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.

@Xeniiaa Thanks, I've synced up those Flemish shows now, had to implement the dutch locale support into the TheTVDB importer but it works lovely now. It should also have all the plots in dutch too (if available).

@Xeniiaa The email address should work, strange :/ Do you have the TheTVDB.com ID's for those dutch shows?

@Teena Thank you so much for donation, members like you make followmy.tv tick every day! As for the friend request issue, I'll look into it after I fix the social connections.

Thanks so much for the update @Lemon! When and how can I help? I'd love to add information on the site! (BTW, I just donated €25.00 - I hope it helps you guys keep doing the awesome stuff you have been!)
Also, I'm having an issue, I can't click on "Add As Friend" for some people. It just reloads the page and shows the same thing as before.

Is there any way to update shows that haven't been updated using the new site? Speaking about "You, Me and the Apocalypse" (previously, "You, Me and the End of the World") specifically. Thanks very much!

@chrisisawesome: I'm working on a fix for the social integration, if you disable "Post to Facebook" in your settings, it should work again.

@lightbrand: We switched data providers, some data corruption was expected since they use different season / episode numbering for some shows. We are working on tools for the community to help fix these

Star Wars Rebels still bugged + now many of already ended shows now showing as not watched again...

Since the update is anyone else's profile not letting them click watched on their unwatched shows? When ever I clicked watched on a show, I have 3 little bars directly above the watched button buffering whilst nothing else happens.

A few things I've noticed haven't updated, don't know if it's known.

Hunted (UK)
Jamie's Superfoods
TFI Friday
Gardeners World.
