List numbers are wrong (again)

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 :)

I've long had the same problem with list https://www.imdb.com/list/ls020853190/

At one point (apparently 15Jun), I copied the data out of this list, emptied it, and copied it back in, successfully renumbering everything. But the problem is back, and visible when Exporting the file as well.

confirmed that the position numbers are now sequential, beginning with 1, and the dates are preserved.

I have some lists of my tvshows and I always find them in a different order, switching places randomly. I have a specific order for the list and when this happens it drives me crazy. Can someone explain and help me, please?

Thanks Petcu!
It would also be helpful if you let us know which list items moved (original and new position), and when you noticed the change. We will be able to use this to investigate changes.

The latest random switch I noticed is number 79 and 80. They switched places and I didn’t do it

Thanks, Petcu!

And when approximately did you notice that switch?

Whenever I go to add an item or change a position myself. When my list was shorter there were no problems from what I can remember, since it passed the 200 items mark I think it started to get buggy.

Hi! I am trying to edit a list but unfortunately cannot, as I get many duplicate numbers, for example many fours, threes, etc. I set a duplicate to a different number but the change does not apply even if I save the order and then I get a random number allocation to the items of the list.

Apparently I am facing some kind of error here but cannot fix it.

I recently discovered several errors on my top 250 list, that need fixing. There are three actors with the same list number. On the last actor at the bottom, on the last page has the number 248. Here's a couple of screen shots:
Here's the link to that list (private/non-public setting): https://m.imdb.com/list/ls025521709/?...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Numerical Problem in List-Editing Mode.

Dear IMDb

I am experiencing problems with one of my lists: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls046891728/. In list-edit mode numerical-order does not display correctly - (some numbers are repeated and some numbers do not occur at all). This makes for list-editing, where positioning of new titles is crucial, a real nightmare.

Your help in regards to this issue will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Dear IMDb

Sorry to bother again. I would just like to point out I am experiencing a similar problem in regards to another of my lists: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls000643238/ - The problem occurs on page 9 at number 2124 (In edit mode).

Thanks in advance.
