Recaps...with opinions! (they wouldn't be called recaps, but they are basically recaps, except you put humour and opinions in them, so they wouldn't qualify)

Those are called "reviews," and we already have them.

No, no! Reviews are just basic summaries about certain aspects of whatever you are reviewing. What I am talking about is the same as a recap- an accurate detail moment-by-moment summary of what's happening on screen, but you throw in a little snark and humor, making it more enjoyable to read. It's not really a Episode Recap, by our site's standards though. But there is a huge market out there for Recaps. We do have the standard recaps, that aren't biased or whatever. But Kelly probably knows what I am hinting at. Gadfly has posted some in his show forum.

If this was added, it wouldn't be a contribution or anything like that, but it'd be like the review (except probably without a review count system). I guess a thing really doesn't need to be added, and it could be posted in a blog/forum, but still. I just wanted to get this out there. What I was talking about isn't even remotely the same as review, except in the fact that it's your opinions, pretty much.

If you mean the Star Trek stuff , I suppose. Although those just have comedy captions: the recaps are legit. Although I considered spicing them up a bit...

Those were the closest examples on this site. But on second though, this isn't needed. I just wanted to bring in a different "market", which really isn't what our site is about.

Yes, she does.

I hope you do. Otherwise, I'd be sort of spooked.

Just saw the new "Printable Episode Guide" option for each show. Very nice!

Anyway to also get an RSS feed going for the episode guides?

I have a couple of ideas:

Earlier in the year i posted an idea about the retired or invalid users being removed from the stats section. Although i agree that should not be done. However maybe a section in the stats page could be devoted to retired or invalid users so they wouldn't affect the current users who are trying to move up in rank. It's an idea but i think it would work well, because their title and hard work would not be removed. So basically a row of current or valid contributers and a row for retired and invalid contributers.

By invalid i mean peoples banned accounts.

Also when adding a guest star sometimes i forget how to spell a certain actors name could it be made possible to add the characters name and it would bring up the actors name who played him? I think it would make it a hell of alot easier for all of us.

Those are my suggestions please take them in to consideration.

We already have a Character Search, my friend.

Plus the Suggested People Search can help when you can't figure out the correct spelling of a name.

So i find it really annoying as an editor having to accept each submission after another. Especially when people make like 60+ contribs.

Can you guys put in a checkbox system where we can check the correct submissions and approve em all at once, rather than individually?

I gotta question, are you going to check over these submissions before approving them?

Of Course... but when you know most of them are right it gets annoying. especially with guest stars.
