Why has the edit list feature been so buggy lately?
I'll echo what many have already said in the past ten days- something is horribly wrong with the numbering system on the list feature. This bug has been a pain in the neck for years, but it was usually manageable, something that would only come up every few months. Now I can't go a single day on this site without one or more of my lists getting completely screwed up by this bug.
I don't want to share the link to said list so you can fix it because there's no point; it's happened on multiple lists, many of which I've created from scratch to work around this stupid issue, so fixing the list itself would just be a Band-Aid. When a new list I create to avoid the problems of the old list winds up having the exact same problems the very next day, it's obviously a systemic issue that needs to be addressed site wide, not on a case by case basis.
Why have occurrences of this bug increased so dramatically the past two weeks? And is there anything anyone is doing to actually fix it?
The list feature is one of the few reasons I keep using IMDb over sites like Letterboxd, but if this issue persists I might just give up and take my traffic elsewhere. I use this site to help me relax, but it's impossible to do that when a bug consistently kills all my momentum and forces me to backtrack.
