What do you set Films In Common Minimum to?

I've never gone beyond the default 10%, but I recently noticed you can now change this from 3-50%.

Have any of you tinkered with this? What do you think the ideal number to set it to is?

50% - the maximum

I think the less films you've rated the lower you should probably set this figure.

I currently have mine set to 15%. I agree that it should generally be higher for people who've rated more movies. On the other hand, the more esoteric your viewing habits, the lower you'd want to make it. At the end of the day, I'd rather err on being too low than too high.

I don't know why mine is 8, but my PSIs are solid and I'm scared to mess with it.

Mine are also at 8 percent for some reason and I wasn't afraid to change it until this guy said something...

13%. any higher and i find too many of my fav users are excluded. i am curious to see what would happen if i upped it, but my PSIs are pretty damn good so idk. criticker could actually probably do an algorithm to show every user their most accurate % tbh but i guess that might be a ton of work.

I think if you set it to a threshold that's too low then you'll get a bunch of people in your TCIs who have only seen 400-600 movies and a good chunk of those are popular movies so you aren't really getting very good recommendations here beyond the obvious ones. So for me, I've ranked around 1250 movies + some TV shows and extras. If I set my % to 8 then I'd get a bunch of TCIs that have seen 500 films or so. So I set mine to 15% for now and I have more TCIs that have seen 800+ films.

yeah tbh if i'd seen more popular movies i'd probably bump the % up some, but i'd imagine the percentage of popular movies i've seen is lower than most people's.

Mine was default set to 20%. Not sure why. I'll probably just leave it since I watch a lot of movies where less than 50 or 100 others have rated it.
