  • Changing Your Profile Image


    Hello!


    Today we are releasing a new feature that will allow you to toggle between your uploaded TV.com profile image and your Facebook profile image (if you are connected via Facebook) on your profile. The image change will be reflected everywhere on the site except for in reviews & forums (we know you'd like that too & it's on our queue to look at!).


    To toggle your image, go to your profile and hover over your profile image. You'll see a CHANGE IMAGE button appear like this:



    When you click on CHANGE IMAGE, you'll see the option to use your TV.com profile image or your Facebook one!



    Let us know what you think!

  • Images in Site Blog Posts


    Hello!


    We noticed today that the images we uploaded to Photobucket for our older site blog posts have stopped working. We've worked out a new way to upload images that will allow them to stay up indefinitely. I will not be replacing older site blog images but if there's anything you want to see from an older post do let me know! Future posts will have working images.


    Thanks for your understanding!

  • New Community Dropdown and Feed!

    Today we've released a new dropdown option in the site header that will give you immediate access to all of your community pages! This is now live!

The Communities Feed is a new feature that will show you all of the new posts that have been made in the communities you have joined! The feed defaults to showing what's new first so that you won't miss a post!



    We hope you enjoy and let us know what you think!

  • Community Pages Announcement




    Hello,


    We believe that the most important part of TV.com is our passionate user community. Every month, we see millions of comments, ratings, reviews, and discussions about your favorite shows. Yet despite all this great content users like yourselves are already creating, we've gotten a ton of user requests for you to be able to express yourselves in more creative ways. That's why today we're launching a new type of page -- what for now we're calling a community page.


    For the first time, users, in addition to TV.com staff, will control the content on this community page and can post new kinds of content such as photos, polls, links, and videos. Users can also create full-length written content that will live on the community pages side-by-side with TV.com "official" editorial content.


    We've chosen a few shows to launch as beta pages, which you can find below. You can also reach these new community pages by clicking the link to them from the banner image on any of their show pages.





    Users who contribute a lot to these pages will begin to be ranked in the Top Members section of each community page. You can improve your ranking in each community page by creating posts that have lots of interaction from your fellow fans, such as views, comments, favorites, and shares. Please note that the points system on community pages and show/episode pages are not currently connected as we learn how people will contribute to these pages.


    Right now, these pages are separate from the show and episode guides. Any reviews or episode discussion items you post on the show and episode pages will not appear on the community page, and vice versa.


    Have fun with the new community pages and let us know your thoughts!


    The current beta pages:


    Breaking Bad


    Continuum


    Dexter


    Doctor Who


    Falling Skies


    Game of Thrones


    Graceland


    Mad Men


    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


    Merlin


    My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic


    The Newsroom


    Pretty Little Liars


    Sherlock


    Teen Wolf


    True Blood


    Under the Dome

  • Hello, from Andrew!




    Hello, everyone! I'm Andrew, and I'm really excited to have joined the team at TV.com. I will be helping Jessica out, making sure all your show pages are problem free! My taste is fairly eclectic, from old school Trek to the underrated Felicity to the funniest show on TV today, Parks and Recreation. My favorite series of all time is a toss-up between Lost and The Muppet Show. Latest obsessions include Hemlock Grove and (DON'T JUDGE ME!) My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. (I mean, c'mon -- they've riffed on The A-Team and The Big Lebowski in two separate episodes. What's not to love?) If it's smartly written and well-executed, I like it. If it keeps me guessing, I love it. If you'd like to chat about your similarly divergent tastes in TV or just say "Hello!" PM me at Andrew_Moore.

  • Spam Update 6/5


    Hello everyone,


    Many of you have reached out to let me know about the increasing spam problem in the forums. We are aware of this issue and have started putting more manpower on trying to help clean up the forums. We are working on possible solutions for this issue and I will be sure to let you know when we are able to make improvements.


    Until then, the best thing you can do is to keep marking these posts as spam so we can get them off the site. We are working on doing it, as well.


    Thanks for your patience while we deal with this problem!

    Thanks!

  • Crew Role Fixes




    Hello,


    Many of you reached out to let me know that we had incorrect crew role groupings and role duplicates in the Cast & Crew Tool list. We have been working on creating a new list & it's now live!


    We have not added any new roles (but thanks to those of you who have made suggestions for new roles we should have). Instead, we were working on re-ordering the list using the roles we already have. Adding new roles has to be done in a totally different database, so that is a separate issue.


    If you find any mistakes regarding the list that is now live, please let me know & I will keep a list of any other changes needed. We will deal with any missing roles at a later date.


    This should be an improvement from what we had before now. Please let us know what you think!

  • Moderating Reviews/Spam



    Hello,


    There has been an issue where the site would not let you moderate or flag a review or episode discussion item as spam if you were the editor of the show. We have fixed this issue & you are now able to flag reviews/episode discussion items on all shows.


    Click on FLAG or MODERATE under the review and you will get the option to mark it as spam for staff review.


    Please let me know if you have any questions!

  • Cast Reordering is Back!


    Update 5/10: The NaN Airdates issue is back. We are working to fix that. Thanks for your patience.


    Hello,


    Today we are releasing a fix that will bring cast reordering back to the cast & crew tool. Thanks for your patience while we worked on bringing that back.

    Thanks!

  • Site Updates 5/7


    Update 5/8: Many of you have brought it to my attention that we got rid of cast re-ordering. This was unintentional and we will have it back soon. Stay tuned for updates on timing. Thanks for your patience! Crew re-ordering will not be returning.


    Hello,


    We have some exciting updates releasing today! These updates are now live on the site.


    1. We have fixed the NaN countdown to air date issue that I posted aboutyesterday.


    2. There was an issue that was causing shows with very long crew lists to give an error when editing. We have fixed this issue and long crew lists will be editable again. If you do get a 503 error when trying to edit long crew lists, please PMmeto let me know so we can try to handle on a case by case basis.


    Let us know what you think! Thanks!

  • NaN Airdates Update


    Hello,


    Many of you have reported that upcoming airdates are appearing with a NaN countdown to air date instead of the proper countdown to air date. We are aware of the issue and are working to fix it. We will keep you updated!



    Thanks for your patience!

  • UTF-8 Update 5/3/13


    Hello!


    Recently many of you have reached out to me to let me know about missing data on the website. Special characters and accents were causing text to disappear on the website.


    Today, we were able to fix that issue and we are pleased to announce that we were able to recover the missing data and get it back on the site. You may still see some goofiness with the special characters themselves, but the missing data should be back.


    If you see any widespread examples of missing data, please feel free to reach out. Any smaller issues can now be corrected via the edit tools.


    Thanks & happy Friday!

  • Site Updates 4/30


    Update 2:01pm: This is now live! You can see an examplehere.


    Hi!

    Let us know what you think!

  • Mod Queue Backlog


    Update 9:40AM on 4/26: My mod queue and PM system are back to working how they did before the problems. Please let me know if you are still experiencing any issues.


    Hello,


    I just wanted to give you all a heads up that I am experiencing issues with the mod queue that are preventing me from being able to clear our the subs for any shows without editors. We are working on the issue and are hoping to have a fix soon. Until then, you may notice that your subs for shows without editors are taking longer than normal to get approved/rejected.


    Please let me know if anyone else is having issues with their own queues so we can determine if this is site-wide or account related.


    Thanks!
