  1. Watchpanel dissapears beneath footer

    I don´t know if this is the right place to point this out but I just found out that the footer goes on top of the watchpanel on a filmpage.

    • change the text in the Facebook publishing box

      every time I post a review from your site using the Facebook icon in the share menu, when I click post it always says "Your review was not published" but the review is always successfully published. It's not a big issue but it's a little disconcerting that it keeps telling me it wasn't published with it was. Perhaps you can change the text to remove the "not" from a successfully published review?

      • 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.

        • Watchlist: sort in a random order

          The title says it all, yo. I've personally seen at least three people asking for a similar feature. Adding a button that would randomly choose a movie in your watchlist for you.

          What you could do if you were feeling all kinds of fancy is even adding the ability of letting the user input a tag, to help you choose a movie in its watchlist.

          • Suggest movies to friends

            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..."

            • 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.

              • Compare Lists

                Would be great if we could cross two or more lists generating a new list (temporary or not) as a result.

                A greater possibility of films exploration.

                I'm always dying to explore better giant lists like Palm d'or Nominees to see how many films an director has in it. Or another example to intersect this previous list with Criterion collection etc etc.

                  Note that you can already import one list into another (if you’re Pro, you can clone someone’s list and then—by removing everything above the column titles for film entries in the exported file the file—you can import this into another list). This provides a union of two lists, but not an intersection. We’ll have a think about list comparison for intersection.

                • Add the option to block specific lists/reviews

                  Some lists and reviews end up clogging up the activity feed and it would be nice to block just those specific ones instead of filtering out all comments on lists/reviews or all lists/reviews in general.

                  • 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.

                    • Create lists of Actors, Directors 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Watchlist: See Star Rating on Rollover

                          Would be helpful to see the star rating of a movie when you mouse over a film in your Watchlist. Currently, there's no way to see a movie's rating in the Watchlist without actually clicking through to the film's page.

                          • Default rating = most recent date logged

                            I'm slowly adding 20 years' worth of film logs, working backward from the present. This makes the most sense for various reasons (in that it's gonna take me close to a year to finish at my pace of a month per day), but it causes a rating problem.

                            Example: I saw MARGARET a third time and my rating went up from 4 to 4.5. That got logged first. Working back to last September when I saw it the other two times, I accurately logged those ratings as 4. But right now your default rating seems to be whatever the most…

                              We love your dedication! (If you have these in a spreadsheet we could try importing them for you.)

                              I suspect you’re right in terms of which doary entry rating hould be considered the most recent one. We’ll look into it.

                            • Don't delete user's comments when they delete their account

                              I don't think you should be deleted user's comments when they delete/deactivate their account. When the comments are deleted/removed it makes all the comment threads illegible and all messed up because people are responding to a comment that no longer exists.

                                As with other "logging" sites badges would be nice. These badges add a bit of fun and competition to the movie watching experience. These could be badges about the content (Having watched all movies by Hitchcock, Having Watched Every Start Trek Movie...) about the amount (You have watched more then 100 movies this month, You have watched more than 1000 movies in total) or about the topic (Sci-Fi badge for watching at least 25 sci-fi movies and such things). I think it would be nice.

                                • 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.

                                    • Slow to bring across TMDB entries

                                      I'm sorry but I can't find anywhere else to post this.

                                      I added the following to TMDB

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362360-one-pair-of-eyes

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362361-marty-feldman-what-do-i-spy-with-my-little-eye

                                      On the 3rd of this month (5 days ago)

                                      And this

                                      https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/362122-the-cellar-and-the-almond-tree

                                      On the 30th of last month, which is now a week ago.

                                      None of these have materialised on Letterboxd as yet.

                                      • 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!

                                        • Show all stats for directors

                                          Right now Pro users get to see their stats for their 20 most watched/highest rated directors, and that's great, but I feel it would be better to show the entire list of directors that a user has seen and their ranking, (maybe only count a director in that list after the user seen 3 or more of his/her films to prevent overcrowding)
