How about organizing the lists better?

When you look at the lists associated with a movie, you shouldn't have to plod through hundreds of lists like "movies I've watched," "movies I've seen," "my favorite movies," etc. in order to find the few lists that actually have some effort behind them.  Lists with no commentary should come LAST.

I fully agree in principle. However, ranking the usefulness of lists may be somewhat difficult to automate. The simple criteria that lists with commentary should be more useful than other lists appears to be a good start.

You can't rank the lists by usefulness, but you CAN put the lists with no commentary behind those that DO have commentary.  Lists with a description and a comment for every entry should be at the top, useless lists with no commentary at all should be at the bottom, and everything else should be in between.  If not usefulness, sort them by EFFORT.

Didn't you already say that? And didn't Dan agree? ;)

I agree too!

I agree with you. Lists with over 100 movies should be put in a separate category. "Movies I've seen" with a 10 000 titles are useless for other users. No one is going to browse through that.

Idea: A feature could be created that categorizes user-lists according to the number of entries it contains. For example; 1-100, 101-200, 201-300... etc. And where a list is initially created with 100 entries and then updated by the listee, that list automatically falls into the applicable category. This change, alone, I believe, will be a vast improvement over the existing means of viewing lists.
