Collaborate on a list or watchlist
Allow a list being 'open' which then users can follow a list and add films to it. This will result in much more list activity and complete film lists.
Take for example http://letterboxd.com/pablos/list/special-powers/. I can easily add 10 more movies without any effort to make the list more complete.
Optional: to demotivate abuse, submitted films must be allowed by the list owner before being added.
We love this idea and are formulating some plans around collaboration in general.
The idea is to be able to create a list but share it only with specific people, and also be able to edit it between themselves.
For instance: my wife and I have very different tastes in movies but we like to watch a movie together when we discover that we are both interested in the same one, but we like to exchange ideas just between us. And by having the option for both of us to edit the list we can compile it much easier, there would be no need to send links ex. via e-mail so that the creator of the list can add them.
Another example: when planning a movie night it's difficult to exchange ideas but if we could all edit the same list then this could go much faster. And because the movie night is something we will keep between ourselves we would like the list to be limited.
1) I assumed Letterboxd had this feature when I signed up, was surprised it didn't
2) How has it been five years since this suggestion and it's still not implemented?

I think a really great feature would allow multiple members to edit a list. I have a film club with a couple of friends and we use Letterboxd to keep track of what we're going to watch. It would be amazing if the two other people in the group could add and edit the list as well.

Please make this possible! It seems like it should be pretty easy...
Please add this feature! :) <3
I can't believe this isn't already allowed. A collaborative list functionality is a no brainer IMO. Please make it so.
Yes please, add this feature, nobody has it, not even IMDB lists!

It would be a great feature. Right now "collaborative lists" are basically made in Google Docs.
I would love to see this feature added for many of the reasons listed below!
I'd love to have this feature! I'm working on a "Movies Filmed in Toronto" list and would like to let a friend add to it as well.
I'd also love this - I want to create a watchlist with my girlfriend and was really hoping I could use my letterboxd account. Would be great if I could get her to sign up and then authorise her on one of my lists.
I am so glad this has been suggested. I really want to collaborate on my lists.

We need this... we truly need this!
+1 for this idea - I would like to see the option to invite collaborators (by email address) to join in helping to build a list. The list owner would need the power to remove collaborators and potentially delete specific items.
i also would be very happy to see collaborative lists happen! great idea!!
I was going to suggest this, I would like to share a list with someone
Additional: One could invite other users to a list so there would be groups (friends) working on those lists. Lots of my friends would love such a feature!

Love this idea. Collaborative lists are a must! Similar to Rdio's collaborative playlists.
