For weeks now, two MAJOR site functions aren’t calculating correctly. And I wonder why there’s not more uproar.
Official-check counts for a given user are usually way off. Observe your displayed number of checks in the rankings and then compare it to how many official checks you see if you sort your checking history by “# official lists” and note where the zero-list films begin. My own count is currently 15 checks too high, and I don’t even know when it last was accurate. And I checked the discrepancies with the top-ranking users and found some gaps that were much worse. The worst of all was “blueboybob,” who is displayed with 9298 official checks but actually has 9657!!!
Countless films are wrongly displayed as being on 0 lists. I mean zero official AND unofficial lists. Currently, only about 94,700 films out of 781K are calculated as being on at least one list. This is far, far off. I just went to a totally random page of films on “0” lists, and 10 of those 25 films were not actually on zero lists. Bar Bahar (2016) was the worst case – this is listed as being on 0 lists but is actually on 22.
My watchlist currently has 169 films, and a whopping 64 of them are wrongly displayed as being on zero lists. One film was actually on 33 lists. Do you see how prevalent this problem is?
