  • Updated 6 months ago
Included below is our end-of-year message to IMDb's top 250 data contributors for 2018. 

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to IMDb -- every data contribution helps. If anyone outside of the top 250 would like to know their 2018 (only) live item total and position in the complete list, please post a reply here and, for a limited time, we will try to let you know.

Happy New Year 2019 from IMDb! 

[sorry for any errors in the format due to cut-and-paste into Get Satisfaction; a clean copy is also available via the IMDb home page today at https://www.imdb.com/best-of/col-needham-letter-2019/]


Introduction and Thanks

Welcome to the 24th edition of our letter to recognise and celebrate IMDb’s top data contributors of the year, which is again being sent to everyone who contributed data in 2018. If this is your first time reading, I am IMDb’s Founder & CEO and you can catch up on old editions of the letter here, as well as follow IMDb’s future progress in our press room. We passed a number of milestones in 2018 – 20 years as a subsidiary of Amazon.com in April, the 25th anniversary of the launch of our first web site in the summer, and our 28th birthday online in October. It has been quite a year and we are grateful for all of your support. Thank you.

IMDb is built by you, our data contributors, so we want to thank each and every one of you for helping us to grow in another record year, whether you added just one item or whether you were #1 in the top contributor list below. Throughout the year we have worked on making it easier for you to contribute, to process your updates quickly, to be more consistent with our policies, and we started to provide a real-time status on all pending updates (see the new contribution history beta test). 

Earlier this year Amazon’s Jeff Bezos wrote about people’s ever increasing expectations in his annual letter to shareholders - this has particularly resonated with us as we strive to improve IMDb for both our contributor community and our hundreds of millions of monthly visitors worldwide. We are building more new features as well as making existing features more consistently available across all of IMDb’s websites and mobile applications to try to exceed your expectations. We are always thrilled when we are able to bring IMDb to new devices and services; you never know where something you have contributed may appear next.


The Numbers

The table at the end of this message shows the number of approved, non-duplicate data items which the Top 250 have contributed in 2018, including corrections and deletions.  New records have been set in terms of the total number of contributors (600,000+) and overall volume. Yet we still managed to achieve further reductions in the time between submission and publication.

IMDb now includes:

·       Over 5.6 million titles with over 700,000 added in 2018

·       Over 9.5 million names with over 750,000 added in 2018

·       Over 105 million filmography credits with over 14 million added in 2018

·       Nearly 4 million user reviews with over 400,000 added in 2018

More statistics are available in the press room.

Over 14,000 items were required for you to make it onto the Top 250 list this year.


Progress

... From a contributor perspective by Thomas Porter ...

Looking back at the changes over the past year is always a pleasure. Sharing the improvements with you, a real privilege. Whether you’re a dedicated archivist, industry professional or armchair critic, your content helps power careers and settle viewing decisions (and bets) the world over. Significantly, it’s not just visitors to IMDb’s websites and apps who benefit. Today IMDb’s content is helping to reinvent the video-watching experience via Prime Video’s X-Ray for Movies & TV and power entertainment-related answers via Amazon’s Alexa. Your contributions can have an enormously wide reach, one that is expanding fast.

With that in mind, for IMDb’s Content team, 2018 will be remembered as the year we started to get serious about structured, international data. Having the right answers at the right time in multiple languages, and presenting them in a way that makes sense in text, voice and other media formats has been a big focus and we’re hugely grateful for everyone who has been involved so far. Many of you have been adding international title text for years (thank you) and we were pleased to roll-out a well-received policy change to enable us to collect even more locale-specific title information. We also launched language and country-specific tagging for posters. Check out these versions of the Avengers: Infinity War (2018) poster, tagged with Portuguese and Hebrew.

Elsewhere we’re still laser-focused on making it easier for you to contribute. In 2018 we launched brand new contribution interfaces for User Reviews on apps and our mobile site, and for Title FAQs on our regular desktop site. For the latter we’re now open to submissions of questions without answers to encourage those that do know to help those that don’t. We also launched a new Data Gaps feature to surface missing key title content including runtimes, release dates and plots. We’d love to hear your feedback on new contribution initiatives like this, so please do give it a whirl. 

We also just announced a new interface that provides easy, bulk-access to subsets of IMDb title and name data. Check it out if you like your data straight-up.

Speed of service continues to be a major focus. In 2018, a record-breaking number of your contributions were processed within minutes, most within hours, and 95% of everything within 24hrs. For the remaining 5%, we work around the clock to ensure no contribution sits around for more than 5 days. Our customer service speed has also accelerated. Over the year 95% of your contacts were handled within 24 hours on Get Satisfaction and via the new-for-2018 IMDb Help Center (helping scores of you find answers without having to contact us – the speediest type of service there is).

Last but certainly not least, in 2018 we’ve had more direct contact with a wider array of contributors than ever. Our help community on Get Satisfaction is still the place to keep abreast of the latest feature announcements and have your say on content policy changes (see these recent discussions on Company names and writer credits, for example). Our new ventures into internationalization, however, have led us to many new contributors from across the globe and we’ve been blown away with the willingness and enthusiasm to get involved (special shout out to janusminoa and ljdoncel, you rock!). We even ended the year with a face-to-face contributor event in Mumbai. Col Needham and several of the team attended and had a blast – thank you for hosting us, India!

If you’re keen to get involved in new initiatives, please do make yourself known on Get Satisfaction. We’d love to work with you. 

On behalf of IMDb’s Content team, thank you, thank you, thank you to our Get Satisfaction Champs, our localization participants, our Beta testers and to each and every one of our contributors. Huge congratulations if you made the top 250 this year.

Happy New Year everyone, see you in 2019!

Thomas Porter
Manager - IMDb Database Content


... From a customer perspective by Col Needham ...

This is an exciting time to be a fan of movies and TV (and related visual media) because we are living in a golden era of choice and convenience: it has never been easier for people to tell stories on-screen and it has also never been easier for audience members to watch this content.  We love connecting storytellers to their audience and we love it when you, our customers, find something great to watch via a search, recommendation or other IMDb feature.  As technology advances we always look to provide new ways to access IMDb on more devices.  When we launched back in 1990, the ability to search IMDb by voice would have seemed like something from a science fiction movie, yet this is now a common experience with IMDb helping to power entertainment queries on Alexa (and recently not only in English). We will continue to help you to get answers for all your entertainment questions, to watch wisely and to share your passion for entertainment with other IMDb customers worldwide.

On a related worldwide note, India is now our #2 country by size of our active user base, behind the US at #1 and replacing the UK (now at #3).  I am just back from my first-ever visit to India with some of the team in December and it was an honour to meet our top contributors and industry professionals there. In support of our international expansion, we also recently added Hindi and Turkish translations to fixed labels within the IMDb Android app.  Look for more locally relevant content across IMDb wherever you are located in 2019.

We have continued to produce a variety of own video content and what better way to find a list of it than using an IMDb advanced search.  In particular, we have spun-off features from The IMDb Show including IMDbrief.  The IMDb Studio filmed interviews at The Sundance Film Festival, The Oscars, South by Southwest, The Cannes Film Festival, San Diego Comic-Con, The Toronto International Film Festival, The Emmys and New York Comic-Con. 

Our end-of-year section, Best of, is bigger than ever and celebrates the year in entertainment. We presented a number of IMDb STARmeter awards across the year: Bill Skarsgård, Pom Klementieff, John David Washington, Olivia Munn, Olivia Cooke, and Jacob Elordi. The award is based upon actual traffic to IMDb so every page you visit effectively forms part of the vote.

We followed our 2017 technology migration with a regular cycle of site updates both behind-the-scenes and visible to you. Updates included user reviews, lists, advanced title search, https support and a new video player.

Thanks again to our poll community for the inventive polls, now with over 15,000,000 votes.

Beyond the main web site, we regularly release updates to our mobile apps and you can read release notes or reviews in the iOS and Android stores. You can also follow us on our various social channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube or read our growing number of regular emails.

For entertainment industry customers we offer IMDbPro and Box Office Mojo. On IMDbPro we launched a new design of the main pages based upon extensive customer research; we added many features to the iOS app; we launched an Android app; we are especially pleased with the launch of IMDbPro Track allowing you to be notified when people or titles in which you are interested appear in the news. IMDbPro is also proud to be able to support the ReFrame initiative.

We have an exciting 2019 planned and we look forward to serving you better whenever and wherever you access IMDb.  If you would like to join our team or have friends or contacts with the very particular set of skills we are seeking, please keep an eye on our jobs page where we are regularly recruiting in the UK (Bristol, London) and US (Seattle, LA, NYC).


Thanks and Feedback

In recognition of your contributions, as usual, we are offering the Top 250 contributors free access to IMDbPro for 2019 which will activate / renew automatically when they next visit IMDbPro and login.

Thanks again for all your support during the year. As always, ideas and constructive feedback are welcome via Get Satisfaction, where you can also propose and vote upon ideas, specifically including:  IMDb, dataiOS, Android or IMDbPro.

We wish you a Happy New Year!

Col Needham
IMDb Founder & CEO

on behalf of the whole IMDb Team

Happy New Year to you, Col, and the entire IMDb-team and community. 

Thrilled to be back in the top 250 for the 3rd consecutive year. However, this year was the most challenging of all to make, I have to admit.
The question if I have done enough to contribute to the site, enough to make it into the top 250 again rears it's ugly head in the year's closing weeks.
I would like to propose the possibility, for all contributors, to have a personal counter in their page (only for them to see?) that keeps track of the validated contributions. 
Would this be a possiblity?

Best regards and once more, a happy and entertaining New Year to all.

Thanks and congratulations. 

A continuously updated contribution counter has been a long-term suggestion and it is on the list of ideas for consideration, however, it currently requires a significant amount of computational power to produce the end-of-year lists so it is not an easy fix.  At least technology gets faster every year though so stay tuned ...

FYI, my "Lifetime Total" on my profile page https://www.imdb.com/user/ur0301684/ was 50,000+ at the beginning of 2018, and it is now 75,000+. But one cannot deduce anything from that, because 50,000+ could be anything between 50,000 and 74,999.

Hello! Can someone check the complete number of my submissions? It shows 15801 and I didn't enter in Top 250? I know that's not the real number, some of them might not be admitted and 'admonitions' have more item included. Until what hour the items were included in the year 2017? I put a lot of effort, please check again. Thank you for being here in this day.

Sir, read my plea. In September, when my items - the counter 1... 10,000 - added were around 8,5000 this page https://www.imdb.com/user/ur34458014/ showed  10,0000. So, you are tell me that between September and almost New Year's midnight I was only accepted with 966 items. You saying that almost 5,000 items added by me were not approved, duplicate... although the items that I put can be found on the site. Could you give me an example of my 'duplicate data'?

No, sorry, we are not saying that at all.  What we are saying is that our count and your count will always be different, not just from September.

The count on the badges is something slightly different too.  Your own count, the badge count and the end-of-year counts are counting similar things, however, they are not counting exactly the same things, primarily because of the way IMDb works; for example, multiple people may send the same data at approximately the same time and that would create differences between the three numbers; or existing live data may be edited or even deleted by someone else.

Sir, if it will take me the hole year, I will check every submission that I made. That impossible. My page shows 10,000 added, so where are the rest 5,801 items? There all multiple / edited by someone else ...? At least, can you point what was the my last contribution admitted. Anyway, something should be done for a contributor to see before he add an item that it is already proceed.

Col,

This was our great pleasure to have you in Mumbai for the first ever IMDb meet-up event which took place on December 11, 2018. I thank you and your team on behalf of the IMDb India data contributors for giving 19 of us the opportunity to meet you and your team and learn so much about the history of this organization.

On this occasion, I would love to share this group photo of you, your team, special guest Zachary Coffin and the 19 IMDb India data contributors, which was taken that day during the event.

Photo courtesy goes to Prachi.



Wish you and your team a Happy New Year!!!

The "Contribution History" Beta list (https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history) is the best addition this year. This will be very much helpful to the contributors to track their submitted data status.

One more thing I would to like to request, a real-time (or updated once a day) list which will show the total/daily/monthly/yearly approved data count. That feature will be very much helpful to the contributors in the race to make it to the Top 250 year end contributors list.

Thanks Col. I don't know why I didn't get the mail (in my email preferences I've opted for "Send me emails from the following categories" and not "Do not send me informational emails"), but I see I also received the badge for 2018, so I'm fine. By the way, I don't think the badges were ever added this fast!

All that and IMDB still can't figure out how to adapt their database so producers can add credits for crew people and artisans who have made major contributions to the restorations of older films.

Or provide a telephone number for actual live support.

And I still can't unsubscribe to your unwanted email updates after I've canceled my IMDB Pro membership.

Outstanding operation don't break your arms patting yourselves on the back so much while continuing to ignore these issues for years.

I like to look at these end of year stats, but there never seems to be any recognition for those who contribute user reviews, without which many people wouldn't bother visiting the site.

Thanks for the feedback, however, as it states in the opening of the message:
Thanks again to everyone who contributed to IMDb -- every data contribution helps.
This includes user reviews, and those reviews count towards all of the totals reported here from 2009 onwards -- from https://contribute.imdb.com/czone/top_msg#2009
New for this year is that we are now able to count user reviews (formerly known as "User Comments") in these totals.
We have over 100 data sections so it is not possible to list each one specifically by name each year, however, various review related items were mentioned in the message for 2017 at https://contribute.imdb.com/czone/top_msg#2017

Hey Col,

I expect that I made the top 250 again but could you let me know? My ur is ur0067163

Never mind. I checked the wrong email account! I actually got the email this year. I don't think I have before. I moved in to the top 50 this year. When can we expect the badge to show up?
