Ratings: Allow more precise voting

Me and my friends recently use IMDB a lot to rate. But we think it would be great if you were allowed to rate More precisely. Because you can find an episode great but is it worth a 10? is it that good? but when you give a 9 you are like mhh this is better.  I'ts just that the difference between two numbers can be very big.

So me and my friends would like to suggest if it is possible to give ratings like 9.4 , 4.5 , 8.6, ...

Thanks for reading.

I agree completely.  I have reached the point of feeling stymied because of having to move a full point when my mind is saying .6 towards the next whole number.

Hello guys!
So here's the thing.. You've probably heard this before but I felt like I just had to say it.. again.. YOU GUYS (IMDb) MUST CHANGE THE RATING SYSTEM TO A MORE DETAILED ONE WITH COMMA! I mean it's just so difficult to explain to people that I haven't rated some movies the same, you have to find the differences in ratings between movies, and you can't do that with the current rating system. So I am eagerly trying to figure out a way to differentiate the ratings of my viewed movies, but it's just impossible. I therefore encourage you guys to change the rating system. Please. On behalf of every other IMDB member, change it. Please. Thank you. Kind regards.

Speak for yourself... I think the current system works fine.

But how are you then able to make difference between two movies you've rated the same? For instance if I'd ask you how you could possibly value (rate) the Godfather the same as Matrix, what would your answer be? The ratings on IMDb shows a lot about the movie, not always correct but most often. The ratings you're giving with a "comma rating system" are more accurate and shows a more detailed valuation of the movie. It's more precisely and gives an intuition of your rating.

We really need ratings to 1 decimal place in the same way that IMDb ratings are. I have created a public list of all my DVDs and end up with loads of 8s. Of these I'd love to rank these 8.0 to 8.9 whch would then order correctly in my 'Your Rating" order ( which unfortunately lists worst to best by default).

TO IMDB TEAM: Please consider adding ".5" options to your rating system. For example, giving the users the ability to rate a movie 7.5 rather than just 7 or 8. I believe it will help overall movie rating be more accurate and for those of us who take pleasure in rating these movies seriously and critically, it will allow us to more accurately differentiate one movie from another. Thanks for you consideration!!

As it has always been, IMDb only let us register our rates with integer numbers (5, 6, 7, 8, etc). Well, most films I watch are already rated from 6 to 8 and I usually rate them from 4 thru 10. Most frequently with 6, 7 or 8. You see? One could say that I have only 3 possible rates to express my feeling about a movie. That's far from enough! e.g.: Too often I find that a film is better 6 but don't really deserves a 7. That also makes difference when one is browsing some user's Ratings List, searching for good stuff to watch. I thing I should be able to rate, let's say, [6.7], [6.4], [7.3]...
Thanks for reading.

I Think That The User Should Be Able To Gove Ratings In Terms Of Points Like The Official Ratings Of The IMDb. As In '6.6' or '8.9' or Something Like This Instead Of Just '8.0' or '6.0' . It Would Better Because We Would Be Able To Give Exactly The Type Of Rating That We Wanna Give To Any Title.

Sometimes I would like to rate a movie with .5’s. 5.5, 6.5, 7.5 etc. like I just watched the Italian job and it’s better than a seven but not quite an 8.
Anyone else feel the same??

I think we all have this struggle to rate a movie...

And yeah I agree that Imdb needs to introduce a new rating system in "0.5 "
But I understand that is possibly complicated to Imdb introduce that.

In my case, it's not just "0,5" but rather "0,1-9". With a lot more detailed voting system for anyone to clarify, in a more specified form, their exact ratings.

What do people think of the idea of scaling the ratings to utilise the full 1 to 10 spectrum?  Whether it's because people are nice, or because you are more likely to bother to rate a film that you like, almost all ratings are over 5.0.  Even the 100th worst rated movie in the entire database has a 4.1.  Exams are scaled so the average score is 50%, which makes the result more meaningful.  Or course TV would have to be scaled separately because TV shows are even more highly rated than movies.  IMDb is such a valuable data source, because there is nowhere else in the world where so many people contribute to rate the quality of a film.  This data would be more valuable if it was weighted correctly so the average rating is 5.0.
