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 Why am I no longer able to refine my ratings?.

When I click on my name on the right-hand side of the page, from the drop-down menu is "Your Ratings". I click on it and it takes me to all my ratings. I use to be able to refine my ratings based on type of film, genre etc. The refine option is no longer available. Why is this so?

Why did you remove the refine tool???? That makes no sense. Why remove a feature that works so well?

What sense does it make to remove the refine ratings filter??? I only went to that page for that reason. Why would you create LESS functionality??? Why fix something that isn't broken? The page is useless now. Bring back the Refine option please.

"Why fix something that isn't broken?" The individual feature indeed was not broken, but it is possible that the system it depended upon was broken. Not to worry, as it seems like the greatest features of the old system will be ported to the new system.

The rating list is one of my favorite features for many different reasons. Yet I am missing the sorting checkboxes. I can see that this feature is still implemented on the watchlist under the 'Refine' button. Would it be possible to implement this feature back in the user rating list page please ? Thanks.

Why did you remove the REFINE feature? I'm sitting here trying to understand the reason for it. The only reason I went to my ratings page was so I could sort them and answer questions my friends asked, like "How many documentaries have you seen" "How many short films have u watched". IMDb is suppose to be improving and adding new features. Why delete a PERFECT feature that EVERYONE likes? Look how many people have voiced their opinion on this topic. I have been using IMDb for 10+ years and have never had an issue before this. I use this site every day. The ratings page has no use now. I hardly visit it now.

You can do all this and much more via advanced title search at https://www.imdb.com/search/title

For example, as mentioned above, all the documentaries you have seen, sorted by your vote @ https://www.imdb.com/search/title?genres=documentary&my_ratings=restrict&sort=my_ratings,des...

If you are interested in simple analysis and genre counts then see the "Ratings Analysis" widget on the right of Your Activity page which can be reached from the menu in the upper right of every IMDb page; direct link is https://www.imdb.com/profile (and click the "See more" under the "By Year" section for the genre analysis)

How are users who are on their profile page or their "Your Ratings" page supposed to know this? They look at their ratings, see some options and probably think that that's it.
