What features have IMDB removed over the years?

Besides the boards.

Re: What features have IMDB removed over the years?

One thing I noticed is that you can no longer search for birthdays with MM-DD only. Having to add the year defeats the purpose.

The Recently Viewed display of the pages you last viewed are now limited to 13.
They used to give you access to your history on a separate page which covered much more than 13 and allowed you to select the views you wanted to save and the ones you wanted to delete.

All they allow now is for you to clear the entire history.

Of course, if you delete your browser's cookies, it would delete your entire history regardless.

Not a big deal, but it did make quicker access to select pages.

You can bookmark those pages but it's still an extra step to do that.

The other thing is they added annoying flash ads to load on each page - I much preferred the simplicity of the original format.

Many sites get ruined by running all the fancy Java scripts that make pages slower and a pain to load.

I often use Wiki instead to save time for quick references.

I've used IMDb since the mid 90s, so I've seen many changes the site has gone thru over the years - they didn't have the boards back then either.
