Hi Kevin,

Please delete the app and attempt to add to the same list using the desktop version of IMDb, then download the app again and try to add a new item to the same list.

Hi Kevin,

How many titles do you have on your watchlist?

That is correct, you'll have to remove items to add more.

But why not limit it to 100/200? There are more movies / series then 10k in the collection ?

You might take a realistic audit of your watchlist.
I have to do this on my DVR on a smaller scale every so often.
I'll record something to watch later, and never get around to it.
So I delete it.
Maybe you need to take stock of what you wanna watch and what you realistically can watch.
At one time I had rated 14,000 TV and Movie titles. It took me 45 years to watch all of those.
Look at how many titles you have now rated. Then extrapolate how many titles you think you can watch realistically with the amount of time you have left to be alive.
I'd be willing to bet that you'll never get through those 10,000.
So do a "Bucket list" whittling down to a more realistic number. You could get hit by a bus tomorrow. Nice thing is if you make a pact to yourself that if you add another title, that you "Must" watch one, and rate and remove one, your list won't ever be that large.

IMDb adds every episode of a serie apart , you do it in 45 years I do it since my first add in 2011 , it’s absurd that your watchlist can’t be bigger then 10k

Mine IS NOT a watch list. it's 14,000 TV Series and Movies watched. *,00 of those are TV series. And in my day, that was usually 8 years average at 30 shows per year.
Do the math. That's a S-Load of hours watched.
You're not getting my drift.
