Dear friends at the IMDb Pro Help desk,

As much as I like IMDb and it's great qualities I must say that the "Other Works" section is extremely messy.

One of these reason is that the date are all mixed up there is no sense of chronology. A list may start in 2010 and finish in 1989. Even when I added the updates I took the time to put them in order. Below is good example of it.

Is there anyways that the site can detect the year and put everything in chronological order?

Also when you want to add credit to a Musician there is no guidelines, only to book writers, commercial, stage play, and video clips (now videos clips are allowed to be listed).

Here is my suggestion on how it should look like. I'll take the rapper "Method Man" since he's got a group (Wu Tang Clan), a duo group (Method Man & Redman), a solo career, a featured guest on a song, a featured guest on a song with another artist or group, featured guest with his group, and featured guest with his group with another artist or group. 

Singles
(1994) Single: "Bring The Pain". New: Def Jam. ISMN 04228539654

With his group. 
(1993) Album with his group Wu Tang Clan: "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)". New York: Loud. ISMN 078636633626 

With his duo group 
(1999) Album with his duo group Method Man & Red Man: "Blackout!". New York: Def Jam. ISMN 0731454660921 

Solo 
(1998) Album: "Tical 2000: Judgement Day". New York: Def Jam. ISMN 0731455892024 

A featured guest on a song. 
(1994) Featured guest on the song "The What" by the artist Notorious BIG on the Album "Ready to Die". New York: Bad Boy. ISMN 0786127300024 

A featured guest on a song with another artist. 
(2005) Featured guest alongside Paul Wall on the song "Still on It" by the artist Ashanti on the Album "Collectables by Ashanti". New York: Def Jam. ISMN 0602498879986 

Featured guest with his group on a song 
(1999) Featured guest with his group "Method Man & Redman" on the song "Left & Right" by the artist D'Angelo on the Album "Voodoo". Hollywood: Virgin. ISMN 0724384849924 

Featured guest with his group on a song with another artist 
(1997) Featured guest with his group "Method Man & Redman" alongside DMX and Canibus on the song "4, 3, 2, 1" by the artist LL Cool J on the Album "Phenomenon". New York: Def Jam. ISMN 07731453918627 

I must say IMDb is the greatest movie web site ever, but the Other Section still needs serious improvement.

Thanks
