Every time I try to edit my watchlist, I click save and it just says "an error occurred, please try again". It's driving me crazy.

I don't really know what you mean by "click save". Here's the screen on the desktop version:

There's a "Save List Order" link, and there's a Done button. 

Or are you on the iOS or Android app?

For what type(s) of Edit does the error occur?

I'm just trying to change the watch order for a couple of films, and it doesn't matter if I click 'Save list order' or 'done', both come up with the same error:

For IMDb staff to help, you might want to post the URL of your list.

Hi Saline,

I've tried to reproduce the issue but wasn't able to. Please attempt the following:
- log out of IMDb and back in using a different device or browser, then try to reorder
- adjust your watchlist to Private in "Settings"
- double-check you are not listing any two items with the same order number

If you have tried the above and are still having trouble, please write us back with the specific items you are attempting to move and a description of the steps you are taking.

Thanks in advance!
