A massive thank you to all of our contributors who took the time to submit to IMDb in January. The top 300 were responsible for a whopping 3,895,379 items over the course of the month, that equates to 125,657 items a day, 5236 an hour and 87 a minute!

A special call-out for the top ten:

  1. Nomissimon10
  2. SkipEastport
  3. matthias_metzger
  4. inespape-1
  5. arshela
  6. cinelamour
  7. formulakaz
  8. apostolis1989
  9. BonaFideBOSS
  10. RitaAbbas

and 54% of all of the entire leaderboard items were contributed by the top 5 alone.

This is my last leaderboard update, thanks very much for taking part and I’ve enjoyed running the leaderboard since its inception. My colleagues Jay and Michelle will continue this for you in the future.

Thanks again for all of your interest and happy contributing!

@Will​  Thanks Will and thanks for running this program. 

I did better than expected, mostly via cast lists and plot keywords for movies I watched at the (virtual) Sundance Film Festival (normally I am big IMDb Answers contributor).

I submitted a few hundred title corrections last month, and since IMDb added copies of all titles as display titles I had to correct those too. I guess that's one way to up my numbers.

(I wonder if the IMDb computer that added all those titles got its own place in the leaderboard.)

Thanks for this update, submissions certainly have increased.  My figure was 19,128 which put me in postion 19.  The last time I reached over 19,000 (July '21) it put me in 14th position! The competition is certainly hotting up & I doubt that I will get much lower than position 19 this year.  But it's fun trying....

Thanks

It looks like there are a lot more people using some sort of automation. I finished top 25 last year while averaging right around what I had this month of 10,000+ edits. Now, I've almost dropped out of the top 50!

@adrian​ I did. I was using a crawler script to download all images for a series from an Arabic database similar to IMDB, and another script to batch upload them on the series' page on IMDB.
But it freezes my pc when the script is running so I stopped using it.
There are tons of data on Arabic/Indian/East-Asian sites that are missing on IMDB so automating the process may be useful to catch up with regional databases!

The problem is that no one checks the accuracy of this data before (or likely after) it is entered.

@adrian​ Me too, but it wasn't the drop that bothered me as much as everything I submitted went into pending for a week or longer and I ended up having to stop contributing for over a week as I couldn't continue due to that so IMDb lost around 1500 contributions I would've made. I've no real problem with people that are doing it right now but my worry with the bots is two fold, one what will happen when bad actors get into the game and flood the site with nonsense, and also is this mass submitting what's clogging up the system, I've never seen as many pending submissions on the site as I have this year so far and I've never had to wait an entire week for the casts of mainstream US shows to be approved before, if this is the case, I hope IMDb is doing everything they can mitigate it.
I always believed one day in the future, IMDb would use it's own bots to fill out everything without need for contributors, so I'm not against bots or any users but if it's knackering or damaging to IMDb then I'm not happy about it.
I hope somebody on staff can put my mind to rest on the situation.

??

Why don't TV & Movie Producers
send IMDb Staff an official, accurate, and complete list
of who's who for latest project
Paid staff can add this
or have some studio secretary add the data directly as a non paid contributor

These Producers must be looking for information here for future projects ??

I'd love to see a ranking exclusively of MOVIE-related submissions, excluding all the other TV/Video/Music Video/Podcast/Video Game crapola. After all, the M in IMDb stands for Movies.

It's obvious that the crazy numbers at the top come from all that non-movie, TV-etc. stuff.

99% of my submissions are FILM-related, so I bet my position would rise significantly in that FILM-only ranking.

No. 90. I doubt I'll be able to keep it up this year (c. Carry On) but it's nice to make it for the first month at least.

Perhaps there needs to be a leaderboard each for scraped entries and manual entries.

No manual contributor can ever compete with (or get recognition for) someone who auto-contributes an average of 18 entries per minute 24/7 for the entire month!

@EvanD71​ i agree with you. The guy who at #1(Nomissimon10) is already guaranteed 2022's top #1-5 contributor for the year 2022. And it's only January. How are we supposed to friendly race? I mean it's something like we're on a running race and he is using a motorbike or jet fighter.

@EvanD71​ This could be a good idea, only issue is that it could be hard to differentiate between someone who is contributing automatically from someone who is doing it manually. And if you would want to find out IMDb staff would either have to spend a lot of time sending out mails and queries finding out who did do it automatically and who did not, and who is to say that my profile is used by a collective uploading on one account to get a joint recognition every month? I personally don't hide the fact that I am doing it with an automation script I have made, and would have no issue being placed on a different leaderboard in the same post. However, it could become more of a hassle for the IMDb staff than what good it does.

I hope I got my point across, and once again underlining that I would have no issue being put in a different leaderboard for people using automation. And I completely understand your questioning of why it is not done, all people that end up on the leaderboard deserve a callout for the great work they all put in. And I am sure there are many people just on the edge of getting recognition that put in a lot of time just like the rest of the 300 top contributors.

@Nomissimon10​ yep, we don't have a problem either. And about noticing who uses automation I think IMDb can detect it by using cookies. Who uses API or they auto-calculate the average contribution per minute.

@Nomissimon10​ I also have no issue with automated contributions. As long as the data gets uploaded, we are achieving the same end result. :-)

Obviously a manual contribution is both tedious and time-consuming (pause a recording... or sneakily take a photo of the credits in a cinema..., type each name and character, etc) and deserves its own recognition.

@EvanD71​ yes kinda but this is a thing IMDb stuff should think and decide. Even if we have positive agree or negative agree it's nothing but a dead end.

@EvanD71@muzili Yeah, I completely get it. (That you don't have a problem with me, but the fact that it could come off as unfair) And contributing manually definitely is a tideous process. I have been there myself, and found myself in the situation where I spent a lot of time contributing manually. The thing is that we programmers are lazy, and if there is a repeating process we can make it go automatically.

@muzili​ Also, no, cookies can't be used. The programmer can just set the version of browser, type of browser, cookies and other things that would obfuscate that. A calculation of contributions per minute might also not favour collectives of people contributing because they would be multiple people doing stuff at the same time. And a rate of uploads can just be set by the contributor.

Just to note, some of the cookies directly pertain to being logged into the system, and there is no access privilege to the submission form for client hosts that represent unregistered or logged-out persons. Thus the matter of the cookies being used for tracking purposes is a given, an irrelevant given. On the server-side, it will always be clear how many submissions are derived form a particular IMDb user account, and how quickly, but it won't necessarily be easy to determine whether automation has been involved, multiple human beings using the same account or neither. Although, some of the cookies IMDb assigns are "tab-related" for lack of a better description, as they change values with every page visit, so there might be a way to tell if two separate computer systems are simultaneously logged into the same account.
