The little yellow bar in user lists

It is just a minor suggestion, but I really liked that little yellow bar on lists back before the big update that showed how many titles from that list you have already seen (e.g. 68 out of 215) and with a click on it you could effortlessly switch back and forth between the title you have seen (i.e. rated) and those you haven't.

I found that far more user friendly than it is now where you basically have to scroll down the entire page and also click several times to get the exact same result.

Would be amazing if you could bring that bar back at some point, folks at imdb.

Love,
Horst

Horst, why do you say you have to "scroll down the entire page" to select titles you've seen? 

The Refine options are located at the top of the page. Then select You and This List > Titles I Rated/Didn't Rate.

(I agree about clicking multiple times. And although you can turn off the option selected with one click, it's another set of clicks to toggle to its opposite.)

bderoes I was referring to the exact amount of titles I have(n't) seen.

Lets take this list for example
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls033953605/

You and this List -> titles I rated

It still says 100 titles up there, but when I scroll down I see it is actually 41 titles.

On a side-note, this number was displayed back then immediately when i opened the list if I am not mistaken.

Horst - Good point that the Count no longer displays at the top of the page these days. It used to be on top, as in "41 of 100" using your example. (I'm talking about on the new version, after the "yellow bar" feature you're recalling was eliminated.) Maybe we should report that as a problem, in case the Idea you're posting here just languishes.

Hi Horst & bderoes,

I've confirmed with our engineers that this has now been resolved, and the refined list results now display the correct number of results when filtered.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.
