This includes wife's and kids' discs, so don't hold them all against me :-)
That is a placeholder [like] for when you get your full list up. :-P
Ha... I'm going to try creating an IMDB list today and exporting it, to see what format the XML is, and then seeing if I can replicate that from my Movie Collector list. Fingers crossed! Otherwise, I guess it'll be 1 by 1 :-P
Just noticed in the FAQS their preference to not include TV shows etc, as this is meant solely for feature films. As such, I won't be adding any more shows/docos/music videos.
Feature-length docos they don't seem to mind and I've seen lists from the creators of the site that are solely live music concerts and documentaries (they're not big on compilations of music video clips, though)
Hah that's weird... I wonder why they have that in the FAQ then?
"Can I add TV shows to Letterboxd?
We’d prefer you didn’t. Although TMDb’s data contains some TV-related information, Letterboxd is designed for sharing opinion about feature films. We reserve the right to remove television-related data from Letterboxd at any time, without warning. If TV’s your thing, try Fav.tv."
They don't mention music or doco's but you'd assume if TV's a no-go, they would be too.
Ah well, I might keep it restricted to movies anyway...
The FAQ is more aimed at episodic TV shows rather than feature-length documentaries and music stuff. I'm quite a fan of the latter myself, and have heaps in my lists ;)
Ahhhh k understood... Most of my music stuff are (feature length) live performances, and docos are often aired as episodes on TV (Attenborough stuff). Hey I'll add what I've got (assuming tMDB has it, which it didn't anyway in some cases), with the understanding as above you guys can delete what you want if it contravenes your wishes. Thanks Mike!
No problem. TMDB are actually starting to actively remove TV shows now themselves (previously they hadn't policed it so much), so we will be starting to follow suit a bit more once we work out the best way to approach it. If the docos are aired as TV episodes then it probably falls more into the TV category (unless they are later compiled into a feature-length release of some sort), but there are certainly likely to be some grey areas to be worked out.
Yeah totally understand. As I say will just add what I've got (with the exception of obvious episodic TV), totally subject to your discretion to remove whatever you want. Thanks for the info!
