That's something I've wanted for a long time. I just wish there was some way to access that directly without having to add a movie to my queue.

Strange, Blockbuster also has a feature called "MiniQ." It seems everyone complains that BB's site sucks. It can't be that bad if the competition is copying them. Personally, I wouldn't use NF's "Mini-queue." I've had enough heartache with their normal queue--dropping weeks of titles then letting me find out after the fact. Now you'll be able to drag-and-drop your titles to oblivion :)

manuel,

"Strange, Blockbuster also has a feature called "MiniQ." It seems everyone complains that BB's site sucks. It can't be that bad if the competition is copying them."

Are you suggesting that if two options are named in a similar fashion they must be identical in usefulness?

I wish they would stop playing with their website and fix the real problems that NETFLIX has. I haven't had one-day return times in weeks. It now takes two to three days to travel 30-miles to their processing center. NETFLIX always blames the POST OFFICE. Strange, for nine-months I had one-day-return times.

one more major advancement over BB.com's website! Again Netflix is the pioner and everyone else follows in their footsteps. Netflix rules!

I haven't had one-day return times in a couple weeks myself here in the L.A. area. I even went so far as trying a postal dropoff location a few blocks away with an earlier collection time. No change... Now it seems the norm is two or three days to get back to Netflix, but still just one day when a new one is sent out.

Bummer, no longer can I send a movie out on Thursday and expect a new one in time for the weekend on Saturday. :(

I agree with Raymond. LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE! Every time Netflix adds some new gizmo to their web site, I end up loosing titles from my queue. It took me months to figure out all the titles that were lost. I watch serials. I rent volume A and don't add volume B until I finished watching volume A. I do this so Netflix doesn't send my serials out of order. After Netflix dropped approximately several weeks of titles from my queue, I didn't catch on until a month later. My wife goes what ever happened to the show we were watching. Then I realize I haven't seen it for many months because of Netflix's errors.

I don't want to be dazzled. I just want a system that works.

Manuel's comments would lead me to believe that there is only guy doing their entire website. They have to have more than one guy and I would also assume multiple departments.

"one more major advancement over BB.com's website! Again Netflix is the pioner and everyone else follows in their footsteps. Netflix rules!"

I could care less how their website works if they cannot send me any discs in a timely manner.

True, BB site is pretty poor right now but i get reliable 2-day delivery each way and with USPS scanning, I get next day shipping from them.

My last 5 discs took 5 days to get back to NF. They still haven't received my 6th disc and it is day #6 today! I received them from NF in 2-days for 5 & 3 days for the 6th one. Yet it takes 5 or more days to go back?!

Man, a lot of screaming kids at the theatre..

I dig it Netflix. Kickin the AJAX. Design leadership gets you points and investments in tech are small compared to marketing. I understand you guys really like Leslie and all, but don't forget the techies.

How about a Google Maps style virtual bricks and mortar movie store? See box covers, zoom in and out, pan and scan. Hire me. I'll write it for ya ;)

How about partnering with imdb and integrating the queue add function to their site. I'm not sure how this benefits imdb.com, but I know it would save me some time.

Aron

You mean partnering with Amazon.

Sounds good to me.

manuel

I seriously hope they don't partner with Amazon. Netflix service sucks. I've had fairly good service from Amazon. Amazon will only tarnish their reputation and standards partnering with such a notorious company.

Chris

I don't see Amazon getting into it until limits on rentals per month are in place as they have done in Europe.

I can't get to my queue right now, or anything...

"The Netflix store is temporarily unavailable.
This store is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Well, almost ...

According to your computer's clock, it is currently 03:41 PM

[b]It is anticipated that the site will be available again at 04:30 PM ( ~ 1489 minutes ) [/b]

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.

Please visit us again soon."

Maybe that's why my discs take so long to get mailed out if NF's clock uses approx. "1700" minute hours!!!

WOW!

the drag and drop in the mini-queue has been a timesaver for us 'queue-fussies'*

* constantly re-ordering the top of their online DVD rental queue

Qbot

WOW

Hugh

Okay, this drag'n'drop feature is nice. But why is it only available in the "mini-queue" when you add a movie? Why isn't it available in the main queue?
