  1. Settings for Notifications On Followed Members

    Nope sorry
  2. You Don't Know Jack Ryan

    She grew up in a hippie commune.
  3. On/Off Air buttons missing

    Sounds like Javascript wasn't running/didn't fire on your end or something along those lines (which could be a weird one time sort of glitch on this end but it smells local).
  4. Forum Beta Testers Needed

    Hello, We are looking for some volunteers to kick the tires on the beta forums. It doesn't matter what devices or browsers you use to visit as we are looking to catch weirdness on desktop, tablet and mobile. We'll ask you to register, post, and do whatever it is you do regularly in a sandbox environment (this is a separate build of the forum using fake posts/data) and report on any errors, design quirks and confusing bits. I'm collecting names now and the beta test should start within two weeks pending the completion of one last critical core edit. Interested? Post below and I'll PM you when we're ready. Many thanks.
  5. Can't "peek all shows" w/Chrome

    Confirming this bug. We'll be ditching the custom homepage and peek system for something different soon so in the meantime I would suggest like using the link below for all shows. http://forums.previously.tv/forum/5-shows/
  6. Can't sign in via Twitter

    This is fixed in the next release of the forum software and is due to changes in Twitter's API.

  8. FAVICON Notification in Tabs

    Can I get a screenshot @Netfoot? I'm not 100% what you are referring to. Thank you!
  9. Netflix movies

    No the movies section. Netflix is basically making studio movies now a la Okja. TV movies are made of TV like the Hallmark channel stuff.
  10. Unsecure connection?

    Yeah, that's normal. :)
  11. Unsecure connection?

    Hey @Haleth sorry for the delay in replying, I was traveling this week. Can you please send a screenshot or description of where you are seeing this? Is it a pop-up or are you getting this from the icon next to the site URL? We use secure pages (https) for logins where personal information is sent from you to the site. By definition the other pages (reading the forums on http) are "insecure" but that's normal. Google is trying to get the universe to serve all pages on https (the extra S is for secure!) but we don't do that yet. We're working towards that as is most of the web but all the tech we use (ad servers, online fonts, etc) need to be on https too or we can't be https. Google's wording can be CYA hyperbolic but https everywhere is happening... slowly.
  12. [Not A Bug] All of S03 Orphan Black are missing

    It was my fault, I am sorry. Originally I killed S2, S3 and S4 but realized my mistake in time to save the others.
  13. Does Making It Work?

    Yes but that character... ugh.
  14. Past Season Forum Topics Moving To Show Forums

    There's a few reasons shows topics are being consolidated inside the show forum, but chief among them: As the site's show list grows to eleventybillion we push against the limits of the software platform and will be doing a massive re-org that organizes everything up top by genre then shows inside those areas get "big show" forums or "small show" topics. If you were around during the TWoP days, it's more like the way that worked at the top level (not the same, just closer) We introduced complexity to accomodate having 1000s of categories (like the custom homepage) but all this comes at the real cost of increased bugs and inability to upgrade the system quickly (needing to making sure all customizations work with every update). We'll be sunsetting some features and moving the workload they did to other built-in mechanisms The more we subdivide a forum, the less people use the subdivided content -- it's almost like archiving content when we do that. The downsize is a situation like a rewatch when you know you want a particular topic (e.g. S01.E08: Blah Blah) but have to find it a different way (there's useful tools for that like sort by title filter BTW). I am also experimenting with the tagging feature -- imagine being in a show forum and clicking on a "Episode" tag then getting a listing filtered by that tag (ie. only that forum's episode topics) that's where we are heading We'll have a closed beta test for the new stuff at some point soon-ish.
