Starting today, the site doesn't appear to be consistently following this setting. Some pages do view in the correct reference-view layout, but clicking a link to another page tends to undo this and present the unwanted new-style layout.
I can still manually access pages by appending "/reference" to the URL, so the feature is clearly still active - the site just seems to be ignoring my account preference for this view.
You seem determined to ruin this site.
The "modern" view is nowhere near as good.
How for example do you show all job sections by default. Or do you really have to press the "Show All" button every time you look at an actor's name? I can't see anything in the site preferences to control this.
Now, I have to click on about 7 screens to see all the relevant data.
The average Joe who is uninterested in sections such as soundtrack and archive may not care..
However for the concerning viewer, (some of which saw a need to create this website), it certainly appears a backward step.
And something which technology surely could overcome.the bugs.
These are the types of things which make this website superior to other wannabes.
Another extremely disappointed user and contributor.
If I upgrade to IMDb Pro will I then have access to reference view again?
Please don't remove the combined view from movies or that would be catastrophic for a lot of people I work with. Thank you.
I’m not wasting time arguing about it. Because I can see that there’s no discussion to be had.
It's apparent – by the extremely limited amount of people (8 at this point) showing concern about this – that Imdb will consider the “problem” irrelevant. Hence, their minds are not going to change over any argument, no matter how reasonable.
Been a regular, everyday user for 17 years. I guess loyalty counts for nothing?
I'm out. Bye.
The lack of
AKA titles in filmography pages is a major problem for me. About 50% of the
time I know a film by its original title (e.g. Japanese, English) ,
and about 50% of the time by the English title only (e.g. Chinese, Korean
movies). No matter whether I choose "original" or "English"
as the title display language, half of the time I won't recognize the titles on
the filmography pages, and I need to check each film page to learn what film it
is... Which takes so much time. Couldn't we please have the AKAs back? At least an option to view titles in both "original" and "user selected" languages at the same time?
What the hack is going on Imdb? Why can't we see all the infos about movies as for example "alternate version" etc. anymore!!! I hardly needed all this stuff! Wasn't this new outfit supposed to be better and help us!
I can only hope they don't do the same to /combined, that would be an even bigger failure.
Go ahead. We can't stop you from what you're doing to your site. We can, however, use it less. As your site is paid for partially by ad revenue, that's on you.
Totally dislike the new format when you click on an actor's name to see other things they have appeared in. Please go back to original fornat
Dear person(s) in charge at IMDb,
and pardon my french, but >>>WHAT THE F***<<< did you just do to the wonderful simplistic, clear and neatly arranged layout of the actor pages (and the episode ratings pages, and who knows what else you destroyed as well!)?!?? I am shocked!!! :-O
The now "new" view is totally and utterly BS!!!
An abysmal regression in clarity and usability!!! >:-<
A few days ago everything was perfectly fine, as it has been since the beginning (or at least give the users the option of checking a box in the general site preferences to get the "old look" back indefinitely, like it was until a few days ago!).
Today I wanted to look up some actors and firstly also thought I wasn't logged in, because I was given the new layout (which I back then, when you initially introduced this unusable crap, disabled instantaneously; back then we fortunately still had this option!).
The page design I was now given is this just recently revived flashy (but completely impractical!) layout mess, which I hate so much and have been hating since the first time it was introduced at IMDb! >:-<
There is a great and immensely user-friendly page design/layout out there, you already have it, and millions upon millions of people love it and do not want anything else (because: why change an already perfect environment!?!!!).
Why do you now forced this unusable crud upon us without an alternative?!?? >:-<
Hey, IMDb, please listen good:
I DEMAND THAT YOU GIVE US BACK THE OPTION OF DECIDING FOR OURSELVES WHICH DESIGN/LAYOUT WE WANT TO SEE AND USE !!!
You can not establish a great work environment and then, after years and years and years of people using it >>>and above all loving it very much!<<< just willy-nilly take it away, that is a very mean and sadistic move on your part!
Not to mention that this is NO PROGRESS AT ALL, but instead it is PURE REGRESSION! >:-<
Real progress would make using IMDb even more clearer and user-friendly, but apparently your definition of "progress" is to take away a all that is good and replace it with garbage!
I am very enraged about you now trying to take away the perfect and most ergonomic way of using IMDb from us, the users! >:-<
PLEASE GIVE US BACK OUR PREFERRED LAYOUT, PLEEEASE, I IMPLORE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!
A loyal IMDb-user for many a moons

It's been 6 days... and... I can't stand any second of the new layout.
Everytime I open a name page it's like a nightmare, I always (unconsciously) think "oh that bug, right, but it will go away, just close the page and think of something else".
but it doesn't go away.
I don't think I'll ever 'get used to it.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IT IS OVER !!!! That my IMDB IS OVER !!!
PLEASE GIVE US BACK THE REFERENCE VIEW FOR NAMES !!!
At least give us a fair option
What can I do for you to change your mind ?
