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.

It was well worth the wait. Thank You. I have to admit tho, I did use the maze migration tool. Never actually used the site, but I was this close to give up on You. Im happy I waited.

I'm working on a feature that will make it easier to report TV shows that are not yet connected to thetvdb.com.

@Lemon Is this site going to add the new episodes of WWE Raw and WWE Smackdown? TheTVDB.com doesn't seem to have them.

A few shows that hasn't been updated yet:
Kevin from work is missing the last 2 eps http://followmy.tv/shows/47205/Kevin_From_Work/episodes
Boy Meets Girls http://followmy.tv/shows/50433/Boy_Meets_Girl_2015/episodes is missing the last one
It would be awesome to have a way to edit shows yourself. I always noticed that they were a bunch missing pictures and synopses.
