Most Popular Movies problem in web

In the list of Most Popular Movies https://www.imdb.com/chart/moviemeter/ number 95 is missing (on my Android phone this is not the case, number 95 is present)

Number 95 is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11924384/ which is Short. This is error in the web application? Or it is using different API or Data Base from the mobile application? I think the problem is that 95 is Short, but anyway it is missing from the list on web and it doesn't look good.

@de_crecy,

CC: @Michelle ,

I've confirmed that the 95th ranked film is also missing from the list of Most Popular Movies https://www.imdb.com/chart/moviemeter/ using the FireFox web browser.

Feature Film (Sorted by Popularity Ascending)

https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&count=100

Produces a slightly different list.

Hi @de_crecy,

 

Thank you for your inquiry.

 

I have confirmed that it has been updated now and the #95 is included.

 

You can check it on the same link you shared before.

I am opening this because I cannot reopen:

https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdbcom/most-popular-movies-problem-in-web/624ebcb779f390095b880477

I can confirm that the problem is not solved, because it is appearing again:

(current list, number 61 is missing)

It disappears when there is no short in the list, but if there is Short the problem appears again.

Wanted to add that you're referring to this list:

https://www.imdb.com/chart/moviemeter/

I see 61 missing as well.

Hello @de_crecy , thanks for the context.

I've used 2 browsers (Google Chrome and Firefox) and I can confirm that the tittle #61 is corrected; although, I have noticed that #84 is missing. Based on this, I've forwarded this information to our technical team for further investigation.

I'll reply once we receive further information - thank you for your patience!

Hello @Edward,

The results on this list are changing every Monday, it depends when you are checking the list it can be correct or some number can be missing.

Like I said previously, somehow Short's, Video's and other categories are getting popularity that is in Top 100, but this list (I guess) is programmed to show only Mouvies (Features). That is the reson for missing.

If there is no Short or Video in the Top 100 popular then the list is ok, if there is then there is problem. Like I said in the second post the problem is not fixed if the list is ok in the current week, it can be broken again thr next week.

In the mobile app the list is always ok, one solution is the developers to use the API call from the mobile app in the web.
