Topic: Add "a show you requested has been added" notification(s)

When a user asks for a show to be added, and it then is added, he or she should see "a show you requested has been added" notification (which would point to the added show and back to https://next-episode.net/request-a-missing-show/).

As it is now, it is unnecessarily hard having to remember to come back to https://next-episode.net/request-a-missing-show/ to check it again (and again wink) for the moment one is able to add the added show(s) to one's list, save the URL (which can't always be guessed in advance), etc..

Once this is coded, the end of the process of adding a new show should say something like "Thanks for requesting this show to be added, you'll receive a notification when/if it is added."

Option to also add it to the users watchlist

Yeah, as an option that would be sweet.

Re: Add "a show you requested has been added" notification(s)

The notifications settings are a bit cluttered as it is.

I don't see adding an option like that, for now ...

Re: Add "a show you requested has been added" notification(s)

I can only speak for myself, but I didn't mean to integrate this notification (and the suggested additional option) into the general notifications, and the additional option would only be visible on the page where you request a show.

Re: Add "a show you requested has been added" notification(s)

I see, this makes more sense and can happen!

Agreed, this would be the best way, as someone might add a lot of shows but not want to track them

The notifications are great and I want to come back to this idea, adding this option to https://next-episode.net/request-a-missing-show/?new would make adding shows just that little bit more awesome. smile

Then you could "set it and forget it" for the shows you request for yourself - you don't have to think about adding them to your list later.
