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!

For those who are looking for alternatives, I've been using http://www.myepisodes.com/ for almost 10 years, the site is very light, has a very simple UI, but no community interaction beside it's forum (The main reason I joined here is the ability to leave feedback on shows with other fans, discuss shows & episodes etc), the site has been around for about 13 years, the admins over there are still taking care of it constantly, updating it whenever necessary, I don't remember ever searching for a show whether it was old or new and not finding it, that includes very old shows, anime, foreign etc. The only issue I've ever encountered there was during that infamous period a couple of years ago when a major TV DB went offline but it was dealt with quickly and there hasn't been any issues since, oh and it's free (you can donate if you want), it doesn't have ads either.

I do love it here tho, just wish the admins gave it more attention, if their schedule doesn't allow it then they should at least let someone else develop and take care of it. This site could offer so much more and can be profitable too if that's a concern ..

I thought they had just forgotten about this site and moved on with their lives!!

Potentially great news!

@Gaceru Nice to finally get an update.. Even though it doesn't say much about how long it might take etc. It's better than complete silence

@janp Don't worry about that. No staff come on here. At least you are helping people out and responding to their questions.

"To any of the staff reading this, i'm only responding here because the conversation involved TVmaze. I'll be stopping now."

what staff lol, infact I encourage you to continue to post about TVMaze and if any "staff" contacts you to stop then let us know who so we know who's ignoring

If you want to make a backup of your shows then best to do it now. Once the importer breaks, we won't be fixing it anymore.

The importer can be found here: http://www.tvmaze.com/migrate/followmytv

@rentmeister has already tested and confirmed that it's working. Thank you for that. :)

@janp Thank you for the response. I remember you guys being good with feedback etc. I will have another look at your site.

@janp

TVMaze does a good job listening to user feedback for sure, something this site doesn't do. Just not a fan of the layout and simplicity personally.

Wasn't a fan of putting some user suggested stuff behind a paywall but I guess you gotta make money so I see why, I'm just not a huge fan of that. IMO basic features should be available to all, but you have stuff like weekly calendar locked behind it.

Edit: Btw you said FMTV was fixed, I disagree, it was half assed and essentially patched a hole in the boat to prevent it from sinking rather than properly repairing it. It is better than it was but episodes still don't show up a lot of the time and such.

@Gaceru me too! It is easier to use TV Time on gadget, but I am not complaining.

Where can I find this FMTV importer on TVMaze?

@rentmeister every time changes are made to fmtv in the back-end, the script breaks at our end. We already fixed it a couple of times because some people were asking for it. The importer was made a while back to help users back up their shows. This was when it looked as if fmtv wasn't going to get fixed.(which it did). The importer was only meant as a temporary tool.

@janp
Thanks for your quick response and feedback! :)
May I ask, just out of curiosity, why the importer is that much work? I would think that it's a script that runs automatically and doesn't need any kind of updates because this site doesn't change, but apparently that's not how it works?

@Saxo @ForgotMylines @rentmeister - we are in constant development based on user requests. So constructive feedback is welcome.

Regarding the importer. Rentmeister asked about getting it working again on our forums and we'll have a look at it.

Coincidentally we were talking about taking the importer down a couple of days ago. It's too much work to keep it working. After this fix, it's not staying up that long anymore. So if you wish to create a backup of your shows, this is your last chance.
