  1. Let people vote on their favourite covers

    The new system for covers is good but for a lot of cases a really nice poster has been replaced by the original theatrical release which is a lot less appealing. If multiple covers were uploaded and there was a system for people to vote for which one they'd like to be displayed, I think the system would work much better.

  2. Filter unchecked movies in favorited movies of another user

    Filter one's unchecked movies in favorited movies of another user. This will allow us to check the movies which most likely one likes from the nighbor's movie. This way one need not wait only for recommendations.

  3. Make it possible to tick films again when you've re-watched them.

    There are a lot of films you're likely to watch more than once. If it were possible to tick a film again when you've re-watched it, it would help users to keep track of what they've watched and when. It would also allow friends to see all that you've been watching - not just newly ticked films.

  4. Add tabs to organize the favorited personalised lists

    Similar tabs to the official ones could be introduced. Certainly I would like it very much if it would be possible to organize my favorited lists in categories like director filmography/awards/country list/general all time best lists/...

  5. More official lists!

    I find I often don't watch films because they are not on official watch lists, important films that are on many great lists that have not been made official yet. I hate letting this control my viewing and have been trying to fight it, watching films that are not official and then find that I'm falling down the chart. I just think that a real lover of cinema should not be limited to so few films. So, MORE official lists!!! It is the lists that brought us to this site, not social features, even though they are nice also. :)

  7. Create a filmography system

    Much like movie lists, start adopting filmographies (grouping these seperately from lists) and handing out a different type of award for them. A vane in different colours for example.

  8. Show similar movies based on most overlapping checked/favorited

    On an individual movie page, I think there should be an automatically generated listing of "similar" movies based on the most frequently overlapping movies; i.e. the movies that have been most frequently checked and/or favorited along with the movie on the page by a single user.

  9. When you watch a movie on your watchlist, it should be automatically removed once you check it

    As of now, "Remove from Watchlist" has to be clicked separately, in addition to checking it

  10. Create more lists that analyse icheckmovies' data.

    "Most disliked", "Most polarizing" (ie highest count of likes+dislikes), "Most listed" (in the most toplists), etc.

  11. create charts to show progress over time

    if the data is kept, it would be nice to show how you've moved up in rankings (or progressed in a list) over time in a line chart

  12. Dedicate more time to supply the movie artwork for individual titles.

    After users add new movies from imdb, unfortunately the film artwork does not come along with it. While it's understandable that with so many movies it's difficult to make sure that "Winter Beast" gets its just due there are also new films that don't have cover art (like Bad Teacher). But in both cases it's just a bummer sometimes to look at your list of recently checked movies and see a few with no real 'identity' in the list, even though on imdb the art is readily available.

  13. Separate useless personal lists from quality ones

    There are ~2500 personal lists on ICM now which are interesting only to their creators, e.g. "Watched in 2011", "Watchlist", "My favourite films" and so on. People created them because they don't know how to use specialized ICM features for such tasks (Owned movies. Watchlist)

    Several measures that can reduce their number or hide them completely:
    1. Appoint moderators from power users who would regulate tags of personal lists and put useless ones in distinct hideable group.
    2. Add privacy option to lists to access only by link.
    3. Directly discourage creating of such lists on the "Add a list"…

  14. Improve comment system

    Some things that bug me about the current comment system:

    - I don't know when someone replies to my comment
    - It's impossible to read them chronologically (not only is it ordered the wrong way, I have to read down to up, then scroll down, go to the next page, rinse, repeat).
    - Quoting someone might be nice
    - (maybe a bit too far out) liking comments and or mentioning people would improve discussion, but then again I just like the whole social/interaction/discussion part of the site. Might be a bit too much of a sidetrack of the site's goals.

  15. Intergrate TV-series

    Make it easy to check episodes, with a great overwiev of series and seasons. Make it easier to track our progress on tv shows. But don't count the checks along with the movies.

  16. Improve the search algorithm

    The search needs to be smarter and prioritized. Example: If you search "Secret of My Success", the Michael J. Fox movie is not returned because one of the S's is a dollar sign. With only one character off, the algorithm should return the movie as a result.
