i'm logged in but do not see the recommendations for you section or rather it's blank despite having rated 140+ movies yesterday for the sole purpose of getting personalized recommendations. The section is also blank on the mobile site - again when I'm logged in with the same account with 140+ ratings.  Why? This is very poor functionality. Why is personalized recommendations not simply included on the top menu? Thanks!

On this page
it says (among other things):
When you give a movie a positive rating or add a movie to your Watchlist, we track that as a movie that you are interested in.
New ratings will have an immediate impact on your recommendations. After rating and adding titles to your Watchlist, reload the page to update your recommendations.
If we do not have any recommendations for you (either because you have logged out or because you have not rated many items), IMDb will show you a list of items that many people have seen so that you can enter ratings to get recommendations.
I'm not sure what constitutes a "positive" rating, but I'd assume at least a 7.

You say the recommendations section is blank? So you see that heading, but no posters. I wonder if the documentation is accurate (3rd item), or perhaps the system is having trouble at the moment. (I do see rec's on my account, but I've been on IMDb for a long time.)

When you go to the title page of something you rated, do you see the More Like This section?

(The help page does not claim this has anything to do with our ratings:)
