I have a problem sorting my list. Whenever I select "Date Added" for "Sort By" it takes me to this link, which does not work: http://www.imdb.com/list/Z9g4sQSRMH8/...

However, if I manually delete "=Z9g4sQSRMH8" from the address bar and push enter it will take me here, which is correct: http://www.imdb.com/list/Z9g4sQSRMH8/...

This can't be how your website is supposed to work.

I was able to replicate the problem.

The qualifier, "&lists=Z9g4sQSRMH8" should not be appended to the link
http://www.imdb.com/list/Z9g4sQSRMH8/?start=1&view=detail&sort=created:desc&defaults=1
This appears to be a recent bug, since I've sorted one of my lists by date last week.

I've actually had this problem for months and months. Although sometimes it goes away and comes back.

I don't sort by date very often, so I must have been lucky.

Sort by date is pretty much the only way I sort lists. Fortunately, I only have one list so a while ago I just bookmarked a link to that list sorted by date. I've been meaning to tell somebody about it for forever but I encountered it again today and I was finally like "Okay, no more crazy work arounds - Just tell somebody!"
