I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Recommendations

    I think "recommendation" will be a killer feature of the site, even if it doesn't approach the philosophy behind letterboxd (being a social site).
    Moreover now that you are at the beta stage, meaning fewer users, less probability of "friends", the recommendation of a movie based on my most liked movies or the highest rating, it'll be a great way of discovering new movies.
    I know that technically it will very challenging or maybe you have even think about it.

  2. Match (and compare) members with similar taste

    Add a match button to every profile so you can check immediately if somebody has the same taste as you.

    You can use the like and/or rating of a movie to produce a list of similar movies/similar profile or a similar %.

  3. Private accounts (and/or private Reviews, Diary Entries and Ratings)

    I'd like the option if keeping my account private, like how Twitter handles private accounts.

    We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.

    In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).

  4. Follow/Subscribe to a List, Actor, Director, Studio or Tag

    Besides liking a list, I think it would be nice if you can follow a list. Some lists will change or grow over time and it would be nice if people get a notification in their activity of it when they choose to follow a list.

  5. Suggest/recommend a movie to a friend

    I imagine some kind of inbox or notification system where you can receive suggests from your friends. The film menu you see on mouse over can get an extra option "Suggest to friend..."

  6. Add groups/clubs that users can join (and tag members when watching films together, etc)

    Enable users to create groups they can join, such as "Filmspotting fans," "365 Movies in 365 Days" or groups by location, etc. sort of like Facebook groups.

  7. Expand Block User

    Block user needs to block everything. I don't want to see said person's reviews or anything they have to add to the site. Certain people think this website is their personal blog.

  8. Collaborate on a list or watchlist

    Allow a list being 'open' which then users can follow a list and add films to it. This will result in much more list activity and complete film lists.

    Take for example http://letterboxd.com/pablos/list/special-powers/. I can easily add 10 more movies without any effort to make the list more complete.

    Optional: to demotivate abuse, submitted films must be allowed by the list owner before being added.

  9. Add Favorite Actors/Directors on Profile page

    The ability to list one's favorite films is great, especially when sharing preferences with friends; the opportunity to list favorite actors would be just as convenient. Adding a "favorite actors" category to a users profile page would be a fairly simple change that could really add a lot of personality to each account.

  10. Create lists of Cast, Crew and Studios

    I often find that I want to list things other than films. It would be great if I could create a list of, for example, the Best Directors. Or list my Favourite Japanese Actresses. Or make a list of popular Animation Studios.

  11. Allow users to upload a profile picture without Twitter or Gravatar

    Please allow users the option to upload an avatar/profile picture without having to connect a Twitter (I don't have a Twitter, for example) or create a Gravatar account. Uploading profile photos directly to an account is a simple feature that most all other social media platforms allow!

  12. New System for Handling Films Marked as Adult

    Recently, a lot of sexploitation and other classic exploitation and cult films have been removed from Letterboxd because someone on TMDB has been marking them as Adult. I think that the process of importing titles needs to be rethought, because it is drastically affecting my abilities to keep track of my lists and reviews, and it really hurts to see titles disappear after I have put effort into writing reviews and managing lists.

    Something really needs to be done about this, because this has continued to be an issue since I first started using the site, and so far there…

    Let’s do this: can someone in this thread compile a list of “important/historically significant” adult films that should be on LB. Then we can see about adding an exceptions list to our importer that uses this list.

  14. Trakt.tv integration

    Pull our movie viewing history from Trakt into Letterboxd. Maybe also sync our ratings and/or reviews between the services...

  15. Bulk tag editing and other enhancements

    After obsessively adding/sorting/erasing/rewriting tags, I had a few suggestions I thought might improve their general function. I'm aware that some of these ideas might be impossibly complicated to implement, so this is more of a dream wish list:

    - Tag Editing: Rather than only create or delete tags, enable an editing function. It'd make things easier for correcting spelling errors or reclassifying tags that have been used hundreds of times.

    - Tag Folders: Allow users to subdivide tags into separate groups if they see fit. For example, I might discretely classify certain tags as 'genre', 'mood', 'actors', or 'miscellaneous', retaining…

  16. XBMC Plugin

    I'd love for letterboxd to have an xbmc plugin (www.xbmc.org) which would allow to import your movie collection as well as collect seen/unseen data automatically. The option to rate a movie aftter watching it could be added too! Take a look at www.trakt.tv they have such a plugin and i think it would be awesome if letterboxd had something similar! Thanks
    PS I`m typing this from my couch, in font of my win7/xbmc htpc powered home theater ;)

  17. Plex integration

    When you watch a movie in Plex it marks it as watched here and at the end, it gives you an option to review/rate it which shows up here and that you can toggle on or off.

    Just a thought, but not sure whether it's possible or not. Seems likely and it'd certainly urge me to permanently use the service.

    Stunning work so far! Keep it up.

  18. Watchlist: allow sorting/ranking/categorizing and notes

    In the 'films' section of your profile you can order your films by popularity, could it be possible to integrate this function into the 'watchlist'. Tis could be handy for days you have no inspiration on what to watch.?

  19. add an option to have tied films on ranked lists, with both having the same rank number.

    For example, you could have
    1. Citizen Kane
    2. The Godfather
    2. The Godfather Part II
    3. Blade Runner

    This shows that the two are considered to be equal on the list and doesn't mess up the numbering for the rest of the list.

  20. Internal Notification System, rather than emails

    I think some sort of internal notification system alerting you to when someone comments on or likes a review of yours would be much preferred to getting emails. This way I won't have to check my emails to review letterboxd activity.

    Also, similar to this idea, allow me to follow my favorite people - meaning anytime one of my favorites logs another movie I am notified by the above mentioned system.
