Screenshot from about 8:30 AM EDT, Tuesday.

Comment from approximately 19 hours earlier.

Simulcast time and day info clearly displayed.



I'm not trying to pick on the user who asked in this particular case. They aren't the only person I've seen do this. It's just one example of comments I see from time to time, and not all that infrequently -- it's not just when an episode has been delayed, or when a season is over and a user isn't aware of that.

I'm curious. Why do people do this? Is there any way to write comments that appear on the show page, without actually going to this page where the simulcast day and time is displayed?

Do people just not bother to look anywhere at all, including the informational page they are on, before sending out a personal request for info?

If you add "/comments" to any show or episode URL it lets you see the comments and apparently does not show the Simulcast info:



I've never used it personally for a show's comment page, but I have used it for specific episode urls if I'm just interested in seeing if there's been any discussion.

Edit: I've found if you go directly to any URL except the root or /videos address it won't display simulcast info, even after you click the link to the videos page.

Thank you!

I often use the "/comments" with episode URLs, but not with the show page (or at least not often enough that I noticed that when you do that, you lose the simulcast info--weird!)
