So, the UK/US distinction is done. You can see it in the drop down menu
on the top-left of the site.
Also, I've made a more reasonable channel distinction
(although you won't be able to see the difference) - so now we can make
some kind of a schedule. Let me know what you think will be most useful?)
For example, you pick ABC and see it's current schedule ... or what?
I'm open to suggestions ...
Okay, I've made a new one, so you might as well try it out :P
Let's see how well you'll do ...
Note, that it is not actually an intelligence test, more like a fun mind game :)
Everyone loves Fox, right? I mean they're always on the ball, canceling all the crappy shows like Firefly and Arrested Development. How does a show, directed by Ben Stiller with Jack Black and Owen Wilson sound? Crappy, right? Of course, that's why it never saw the light of day at Fox. Here's the (pilot) for you to enjoy!
And remember ALL MONKEY TRAMPS DANCE ON PARAGON'S LAP!
This week has been kinda slow, I know. I promise more good stuff for
the next week ;) I didn't really have the time to browse the net
recently, so I don't know what's going on.. If you have some good
links to share - go ahead, post in here ... We have to give something
to the next-episode.net users to look at now, don't we?
On a side note, last week we had something about Lego creations,
here's a small addition to it ;)
A new episode of Prison Break is already available (2x15 - ahead of it's schedule), and I thought it was important enough to inform you ...
Another reason for this news update is that .. thing ! (OMFG!!! Laughed pretty hard on this one, blame Arashi for it if you don't like it, and praise me if you do ;)
Since I've been extremely busy these days, I don't actually have a quality link for ya.
However, I've been thinking for some time now, wouldn't it be good if we have some
kinda feature, that will allow you to post some thoughts, reviews, opinions or
something like that on episodes? For example (nothing in there for now)
https://next-episode.net/username would be a personal page for the user
where he can post some stuff - for a whole series, or certain episodes
or whatever .. haven't really figured it out yet.
Any thoughts on what will be cool/useful?
Can you guess what it is?
In other news - I've removed the ability for unregistered users to add shows to their watchlist (decided to clean up the database, because it was getting pretty messy, keeping all the info about every user that visited the site and added things to his watchlist.)
Also, I've added a demo page, so that the unregistered users can finally see what's in, and spare the 10 seconds needed to register :)
I've done some changes to the site recently, and I wanted to hear your opinions ...
First of all, I've removed the ads completely for the registered users (yeah, there are still some in botd and the forum, but they are way out of the content). I think I'll just keep this site as a hobby and won't bug you with ads anymore (but I don't promise that:)).
Another thing is, that Crazyguy (I call him "THE MAN") made some modifications to the "stuff to watch" thingie, so now you can mark separate seasons as watched, you have the oh so requested checkboxes and also episode name and air date for the "Stuff Left to Watch" (I found the date as being extremely useful in cases like "the colbert report" or "the daily show"). So, there's that.
I also tried fixing the calendar issue, so feel free to share your experience with it - does it work well now ? Or is it screwed even more?
Now - what's to come - I'm thinking of adding the "Stuff Left to Watch" screen on the front page, so that I'll save you a few clicks :) It'll be optional though ..
And a final thing - as it gets very unconfortable posting such news in here (that is more of a newsletter stuff), I think I'll be adding an e-mail field to the registration process, and also a mechanism for existing users to enter their email (I'm thinking of making it a bit annoying, so it won't give you rest until you enter your e-mail) ;)
I hope that won't be a problem, as you should know by now, that I won't spam or abuse your e-mails in any way ...
That's it for now, let's hear your thoughts ...
P.S. I should use this opportunity to thank karenbear for doing such a great job with the babe of the day section, so, thanks! :)
Well, that's the exciting thing I was talking about yesterday :)
Finally - the thing is here. Couple of people tried helping me with that thing, but the big THANKS goes to Crazyguy, who did it all by himself, with like 3 words of explanation from my side and I only needed 5 minutes to implement his code.
You'll need to play around with it for a while in order to setup things, but once you've set what's already been watched and what not, it should be a useful tool.
As always I'll be counting on your feedback in order to make the feature better and more useful. Give it a try - it is in the menu, with the stupid (but temp) name stuff to watch.
Conan O'Brien sends Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to visit New York's Chinatown for Chinese New Year.
in other news - I'm just overwhelmed with work these days (and also with playing BloodRayne2), but expect some exciting new stuff in here soon :)
Maybe even the calendar issues will be fixed? Who knows, who knows...
