  • Movies, Re-Casting Game, and more!

    Hi all,

    We have exciting new features coming our way Tuesday 8/28:

    Movies!

    We're excited to announce that starting tomorrow you'll be able to find brand new movie pages on TV.com.

    - You will be able to add and edit data for thousands of movies including the summary, release year, rating, duration, cast & crew, trivia, quotes, etc.
    - 50 points will earn you an editorship.
    - Movies will be available in search and in Related modules on Show and Web series pages.
    - People pages will be updated to list Movie credits as well, for a more complete resume of their work!

    Re-Casting Game

    Now for something really fun - here's your chance to play the Casting Director for some of your favorite TV shows and movies! If you could re-cast a show or movie, which new actors would you want to see instead?


    We're starting with 10 of our favorites, but we'll be adding the game to many more shows and movies in the near future. What shows or movies would you like to re-cast? What show should *never* be re-made? Shout them out in the comments!

    Watched Button on Episode Pages



    You'll now see "I've Watched This" buttons on every show, movie, web series, and episode page on the site. They'll allow you to keep a comprehensive list of everything you've ever seen, saved to your new "Watch History" list. You'll have the option of sharing what you're watching with your friends on Facebook, which you can easily turn off with the "Social Sharing" option in the site header.

    Thanks and please let us know what you think!

  • User Blogs


    Hi all,

    As we improve TV.com we are focusing our engineering efforts on the features you are using the most. Because user profile blogging is a feature that gets very low usage we will be shutting it down over the next month. We are in the early stages of planning new profile pages and we're excited to share more with you soon.

    Next week, posting and commenting will be disabled on user blogs. A downloadable file of all your blogs and blog comments will be available at a later date. The following messaging will be added to the top of all user blogs:




    We will update you all with more specific dates soon. Thanks and please let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,
    Edlyn (etong87)

  • Web Series, Show Banner Images, and More!

    Updates are now live!

    Hi all,

    We're excited to announce that on Thursday 6/21 we are launching web series on TV.com. What is a web series? If it's listed on TV.com, it is high quality, short-form television. Many web series receive high profile online releases (ie: Yahoo's Burning Love) and feature big name Hollywood stars that should be indexed on TV.com and listed in actors' credits. Here's some additional info:

    - Web series can include: narratives, docu-series, serial reality shows and even talk shows airing first and exclusively online.
    - Web series will be available in search and you'll see them pop up in the Related Shows module.
    - You can become the editor of web series! You need 50 points to become editor.

    Also coming our way tomorrow are show banner images:

    We've included a countdown clock to the premiere for shows that are yet to air:

    Please let us know if you have any questions!

    Note: All Netflix links are back up and running.

  • Site Updates, Bug Fixes, and Mobile Announcement!

    Hi,


    We've made a few updates to the site that we're excited to let you guys know about!


    First off, if you have not seen our updates from earlier today, we have fixed many bugs you reported recently, including those involving the submission moderation queue and the episode reorder tool. You can see all the details here. We have also fixed two issues that were causing duplicate entries for stars to appear on some show pages and Guest Star, Cameo, and Special Guest Star roles not to appear in the Cast & Crew tool.


    We have introduced a new design in the Cast & Crew module on episode pages. Whenever there are Guest Stars, Cameos, or Special Guest Stars on the episode level, you will see them appear above the regular stars. It will be more clear very soon which ones are Guest Stars, and which are Cameos or Special Guest Stars.



    We'll also be rolling out a new design for the Trivia, Quotes, Notes, & Allusions section very soon. We will update you on that when we know more information!


    A new, mobile TV.com!


    If you're on an iPhone or Android phone, we've got a treat. You can now point your mobile browser to tv.com and view a new version of the site optimized for your smaller screen.


    - Homepage What to Watch carousel, latest News, Popular and Trending shows
    - Mobile optimized News posts with comments
    - Show and Episode pages with full Episode Guides, Cast & Crew lists, Rating, Reviews and Photos
    - People pages with full credit lists


    We will continue to add new features to our mobile site over time, so we'd love your feedback in the comments.


    Thanks,
    Michelle

  • Episode Reorder Tool Issue

    EDIT 05/09:


    - The issue with the reordering tool not being accessible is now fixed.


    - There was an issue where you couldn't access your preferences/favorites window when on certain pages (particularly profile pages and the forums page). This should now be working.


    - On your profile, the Submission Status page should have the dropdown menus again.


    - Editing the bio for a person guide should now work fine. The "Array" error has been fixed.

    - For editors, the Accept/Reject buttons on submission moderation queues should now be working normally again.


    There now seems to be an issue with forum posting which we're looking into. As always, please let us know if you encounter any errors.


    - Michelle




    Hi,


    It has been brought to our attention that there is an issue with the Episode Reorder Tool. At this time, it is not working properly & you may not be able to reorder episodes. We have identified a fix, and we should have it up in a day or two. I will keep you updated when I find out any more information!


    Thanks,


    Michelle


    EDIT: We're aware that some editors may have issues with their submission queues which may be ongoing for the rest of the day. We're looking at getting this fixed soon as well.
