  1. Nano (cryptocurrency) as a payment method

    Please, accept Nano as a payment method!

    I'd love to become a Pro member, but I don't use and don't want to use PayPal.

    Nano is a cryptocurrency. More info: https://nano.org/

    Nano is way better than Bitcoin, because:
    - It has instant transactions;
    - It has zero fees;
    - And it is infinitely scalable.

    Thanks!

    • Add Ratings from other sources to the film page

      I't would be great to see ratings from other sources like IMDB, TMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, below the Letterboxd ratings,

      • Correct the “more services” feature

        The “more services” feature is great for telling you where you might be able to stream a film. But it is incorrect on so many occasions. For example, it says that Brawl in Cell Block 99 is streaming on showtime anytime. But this is false.

        It’s a great feature in theory if you can get it right.

        • Disallow reviews and ratings from being created until a film is released, be it at a festival, screening, theatrical, or otherwise.

          While you can't stop people who haven't seen a film from rating and reviewing it, films should be "locked" until its first screening, be it at a film festival or a premiere. e.g. a film that isn't released until June should not have any ratings or reviews prior to its release date unless an early screening can be verified.

          • Notify users when a title is removed from Letterboxd

            Letterboxd needs to implement an automated system that can notify users when a film they have watched, logged or added to a list is removed from the website.

            Sometimes, titles are removed from Letterboxd only to be added back, such as the 'Kenzo World' commercial. If I remember correctly, several hundred viewers had logged the ad when it first released on YouTube, including myself. It was only when I downloaded my Letterboxd archive that I noticed the film's URL field in the .csv file was empty, meaning it had probably been removed from Letterboxd at some point and was no…

            • Improve GoWatchIt matching algorithm

              There are a number of titles that letterboxd gets wrong when using the gowatchit service filter option. For instance, navigating to the "Okja" page and clicking "More services" under the "Watch" banner, the page from gowatchit lists the title as "Oka!" which is an entirely different movie. This explains why "Okja" does not show up on the Netflix service filter in letterboxd, even though it is a Netflix original.

              Those names are similar enough, but it also makes some nonsensical errors - "The Human Surge" links to a movie called "The Lovers and the Despot". There are many more examples.

                Thanks for these examples Scott. We’ll try to improve the matching algorithm we use to locate GWI titles. Please feel free to use the Report function on any other films you spot with bad matches.

              • Make World Map more interactive

                When looking at the World Map on my stats page, if I click on a green country it will show me the movies that I've seen from that country.

                If I click on a gray country nothing happens. It would be great if clicking on the gray countries took me to a list of the top movies from that country, so I can start turning them green.

                • Reorder films logged on the same day

                  On the same day, I might watch film x and then film y, in that order. However, if I log film y first, the order in my diary will have them as y and then x, even though I watched x first. I think it would be a convenient feature to be able to reorganise the order of films logged under a given date in the diary view.

                  For example, I have found evidence that I watched a film on a day in 2015 that I forgot to log at the time. There was another film I logged on that…

                    • Show poster, title, and year on hover

                      It's nice to see title and year when hovering over posters, but it'd be nice to have the same functionality on movie titles when they show up alone, like in your activity feed, without having to click through to find out which version or in which year it was made. It'd also be great to get a little user preview when hovering over usernames.

                        • Clean background option

                          Explains itself. It’s really annoying trying to read on a dark background, and specially if you plan to reais for hours. I’m really interested on making an account on the website, as he got all these nice features, but it doesn’t have the simple option to change theme to a clean one (white background black text). Please, letterboxd! Hear us.

                          • Option to like Cast, Crew and Studios

                            the ability to like actor, director, etc. profiles on the site and have those likes appear on our profile likes page would be super awesome and handy. i think it's something to really consider!

                              • TV Miniseries segregation

                                I love that you have mini-series listed on here, as well as short-films. But perhaps have someway of segregating the two in terms of categories? Or perhaps include a mini-series tag to the show, to make it easier to find and log. I, myself, watch plenty of mini-series and while I love logging it into my diary, I wish it were easier to browse for more mini-series in the database, or to look up miniseries I've already watched in my watched "films" tab.

                                  im thinking like facebook memories or timehop it would be nice to have a function where you could see what you logged in your diary or wrote a review for a year ago, two years ago, etc. or even smaller time frames like a week, a month or six months ago. i really wanna know what i was watching last year etc but it’s not practical to scroll through my whole diary.

Then your friends can see if you watching a movie and which time sequence they are.

                                      Sort of to create the inside of a venn diagram between two lists, so I can see the overlap of one list in another list. (Lists have to be personal or liked to show up as filter option)

                                        It would be an amazing idea to add film critics to the website, much like Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. There would be the fan reviews and ratings, but, there would additionally be reviews on Letterboxd from professional film critics.
