My ratings are public: http://www.imdb.com/user/ur31259244/ratings

My list is public: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls073630975/

But my ratings do not seem to be displayed on my lists to users other than me?

This is the way the feature works, sorry. Whenever anyone views a list they always see their own ratings. We will move this over to the "Idea" category as we agree that providing an option to show the list creator's ratings would be useful too.

Thanks for the personal reply Col, I now see that the way it works makes a certain sort of sense. It just means that I can't share a list and people see my ratings. Thanks for moving to Idea. All the best to you.

There is a workaround in that you can post your rating as a comment next to each item in the list.  For example, http://www.imdb.com/list/ls079119294/ is a list of mine with comments on other titles I considered in each year.  I could just have easily written "9/10" or "I rated this 9/10" or similar as a comment.

I like that kind of workaround, but I'm not sure it's possible from the app? I mainly use the app.

The comments are displayed on the iOS app (the Android app does not yet support lists).

How can I make comments in the iOS app?

Good point, sorry.  I use the functionality all the time but I only ever create lists with comments on the web site.  You can see them in the app but you cannot (yet) add/edit them in the app.
