How to see all plot submissions I have made (outlines, summaries, synopses) in one place?

Over the years, I have submitted quite a few plot outlines and summaries for different types of titles on imdb.com, both for films and TV shows, and am now slowly getting into submitting synopses as well.

I looked at some of the older topics and am aware that by clicking on my username at the end of the outline/summary, it only loads the plot summaries (not the outlines nor the synopses). Not a great set-up in my opinion, but if that's how it is, then that's how it is, I guess. As an example of what page I mean, I'll post mine:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?plot_author=nihilistening

However, I have now noticed that on top of not displaying the plot outlines or synopses, this list doesn't even display all of the summaries - it only seems to show the summaries for films, meaning that it is excluding summaries for TV shows (and possibly for some other types of titles). An example of this would be the summary for this TV show https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5827900/plotsummary - as you can see, it was authored by me; however, if you click on my username, which leads to my Plot Author Matching page, this very same TV show title is not listed.

So the current logic of displaying a user's contributions is even worse than I thought - the "Plot Author Matching" page currently only shows a very limited number of my plot contributions. Is there really no way of seeing ALL of my plot contributions on a SINGLE page? I mean, I guess I could dig through my IMDB contribution history for this data, but there's got to be an easier way.

Hello

Thanks for your post.

We currently do not have a page where we can display all this information for you.

I have changed this thread into an idea so we can get an idea of popularity for the suggestion!

Thanks!

Thanks. Hopefully, quite some people will vote for this. Given the fact IMDb is a database, one of the most important is that it is easy to find (lists of) data.

This is actually quite interesting, didn’t even know that. It really seems that if you click the name/nickname (By:lines), it doesn’t list Plot Outlines at all.
