Hello, I have a problem with the numbers on my list HAYA:

The problem appeared after adding the movie Ad Astra (2019) to the list and move it to position 63. And now it's impossible to edit the list.

Normal view:

I hope it can be solved; I want to continue editing the list but i'm afraid it will mess my order even further.

It tends to take a while for IMDb to respond to this problem, but they are able to fix it. With the pandemic, it might take even longer if they are short-staffed.

If you are willing to sacrifice the dates you added the titles to your list, you could just copy (or move) the entire contents out to a new list. I've never seen/heard that the problem follows to the new list (I have had the problem myself). With over 2500 titles, it'll take 11 copy/moves to get the titles to a new list (by using the checkbox that selects all titles on the page), and you can proceed to edit the new list. If you have links elsewhere to this list and you'd rather keep this url, you could move the titles out and then back again.

Just wanted to offer the option.
