Lists: Add people to lists directly from name pages

When i want to add an actor, actress or director to my people list, i have to go and edit list and search after that i could add those people. It's very difficult and long to do that. There should be a button like watchlist on people's page too. But there's no button yet. You should definitely add such a thing to the people's page.

This idea was suggested over two years ago and is a popular idea. I also clicked the like button shortly after it was suggested. Since it appears that it will not be implemented any time soon, here is a work around, albeit not as convenient.

1. Create a person list. For sake of argument call it: "My Favorite People".
2. Whenever you find a person page of one of your favorite people, open the list in on window and edit it.
3. Copy the link to the people page to the search box at the bottom of the page labeled: "Add a name to this list:".
4. Click the yellow Search button.
5. Only one person should appear in the search list. Click the name.
6. Optionally add a description for that new entry.
7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 until you are finished.
8. Click the yellow Done button.

About... every single person on IMDb already does that... and it is not at all different than adding by name and it is why this suggestion is made. Sure it is good for names below the scrollbar, but other than that... useless.

There's simply no alternatives to this suggestion and it is a SHAME IMDb doesn't care what we think. The only possible alternative could be, if at all possible, a Greasemonkey script, which will require someone to write, and keep it up to date.

You r right, imdb do something !! Could be so easy, like a subscription list, so you get a newsfeed to your favorite actor: news, published movies, announced future movies and and and.....

This feature would be very useful, and I'm surprised it's not already a feature! As great as all the other extra features suggested here sound, just a basic 'Add to List' button with a dropdown menu to select which list on every actor's profile would be perfect. Please add this!

I asked the same question five years ago (where there was no getsatisfaction yet for imdb), and there is still NO BUTTON! I don't know why this should be so difficult.

I can`t belive this has been discussed for over 3 years and haven`t got solved yet. I have strugled in the last year manually adding actors to several lists like "favourite actors , favorite directors" etc. and just found this option could have been implemented a long time ago but hasn`t. Please imdb staff look into it.

Very frustrating to get no feedback. I think IMDb is run by very impassionate people...

Whenever the people who "run" IMDb give feedback, they usually point out that a beneficial feature will not be implemented at anytime within the next ten years, while not really providing feedback on useless or problematic ideas. They leave it to contributors, customers and regular users to present criticisms. This may have something to do with the staff lacking an ordinary person's perspective of interactions with the website. I don't know.
