Today (Dec 6) we are announcing an update to the List pages on the IMDb desktop experience. This update is part of the broader site changes announced recently (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0). After in-depth discussion and examination, we have decided to simplify the features and functionality for lists. We have merged “compact view” and list editing into a single Edit experience. In that one view, you can now modify your text and add, copy, delete and move items. We have also pulled List actions (edit, export, settings) together into a 1-click menu (the 3 vertical dots on the top right of the page). You will now also find two new options in the Refine menu: ‘In Theaters’ and ‘Keywords.’  Tech constraints on the new system prohibit us from continuing to support drag-and-drop from the Edit view; we appreciate your understanding. For more information about Lists, see the IMDb Help Center.

Updated Jan 12:
  • We've improved list display on Your Activity page (aka yourProfile page) so that long list display names wrap to multiple lines.
  • We improved the list creation form so that it now accepts &and + (for list name and description)
  • We’ve improved list item validation. You can no longer addinvalid items-- for example, if you accidentally mistype an image ID you'll getan error message so you can correct it. Also if an image you included is no longer available, you can delete it so your list item count is accurate.
