  1. Add WATCHLIST to header

    I use Letterboxd when I'm in the mood for a movie and nothing comes to mind, and yet it doesn't have an easy way to reach my Watchlist from the homepage. It's buried in two drop-downs when it should have a proeminent spot.

  2. For sharing a list URL, specify list view or grid view explicitly

    There's the short URL at the bottom of the page, and you can also, apparently, share the page URL directly. I only realised that while writing this suggestion.

    Could you put a note near the short URL to say that the full URL is also an option (or even show the URL there), or make separate short URLs for list and grid views?

    I'm actually interested in option 1 than 2, I think that clear human-readable URLs are a better idea. I'd like to clearly see:

    Links for sharing:

    http://boxd.it/rmIE

    (PS: Maybe a separate idea, but a view with…

  3. Make the form timeout longer

    My way of web browsing is opening up a ton of tabs and then working through them. I often find that the underlying form that handles reviewing/voting etc has timed out when I submit it, which means I lose my work and have to reload the page. (Orange notification box after submit)

    Once you see the CSRF timeout (orange notification), you shouldn’t need to refresh the page. Simply save again and the second time your action should work, as the missing token is regenerated when the notification is shown.

  4. Always visible indicators for state

    I find myself hovering over the posters a lot to see if I've come across them and marked appropriately. Would be nice to have some small, always-visible indication that I'd done *something* with a film.

    Wouldn't have to note the watched/liked state (though I supposed you could simply with colour). Just that you acknowledged the film as something I'd touched.

    Cheers,
    Max

  6. Spell checker

    Could we have an English spell checker. The current one corrects my English-English to the American (i.e. the incorrect) spelling. e.g. humour to humor.

  8. Sort watchlist by year and not just decade

    I like to know what films I want to watch that are being released this year, but when I add films to watch list obviously they are all mixed up and I can only sort by the decade. Would be great to see what is on my watchlist for '2019' for example.

  9. Include "mastodon" support

    You already have a support for twitter and facebook, but some federated social network, like mastodon (https://mastodon.social) would be fine.

  10. Make importing lists/movies from other sites a basic feature

    Seriously, it's a premium feature? There's no way I'm even going to try out the service if I can't import my ratings from imdb or checks from Icheckmovies as views on this site, and I'm not going to buy premium for something that I have no idea what it is. Of all the things to make premium, this one makes the least sense

  11. Add the ability to log a movie that is not yet in the database.

    I often see films early. It is important to me to log the films I see, but in these cases I can’t. TMDB does not allow adding a film before it premieres, so the usual advice of adding the film there doesn’t work.

    What I’d like is to log the fact that I’ve watched an unknown film. Later, when it is in the database, I’d like to update the entry to the actual film. That’s it.

  14. Lack of 'Rated' section on Android

    Every movie on the Letterboxd website has a 'watched', 'liked', 'rated' and 'reviewed' section, but the app doesn't have the 'rated' one, where we can see other people's ratings sorted nicely.

  17. Add Now TV to the service list

    Now TV is pretty big in the UK, and I think it has a better movie selection than the UK Netflix does. I'd love it If you could add it to the list. Thank you.

  18. allow users to "favourite" directors/actors/etc that they want to keep track of

    When a user favourites someone it gets saved in a list of their of their Favourites. That way users can follow up on directors/actors they like and check out their filmography and see if there are other movies in the filmography that they would like to see. Right now users likely click on directors/actors after watching a movie they enjoyed, and they go through the filmography, and their only option is to add movies to their watchlist. But if users are allowed to favourite directors/actors, they can come back a year or 2 later and see what else they have…

  19. Full statistics

    Is it possible to expand most watched categories to the full list? More than the top 20 stars, directors, etc. I would it to have a complete list of most watched stars, directors.

  20. Fix the message you send

    "You haven’t logged any films yet!" is the message I receive in the email, even when I have logged tons of movies.
