I know this is not super important but it's really annoying me and I was hoping somebody could help me with this.

So I have this list where I put YouTube-related titles on (
but something happened, not sure what, and now the order seems to be whatever it wants to be. Like for example, normally the order (when editing it) goes 1,2,3,4,5 etc. But the beginning of my list looks list looks like this: (couldn't upload screenshot so ill just type it:) 1,1,1,3,3,4,5,5,6,8,10...
Really random.
And every time in want to order a new title it's never the number I want it to be. Like let's say I want to put something at #50. Then it just ends up at 46 or 58 or something.
So I have to calculate the number every time in order to get it to the right place and even then it sometimes seems to randomly change where it will end up. I'm really tired of doing this with every title I add until it's finally in the right place.

Now I have tried just editing the right number next to all of the titles at once but that did nothing at all. The only thing I can think of is making a new list with the same titles. But what if that list just does the same thing again?

So does anybody know what might have caused this? And can I fix it?
P.s. I tried to edit the list on other devices too see if it was on my PC only but it has this problem everywhere.

I'm not sure to understand your problem, I copied your list into another list that I just created and I don't encounter any problem.

So I suggest that you create another list and copy/paste this list into it. As you described the problem, it seems that the problem is from your list and not your device. So it should fix the situation.

Ok, done. The order is normal again. Let's hope it doesn't have the same problem. But at least I know how to fix it now.
