Keywords with only downvotes are not sorted lower than keywords with no votes. I wonder if this is intentional?

Example: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727824/keywords

I don't know if this is the right place for a comment on the new Trivia format, but... it's a *lot* less dense.  Please switch back, or at least make it an option to switch back.

I think it doesn't look good when an item with a shared link is duplicated on the page like this:

I'm sure this wasn't the case with the previous design, so it can probably be considered a bug. The same applies to other pages with shareable items like Goofs, Crazy Credits, Quotes too.

Hi @mbmb​ -

Just circling back to confirm that the repeated item is not a bug and is displaying as designed, but thanks for flagging!

@Michelle​ It's really confusing and looks bad. The previous design also highlighted the shared item, but didn't duplicate it. I wouldn't be surprised if this results in things being reported as duplicates and deleted even though they were the only items.

the bullet points for trivia entries aren't showing up now on the new version of the site.

I'm not seeing the bullet points either, on PC or phone. A new line starts, but no bullet. I noticed that Google cache does show them, so perhaps it depends on device.

Example:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1872818/trivia/?item=tr3389225

In the iOS app the bullet points are displayed as asterisks.

I do see bullet points on alternate version pages:

Hi,

Checking blooper page on the website for a FUBAR episode (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt18500790/goofs/?ref_=tttrv_sa_1) only TWO goofs are shown.

But on the App I see three. 

The "missing" one has a "SPOILER" alert, maybe it's related to this?

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled Blooper with SPOILER alert is NOT shown on website, but it's ok on the App

Let's make those categories at 'More from this title' at the bottom of a page a different color or faded like they were before when there isn't anything on that page. I check crazy credits on every movie I see and it is quite frustrating to click on it and then there is nothing there.

I just want to say that the new design of the Awards page is absolutely awful! I am a library cataloger, specializing in video cataloging, and use IMDb daily to help flesh out details in my records.

The previous design of showing each award in a grid, grouping winning categories together, made it very easy to quickly differentiate wins vs nominations. The new design has all the categories listed in no discernable order, and since some of the awards may be collapsed, I can't even count on using Control-F to find all instances of "winner".

In addition, the old design displayed the awards alphabetically (with the exception of the big ones (Academy, BAFTA, etc.) at the top). Since I need to track certain awards and not others, it was relatively easy to scroll through an alphabetical list and know approximately where to find them on the page. The order of awards on the new design appears to be completely random, making it extremely difficult to find what I need.

I'm not sure who thought this randomization of information would be helpful to anyone. I have been using IMDb to help with video cataloging for 20 years, and until this recent change, loved being able to find everything I needed in one place. I am seriously thinking about abandoning it for this purpose and visiting the websites for each award instead.

Why is only some of the trivia listed and I have to click to get it all?  Why wouldn't it list all of it, and on what mysterious grounds do they show some items and not others?  This is a good example of the Internet trying to reach the lowest common denominator.  If I'm interested in the trivia, would I want to see all of it?
