Compare ratings - how to see titles that were rated similarly?

When comparing ratings with another person, for some reason it doesn't show you the titles that were rated similarly. It seems pretty dumb that they would leave this out, so I'm asking here first to see if I'm missing something and they didn't actually leave it out.

Hi Shanks -

Currently the profile page doesn't directly display the titles that you rated similar to another user, it just displays the actual number of ratings that you have in common.

However, the profile page will display a handful of titles you rated higher.

Shanks,

A user can see the titles that they and another user have rated similarly. However, it does require more work.

For instance, let's suppose I wanted to compare my ratings against those of Col Needham (IMDB Founder and CEO). If I entered the following link, I would get an extended version of what is shown below; you would get something different. The three columns with stars at the top are respectively my rating, the IMDb rating and Col Needham's rating.

1. Go to another person's profile page [http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/]
2. Click "See all 99999 ratings ยป" This will bring you to their ratings page. [http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/ra...]
3. Select the compact view by click on the right most icon next to "View:". [http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/ra...]
4. Select "Your rating" from the drop down menu next to "Sort by:". [http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1000000/ra...]

Brilliant! You do indeed learn something new each day.

It'd be great to get a short cut link to that from someone's profile.

Yes, it would be great to have a short cut link to this. It would also be helpful to be able to export all three ratings columns. Currently only the user rating and the IMDb rating are exported.

If you add "&my_ratings=restrict" to the end of the link you get only the titles that both you and the other user have rated.

We really need to thank the IMDb technical staff. They implemented this capability. It just needs better documentation. [smile]
