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.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Add back compact view in rating.

As so many people already mentioned here, the compact view was the view that most people used, so why on earth remove that. Easy exports to Excel and copying of lists to name a couple of issues that now are much garder. These last changes can't have been tested on end-users, right?

I guess none of the Admins will respond here anymore. They will try to sweep the massive negative critic under the carpet, as they did before (closing boards for example).

Nearly no one thinks this so called "improvement" helps anyone, but Col and Co. just ignore that fact. Its hard to think what kind of person makes such decisions and believe the community would appreciate it, when everyone sees that its a big step back in filtering and sorting your own rated movies.

Hey Col, just try a test with some random people and see if they prefer the old way or the "new" way to filter and sort movies - I bet everything I have the majority will not agree with your claiming :D

I have a much more detailed reply to the changes earlier in this thread but I just wanted to let people know what else I noticed about the changes.

I watch a lot of stand up comedy and with the previous filter it was easy to find which stand up specials I have seen in total and by a particular person.  For example George Carlin has made over a dozen stand up specials and the only way I can keep track of what I have seen was to filter out that information on the ratings page.

What I did find is that in there latest terrible changes they removed stand up as a category (genre) in which you can look up titles.  Now they classify these specials as either just "Comedy" or "Documentary/Comedy".  There is now easy way to look up these titles any longer because so many titles fall into those two categories and I doubt I will ever have a complete list of them again.

Thanks again IMDB development team.  For a site where most of the work is done for free by contributors who keep adding content you certainly do not care about pissing off everyone who has enjoyed this site.

This is totally ridiculous.  I currently have 1700 titles rated and like to browse through some of my old ratings (and it also takes me back to a certain time and place, to know what I rated when).  If you're asking me to "Load More" versus go to the "Next Page" that displays the next 100 titles, it's going to take up so much memory on the computer.  I might as well have never rated those titles if I can never go back and see them.

Why are people obsessed now with limiting functionality?  Nobody complains because a site has too much functionality.

Bloody hell, I havent noticed that. Load more is definitely not going to do when trying to browse more than 1000 titles back. Hopefully though they plan to develop this new barebones version.

Bah! You really don't know what you're doing, do you? It's all "remove, remove, remove". First the Forums, now this... The compact view was one of the most useful features on the site.

I seriously hate you right now :(

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Removal of filters under Your Ratings page.

Until a few days ago, we had the filter functionality within the 'Your Ratings' page. This helped me sort through all my rated titles based on type, genre, etc. which helped me find, for instance, how many tv shows I have watched, or how many movies in the action genre I have watched.

I know this can also be done using the advanced search, but that filter was a much easy way to achieve that. Also, I watch a lot of movies and tv shows and each time I do, I rate them on IMDb. So when any of my friends ask me for movie suggestions, I just used to give them the link to my rated titles page and my friends could filter it for themselves very easily. Now, doing this is so hard for me as well as for them.

Why was this feature removed in the first place? Id didn't make the page look ugly and it wasn't as if it was taking too much page space. Can it be brought back because it is extremely invaluable to me, and many others.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Layout Change to the User Rating Page - Good but can you add back infographic als....

The change to the user rating page is fine but you removed the infographic bar chart of ratings by gender and age and replaced it with a data table. I would really appreciate it if you could add back the chart also, the user experience was way better with the chart.

I could easily look at the chart and pick the demographic group I was invested in is seconds vs now it takes longer and is less visually appealing. 

I am sure there was a lot of thought that went into the layout change by your web design team but if there are huge benefits I am missing, please let me know. 

Huge fan of IMDB,

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Filters and sorting options on my ratings list are gone.

Today I noticed that I can no longer filter my ratings and the only available sort options are Most Recent and Top Rated. How am I now supposed to figure out which are my, e.g., highest rated War movies? If I click on the War bar under the Ratings Analysis, it does show me all the War movies I've rated, but there I can't sort by my rating.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Incorrect Ratings Totals.

With the latest changes to the IMDb ratings page, I now have what I consider a serious problem. On the "My Ratings" and "My Profile" page, the total number of titles I've rated is listed at 7,320. However due to titles being removed from the database, the total is actually 7,275. The only way to really know how many titles I've voted for is to go to the "My Ratings" page, export the file, open the file in Excel, drag to the bottom of the spreadsheet, and look at the final row number. Then I know how many I've actually seen. This is incredibly frustrating.

As a software engineer/web developer, I know there is a way to remove orphaned records from the deleted titles table so that your pages will reflect correct number of titles I've voted on. Could you PLEASE do this?

Thank you,

David (Simba63)

I used my ratings almost every time through the listing view. Now this feature seems to be retired, or will it have a comeback? I'm really missing this view and its statistiscs and options. I really, really hope, this comes back or either 11 years of rating won't be as satisfying to me anymore. Sadly. Thanks Björn

Your ratings stats are on "Your Activity" page at http://www.imdb.com/profile

For example, see mine over on the right on http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/ 

You should be able use advanced search at http://www.imdb.com/search/title for most other filters, sorts and counts (see earlier in the thread for examples).

Mr. Needham, please, add feature sort by Most recent to advanced search.

Mr Needham isn't listening. A deluge of complaints and he hasn't budged. I asked days ago whether users had been consulted about these changes. He didn't deign to answer but the user response is all the answer we need. We don't matter.

So, so true. Mr. Needham's silence to the universal revulsion to these changes is a resounding answer in and of itself. He either doesn't care about our concers, which is an indicator of the contempt IMDB has for its users, or his masters are pulling the leash tight around his throat. The situation reminds me of other disasters where the evidence of incompetence is plain to everyone but the authors of the catastrophe do their feeble best to convince everyone nothing has happened and there's nothing to be seen. Perhaps the managers of IMDB should run for Congress; their uselessness would be more at home there.

He did say they need to rebuild the functions on a new system. Now why would they need to remove the old system everyone relies on before that happens if it does, idk.
I don't see a "deluge" btw. I see barely anyone cares. Just 65 people signed up for this thread so far.

Well, 65 is quite a lot, Andru, although maybe only a small proportion of the overall users. And for every one who has posted there will be maybe hundreds more who are not annoyed enough to be bothered or to work out how to post. I don't see many (any?) who think the changes are a good idea.

I just want to make it very clear that this does NOT improve functionality. Basically the only upside to this "upgrade" is that this makes things easier for your coders. That's not how you make a user-friendly and useful website.

Now this can be an opportunity to show that you care about users here and their feedback and want to build a website everyone can enjoy. Or it will make it crystal clear that all that matters for you is to spend the least you can while advertising films for Amazon. Be careful or your true priorities might show.

I'm a new user here, and I can tell you this update leaves me confused and disappointed. I find it absurd that you claim the update will have made navigating the site easier ??? I can tell you, I moved from Rotten Tomatoes to here because I found the functionalities better. If you continue destroying what brought me to this website, I will move on to the next better film database.

Some of what you said above, seems very right, also, in light of the decision to delete the 'Message Boards', in the recent past.

I cannot the "most voted", "IMDb rating" or the "release date" of my film list anymore! The only thing I can see is "top rated" (former "your rating") and "most recent". Why?

I cant refine my ratings anymore. Before I could see only the TV episodes, or the movies If I wanted to. I also could refine the list only to show some ratings, etc...

Now I only can do it with my Watchlist, that doesnt have the same titles that my ratings...
