2015 IMDB Top 250 movies Preliminary [1/1 list]

This is the list I have compiled. IMDB has not yet finished their official 2015 Top 250 so this list may change when that happens. Then the title will change from "Preliminary ..."

I have also created lists of IMDB's annual top 250 compiled since 1996, 20 years of lists. If you look at my lists, you will find them all under the heading "250"

Happy viewing!

FINAL UPDATE

WELCOME BACK MATTMAKINS!

Mightysparks made a mighty leap to tie Ultimo Lee for 7th place. Not to be outdone, julesyoung leaped over Ultimo Lee to claim 6th and a place in the 1+ films per day group. Loonapick rose one spot to own 15th and nybella joined skllduggerish for a tie at 24. Mattmakins took a page from mightysparks and julesyoung to leap to 22nd place.

Eleven players finished in the 1 or more movies per day rank: te18, schwabe, dashforcover, Puzzgal, guardianryoga, julesyoung, Ultimo Lee, mightysparks, McJoJo, kaplan, bpchicky.

Oh my goo'ness! (to quote little Shirley Temple). As a group we logged 242 movies since the last update for a Grand Total ... (isn't dot dot dot from Mamma Mia?) Drum Roll please ... of 7000 films. Can you believe that? an even 7000 films! Congratulations to all and thanks so much for playing Listology Scoreboard 2015.

Happy viewing and I hope to see you on the 2016 edition of Listology Scoreboard! God willin' and creek don't rise.

It's always fun to have new folks come and join the Scoreboard.

It certainly made updating the list more fun for the changes to not happen all at the top. I got to use some of the most fun verbs for folks moving around at the bottom and middle of the list!

I'm going to enjoy my high ranking (i.e. 2 or more films a day) while it lasts. 'Cause it won't last long!

On another note, get your films logged for 2015 because the final update will be on 1/17. If you make sure you are done by 1/16, you won't have to worry about me completing the update before you get your list done!

OK, I've calmed down and deleted the vitriolic comment I initially wrote.

In the listing of folks who, over the years, maintained the Scoreboard, you've left out the years you maintained it. I can understand removing the "over the top, highly embarrassing" thanks I had. Just put in:
•Thanks to kaplan who ran the list for 7 years: ...

Understand that you aren't thanking yourself, you are sharing the thanks of the Scoreboard participants. Plus, you make it easier if, someday, someone else takes over the list. The history is already there. It took a lot of work to track and create that.

So get over yourself and maintain the history properly. Do another clone of the 2015 list and copy-paste the relevant parts.

Great to see you back, kaplan. I'm in again

Good luck with the spreadsheet.

OK, just go to my account and click on "Contact" on the selection bar right next to "Favorites". That goes to my personal email. Send me your personal email there. I promise I won't ever send you "here's a cute picture of a kitty" nonsense. I'll work on the instructions. They should be pretty useful, I did that for a living not so long ago.

Are you going to create the new list and then instruct folks to go there to join the new list? I'd prefer that since I'll otherwise get a notification of each person who posts their new list.

Oh, I use Excel 2010, will that work? Are you going to port it to a different spreadsheet program? I can make the instructions Excel 2010 specific or Spreadsheet General. Which would work best for you? ("Oh dear lord," kaplan says, "she really has done this for a living. Who else would even think about that difference.") hee hee hee

That's true. Last year when we just took over to cover kaplan's absence, I finally took over and did the last ones because I'd developed the spreadsheet that made it easier to update consistently. and why I volunteered to do it this year.

An argument could be made (Oh great, I sound like a lawyer) that you could share the spreadsheet on Google share or Dropbox or some other such utility, but there would still be the complexity of arranging the sharing. Look how long we all waited until someone did that first interim update last year. And how rarely we actually did it. The group doesn't mind there not being an update Every week.

Terrific! Following your instructions, I found the cache for 12/14 which was after the last time I updated it. Thank you , thank you , thank you! I never knew about that little green arrow.

BTW, it will work in Chrome if, for the results, you choose the (Google search) option in the initial results, which shows as a second choice in a drop down style selection option. Does that make sense? Well, the important thing, I've got all my data back!

Kaplan, hoping you can help again. In 2010, I accidentally erased about 1/2 of my movie list. You sent me a listing for google cache that enabled me to get back quite a bit of that list. Now I've lost my 2015 TV list. I tried to modify the web page you gave me but with no luck. I could find instructions that said you have to enable cache search, but no instructions for how to do that. Anyway, the link you gave me in the first place was: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-lgLIpnZ2GEJ:www.li...

The page I need to recover, if possible, is: http://listology.com/dashforcover/list/2015-tv-log
Can you give a shot for me. I just screwed it up today, 12/28. I forgot to clone before I edited. I'm just glad I didn't do that with the movie log! Thanks for any help you might be able to give.

Work on re-creating the list from Netflix is impossible. In their continuing work to "improve" the site, they have dropped the list of "recent" views. If the quality of their offerings matched the lack of quality of their website, I'd drop them. They seem to be consistently dumbing down their site.

GASP!!! I was looking over the "author comments" section and realized that, for the group effort we did last year when kaplan was indisposed, I'd left te18's old name unchanged. I've corrected it now. Sorry for the delay te18, but it's fixed now.
