This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Name reference view

I used to be able to view my - and other - IMDb pages the old way. The way the filmography - and page - used to appear. But today - 12/14/17 - I noticed I can't do that anymore. Even after I click reference view, it doesn't change the way my - other - pages appear. Is this some sort of permanent change IMDb made? And, we can no longer view the page the way it appeared years ago, which I always preferred. Can someone help me?

Reference view not working properly

The name reference view is basically the old view of IMDb name pages
which was last updated in 2010.
It is unsupported, full of bugs,
runs 24-36 hours behind the rest of the site,
and lacks any of the features launched in the last 7+ years.
It is not recommended for general use.
Our agreement back in 2010 was that we would allow reference view
to continue as long as the software powering it was still running
(and we would make no updates to the view itself).
 We expected this agreement to last a year at most,
the fact it has lasted over 7 years is a happy or unhappy accident,
depending upon your point of view.
Unhappy in our case.
