How is the top movie list selected?
The movie lists are compiled using a weighted scale of 70% members movie ratings and 30% members movie lists. Movies that appear on the most member top movie lists as well as top genre lists receive the highest weight.
What is my member ranking and how does it change?
A member ranking is a way to measure how active members are. You can view your ranking in the upper right hand corner underneath your image. The way you obtain a higher ranking is to rate movies and write reviews. For more info see the points page. The point structure is outlined below:
