    We’ll put some time aside for this in the next couple of weeks.

    TMDb doesn’t offer a gender field for actor records, so we can’t automatically compute this based on that, sadly!

    Are these reviews older than two weeks? We don't show activity in the feed if the watched date is more than a fortnight ago.

    Might be a Chrome bug in that case!

    @Samuel: some people are legitimately able to see films ahead of even these dates, as rought cuts or special screenings, etc. We are considering a 3- or 6-month window prior to these dates as a possibility. Feel free to report nonsense reviews on unreleased films.

    It’s all done, but awaiting approval by FB before we can go live, and no word as yet. We’ll let you know as soon as we have the all clear!

    Hi, this was a bug we thought was remedied, we’ll get it fixed asap! Should only be one entry.

    (Edit: It appears to only exhibit itself in your view of your activity, if someone follows you, they only see one entry.)

    It might also be showing incorrectly on your profile page, but your followers are not seeing this. The bug is caused by filters not being correctly applied in some views of activity.

    The total is shown if you hover over the Ratings tab, but good suggestion to show the total as we do in the Diary, that’s an oversight.

    We do this on the auto-complete field near the top of the Films page. That’s a better control to use if you want instant results, until we have that everywhere.

    This gives us the ability to add more options in future, such as to only show films you have or haven't seen. We couldn't do that with the previous Boolean switch.

    Simply visit the relevant formatted URL for the film in question in any web browser, which forces an import if the film has never been imported before.

    Right, my misunderstanding. We have some good changes planned to make the browsing of films by year/genre/etc much more obvious, yes.

    Thanks Rob, really value this feedback. The key reason for choosing TMDb over IMDb was cost. The former is free, the latter charges a five-figure sum annually for use of its data by other apps. We haven’t ruled out switching, but as a bootstrapped project it wasn’t something we could take on from the outset.

    As an aside, in the short term we plan to add a mechanism to allow instant import from TMDb by entering the ID of a new film. Until that happens feel free to drop a line to hello@letterboxd.com with any TMDb IDs you’d like imported and we’ll do them straight away. Not a perfect solution but hopefully might remove a little of the pain for you.

    That’s a good insight Antonomasia. Please re-report any dupes that still remain, we’re getting better at resolving these.

    @ManInBlack I believe this is a deficiency in the v2.1 API that we use, we can only get back the US release date. When the v3 API launches and we switch to using that, we hopefully will be able to solve the issue.

    @Ivo We've run into that issue too, and the solution is documented here:

    http://help.themoviedb.org/discussions/suggestions/280-incorrect-duplicate-imdb-id-error

    It seems that TMDb sometimes stores multiple IMDb IDs for a film, even though it only shows the latest one added. If you remove / save / replace / save the IMDb ID on the offending film, this clears out any old ones that are causing clashes, allowing you to use the ID on the film you’re trying to add.

    It doesn't solve the wider issue, but at least that will allow you to add films without seeing errors.

    Oh, we hope so too!

    Note you can rate a film directly from its poster, it's in the menu attached to the third icon when hovering on a poster.

    We have different poster rules from TMDb, so we prefer to lock posters once films gain a level of popularity, to ensure long-term consistency.

    We prefer original theatrical posters over DVD covers, which often get upvoted over there. If there is a theatrical release poster on TMDb that’s better than our one, we’ll often change it: please use the Report facility on the film and let us know.

    Either way we can't do it. TMDb always shows English unless there is no English, but we don't know the language of the poster we receive, it's just the highest-rated in any language under the v2.1 API. When we tried auto-updating, half the English posters on the site were replaced with foreign versions.

    When we switch to the v3 API, we get all posters and the language for each, so we can better choose which one to show. Sorry I don't have an ETA for this yet.

    FB auto-posting is supported natively (see Settings → Connections).

    Until we support Twitter natively, you can auto-post from your profile RSS feed by using IFTTT.com (search IFTTT.com’s site for Letterboxd → Twitter recipes).

    @Damiano There's no auto-post feature. Until we have one, use the Share this Film/Review/List option in the right panel of those pages. Clicking the FB or Twitter icons under that option initiates the process to share to those services.

    Apologies. Import takes some time and when the site is under load, it can time out. Please try again in 24 hours, and email us (help@letterboxd.com) if the issue persists. Also, you could try breaking your IMDb export file into smaller chunks which might help.

    We do show the rating in list view, just not in grid view. Will look to add that if we can.
