it's an extreme deterrent to frequent letterboxd when my activity feed is clogged up with information and discussion (reviews and comments) about films i have yet to see and want to know nothing about. it should be in each users power to avoid film information/spoilers at all cost, and not the rely on the reviewer to mark it as so
offer the option for user's activity feed to automatically spoiler tag reviews, ratings and comments for unseen films. additionally, add an option to make it year specific, e.g. "spoiler films from 2010 onwards" -- this is because spoilers tend to effect new releases most. so to recap, the options would look like this:
"Spoiler options for unseen films-
reviews: yes or no
comments: yes or no
ratings: yes or no
year: *pick year for cut-off point*, e.g. '2011' and onwards
i had this problem before. heres a way a to get around it: when you filter the (lets say....ratings) ratings, click to go to Page 2, then in your url replace the Page '2' with, say, 20, and it will take you to that page, which saves a lot of clicking
any thoughts on this? i hate having to scroll nervously through the activity feed when films i havent seen pop up (i'll be damned if Before Midnight or Gravity get spoiled :( ! )
i'm getting a bunch of plot points ruined for the new Evil Dead film; from reviews but mainly from comments within the reviews as the film title is less visible so the text is easier to glance at.
i think the way to implement this is to simply have one option in your settings 'block films you have yet to see? yes/no'
after this, all reviews and comments (within the reviews) would still show up in the activity feed but with the 'warning: spoilers, do you want to see?' symbol that is currently used (this would block all text and the start ratings)
this is a great idea. i too like going into films as blind as possible and even seeing star ratings in my activity really annoys me, nevermind skimming through plot elements etc.
Scott, exactly; a 'review' is just someone 'commenting'—as in it a lot of the time it isnt a review at all.
the problem is that reviews are the only means of communication on a film page and therefore will INEVITABLY get cluttered with random stuff. what's even more annoying is when these non-reviews are the highest rated on the page, and then sometimes they even get a place on the homepage!
i think some kind of comment/message board section on each film would be a lot more efficient.
Cover photos are available for Patron members of the site. They are taken from the backdrop of the first of your four favorites (if available). Let us know if you’re a Patron and your favorite film is missing an image.
very good idea. they would need to be kept movie related however (imo)
i posted this idea myself a while back. i think a forum is probably needed... those reviews are just people wanting to start conversations.. let them do it in a proper place... but keep the review section for actual reviews
