Dear IMDb

My user-list https://www.imdb.com/list/ls008951202/ created 23 September 2012, has been black-listed from the related-lists feature. Possibly due to the inclusion of content that IMDb deemed unacceptable. This was not in any way intentional. However, I have in the meantime deleted all content that may have proved controversial. In view of this, I would really appreciate if IMDb staff could maybe reassess the list in question. And, if the list's current state is deemed acceptable, to reinstate once again on the related-lists feature.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ed Jones

Thanks for pointing this out. This has happened before where certain titles were inappropriate. However, Col Needham was kind enough to reinstate my list to the related-lists feature after the titles in question were deleted.

I experience the same problem for:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls042064669/

It's very strange to see that, on one hand, IMDb states the users' lists is the Holy Grail, but on other hand, users know nothing about:
  • the fact the list is abandoned somehow;
  • the reasons for any restriction, so the user could develop to the better.
Such practice is disrespectful.

Hi Dr-Faustus and MAthePA -

I filed a ticket for the appropriate tech team to investigate these particular Lists further, as soon as I have an update I will let you know here.

Dr-Faustis - in the meantime, please rest assured that you haven't been blacklisted, I do see that your other Lists are displaying under the "Related Lists" section on title pages, there just seems to be an issue with this particular list.

Hi Michelle.

Thank-you. Your response and actions are appreciated. I would just like to point out, I am aware the only list with a blacklisting issue is the list mentioned above, but thanks for the reassurance.
