        Very good suggestion.

        I currently check these feedback discussions several times per month, to learn when/what developments are on the horizon. I'm especially interested in the idea, with over 900 votes, known here as "Match users with similar taste".

        Sadly, since I never see any new info regarding that idea, I may eventually only check in several times a year. After that, if more time passes, the next stage would be for me to no longer check in at all. Perhaps the final stage would be for me to not even participate in Letterboxd at all.

          I'm surprised the Letterboxd team doesn't consider this to be its absolute highest priority. If a feature like this did exist, it would embody the primary selling proposition for Letterboxd, as a whole. It would amplify the value, and meaning, of almost every other Letterboxd feature.

          In addition to the OKCupid reference mentioned by Jackson Hart on Dec. 2, 2014, let me cite LibraryThing. LibraryThing is an independent website, like Letterboxd, focusing on books rather than movies. LibraryThing offers a couple of different taste-matching algorithms. So why not hire, on a contract basis, some LibraryThing programmers and administrators to build a similar feature here for movies, that they did over there for books? Leverage their experience, on an existing website that's much like Letterboxd but doesn't compete for users; since it deals only with books, not movies.
