IMDB's Watchlist is a sublime tool that gives you access to a panoply of titles; every cinephile out there should find it extremely useful — and most of us do. However, there are a few changes that could make the tool more useful and ameliorate the experience, especially one in particular: as of this moment, the only way to manage this list is by adding or deleting items from it, but wouldn't it be better if you could mark movies as "watched"? If you could do this, you would be able to keep movies you've already watched in the list, but ideally, they would not show on the list anymore (unless you checked some box or followed some link that lead you to them). By not removing movies from your Watchlist, you can keep it clean and organised, and you won't get recommendations to watch movies that you've already watched :)

Voila!

This is suggested often.  It's probably better to add your vote and comments to a previous thread so staff can see that it's a useful tool for many folks, rather than one.

An example, that already has a lot of votes, is https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/watched_button_to_movies_in_watchlist

Thanks! I had tried looking for another thread like this one, but I recognise I wasn't very thorough. I have added my vote to that other thread :)

Nice.  I had the advantage of being familiar with it, specifically!

You're very welcome!
