Suggestions for the "How much have you seen?" section

First off, I just discovered this section today and have spent way more time than I should have comparing my favorite actors and which of their work I've seen the most of! I have a couple feature suggestions that would make this section even better.

I already have two list of things I've seen, one for movies and one for tv shows. It would be really nice if we could just quickly mark a particular movie or show as seen straight from the list. Additionally, it would be nice to go into a tv show and select mark all episodes seen, either for the entire show or even per season. Currently the only way I've found to list an item as shown is to rate it, check in or star it in the "how much have you seen?" list.
Also, I like that you can select the type of roles and titles you want to see, but instead of a dropdown, perhaps have checkboxes? Then we could see everything except self, or everything except video games.
I do want to applaud the team at IMDb. This is the only website that I've been using for a long time (my profile says I registered 11 years ago, and probably used it for awhile before that) that continues to get better and better. Most other sites ruin things by adding too many bells and whistles and then I don't want to go there anymore.

Hi Sandrene,

Generally the best place to find this kind of information is on the IMDb Information message board or IMDb's Get Satisfaction Announcements.

You would never have found the post regarding the seen feature, since IMDb disallows compliant search engines from crawling the message boards.

I've compiled a list of polls based on title lists. I've converted a portion of these to seen links.
