Please allow Collectorz to include the IMDB link in their database software. We’re all movie people and we will visit IMDB anyway....why not keep it convenient. We log our movies on Collectorz, , reasearch on IMDB and purchase from Amazon. It’s a win for everyone - including the users - and we are all part of the movie loving community. Why not support the users as we support you all. Thank you.

This sounds like a suggestion for Collectorz rather than IMDb.  Did you ask them?

Our linking guide is located at https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/general-information/how-do-i-link-to-a-specific-page-on-your-site... specifically:
We welcome and encourage these links. Permission is not required to do this, but we do ask that you acknowledge the database using its correct name when you link to us.

From the news on their home page (31 Dec 2018), it looks that discussions between Collectorz ad IMDb is pending, but has lead to suspend their displaying to IMDb links and ratings.

Thank you very much. They are a small company out of Amsterdam. They have posted the following on their site: Pending our discussion with IMDb, it was necessary to update the CLZ Movies app with the following changes:

The app does not download/update IMDb Ratings or IMDb links anymore.
All occurrences of the “IMDb” name and logo have been removed.
We hope to reach an agreement with IMDb soon, so that we can re-enable the above features. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

I support everyone’s need to run their businesses. Just asking for a quick solution so we can continue to enjoy movies and shows in all the ways that are available to us and with the benefit of convenience that technology affords us. Thank you for looking into this.

Help Page should say something about the "REF_=" is not needed on links posted on another site
This may cause problems with 'track the activity'

- - -


Claire, Official Rep :

As stated above,
"?ref_=" is an internal tool used in the URL of relevant pages
to track the activity of visits to/from applicable IMDb pages.
Please note that this is not a tool that tracks individual users,
but used to build context around popular and related pages.

You are lucky ... I do not get any email notifications at all.
I exceeded some sort of limit on threads / replies so now receive none.
The more active you are, the worse your problem will get, sorry.
GS are aware of the notification issues on their current platform.

Hi there.
I can confirm Collectorz is discussing using IMDb data with our licensing department.
So hopefully they will be able to provide our information on their platform again, for your convenience.

Hi all

I am pleased to confirm that Collectorz has completed the licencing agreement with IMDb - so we expect they will reintroduce the data shortly.

For any additional updates on timeline, please inquire directly with Collectorz.
