I used to have fun casually making silly lists for myself, as well as watchlists, schedules and Best of Year lists for my work as a buff and critic.Fist off, the format gobbles up memory like an SOB. This is bad for me, because I make long lists and have RAM issues. The pages take so long to load, render and process activity, and sometimes crash. I have to be careful when I scroll, because doing that often freezes my computer solid for 2-4 minutes, then slows it to a crawl afterwards.I blame the above issue on there now being title buttons and rating abilities in the editing phase. Why? This essentially ensures that the list items are embedded upon their addition, and that managing them from there is hell.That blasted checkbox!!! Like an incompetent dictator, it rules list arrangement with its idiocy, joining with "Change" buttons to refresh already slow-acting pages to shift things. Changing an item's position requires selecting that box, typing the item's new rank, and selecting "Save List Order". You no longer drag the item up or down, and change only one's position at a time. It's some of the most amateur and perfunctory arrangement formatting I've ever worked with.I'm too worn out and angry to even try going into what I think about typing notes under my items. Jst rest assured that everything about the list-making process is much, much, much worse. It feels like a nightmare, quite frankly. For years, making lists has been my main connection to IMDB, and now O'm fixing to take my business to Letterboxd. IMDB, return the old format, improve the new, or quietly go to hell. If not, I at least got to vent as publicly as I wanted to.
