https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?languages=de&sort=num_votes,asc

As you see in the above, it says "1-50 titles."

The second link shows "1-50 of 102,098 titles."

I think sorting it by date of rating is the only option for which the amount of search results is not displayed.

Apologies if this bug has already been mentioned by somebody else.

I do not have any Ratings for anything so I get:
 
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?languages=de&sort=your_rating_date,asc
German (Sorted by Date of Your Rating Ascending)
No results.
 
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?languages=de&sort=num_votes,asc
German (Sorted by Number of Votes Ascending)
1-50 of 102,098 titles.

Of course you do, my robot friend. There is no 1/0 rating system on imdb.

I used your link for sorting by rating date, and saw what you report. I clicked on each other type of sorting, and it is the only sort that omits the "of n" information.

Edited to add:
"of n" showed up on the last page of the rating date results, in my case, and that is the last (301) title shown:


But when I sort by Your Rating, it continues the list beyond 301:


So "of n" is not the only difference in the rating-date sort.

Hi all,

Thanks for reporting this issue. I've forwarded this information to our engineering team for further investigation.

We'll update this thread once we receive further information.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Hello all,

Thanks for your continued patience. Our engineering team has confirmed that this is currently working as expected. For all other sort methods, you will see your current position (e.g. "1-50") as well as the total number of results for that search query (e.g. "of 103,710"); for "Date of Your Rating" sorting, you will only see the current position (e.g. "1-50").

I've updated this post to an "Idea" where it can be reviewed by other IMDb staff and users for consideration for future updates.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.
