Is updated and is looking sexy. Well done to the team (is that still you, Nick?) who have worked on this! I love some of the new touches (especially the 3 rules) and was shocked to see my review count - 757!!

ACTUALLY... You know even an option to add a Poster or Frame of the film to our films review page (so it appears next to our films name for that year) would be awesome. It's always hard looking at a films name and trying to remember what the film was about - and a pic / poster would probably help us all remember it better.

Terrific idea, I second this. Set it up so it's an option the team can do at the same time as they're signed in with their password entering the blurb about their film, and the image would appear alongside that blurb.

First up would be, to have a link at the top of the page to get back to 48 hours hope page?... always seems like I'm looking around for a link when I'm finished and I can't find one. Also, a link to the Screening room AND vice versa - having a link to the reviews page of the film you're watching in the screening room would be awesome.

I'll try and find a sensible place for a main site link to go but I'm not sure yet.
We used to have a little bit of bi-directionality between the screening room and reviews (I think 2014 and earlier) but given they're maintained separately it got a bit hard to maintain. Now that we share a database it might return... I'll see what can be done when films start getting uploaded for this year.

ACTUALLY... You know even an option to add a Poster or Frame of the film to our films review page (so it appears next to our films name for that year) would be awesome.

Maybe...

Any chance the review site could have a Mobile version available on the day of reviews, so we could review once we're out of the cinema? We had something like that last year I thought or?

This latest update of the site should be a lot more mobile friendly, so you shouldn't have any trouble reviewing off your phone (a box pops up on the home page too with heats that were within the last 2 days to make it easier to find yours). One thing I was kicking around last year was offering downloadable pre-filled scorecard PDFs with team/film names etc, for people to print and take along to heats, but it's a lot of work to implement.

Hey Nick, any idea why when you click on a heat the order of the films playing keeps changing? Sometimes you look and a film is at the top of the list then you look another time and it's in a different position. Was checking to see the order of the night but looks like it's just random and has nothing to do with the order on the review site? Cheers

Hey everyone, I've added posters to the team comment form... if you add one it'll display alongside your film, as well as get sorted into a random little sliding block on the front page to try draw some more attention to different films.

Probably a bug... in the past I've hand-input the screening order for each heat so the films are in order but haven't done that this year so it's getting confused... I've changed it to sort by team name alphabetically so should stop switching around now!

Awesome! Hopefully having that feature there, along with the poster competitions, will help get more people into the poster game (and reviews game, if they'd just swap out that "News" link on the homepage!) in coming years :)

This is fantastic Nick. It may seem like a small thing, but we humans are rather visual creatures, so I think this might make the reviews interface come alive a bit more for people. Love the front page sliding block of posters too - definitely a good incentive to make a poster!

Hey Nick, another question for ya - as far as reviewer stats go, what does "points" mean? Number of reviews and number of subscriptions, those are clear enough, but no idea on the points thing. (I had 0 points yesterday, and I now have 1 point today.)

My guess is that now that there is an upvote/downvote system a point means one of your reviews got upvoted.

What about merging the screening room and reviews site?

Love the site, its working really well, But also:

When a film is uploaded to the screening room could a link be added to that films review profile? (I’m hoping to review more films once they are available on the screening room)

Also, when viewing one films review profile, it would be great to have next and previous buttons to go to go through the heats that way. So you can review one, hit next and review from there, rather than going back to a list of the heats and figuring out which one comes next

Either that or, last year once you had reviewed a film the link to review that film would have a strike through so it was easy to see what you had and hadn’t reviewed.

Love the addition of the poster. Really really nice.


Aaaand, i tried to ad an emoji to one review but the site rejected it. Probably put it low on the list of things to change but it would be nice to be able to use emoji ?

If you look at the total reviews number then you'll see it's different to the ones you see, so it must be a bug, isn't having influence on the score though.

Yes, I'm looking at bring back some sort of screening room integration... stay tuned.

Either that or, last year once you had reviewed a film the link to review that film would have a strike through so it was easy to see what you had and hadn’t reviewed.

Apologies, didn't realise this had stopped working - just patched this so hopefully it starts working again, let me know if not.

My guess is that now that there is an upvote/downvote system a point means one of your reviews got upvoted.

Correct! (Although upvote-only currently, no downvotes) It's there as a bit of an experiment to give people a way to say thanks for a review, and let reviewers know their words are being read/appreciated.

It was indeed a bug, hopefully squashed now.

How do we see which reviews have been upvoted? Nothing seems to show alongside any of the reviews; all I can see is the points total up the top.

Didn't think about that! I've just added a popup so when you hover over your points score at the top - that'll give you your top 5 reviews (by total upvotes) and their individual scores.

I've also just added some very basic one-way screening room functionality... you should start to see 'Watch this film in the screening room' links start to pop up on film review pages as they are slowly uploaded. Integration going the other way (from Screening Room to Reviews) isn't under my control sorry.
