I have been trying to add links to the site for a while now (mainly beavis and butthead episodes, as well as the movie - since i'm a big fan). I have tried with no avail. I either add a link and nothing appears, the add link form doesn't work or something else. Bearing in mind my links are non-spammy, from a site with NO ads or malicious content, and the site is also 100% independant for me.

Also, ALL the Beavis and Butthead episodes on your site (of which there are maybe only a fraction of the total) are completely and utterly listed in the wrong seasons.

Also, I am having site errors when I am trying to watch an episode.

I was reccomended to the site by a friend. Overall I am NOT impressed and shall NOT return. It probably means nothing to you and you most likely don't care and are thinking I'm a prick. However, it's the principle that counts I guess.

Farewell.

I am sorry you have found problems with the sidereel site however if you would like to send a link to your site I am sure someone will look into your problem. Also some firefox addons that block popups etc may affect the adding of your links.
If you like you could send me a sample of the links you are trying to add and I will look into it for you.

Hi there, if you would like to try adding again, if the site were marked as spam, you would get an error message as opposed to it not adding. If it were a banned site, you would get the message 'Invalid Unaddable Link' as soon as you clicked the submit button, and if for some reason the site weren't recognized by SideReel as a proper url, you would see the message 'Invalid Generic Link.'

When instead the link form isn't working for you, that sounds like a browser conversion issue.

The latest versions of Firefox and Safari work best with SideReel, and you need to make sure javascript is enabled. If you're thanked for your submission after you successfully use the link form, then that means the link has been added, but it may take a few minutes to show up.

I hope that helps if you'd like to give it another try!

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your concerns about the B&B page. I agree that it wasn't very nice. SideReel is member-edited, and as such, sometimes member confusion leads to some wrong information being added and displayed. Unlike currently popular television and movies, the older ones like B&B aren't at the forefront of members' minds to be repaired. It's nice that you've taken such an interest in it, and I look forward to seeing your continued contributions.

In this particular case, I think the confusion was intensified by information from the DVDs being added to the television page. To correct that, I've created a separate page for the DVD episodes,which have multiple shows in a single episode, and do not match the airing order (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beavis_a.... That new page can be found here: http://www.sidereel.com/Beavis_and_Bu.... Obviously it will need someone to take up the banner and add the episode information as shown on Wikipedia.

As for the originally aired television program episodes, the page for those, located here: http://www.sidereel.com/Beavis_and_Bu... is being updated with the title for each episode of all 7 seasons. This information can be found here: http://www.tv.com/beavis-and-butt-hea... on TV.com, if you would like to further add the synopsis and airing dates to each one. This can be done by clicking "edit details".

If you get stuck, one of our moderators will be glad to help you, or you can send me a message personally.

Thanks again
