    • Watchlist: allow sorting/ranking/categorizing

      In the 'films' section of your profile you can order your films by popularity, could it be possible to integrate this function into the 'watchlist'. Tis could be handy for days you have no inspiration on what to watch.?

      • 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.

        • more flexible RSS feed

          I'd quite like to import my reviews onto my blog, with a link to letterboxd. However, it seems that my RSS feed also contains other activity such as adding items to lists.

          If there was a neat way to get a link to more specific RSS feed that didn't have a confusing UX that'd be really helpful.

          For example Flickr has a link on each page to subscribe to update for that page. My photostream's RSS link is for all my photos, but the RSS link on the page for a particular album only contains updates to that album.

          It…

          • Add a table view for the film list, with sortable/filterable columns

            This would allow us to search, filter, and otherwise analyze our data easily. We may also wish to create graphs and lists with this info; while it would be nice if Letterboxd also did that, it would be easier and more flexible if we could get at the raw data. See Goodreads for a decent example of rich tables of user data.

              We’ve completed the first stage of this, by changing the default diary view to a sortable table view. We’d love follow-up feedback on how useful this is, and if/how you’d like to see this view used elsewhere in the site.

            • Allow list owners to sort to a list prior to saving

              I have a list of over 400 films that I'd like to keep sorted. Dragging and dropping is not a feasible method for a list of this size. I'd like to be able to sort the list by name, either manually (e.g. by clicking a 'sort now' button), or automatically (select a default sort order for when the list is displayed).

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

                    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).

                  • 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.…

                      Letterboxd favours original poster releases over DVD covers and artwork from subsequent releases (in most cases). We also favour versions of original posters with credits reduced or removed — such credits do not fare well at the small sizes we display posters at, and we feel in most cases the simpler visual presentation works better.

                      Unfortunately, due to the subjective nature of voting for posters, there isn’t an easy way to enable this to everyone’s satisfaction. But we’re happy for you to report the odd film using the flag icon in order to let us know if a superior poster exists on TMDb, notwithstanding the above caveats.

                      • add filters for "seen" or "on watchlist" on lists

                        I made a list based on a series of reviews on AVclub.com. Some of these films I have already seen and some are on my watchlist. It would be nice to have the option to show only those that I haven't seen yet or am not yet planning to watch

                        • Statistics

                          Letterboxd is really about the pleasure to have a collection for me.
                          So instead of just having a "passive" watched list, the website should be able to give something in return, to make the most of that exhaustively created listing.
                          I'm thinking of creating a "statistics" tabs under your profile, with plenty of details, for which I can provide some ideas below:

                          -number of films (done)
                          -most watched genre
                          -most watched director
                          -most watched actor
                          -average year
                          -most watched year (release)
                          -average rating
                          -combined runtime
                          -average runtime
                          -bar/graph with genres
                          -bar/graph with dates
                          -bar/graph with runtimes

                            It would be very useful to sort and manage ranked lists if it's available in the edit mode the same filter and sort tools we have on a regular list. Or at least the most important: show the ratings and fade the watched.

                            Show the rating: I'm always updating the year's favorites list for instance and sorting films by group of stars so everytime I need to re-open the list in the detail mode to check what's the rating.

                            Fade watched: I like to use negative lists as a to-do list, so a film is erased after watched and is…

                                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.

                                    There are many lists that start with [Watch], FREE, LIVE etc that are advertising dodgy torrent links to random films. They are cluttering up the site. Could you please actively ban these?

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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).

                                        • strengthen it´s social approach

                                          Letterboxd is addictive as crack!. But you dont have clear notifications of a friend´s new reviews or updates.

                                            WeÆll be adding FB and Twitter sharing once the site is public. The best way to get notifications about new reviews is to follow other users and then check your Activity page regularly — it works just like Twitter or Tumblr.
