This is great to hear, I was just worried about getting into situations where I could grade between things I wanted to at the start
Definitely agree with this, but to be clear this did come up in the context of how to compare things vs absolute ratings. ie “I rated this show as easier than this other one because I could whitenoise more of it and still follow along” vs “to get most of the gags I had to understand all these yoji and references, so it was hard even though the plot was easy to follow”
Yeah, people are always going to have different opinions here. There’s no standard guide on how to grade the difficulty and I don’t think there should be. Some people are fine if they can just follow the plot while others want to get all the nuances. And asking someone to grade on someone else’s perception of difficulty seems fraught with more problems. Natively is really just an aggregator on relative difficulty, similar to if someone posted a poll in a forum.
I do think though that you’re right that Audiovisual might have some unique issues like that wrt difficulty. Some people may simply just be using language learning with netflix and mostly be reading the english subs without really engaging the material.
I’ll just have to trust that people are relatively good citizens wrt what they can grade. Will be interesting to see.
Regardless, even if it’s a bit noisier, it will still be very valuable and generally right, i’m sure.
As an update, books should mostly be back to normal … the search is still repopulating so not everything will be in there yet. It’ll probably take another 45 mins to fully repopulate.
Video is stil repopulating too. It’s on a similar timeline to books.
Apologies on the issues! There were quite a few issues on my production / live environment which I didn’t anticipate. There were a few movie/tv items users had added to their library that I had to delete, but the issues otherwise were purely in search, no data issues.
Ok! So all the tv shows & episodes are set and initial user items are populated. We’re finally ready to have you all give it a go. @Bijak that is a bug that I didn’t think about when marking tv series finished even when the episodes haven’t been populated. I’ll fix that up.
There’s already a blog post, but I will make the product annoucement in the forums too. Will take me a minute to write
I noticed that, despite the series being in my watched library, when I navigate to the page (for instance, by clicking on it), they are still shown as not watched.
Edit: actually, even after saying I watched something, navigating away from the page and back, the button will just get back to the green “wish list”.
Unrelated, but the forum has a weird banner for me that shows the template for the feature request page.
This is important to us for a variety of reasons, but the primary impact you’ll see is that you won’t be prompted to grade things with similar subtitle information. In other words, movies you watched without subtitles are only compared with other movies you watched without audio.
