@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?

Thanks for fixing this, Sarah! Glad it's back.

@Lemon Any plans to fix it?

Lemon (Sep 07, 2015)

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

Did 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.

Seems like the followers tab includes deleted & banned users

@harrrr why? we have 20k+ users, its only fair that 10k of them are following tbbt no ? :-)

harrrr (Feb 05, 2013)

@oranges You mean the spam? Its an ongoing problem. They seem to love to post spam messages on the news articles

oranges (Nov 26, 2012)

@Lemon Actually, that was my point. There are comments (on the news) that you guys seem unaware of.

Lemon (Nov 26, 2012)

@oranges Blog posts is more about site news. Its not yet an active part of the social features of at the moment

oranges (Nov 13, 2012)

I don't know whether it's a bug or just not implemented, but I don't think blog comments, replies trigger notifications (to anyone). Have you seen recently?
