@Lemon thank you so much! The update in Kingdom worked :)

@Bristow

Kingdom: I’ve updated the TVDB ID to the correct one, and should be up to date now

Trackers: I checked the tvdb website and it only has 5 episodes. Their API only returns the Aired Order which is missing the 6th episode. I would need to investigate this a bit further. I’m not sure if we will be able to pull that data easily.

V (1983): The extra season was probably caused by the tvdb API returning that extra season at one point but then got deleted. We import data but never delete things automatically because of their flaky APIs. Currently, there is no way to delete duplicate seasons on our site. I’ve put it on my backlog of tasks to add support for.

Honestly, I’m kinda getting sick of their inconsistent APIs and considering moving away from their data as our primary source. Its a ton of work to update our data sources though. I’m currently working on a new UI which I want to release first :)

@bristow, thanks for the info and links I made a note to take a look at this in the next couple of days.

@Lemon ok, i can see this:

- Kingdom's tvdb url is wrong, it takes you to this: https://thetvdb.com/index.php?tab=series&id=359071
Is it possible to fix this? It should take you to this:
https://thetvdb.com/index.php?tab=series&id=355228
Be careful with the links, followmytv is adding this text "amp;" i dont know why, but if you delete that once you have click on this last link, it takes you to the correct Kingdom's site :)

- Trackers: here, in tvdb there are two differents ways to show info, "aired order" and "cinemax" so in this case I think we cannot do anything.

- V (1983) I dont know what is wrong here, the link is correct and the information is ok in thetvdb but it is wrong in followmy.tv :(

Thanks.

@bristow, If you look at each show page in the bottom right in the importer status. it will tell when it checked this show the last time and when it detected new data.

If the episodes do not show up in recent checks, that means the upstream thetvdb.com page does not have the episode yet.

Hi @Lemon I have some issues, could you help me?

- Netflix's Kingdom has 2 seasons but here there is only one

- Trackers has an episode 6, but here there are only 5

- V (1983): season 1 should have 2 episodes only (miniseries), instead of it, we have repeated episodes from season 3.

Thanks!

@tiagoh It's due to the change in the data source. TheTVDB is much less stable than TvRage was.

I either spend my time building the new site, API and mobile apps. Or I spend my time fixing up this old code-base for long-term maintenance.

I decided to focus on the rewrite and only fix bugs in this version, especially since I have so little time to work on fmtv in general.

As a result, there might be more data errors, or bugs take a bit longer to be fixed. But in the long run, I want to get the new site up before the new TV season kicks off.

@lemon I don't mean to put pressure on anyone, but we really need a full update on everything that is going on in this site right now. Because since it began failing a couple of years ago it has never returned to being the same thing as before, despite some fixing here and there. I know you probably do this for free and don't have enough free time to deal with it everyday, but this community has always been so faithful, we deserve to know what to expect. Thanks in advance for not giving up on this!

@tiagoh Trying to find time to finish the feature. I got some of front-end done already. Still need to do the thetvdb integration bit.

I know the question has been asked several times, but how long until new series are added to the database? It's been so long...

Hello there.

I was just wondering, do you know what the plan is with new shows? On the last blog I've put up about 17 shows not on the Database? Are shows getting slowly added? Are you just maintaining current database shows at the moment?

A few of the shows I've seen mentioned by other users a few times. Is the contribution system on it's way? I would be happy to submit things.

@Lemon some shows are starting to show the episode names as "TBD" or something like that... do we have to worry about this? It's like it's not updating.

And other question: what about new shows?

@dude8604 Facebook changed their API's drastically and its a lot of work to fix this on the old codebase :(

Did followmy.tv stop posting episode check-ins to people's Facebook walls/timelines?

@Lemon The site seems to not sync with TVrage. Added episodes on TVrage don't appear on here. Is going on a couple days now.
