  • Site Update 1/8

    Hi all,

    Welcome back from the holidays! Hope everyone had a wonderful time .

    We have a small update for you guys today - autocomplete in site search now works everywhere across the site including the forums, news & people hub, and all edit pages (show, people, etc).

    If you haven't seen it yet, here's our handy-dandy 2013 Midseason Premieres Calendar. Have your favorite shows come back to air? Join in the discussion of your favorite shows in the Episode Discussion Streams.

    Which midseason premieres are you looking forward to most? I'm super excited for Shameless, Pretty Little Liars, and Game of Thrones!

    Thanks,
    Edlyn

  • Personalized TV Listings

    Hi,

    You will already see some of your favorite shows on the right hand column of our homepage if you've been marking them off in our daily What to Watch articles.

    But now you can also add shows directly to your "Shows I'm Watching" list via the homepage module in the right hand column. If the show airs tonight (new or re-runs) you'll see the listing appear immediately.



    You can always add or remove shows from your list by finding it in the site header dropdown - just look for the Star icon.



    Thanks!
    Edlyn

  • Site Updates: Movie Editorship and Threaded Comments

    Now LIVE:

    Movie Editorship
    - We realized that 50 points for movie editorship is a bit steep. We've analyzed what info is missing from the guides and how many points someone can realistically get by filling in that information. With that, we've decided to decrease the points for movie editorship down to 20. Happy editing!

    Coming soon:

    Episode Discussion/List Comments
    - We're adding in a second level of comment threading. You will be able to reply to replies in the episode discussion stream and in lists.

    FYI - Several shows are not airing new episodes this week due to the hurricane hitting the east coast. If your shows are affected, please change the air dates accordingly. Thanks and we hope all you east coasters are staying safe!

    - Edlyn

  • Happy Halloween!

    What are your plans for Halloween? Are you going to get dressed up?

    Here's our very own JessicaKroeber dressed as Amy Pond from Doctor Who!


    And here's our own TeddyWilkinsas Psy doing it Gangnam Style:







    If you don't know what you're going to wear yet, here are a few quick and easy suggestions:

    Have any extra Hazmat suits laying around? You can dress as Walt or Jesse from Breaking Bad!


    Throw on a tie and jacket, find a fake mustache (or grow a real one) and you've got yourself Ron Swanson:


    Take off the mustache and throw on a bow tie, now you're the Doctor!


    Throw on a track suit, grab a megaphone or a whistle and you can be Sue Sylvester from Glee.


    Have a tiara? Put it on with a pink dress and you can dress as Honey Boo Boo!


    We want to see your Halloween pics! We'll post ours next week .

    Happy Halloween!

  • LIVE: Show Status Update, Notifications, and More

    Simplified the show status field in the edit form.

    - If a show is airing, it should be marked "In Season", if a show is between seasons or on hiatus, it should be marked "Between Seasons", and if a show hasn't started airing yet, it should be marked "Hasn't Aired". Please let me know if you have any questions on what to mark a show.

    Notifications and New Icons
    You'll see three icons at the top right of the site header:
    --An envelope for PMs
    --A pencil for Mod Queue alerts
    --A flag for site notifications
    What triggers site notifications:
    --When someone replies to your Episode discussion comment
    --When someone comments on your list

    We're starting with a few cases and we plan to add more over time. What else would you like to get notified about?
    Also, we've combined our existing Account + List dropdowns to make things simpler

    Listings Search
    You will be able to search for shows in the listings page.

    Please let us know what you think!

    Thanks,
    Edlyn

  • Submission Issue

    Hi all,

    We've been experiencing issues processing blurb (trivia, quotes, etc.) and people pages submissions. This issue has been fixed. Unfortunately, all of these types of submissions made between noon yesterday, October 18, till today around 1:30 PM today (PST) have been lost. You will need to resubmit the information. If you aren't sure whether or not your submission went through - please contact me.

    Editors - You may have noticed submissions in your queue that have been showing up blank. This is a related issue. Please reject all blank submissions and PM the user letting them know what's happened. Feel free to link them to this post. Also, all blurb and people page submissions that editors have made to their shows during the same time frame have not been saved. You will have to resubmit that information as well.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Thanks,
    Edlyn
