Updates to Advanced Search

As Col referenced in his earlier post (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0),we're pleased to announce that today we've launched some updates to the Advanced Search pages. As the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content, IMDb is continuously making improvements to our website and apps based on our customers’ feedback and the usage of our many features. The changes to the search pages are as follows.

The Advanced Search page has a new layout with links to Advanced Title Search, Advanced Name Search, and the Collaborations & Overlaps search. The Title Text Search and Name Text Searches have been temporarily removed, but will return. The list of Browse By links has been reduced to eliminate duplication on the page.

The Advanced Name Search is built using a new search system that lays the groundwork for searching across more of the IMDb content in the future. The ability to get results that include or exclude list of celebs is not included on the Advanced Name Search page, this is a temporary limitation and will be returned to the page in the future.

The Title Text Search and Name Text Searches have been temporarily removed, but will return.
When?  Next week, next month, next quarter, next year, some day in the future beyond 2018? Thanks.  I've been missing it since well before you posted.

Thanks for the update Chris.  With the stoppage of updates to the FTP files, and the removal of the text search (even though it only sort-of worked), there is no longer any way to easily find data on the site in the section(s) I like to update. I will anxiously await its return (hopefully with way better search results).

It really sucks that you can't search within the "quotes" category anymore. I used that all the time. Why remove that function?

IMDb is continuously making improvements to our website and apps based on our customers’ feedback and the usage of our many features
Anyone else find quotes such as these insulting and funny in a gallows humor kind of way? Every time you do an "improvement" these days, it is in actual fact a nerf; the removal of something useful, without a proper replacement, and completely and utterly disregarding the customers' feedback about the usefulness of those features, as well as a reskin (most of the time looking worse than before) of the remaining features...

Talking of the remaining features; you do a massive "update" to the advanced search, but you don't first fix the bugs in the advanced search, like the keywords search in the advanced title search? You can be glad you're running a pretty much unique service on the web, because if you were selling something, you wouldn't survive long running your site like that...

this is a temporary limitation and will be returned to the page in the future
Tip for the future; fix temporary limitations in an internal beta program before running them out to your customers! In a world with useful tools like VMware and Hyper-V available, as well as the decades-old ability to duplicate a database for testing purposes, doing testing on live servers if beyond belief!

Change is fine, as long as it is change that doesn't impose limits upon what was possible before, as such you should never change anything before you've actually tested it, and finished implementing the things that worked before, and that you intend to have available in the future.

The number of complaints coming along on this site (which isn't exactly easy to find for the average IMDb user, since it is run on a completely different site than IMDb and a such not intuitive to understand has anything to do with IMDb) every time you do an update, crying out for useful features that has suddenly disappeared, should speak books to you that the way you're doing these things now is the WRONG way to do it! Simplifying the administration on your part is a noble cause, but getting there shouldn't be something your customers have to suffer through. Do it, but do it in the background; get all the bits and pieces ready in the new system, test it internally, make a closed beta for contributors and super users, etc. - get all of it working, THEN roll it out full and complete to your customers, and fix the few remaining bugs, which of course cannot always be anticipated, quickly afterwards.

Currently you're just pushing out limitation upon limitation, and new designs worse than the previous, saying; "this is necessary, but we will fix it 'soon'(tm)" without even giving even the simplest clue as to WHEN we can expect the site to be working as intended again.

Please, for the love of movies and your precious customers (we should be priority #1, after all!), roll back everything you've done in the last couple of months, continue working on your vision internally, and give it to us complete and working when it is actually working!

You know the context from https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0 ... these are very unusual circumstances, sorry.  My reply yesterday on that thread highlights some of the enhanced features which have launched as part of this work ... it is not all slash-and-burn.

The clock is ticking on the closure of all the old systems on Sunday and we have had to make many difficult decisions across over 210 systems and site features during this year.  The alternative in each case (and frankly the path many companies may have been tempted to take) would have been to simply close down everything on the old systems -- personally I have been on the receiving end of exactly this kind of decision on many sites and apps over the years.  Instead, the team have worked super-hard to do the best we can in each of the 210+ cases.  Yes, there are some permanent simplifications, but we feel they are still for the best. Yes, there are many temporary inconveniences, as evidenced even on this very thread, however, when you are temporarily inconvenienced by the removal of a filter or sort option or need to jump to another page to achieve something, please remember the alternative was not having the entire feature at all.  

Thanks for your understanding, and as always, we refer you to https://contribute.imdb.com/charter and http://www.imdb.com/pressroom/ for the bigger context on IMDb.

No one but you would suffer by you not making the end-of-2017 deadline you had set, obviously prematurely, for yourself as to the discontinuation of the old systems. We, the users, would have preferred it very much if you had continued to run the old systems further until you were actually finished perfecting the new system in the fashion I mentioned above. Nothing you mentioned in the original thread makes the absolute need to turn off the old systems on December 31st apparent or clear to us.

I have also not seen a list of which of the current simplifications, as you call them, are going to be permanent, and which you intend to bring back. And I do not understand the choice of a system that is incapable of doing everything you've been able to do in the past, instead of modernizing and fixing the systems that already worked. Of course, we don't see the back-ends that you see, but what I do see, or at least saw, is a not really that advanced database site that I fail to understand can be difficult to continue to deliver to previous standards, and even improve upon, without removing features.

Why did we just lose the function to use lists in name searches? Seems like a very random, unnecessary and for me personally extremely inconvenient change...

Well, it looks like the Advanced Name Search no longer includes results for people not credited at the series level, when the filmography parameter is that of a television series. Take The Sparticle Mystery, for instance, as it only shows one credit when previously it show multiple pages' worth. I'm disappointed.

Come to think of it, fixing the omissions associated with series-level keywords would be good too. In the past, search results would not include episodes, and it is still the same way. This is problematic when refining searches.

I'd expect http://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=tv_episode&keywords=police&role=nm0005221 to show a lot more than two episodes of Law & Order: SVU, for example. The only reason that two do show up is because of a violation of the IMDb guidelines, whereby a series-level keyword has been "redundantly" applied to an individual episode. Either the policy needs to be revised or the Advanced Title Search should automatically extend keywords of series to the individual episodes belonging to that series, as far as the presentation of search results are concerned.

Hello Jeorj,

    The fix for the Advanced Name Search no longer includes results for people not credited at the series level has just been made to the site.

The reason your title search is not returning more than two episodes is the filter for the 'police' keyword. Removing or changing that keyword returns more results. It would appear that the police keyword is not applied to the majority of episodes that Christopher Meloni as starred in.

Best regards,
Chris.

Hullo,
Back in the good old days, you could go to advanced search and search for certain words or phrases in title trivia. For instance, I could type in 'Philippe Noiret' and find every mention of the actor across all trivia pages on IMDb. Sadly, I can't seem to find the function in the new redesigned advanced search page. Could you help me find it?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Strange glitch in collab search.

I tried to search in collab searching for people that worked on both GTA 5 and Law & Order 1999/1990. Searching is giving me no results but actually it should be plenty of them.
Here are some links
First attempt (no results)
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0203259,tt2103188
and an actual collab that happend
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?roles=nm0902623,nm0577329

somehow it seems to work with gta...
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt2103188,tt0383385
...but with those two titles it seems broken
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0203259,tt0098844
I cannot prove that but i think searches on other titles from law & order universe may be broken too.
So, help me if you can... i'm trying to make a research and its a bit important for me.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IMDb search.

I'm betting it's all television series that aren't handled properly.

Clearly The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) and Mary Tyler Moore (1970) have at least 1 person in common (MTM), but this search comes up empty:
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0054533,tt0065314

This search yielded only their common producer, Norman Lear:
Credited in All in the Family (1971), Maude (1972) 
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0066626,tt0068103
(Maude was a spin-off of AitF, so it's stars definitely appeared in at least 1 episode there.)

Likewise for these, finding only producer Garry Marshall in common:
Credited in Happy Days (1974), Mork & Mindy (1978) 
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0070992,tt0077053
Again, M&M as a spinoff of HD. Guaranteed common cast.

Nothing in common for this parent & spinoff:
Credited in Cheers (1982), Frasier (1993) 
http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0083399,tt0106004

So the search is not digging down to episode-level data? Or cast data?

Did developers misunderstand a prior bug report about NAME collaborations (which are finding TV series in common between 2 people, but not identifying the episode, and they were NOT in an episode together?) And instead now they've restricted TITLE collaborations to some inappropriate higher level of search? (The bugs are really sort of inside out of each other.)

Example:
Most Popular Titles With Reginald Owen And Reginald Gardiner
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?roles=nm0654239,nm0306786
includes  Bewitched (1964–1972)
Reginald Owen is in 2 Episodes: 
- Mc Tavish (1968) ... Ockie
- The Short Happy Circuit of Aunt Clara (1966) ... Ocky
Reginald Gardiner is in 1:
- I Get Your Nannie, You Get My Goat (1967) ... Lord Clive Montdrako

Being in different episodes would not satisfy my definition of collaboration.

The Title collabs are indeed working now.
But this Name collab is stilll a problem, originally reported in another thread:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?roles=nm0654239,nm0306786
includes  Bewitched (1964–1972)
Reginald Owen is in 2 Episodes: 
- Mc Tavish (1968) ... Ockie
- The Short Happy Circuit of Aunt Clara (1966) ... Ocky
Reginald Gardiner is in 1:
- I Get Your Nannie, You Get My Goat (1967) ... Lord Clive Montdrako

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Advanced Search - Soundtracks.

Has the "Advanced Search - Soundtracks" facility been disabled?

I have tried to use it recently and it no longer appears as an option. 

I will be most disappointed if it has gone. I found it very useful. Many of my contributions came about because I used it to

1. locate names of songwriters and performers in Soundtrack items that did not have links.  I then created links for them.

2. locate songs and check that (the correct) songwriters were credited, adding/ correcting songwriters where necessary.

3. locate songwriters and performers of particular songs in order to copy the links into a new Soundtrack item, instead of having to search for names, locate the 'nm0000000' and paste it into a new item (which is a pain when you have a triumvirate of songwriters).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Birthdays.

Try the Advanced Name Search, which you can access by clicking the drop-down menu next to the search-bar, which normally has the word "All" in it, and click on Advanced Search. From there you can search for people by exact date, date ranges, and many other ways. Unfortunately it isn't currently possible to search only for people with acting credits to their name (which would be a welcome addition, IMDb), but it's a start.

I guess the good news is, since I wanted Released titles, I can ask for a minimum number of votes or a minimum rating.

Darn. It must have been a feature rarely used. I wouldn't even remember off the top of my head all the options that were apart of it. This will of course present a drawback to the contribution, error-detecting and bug-detecting processes. Maybe IMDbPro customers will be able to mitigate the loss, though.

1 for IMDb now and 1 for Wayback
took  quick look to compare old and new
did not see much difference
You and others can take more time and see whats what
Maybe go Wayback to a different year ?

We are pleased to announce the addition of birthday searches to advanced name search. Although we had a separate birthday search before, the new one is integrated with advanced name search on http://www.imdb.com/search/name so you can combine the birthday search with many other variables:



Birthdays today -> http://www.imdb.com/search/name?birth_monthday=01-12

Birthdays today for people born in England -> http://www.imdb.com/search/name?birth_monthday=01-12&birth_place=England,+UK 

Birthdays today for people born in England who have been nominated for an Oscar -> http://www.imdb.com/search/name?birth_monthday=01-12&groups=oscar_nominee&birth_place=Englan...

Awesome! A welcome addition! :)

Could you add something similar for movies too? I remember, many, many years ago, the "on this date" pages, which today only contains lists of actors born on that date, used to have lists of movies released on that day. I've been missing that feature ever since. As such, it would be a welcome addition to the Advanced Title Search if you could search for movies released in a MM-DD format as well, listing for instance all movies released on 01-12 (today) any year, not just a specific year, which is all you get today. For extra usefulness it would probably be a good idea to have a dropdown box next to it, allowing you to choose if you want to search global or just a specific country.

Thanks, but it feels like you're tackling all the easy stuff first. That makes sense, but we expect more, quicker.

Could you add something similar for movies too?
This would be best posted as a separate idea, thanks.

We have plenty in-progress, but the bigger items take more time. It does not mean they are not being worked upon.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled quote search option.

I have been using IMDB in my classroom for years, but this year I can't find the "search quotes" option. It has always been in the drop down menu in the search bar. Did it move, or did you just delete this option? Thank you in advance for your response. IMDB is one of my family's favorite go-to sites.
