The "Compared to You" feature that allows one to compare one's ratings history with public ratings histories is very useful. Unfortunately, this very useful feature does not appear to be widely known. In addition, it is time consuming to find users who have made their ratings public. It would be very helpful to provide a central list of users with public ratings histories. If users express concerns about being on a central list, IMDb could provide an option for a user to include their ratings on a central lists.Another alternative would be to establish an IMDb board where users could announce that their ratings are public.Galen Mountfort inspired this idea with his question:How do I find other users with public ratings?https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...

I like it. Lists of users would be open to abuse, but this could be useful.

Yeah well if there was abuse that could be reported. Or alternatively one could have public ratings but comments disabled like for the user generated lists Thanks for starting this thread Dan. Hope we'll get some response from IMDb.
