We’ve completed the first stage of this, by changing the default diary view to a sortable table view. We’d love follow-up feedback on how useful this is, and if/how you’d like to see this view used elsewhere in the site.
LOVE the progress that's been made with this. I utilize the diary all of the time to remember what I have watched over the past week/month/year.
Thank you LetterBoxd!
Technically you can already do this. Just add an href tag and link to their profile. I realize not everyone knows how to do this - though you should if you're on the internet in 2012!!
I like this idea! Not sure how it would implement <i>exactly</i>, but I am all for this.
Actually, it would be very similar to this feedback board. Everyone can rally behind a film of their choice for the year and also have a limited number of votes to get behind their film choice.
Sounds like a fun feature!
Ok, so going back to original comment. The feature does exist, but those notations are only available to the creator of the list and only if they're in edit mode. The notations should be visible to anyone viewing the list.
Just realized that my idea in the comment below already exists.
Nevermind. As you were!
To go along with this, I'd like to add small notations to each film I have in a list that is NOT part of the actual review. For instance, if I make a list of movies with awesome cars I would like to own and I put "Big Trouble in Little China" on the list, I want to note that the film is on the list because of Jack Burton's truck, "The Porkchop Express." But I don't want that information to show up on the actual review I have for the movie.
Just a thought for down the road.
Oh yes. I don't read too well. This would indeed be a good feature. Sorry Aaron.
This already exists. Just click the spoiler check mark when reviewing the film.
Yes, we’d like to do this, but it’s not a quick development job so we’ve not been able to prioritize it to date.
Another idea that goes along with this would be a Rotten Tomatoes style rating at the top of each title page. But this rating would be based off of the people you follow. So if I go to the title page for "Days of Thunder", I can see right at the top of the page that the average score all of the people I follow (and or the entire letterboxd community at large) have given this movie a 3.4 - or something like that.
<b>To be clear:</b> I AM NOT SUGGESTING INTEGRATING ROTTEN TOMATOES FRESH RATING ON THE SITE. Just something similar that uses the scores of people you follow to give a "fresh rating".
Yes! Netflix used to have this ability and would give you a "compatibility rating" with your friends. They took this away and I was devastated. Would be awesome if this came back with Letterboxd.
Great call. We’re investigating some sources for the data to power something like this, and will let you know how we get on.
Not sure I like this idea. There are TONS of places to find out what's playing in your area. Just seems like more clutter and busy work for LetterBoxd to deal with.
I guess I'm kind of worried about load times, screen clutter and pop-ups. I LOVE the look of this site so far and I'm a huge fan of less is more. This feels like more it less to me. But perhaps it could be integrated in a non-invasive way.
Good suggestion. It’s funny, for a long time that field only accepted type input, but the date picker has removed that ability. We’ll take a look at this. (Note, you can click the month/year button to quickly find other months/years.)
NO, I really like the date picker!
