Who worked with who in Trivia

Those "who worked with who" entries in Trivia section are always at the bottom regarding the interest. Most people just don't care about it. I think there should be a special section next to Trivia, Goofs, etc. about the previous (or future) collaborations for those who are interested in that. That way we can keep the Trivia section clean from such info.

Thank you!

My 2 cents: since you can get a comprehensive list from the search of all common works between 2 people, I have never understood the interest of such trivia!

But to bounce on your idea, I would appreciate, in a title page, an easy way to check for common works between two listed people. Rather than the fastidious search I mentioned above.

I'm very late to the game, but I came here to find out about just this issue. At one time, I do recall there had been a way to see if two particular actors had ever teamed up and it was really helpful. So called trivia that's simply a list of shows in which actors worked are very low-effort, redundant as the info is what IMDb is made up of and really mundane. Furthermore, does IMDb want to waste space on stuff that's already on the site? Any listing on the site could be choked by this redundant trivia!

Yes it is in advanced search.
Go Here......https://www.imdb.com/search/common/

But trivia may list three or more people that worked together on two projects or more.
I do agree that sometimes the two that worked together on two different projects can be subjective as to whether it's interesting.

If you want to find the search feature Vincent Fournois mentioned, go to the name page of one of the actors (on the main web site) you will find "Credited With" under the "Explore More" heading. That lets you find the titles where two actors worked together. A quick experiment suggests it also includes titles on which a pair of people worked even if they were not actors.

Actually, I wasn't seeking out the search, just using that as evidence of how very lazy and lame also-appeared-in trivia is. Thanks though.

It's also an easy contribution for those contributors that want to pad their stats for the yearly badges that are handed out!

What is the harm in the occasional "together again" item?

From https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/trivia/G42ZNVNNQT6P78FE  please see:

Is it interesting?
To ensure that the most interesting information is also the easiest to find we have introduced voting on trivia. When you click on a trivia item, you get the option to vote whether the item in interesting or not. We use this data to rank trivia items so that the most interesting rise to the top and those which users don’t find interesting fall to the bottom.
If you think a trivia item is 'irrelevant' or 'not interesting', rather than submit a delete request, please vote the item down.

Col, voting system is useful to, at least, place those entries down, which is almost always the case. I'd still like to see them separated from the general trivia, as they often mix with the more interesting facts.

Ed, you have made this point scores of times, so please stop it. You're sounding like a broken, spammy record.

"Most people just don't care about it" You have data to back up this assertion. (Yeah, we know you don't and want to pass off your own judgment as "most people".

It's not my own judgment if every single time those collaboration entries are in the bottom half of the Trivia section. Since the positioning is determined by other people's votes, I'd say it passes as "most people".

Trivia means different things to different people and people are always interested in different things. If there are no real errors, false information or dubious, unconfirned rumors, IMDb shouldn’t remove them. Once they’re accepted, they should stay. No need for internet or ”movie trivia” police.


I pretty much agree that these ”actor connections” are the least interesting part of trivia, but it’s merely my own personal opinion. I can always choose what to read.
