(...) the main difference probably is due to a lot of 2000s-2010s movies that aren't in any official lists.
So, have you noticed any change since the adoption of the full 21 Century list? ^_^
Yes I sure did receive a big bump in the rankings and toplist checks after that. Now I am at #561 with 2332 toplist checks. And in the unofficial at #581 with 3872 checks in total.

Currently, I'm 78 slots higher for official checks than for total checks.

You?
I've been watching a load of unofficial shorts lately (mostly experimental/avant-garde stuff), and I just noticed that my official rank and rank based on total checks are now...equal!!

I seem to be the only one that doesn't see the rank for total checks. How do I check that? (no pun intended)

EDIT:

Total checks rank: #1705 (2836 total checks)
Official checks rank: #1569 (1823 official checks)

I don't check TV series or episodes.

Top List: 4710 (#118)
Total: 7852 (#160)

Don't check TV episodes or series. I see a fair number of new films in the cinema (60 so far this year, not bad given where I live) and of course most of these won't end up as official checks, or I won't know it at any rate. Also lots of stuff on TCM that just happens to be on - b series from the 30s and 40s aren't often on toplists. And cartoons...
Here's to the fools who dream.

Yes, actually. Look at the average run time of them. I have watched nothing but short films this entire month. Starting with the shortest running (<1 minute) to the current ones at ~18 minutes.

Also, I found music videos on IMDB, so I checked a lot of those that I had seen long ago.

My total checks rank is too high for me to bother finding it, but my official check to total checks ratio is 75.09% which I find quite amusing. Having this few checks compared to the majority of the people here, I try to knock down the "essentials" first. Top rated films overall (critics and people), most official lists, IMDB lists, favorites etc. Generally what people talk about and/or reccomend, hence them actually being in a official list.

Most of my unofficial checks are from pre major filmmaking interest ~2011

In 2017 I've seen 112 new unchecked movies, where 17 of them are unofficial. This calculates to 84.82% of them being official checks.

Official checks: 2,089 = 1,124th place
Total checks: 23,645 = 5th place


That's how statistics look like when you watch everything. Even removing TV-episodes, less than 10% are on official lists.

Wow. A 1,119-slot gap will be hard to beat.

SiH13 said his checks are 75.09% official...maybe my percentage would be interesting to know, since being the same rank official and unofficial (#120) makes me almost like a control variable here. ;)

54.37% official

Climbed up massively in the Official ranks over the last three months, but have only edged slightly ahead in the total check ratings.

Makes sense, I guess, given that something like 95% of the films that I watch are Official these days. :mellow:

Under the "People" tab, select "Charts" then in the order by menu once there, select "checks" It won't list your "ranking" but, it just takes a little counting to figure that out

I think I might win the "disparity" award...

Official ranking: #2494 (1545 top list checks)
Unofficial ranking: #266 (6665 total checks)

Yes, I check TV episodes. Usually not until I've completed the series, but there are exceptions. Plus all those "hey - I'm drunkenly watching this music video. I should check it!" checks.
