PEtition link to stop IMDB to stop its so-called "New Look!" Please go onto this link to see my comments...https://chng.it/xtprF89H

Don't erase this! This is freedom of speech and as such should be allowed all my fellow actors to have the choice to reject of accept of these absurd changes!

Not really liking the new design.  I prefer the list style and seeing all the projects on one page, at once.  With people's "limited attention" these days, you're doing everyone a disservice by "hiding" all of the projects.

I've started a petition for the New Amazon look to stop its changes to IMDB.

 Please help up get enough signatures to stop these changes. Please pass the link to your fellow actors and social media outlets so that this type of change doesnt happen! Thank you so much.

Please just keep the current reference view as is, it is good and very much tried and tested.  It has all the necessary information on a single page and works both on large and small screens alike.

If you really must change it, just have the "Explore More" removed, i.e. always expand the side bar, and call it a day.

Also, it is not like it couldn't be fine tuned.  There are still raster graphics that could be presented these days as vector graphics, just to name a single example.  Implementing that might require less bandwidth, thus lower energy consumption and therefore be a more sensible option for modern environmental friendly, or at least aware, era!

I made the mistake of clicking on the "new look" for IMDb pages that are in development, and to my dismay, the choice came to be default. I'd like to go back to the traditional look. Is there a way to revert back?

Yes, click the "stopwatch" image in the same place in the name page where you clicked before.

@HClegg​  We have now made the opt-out pop-up sticky until dismissed so the opt-out should be easier to find.

Add a banner ad top of all the 11,746,200 Name Pages 
Many of the 154,950,000 Users may not see the floating timer / clock button on the page
or know why it's there 🙄

@ACT_1​ The opt-in opens a pop-up by default on every name page until dismissed.  The opt-out now does likewise. The beta ends next week and more people have tried it than we ever would have imagined (also, the opt-out rate is remarkably low even with the opt-out now significantly more visible).  If anything, a banner at the top of the page would be less visible (unless we made it flashing red :-).

The new page displays character names with "as", unlike the old page.

The new page also omits "Self" from character names in the Self section.

This can have awkward results because of Self character descriptions:

In this case it looks like Kim Kardashian appeared as On the Phone in 21 episodes when she is actually listed as "Self - On the Phone" in two episodes and as "Self" in 19 episodes.

"As" attributes are not displayed for TV series, not even when clicking to view episodes. This seems inconsistent when they are displayed for other titles.

@Peter_pbn​  Thanks for confirming this bug.  It's the same with (voice) credits, for example, see Julie Andrews in Bridgerton (or rather, hear her in Bridgerton :-)

On mobile view: These issues already exist in the old mobile site, but it might make sense to consider them when updating the pages:

When there is a featured video, it is at the top above the headshot. I think this might sometimes make it confusing when the video still frame features a different person.

The space for the bio is not always long enough to display even automatic bios on a small screen.

What are you thinking? PLEASE don't make this new beta version the new webpage. It is awful. Hard to find credits. Now I have to click to add previous credits??? I had to do it a dozen or more times for an actor with hundreds of credits. I loved the site for years, and the ability to wiz down the page seeing the list of credits. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF MAKING THIS YOUR NEW PAGE!

This is a giant step in the wrong direction. The truncation of information in the current design streamlines any query I have about a film, actor or crew member. When I want to know more about a particular film/person, it's fine if I click and you want to add more pics, but the initial impression should be a large overview. 

The new design is all splash, little content, and filled with things I don't care about perse. Trailer button, star rating, movie poster, I don't care unless I'm searching for that specific film. 

PS - I rarely watch trailers on your site because I have to sit through commercials. You realize a trailer is a commercial, right?

@CoryReeder​  Thanks for taking the time to try the beta and to share your feedback.  We have just provided some more details in the reply above

Regarding ads before trailers, the ads help to pay for the cost of acquiring and serving the trailers.  IMDb does not receive any payment from the distributors of the movies or shows for showing their trailers.  If we did, we would not place ads before them, so trailers on IMDb (and across the web generally) are not ads in the typical sense. 

Hope this helps.

@Col_Needham​ yeah, the last line CoryReeder wrote was funny. I don't care about that issue. EVERYTHING ELSE CoryReeder wrote about is the thing! No comment on those issues?

Dump the New page look! It is garbage! Save yourself money by sending out pink slips to the designers and the committee who thinks up new things. Forgive the cliche: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. With the New page look, you just broke it. Congrats!

HOW DO I OPT-OUT OF THESE EMAILS? 

Holy crap, I've taken the time to look at the site and give feedback, but I don't need an email for every response - sheesh!

I'm not following the thread - btw - the emails just keep coming.

UNSUBSCRIBE PLEASE - or at least add that option to your emails and I'll do it myself.

The new version is horrible. Why would you do this? How do I reset the "trial" so I can at least enjoy the current format for a little bit longer?

@ahoye​ It’s at the top of the page, for example, see https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0428065/ — perhaps you are looking at a page for someone who does not have a biography?

On new "feature" that I strongly dislike in the new design hides information behind a 'show next' button. If I'm looking at an actor with hundreds of credits it takes many clicks of the 'show next 30' items to see the earliest entries. Please add a 'Load All' button that would load all entries to address this. Thanks.

Holy crap, I have just switched to the new IMDB style, and it's bad, real bad. Don't make the design switch, that's my advice. The old one is 100x better, so don't try to fix something that isn't broken. What I especially don't like is that it's now two columns and not one big list when it comes to seeing the actor/actress credits, and you have to click on the ''more'' button, very annoying!

I'm using the current/old version on Android.  Starting last week, when I scroll down, the page will fill about a fifth of the screen on the left, and the entire right side will be blank.  Is this due to the beta version?
