can we revisit this?
i think a rotation every day would be cool, regardless of "popularity".
and a section below that of new members would be cool too.
Phase one of notifications support is done (push support in our apps). Next step is to improve the web experience to show an equivalent list and indicator.
so…..how about this?
an internal notification system like FB would be SOOO much better. i get fed up with the email notifications but then if i unsubscribe ill never know if someone mentions me in one of those comments or comments on my question or something.
related to that, also like FB, i think itd be cool if you implemented Mentions into this internal notification system. and when a user is typing a comment on a review/list, if someone types "@phi", "phips" would pop up and then they could click it to mention me and then i could see that in my notification system. but this is secondary to the internal notification system which is crucial.
the Incoming tab is helpful but thats only if people comment on my stuff. everyone basically wants all the email notifications to be internalized on Letterboxd.
Thanks for these examples. Where specifically do you then check for/see the out-of-sync dates?
When a user goes to their Films page and then their Ratings page you see that a particular rating is time stamped with a month and date.
if, let's say, i watched a film tonight Jan 11th and rated it 3 stars and did the above, i'd see the film's poster with 3 stars under it and a Jan 11. but if i tomorrow decided, "ya know what, i think it was actually 4 stars" and upped my Diary entry of the film to 4 stars, the date under the poster in my ratings page would now read Jan 12. Therefore, the rating no longer is in sync with the Jan 11th viewing.
since we'd be editing the Diary entry of Jan 11th, i dont think that the rating time stamp should change....much like how if i go back and change a spelling mistake in a review that review is still said to have been written on the day that i wrote it originally (if i choose to mark the date) and not said to have been written on the day that i updated a spelling error.
preferrably, i think it'd be best if you got rid of the time stamping of the rating all together and got rid of the date below the film poster on users' ratings pages...or at least had a way to opt out of the time stamping, maybe in the Profile section.
it really is bothersome as is. and it seems like a simple fix.
yes. please do this. i dont like this.
can there be a check/un-checkable option (maybe in Profile) to time stamp ratings.
i have a similar issue as this poster. sometimes ill see a film on Monday the 26th but by the time i finish my review and choose a rating its now Tuesday the 27th and the rating will be time stamped as such, throwing on the parity between the viewing and the rating.
also, if i decide to shift a rating up or down a star or two the timestamp changes, messing up the logging of the film and its rating.
please fix. its a little nit-picky but its crucial for some of us.
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.
agreed. the People page should be changed to "random" and "newly joined". this will help people find new people as well as help the newly joined members get some followers.
We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.
In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).
maybe then just implement a way to make reviews private (like Lists) and/or choose to disable comments.
i'd like to be able to restrict who sees my stuff.
the rise of trolls and idiots have made heckling much more of an issue.
please look into this.
this would help prevent people from creating a fake email and joining only to insult someone. by delaying their account activation hopefully it will deter the harassment from occurring. maybe they will get over it in the time that they have to wait.
We support tags for grouping lists into more specific taxonomies. We don’t have any plans to add list grouping (other than via tags) at this time.
any progress on this? i think it'd be a cool way to better keep track of all of our lists
I think it would be great if we could group our own lists together..beyond using tags. Tags are used to help find a list/film/etc. when searching but grouping the lists would be good.
For instance: creating a "folder" (or something) inside the Lists aspect of your profile that you can title anything (ex: Rankings or Favorites etc.) and put individual lists into. That way you could put all your Favorite lists (Favorite Horror, Favorite Comedy, etc.) in one place and all your Rankings lists (Top 15, 2011 Ranked, etc.) into one place. We should be able to name each category folder whatever we want (up to 50 characters or something).
It would make the organization of lists better.
We’re working on better tools in this area, more soon.
yeah, i agree. the user when writing a review or creating a List should be able to select the option to "enable comments". sometimes i want to create a public List but i dont want people to comment on it...
maybe. but then it will turn into Facebook with people posting stupid stuff or images of things...if there was a way to avoid people writing stupid things "I ate a sandwich today and hated it!" then id sorta be down.
I like the idea but let's be careful that we don't turn this into Facebook. The groups should only be film related..if thats possible.
yeah, sorry, thats what i meant..grid view
yup, this is also what i suggested. this is a great idea.
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.
