Fair enough. Really I should probably follow anilist, easy enough. I’ll split it then. You’re right it doesn’t hurt to have it split.
I’m not sure I quite follow. The episodes are <13m long… you’re saying they’re subdivided even more? Is it really a nightmare to only be able to track in ~13m bunches? Hopefully that situation is a rare case.
Ah. Yeah. It won’t switch to ended until 21 days have passed I don’t think. I probably should allow you to toggle statuses ongoing / finished rather than just hitting sync.
I don’t think there are a ton of people using it for that purpose. But they have to be able to accommodate deleting duplicates.
This is another fun update This only allows filtering on the search page, not your library yet. There’s a few more things I should do with watch provider info (surface on the TV series / Movie page) and auto set the location based on your IP info… but figured I push the basic version to you all!
I’ll get back to the more nuts and bolts things for audiovisual tomorrow.
Huh, very strange. I think it’d be best to resolve this with TMDB if possible, hmm. Would you mind reporting it to them? I wonder if there’s some rationale there… althogh I hope not because I don’t think i’d build something to fix this on my end
Tomo-chan is 13 episodes long, but most episodes are split up into multiple “segments”.
As you can see in this screenshot from the Wikipedia page for Tomo-chan, episode 1 consists of two segments: I Want to Be Seen as a Girl! and A Terrifying Challenge. Seems like TMDB goes off of the “segments” instead of the actual episode count.
It’s still weird, because in every other case with episodes having multiple segments that I’ve seen, it just goes off the episodes rather than segments. Examples: イジらないで、長瀞さん S1 | L22, and SPY×FAMILY S2 | L27. (note how some episodes have multiple titles, divided by slashes)
Really unfortunate. They do seem quite inflexible… and in this case the ruling seems to go against their own guidelines.
I could build out an override mechanism where I take control of the series content and do not allow syncs. I’ll probably wait until there are multiple reports across a few series before I implement something like that.
I agree though, this does probably signal that overriding the TMDB data in the future will probably be necessary.
Small bug. On the Videos list page the item types are treated as “and” instead of “or”. It doesn’t matter much since there are only two options, but I accidentally selected both Movie and TV and was surprised to get no results instead of everything.
And now I see a bigger bug with genres. If you select a genre with no results, then the page gets stuck in a state of no results, even after unselecting that genre.
@Megumin I’ve changed the UI away from a progress bar to a simple episode number with an ‘ongoing’ tag next to it. I don’t really count ‘unaired’ episodes in the dashboard as you can’t watch them yet… but I agree it’s a bit confusing.
Ah, i see. So this will be fixed if I make the ‘Min’ input optional, but the system works best if you put the current episode as episode 5 minute 0. Right now, the system still thinks you’re watching episode 4… which is why you haven’t reached the limit.
Yeah, I think it’d be nice to be able to surface ‘favorite locations’. But alphabetical makes sense…
