Tracking exact counts of your submissions.

Hi all. As suggested by Michelle and Ozzy, I now come to you all with this topic. I've had several questions regarding the Badges, the substages (chapters, whatever you call it --> after 100,250,500,750,1000, etc.) and, lately, just exactly how many new names I have added. I like to be able to

Trivia Subsections

Videos Order in a Preferential Manner

Hi IMDb, I'd like to make a suggestion of improvement: a possibility to replace / re-upload videos without losing the link, or a definitive way to rearrange the order of how they appear on the site. If I have to correct any old trailer or clip published and re-upload, it'll appear in front of all
