Viruses in the ads
Hi,
Just FYI, I don't know if you have any control over this, but in the past week I've gotten two virus warnings when the only thing I had open was tv.com. Since it seems to occur randomly (I just revisited the exact same page where I got today's virus warning, and didn't get it again), it seems to be coming from an ad.

I copied and pasted the message this last time. It's an Avast warning which said:

Community Quotes
There no longer seems to be able to see what quotes a Community has. Other than going through the entire community.

Didn't at least the most recent ones used to display in the right hand column, somewhat lower down?

So... how does one now find community thread quotes?

Incorrect premier dates
"The Messengers" and "Last Man on Earth" have incorrect premier dates on their pages. According to said pages, they should have aired by now, but neither show is due to premier until next year. Usually tv.com is my one-stop-shop for all things tv, so thought I'd give you a heads-up

The Effective Difference Between Community Posts and Discussions
(ported from an unrelated community)

@Jessicakroeber noted elsewhere:

"The discussion type should be used to post a shorter question to the community, or maybe a poll, etc. Or if the entire purpose of the post is to ask a discussion question. If you have a longer post, it should be a POST type. Those are for longer form pieces like photo recaps."

I guess I'm not clear what distinguishes the two, other then the written policy and a header saying which is which. What are the software and usage differences between the two?

Clearly it's possible to use Discussion for longer posts: I've been doing it for quite some time and this is the first time it's come up. And... I've discussed things in post threads.

As for episode reviews of current episodes, under which category do they go if they are also "unofficial" episode ...Read more

Longmire
Who else thinks this network should pick up A&E's stupidly cancelled Longmire?

TV.com Performance Review Part 1
I've been thinking about this for a while. I remember having a conversation with Pat Sullivan about various frustrations that had been building for a while, after I apparently offended a member of staff with a comment I made on a FTW/WTF article.He told me I shouldn't keep things bottled up.

Listing Show Stars on Bio Pages
Yes, most of the time show stars are listed on the stars' bio pages. But due to either a long-standing bug or a deliberate design decision...

...an actor doesn't get a show star listing on their own bio page until they are credited for at least one episode, even if they are listed at the show level as a show star.

So for instance, Grant Gustin isn't listed as a star for The Flash on his own bio page. Even though he's has been confirmed as a show star, and staff has approved him on Show Cast as a Show Star.

No one looking at Mr. Gustin's bio page would know that, however. And presumably no one will know that for about three months, until two weeks before the first episode premieres when the system adds the pilot episode in.

Is there some reason why staff ...Read more
