  1. Start tracking people who are creating multiple accounts

    I've seen evidence that some members are creating sock puppet accounts to 'like' their reviews and bump up their popularity and profile on the site. Is this practice going to be traced?

    • import imdb user description (comments) as notes to letterboxd

      When I import a csv from imdb, all data comes along, including my descriptions ("short reviews"), as I can see after the matching process ends, but they are not saved on the lists, for some reason. Is it any way to make that happen?
      Thanks, this is a very promising site.

      • Mobile site (iOS add to home shortcut)

        Hello,

        First of all, I love mobile web site of letter box.

        My only wish is that you optimize it for iOS, so when I click to add to homescreen shortcut, that it starts treating it as app and opens it in a new window (like app) and not safari.

        Example of what I'm talking about is m.tvprofile.net. If you add it to homescreen shortcut, it will treat it like an app.

        Hope you understood what I was talking about.

        Regards,
        Aldy

          The web app mode is for sites which implement their own “Back” button, which we do not at present. Without this mechanism, it would be frustrating trying to use the site with no way to jump back a screen. It’s generally for apps that mimic the native app experience.

        • Default view of lists...

          Could ( or should, I suppose ) the default view of any lists include notes made about individual items within the list? At the moment when you click on a list you only see the films and must click on a symbol (the same one used for reviews elsewhere on the site ) to see any notes relating to the list. I think it would be nice to read the list as a whole - The intro text, each film and the attached notes.

          • one time lists import

            I understand that IMDB etc list importing is a pro feature, and that makes sense, to a point. However, it is the fastest way for a new user to become a fully integrated user in the shortest amount of time. I think it would make more sense to use a model wherein you could import a list or set of lists one time, perhaps all within a 24 hour period of signing up, without requiring a pro membership, and any additional lists after then would need to be done through pro? I've got well over a thousand films on IMDB,…

            • create a filter that allows users to hide rated films

              Add an option similar to the 'Hide Watched Films" feature but for films you have already rated. That way you can see what you've marked as watched but forgot to rate.

              • Import from IMDb with RSS

                I was thinking, correct me if I am mistaken, that an automatic import feature connect with the IMDb RSS would be nice. If it is allowed of course.

                Something like this:
                IMDb offer a RSS for movies you have rated. This feed has both the movie title and the rating included. What if there was a place in the Letterboxd user account where you could paste this IMDb RSS feed link, and it would automatically import the newest additions when?

                  • Sorting option 2: Unique star distributions. Films that divide the most (and vice versa).

                    I've often thought how wonderful it would be to especially search for controversial films by programming an option to search for flicks that have the most widely distributed star ratings.

                    • Year In Review

                      I would love to have stats pertaining to cinematographers, writers and composers whose works I've seen and listened for the past one year, hence making my "Year In Review" a much more comprehensive statistical overview.

                      • Give info about updates

                        I know that you currently have the "News" tab at the bottom of the site that provides news about some updates, like when LB Pro was introduced. however, there are also times when you do mini updates and they don't make it to the "News" section.

                        I think it'd be cool for the LB crew to write a tiny blurb on the homepage whenever an update is made with the date of the update and a short description of what you updated. sometimes i don't notice the updates...id like to know them though.

                        • better handling of short films and not yet released films

                          Most Director or Actor pages show "You've Watched 33%" info, but often the titles on the page will be for short films or movies yet to be released. Often, it's for movies that are only rumored.(best example is Zombieland 2).

                          Can filtering be put in place so short films and not-yet-released titles can be excluded or hidden?

                                They’ve changed their export format — please ensure that the ratings column in your export file has a column title of “Rating10” and our importer should then pick these up. (We’ll get this fixed at our end soon.)

                              • Convert Letterboxd CSVs to IMDb format

                                I need my watchlist in IMDb format for this service (https://www.werstreamt.es/) to check where the movies are available.
                                I didn't find a way to convert it, so could you provide a tool for that? Because nearly every site uses the IMDb list format.

                                Another possibility would be that the "Service" filter supports other countries besides the US. Amazon Prime and Netflix Germany in my case.

                                • Use "trailer" video instead of first video from TMDB

                                  On TMDB there are different typs for videos you can mark them as Trailer, Teaser, Clip, Featurret. And this should be the priority order if there are several youtube videos.
                                  Currently it seems to be random which vidoe will get displayed on letterboxd. See for example http://letterboxd.com/film/oldboy-2013/ currently you get a featurret if you hit play trailer even while there is a trailer on TMDB see:

                                  • Add official lists (e.g., Academy Award winners, Criterion Collection)

                                    So iCheckMovies has this set of "Official Lists" (https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/?tags=user:icheckmovies). I think it would be really cool to have this feature on Letterboxd so we can track progress on these lists, as well! Thanks!

                                    • Printer-friendly watchlist

                                      I would like to be able to take my watchlist to the video store. Is there a way that you could create an import feature so the watchlist could be made into a list (without images) for printing in Word.

                                      • Make the year a film came out stable.

                                        Is there a way to keep the years films were released stable? Every other time I come on Letterboxd there's a movie from another decade that's now listed as having a '2013' release date. Why?

                                        • Background Images on Profiles

                                          There should be an image on the background of everyone's profile of their favorite film, similar to the images in each Pro/Patron's Year in Review page or on the pages for the individual films.
