**'''Agree''' - The episode numbering should match that of the producers/production company/owners/DVDs/etc., not the whims of this site. Sure it would be some work to update the site, but I have no doubt that the avid contributors are up to it...--[[User:Wittynickname|wittynickname]] 17:32, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

**'''Agree''' - We should also consider the growing factor of DVD sales. When lost is over, I think lostpedia will still be the number one source for viewers that know Lost only by DVD. Therefore, we should adapt the episode count to ABC and the DVD boxes--[[User:Asian Dawn|Asian_Dawn]] 17:49, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Straw Poll

Please sign your name using four tildes (~~~~) under the position you support, and please add a (hopefully brief and well thought out) comment. If you are happy with more than one possibility, you may wish to sign your names to more than one place. Extended commentary should be placed below, in the section marked "Discussion", though brief commentary can be interspersed.

  • Implement retroactive renumbering and renaming of the episodes as they will be known in syndication and on the DVD releases
    • Agree - Here's some brief reasons. ~~~~
    • Agree - We should have 100 separate episode articles since ABC considers "The Variable" the 100th episode. Regardless of how they originally aired on TV, ABC (the website and DVDs) now considers the finale episodes as separate, subsequent episodes and we should recognize that here on Lostpedia. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 01:12, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Agree - Per CTS. QuiGonJinnBe mindful of the Living Force... 17:28, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Agree - We should match up with ABC. I suggest we get things right for Season 5 finale and work on this in more detail during the hiatus. Let's use the next few weeks to draft and approve the official policy (based on this RFC).    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 17:30, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Status Quo: Keep episode names and numberings as originally given in the official press releases and as they originally aired
    • Agree - Here's some brief reasons. ~~~~


  • Combination Approach: Keep episode names and numberings, but add alternative "production hours" labels to episode articles
    • Agree - Here's some brief reasons. ~~~~
    • Agree - This option is also an acceptable solution for me. It will certainly work as a short-term solution.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 17:30, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Don't start a new article called "Exodus Part 3" but just put in the episode info that "Exodus Part 2" is the 24th and 25th episodes of Lost (also do the other finales this way) then the numbers will be correct but we won't have to make a bunch more new articles.
