Good news, everyone! *
This year, I’m going to dedicate all my free time to work on MyTVShows 2.0
It’s been 2 years since we had to shut down the sign up form due to some scalability and performance problems. Unfortunately, during that time, I haven’t been able to work on fixing MyTVShows as I wanted, and time went by. I’ve tried to create a new version from scratch, but it never went past 30% of completion, again, due to lack of time.
So, this year, my goal is to have MyTVShows back up again, and add all those most wanted features you’ve all been asking for.
In order to open registrations as soon as possible, I’m going to focus on having the basic and most fundamental features working for everyone (adding shows and marking episodes as seen/unseen). All the other features, like the friends list, statistics, timelines, etc will be added later.
Of course, I’ll also have to fix the scalability problems and try to incorporate some new features like adding the episodes automatically and add notifications for new seasons of the shows you’re following.
I’m also considering ditching theTVDB.com and moving to TVRage as our source of data. It seems TVRage is a bit more stable than a user generated database like theTVDB.com (which keeps adding duplicated episodes).
So, I hope I can accomplish this as soon as possible, but don’t expect anything to be ready in just a month or two. It will probably take some time to do all the work, and I’m still going to do it on my free time.
Wish me luck
