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?6 votes
We’re investigating this, thanks.
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.6 votes
Seems like something we could easily add as an option. We’ll take a look.
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.
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.
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.6 votes
We’re working on ways to improve the disconnect between list views. Thanks for the feedback.
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, and while I am grateful for the improvements this site makes over the functionality of that one, and eager to make ready use of said functionality here, I am only likely to import from other sites once, when I first begin to use this one, which is far sooner than I'm willing to commit to paying for any service. Until it has all of my movies in it in the first place, it would be difficult for me to see it working well enough to decide whether to support the paid version or not.

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.6 votes
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?6 votes
Sounds good, we’ll take a look as a future enhancement.
Can you add importing movies from MAL to this site? You can use the dates you listed.6 votes
If MAL has an export formtat we can look at supporting it. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.6 votes
We’ll think about that. We current produce a “Most Divisive” list using this technique at the end of each year (see: http://letterboxd.com/2015/ for example).
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.6 votes
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.6 votes
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?6 votes
Make an easier and up front way to view a users top rated movies5 votes
This view is available: http://letterboxd.com/matthew/films/ratings/by/rating/ however it’s not visbile on or directly from a user’s profile page. We are thinking about giving users more flexibility and control over their profile page, so this will factor into that discussion.
I want to migrate from the hell that is the new imdb,but my ratings does not get imported here,which is very important to me.. I exported the imdb csv but import does not ask if i want my ratings.
Please advise5 votes
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.)
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.5 votes
We don’t have any immediate plans to convert our format, however this should be a reasonably straightforward process with an app like Excel.
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:
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!5 votes
There is a large time requirement to maintaining such a group of lists, particularly ones that change regularly. We like the idea, but don’t have the resources to manage it at present.
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.5 votes
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?5 votes
These data changes are occurring at TMDb. We will review what we can do to prevent this incorrect information being imported.
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.5 votes
That has been mentioned at HQ as a possibility.
- Don't see your idea?
