ATS: Add the ability to enter list IDs in advanced title search

It turns out that Advanced Title Search will operate on lists other than your own. You just have to construct the search using your own list(s), execute the search, and then substitute the target list id(s) into the URL. (I created a tutorial on this at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027342264/)

Please make this more user-friendly. Provide a box for "Include Lists" and a box for "Exclude Lists", where we can enter strings of List Id's.

This way, instead of using a surrogate list, which might not have enough data to show the flaws of our search criteria selection, we can operate directly on the target list(s) and easily page back and fine-tune our search.

Am I looking wrong or is this already implemented? However, I miss list named my ratings, still need to add &my_ratings=exclude to search query.

Yes, you are missing 2 things:
1) this Idea is about lists other than your own, as described in the first paragraph of this thread:

2) Your Ratings is not a list, it's data IMDb keeps elsewhere. And they provide the selection or exclusion of your Ratings data on the Advanced Title Search page; it looks like this:

It's 3 categories above the Lists box.
