  2. Easy way to fix posters

    So many movies have low quality posters, there needs to be an easier way for users to suggest a better poster. I also believe that the original art should be used and not some horrible photoshopped version which I see all the time. Editing out text from a poster messes up the design and makes most of them look awful because they are designed to have that text on there. I also think it is a bit of an insult to some of the amazing poster designers, especially when people mess up with iconic and classic posters by famous designers.…

  3. offer better analytics for ratings

    I'd like to be able to see a numeric breakdown of the ratings i've given, with percentages of the overall ratings. I see the one little graph, but I feel like this option could be better or more precise or developed. It doesn't offer an exact breakdown of how many films have been rated, and which percentage is given to each rating. This could just be a number, but I like graphs and charts as well.

    Websites like rateyourmusic offer the exact number of each rating you've given. I'd just like a better overview of the ratings I have given,…

  4. All films to be added to/removed from Lists more easily

    When opening a film, I would like to see to which lists I have added and I would like to be able to amend (add or remove) which lists it is attached. Currently I have to go in lists and edit it from there.

    From the poster menu, choose Show In Lists from the right-most icon (…). You can alternatively click the Lists count below the poster on the film’s page. This shows all lists the film is in, but you can filter it to show only your lists.

    Note that the only way to remove a film from a list is to edit the list. You can add a film to any list from the poster menu.

  5. Deleting lists?

    I know that this is an actual feature, but as of late I've been unable to delete private and public lists. I made a fake best-of-the-year list and tried to delete it but it just redirects me to the list's page. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

  8. Fix the site so that films can be added again

    I'm on Firefox for Mac v.25.0 (OS 10.6.8). Attempting to add a film immediately results in the dropdown message "There are no films beginning with..." no matter if it's the word "Casablanca" or the letter "A." Maybe when TMDb is down, that's what occurs? No idea. No films are found.

    While we're at it, how about a bug report form, or a user forum, or an updated News section, or something more standard and logical than this suggestion area? There are quite a lot of bugs on the site, and no easy way to record them or to see what…

  9. E-mails

    I like the Letterboxd e-mail system, but I seem to sometimes receive as many as 7-8 e-mails for the exact same thing. In fact, 95% of e-mails I receive from you are duplicates (same minute, same person following, 5 e-mails). I know I am not the only one getting this, so hopefully it is a bug that can be fixed?

  10. "Older" Button Should change

    When you sort movies from oldest->newest, you still need to click the 'Older' button, even though you are trying to advance to newer films!

  11. Simplify Activity Feed

    I watched Raging Bull last night and my feed has FOUR updates: You Rated Raging Bull 5 Stars, You Like Raging Bull, You Watched Raging Bull on August 14th, 2013, You marked Raging Bull as watched. Perhaps this could be consolidated into one?

    Hi, this was a bug we thought was remedied, we’ll get it fixed asap! Should only be one entry.

    (Edit: It appears to only exhibit itself in your view of your activity, if someone follows you, they only see one entry.)

  12. Comment/Review Box Enhancements

    I think it'd be wise to "enhance" the comment and review boxes/fields.

    Many people on this site have no idea how to utilize the html. to solve this you could, much like Microsoft Word, put those supported html functions in some sort of toolbar in the comment and review fields. there'd be buttons for Bold (B), Italics (I), Blockquote (""), Link (this seems to give people the most trouble), etc.

    Also, I think it'd be cool to include a spoiler tag. Much like a link, you could write what you want to say (equivalent of the www address for a…

    For instance how can I get my friends of Facebook who are not on Letterboxd to follow any reviews of lists I post on Letterboxd?

    For now, they could follow your account via the RSS feed on your profile page (look for the RSS logo and copy the feed URL and send it to them).

    Very soon you’ll be able to auto-publish new reviews and lists to Facebook.

  14. Generate a 2013 Year In Review page

    It would be very nice to be able to see how the current year is shaping up, see my current trends in movies, etc. it wouldn't need to be continuously updated -- maybe even just once a week would be probably good enough.

  15. Give the option to invite several friends at once via email

    It would be faster and easier to invite friends if we can send an invite to several emails at once (as opposed to sending an invite to each individual email, one at a time).

  16. Social media, social media, social media

    - Let users post all their actions to selected social media. For instance:
    Twitter
    [v] ratings
    [ ] reviews
    [v] likes
    [v] seen

    <Another social media>
    [ ] option 0

    - Let users log in with social media
    - Let users do site actions like rate, like and mark films as seen directly from social media sites via apps.

  17. Keep track of new film releases

    I wunder if it is possible to keep track of new film releases. Now if we want to add a film to our watchlist. We have to search for it or stumble on it. I'm looking for a way to see upcomming films sorted bij release date so we could add them to our watchlist. I've seen a great example here: http://www.taphive.com/todomovies/ , but my hart lays and stays with letterboxd.

  18. Cover Photo

    Wouldn't it be great if our profiles could have cover photos?

    This would not be unlike Facebook, Twitter, or even the film pages themselves; every user would now just have the ability to post their own (hopefully film related) images for their covers. Heck, even if it's not film related, perhaps it would allow for some further insight into the mind of each user, and would provide an overall more enjoyable experience as clicking through reviews, likes, etc.

    Just a thought!

    Cover photos are available for Patron members of the site. They are taken from the backdrop of the first of your four favorites (if available). Let us know if you’re a Patron and your favorite film is missing an image.

  19. Importer from IMDB does not work

    Hi,
    Using IE 10,
    i export at IMDB, which gives me ratings.csv
    Importing it will allow me to point at the file,
    next nothing happens: no sign whatever Letterboxd read the file ratings.csv.

  20. Disable likes/comments on certain diary entries

    Would it be possible to add a feature that allows users the opportunity to disable likes/comments on certain reviews?

    Not every diary entry needs these features.
