Added little functionality to next-flick.net - favorite directors - You can now make a list with your favorite directors and check out a list with movies from those directors in the "movies from my directors" menu. Every movie has now director(s) details in it's info page as well.
In other news - still trying to setup the iphone development environment, but stay tuned, it'll happen eventually.
A multiple time requested, and long time pushed back by me feature, is on it's way here - RSS Feeds.
On the bottom of the page, there is now an RSS Feed link, which will lead you to a page listing all available RSS feeds on the site - for now, that's news, botd, and your stuff to watch list (which is a brand new feed).
I will be listing more feeds in there as they become available, in the mean time - what other feeds do you need? Do you like/find useful the stuff to watch list feed implementation?
It's now possible to remove a movie permanently from "movies with my actors" or "currently hot" by clicking on the "hide" link. (well, it's almost permanent - you can unhide a movie by going to the settings page)
This feature should be useful to keep your lists tidy and clean and show you only the stuff you're interested in.
Some of you noticed, for others - this will be news - We have our very own Chat now - You can find it right before the forum link in the main menu, and the little number in the brackets is the people currently online in there.
"But wouldn't this just give NotAStalker another means of stalking us" - people keep asking me. Yes it would my friends, yes it would.
- "my actors" and "my actors movies" - useful for when you want to track some actors - "movie info" - when you click on a movie name - release date, cast - more info coming soon - some more minor fixes and updates
An integration to next-episode.net is coming these days as well as improvements to the current layout and navigation of next-flick.net. Please share your thought on the new features:)
Also - the "What would you suggest to the people that enjoy..." feature on next episode hasn't been working for about 20 days now (just noticed and fixed it). Please go ahead and add some recommendations for the shows you know and have seen :)
I've been working on this for a few days now. It's a service that is meant to help you keep track of the movies you're watching - you know, when you decide there's a movie that came/is coming out that you wanna check out, but then - 5 seconds later - you forget?
Well, now you can use next-flick.net to remember those for you. (10x for the domain name idea Ben!) If you are a Next-Episode user, you can use your username/pass to login to next-flick.net.
More features (and current bugs) are to be expected. I've created a dedicated forum for this. As always, comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated :)
With 2008 behind us, I thought it would be interesting to dig out some site usage stats. For example, last year we've had 116 news posts, with total of 2023 comments to them. The most commented news post was when I re-invented the stuff to watch feature. Still, less then 1/3 of the users on the site use it. What's wrong with you people ... :) 424 people tried the signature feature, and yet, only about 20 of them actually use it. Come on people, use it, help the site grow ... Or if you have a site or a blog - link to us!
In Karen's realm of BOTD greatness - there were a total of 137,619 botd votes since the rating feature was launched. The comments on BOTD for 2008 summed up to 4663. More stats and info about future improvements - soon :) In the mean time: a)www.bentheman.com (karen is gonna kill me for this) and b) desperate housewives 5x11 is out
Still drunk? Ok, get some sleep and come back later.
Feeling better now? Excellent. So - how was it? Had any fun yesterday? I know I didn't (see the twitter page for details - altho the night ended in 2 hours of SingStar singing at home, so it wasn't that bad).
Anywho, happy new year everyone, n-e crew wishes you all the best and stuff like that :D
