Updates to the Ratings pages and functionality

Today we have made several updates to our Ratings pages and functionality. We have improved the design of the ratings details page to give it a cleaner, more modern look.


We have also made several changes, listed below. These changes only impact the Your Ratings page on the IMDb desktop Website. You may find much of this information by creating and running custom searches on the AdvancedTitle Search page. For example, to see comedy titles you have rated, sorted by your rating, see this advancedsearch. Or, to see titles you have rated that are in the IMDb Top250 list, see this advancedsearch.





What did we change?

1.     We removed the Compact list view. This was accessible from the far right icon (see A in the screen capture below). The grid view and detailed list view are still available.

2.     We updated the “Sort by” dropdown box. It now provides the two most popular choices: Most Recent (previously called Recently Rated) and Top Rated (previously Your Rating). Sort by: Your rating, Title A-Z, Release date (US),Number of votes, IMDb rating, and Popularity were removed. See B in the screen capture below.

3.     We removed the Refine ratings filters options from the Your Ratings page on the desktop site. See C in the screen capture below.

4.     We removed the Find More Titles tab. See D in the screen capture below.









5.     We removed the Recommended for You section on the User/Ratings page.

6.     We changed the format of data in the Ratings Export. You can export your ratings to Excel by clicking the new overflow menu (the 3 vertical dots) above your list in the updated experience, and choosing Export.

There are many ways to find new titles to watch. IMDb users can use Advanced Search, look through the recommendations for new titles to watch under People who liked this also liked... on any title page, or see Top Rated Movies.

Thank you for your continued support.


Karen

Thank you for the ongoing feedback on ratings (and a reminder to see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0 for the wider context).

This is an update for January 19. Already implemented:
  • We switched "Load more" to "Previous | Next" pagination
  • We addressed issues with the export of large ratings lists
  • We added "Date of Your Rating" sorts (in both directions) to advanced search at http://www.imdb.com/search/title
  • We fixed a bug to preserve the sort order beyond page one
This work is in-progress between now and the end of March:
  • 'Filter by ratings number' so you can see everything you have rated a certain number, e.g., all titles you have rated '8'  [DONE]
  • 'Add date of ratings' so you can see when you rated a title [DONE]

Ideas for the long term:

Please bear with us while we work through the above list (and equivalent lists for other impacted features). Our aim remains to make IMDb the best place to rate movies, shows (and other title types) both on the web and on mobile.

IMDb user Dan Dassow has compiled a useful tutorial on using ratings (and other features) at https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/tutorial-workarounds

Finally, please note that ratings can be filtered and sorted via advanced title search at http://www.imdb.com/search/title via the "Your Ratings" section using the option "Restrict to titles I've seen" -- search results there can be saved as bookmarks/favorites.

Hi everyone. One small announcement for the week ending Feb 16. We updated the dual sort/filter drop downs that were causing some confusion last week. You can now filter by Show All and choose to sort by Most Recent or Top Rated OR you can filter by a specific star rating.

We are continuing to work on additional updates to Ratings and I will announce those once they are available.

Hi everyone. This week (ending Mar 2) there is one update for Ratings. We fixed a bug that was causing some users' ratings to be missing from their reviews.

Hi everyone. Thanks for your patience and feedback as we've released Ratings features over the past 3 months. This will be the last of the weekly updates to this announcement thread, but please keep adding ideas for future Ratings ideas here: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb?topic-list[settings][type]=idea I'll post new announcements on Get Satisfaction as we release new features and functionality in the future.

Why did you do this?????
You mention six things, five of them start with "we removed". Why did you do this? This doesn't make any sense to me, not at all.

Why would you remove the refine ratings filter? That was literally the only reason I ever went to that page. Is IMDb aware that people want MORE functionality, not less? If you plan on bringing the filter back, then please tell us that!

Are you keeping the "Advanced Tittle Search" page? That's basically the same thing as what you removed from the ratings page.

This is a truly bewildering decision. Removing these features is inconvenient and regressive and offers no advantage whatsoever; it just reduces the utility of the website. How can anyone think this is in any way helpful?

This is crazy. I used the copy facility to update my other lists from the ratings list. I can't do that anymore. The usefulness of the entire website for me has been greatly diminished and I will doubtless now use it less. Internet companies are constantly "updating" just for the sake of it, it seems. Remember, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
