Summary 0003480: Animetb: create a recalculation tool for the season field
Revision 2020-11-18 04:56 by CDB-Man
Description When the airing date is edited on an anime, users and mods often ignore the field because:
1) they can't figure it out easily in their head
2) they think it's going to automatically update

To help with this, on the anime edit page, there should be a button called "recalculate season" that edits the field for you, based on the new air dates entered, and populated the field.

A note should be added beside the button:
> "Please check that the recalculated season is correct, as the calculation does not consider instances where an anime has non-limited early airings of episode 1, with a delay for the remainder airings. For example, episode 1 was early aired on 19.09.2020 (summer), but the rest of the season airs 1 month later, with episode 1 re-airing on 07.10.2020 (autumn)."

Examples of the 1st airing issue:
https://anidb.net/anime/15342 -- episode 1 aired on 19.09.2020 (summer), but the rest of the episodes aired 1 month later, with episode 1 re-airing on 07.10.2020 (autumn). For this anime, episode 1 was broadly available when it streamed on Abema TV, so it would not count as a "limited airing", hence the airing date set as 19.09.2020 instead of 07.10.2020.

Description The season fields on anime should be updated via a cron job that runs (perhaps every 2nd day on the same schedule as other crons) that looks for animetb creqs which change air dates, and fixes the season fields to be correct.

Users and mods often ignore the field because:
1) they can't figure it out easily in their head
2) they think it's going to automatically update

Alternatively, always recalculate the field when a creq involving the air dates are generated.

The wrinkle with auto-recalculation is if the anime has an early-airing episode 1, that will throw off ant auto-calculated seasons.
