Is NetFlix Broken?
I Can't Rate Movies Anymore...

 5:09 am on Jun 5, 2006 (gmt 0)

Rating movies was a way for me to interact with the site, gave me the feeling that there was a communication between me and their movie recommendation algo. In general, I think the ability to interact with a company builds bonds between a consumer and the company.

In this case the ratings system was a way to feel I had an input toward what their algorithm would suggest for me, that they were listening, even that they cared. Now I feel like I'm dealing with an ATM machine. Bad user experience. Cold.

It was cool to see when their ratings matched what I thought about a movie. I want my yellow stars back... Wah!

It's not giving me any trouble.

It is working fine for me too ;-).

BTW, I'm planning to 'cancel' the service for 2-3 months and then re-join but I do not want to loose my queued movies, do you know if my queue will be there when I re-join? anyway to save it? XML for example? or would be the only way to print it and re-enter it manually?

Have anyone done this before?

Netflix is working fine for me, it's just the movie ratings history that seems to be gone.

I have cancelled my account before but it stays dormant, you can revive your movie ratings history (unless they've done away with that). Can't recall what happened to the queue

Nice! They restored the function.
