Titles deleted from IMDb cannot be removed from lists

One of the titles on my list has been deleted from IMDb but it is still occupying a slot on my list. It says "This title is no longer available", and I cannot delete it or get rid of it any other way. Either remove deleted titles from lists, or at least give users the possiblity to delete these pointless entries from their lists themselves. Thank You!

hi aabend,

Thank you for reporting this problem.

If your list is public, would you please post a link to the list here and the sequence number (the number in front of the deleted item)? This may aid in determining the cause of the problem.

This has happened to me. Sometimes I've left it on the list to make a point (the third 28 X Later film, for example) but usually you've just got to remove it and you can do it from the list, as the option of deleting it via the title is gone.

So edit the list, go to the relevant page and move your mouse over the title you want removed. A small X appears in the top right of the box, clicking that removes the item and you can save the list to complete the process.

I have the same problem with two titles on my "watchlist". They occupy a post on the list when in "edit" mode, but doesn't show up in either of the "actual" list views.
The title doesn't show, only the text "This title is no longer available".

When I hover over the post there's no X showing that would enable me to delete it, no tick box or any other way to mark it etc. etc.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Undeletable items in watchlist/checkins.

Sorry for the delay.  I have brought this to the attention of the appropriate team via ticket #0047821178

This should now be fixed.  Please let us know if there are further problems, thanks.

I am having this problem on 3 of my current lists. A hard reset of my browser's cache does not solve the problem.

for example, the number 6 on this list is missing / not appearing.

I have created my own post before discovering this one.

browser's cache has nothing to do with it, the problrm is clearly on imdb's side

if i check out your list, number 6 is completely missing, 7 follows after 5

Yeah, I tried the cache thing because it was stated in another list's solution comment. But that didn't work indeed. 

I have three lists where 1 deleted title + it's numbering is completely missing.

maybe you need to open a new topic as I am not sure staff members are still looking in here with the topic's age and solved status
