You can now also "follow" a channel and get notifications whenever a new show is added to it. (you can do that by browsing the channel).
A couple of other site tweaks: the browse section channel picker has now Prominent Channels and All Channels sections to help you navigate those quicker; the inbox link (that was next to the settings link) is now moved to the notifications popup where even no premium members will get a notification when they get a message.
As always - play around with the new features and let me know of any problems/comments/suggestions/critique you have. If you're not a premium member - please consider getting premium - it'll help me a ton with the costs of running and developing the site and you'll get cool features in return! Enjoy!
Here is what I'm working on - site and email notifications! It's work in progress, but I want your feedback ...
In short - notifications will be helpful ways to keep you up to date with what's going on with your shows without having to keep an eye on everything yourself - through email or notifications bubble on the site.
For example, you can get a notification whenever a show is canceled/ended or gets a pilot premiere date. When there are new episodes in your Stuff To Watch or a new show on a channel you follow gets added (following a show will be a new thing as well). A full list of the possible notifications (for now) can be seen in here. Also - here is how the new | opened | read notifications will look like.
What do you think? A feature that'll turn you Premium (if you're not already) or it doesn't seem useful at all?
Please let me know your thoughts and suggest new notifications! Comment here or in the forum thread.
As I started working on this, I knew it was gonna be a process and not a single move where I just swap the font and the sizes and everyone is happy with the result :)
So here goes act 2 - Most people seemed to like the increase of the font size, but some were very unhappy with the font itself. And I don't disagree with them. I like Verdana too, and at 12px it's OK on all browsers, but it's kinda too big for the width of the site. Especially on Firefox.
To accomodate for this, I increased the site width a little (only 30px) and tweaked some widths here and there, and I think the result is great. Also, the Today's, Tomorrow's were getting pretty stuffed, so I hid the episode name to show only on mouse over.
Please let me know your thoughts. I'm ready for act 3, though I really hope you guys like it as much as I do :)
Update: Episode names can be turned back on from Settings/Site tweaks.
