Netflix To Eliminate Profiles Feature
Yeah, that was my immediate thought. I have a handful of Greasemonkey scripts, and when I saw this article I wondered what it would take to re-create the feature. To do it right, you'd need a central server of your own that Greasemonkey could use to store which items were flagged as yours. Then you'd need to provide some kind of labeling feature to the page ("10 of the movies on this list are for me, 30 are for my spouse, and 20 are for my kids"), and finally a "rebalance" option that would take the single queue and intersperse your items with your spouse/kids items. That would roughly simulate the feature.
There's a simpler way if you can assume that only 2 people are using one account -- you'd use Greasemonkey to store all the items you flag as your own, and then when you rebalance, it would just put your own items every-other-one in the list. It "assumes" that everything not flagged as your own would be from one other person, so it could split the list 50-50. No central server needed in such a case.
Having thought it through, I think I'll leave it to others. I'd want to do it the "right" way with the central server, which would take more time to put together than I have. It seems very useful, though. I hope other Greasemonkey developers are considering it. Heck, maybe there is a better way that is less investment for the developer. Better minds will find it.
