    • Link to Wikipedia page

      I wish you had a link to the Wikipedia page of each movie. I always do this.

      • Recommended lists (sorted by ratio (favourited / checked) movies)

        I'd like to search for lists that contain maximum number of movies favourited by me, normalized by total number of checked (by me) movies in that list. So the formula of "list compatibility rating" could be:
        R = (F / C+10)
        R - list compatibility rating
        F - number of favourited movies in the list
        C - number of checked movies in the list
        +10 - normalizing summand

        I think this feature of recommended lists would be a great companion to existing movie recommendations.

        • Allow a "silent" check option, which won't post your check to linked Social Networks.

          I don't always want to tell the world I just checked a movie, whether it's because it's a movie I have already seen ages ago and just remembered to check it, or simply because I don't want to spam my Facebook / Twitter with a 100 checks of shorts.

          It'd be nice to have a way to check a movie without posting it to linked social networks.

          • Customize with FULL integration of PERSONAL lists added to WATCHLIST -- Huge Bang For Buck!

            Adding a list to the watchlist is essentially adopting a personal list. When I add a list to my watchlist it should be treated just like an official list. For instance...

            1. A movie's INFO tab shows all the official lists which include that film. This should be expanded to show if the movie is in any lists added to my watchlists.

            2. The Progress page should have an additional tab, "Watchlists", which shows my progress on any lists in my watchlist.

            3. Official lists give trophies but completing an "unofficial list" would award an "emblem" which would essentially be…

            • Replace the old TV set in the header with something more "cinematographic"

              Not that I don't like it but it seems to me a bit out of place, like using an old radio as main icon for www.icheckoperas.com. A film camera, just an example, would feel more appropriate.

              • Select a "VIEWED ON" tag for each film to tell us where you saw it ! (this tags each film as: CINEMA, TV, NETFLIX, NOWTV etc)

                By adding this feature, other people can filter lists on services they use (eg NETFLIX UK)
                You attract more users.
                because the searches on Netflix are rubbish, everyone wins.

                • Allow users to flag comments as spam.

                  Comments like these:
                  http://www.icheckmovies.com/profiles/comments/?user=expletivedleted
                  or any other kind of spam could be flagged by other users, and if a comment is flagged say 5 or so times it would be collapsed. The comment could still be expanded and read, but it would be marked as spam and it would no longer clutter up the pages with obnoxious self-promotion.

                  • Track how many unlisted movies users add.

                    Great site. I have a suggestion. You should somehow show how many
                    movies a person has added to the website (how many IMDB links added i guess). It would probably generate competition - movie fans can be very competitive and love the attention :) Just a thought

                    • Change the list watchlist feature to a follow list model.

                      Allow users to follow lists and get updates on changes of that list via private messages (same as the IMDb toplist updates) or in the activity stream.

                      The watchlist for lists will be replaced with 'Lists you follow' and you'll receive updates via private messages or in your activity stream when a list has been updated if you choose to in your settings.

                      For the people that don't like this idea: You'll still be able to use the 'Lists you follow' page as a watchlist. The name is just different and you'll receive an update if one of the lists…

                          • Integrate with Netflix queue and Amazon Instant Video watchlist

                            Your To-Watch list could be imported into your Netflix queue and Amazon watchlist, then all you'd have to do on those sites is put them in the order you want to see them. Right now I manage my film lists on multiple sites and it would save me time.

                            • More detailed stats on dashboard

                              Would be nice if the stats were more detailed.

                              e.g:

                              Checks: 1500
                              Official: 500
                              Movies: 1200
                              Tv episodes: 300
                              Rank: #6100
                              Rank title: Actor

                              I know that checks in eps from tv series does not affect the official rank,
                              but affects the total number of checks, masking the true number, this is the reason why I dont check eps,
                              but I want to. So, it would be great if the stats were more detailed.

                              that way I'll always know the answer to: "how many movies have you seen?"

                              • Add an option to choose country (and language) for a.k.a. titles

                                Because many of us don't live in English speaking countries so most of the time it is not English titles that we see around.

                                  When exporting lists in csv format, runtimes are not included. I expect this would be easy to add, and of interest to users.

                                    Now that IMDb removed their decade lists, iCM should fill the gap by having its own decade lists based on favorite/check ratio.

                                    • Allow people to download a screensaver based on films they've seen

                                      On Last.fm they have a dynamic screensaver download where your screensaver is a selection of album art based on what you listen to. I think if it could be done here with the film posters (maybe with loved films getting a priority) it could be a cool secondary feature.

                                      • Show if film is included in any watchlists in INFO tab (in addition to official lists)

                                        Currently a movie's INFO tab includes a display of all official lists which include the film. There is also a link to show all lists (official and personal) that include the movie.

                                        New feature: I would like to see, in addition to the official lists, if the film is included in any of the lists that have been added to the "watchlist". These lists would be automatically displayed below the official lists. This would let the user quickly see if the movie is part of a list that interests them.

                                        • Filter Movies on Lists by other lists. e.g. See what movies cross two or more specific lists.

                                          Basically if you are working on two lists. You'll want finish checking movies that are on both list. So by being able to filter, let says the 501 Must See Movies with the IMDb 250, You'll be able to find out what movie you'll need to progress on the list at the same speed.
