    @ Lise - I know this is an old thread, but any users running into the issue that you mentioned can see if they've already added a film to a list by visiting the film page, activating the menu by hovering over the poster image, selecting 'Show in lists', and then changing the sort feature to "You' instead of 'Everyone'. Unfortunately, this solution only works with public lists.

    I had posted about this back in September: http://feedback.letterboxd.com/forums/136771-general/suggestions/3204845-add-multiple-or-categorize-watchlist

    The Watchlist is one of my favorite features on the site, and the way you guys have designed it makes it very easy to add/remove movies to that list, and to see if a movie is in there already. The downside of the feature is that the ease of adding movies to the list, coupled with few sorting options (though there are more that have since been added), have made it very easy for that list to balloon considerably, and in turn have made it sort of a black hole for users.

    I finally reorganized my 600+ film Watchlist last week, opting instead for private genre lists so that I can quickly pick a movie when I know what I'm in the mood to watch. There are some considerable drawbacks to this though:

    1.) No Netflix integration makes it tedious to find the medium through which I have to watch the movie.
    2.) Movies, once marked as watched, are not removed from these lists. This is perhaps the most user-friendly feature of the Watchlist in its current state. Note: I'm not suggesting they should be removed automatically, but I have to go through and manually remove them, which is somewhat unpleasant as well.
    3.) My number of (what I'd call un-useful, meaning not used in their desired intent) lists has also ballooned quite a bit, and I'm even combining some genres.

    Now, allowing users to create subsections of their Watchlists would address all three of those issues. The "Coming Soon" sort options would be great further additions to this feature as well. Plus, it would make it easier to navigate others' lists as well. If I wasn't out of votes, I'd give this suggestion 10!

    My current watchlist is 500 films deep. Trying to find something to watch strictly from flipping through the cover view is a bit tedious.

    If we could categorize films within the watchlist (I might do my own by genre) it might offer some relief. Then, when the film is watched, it would still disappear from your watchlist instead of having to be manually removed from a list you've created.

    For those lists/reviews that you'd like to reference without having to sift through the "Likes" page.

    A spinoff of this idea might be to let community members add these to diary entries/reviews also. Clerkdogs.com did something similar with their "human-powered movie recommendations"...oh, how I miss that site!

    Would make this feature available when looking at personal and others' lists also.

    Matthew,

    How frequently does Letterboxd update from TMDb? Part of the process that's frustrating here is that even if you take the time to add the movie to the site, you may not see it on Letterboxd for a few hours, or in cases of updating artwork, a few days.

    It doesn't seem like it's updating at any regular interval. Can you give us some insight?

    We’re thinking more about this now that our API is nearing.

    In the meantime, note that you can block any member from following you or posting comments on your content (look for the Flag icon on the member’s page).

    I don't think having to approve all followers really addresses the issue as the activity still remains public, but I understand your point about keeping things easy to maintain server-side. I just think that you might see this feature being asked for as the site continues to grow in popularity and gain more subscribers.

    You guys have done a great job so far.

    Private lists are supported (there’s a checkbox to keep a list private to just its owner). We plan to offer some options around how your profile page is configured, what is promoted, etc. Thanks for the feedback.

    Josh commented  · 

    Just FYI, Matthew, I thought the private list would accomplish what I was trying to outline in my post on this issue (goo.gl/nCV4o), but if you've rated/marked the movies in list as "seen", they still show up in the ratings category in your profile, and subsequently on all of the movie details pages, so unfortunately it's still not ideal.
