Hi. I already have 999 watch lists in my account and I can not create more. I would like to know if it is possible to expand this number and how to do it. Thanks.

Hi Isidoro,
Let us consider the opposite stand: what is your need that lead you to have 999 watch lists?

No sorry, not at the present time. We have converted this into an idea so other people can vote / comment.

Not even a movie lover who is ten years old (and expected to live to be an old senior citizen) needs an IMDb watch list with more than a thousand items.

I may be wrong but I believe Isidoro means they have made 999 lists, not 999 titles on one list.

I too have had this problem. Being a pollmaker, we are encouraged to save the lists that have been published as polls. If you delete a list you can go never go back and edit the poll. If something is a problem, the list has to be remade and the stats from the original poll (votes) are deleted. For example, in a poll about sports teams owned by actors, one of the teams contacted us 2+ years after the poll was published about a team naming error. I had deleted the list since it had been live so long and I needed room to make more new lists. Instead I had to remake the list and it was published, writing over the old list and losing the 5k+ votes that IMDb'ers had made. Those can't be gotten back, and the chances of those same 5k+ voters re-voting on it is clearly very slim. Nobody knows that that poll has been wiped out so it will be lucky to get 100 votes...

I have nearly 600 published polls. I've had to delete several lists from live polls in order to be able to make new lists for new polls. I currently have 991 polls, which means I can only make 8 more lists.

I know this has been a problem for other pollmakers as it has been a discussion point on our board as well.

(On that note, it doesn't look as though IMDb Champions can create "announcement"-type topics.)
