The episodes list voting pages are good. Although it would be useful if when you've chosen to vote on episodes, clicking another season took you to the voting page for that season instead of just the episode list. Plus, is there any reason why Specials aren't included?

Guestbook comment notification:
I know this isn't a social networking site, but when you get comments or wall postings on Myspace or Facebook, you get a notification when somebody writes a message. Perhaps you can enable something in your settings to give you a PM when somebody comments your guestbook. I don't know. Not that important, I suppose.

I had another idea, but since I hijack this thread on a day-to-day basis, it will probably come back to me.

Even a number next to the sidebar link like we have next to inbox and site news would be nice ... like for each new one since the last time we checked... though I don't know how possible that would be to implement

When an episode is the most recent in a series, there is only a previous episode button in the top left corner. Maybe there could be a button in the top right corner that says "Add next episode" or "Add new episode".

When adding similar shows, one must do so by entering the show identifier. There is a link to a search function, but it seems to me that a more natural interface would be one that permits a search, and when the user clicks on a show link, adds that show as a similar show. It takes a step out of the process, and therefore both simplifies it and makes it more reliable, IMO.

Doesn't it open the search up in a new window? So you can just close it once you've found the ID number and you're right back at the original window. Although having the option of simply added it right there would be nice, but you would have to get rid of the new window opening because you would have two opened at that point.

That's a good idea. You could also just have a number there that has the amount of signs on the Guestbook, much like the Poll and Reviews above it.

For the news category for people, there should be an engagement/marriage/divorce category, baby category, or just a Personal Life category. The PL category would probably be the most convenient. Otherwise, the categories are kind of limited as of now.

Can each show have their own Banner? And maybe a section for video clips (trailers, teasers, etc)

Many shows don't even have a main picture.

The important shows do, the ones people watch.

IMO, removing the word 'Recurring' (but leaving the part that says 'First appearance' et. al.) would get the idea across but save space on the line, and reduce the number of wraparounds, creating a more compact display in the guest stars section.

Paper Rage:

On sites like [shiny blue logo] and Wikipedia, they have printable versions of their guides and articles. I think it'd be neat if you could make the episode guide printable (well, technically, you could just press the print button, but in the printable version, it would remove all the excess ads and other stuff. Perhaps some random Cheers fans wants the episode information of season 2, episode 3, but is on a train to Bristol and has no access to a computer. Well, he can just pull out the printed manuscript of the episode. They can view the summary, recap, trivia, goofs, references, and everything. Yeah!

I was gonna make that a topic, but whatever.

^ I think that's on Sebs todo list for the future. But I'll add it to the Worthwhile Idea's list we keep too. Definitely something that would be useful.

Improved Forum Search:
When you search the forums, you are able to search with topic title and message or both. But when you search for message, you have to search the entire topic for that message. How about when you search for message, it redirects you to that post?
