Hi Thad,

The main requirement came from MovieLabs and Jim may want to follow up.

In the meantime, one requirement is to allow values such as e.g. 1a, 1b, etc. One can not only define numerical episode numbers but also establish ranks between related material such as with a pilot in different languages or its  different versions for different audiences or medias, etc.

Jean-Pierre,

Can you give a quick text string example of a real-world usage of the proposed new "postition" property that will be used for ranking ?

My thoughts are that your asking to accommodate something like "position" : "following the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Dan, all,

We had one last open issue about ranking episodes and other content resources using other than purely numerical values (e.g. as provided by the episodeNumber). EBU, MovieLabs and BBC have discussed the requirements and we have come with the following proposal, i.e. define a new “position” property, additional to episodeNumber. The “position” property is a string. This solution avoids changing the datatype of Episode Number.

;;;;;;;;;;
* Create new property called 'position' of type “string”

  with description "to define other than pure numerical ranking of an episode or other content resource in an ordered list of items (further formatting restrictions may apply within particular user groups)"
;;;;;;;;;;

Changes have been reflected in  www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/TVRadioSchema<http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/TVRadioSchema>

With these final changes, EBU, MovieLabs and BBC suggest that this is added to the next release (0.98?) of schema.org<http://schema.org>.

Best regards,

Jean-Pierre
And on behalf of Jim, Yves, and Raymond
