Thanks Justin. Will be having a look then :)
Any thoughts regarding image fallback to other languages? A failsafe could be original language for movies and the network country of origin for shows?
Hey Justin, thanks for the reply. I actually refreshed Virtues on the day I posted so it wasn't actually pulling anything beforehand. But yes, I agree - generally the updates when no artwork is available work a lot better than they used to but I also think a lot more VIPs are forcing refreshes.
I figured you are looking to save on bandwidth (for either end I'd guess) but to make it more seamless I'd say maybe up to two weeks before premiere and about three weeks after? Once people realize something started airing or hear buzz/see adverts/reviews user engagement is probably the highest for new shows with lacking/incomplete artwork.
PS: this is mostly regarding images, not data actually - that is something I never specifically looked at tbh.
At the moment there is no official way to do this since MAL trashed their already awful API. https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1740204&show=400#msg56198138
Some people work around the limitation by using the MAL android app or replicating the user logon process but this is temporary only and not something I want to pursue for http://txm.huere.net. I also put off the sync to anilist and kitsu bc I'm just that lazy. The latter having an option to sync to MAL however.
Would anyone here be willing to verify the import script (MAL --> trakt)? http://txm.huere.net/import
From my tests it should be running pretty smooth.
Since the date history was mentioned here: I'm adding them at the "end" date to the history, if it's not there then the "start" or otherwise at today's date.
There is only that much overkill you can do... None of that information is accessible in the API or visible on the list export. The amount of users that would actually click through every show for getting that information is miniscule.
What is accessible is the start- and end-watched dates. Those are however stupid fields and are kept independent of your watched dates and thus at 0000-00-00 for most people.
I finished a movie seen/rate/watchlist sync a little while ago going by that information (adding everything at either date available) but I have been lazy to bother with shows since.
As long as MAL keeps the clunky API there isn't likely much you can do.
Would that actually be a issue though or is the workaround of adding the start or end date adequate?
(and do the reverse sometime later too)
I will update it in the upcoming weeks (when I'm not lazy).
FYI: I'm not sure in what way you want the sync but the trakt -> mal way is fixed again in the one below.
I almost had at one point a proper sync from trakt to MAL finished (http://txm.huere.net/T_x_M.html) but then the public unofficial-MAL-api went down and I sort of lost interest. Maybe I'll have a go at it again in a proper way but the XML API is not really my thing :< (and I'm no expert in any of this).
The main problem is that you have to create a mapping table from trakt to MAL going by the name to the MAL id (and reverse). So far no API has done that (hummingbird had this at a point and ANiDB in some cases).
Actually just happened again. Probably going to turn on debug logging 24/7 again... Going to have to look at the script once I have the motivation but how likely is it that the response from trakt is not sending all data and that is why it sends them all again (or is the response code gospel)?
Do you mean the generation of the duplicates? When manually doing stuff I only get additional plays but never duplicates. What I am referring to is additional plays at the exact same timestamp generated from syncs from various media center plugins or mobile apps. I only occasionally try a mobile app so my main contender in my case would be the Kodi plugin (last time I cleaned up I had tripple plays for most :/).
Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.
This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.
@David: there is actually a small button next to each show to hide them from progress ;)... ex http://trakterapp.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/8-1-2016-14-13-31.png
[...] If I haven't don't the 'right thing' at this point, it means it is so non-obvious or hidden as to be effectively a missing capability. [...]
Is that specific to the calendar? All you did is remove it from your watchlist and it's not associated with your account anymore (nothing collected either or single episodes in the watchlist)? Does it show as hidden in your profile settings http://trakt.tv/settings/hidden?
I could always without fault hide a show without it showing in the dashboard under "on deck" (w hide from progress) or "upcoming schedule" (w hide from calendar).
The "on deck" also just is for recently watched shows so I highly doubt it shows up there if you watched a anything since then.
[...] try to make you go back and watch the entire rest of the series of hundred or even thousands of episodes starting with episode 1 [...]
There are always two sides to the coin. You might not want to see your actual progress but there are others who want exactly that. Do we really need a catch-all system for possible minorities (next we need an option to choose the starting year/episode)? That said, hiding the show's seasons at the progress page already gives you that option?
I also think the progress changed the behavior and defaults to the most recent episode after the one you watched?
The only thing I'd implement to make the hiding complete is the option to also select calendar or vice versa the progress and the ability to hide a single episode (for docu series for example).
Didn't mean to take this off topic though as it's about a dropped status and not hiding ;).
I agree: Hiding a show is one thing (say BBC Documentaries, SNL and things like that) but an indicator for actually "dropping" would be great.
As mentioned this was already discussed in multiple places and pops up again and again so I won't go into it. Justin has recently added the "watched" status of a user posting on an item (which I feel is sort of redundant) but maybe it's time to pick up on an old idea that was supposed to be implemented: rating breakdowns. This would at least tell you who votes as such and add some credibility?
Still a thing :(
Still a thing :(
That is a shared style so other places could have the same issue.
(progress as on the progress page :))
Was the feed this restricted since the beginning? I was certain it included other things as well but I honestly only ever glanced over it (maybe I only thought so because of the icons).
Sounds good if you get around it :)!
May I also suggest to make the inclusion of collection data optional. This adds a lot of non-substantial noise to it (an automatic action for many).
You can import data from a lot of sites with Damien's tool https://github.com/damienhaynes/TraktRater/releases
What you are looking for is a loose title based import? LB doesn't support list exports (with more info) I think?
Can't agree more! When doing lists you always have to either search with the ID's themselves to get the "correct" entry right away or spend some time going through the search results which get caped, have a hard time with short words and arn't that precise. At the end of the day you are a lot faster with just querying google/imdb search with the title.
What are "Adult" movies by your definition Justin? Just by browsing around and looking at some titles I was not able to find any "porn" or "soft-porn" (just sex comedies and the likes).
As "Redouane M." mentioned TMDB does indeed not brand Tinto Brass as such as there is "more" to it than just giving the viewer straight up fap-material fresh from the factory. Explicit sex = removed? There is a reason why it's more present in European cinema and I find it a double standard when compared with violence which is bread and butter for every action film (just portrayed more harmless). /rant
I also noticed that you block actors with the adult tag, the credits should be based on the movie's flag. People like "Sasha Grey", "Ron Jeremy" or "James Deen" have had legit movie roles but they fail to show up ;).
Planning to do this when upgrading to the TVDB v2 API.
Didn't you guys migrate to the API v2 yet :)?
Official lists are not clickable anymore making them really useless (talking about the collection ones).
