Is there any way that I can AT LEAST see what the list was, but ideally get it back? Or am I SOL?

Edit: I’d also recommend that it ask you, before it deletes a list, just to make sure that you actually want to!

Andruw: This isn't guaranteed to work, but I recommend using the Internet Archive (http://web.archive.org) and seeing if they have any past pages for your userpage.

For example, if I were looking for past versions of my page, I would go to the Internet Archive and look for older versions of https://www.imdb.com/user/ur1879600/. You may be able to find a past version of your list linked from a past version of your userpage
As I said, there are no guarantees, but you may indeed be able to find a prior copy of your list that way. Please let us know if that works.

So you think that it would show my list of pages? I don’t know what the list was! I was just trying to swipe back to a movie that I had searched for, and just happened to get the magic combination of it not working, enabling my swipe to reveal the delete button, and then somehow my next swipe counted as a press on the delete button! (Swiping from the side of the screen. I hope that I’m not the only one that does that, lol!)

Andruw: I don't understand. Are you talking about an IMDb list you created, along the same lines as https://www.imdb.com/list/ls072001581/? If you created the list, wouldn't you know what the list was about? Or are you referring to something else entirely?

Hi Andruw,

Could you provide us with further details and information on what you're referring to? Did you create and delete a list like gromit82 referenced: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls072001581/ ?

Yes, I just don’t know which one it was! It was a complete accident, and I didn’t mean to do it, and didn’t see which list it was! If I had, I would have recreated it on my own! Sorry to bother so many people with this! I figured it would just be an easy immediate answer from someone at IMDb! But, thanks so much for all the help!

Could you give your username or link to your profile on the website?

I agree that it seems perhaps too easy to delete a list in the app.

dewlover420. Why?

Yes, it really is. I’ve never had a problem like this before, but recently, I’ve been using my lists way more, and have left it open on my list of lists several times, lol!

Try searching Google for the title of missing list ?
or
Internet Archive Wayback Machine
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.imdb.com/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Archive

EDIT: oooppps  - Already suggested here

Hrm.
Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived.

Andruw: Yes, unfortunately, as ACT_1 indicates, the Internet Archive doesn't appear to have archived your user page in the past, so I don't know another good way to find your missing list.

That really sucks. But, thanks so much for all the help that I’ve received, it’s all been great! I only even thought of asking, because Spotify saves all your playlists, so if you accidentally delete one, you can just bring it back instantly! Not sure if anyone’s ever tried that, but it’s very helpful, because I personally am constantly messing up, especially with accidentally deleting things, lol!
