... but are afraid to know

Just a general thread for IMDb questions, comments, idle gossip, chit chat, bug queries, etc.

So, I can't seem to rate movies on IMDb tonight. Anyone else having issues?

Yeah it was mentioned in another thread. It's only in reference view, which doesn't bode well for those of us who still use it.

okay, thanks -- no idea which other thread fit, so that's why I started this one

I don't remember where it was. This thread has good potential, though, imdb is always making something worse.

I'm not sure if I'm annoyed or impressed that you didn't go with "But were afraid to ask" as the tagline. But it's definitely one of those two. :P

This might be a sign that they are finally going to can Reference View. That's a shame, but I guess I don't really use the site much these days anyway unless I am looking for specific information that I can't get off iCM or Letterboxd.

And I don't know if it's the quickest way to do it, but I rated the latest two films that I saw on IMDb by clicking on the director's filmography, sorting by votes and then rating from there.

for a while I was using my phone (yeah, I actually traded in the cuneiform tablet and stylus for a 'smart'phone) and couldn't be bothered logging into IMDb - well "for a while" was like three views - but I got so annoyed with the bs alternative that I gave up and logged in

VIVA REFERENCE VIEW! (I'm an IMDb Luddite and I don't care who knows it!)

So, going to try Sol's workaround - anything's better than losing reference view!

see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics ... ate-titles

another reported work around is to use the IMDb Android App

I stopped using reference view a few years ago, I was pretty religious about reference view but then it just got annoying to use. I hate all the emphasis on pointless images and star meters, and the endless scrolling for useful information but I’ve just gotten used to it now.

I think it's because it affected the mobile site as well.
