Lose the "K" please :-)

I miss seeing how many people have "voted"/given a rating, just shoving 76K instead of 76 101 looks like the score is just  based on 76 peoples opinion.

What does "K" stand for anyways, I’m guessing it means thousands, but this is an international site, and the use of "K" is not something that is familiar to other countries (I'm Norwegian).

k = kilio is an SI prefix. So it is international.

Thanks for the info :-)

But it does not mean that other countries use "K" instead of 1000 when writing numbers ;-)

So 76K is not generally understood as 76 000 to the general public in all other countries :-)

Also 76K is it 76 999 or 76 000

We measure the same way but we write 76 897 not 76K.

I can't find the runtime on the title page of this episode
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7833878/

even though it shows clearly just under the name of the episode on the older version of the page.

I don't like that the series page displays the runtime down at the bottom of the page under Tech Specs, especially given how much scrolling you've added to the page. Again, the old version shows it directly under the title.

I think it looks good BUT i am not a fan of the way they took away the iconic list-style formatting of the credits, cast, etc. If they can find a way to merge/do something that takes a little from both then I think that would be best. :/

I agree. It's much easier to scan down the list when the actors and characters are in separate columns.

Exact release date on top maybe under the title would be nice, the old version had it in the right place, now I have to scroll a lot to see it.

Exact release date on top would be great, maybe after the release year, the old version had it on the right place, now I have to scroll a lot.

The new design is too busy visually, in my honest opinion.  Most notably, the change to the cast layout. Having it split into two columns is off-putting, to put it mildy. I tried to let it sink in, but it seems no amount of time will make me feel any more comfortable with violating what I believe to be a cardinal rule of layout design. Maybe they're trying to increase the image size of each cast member and so want to still fit as many people as they can before needing to toggle the expansion, but it is overwhelming. The eyes shouldn't need to dart both side to side, up and down and diagonally in order to scan the page to find a cast member. Lists should remain lists. To me, it's a pretty fundamental rule that each column in a table/matrix should denote a unique field or type. To smoosh the same object (cast member) together into two columns looks and feels so wrong to me in ways that I am struggling to find the words to describe.

The major difference i noticed was similar title tabs. it's a useful feature. the suggestion of similar titles. Plus, unnecessary information is highlighted, I mean to say cast info, not many want to know about the cast, some do, but that too of main characters. So, I think you should minimize the size of it, keep it but make it a drop-down to look for more.

Hi, can you squeeze in the release date at the top again? There are still plenty of empty space there and release date is a crucial info, not good to have to scroll so much to find it.

I simply do not understand the current fascination with round photos. The pictures for the cast look terrible and, in some cases, do not even include the person they are meant to portray. Richard Bright is a horse?

Not really a fan of the new layouts for the Title pages, etc.  Why not give each user an option of which site layout to use?
