I've observed that generally it takes two to three days for a list to appear on a title or name page after that title or name is included in the list. The most that I've seen this take is around five days.

Rima Snyder submitted the question, Related lists not appearing about 12 days ago. We believed that we resolved her problem. However, I've been monitoring the list that she created to ensure that the problem is actually resolved.

Her list is "Frequent Collaborators with William Cruse". She created the list on Sun Jul 28 20:03:40 2013. This list contains four people:

William Friedkin - list appears as the last item on http://www.imdb.com/lists/nm0001243/?...

Frank Darabont - list appears towards the end of http://www.imdb.com/lists/nm0001104/?...

John Kent Harrison - list on appears on http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006867/ and http://www.imdb.com/lists/nm0006867

William Cruse - currently no list appears on his main page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0190148/ . The William Cruse was added to the list on Fri Aug 2 09:25:06 2013 more than seven days ago.

Is this an isolated issue, or is IMDb having problems associating lists with their corresponding pages?

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I will continue to monitor the situation in the interim.

It's been 12 days since Rima Snyder added William Cruse to her list "Frequent Collaborators with William Cruse". She added him to the list on Fri Aug 2 09:25:06 2013.

I have to say, I've not encountered this problem before.

Neither have I. This could be an isolated occurrence, which would make this very difficult to determine the root cause and corrective action.
