That's funny. I would expect that you are high in my TCI-list as well, but you are exactly at #1000 for me. :shrug:

#1000 (and the next 2 or 3 TCIs) are kind of bugged. Criticker seems to fill them in with whatever it finds when someone higher up the list gets removed for not having enough films in common.

mjf333 is probably one of those people who's high on most people's lists. He's #15 for me.

The long awaited make-up has finally happened. Some minor adjustments have to be made for film pages, other than that it looks good.

PSI is still a mystery to me. I just went to the Criticker page for Guelwaar. My PSI said 76. There were no rankings for my kumpels, so I went to all rankings. There I noticed mathiasa. I went to his profile page, added him as a kumpel and then I went back to Guelwaar. My PSI had changed to 79 suddenly. Mathiasa rated it 70. I don't get it. :shrug:

it isn't based on kumpels, it is based on the first ten among your top 1000 TCIs, those people with closest taste.

But how can it jump 3 points within two minutes? Did one of my top TCI coincidentally rate it at that very moment?

The TCIs aren't all perfectly up to date. It could also be that mathiasa was in your top 10 for that film and isn't any more. Or it could be he wasn't before and is now, but his 70 is actually a higher ranking for him than 76 is to you.

I saw people talking about how useful Criticker is to select directors you like in the Best Directors-thread. So thinking of trying it. Before I do I want to know a bit more.

I know it's possible to import ratings from imdb. But those ratings are only in whole points (1-2-3-4) etc., while I rate my movies also with .2, .5 and .8. Do I have to adjust all those manually?

And what are the other advantages of it? That PSI and TC?. That is interesting, but not sure if it worth all the work that I will have to put into it.

I'm sorry I'm sure this has come up before in this tread. But too lazy to read the whole thread.

Yeah, you have to do adjustments manually. You can batch edit on a list of all your rankings (60 per page) so it's not that big a task if you know which films you want to change.
And what are the other advantages of it? That PSI and TC?. That is interesting, but not sure if it worth all the work that I will have to put into it.
TCI is people whose tastes are "similar" to yours it's decently interesting on its own but what really makes it worthwhile is PSI which are the predicted scores. It's pretty good at guessing what you'll think of a movie, with some obvious exceptions, so that makes it a good recommendation engine.

So if I understand correctly if I want for example to change bunch of movies from 70 to 75, I can select 60 and change them all to 75 at the same time?

That PSI seems interesting. Don't care too much about the TCI.

Once you have all your ratings in there, it's great for lists because you can sort your top ranked films by genre, year, decade, director, actor, etc., or use the PSI to sort unseen films by predicted score. There's also a "collections" tab that's similar to ICM lists, where you can see how you rated (or what you need to see) from various lists.

Is there a way to find out which movies you rated on IMDB, but not on Criticker?
And is there a way to find out which movies you rated on IMDB are not on Criticker at all?

Criticker has an export function, but that sucks. You can get a txt-file, but it's just text, not a table and it doesn't include IMDB-links.

Import your imdb ratings. You'll get a collection with your newly rated films, they'll also be right at the top, and all the films that aren't on criticker will have the message "Not yet in our database. Please add it, if you'd like" and be grouped at the bottom.
That same import page has criticker links/titles for every film that was imported. Cross reference that with a criticker export of your ratings to see which films weren't rated on imdb.

Thanks! I'll try. I'm sure I haven't got movies rated on Criticker but not on IMDB, so I don't need that last cross-reference.

I didn't know you get a list of movies not in their database when you import. I'll use that to gradually add those titles to Criticker.

So it took me three times trying to export my IMDB-ratings. Then I filled the missing ratings. The same bug still appears: about 40 of my ratings don't show up in the export. I have to find them in Excel, but insert them in Notepad, otherwise Criticker don't recognise the file anymore.

Ready to import on Criticker.

Now where did that import-button go? :shrug:

Criticker kills it often with reviews. One that had me right now from natebarrios on Taste of Cherry: "Dude picks up a guy that kinda looks like Manny Pacquiao. It'd be funny if he picked up Dirk Diggler."

I found this post from last year and I think I did exactly what Peaceful suggested there, but it worked last year but not now. I'll try again from scratch. I think I used Excel this time before using Notepad, so I'll work with a fresh export-file in Notepad this time.

It worked this time!!
I went up from 6270 rankings to 6350. But unfortunately I only saw that by going back to the homepage after Criticker wasn't loading for 5 minutes and it said "internal error". So I never saw the page with a list of movies not yet in their database. I'll try to import again to see if I can get that page...

Now on to the next problem:

When I first imported my IMDB-ratings a year ago, my ratings 1 to 10 from IMDB were set as 10 to 100 at Criticker, which is fine. I never started using the full scale, so I only give out 10, 20, 30, etc...
Now I have imported my IMDB-ratings again and suddenly I see some scores like 78 and 65. In fact the scores of 65 are ratings 5 on IMDB. Why isn't it consistent? And how do I make it right? Should I delete all my Criticker-scores and import from scratch?

I think it's not consistent because your number of imdb ratings aren't equal ie ten 1's, ten 2's, ten 3's &c.

or something.

If you have no reviews and no attachment to the dates listed on criticker, then you could just wipe and import the whole thing. If you do, then you can go into the imported collection and batch edit the ratings to what you want them to be. It doesn't take long with a quick copy/paste.

They really should let you specify what rating corresponds to what.

Well, actually I just did the batch-edit instead. I had to do about 40, so it wasn't too much work. Whenever I watch a movie I always rate on IMDB, check on ICM and rate in Criticker immediately. The only titles that were wrong now, were titles that have been added to Criticker in the past year.

I just joined B) Still have to edit all my ratings to make it more accurate. Now it's still based on my imdb ratings, with a 1 being 10. and so on. I should be very easy to find on it ;)

Is there a good guide on what everything means? What is a tier? What is the difference with your score? I'm sorry I'm such a noob. :unsure:

I tried adding some titles, but got this:
TV Series - Criticker doesn't currently accept television series, individual episodes, shorts or specials into the system
Has this always been the case? I can understand TV series, but shorts?
EDIT: appears shorts are accepted, apparently they're referring to TV episode shorts, just confusing wording.

Last time I had a film rejected, several years ago, I got an email saying so. There's no reason why those should be rejected. I assume you submitted a screenshot/poster since otherwise it won't let you make the submission, so most likely it's your description.

Yep, I suspect descriptions might be the issue with these as I mostly wrote "early silent short" or something of that sort, but what else can one write about those... but I got no email notifications whatsoever. Anyways, I emailed them now with a question, hope they answer.

For the first you could write early silent short about the arrival and departure of President Loubet. (I guess it shows that) ^_^

Meanwhile I got the reply already:
Spoiler: click to toggleShow
We unfortunately don't have a way yet for users to see their rejected submissions, although we do plan on offering this soon. We do keep a list, however, of all rejected submissions and the reason they were rejected.

It looks like you've had a few rejected for the reason of "Insufficient Summary". This is usually because of a generic summary such as "Turkish Drama", "Early Silent Film" or some other short phrase which doesn't sufficiently or uniquely describe the film.

We've had a rash of submissions in the last few months with generic images and summaries, and have asked moderators to be more strict in approving such films. Basically, we'll accept anything, but a decent summary and film image are compulsory.
I will try to resubmit those even though it's very difficult to provide proper descriptions for those one minute shorts, there are also no posters available so the best I can do is provide some sort of generic silent shorts poster for all of them.
