  • UPDATES to Submission Forms

    User submission updates:

    - WYSIWYG Editor is now available for episode summaries/recaps and for reviews

    - New Submission Form for Quotes:



    It's now easier to submit quotes to guides. You don't need to manually bold character names or add in colons between character names and dialogue. This will be done automatically. However, any italicized text within the dialogue will still need to be coded with < em >< /em > tags.

    For Editors:

    - Layout for Show Cast/Crew reordering page is now fixed and once again matches with the layout for episode cast/crew reordering.

    - Editors are now able to reorder Quotes, Trivia, Notes, and Allusions on episodes via a drag and drop interface. Simply go to the Trivia page and click the Re-Order link to access the reorder tool.

  • Submissions Issues

    Hi,

    As most of you have noticed, we have implemented a new WYSIWYG editor in the submission fields for trivia, quotes, notes, and allusions to make it easier for you to format your submissions.
    We're also really excited about the upcoming improvement to our Quotes submission tool which will automatically format quote submissions for you! This is going to be great for all those lengthy conversations between Liz and Jack on 30 Rock.

    Our Community Staff is dedicated to keeping you informed of any changes we make to the site and listening to your feedback. TV.com's goal is to make submitting to our People and Show guides easier and more enjoyable for everyone. We know change is often accompanied by questions and concerns so, as always, please feel free to PM staff with your thoughts. We greatly value our open dialogue with all of you.

    Happy Submitting!

  • Changes to Submission Forms

    The submissions fields for Quotes, Notes, Trivia, and Allusions on show and person guides now utilize the simple to use WYSIWYG editor already available on forums. This is to give submitting users the ability to quickly format their submissions without having to encode the HTML manually. All submission formatting guidelines still apply.

    Update: For those wondering about the extra spaces between lines, you can use Shift+Enter rather than just Enter. Using Shift+Enter won't add in any extra line breaks to your submission.

  • Site Issues - FIXED

    The issues with episode submissions has been fixed. Users should be able to submit to episode summaries as usual and editors may moderate those submissions accordingly. The additional US air date field has been removed for now, but we will still look at ways to implement this in the future.

    There was also an issue with the site blog not displaying on the forums page, but this has also been resolved. Thanks for your patience and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

  • Episode Submission Issue

    As you might have noticed, the episode submission form has changed somewhat. Implementing user suggestions, separate air dates for non-US originating shows has been added to the form. However, the deployment of this feature has had some unforeseen effects on episode submissions as a whole. We are well aware of the issues and are working to resolve them.

    In the meantime, please refrain from submitting episode summary edits and moderating current episode submissions as they will not publish correctly to the site. We apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience as we work on resolving the issues.

  • Issue with Episode Guides

    Hi all,

    Currently there is an issue on our site concerning the episode guides. Rather than displaying the episodes on the latest season, the page is showing all episodes. We're aware of the issue and are working on resolving it. Thanks for your patience during this time.

  • Vote!

    It's December, which means it's time for the yearly overview of television's best and brightest. First off, bid a fond farewell to 2010 in Best of 2010, where you get to decide the most notable shows and faces of the year.

    Secondly, the competition for the smartest character on TV is heating up. Will Abby from NCIS take the prize, or will it be Dr. Spencer Reed from Criminal Minds? Don't count out Dr. Brennan from Bones or Fringe's Dr. Walter Bishop either. Jump in and vote for who you think is television's overall Smarty-Pants.
