End of the year is here and so is the snow! You enjoying the holidays? Getting cool stuff this year?
As always - this is a convenient time for me to ask you - what are you missing on the site/apps or what can be improved upon? What do you want to see on Next Episode in 2018?
My biggest items in the TODO for 2018 are major updates to the mobile apps and better movies functionality and integration on the website. New Premium features are in the pipeline as well.
I'm honored you picked Next Episode to manage and organize your TV shows and I hope you'll try Premium (if you haven't already) to enjoy the full Next Episode experience and to directly support my efforts. Cheers!
You can now see the user rating per show in all lists on the site.
Your watchlist, the browse section and the What's Hot chart can now be sorted by top rated shows - this includes only shows with 15 or more user ratings and is based on average rating AND number of ratings.
To additionally improve the What's Hot chart - it now includes "All Time" as a time period option.
Up until now, "popularity" star rating was calculated based on how many people had that show in their watchlist.
This will still be taken into account for generating top charts and recommendations, but as of now - I have added a new 5 star rating system where every user can rate shows and we'll get a good, user generated average rating per show.
Please go ahead and rate the shows from your watchlists. Your ratings will lead to better charts and show discovery!
