TVCL in YOUR Language!

We're proud to enable the Google Translate widget on our site, which enables viewers from across the globe to view our site in their native language. To get started, simply click the Select Language button in our sidebar, and pick your language. Google will take care of the rest. We hope this is the first step in implanting a translation service that will translate the page automatically to a user's native language without any clicks needed. For now though, enjoy!

VisualEditor Disabled

VisualEditor has been having significant issues, locking up and taking the whole website down with it. As such, until we can resolve the issues, it has been disabled. We apologise for any inconvenience. Tvchannellists (talk) 10:07, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Note from a second admin here: In reality, VE probably won't be re-enabled. The site runs much faster without it, and seeing as VE barely worked on most pages and when it worked it was screwing up the formatting, it's not worth it. In any case, for a wiki like this with tons of tables and images, the source editor is the only solution. And we're not the only ones that are having problems with VE; it's just the software itself. -MNIJ (talk) 09:12, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
And a clarification from a third admin-- VE will not be re-enabled UNTIL it becomes more stable. Whether that happens next week, next year, or next decade, we don't know. Once it can stay stable and not take down the website, it will return. If you are or you know someone with experience with VE and resolving its problems, let us know.

Canadian stations/markets list

Per the query and posting I was in on a few days ago, I have started a Canadian page like the American (really, that one should be "U.S." but I'm not nitpicking) one, at List of Canadian over-the-air television stations (for whoever does the main page stuff); and I am working on the first 2 markets now, so they won't be red for long! Easttxtv (talk) 23:37, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi! As soon as one market is added (ie there is content on the page) I'll add it to the main page. also, regarding the name of the OTA page, the standard, for whatever reason, has been demonym, instead of country name. I've updated our guidelines page to reflect this. Branch (talk) 00:19, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
Winnipeg, MB has been added. Easttxtv (talk) 01:23, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
Added Canadian to main page. thanks Branch (talk) 01:34, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Admin team changes

Hello TV Channel Lists contributors. With the implementation of the account approval system, the incidences of vandalism have essentially dropped to zero. Alongside this, the removal of VisualEditor removed the main cause of the site going down. These two factors combined have significantly reduced the need for administrative oversight on the site and in light of this, along with admins' time constraints, two of the admins (Mynameisjeff and Scythechariot) have decided to resign from being admins. Both Mynameisjeff and Scythechariot have noted that they will contribute to the site as regular users. Thank you again to all of TVCL's contributors and for sticking with us whilst we brought the spam and vandalism under control. Tvchannellists (talk) 10:34, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

No problem bud. I'll try working on getting more users to the site in the near future. Also, Happy Easter. -MNIJ (talk) 10:40, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Unprotect User Page

Can you unprotect mine and Scy's userpage, please? -MNIJ (talk) 11:28, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Done. Branch (talk) 12:29, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

"Inappropriate usernames, or usernames designed to impersonate existing users, as determined by the site admins"

I don't see the need for this seeing as usernames designed to impersonate existing users are also inappropriate. Also, I think "rollback" sounds better than "moderator" seeing as "moderators" only have rollback so it is misleading. -MNIJ (talk) 13:04, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi! I just added that for clarification, to make sure there was no confusion that usernames like those will be rejected. Branch (talk) 23:53, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Move of new channel listings

Hi Easttxtv. Thanks for your contributions to the site. We don't normally list new or updated channel listings on the TVCL talk page, as such, we've moved the entry to your talk page. Feel free to continue to post the new and revised channel listings there. Thank you again on behalf of the admin team for all your hard work – it's much appreciated.

Merge Me

I have been sick of TVCL. Could you merge my user please? Thanks. Alexandra (talk) 13:39, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Maria-Alexandra. If you are 'sick of' the site, all you need to do is stop visiting the site. Merging your account won't do achieve anything additional to you simply leaving. Tvchannellists (talk) 00:10, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
