I have created a movie list and have set it as public. When I share the link with my friends it keeps saying "this list is not public" even though it says "public" on my profile, I double checked.

Could it be the case that only IMDB users, that are logged into their accounts are able to view it?

Thanks

Well, I'm logged in, and it's not public to me.

Elden,

I'm also logged in and receive the same warning that your list is not public.

In general, if a list is public you do not have to be logged into IMDb to see this list. For instance, this is one of my public lists:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls044438721/

Will is an IMDb staff member. Now that you provided the link to your list, he can have the IMDb technical staff investigate and hopefully resolve the problem.

Thanks. I don't know why it's doing that then because it is definitely set as public.

Hi Elden,

Thanks for providing the list details. I've cut a ticket for this with our tech team now to investigate why this is showing as private.

Thanks,
Will

Hi Elden,

We've made some edits internally, could you please try re-posting the list now, it should become public.

Thanks,
Will
