LikeMinds alpha

I have rated over 3000 titles on Netflix.com. I use Netflix as my main repository of movie ratings. I like to know how I rated a movie, in case someone asks me. Sometimes I can't remember if I've seen a movie, or if I liked it enough to see it again, so I refer to my Netflix rating. Having to refer to Netflix is inconvenient sometimes. I don't want to have to start over from scratch with ratings on every movie Web site. What if I quit Netflix? What's going to happen to all those ratings? Now I can keep them. The LikeMinds Web app allows you to take your Netflix ratings with you, or move them from one Web site to another. Right now, you can export ratings from Amazon, Blockbuster, Flixster, Imdb, Movielens, Netflix, RottenTomatoes, and Yahoo, and import to Amazon, Blockbuster, Movielens, Netflix, and RottenTomatoes. They will be adding others.

It took about 10 minutes for my 3030 ratings to be imported from Netflix into LikeMinds.com. It took about a minute to download them to a file on my laptop.

It's in alpha at the moment, so they are looking for feedback on problems or features and are quick to respond. Let me know if you use it, and what your experience is.

    It's actually been around for quite some time, it was under the name SaveMyRatings previously, I've already been using it for months.

    This is a great idea for an app. I loathe constantly having to re-rate movies. I feel like I've done that about a dozen times already.

    Sweet! Thanks!

    I don't plan on leaving Netflix, but if I do. . .

    They're asking for your Netflix username and password, with nothing more than a 'trust us.' No way. NFW! And they're not even using https.

    Doing this with Netflix is bad enough, but they also take your Amazon.com login and password the same way. Unbelievable.

    Maybe it's as dalesd says. Use at your own risk!
