Topic: Suggestion: trailer release notifications

I'm frequently adding shows to my watchlist that won't be airing soon, like https://next-episode.net/ringworld .

What happens often is that a trailer is being released (and added to the show's page), but since it's still unknown when the show will air I'll only learn about it when I manually check the page again - or when I get a notification for the first episode date and then manually check the page for a trailer (and then go hunting for one if there isn't one already).

I suggest to add an option for trailer release notifications, something like "A trailer has been added to one of the shows on your watchlist: [SHOW XYZ LINK]". I would totally look forward to those emails! smile

Comments?

Good idea.

Also, I didn't know they were making a show out of the book(s).  I love the Ringworld series.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I'll consider it - it's kinda easily doable, but it's also very niche.

That would be awesome! smile Maybe I'm wrong, but maybe many others will also enjoy this feature.

Another thing I'm planning to add (but not have developed yet) is a notification for a show (on your watchlist) that just got a trailer.

Great! smile Please trigger notifications for added and updated trailers. (Like when a teaser trailer gets replaced by the full trailer.)

Re: Suggestion: trailer release notifications

Probably won't happen for updated trailers as many trailers get updated because of broken/taken down youtube links and nobody will care about those updates.

Re: Suggestion: trailer release notifications

Hmm... how about distinguishing internally between "improve trailer" and "fix (broken) trailer" actions (when you update them)? The latter then wouldn't trigger notifications. smile

Re: Suggestion: trailer release notifications

Yeah, no, I don't see it happening - too much overhead for such a niche thing.

Ah well... better to have 70% of a great feature than 0%. cool
