Good choice. The boundaries are too thin, so better accept them.

“How can you justify adding 30-second shorts from 1902 to your database, but not Breaking Bad? What sense does that make?”
I guess someone got pissed with all them Lumieres I added :lol: But overall this is the right decision IMO.

Can't rate on Criticker atm. When I submit my score it keeps "submitting". Anyone else with this problem?

Went back to Criticker after IMDb's latest self-mutilation and had to wonder why I ever left. Being inactive there has left me with a backlog of about 600 movies ranked on IMDb that I need to add to the Criticker database though. :wacko:

Well, one short answer is that there are too many titles missing

Users have the option to add missing films as they check them, like with ICM -- I've added a great many titles to both sites (although Criticker is a bit more labour intensive on that front). I used to keep up with it before and I'll catch up with it again soon.

Yeah, I need to be in the right mood to spend the time to add a film to Criticker, which does prevent me from doing so, usually. But, at the same time, I appreciate that they are a bit more rigorous to do so, to ensure basic minimum quality standards (though why they don't have things automatically update like icm is a bit baffling). I also like that they're very strict on excluding television shows.

The used to not have TV, and you can filter them out pretty effectively.

ICM also doesn't have an auto update from imdb, though the imdb updates are more direct queries. Criticker is more separate probably because they're a) competing more directly and b) using more info. It's also why imports take a few days and info isn't auto added. They're putting extra layers in the process to keep from getting blowback from imdb.

The one thing that bugs me is that Criticker considers the year to be the film's general release (where?) as opposed to its actual debut, which is IMDb's logic.

I think Criticker's logic is first public release anywhere. So it can be a limited release and it doesn't matter what country, but a film that screens once at TIFF or Venice in September, for example, and then doesn't actually get released anywhere until the following year will have different release dates on the two sites.

Functionally, since years are only changed by user request with justification, it only really applies to wide US releases after previous festival release(s). Most of the Imdb vs. criticker discrepancies are actually just Imdb changing the year and criticker still having Imdb's old year.

I still don't get the Tier-numbers. I just checked the ratings of friends for two movies. I noticed at A Colt is My Passport it says "bal3x 70 T7" and at It Happened in Broad Daylight it says "bal3x 71 T9". How can you explain that a difference of 1 point (or 0.1 on the IMDb-scale) means a difference of two Tier-points for bal3x?! :wacko:
Also, when you go to a movie you haven't rated yet, it gives you your PSI. For me it often says "70 Great T8". When I actually rate it 70, it says "70 Good T7". How can my Tier-points for the same rating change by rating a single movie? :unsure:

I guess it means he rated so many films 7 that it maxed out tier 7 and tier 8 (maybe tier 6 too ;) ). But yes, it's really absurd.

However, I know it's been a while since I used the site, but shouldn't 71 be at a higher tier, as he liked it more?

Eh... it is. His 71 is Tier 9 and his 70 is Tier 7. See my above post.

What I meant is, isn't tier 7 better than tier 9. If tier 9 is better than tier 7 that makes no sense what so ever.

At Criticjer Tier 10 is the best and Tier 1 (or is there a 0) is the worst.

Tier 10 is top 10%, Tier 9 another 10% etc., and they are recalculated every time you rate anything. In some cases when one rating covers more than 10%, an algorithm can miss a tier - bal3x rated more than 2000 movies 70. It's explained here: https://www.criticker.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3945

Rounding. It would appear the way your tiers work out your 70s are right near a point where your tier changes so rating an extra movie makes the rounding go the other way and changes the tier.

That's because you don't really have Tier 8. Rating another movie 70 would place it somewhere between your top 23% and top 49% (majority in top 40% decile, hence Tier 7). I guess that first number is responsible for the predicted Tier 8 (top 30%), but then it's assigned to Tier 7 as every other 70. I rate using full 0-100 scale, and it almost never happened to me.

Like bal3x, I have a lot of 70's as well. It's my most common rating.

You can see every rating at my profile page has a color and there are tiers assigned to them.

Is that something that can be changed in the settings perhaps?

Speaking of Criticker, I'm unable to import my IMDb ratings for quite a while now, I've been in touch with them, they said they're looking into the issue..
