    No, those thumbnails are automatically chosen from the ratings of uploaded shots.

    I made shots from some movie that have rounded corners.
    Something like this:

    Should i cut this shot to black line or red line?

    What is more important. Original title or imdb original title?
    I've got movie with original title "Something. And something else" (This title is in the movie (like title shot), poster, DVD cover, and Polish movie site filmweb.pl).
    But on IMDB is only "Something"
    At WTM i add "Something. And somthing else". Is it OK?

    @pioa I think it's fine, as long as you also add "Something" as an alternative title.

    For WTM main title, please stick to the IMDb *original* title. ALWAYS.
    And then add the title you think to be the original title as an alternative title.

    But first make sure that it's really not there, by also searching for alternate imdb titles and the imdb-number (in the link of the movie page on IMDB).

    Hi, first i would apologize for my english...

    My question is : In the "quiz stats" of profils, there is "x feature films" and "x snapshots".

    Does it mean that if i solve a snap who is still in the new submissions, i will not up my FF stats ? I guess we earn the point later when the snap goes in the Features, but i want to be sure...

    I hope my question is clear... Thx!

    Yep that's right. When a shot is in the NS and you solved it, you don't earn a point yet, but if the shot goes to the FF, you will have automatically one point for this shot

    Yes, I know, but if you also accidentally solved some shots that were already in the archive, you just get the total snapshots point, not the FF film point.

    I have a question about rating. I found a shot rated by one WTM user. I rated it 2. Then i noticed that overall rating is 7.25. I supposed the overall rating is average of all ratings. But 7.25 coudn't be average. Even if first voter placed 10! With my 2 average is 6. What's going on? Could anybody explain it to me?

    solved shots count x3
    So guess the user rated it a 9 then and solved it
    (3 x 9 + 1 x 2) / 4 = 7.25

    But... why solver has more valuable vote?
  5.  permalink
    It helps shots from lesser known movies to have more chance to be accepted.
    People have a tendancy to give a lower rate for shots they haven't solved.

    Hello everyone! I have a couple of questions:

    A. How can I find out who adds one of my snapshots to his/her favourites? I know it's possible because sometimes I get shouts on my wall of people thanking me for the "fav".

    B. Will it ever be possible to combine more than one tag in order to narrow down the searches? (I know, this might not be the right topic for such a matter :) )

    Thank you guys!

    Hello,
    First I want to say that i I really love this site. WTM is perfect for people you like watching movies.
    Then, I've got 2 questions. Sorry if there are already some answers but I haven't found it.
    What the differences between the feature film score and the snapshots score on my home page (I have some ideas but I'm not sure).
    In the all of fame we can see are overall position in some ranking but not in all (first solver for instance). So is there a way to know how many time I have been first solver ?
    Thank you and keep going on that way

    Hello zoo

    Unfortunatly, on this page there is just the 20 best first solver. It seems like we can only know our rank in "top solver" and "top contest solver" and not in the other. It's not really important but if it's possible I would like to know my rank in the other
