Hello, i just experienced another problem with the list numbers. (I experienced a very similar issue two months ago and it was solved: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/list-numbers-are-wrong

I was updating the list when i noticed the number for "the portrait of a lady" was wrong:



it is listed as number 555 in the list, even though I typed in 559. The correct number does show when leaving editing mode:



I have found the four missing digits:



I want to continue editing my list but i'm afraid it will mess my order even further. I assume the error is the same that i experienced before and thats the reason why i also posted this message in that board. Thanks for the help :)

Dear IMDb

Would it be at all possible an IMDb staff-member could please acknowledge if they are aware of the numbering problem, in list-editing mode, I am experiencing on this particular list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls027340260/. And if any help may be forthcoming? 

Yours sincerely

SWZlatan, 
Your list is not public, so I can't look at more data than you posted.
But what I see all have the same Date Added.
So I would recommend you make a new list, and move these titles there. With the little check box above the checkbox column, you can move up to 250 titles at a time.
In my experience, the position numbers straighten themselves out.

Or you can wait for IMDb to respond, which is often NOT quick.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled List numbers are wrong.

Hello, I have a problem with the numbers on my list HAYA: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls044452712/

The problem appeared after adding the movie Ad Astra (2019) to the list and move it to position 63. And now it's impossible to edit the list.
