I would like a notification (an email for example) whenever an actor, writer, movie etc has an update on "his/her/it's" page, Is this possible?For example if I want to follow what an actor is doing, and when there's a new film added or information added to a project underway I'm notified about this.

No, there currently is no option to "follow" someone, but you could post again as a suggestion (check "idea" instead of "question") and people can add your idea or check it as a good one. That could give your idea attention and have it possibly be added.

It would be really handy if I could receive updates whenever a news item/update is posted on something or someone I have on my watchlist...!!!

When using my IMDB app on my iphone, I could go under notifications, and select to instantly receive updates....

When using my IMDBpro account, set up a sort of email "alert" whenever someone or some title I've tagged is updated...

How can I get updated when new movies are listed under an actor? I think this is a no brainer feature that should be added if not added already. So how can I do it?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why don't you have "FOLLOW" button?.

It would be great if you put "follow" button on actors/actresses, directors and movies pages so we could be able to hear upcoming news about them. It could show up on our profile pages like there are two new messages such as Johnny Depp announced for a new movie or the new trailer of Black Mirrors' new episode has been realesed etc. Under recent circumstances we always have to visit their pages to learn if there is something new or not. You can develop this kinda feature, can't you?

Is there a setting where I can get a notification, through email or the website, when my favorite actors, directors, writers, etc. are working on a movie or tv show and when it is going to be released?

It would be really helpful if 'artist' pages (actors, directors, screenwriters, etc.) had a 'Watchlist' or 'Follow' button, to receive notifications whenever they produce or are in something new. It doesn't seem to exist already (unless I've missed something very obvious).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled "Watch List" for the Person.

Wouldn't it be great if you could keep up to date with not only the movies, but the actors, writers, directors, and producers listed in the film description. It would be a wonderful way to look at a person's entire body of work and see anything new that they have. I often find new inspiration and new films to watch by following not only the actors or the films, but the directors and the writers too. It would be very convenient to have a simple list for this instead of trying to remember every name.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Notifications / RSS flux for new content on a page : new film by a director/actor....

Hi, I would like to know if there is a feature that notifies when new content is being added linked to specific pages, or a way to have a rss flux out of an existing page. i.e : a new movie by a director/actor/writer etc.

It would be great if I could be notified if there are any changes (new movies, etc...) when an actor signs on for a movie or series or what-not.  So we can keep up with what they are up to.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Following Actors, Directors etc..

I use IMDB about 1-2 hours a day browsing and stuff, and I always feel like there is something missing... I would like to be able to in a way "Follow" my favorite actors/directors etc. Not in a social network kind of way, but to be able to find all of the news stories of projects concerning them quickly and easily.

Does anyone agree? Or am i missing something obvious?

Watch List for director, producer, writer, actor, etc. In IMDB,. I would like to track work in a Watch List by categories other than just movie titles. I saw Wind River last night and see that Taylor Sheridan also did Hell or High a Water and Sicario.It would be nice track upcoming projects like this. Good idea? Thanks...

Màybe, before criticizing IMDb for quite a complex request, you should learn how to use GetSatisfaction: I received 14 notifications of your unconstructive message.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Wouldn't be nice if users could follow the artists they like?.

Whenever I find out a very creative director/writer/actor, I look their IMDB works in development and add to my watchlist. What if IMDB had a tool for us to follow someone's career? Then we would be notified if that person's new movie is already available to watch. A tool for fans.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Tailored News Feeds for Users.

I am not sure how others use their watch list but I use it primarily as a way to keep check of movies and TV show episodes that are set to be released (eg Marvel and DC's upcoming projects). Seeing as I find it to be a slight hassle having to go into each individual listing's page and then their news feed, I would like to propose an idea. The ability to have a tailored news feed specific to what the user wants to see. This could be news on anything found on the site already such as actors, TV, movies, and events. This way the user can happily scroll through articles on only the things that interest them as well as the ability to remove those that don't (such as spoilers when the time arises).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Idea: let me add people, not just movies, to my watchlist.

I've found that I generally add movies to my watchlist when someone I like is involved -- a director, actor, or screenwriter.  I realized that it would be easier if I could tell IMDB (e.g.) "Any time Amy Schumer's name is added to a movie, please add that movie to my watchlist".
