Hi

I'd like to create a favorite list for people who work in the movie industry and celebrity like usual lists for our favorite movies, tv shows and etc. but I as I found out, IMDb doesn't include any feature/option to create lists for people and celebrities. for example. I'd like to have a list of western actor/actress or a list for an actor who works for a director, like Speilberg and so on. Is it possible and I don't know or it hasn't included in IMDb yet?
Thanks
Masoud

Hello, Masoud. 

You can compile an IMDb list of names. In order to do that you should select "people" while creating the list. Hope that'll help.

Hi Nikolay

Cool! didn't notice the drop-down menu and "People" word and it worked! Nice. But there's no button in people page to use it to add their to our lists, and need to open a list and search a name in search field. Adding a button for people would be great. 

Thanks

You're welcome, Masoud. Glad to be of any help! 

As for adding people: unfortunately it should be done from the list page; the fastest way is to copy either person's name or IMDb link (a short version akin to "nm4087886" would do as well) in the field.

The short version is a nice tip and useful, cool! Thanks again Nikolay. Checked your page, your profile is a long and seems you're busy and shows a talented man. See some great names like " The Dark Knight Rises" that's one of my favorite movies, especially its fantastic score. Congrates Nikolay and Good Luck, 2 thumbs up!

Great thanks! I just used my page as an example, but flattered you were interested enough to look at it.

Luck is always appreciated and needed so great thanks for that, again! I'm popping up occassionally on some big budget movies as well as helping out on many low- to no-budget projects, while also making my own shorts, web-series and, most importantly a feature which is filming since 2007. :)

Another option is to download the IMDb Movies & TV App for iOS, Android, or Fire devices. The IMDb apps have a feature that lets you add to a list (or create a new one) directly from any person's page.

I checked my phone app, but I didn't see the option you mention! Seems this is another issue in my phone version that does not exist! I But thanks Jess for this tip.

Which phone and which version of the IMDb app do you have installed? All modern versions support adding to name lists from name pages.

Hi Col

My phone is Huawei Mate 7 and the IMDb version is the regular version (not pro one) and it's up to date. I don't know why it behaves like this. All the apps on my phone work perfectly. God bless the desktop version that I could search movies and so on! 

Also, the app is very slow to show images. I reinstall it a few times since I installed it, but nothing has changed and I checked it less and less and as I said it almost useless for me and I depend on the desktop version.

Sorry to hear on the app performance.  We have been making performance improvements in the Android app over the past several releases and will continue to do so.

Assuming you have a recent version installed (say 7.5.6+) and are not limited to an older version due to the version of Android on your phone, you should be able to add names to any name list via the name page.  Just look to the right of the person's name on their page and on the right-hand edge of the screen you should see three vertical dots representing a menu; tap this and a menu with an "Add to list" option should appear (along with "Share" as the other option).

I tried the menu (3 dots) but nothing happens! As you see, there are no links for two first options. In the second screenshot, you can't see any image in the white rectangles and no links for "Personal Details" section again!?

Hello, and thanks for the screenshots! It looks like your app is actually not loading any of the actual content on the page. You are just seeing the sections, but not the data. Can you give us a bit more information so that we can trouble-shoot?  It looks like you are on a 3G connection, is that correct?  If you completely close and restart the app when you are on a wi-fi connection, can you see the content on the page?

Hi Jess,

No, some images load correctly, but some of them like people profile, gallery images of a title don't load. Jess, you have eagle eyes and see the tiny number of 3G!, yes, you right and I use a WiFi connection and my internet speed is horrible and slow (256 kb) because I live in Iran and a high-speed connection is expensive for me. 

I restart many times but it won't respond, I haven't tried the app with a high-speed connection (4, 8 MB or higher) yet, maybe the issue is about the super low speed.

Thanks

OK, thanks for confirming. I shared this with our Android team. They are seeking ways to improve the experience for slower network speeds.

It's a good idea and would be a boon for people like me suffers from low-speed connections. 

Thanks, Jess
