Sidereel helps me track when new episodes of my tracked show will be on.

It would be helpful to know when Sidereel might be back at full strength.

We're working on it now.

Ideally I'd love to have the user login functionality and tracker back by the week of May 25th, but it is outrageously complicated to untangle the old system and replicate it in the new system.

We're working with the data now and there are over 600 MILLION watch events in the data, and users could log in with an email address, a Facebook account, a Twitter account or all three (and some people did use all three) not to mention reviews, ratings, lists, profiles and everything else associated with the community so we're being extra cautious as we port everything over.

Thanks for your patience.

Who's smart idea was it to take Sidereel down when you didn't even have some type of beta/prototype version ready for use? Nice way to go and lose users. The smart idea would have been to keep old sidereel going whilst new one was being worked on. Even if you shut down people asking for new shows to be added, this would have kept people happy and able for tracking their shows.

This is a valid question. I am a web developer and we do exactly that when we are redesigning sites. We have a development server and a copy of the data. That way, we can do all sorts of experiments on the design and even the data if necessary, without compromising the original site.
