watchlist functionality with ratings

Recently I have added some movies to my watchlist. A really great great functionality. Only one question. After rating a movie, it's still on my watchlist. Doesn't rating a movie imply that you watched it? So, is it possible to automatically remove movies from your watchlist after rating it? Or could it be a function which the user can turn on or off?

There is no setting for that.  It's been brought up many times before and there's a bit of a split in opinion.  Many people don't want it off automatically and want control of if/when a title should be taken off.

Perhaps they can create a setting for it so people can choose which way they want it to work?  Maybe?

Keep in mind, too, that though it's called watchlist and is meant to be used as you've described...those you want to watch...many people use it for other reasons.  Perhaps some don't know you can create a second (or more) list and use watchlist as watchlist and create another for those they've seen or those they own on DVD or those they want to get on DVD, those they want to watch when Grandpa comes over, etc.  If someone is using it for a different purpose, having rated it might not change whether or not they want to keep it on the list.

But I agree with your opinion.  I use it as a list to make choosing a movie for the night quick and easy and would love it if rating it afterwards removed it automatically.

Thanks for respons. Well, in that case, let's hope for more functionality for modifying your on watchlist.
