Hello, I visited the Bottom 100 list today and I noticed enourmous changes since the last time I saw it. The "best film" on the list used to have barely a 2.8 rating, but now the number 100 is occupied by Material Girls (2006) with a very high rating of 4.2, The list still claims that you need a minimum of 1,500 votes to be considered. However most of the horrible less voted movies have dissapeared.

Was there an unnanounced change in the minimum vote threeshold or how is it possible to have so huge changes in so little time?

I did not see anything on the list below 10,000 votes on a spot check of 25 titles

I think this is more a representative list with that minimum. A movie with only 1500 votes may not be available for viewing anymore. So the bottom 100 would be more useful with a 10 thou min.

As Pencho15 requested:

For:
Lowest Rated Movies
Bottom 100 as voted by IMDb Users
https://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom

Please change this sentence from:
To be included on the list, a movie must receive ratings from at least 1,500 users.

To:
To be included on the list, a movie must receive ratings from at least 10,000 users.

... or whatever threshold is currently in place.

This post was apparently marked answered without actually being answered.

The change Pencho describes seems to have occurred in July 2018.
