  1. fix the mobile site

    For the last few months the mobile site won't let me add a film that I've watched. It doesn't work through the button or through the films page. Whenever you click to add nothing happens, not even the old annoying pop up box.

  2. Page numbers for films sorted by decade

    Would like to be able to see what page I'm on, and how many pages there are total.

  3. link different languages to the same movie.

    I don't want to have them in my Likelist in multiple languages, but I somehow have to, to do it right... Also, your statistics are useless, if people split on diefferent versions.

    The community could handle this, I think. I would volunteer! ;-)

    TMDb removes entries from its database that are in different languages. We cannot automatically merge these once they’re in our database, but we can do it manually. Please report any duplicate films to hello@letterboxd.com and we’ll manually merge them, retaining and moving all stats onto the correct, target film.

  4. Make tags more fluid

    Great site--very intricate, wonderful work. I'm wondering if tagging could be made a little more fluid, usable. (I'm kind of blendng/reworking a few previous suggestions I saw; excuse any repeats) Public info (real basic year, genre, etc.) able to be absorbed into your private film database, maybe in tags, so you could manage that stuff w/o painstakingly going back through and laying down new tags yourself.

    If laying down new tags were even possible. When I tried adding some this way, I saw something like 'In order to add tags, you must have DateWatched or a review'. I don't review…

    Thanks for your suggestions. One way you might be able to recreate some of what you mention here is to narrow down the main Films section by using the filters there, and then set the visibility to only show films you’ve seen. This would let you isolate films by decade, year and genre that you’ve seen.

  5. Give more detail in the 'add movie' instructions

    Just write it out step by step. I don't understand what you mean about using that URL format - where do you put that?

  6. Add the ability to view tagged lists in diary order AND grid view simultaneously

    I like to view the movies I've marked with a particular tag in grid view, but I would like to be able to see them in grid view while also seeing them in the order in which I watched them. When I click on "Diary" to see them in my viewed order I am forced to view them in list form, rather than a grid.

  7. Please have a simple link that goes to your "Film Diary"

    The site is gorgeous but it's way too confusing! It took me two minutes to find out where my films were, but there are like 5 pages that have the same function. Please simplify Letterbox. The idea is great but too much!

  9. Better access and layout of film diary page and stats

    A calendar view or a tally of the number of films you have watched this month and year would be great.

  10. Focus search bar on double tap of search tab

    Hi, when searching for something it can be really uncomfortable having to reach all the way up to the search bar, just to go down to the keyboard again. Especially with phones getting bigger.
    I’d love to be able to double tap on the ‘Search’ tab on the bottom bar to put focus on the search bar, allowing me to stay in the keyboard area the whole time.
    The behavior would be:
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when not on Search Page: Open Search page
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when on Search Page: Put focus on the Search bar…

  13. 'More' option fails to load/expand.

    When I click 'more' it loads out ellipses (...) instead of the bio or review I am attempting to read. This happens whether I am logged in or off. The only time 'more' fully loads out is in the older review sections and not on specific pages.

  15. bug fix: add a movie to lists

    I've created a list, and when I've added several movies one after another and add movie input box appears in the middle of the screen rather than at the top of the screen. Movies are partly over it etc.

    Also, when I view my lists the count is stuck at 31 or 81 (not sure if it's partly cut off making it look like 31)

    All this is in Firefox

  16. insert TV shows

    There are already Netflix TV series and other shows on here, why not add them all. Would love to find TV shows to watch and recommend on here. Hope you guys can implement it!

  17. Date when added/watched

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, but is there an easy way to show the date you watched a film ? I am just starting to use the diary function in letterboxd and it would be cool to be able to have an easy way to use the date you added a film to your letterboxd for your diary. At the moment I am clicking on each movie, then on activity, then on my activity for the film and then I can see when i marked the movie on watched, so i can use this…

  19. Have a "for you" section

    So you know how Netflix looks at things you've liked and recommends you titles based on that. You should include something like that here. It may be difficult because you'd have to develop an algorithm, but in the end it'd be worth it.

  20. automatically watched when selecting liked

    when i select that i like a movie it should automatically select it as watched as well. doesn't make sense to select this twice. super easy fix and massive quality of life improvement for every single user.

    We considered this, but ultimately decided (rightly or wrongly) that you could like the “hype” around a film before you watched it. Now that we allow it, it might be a difficult thing to change.
