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 :)

Dear IMDb

I have noticed Álex Sánchez Ballestín has confirmed that the list-editing problem has been solved on his side. However, though I brought the identical issue to your attention soon after the first posting, my issue has yet to be solved. Due to the fact that no feedback has been given, I have no idea what the situation may be from your side. Therefor, I think it is appropriate that I should inquire about it.

Your sincerely

Dear IMDb

What will it take to resolve this issue? The "In Progress" tag has been displayed for 3 Weeks and even after notification that the ticket has been reopened, 5 days ago, nothing has been done.
This is the list in question: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls046891728/. The numbering sequence in edit mode is: 1, 2, 2, 3 to 95, 98 to 251.

Thanks in advance.

Dear IMDb

Once again I am experiencing a numbering issue on my "The A-Z Music Video Jukebox" list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls027340260/. I would really appreciate if one of your staff members could look into this problem.

Thanks in advance.

I would just like to add; this problem is only visible in list-editing mode.

And, I suspect, when you Export the list.

I see I am the only one with this problem. One of my lists is all messed up! https://www.imdb.com/list/ls042553298/ I have been trying to put the right numbers in but it keeps coming up with absurd stuff like in the screen capture below.

Never mind... I deleted the bloody thing and did it anew.

Thanks for not helping, IMDb people... ^^

Dear IMDb

Would it be at all possible an IMDb staff-member could please acknowledge if they are aware of the numbering problem, in list-editing mode, I am experiencing on this particular list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls027340260/. And if any help may be forthcoming? 

Yours sincerely

SWZlatan, 
Your list is not public, so I can't look at more data than you posted.
But what I see all have the same Date Added.
So I would recommend you make a new list, and move these titles there. With the little check box above the checkbox column, you can move up to 250 titles at a time.
In my experience, the position numbers straighten themselves out.

Or you can wait for IMDb to respond, which is often NOT quick.

Sorry I had not realized that the list was not public. Thanks for the recommendation, but first i will wait for IMDb staff to respond.
