Titles on User Lists No Longer Linking

Hello, all.

It would seem as though titles on any given user list are no longer linking with those individual titles' main pages.

I have a lengthy user list I've been working on for a few months now and, up until recently, all the titles added to this list have been linking to their respective pages.  (In other words, my list appears alongside others' lists on each of those titles' main pages.)

But ever since the beginning of August, titles being added to the list are no longer linking, even after almost a week.

For example:

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls500830102/?sort=list_order,asc&st_dt=&mode=detail&page=4

On this list, titles 1-335 are linking, but 335 onward are not.

And

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls084018168/

on this list, to which I started adding titles on August 3, not a single one of them has been linking.

This issue doesn't seem to be exclusive to my own lists.  There are lists by other users that I've been following that are having the same problem -- none of their recently-added titles are linking to their respective main pages, even after several days.

@steve_michaud,

335 and beyond appear to work for me. This may have been a temporary problem.

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls500830102/?sort=list_order,asc&st_dt=&mode=detail&page=4

335. Trapper John, M.D. (1979–1986)
Episode: 'Til Life Do Us Part (1980)

336. Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears (1980)

337. Paul's Case (1980 TV Movie)

338. Blake's 7 (1978–1981)
Episode: City at the Edge of the World (1980)

Oops.  I meant 336 onward.  Sorry.

But the problem does still seem to be ongoing.  Looking at #338 (just as an example), I do see other user lists on that page, but not my own.

https://www.imdb.com/lists/tt0500237/

And that particular title was added on August 6, so it should be showing up by now.

Hi steve_michaud -

Just to clarify the issue, the series and episode titles within your lists are eing linked, however, your List is not displaying among the "User Lists" section for some of these titles?

So for example, your list for "Rewinding the '80s, Part I: 1980" is not displaying under the User List section for the "Blake's 7"series, episode "City at the Edge of the World", is that correct?

@Michelle 

That is correct. 

What makes this case so odd, however, is that the list in question is featured in among the "User Lists" section for the first 335 titles, but not for 336 onward.  It seems as though any titles added to any list since at least August 3 are not displaying said lists under their respective "User Lists" section.

As another example, if you look at my other list, "untitled 2021 list," most of those titles were added on August 3.  Yet if you look at the "User Lists" section of any of those titles, this list does not appear on any of them.

And as I mentioned in my original post, this problem doesn't seem to be exclusive to my own lists.  There are lists by other users that I follow regularly, and any titles those users have recently added to those lists aren't "linking," either, even though all other titles on the same lists are.

It's bizarre.

Hi steve_michaud -

Thanks for confirming.  Yes, this is odd, I have filed a ticket for the appropriate technical team to investigate further and pinpoint the issue.

As soon as I have an update I will relay that information to you here.

Cheers!

Two weeks ago I just deleted a Swazi film called "Umshana" and added another title called "The swimmer is heartbroken" as the best Swazi film in my best film per country list. However, in Umshana's page in its lists it appears as I still have it in my best film per country, although if you get into the list you won't see it and you'll see the other title, and also in "The swimmer is heartbroken" page you won't see any list like I never included it in my best film per country. It is strange, because it had never happened to me, although I am a member 11 years and I added so far many lists and titles which didn't exist here.
