even if the site was running quickly, there are too many steps and too many separate pages for each episode, which makes the whole process ridiculously slow


That's the reason why I stopped to contribute on this website two month ago.... It seems like the problems are still there :roll:

I don't know if this was an issue in V1, but the current interface doesn't let you change episode images after they've been posted.
And while it will let you replace series actor images and show the new ones on the website, it seems like the first ones posted are always retrieved via scraping (at least for KODI), thus making any corrections/improvements pretty worthless.

I also liked the V1 interface better.

It takes some time (a few days) till the new Images appear on the main site too. Kodi only scraps the first pics. When you update a Picture from an Actor you can see the latest Image with another / sign before the jpg adress. For Example: https://www.thetvdb.com/banners/actors//351959.jpg (in that Case it´s the same pic)

I really miss V1. Usually I can adapt to a new layout of a site, but V2 is so much harder to use. There's large images you have to scroll by, more clicking before you reach functions, search function finds everything except what I'm looking for. I used to contribute missing episodes but I'm avoiding it nowdays since the site feels design-bloated and un-userfriendly.

I'd vote to switch back to V1 if it's possible. Sorry guys, but a user friendly site bets nice/modern design any day.
