    Doug -

    Would it help if we all started to insert the Episode number, like you are doing now? Would that make the index easier?

    It'd be a help saving the time needed to go look it up.

    The thread starting date is now shown, and each section is now sorted by last post date (most recent first), except for the episode discussions which are sorted by season/episode first.

    I feel the urge to go through and find episodes without threads so that one can be started with the line, "I can't believe no one's started a thread about this yet..."

    That's not necessarily the case -- I haven't indexed everything yet, and from glancing through the list of un-reviewed threads, there's a lot of missing episodes discussed that had various variations in spelling in the thread title which didn't get caught by some of the searches I did to try to fully index many of the series. I've reviewed only about 40% of the threads in the forum so far.

    It looks like a minor manual correction needs to be made to one of the entries under Gilmore Girls. The thread for episode 5x04 originally incorrectly listed the episodes as 2x04. A moderator has corrected the title, but it is still being indexed in this thread as S02E04.

    Thanks Jonathan; it's fixed and will appear correctly when everything's reposted in a few minutes.

    This index is becoming somewhat unwieldy. It might soon be time to prune some of it for the purposes of this thread since it's so large.

    I've create a web page that lets you create a customized index just of the shows you're interested in:

    http://www.2150.com/tcforum/nowplaying.asp

    Add all the shows you're interested in regularly and you'll get a URL which you can bookmark and return to in the future. You can also view individual show indexes without interfering with your customized list.

    If you have any suggestions for this, please let me know.

    For example, a list of shows I created can be seen at: http://www.2150.com/tcforum/nowplay...-17-45-5-31-11-2-109-46-42-30-71-56-27-20-103

    You rock, Doug. As useful as the first post in this thread is, I've been avoiding it lately since my casual-surfing-by-the-couch-PC takes forever to load the thread and render the page.

    This is a great solution. :up: :up: :up:

    Great work. Once you get a chance you may want to replace TVTome with TV.com (I still morn the passing of TVTome).

    Yeah, I know... I hate tv.com; I'll probably dump it entirely and fix up all the IMDB references instead of finding the proper tv.com URL's for everything. epguides.com ultimately links to tv.com anyway.

    Just had to drop a not to say thank you for managing this thread.
    I don't know why, but I've always had a hard time getting the search function at TCF to find what I'm looking for. This thread makes it a snap to find threads for shows I'm a few days or weeks behind on watching. Great resource.
    Thanks for the time and work you've spent on this. I'll check out the web page you linked - sounds like it will make things even easier. :up::up::up:

    Wow, 13 months. I can't believe I've been doing it this long. It doesn't feel like it at all.
