Changes On TV.com
Rolamb

On May 26th, Tim and Kaitlin, the senior editors of this site, posted a piece with the title: A few hours later the article had been removed and all mention to it on the editors and contributors/commenters pages was removed and there has been no comment from the site since. As I was asleep at that time (I live...

Our 'Sister Site' Deleted My Comment Again
As I noticed a month ago the discussion on the Game of Thrones post on TVguide.com was not very vivid (only a few comments) and as we have been invited (via links in pictures and video’s in posts, in ads and text) to visit our sister site TVguide, I wanted to do something back and invite the TVguide commenters to join the vivid discussion we have. So I posted a very polite invitational comment under both GoT posts on TVguide (I have no Facebook so I used the account of a friend of mine):



When I checked in ...Read more

Time For Action
It has now been over a month since Tim’s and Kaitlin’s post about changes on the site has been removed after only a few hours and over three weeks since my post about the Changes on TV.com has been posted. Although I only tried to bring the facts as objective as possible, there was off course a notion of concern about what was going to happen with the site. The 73 hearts and 560 comments in the discussion showed a lot more concern about the site we readers and commenters love to visit and be an active part of. There have been other posts about the same subject and there have been a lot of comments in other 'normal' posts from users I had never read anything of before (is probably my mistake), expressing their feeling of what generally they described as the decline of their site ...Read more

Are We Being Lied To? Part 1: "The List"
I remember when the communities started on tv.com - there was a lot buzz.

Users were excited to have a place to post stuff, whether it was original stuff generated by members or just links to articles, it made the members feel a bit invested.

Of course there were some bugs - and most were dealt with.

But that seemed to change as time progressed.

As more members began to use the communities, it seemed like they - and not the staff - realized their potential.

So they wanted a little bit more.

At first it seemed like the members were being listened to......but then a certain phrase began popping up.

And now it has become a rote reply by certain staff members.

Everytime a user has a complaint or suggestion the users of this site are told its "on our list".

A stock reply to any suggestions, or complaints from users ...Read more

TV.com Vs. CBS
I'd be remiss if I didn't speak my mind even if it comes to nothin' but as the communities were created to generate user content, here you go:

Y'all remember a couple months or so ago when the CEO of CBS was quoted at a stockholder meeting saying that "Trump may be bad for America, but he's great for CBS"

How many of you thought upon hearing that, that by affiliation, CBS is bad for America?

I know I did, but CBS is just as guilty as the rest of the other networks that hopped on Trump's dick with the idea that "if it's sleaze, it leads"...y'know, because ratings.

I'm not here to talk about that though...closer to home, I'm here to say that in the same vein, CBS is specifically bad for TV.com.

Now that the downward ...Read more

No more categories?
So when I click on News I can't sort the articles anymore? I dont understand why this choice was made from a web design aspect this is a step backward. The ability to sort by community post, what's on tonight, or reviews was huge. Honestly enjoyed using this site, but if I can't sort the news section by what's on tonight I'm honestly going to stop using this site all together because that was one of the main functions I appreciated. I would miss a few days of tv and want to know what to catch up on, or if something new was on I might be interested in so I would just go through all the what's on tonight articles for the past week and get a lot of really good information. Sadly this is now gone and I have to manually search ...Read more

Where has my TV.com gone?
I have participated in the comment threads of various posts pertaining the changes at TV.com. The post from @Rolamb being most notable (for the incredible article click here). In the past few days more changes have bubbled up and I can't sit idly by and not say something.

I can't recall which day it was exactly, but in the recent past (within the past week) the layout of the main page changed. At first I thought it was just a slight shifting of the stories. Looking more closely, the upper right hand area where recent news articles used to have a home is now taken up by ads - yes MORE ADS. They're EVERYWHERE. I know to keep the lights on you need ad revenue, I get the business portion of this, but it has becoming overbearing. However, if you're trying to keep the lights on ...Read more

Where's My Fork?
Ten years. It's been a hell of a run!

In 2006, a then young'ish MarcusJ1973 joined new website called TV.com. At the same time Billy Ray's daughter made her debut as Hannah Montana, Philip Seymour Hoffman was winning Oscars and 24 was the best show on TV. While we didn't know it yet, we were just about to learn some valuable life lessons that with clear eyes and full hearts we couldn't lose and that in order to save the world, we needed to save the cheerleader. A young Supernatural was entering it's sophomore season, BSG was revealing the identity of hidden cylons, The Wire was 4 season into establishing itself as the best thing to ever happen to television and we were all about to drop our collective jaws when Charlie looked for a Sharpie that could write under water. Also in ...Read more
