I would like to share my ratings list with a few of my friends.    It doesn't look like this is possible.   Please consider it so that I can share my list of ratings.   I don't want it public but would like to share with a list of email addresses, or usernames.

Hi, can you make it so that list sharing options can be "unlisted" and accessed only by us, and the people we give the link to? Thanks.

Just a thought. What if you had a disagreement with another? Who would mediate? Who blocks who?
It is a nice idea but how will you dissolve the list?
More thought needs to go into it as to its implementation parameters.
Rules.
For some there would probably be no "Problems"
For others the database could be called on to arbitrate.
If you could come up with a more detailed plan it could work.
You would not want the database to decide. Nor would they want to.
You would kind of need an equivalent to a pre-nuptual. A pre-listual?

Just like you can share photos on an iPhone with a list of emails, you could do it here. Ability to just add or subtract from the list of shared people etc. or if that is too complex, just share the list, and if a problem delete that share link and creat a new one.

As it seems, you can make a list either public or private. It would be nice if there was an "Anyone with the link" button, so we can send our lists to friends, without making them public.

Would it be useful to enable list creators to "invite"
other users to collaborate as co-editors of a list?

(Such collaboration could sometimes lead to disputes.
Perhaps the list collaboration feature could be designed
with some safeguards to mitigate such problems.)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watchlist - How can someone else add to yours?.

I just created a custom public watchlist, shared the URL with my girlfriend. But how can she ADD titles to my watchlist I shared with her? When she hovers over the 'bookmark' icon in the upper left of the title, my custom watch doesn't come up nor does she have any options to add directly in my list after clicking on the link I sent her. 

Is this even possible?

I'd love to have the feature that I can share my list with a friend and we both are able to add new movies to the list. Yet this is not possible even if the list is public you can't add anything to the list yourself. I am aware that it wouldn't be good to allow this feature for public lists because otherwise, everyone in this community can add stuff. But rather it would be great if you could add to your list just the specific users you want to share the list with and those are then allowed to edit this list (incl. adding). Can you make that possible?

Have the ability for one user to create a publicly "shared" list that everyone who has an invite to or a link to can add Movies and TV Shows to the list.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Make picking movies between buds easier by letting users share their watchlists.

I was wondering, couldn't you make it possible for the users to share their watchlists with their friends or everybody for that matter? I know I'd use it when trying to pick a film to watch with my friends...

I mean, if we could link our watchlists and find out what films we have there in common, that would be cool.

Can friends view a private list if you send them the url? I have a private list and have sent the url to a friend but it tells him the list is unavailable and it might be a temporary problem.

Thanks, Paul

Common list making, accessible by x number of users, allowing to add seen movies, or movies they want to see.
