The "If you like this show, you may also like:" feature has been planned from the very first day this web site started.
After trying to implement it in some complicated semi-automated ways (watchlists calculations, voting mechanisms etc.), I finally came up with a simple and user-friendly-enough idea (and time to do it), so - there:
On the show info pages, now there's a "You may also like:" information, and a simple mechanism to feed it.
Please people, contribute to this thing. The feature depends solely on the users to make it work...
Go to the pages of the shows that you watch, and recommend some other shows that are similar with them.
As always, suggestions and feedback on how to improve this are more than welcome :)
P.S. One thing that will be added soon is to filter the "you may also like" shows against the shows in your watchlist so it won't suggest you stuff you already watch. So - don't worry, it will happen.
We need a to grow the database with the recommendations first though.
Ok, so here's what I've done in order to enhance the feature:
- the episode name is now a link to the corresponding tv.com page
(you may need to do a CTRL+F5 refresh in order to make color of the link - black)
- only the 1st unwatched season of a series is visible
- added an option to toggle on/off the invisible seasons
- completely removed "tree view" (does anyone see the need for it now?)
I hope this will end the modifications of the "stuff to watch" feature for now ...
Please - check it out and let me know how it works for ya ...
Edit: Due to the requests, the link for the "tree view" is back.
Thanks for the feedback! ... 59 comments in a day, that's something ...
Based on those comments, I modified the feature a little.
Here are the changes:
- a season number and a [-] to mark it all watched
- an option to stop tracking/resume tracking a show (by clicking [stop tracking]/[track] respectively).
Those changes apply to the "flat view" only, as "tree view" is now almost obsolete, and I'm thinking of removing it completely.
Seems like I have some free time on my hands right now,and I'm thinking - I should improve the "stuff to watch" feature.
It doesn't seem like a lot of people are using it (only like 1/5 of the registered users), so I was wandering - why is that?
Do you use it? No? Why not? Share some thoughts on this one ...
Excited by the headline? Me too! (so much so I had to override a news posted like 1 hour ago).
So - go ahead and follow this link - it'll guide you to a series of videos of pure awesomeness!
P.S. The two links above point to different stuff. I felt it needed some clarification, cause people keep commenting the previous post, and obviously haven't seen the OMG GREAT thing in this one !
