[NEW FEATURE] Keyboard Shortcuts!



We're pleased to announce one of the top 5 requested features by our users: keyboard shortcut navigation!

You can now leave the mouse behind and get serious with your ranking efficiency by using the keyboard to rank movies, mark movies that you haven't seen, and undo your mistakes.

When you hit a keyboard shortcut key for the first time, you'll pop up our guide which explains the control scheme.

Our standard controls are:

  • Left arrow key: Choose the movie on the left

  • Right arrow key: Choose the movie on the right

  • <Shift> + left arrow key : Mark you haven't seen the movie on the left

  • <Shift> + down arrow key: Mark you haven't seen either movie

  • <Shift> + right arrow key: Mark you haven't seen the movie on the right



and for the gamers out there who are used to the WASD control scheme from years of playing first person shooters, our alternate controls are:

  • a: Choose the movie on the left

  • d: Choose the movie on the right

  • z: Mark you haven't seen the movie on the left

  • x: Mark you haven't seen either movie

  • c: Mark you haven't seen the movie on the right



You can also hit "u" to undo the last matchup, if you made a rash decision that you desperately want to reconsider.

At any time, you can hit "?" (the question mark key) to bring up the guide for review, and close it up when you're ready to rank with the elite.

Of course, if you don't want to use the shortcuts, you can choose to disable them entirely and go back to your mouseketeering.

Enjoy!
