Ratings: An additional way to use the rating system

Okay. Let us see 'ratings' in a way which, perhaps, only a handful of people will see it.

The top rated movies list on the site, has the option of marking a title as 'Seen'. Thus, counting towards the 'You Have Seen' section, which also has the option of hiding all 'Seen' titles. I was just thinking, can something similar be done in the 'Profile' section, in which all 'Seen' titles can be marked without the use of the 'Stars'? Also allowing comparison of titles with other users on the site?

What about a 'Thumbs Up' and 'Thumbs Down' feature? Google Search cards has this feature, don't they?

On a side note, can the 'Search' functions on the site be equipped with a function to search for 'IMDb User Profiles' as well?

Thanks.

P.S. Is there a list of all IMDb Staff members? There is a vote section which counts IMDb staff member votes for a title.

You can convert any list into a Seen list, and the ratings star gets the extra Seen feature you find on the Top 250. Just alter the URL, from:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls007030233/
to
https://www.imdb.com/seen/ls007030233/

Hey... are you one of IMDb's Staff members? I don't think I would want to ask my next question if that is not the case.

Just a fellow user, not a staffer. But staff reads these messages too.
