The new data importer has been deployed

By Lemon - Nov 03, 2015

Dear Amazing Loyal Users,

I'm happy to announce that we just deployed an update to the website. We've deployed our new data importer which is using thetvdb.com as a datasource instead of the dead tvrage.com. This is a limited implementation and we did not move the full importer feature set to thetvdb because their API has some limitations.

Going forward, we realized that we no longer want to rely on an external API source for our data. We always thought "We are going to do our own data once our community is big enough", and I believe we are close to that minimum community size.

With that in mind, we are shifting our effort in for the new version towards community tools for open sourcing the entire data set of followmy.tv. In the future we will combine the awesomeness that is our users, and develop our own data without an external API.

As usual, since we just deployed experimental code to production, feel free to email us if you encounter any strange data related bugs.

@lemon

A lot of shows are messed up again. Comes to my mind: Gotham, Arrow, The Flash, Modern Family. What's wrong?

Gotham needs to be updated, there was an episode on TV last night that doesn't show up at all on Followmy.TV.

Its still pretty much messed up. Shows in calendar on days when they are not airing and vice versa. I think I will stick to TV Maze until its sorted out, as I need a reliable source of information, and FMTV has not been that for a while now. Just my constructive feedback.

Please change the name of You, me and the end of the world into You, me and the Apocalypse

Jessica Jones isn't updated properly. Episode titles aren't all correct and they show the wrong air date
