  3. Top Rated Movies List

    This would be a list of the movies rated the highest by the community. It would be similar to IMDb's top 250 list, or Rotten Tomatoes' Top 100 Movies of All Time list. I think that this would give new users a good place to find some movies considered good by (mostly) everyone to rate.

  5. Multiple wishlists

    List with movies to watch with my 6 yo daughter
    List to watch with my girlfriend (perhaps she and I can combine our recommendations by the system to find what we would like together)
    List for oldies when I'm in the mood for that.
    Etc.

    Thank you. I really appreciate your service!!

  8. Add the ability to sort "My Ratings" alphabetically.

    I'm surprised this isn't in your list of sorting options for My Ratings already.

  9. tag auto completion when entering new tags to movies

    It would be useful if one got auto completion suggestions for tags when adding new tags to movies. Similar to what happens when you type in a word in the search bar.

    We would love to do this, too. We are still considering our options, since it’s not totally clear how to get this data.

  13. Open source the codebase

    Your datasets are open ... why not open the code as well?

  14. Remove TV Shows

    There are a large amount of TV shows that are appearing in my recommendations. There's an option to mark these as not a movie, but I have not seen them get removed.

    A few examples:
    Stranger Things: https://movielens.org/movies/162376
    Black Mirror: https://movielens.org/movies/94466
    Making a Murderer: https://movielens.org/movies/150856

    Is there a type of threshold needed to get these removed?

  15. Dark theme

    I tried to use Firefox's dark color switcher, but it overlays over the stars (so I can't se recommendations). Since your focus is movies, a dark theme seems logical. Many of your users browse this site with an HTPC. Many HTPCs (like mine) use dark themes,,, specifically because it's more amenable to night viewing. Please give us a dark theme option.

  16. Revert Tile Changes

    The new tile changes, while visually appealing, significantly reduce ease of use for the site. I enjoyed that I could rate, hide, or wishlist any movie with static buttons which were always in the same place on the movie's tile. This allowed for quick rating and quick watchlisting. Now I must hover to pop up the star ratings and have to click into a context menu to either hide the movie or add it to the watchlist. While only being a few more actions, it significantly reduces the site's snappy user interface. I strongly dislike waiting for sliding animations and…

  17. User Appreciation

    I think there should be some sort of rewards system for people who continue to use movielens. For example after rating say, 500 titles, could there at least be a thank you? It may seem trivial but in my opinion every one wants to feel that their input is valued and appreciated.

    I think this is a really great idea.

    Others: would a “thank you” email message make you feel good? Would you rather see thank you messages in the interface, or with badges/points?

  19. Cannot find the RSS feature from the old version (to see which were the last 20 movies I rated)

    I really liked the RSS feat feature of the old version. It often helped me remember the name of the movie I wanted to recommend to a friend. I also found it interesting to see which were the last 20 movies or so I had watched and entered on the side...

  20. Allow users to pick favorite genres (was: The selection of obvious genres is questionable)

    When I press the "Explore" button I found a list of genres half of which are irrelevent for me. Either make the list of obvious genres dynamically chosen for my account, or let me configure it, or give me more of them in the menu, or whatever.

    It gives me

    animation
    comedy
    documentary
    foreign (this is no a genre dammit!) Foreign to whom????

    I'd rather see

    adventure
    file noir
    eastern
    western

    so most of the times I will have to click twice.
