Custom Lists: Beta Testing

Tools    





Personally I generally try their titles in other languages (from the Also Known As tag on their IMDb page). Others might have better tricks but that's been the one that's helped me out a few times.
This is indeed also a good alternative, though hopefully the new tool thingy should solve everything.

On the actual TMDb site it lets you add a filter for year, but their autocomplete doesn't seem to do that, sadly.



I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Yes, this worked for me with a few films, but not for ones where the original title was in a different alphabet.

Nah, it's not you, the autocomplete can be a little funky (it's from an external source, so there's only so much I can do).

From similar previous reports, though, I built a tool that allows you to post a TMDb or IMDb URL and have it look up the film from that. It's not quite ready for public consumption (I need to make sure adding films that way checks for duplicates and list size limits), but I've just added it for you, specifically, so you can give it a quick test. Have another go, if you would, and let me know if that works (and if it's intuitive and all that).
That did work, straight away! Thanks



It's impossible to add M (1931). It doesn't show up in the search bar if I type "m" and then the spacebar twice. I'm in the process of making a prototype list of my top 100 (transferred from RYM) but M's not showing up.

Type "M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder" in the box and "M (1931)" comes up as the first option to add.

Mumble is awful!

Thanks. What about Ran (1985), though?

As noted above, I have an alternative tool for this, it's just not quite ready yet. It's very much in Beta, as the title suggests. Stay tuned, won't be too long.



Okay, I've thrown together some data integrity checks (for duplicates and adding films while already capped at 100), so the feature in question should now be available for everyone. You'll find it here:



From there you'll be shown an overlay where you can paste an IMDb or TMDb link and it should be able to find the movie that way.

Let me know if that works for everyone/makes sense. Need to make sure this works well soon since we'll need it for the countdown ballots and stuff, too.

This is pretty cool. Thanks!



Use "Ran - Os Senhores da Guerra".

Thanks for helping out. I was a little confused since your first reply was so quick so I didn't think you saw the next one. How'd you know to use the Spanish title?

I didn't know but longer titles are possibly more likely to be uniquer
And I only flit on and off Mofo at times so don't necessarily see things for a while sometimes.
