I'm trying to share a station with my friend, but the link just creates a new station for them from my original seed. It doesn't transfer the thumbed up tracks. I'm pretty sure I'm following the directions correctly

Thanks for following up, @IslandMacGuy.
Can you also please verify that both of your accounts are set to Public?
Thanks for checking on that for me.
They are set to public.
@IslandMacGuy One more question - it looks like you posted to the Community from two different accounts:
Which of these accounts are you unable to make that shared station your own?
Let me know.
I'm having a similar issue. I have shared the station from my husband's account to my account now (family plan) but it doesn't give me an option to thumbs up anything or to make it my own -- what am I missing?
@grrlwhit03 Have you tried listening to that station on a computer yet?
At the moment there's no way to make them "your own" on the Pandora mobile app. For now, you will have to sign into Pandora on your computer (http://www.pandora.com) and give any song in the station a Thumbs-up/down rating. Then indicate that you want to make the station your own (not shared).
The next time you open the app on your device the Thumbs options should appear as normal.
Let me know if this helps.
I don't see a thumbs up/down on the web version -- I'm sure I missing it somewhere since I'm fighting with a computer reformat at the same time LOL Can you help me out, please? Thank you!!
@grrlwhit03 Happy to look into this further.
Can you please send me a screenshot of what you are seeing?
Also what is the name of the station that was shared to your account?
Let me know.
Thanks for sending that over, @grrlwhit03.
It looks like a playlist was shared with you - not a station. Thumb ratings are only a feature when listening to stations - not playlists.
Stations on Pandora Premium are guided by thumb feedback or added seeds, like Pandora and Pandora Plus stations. While listening to a station you can thumb up or down songs from the Now Playing screen to help us learn what to play next.
Playlists, on the other hand, are guided by listener's choice. This means you can add only the songs you want to hear, and sequence the playlist yourself.
This being said, no further action is needed on your end to make this playlist your own. It looks like that playlist is already a part of your collection.
Hope this helps clarify!
