Please Bring Back the Old Format for Creating Lists.

Remmember the old way of making lists. You create one, you add in what movie or person you want to make the list about and then you click on the added profile and move it up or down to the position you want it in. 

Nowadays you have to sort through the list by first adding a film or person, and then you have to add the exact number you want that profile to be seen at. 

Say I want to rank things like 
1 JD
2 JB
3 JM
4 JT

I have to not only make sure I add JT last but if I have a list where I've already got JD & JM outt of the numerical order I want them in, then instead of simply moving the JB in the middle, I have to remember its order at #2 on the list. 

It's not easy compared to what it used to be and it makes the fun of Listing so much more dull that I tend not to bother making them anymore and all the ones I've got in Private are just laying there cause I'm afraid I'll muck something up.

I believe you might want to vote for and/or comment on some of these Idea posts about the same issue:
Lists: Drag and Drop needs to return
Lists: Restore drag and drop for list editing
There was "Slide & Change The Row" thing in the list editor. Please can you bring that to new list editor?

I haven't read through those posts again today, but I think somewhere IMDb says that the iOS (Apple) App for IMDb provides drag-and-drop capability for ordering lists.

Thanks have been doing it just now. It's really bad how IMDb is not doing something about this, I don't think I've heard many people praise it. 

I love list making on IMDb, Was a very fun feature that I still (struggle to) use today. Just want the old drag and drop format back. It's so annoying how I can't use it and I have this ancient Number tagging thing. It even sucks that everytime I update something the whole page refreshes and stuff.
