Topic: small suggestion for 'Episodes Guide and Summaries'

'Episodes Guide and Summaries' pages are good. Please make them awesome! big_smile

Some shows - like https://next-episode.net/the-mandalorian/season-1 - have weird dates. Ep 2 follows ep 1 after only 3 days, and ep 7 has been moved to another day too... but that fact is somewhat hard to spot, you have to add or subtract the days in your head to see that.

What I suggest: In the 'Air Date' column, add the weekday! Like it's done in the left column of the main page. So...

Nov 12, 2019
would become
Tue Nov 12, 2019

This should be easy to change and there's enough empty space in the layout. smile


Happy Halloween!

Re: small suggestion for 'Episodes Guide and Summaries'

Suggestion #2: change

Episodes Guide and Summaries
Season 4 | Season 3 | Season 2 | Season 1

to

Episodes Guide and Summaries
Season 4 [10] | Season 3 [13] | Season 2 [13] | Season 1 [10]

so you get to find out the number of eps in each season without having to click through all the seasons. This would have come in handy quite a few times in the past.

EDIT: the [xx] values could get a mouse-over info saying what that number is about; and maybe mention that the current season's number may be subject to change since not all of the current season's future episodes are known for all shows.

Comments please! smile

I remember this mentioned along with the episode grouping idea brought up a long time ago, but its placement was suggested in the calendar view. What you're suggesting makes more sense, as far as having it placed in the Episodes Guide and Summaries page.

Re: small suggestion for 'Episodes Guide and Summaries'

Suggestion 1 & 2 are now done.

Visually, the bracketed numbers in #2 are a bit too much so as a compromise - the episodes in a season now show on mouse over on the season link.

Let me know what you guys think.

Ok, I can live with that. smile If you want to pimp it up even more you could change the mouse-over info for seasons that are still "running", saying: "x episodes in season y are currently known".

Thanks! It's really good to see the days now, there just needs to be some realignment of column widths (app and web):

Re: small suggestion for 'Episodes Guide and Summaries'

Done.

It'll now say (so far) for the episode count of the last available season if the show is running and there was an episode within the last 2 months or if there is a next episode.

Updated so day of the week wouldn't be shown on mobile (there is simply not enough space for everything to fit as comfortably there).

Cool! I suggest to use "(may be subject to change)" or something like that instead of "(so far)" though. For me at least, "(so far)" sounds like there will be more.

Oh no! wink Ah well, at least the web version looks great now! Thanks! smile

Noice!

Is it possible to create a separate Specials tab for episodes marked as Specials?

For example... https://next-episode.net/superstore/season-2

Hovering on link gives 40 episodes on season 2, 19 of those are specials.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: small suggestion for 'Episodes Guide and Summaries'

One thing worth mentioning here - hiding specials everywhere from the setting here:

https://next-episode.net/settings?action=general

will also hide them from that list.

And yeah, I agree mixing up the specials with the regular episodes is not ideal.

Neither is putting all specials in a separate tab though.

Maybe a good compromise will be showing the count separately, like 10 episodes in Season 1 (+5 specials)?

Works for me.
