    Years in Review are created for all years in which you have logged at least 10 films or tagged at least one list with the relevant YIR tags.

    The website end-of-year YIR has been generated annually since our first full year: 2012.

    A combined stats view for all years is in the works!

  3. Perform bulk actions (like mark watched or add to list) for all films in a page/list/collection/etc

    For example currently trying to make a "Movies I saw in 2012" list and have to add each film seperately. Would like to be able to go into my movies and select multiple items at a time.

    Adding all visible films on a page to a list is now available as a Pro feature on our website. The option shows in the sidebar or (on pages without a sidebar) it can be found in the disclosure arrow menu on the “+ Log” button.

  4. Sharing the diary

    Hi!! I'm addicted in your website. Tks for it.

    I think we could share in facebook and twitter when we mark a film for diary.
    Like: <click in "review or log this movie"><save><share that you watched>
    And in facebook or twitter, for example, show "Líli france watched "Life of Pi" in 03/JAN".

    Like the getglue.com

  6. On the actors/movies page, put the TMDB id somewhere

    I have the habit expanding site features with userscripts.

    The problem I have atm is that there is no easy way to figure out the TMDB id for an actor / movie.

    A possibility:

    For an actor:
    <div id="content" data-tmdb-type="person" data-tmdb-id="1229">

    For a movie
    <div id="content" data-tmdb-type="movie" data-tmdb-id="115">

  7. 'Service Unavailable' message

    I find that when searching for certain specific terms, such as genres ('thriller', 'comedy') or names of months ('august', 'june') I often get a message saying "The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

    This happens even when the search term corresponds with the title of a movie. Is this a bug?

  8. Search is too slow

    Search needs an improvement. Sometimes I search for a film and after waiting for a long time, I get a "currently unavailable" error.

  9. Amazon Prime!

    Is there any way you can show me if movies are available for free instant streaming with Amazon Prime? That would be excellent... :)

  10. Fix the API so changes made to TMDb port over quickly and automatically

    I know you're already on top of this to some degree, but I can't stress enough how important it is. Right now the site's biggest problem is that changes made to TMDb never make it to Letterboxd without your intervention. Not just posters, but everything. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to add a director or fix a release date or something on TMDb, only to find that somebody else has already fixed it. And it's not that somebody else fixed it only a few hours previously. I know of many cases where a friend of mine…

    TMDb caches its API content for six hours, which means we can’t update changes any quicker than that. We do have a method to perform a manual import for new additions, and will continue to improve the importing process where we can. We are investigating a bug that’s causing the search index not to update, and some film updates not to come across.

  11. Allow importing directly to the Watched list

    If you just want to import the films you've seen into the Watched category, you currently have to make a filler list to do so. There should be an Import button on the Watched page that doesn't require another list.

  13. I can't view or use the site at all.

    Going to the homepage makes it load momentarily before being replaced with the 2001: A Space Odyssey screenshot error page. I can go to my profile by typing in the URL and view most other pages on the site, but I can't actually do anything like I was able to before; clicking 'seen', 'like', or trying to comment or log/review a film results in an orange bar at the top reading "Internal Server Error". Is this something on my end or are there issues with the site?

  14. Improve the performance of the site in general

    I'm finding the site a little slow to navigate these days. It's not very slow but things can take a while to load once you've clicked on a link. I presume that will only get worse as traffic to the site increases.

    We’re aware of this issue and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible. Part of it is architectural and requires us to re-structure how we calculate activity and popularity. Part of it is due to an issue in our caching framework which we are also working to fix.

  15. Add Netflix integration to the "Films" list in profiles

    It might be nice to see what's available on Netflix/Netflix Instant from your profile page for purposes of re-watching. Looks like it only exists in the Watchlist at present.

  16. Better Search

    I searched for "Best in Show" and came up with 1000 results, the actual movie "Best in Show" didn't appear on page 1 of the results.

  17. Can we make the Netflix import fail report a bit more descriptive.

    I can't tell what the issue is when my Netflix settings don't import. I just get a "try again later" message. But that doesn't tell me if the error was a connection error, a server error, an error because I have too many reviewed movies on Netflix or something... I want to know if this is an error that won't go away.

  18. Auto-post new content to FB & Twitter

    I would love to notify either my FB or my Twitter whenever I add a film to my watched list.

    FB auto-posting is supported natively (see Settings → Connections).

    Until we support Twitter natively, you can auto-post from your profile RSS feed by using IFTTT.com (search IFTTT.com’s site for Letterboxd → Twitter recipes).

  19. 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.
