Here's the thing -- a lot of actors depend on that score because believe it or not, it does often make the difference between choosing one candidate over another. I used the STarmeter when I cast a part in a pilot I produced -- but in my case -- I am only a writer and a producer so who cares what my score is? Well the answer to that is I DO. I CARE. My score went from 31,000 to 900,000 in one week. There is no mathematical formula on earth that can create a drop like that. I had a very good score for a writer because I am a famous writer OUTSIDE of the film industry and my fans watch what I am doing -- if they watch on IMDB to see if there are more episodes of a show coming out -- who am I to tell them they can't do that? I NEVER tell them to look for me on IMDB. Their INTEREST in my work is a sign of my marketability -- but IMDB does not see that. I think the agenda is to only count searches from people and sites that Amazon sees as worthy. They are trying to push aside the web series people because Amazon can't make money off of them. This a fascist way to run the Hollywood industry. IMDB is no longer a reliable source. It's a tool for Amazon.

Fascist? It's a ranking and if you went down, someone else went up. Can you point out that those ahead of you don't belong there? No? Then how can you complain it's not accurate? You can't. You're just unhappy it went down.

Now, read this thread. It's not even about the subject you're talking about. So, why are you posting here??

I think the star meter thing was some problem that has been fixed. I remember someone mentioning something like that here on the board... Amazon has now its own studio and is going to produce shows and movies, I wonder how that will change the dynamic once they've produced something.
