Pre-Populate Episode Title at the "Description" Field When Adding Link

  • Under Consideration
When I click to add a new link for an episode and I choose the season and episode from the dropdown list, the Description field should auto-populate with the appropriate episode name (e.g. "Pilot").

If it's a Megavideo link, it could be auto-populated with "Megavideo" to avoid the thousands of mislabeled links such as "Megavideo [GREAT-QUALITY]" or "Megavideo [100% WORKING]".

The auto-populated field should of course be left editable, so the link contributor can modify it if it's not very appropriate (except maybe in the Megavideo link case above).

Hi Gee, that's a great idea! I think the easiest to set up would be to automatically add the title as the system recognizing the source may be a little tricker, though I think that's something to consider as well.

I'll pass your ideas along to the team so they can consider them for future site updates.

Thanks!

Actually, detecting some of the most popular hosts (Megavideo, YouTube, 56.com, YouKu, etc) would not be that hard to implement. I know it since I have good programming knowledge. In fact, your system does a part of the job already by showing the main domain of every link just below the link title/description and the "direct link".
