Introducing the new contribute system

By Lemon - Sep 06, 2016

Hi Awesome Community,

We are stoked to announce that we've released our first version of the new contribute section. You will now be able to report shows that are missing in our database. This brand new section can be found on followmy.tv/contribute. We are looking forward to adding all those missing TV shows to fuel everyone's couch potato lifestyle! :D

This is our first step towards moving followmy.tv to a more community driven database. We believe that having our own data in the future is the way forward to prevent data loss.

Small update: There is a bug with oreign language shows and shows without airdates that prevents them from being imported. We are working on a fix for these. In the meantime, those shows are kept in pending review until the bug is fixed. Our apologies for this inconvenience!

Asked Lemon to run the updater again indeed. She told me it should run more often from now on!

@Gaceru: I added those. I don't know what I can do with shows without a title :(

Remember guys, if there is no air date known, I can't add it. So there are a lot of shows in there without a known airdate as of today. You can message me if your show is still not added but an airdate is known.

@kakature Hi, there are some shows that already aired that I suggested long time ago (before your return to the site) that aren't in the site (like Nightcap, El Marginal or Paquita Salas) can you add those?

Also, can you update the show SuperMansion and fix these two shows?

Thank you very much!

@kakature A couple of shows have suddenly had a flood of old episodes. I assume that was your work? If so, thank you again.

Any word from the sites founders? Or have they given up?

@Kakature Blijkbaar nog iets mis met Lotgenoten. Heeft geen titel en als ik op een aflevering klik, krijg ik een error page.

@kakature nope :(

@ForgotMyLines I could be mistaken but it looks like the importer hasn't run since 02/01 (10 days ago). I'll try to contact Lemon and see if there is anything we can do. (thx to @SilentAlarm)

@PippoInzaghi did you get in touch?

This is getting really stupid now!! So many shows haven't updated for weeks!

Shows are getting added (thank you @Kakature ) but with no episodes.

This site seems to be coming to a standstill!

I'm getting a bit pissed off I donated a good sum to this site!

@PippoInzaghi Jammer genoeg niet, probeer anders eens op Twitter?

@kakature Weet jij een manier om lemon te contacteren, op mijn mail antwoordt ze alleszins niet.

@kakature Thank you for the regular correspondence. It's really refreshing.

@kakature Enig idee hoe ik ook kan solliciteren voor admin, want heb zin om al die data eens onder handen te nemen.

If there is no 'Start Date', I can't approve the show (because of a server error).

Make sure to add it to TVDB or in the comments when suggesting a show.

It's better to wait for a proper 'start date' to suggest a new show.

A few tips for people contributing:

If you create a show on TheTVDB, please make sure to supply as much info as possible.
Especially time zone, local air time, network, country, title and description. I think this improves importing.

EDIT: And especially for foreign shows, it's hard for me to Google Norwegian or Croatian shows for example.
If you don't see the info on TVDB, add it in the "Why should we add this show to our database?" comment section please.

@Saxo I know it's been happening a long time but I don't know since when exactly! Also I don't think this sites makes money to even pay for the servers unfortunately :p

@kakature So is this a constant problem? I've been a member since late 2012 and it's never really had issues until a year or two ago. It happened before 2012 too?

Maybe lemon can hire people to do the coding, I know there's a lot of freelancers that would do it for a quick buck? I don't know how much the site makes or if it would cover the costs, but it's an avenue worth trying I guess? If lemon can't run the site any more then he/she should pass it onto someone else.

@kakature Ja ongeveer 1 keer per week denk ik. Maar ze zijn daarstraks toch gesyncht lijkt me, en alle afleveringen staan er wel, maar de titel komt niet altijd door. En de korte inhouden en episode images al helemaal niet. Alleszins eens aan Lemon proberen te vragen om die synch minstens om de 2 dagen te doen, want 1 keer per week is toch weinig.

kakature
kakature (Jan 02, 2017)

@PippoInzaghi Ik weet ook niet hoe het syncen van episodes gebeurt. Ik dacht dat dat elke nacht was, maar kan ook 1 keer per week zijn ... Ik probeer het in de gaten te houden!

PippoInzaghi (Jan 02, 2017)

@kakature Wel vreemd dat heel veel afleveringen TBA meekrijgen als titel, terwijl ze er nochtans een hebben op tvdb. Anderen komen er dan wel door. Bv Radio Gaga: Van de eerste 5 afleveringen is de titel overgenomen, van de rest dan weer niet. Indien ik ook kan helpen met de site, laat maar weten!

@kakature Every little helps, so thank you for anything you can do. If there is anyway I can help in any way, please contact me.

I'm an admin yes, I edited and added shows way before there was this contribution system. But I'm not one of the founders or a developer.

I left this site a few years ago because I was tired of not receiving updates. But I came back a few months ago because it's still the best site in my opinion (for the same reason you mention).

Unfortunately this is the way FMTV has always been. Lemon and other developers have put a lot of time into this, but it's clear they don't have the time anymore to support all this.

I don't know anything about web development so I'm afraid I can't help. I was here since the beginning so I would have helped with development if I could, believe me. :)

Today was the first time ever I have checked the contribution-queue (because I didn't know there was one to be honest lol).
I went through all submitted shows since september and approved all I could.

Only about 90 were submitted, and in my excitement I have made some mistakes. That's why you'll see some shows without a title. I'll try to get that fixed.

I'll try to check the queue more often from now on, but I can't do magic.
