I consider both of those series separate, and I've wished for a long time that the site would split Justice League and Justice League Unlimited so I could acquire the Editorship of one of them, though Murdock made a valid reason why they are not.

Justice League & Justice League Unlimited should be as separate series as much as Batman: The Animated Series and The Adventures of Batman and Robin. Remember the latter? It's the name of the third season of Batman: TAS and it got a new opening and closing sequence. Should we create separate guides for every time a season changes it's format, cast, crew, and style from the previous one? No. Otherwise we would have 10 guides for the Power Rangers. Should The New Batman Adventures (aka Batman: Gotham Knights) be separate from Batman: TAS? Yes. Why? Apart from the 2 years gap between both shows, it was made clear that is was a different show, hence the title: The New Batman Adventures. Justice League & Justice League Unlimited belong in the same show run -- they just decided for a change in format and a different title that goes along with that change. As a matter of fact, JLU relies on the incidents of JL to develop its plot-line. It's more likely that we change JLU back to its original title than to separate them.

Spin-offs warrant different guides, but the aforementioned shows do not fit in that category.

I know but some people consider them seperate and some comsider them the same..just different (I guess like DB, DBZ, DBGT)

I consider JL & JLU th same, while I dont consider Batman: TAS & Gotham Knights the same for the same reasons Murdock posted.

Guys... do you see a sign on their respective episode guides saying "This series takes place on Earth-2/3/4/(*) ?" Of course they're the same. They might have different opening credits, etc.; but they're the same.
