    • Incorporate "challenges" into ICM

      By challenges I mean month-long film-watching contests each dedicated to different cinema niches. Challenge have a set of related lists, and only films from them counts. Usually such contests generate a lot of feedback to related films and lists and motivate participants to explore obscure areas of world cinema. An accent on challenges will be a huge bonus to ICM's reputation as a place for open-minded film viewers.

      I took the concept from ICM Board, where this activity is very popular, but some other movie forums also hold challenges. Another model is Karagarga's 'Master of the Month' series.

      Implementation: a…

      • More personal stats + improving neighbours

        These features may be very server intensive, but anyways, here are some examples:

        - # of Checks per week/month
        - # of Checks per decade or year (in a graph or in some other way)
        - A top 3 of the lists the user has been most actively checking movies from over the past months.

        I don't know much about how the neighbours system works, but maybe more weight should be given to a movie which two members have favorited, but very few other people have favorited. This way members who both like a certain type of obscure movie type…

        • Create a website-layout that is easier to use on mobile devices.

          OS specific apps are nice, but designing the website-layout in such a way that it displays better on mobile devices (tablets and phones) is perhaps a faster solution.

            • Update names for recent foreign films that now have an English title.

              There is a sizable issue that I've noticed with newer foreign films that initially had their Romanized names imported in, but have since gotten a proper English name.

              Example: http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/sseo-ni/ vs. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1937339/

              • Make it possible to create movie checking goals

                The idea is basically to have a simple goal of how many movies you aim to check (similar to the reading goal on Goodreads). This could be on a yearly or monthly basis.

                I think the idea should be as simple as possible, but you could make it more customizable, too. I'd say you should only include feature films, but you could allow yourself other types. Or you could make it "in <x official lists" or something similar.

                In any case, it works well for books and would presumably be a relatively small feature to introduce.

                • Allow for 4 or 5 star ranking system.

                  Instead of "like" "Dislike" or leaving it blank, I wouldn't mind a system that allows me to rate a movie after I watched it. It would also be interesting to see what movie has the highest "star" and lowest "star" rating.

                  • The ability to update a movies IMDB information

                    Some movies were added to ICM before their release date/title was finalized. There should be a button that allows the movies major information to be synced with what's currently on IMDB.

                      Improve navigation so that one can check on a movie on a list, then back up and:
                      –land to where one was, without having to go back to the beginning and check "see all" after one comes to 50 items;
                      –stay on one section of the lists (e.g. critics) without having to see all the IMDb stuff;
                      – stay in the settings one has chosen (e.g. unchecked by year of release)

                      • Allow more than one alternative title for films

                        Many foreign films are known by more than one name in English. Example Bergman's 'Gycklarnas afton' has the aka 'The Naked Night' but it is widely known as 'Sawdust and Tinsel'.

                        • Fix the quick search 'suggestions'

                          It does not work well.
                          Try searching for "Ong-bak" and you will get zero quick suggestions. Try searching for "ong bak" and you'll get "Ong-bak (2003)" as suggestion #1 and "Bus Stop (1956)" as suggestion #2.
                          Needs fixing!

                              It would be great to be able to import your own personal rating for a film from IMDb. Moreover, if we could see what our friends gave certain films, that would be even better.

                                  Allow users to make multiple private favorite lists when using the "favorite" option. A small drop down menu could give users the options to add movies to a specific list of their own.

                                  Eg.: "Mark movie as favorite in list...
                                  Favorite Films
                                  Favorite Animation
                                  Favorite 1930s"
                                  etc.

                                    • Make it possible, when comparing profiles, to look at another user's progress on unofficial lists, not just official ones.

                                      Not each of the thousands of unofficial lists, but have a button on the user's profile page "view his/her progress on your favorite/watchlist lists".

                                      • Create a tag for short films

                                        Having a separate "medatype:short" tag, instead of grouping all shorts with feature films under "mediatype:movie", would often make searching/filtering easier.

                                        • Display movie discription / blurb when viewing a movie's page.

                                          I don't know if this is easily do-able, but it would be very nice to be able to view a quick description of each movie, without having to click through to view the information on IMDB. Is it possible to display IMDB's blurb directly in ICheckMovies, or pull this data from elsewhere, such as Amazon?
