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.

I use the filters on my ratings as part of my job working in public library. I don't see how this is helpful. I was trying to pull up a list of all of the 2017 movies that I rated this year, but found that this is no longer possible. I ended up having to quess by showing all of my results and hand-counting all movies with a 2017 release date. I can't be the only person who uses their ratings in this way. Why would sorts and filters only be available for my watchlist but not for my ratings? If anything, the ratings and watchlist items could be integrated into one view (much like you would find on Goodreads for books) with the sorts and filters (and hell, a batch edit feature) in one place. If IMDb is no longer catering to the personal user what is the point of this site?

I agree that removing Refine options on Ratings was a giant step backward.

But I'm not sure you needed to hand count anything.
Advanced Title Search should have helped:
Enter Release Dates 2017 for both high and low
A few selection boxes above the end of search criteria, find
Your Ratings, and select  Restrict to Titles I've Seen
I would want a Compact list, and sorted by Your rating or Date of Your rating

Try this link:

Yes, "your ratings" page now lacks boxes for selecting genre & TV/Short/film etc & year sliders. If anything they should have ADDED a checkbox for different decades which I  and probably other users would  find useful. 

....Currently "Your ratings" -page has only two options to sort by: most recent/top rated... and the latter doesn't even work, at least for me at the moment.  Really weak.

I guess I'll have to access these features through "advanced search" then, if possible.

-

Having said that....
Under "my profile" ...clicking "see more" you can still select for example westerns that you have seen and sort them with various methods - which is good.

-

A suggestion:

I have longed for long time on actor's/director's etc personal page an option to click a link which would bring me to a list of their films I have rated.

....For example on Harrison Ford's page a link which would search for me all his films I have rated from best to worst.

I use this kind of search A LOT and always have to do it through "advanced search".

So how about adding features instead of removing them.... I double dare you.

-

Oh and one more thing... I really like the feature of being able to download your own ratings as Excel file (or csv). 
That's probably the most important feature of IMDB for me at the moment. Advanced search is very important as well. I've already voiced my opinion on film review filters (get them back).

More power to power users. Forget mobile kiddies... they will switch to any site which is "cool" at the moment...

The one feature you mention is already there.  There is a link on each person's page where you can see how much a person's X work you have seen.  Unfortunately the list seems to be very random with no rhyme or reason to how the list is constructed.  It can only be sorted the way you (or I) would like, but you can currently see hoe many works you have rated for each person.  The link is buried on the right side of the screen.

Indeed. Thank you....

I had not tried the "new" version of actor pages, but coincidentally IMDB apparently forced me today (can't use old layout). No problem there, I think the new layout is good, and that "explore more - ratings" -function is very good.

Now if only the default for filmography-ratings would be:
you and this list-titles I rated-release date. Then it would be near perfect.

There's missing an option to arrange titles by my own rating, which I think is essential option to have.
...Note that if I (or someone else) see a list of titles I have rated then I'm not interested in ordering titles by general imdb rating but by my own rating, naturally...

I shall use the aforementioned as an opportunity to promote an older GS topic authored by me.

Since your post documented existing capacities, I didn't officially Vote for it (since it's categorized as an Idea). But I bookmarked it for reference.

It looks like the ability to exclude results from the Advanced Searches (ATS and ANS) was taken away a long time ago. Maybe usage consumed too much CPU time on their servers or something. Very unfortunate.

Perhaps because you didn't tap the 3-vertical-dot menu icon to the right of the title Your Ratings.

Elsewhere you posted 
ironically, List view in Lists is no longer available
I'm not clear to what you refer. Perhaps Compact view? Yes, that's gone with the Dec 6 update. But a compact view (with only sort features, and the ability to add titles to the Watchlist) exists in Advanced Title Search. Plenty of lobbying going on in the thread to which your questions are very likely to be merged: Update to List Pages.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled user ratings export issue: "original title" vs. "IMDb display title".

Hello, before today the last time I exported my user ratings list was on November 29, and the titles were correctly displayed in my (Italian) language. I re-downloaded the list today (because of the additional votes I have cast in the meanwhile) and unfortunately the movies are now displayed under their original titles, which make a lot of them hardly recognizable. Eg. "Kimi no na wa." for a film known in Italy as "Your Name.", "Demain tout commence" instead of "Famiglia all'improvviso - Istruzioni non incluse", "Chugyeogja" in place of "The Chaser" and
"Hummingbird" instead of "Redemption".

Could you fix this issue and restore the user's default language to the movies in the list as to make the list immediately comprehensible?

Probably at this point this website should be renamed getignored.com, or gettrolled.com. Noone cares anymore to offer a reply, or a suggestion, or to find a solution to an issue.

This is the thread for ratings issues and so your post best belongs here where the team responsible are reading and recording issues to be addressed.

Hi, stefano. Get Satisfaction merely hosts the IMDb community, among many other things. I don't know if all those other companies ignore or troll their customers like IMDb Official Reps do. Haha :P

The developers (a possible skeleton crew of which) are too busy to act with any immediacy on a number of key matters.

"Reading and recording" but otherwise ignoring?  All we're asking for are a couple of basic functions to be brought back.

For context, please see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0 

The old software system simply does not exist any longer due the timeline on which we have to fully close the old systems (end-of-year 2017) so our engineers cannot simply uncomment parts of the retired code to restore old functions. 

As outlined already, we are taking this opportunity to eliminate many inconsistencies between interfaces.  Unfortunately there are more losses in functionality than we would prefer in the short term.  So, yes, the team are reading and recording the highest impact items for consideration in the New Year.  Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled my ratings filtering - was it there or wasn't?!??.

with all recent crappy and "helpful" changes (with ideas and implementation from some preschooler) ..I don't even know now if there were filters in My Ratings before or not. I'd swear there were, since I sometimes/often get asked about "best Sci-Fi TV Shows" or "best mini-series".. but mayber I just scrolled through my nines and tens.. then again - I cannot imagine doing this with all episodes rated.. :(((

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Refinement filters in Ratings.

I remember earlier there was a refine panel for ratings also, just like watchlist. It was really helpful to filter my movie/series ratings.

Not sure why it was removed, but would be great to have that.
