If you're like many other users and don't follow many shows at all, you'll be greeted with the default content list which looks something like this.
To follow shows, you'll need to find and click the "Follow" button on the show's page.

Oh the only thing I have an issue with the front page is that it seems the placeholder is blocking the pulldown menus again. Aside frm that it looks really good so far.

@Kit-Tsukasa: In your case, every show will be huge. It's great if you're browsing using a mobile device, as I've discovered.

In any case having something on the sides as well would fill up all that white space that could be used for something. I just hope yo ufind something to add there mind you.

@Kid-Wolf: I'm waiting for a response from a popular navigation menu developer. I checked out his preview sites, but they don't seem to work for me using Chrome or Firefox.
To prepare for the next update, automatic following of shows and people will be coming soon.

I actually tried and do agree. Considering the small size of the screen it's great without having to manually zoom in at times.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting this, but I presume that something like an automatic recommendation system based on the people you follow on the forums is in the works?

|@JCDRANZER: If there were adaptive side elements on the front page, do you think you (and/or some others) would be able to manage it and keep it up to date?|
Certainly. I can keep it up-to-date, like I really would like to put a picture on the side of "Attack on Titans". We can have one side dedicated to Future Releases for the following season, like on the right side. Have a set up with slots, like 4 slots, where we put the image and captions for the "future anime".
I was also thinking that we could add an anime weekly calendar as part of FTV, showing the time and date when an episode of a series airs in Japan. This doesn't need to be part of the FTV front page though.

@JCDRANZER: I might be able to make something work with the extra space on the sides of the front page. Do you have enough information/sources of info to keep the calendar populated?

You mean the calendar for the future animes, yes I have quite a lot to be honest and I'm ready to do it.
As for the calendar for animes coming out this week (and next week, etc) and their schedules can be confirmed using multiple sources. This idea came about after a site I check out frequently called free-tv-video-online.me, that has this setup, where, you have Monday to Sunday and below each day are the names of the animes that air on that date and you can click the name of the series and it will send you to the page, where you can find more info about it as well as the links for the stream, we don't need to go that far, since we don't really give stream links here.

|So the blocks are now for the most popluar shows overall, instead of the shows that I tend to like now?|
All the shows you follow will now be four times the size of a normal block and any popular shows will be two times the block size. This feature is to encourage more people to use the follow option on series they like.
The picture blocks have never had a algorithm to determine what shows you'll tend to like, they show up as the shows are released and captured onto the Pulse system. The only change to the front page is just an aesthetic change based on what is popular and more importantly, what shows you follow.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:43 AM
Again, I highly encourage everybody to follow shows that they like. The auto-promoted blocks aren't nearly as meaningful in comparison to the stuff you follow. To get rid of the auto-promoted blocks, all you have to do is follow more shows.
