Help make The Auteurs totally awesome

I asked for this before, but I would really, really enjoy the ability to reorder my favorite films and auteurs/cast members as I please, instead of having the ones I became a fan of last show up first, as it is at the moment.

Also, page numbers should be added to the top of forum threads as well. I’ll keep asking for this forever, I think…

I second Augusto A.’s comment, would love it If I was able to reorder my favorite auteurs/cast list.

@Augusto and Salem

I was actually just asking one of our lead developers about that earlier today. It’s on our list of upgrades for a final version, and hopefully we can it have ready to go in the near future!

Guys, regarding the ordering of favorite auteurs. Some of you may remember we used to have this back in the day, but once we added pagination to the favorite directors (necessary because some have hundreds), it made this considerably more complicated, and we haven’t had a chance to revisit it.

However one slight change is coming tonight which is that the order of favorite auteurs currently goes (more or less) from earliest favorite to latest favorite (opposite of films). Tonight a deploy is coming that reverses this. Technically this makes it possible to control the order by un-fanning and re-fanning your top 10. A pain I know, but it will be at least 6 months before we have time to do anything more.

AWESOME! :)

For the record, I had a dream last night where the ratings system was converted to 10-stars and half stars and I have never been under so much stress in my life. I knew I’d have to go back and re-rate all of the films I’d seen and even have to re-watch some for clarification.

This is a terrible idea and I would like to speak out as a major opponent to a ten-star system. I say this confidently both consciously and unconsciously.

Possible options for new My Style images

Blue Velvet

The Great Dictator

Medium Cool

Pan’s Labyrinth

(Apocalypse Salem suggested I post them here ’stead of the film and cast member thread)

And Block option or Ignore option would be a great addition. Also half stars when rating a film would be most helpful.

second the ignore option

If anyone could make a style image for Bonnie and Clyde or Harold and Maude would be greatful (I am not computer savy)

Some profile banners I made during the creative days @ The Auteurs (do you remember the times?)

No copyright.

Half stars would be great

Great banners Grey Daisies!

I remember you using the Edie Sedgwick/Warhol banner a while back when html was still allowed.

Here are a few more that I made for fun a while ago. (not all turned out that good)

I would so add the Waters one.

The banners we have now leave something to be desired.

Would like to see a way to recommend a movie to a friend. This could be just a button and it sends as a message to other members or through e-mail. Often I see a great movie that I found from MUBI, and I rate the movie and want to recommend to a few people and don’t currently have a way to do this.

Thanks MUBI,

Josh

how about the ability to create lists, etc. as a private draft before posting publicly.

kind of like the ability to make amazon wish lists public or private.

just thinking out loud on this one.

↑ That would be a good idead (and a PREVIEW function for lists as well!).

I want to suggest an independent section for SW&A (Simultaneous Watching and Analysis) in the topics bar of the forum. In this way it will be easy to follow past threads and give continuity to discussions and weekly events.
Thanks

A way to organize your own ratings of movies and other people’s ratings. Otherwise it is just a long list and is impossible to wade through. Could just be organized by number of stars or when rated.

Well, I’ll contribute to this one as well:

I was looking forward to a more organized and convenient way of searching films and / or rating them, bookmarking as want-to-sees and the like. i don’t know if this has been asked in the early pages of the threads but it would be pretty cool to FINALLY see tablets of search engines for years, running times, countries, directors, genres etc. You get the picture and I’m hoping for some backup with this!

That has been suggested before but of course has never been done. I don’t know much about programming but I guess It has to be difficult to carry on technically in relation to the today-architecture of the site since it’s obvious an excelent idea and I don’t see another reason to not put it at work.

I’m down with that.

I’d also like the favorite auteurs list to be randomized like the favorite films are on your profile page.

Er, what’s up with the names of countries in other languages? Schweiz in one film, Switzerland in another. Etats-Unis in one film, USA in another. Tailandia for the film Tropical Malady, and that’s not even at least in the Thai language!!! Are you guys aware of the simple concept of CONSISTENCY?

I know, not all of us are native English speakers and have English as a second language, I also speak for myself on this one, but English is the most widely used language at least in this forum. I think we’ve already established that. I’m pretty sure there are a bunch of cliques here who use this website and converse in their own native languages. That’s completely understandable. But, if you want to reach other non-English-speaking users, there’s a translation toolbar for that.

Please change this back to the way it is. I just saw France being translated to various languages in one go: Franca, Francia, Frankreich. Really!? It seems so unprofessional.

On the newly added film Master of Ballantrae it should be freedom from the English not British

Can we have Anno Hideaki’s page updated? Most of his best work isn’t even on the page, and there is no photo etc. In any case, it’s a pretty sorry sight for someone nearly of the same calibre as Miyazaki (evil cousin, as I like to say).

There are no film stills visible on the recently added film page…?
