User Lists disappeared from "public" - 0 views

My user list was public for two weeks and had around 15 random visitors a day. I created a ranking and wrote comments under the individual series. After two weeks, I created a second user list. After that, my lists were blocked for the public by imdb. I don't know the reason. So I have now created a third list without comments, but apparently this one also is not allowed to be seen publicly either. I have already changed my commented user lists from "public" to "private" because I suspect that something contradicts the imdb guidelines. But why is my non-commented user list ("My Favorite Series For Men Over 39"), which is the only one still "public", not allowed to be seen by random users? Thanks for an answer!

Hi there,

 

 

 Your list is public  'My Favorite Series For Men Over 39' and can be seen by anyone.

 

Additionally, please change the status of your other two lists to 'public', the problem should be fixed, but if you need more help let us know and we will assist.

Dear Mrs. Sally
Thank you very much for answering my question! My list "A Ranking of the Best Series in the World for Men Over 45" still found about 15 random imdb readers a day, even though I didn't link it to anyone. I am over 50 years old and my friends are not interested in my old big hobby "watching TV series". I wanted to share my interests on imdb.
I wrote many - probably 100 comments - on each series to explain their essence. On the 16th day after I added a 2nd list ("Fantasy Trash Series I Like", later "Fantasy Kitch Series I LIke"), the views dropped to zero. Suspecting I had violated the imdb guidelines somewhere in my long comment texts, I set both lists to "private" and made a list without comments: "My Favorite Series For Men Over 39". You probably remember that until recently imdb showed the age and gender of imdb raters, which was very useful to me. What good is the information about how popular a series is in Finland? 
Of course, I have no chance of finding the text passage that caused my user list to be blocked by imdb so that it no longer appears randomly in the right-hand column for some imdb users. So I keep my commented lists "private" and the uncommented list "public" - in the hope that you will unblock me.

Hello @PaulchenPanther7,

I have checked your account and I don't see any blocked lists. You should be able to set your lists as public whenever you want without any problem.

However, if you encounter any problems, please let us know so we can help you.
