companies release episodes out of order for some unknown reason. So the release date and their actual episode numbers don't match in chronological order. Some one at the company may have noticed that the quality of the prints or some other malady required repair. Required proof of your reorganization may be needed.
The series Firefly was aired out of order and mistakes were made labeling the episode order. They were corrected, uncorrected, and on and on. So it would be nice if you were absolutely sure and not conjecturing.

Hi agof, 

From looking at the episodes listed, it does appear we have some duplicate information that needs to be corrected. Please note however, our episode numbers are based on original air date, not production order. If there are 8 episodes, and 6 have already been released, these should be listed as episodes 1-6 with the two unreleased episodes listed as 7 and 8. 

Please can you provide us with any third party websites that confirm the order of the original release of the episodes that our data editors can use to verify the order of release and we will be able to look into this further for you. 

Thanks
Meredith

It appears that this is a stand alone title With the same character as the detective. Is that correct?
The wiki page is not for all 8 stand alone movies.
It is for 1 of the TV Movies.
This looks a lot like Our US Perry Mason Stand alone TV Movies
Are you trying to convert Stand alone TV Movies into an Episode format?

You need proof by way of a link to an official Page That lists these as 8 episodes.
Other links are OK too, but all 8 would need to be listed with actual episode numbers.
The wiki link, As I said it has just a single, not 8 descriptions. Or basically useless as proof.
That is the poof that Meredith is seeking.
