  1. Fix a bug where the email confirmation was sent twice

    Not a big deal, I just got the "Please validate your new Letterboxd..." email twice.

    Thanks, looks great so far!

      Thanks Patrick,
      At the moment if you re-visit the site but haven’t validated your email yet it will re-send the validation email. This was intended for the case where maybe someone had lost the email etc… but a lot of people have been getting multiple emails so we need to change the way this works. Potentially we may just change it to show a message on the site when revisiting if you haven’t validated yet.

    • Drop Down Seen-Unseen

      I appreciate the effort to streamline the seen-unseen button on lists and actor/director pages, but in the end I'm not sure I understand it. It takes far more time to hover and then click than it does to simply click. A reversion would be more useful.

        As Yekra is no longer around, it should be removed from the services list

        • Save lists and reviews for quick future access.

          Like saving a post in Facebook to private "Saved" space. It would be very effective to save lists and reviews you enjoyed and to also read it in the future with quick and easy access option.

            We already allow you to save “private” lists. DIsable the public setting and save.

            We do not have draft reviews, yet (but in our iOS app you can cancel a review and we save its contents for next time).

          • foreign posters

            figure out a way to stop Letterboxd from using foreign posters (i.e.: languages other than english) for films that aren't from non-english speaking countries. basically, only use a film poster from a country where the movie is produced. like for "rust and bone" use the french poster since its a french film but for "bourne legacy" only use the US poster since its a US film.

              The best form of prevention for now is by voting up the correct poster and voting down the foreign language poster. We’ll improve this as/when we can.

            • fahgeddabouddit

              I find no value here. The last thing that interests me is reading other people's opinions of films. In general the online reaction times are too slow, the dark backgrounds make things hard to read, the interface fails to work well on my tablet, and I'm outta here.

              • Disable likes/comments on certain diary entries

                Would it be possible to add a feature that allows users the opportunity to disable likes/comments on certain reviews?

                Not every diary entry needs these features.

                • add release dates to (new) films

                  maybe it would be possible to show the release date depending on the very country you live in (maybe add location settings to the profile?)

                  • Bug? Reviews not displayed in diary

                    My 4 most recently viewed films are not displaying the "review" icon next to them in Diary mode. I think the problem is that the film is being logged twice: once when I said I viewed it on this date, and then again when I add my review. Perhaps only the first instance (without the review) is being shown in the diary?

                    It would be good if the review link showed up in the diary regardless of when it was logged. It's the only clear indicator we have of films we have or have yet to review.

                    In fact, it…

                      You can add a review to a log entry after the fact. If you go back to an existing log entry, you’ll see an option to Edit it/Add a review. This is the preferred method for sure.

                      To fix your diary, you could copy your reviews onto the original log entries and then delete the duplicate entries.

                      In future we might ask you if you wish to add a review to an existing diary entry at the time you submit it, I guess this would help?

                    • Respond to my feedback before my Pro membership expires

                      Two and a half months ago I submitted feedback that has since accrued 45 votes of support, but I have not heard anything in response. Meanwhile, my Pro membership expires in nine days. None of the perks that come with that membership have been of any real value to me; I purchased it merely as way to donate a gratuity to the website. Without any response to my feedback, however, I do not wish to renew my membership. I've been pretty startled by the lack of response, frankly.

                          I'm adding films I've watched today and the reviews appear on the activity stream but not on my profile or in my diary which seems to have froze on yesetrday's activity

                          • Add a "frequently tagged with" section to the cast/crew/details/genre tabs

                            Although it's possible to see all films applied with a particular tag, it'd be really useful to see it the other way around, so you could see which tags are applied the most.

                            The most obvious place to put this is as an extra tab in the cast and crew section, on film pages.

                            If you could add tags in this section without necessarily having to make a review, that'd also boost the number of people applying tags generally, creating more data

                              The existing tags should help a lot. In personal and perhaps sometimes elaborated list it can be useful to filter, westerns action movies, all clint eastwood related stuff etc... The available standard tags should go a long way all ready....

                                • 'Service Unavailable' message

                                  I find that when searching for certain specific terms, such as genres ('thriller', 'comedy') or names of months ('august', 'june') I often get a message saying "The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

                                  This happens even when the search term corresponds with the title of a movie. Is this a bug?

                                    When you are on a film page, you can see "Your friends who have watched [title of movie]". That opens the list of friends with a few columns including the heart. I would love to see their ratings here, as well as a link to their review of this film if they have one. Here is why it is important to have this information here.

                                    The natural flow is to see that someone reviewed or rated a film you haven't seen. You may read their review, and then take a look at the film page. Now you are interested in…
