Animation,Doc-s v actually Films

Postby gabba2k7 » Sun Sep 15, 2019 8:26 pm

Hi there...i went to check some PSIs (You->PSIs), entered in 'PSI: Predicted Score Indicator menu' year (1999-now), country (US ofc), genre (started with Action) ....and i think about half of the results i got were cartoons. (for 'type' i first had nothing, then chose tv-series. and got somewhat similar result)

and well...i found that uncomfy ...

i think all animation should be kept separately.
option (1) like Games. totally separate access 'menu' (with structure obviously resembling Film's one)
option (2) animation to be shown in your list only if u precisely permit that to happen (maybe to add additional checkmark [V] somewhere in You->PSIs->PSI: Predicted Score Indicator menu. so only when u put a checkmark it will be shown amongst non-animated movies/series )...

i know i can use more comprehensive search mechanisms (like You->PSIs->"Full list of your PSIs" [search menu], and Explore->Full database [search menu] where u can check [V] to (not) include animation)

but well...i want to use this quicksearch as well so i find it reasonable to have animation excluded from PSI: Predicted Score Indicator search by default until users click to include it.

PS: same for documentaries, see my next message with more reasoning

I would discourage such a change, because where to stop ??
it's a slippery lope: you don't like animations, but other users don't like documentaries, other users don't like horror movies ...
so where to draw the line ?

If any such change is introduced, it should be entirely optional.
