    We’ll have a think about how a "firehose" of recent reviews might work… :)

    One thought occurs, and it’s a usability issue we’ll need to address: if you click the ★ icon to rate the film, which opens the rating control, and you select a rating for a film, it’s possible to then swipe to the next film without "saving" that rating using the checkmark icon. For now, you need to tap the checkmark icon to save the rating on each film.

    We have a plan to improve this so that rating control is always live.

    This page here lists your activity for Dawn of the Dead (2004) and is showing no activity: http://letterboxd.com/kevinbro/film/dawn-of-the-dead-2004/activity/

    So this means that there was likely an issue with the ratings being stored from the carousel view, we’ll see if we can recreate that here. Thanks again for reporting.

    Kevin, you can restart that process from the "Search" tab. There are options to drill into popular and highest-rated films there (and others), and once you get to the film list, there’s a carousel icon to enter the full-screen view.

    We’ll take a look and see if we can figure out why those previous ratings didn't take.

    Yes, it’s definitely more obvious when the numbers are very low. And as films with low numbers effectively receive the average rating for the site, if you’re looking at a director whose films are all rated poorly, then all of their popular films will appear below all of their unknown/unrated films in the ranked list. Thanks for following up. We’ll keep in mind.

    A couple of things to note: weighted average is calculated every six hours, so adding a new rating to a film won’t necessarily change the weighted average for that film until it’s recalculated.

    The more ratings a film receives, the more we weight the average towards the true mean value of those ratings. We feel it’s incorrect for a film with a single 5-star rating to rank ahead of a film with 99 5-star ratings and a 4-star rating, which is what would happen without our weighted algorithm.

    The highest-rated film appears to be correct now, it’s showing “The Thing”. Average ratings are calculated using a weighted rating system, so do not show the “true mean rating” if only a handful of members have rated the film.

    Could you please provide examples of how to recreate this issue, including the URL of the page you visited and whether the problem manifested itself immediately (or what you did to cause it to happen). Thanks!

    Can I Stream It (and other API partners) aren’t able to on-share their NF availability data from what we can tell.

    We have lots of other priorities ahead of this one, so nothing to report on this front right now.

    @Ben You can import content as long as the column headers match those in our documentation. We'll happily refund your Pro fee if the import doesn’t do what you want, but have a read here first to see what columns we support: http://letterboxd.com/about/importing/

    You'll want to import ratings into your account (as opposed to a list, or your Watchlist), so you should start here (once you’ve upgraded): http://letterboxd.com/import/

    For Pro members, we have an importer detailed here: http://letterboxd.com/about/importing/

    If Flixster provides a way to export your data, you can probably reformat it to work with this format.

    Thanks for your feedback and ideas around recommendations and taste matching. We've been focused on site performance for the past several months, and on readying API/apps. These pieces of work are next in line. Letterboxd is a bootstrapped business, not a funded enterprise, but we're putting every second into it that we're able to.

    This is still in our future plans, but a note to Elbon: you can easily move an item from the end of a list to the start by clicking its item number on the Edit page (when these are visible) and changing it to a 1. The item you change will be moved to the #1 position and the rest of the list is shifted one position down.

    Robb, right at the bottom of the confirmation screen before you complete the Import, you should see a checkbox marked “Import Ratings”. Uncheck this to prevent the ratings from being imported.

    Update: it appears we don’t offer this for List Imports, only Diary imports. In which case which we fix that, the quickest way around this will be to open your list in a CSV editor like Excel and remove the Ratings column completely, then try reimporting.

    We hit a snag on the first attempt to roll a Medium style control into the editing fields, but will be getting back to it soon!

    @Todd Once you’re in a decade, you can click the year to filter just by that year, and sort by release date: http://letterboxd.com/films/year/2013/by/release-earliest/

    There is a sliding scale applied, the newer the review, the more its activity counts towards getting it onto this list. Are you finding they don't turn over fast enough for your liking?

    Hi Greg, popularity is a metric based on several things, including rating, number of people who’ve watched, logged and liked a film and also how many watchlists it’s in.

    Highest rated is coming, but it needs to be correctly weighted to prevent films with a handful of five-star ratings from skewing the result, so it’s not as straightforward as the other sort order options.
