On 11th December 2017, I had to date written 11,802 reviews, if remembered correctly, including the ten I submitted that day. Since the new layout was enforced, I now only have 11,786 reviews, meaning that overnight 16 of my reviews went missing or are not displaying. I only have access to a paltry 20 (my most recent ones), so I have absolutely no way of knowing which ones have gone missing so resubmitting anything is impossible.
Just for the record too, I certainly didn't delete any of my reviews and as far as I am aware I haven't in any way violated any terms and conditions (which is more than can be said for a lot of other reviewers on this site) to warrant any deletion, if somehow I have it was unintentional. I would appreciate it please if this was investigated and solved, meaning all the reviews recovered and reinstated, because this has really confused and worried me. I am also wondering whether anybody else is having the same problem or whether it's just me.

Thank you for responding. I do honestly think though that it has more to do with that this new layout is in its very rookie stages and has affected old data. I have to say though that as helpful as you're trying to be, I am rather confused by the response. It is sounding like reviews of mine have gone missing because I have revealed my age in my profile and that there has been suspicion over how I have written so many reviews over a short period of time, both of which are quite frankly ridiculous. So this post is to make things clear.
Regarding the age thing, I have not revealed my age in nearly five years in my reviews, altogether maturing my writing style and learning that it was becoming a peeve of some users (really don't know why, a lot of people cite their age to put an end to the condescending generalisations regarding people make about gender and age linked to film taste) and if it bothers people that much that it has been cited in my biography I will delete the bio altogether while still having the picture, ratings and reviews. Also that idea regarding relevance for users is incredibly prejudicial. Who are they to imply that younger viewers have no credibility when it comes to film taste and they certainly have no business making questions about relevance.
There are actually a lot of beyond their years and un-biased "teenage girls" and just as many 60 plus users with a holier than thou attitude and prone to making all the overused and abused words and phrases. When it comes to stuff like My Little Pony, Twilight and such most of the condescension or their fan-base come from the 20-50 age range of both genders, so can the generalisations regarding teenagers seriously stop. I am hardly the first reviewer to reveal my age, nor the only prolific reviewer to do so. Plus I was certainly not too young when I first joined, if so I would have been told and I've seen prolific reviewers admitting writing their first reviews when they were younger than me.
As for the how many reviews thing, which is something I have been asked and personally attacked for, I am, and I am sorry for the defensiveness, getting really sick and tired of having to justify something that really should not be questioned. I have actually already justified here on the announcement for the review updates. I may have done a four year full time degree music course and a one year part time one, but in case people haven't noticed, most of my reviews during this window were regarding opera, musicals, galas and ballet. Things that were related to the course and watched as part of it. Also that I enjoy going to and watching them.
In case nobody knows I am also disabled, physically and mentally, meaning a job that suits my limited needs is difficult. When I have written a large number of reviews, it is during a free day and often during rough patches in my life. I am recovering from ill health at the moment, recovering from injuries sustained in a serious epileptic fit in public, being part of IMDb and writing reviews has really helped me through the recovery process and getting through the rough patches. That's why I do them, not just for fun, broadening my film knowledge and maturing my writing style but because it helps me relax rather than giving up on obstacles. That's why the inaccessibility of the user reviews system at the moment has been an unsettling blow to me. Maybe people should start considering all that before making judgements about me, some with malice intended with knowledge of my sensitivity (which I can have real difficulty controlling sometimes, which comes through sometimes in my reviews when I take offense at a comment made elsewhere).
If that was not what you were trying to say, I'm genuinely sorry of any potential upset. I in no way mean to be rude or over-heated, I actually hate doing so and actually one of my biggest character flaws apparently is how scared I can get upsetting or offending anyone. I have in the past and trying to learn from past mistakes, another thing that comes across from how there was such a big change in how I wrote from my early reviews to my later ones. I'm just anxious to have this review problem sorted and for the review system to be made more accessible. Am also feeling a lot of pain and guilt as it was my fault the fit happened so I can do without something riling me up and that it's the two things that rile me up the most regarding IMDb makes it worse.
Thank you for trying to respond though, it is appreciated.

The old user review system had an issue which in some cases would create duplicate reviews by the same author on the same title (or it would allow them in cases when the same title appeared twice on IMDb and was later merged). When the reviews were transferred into the new system, any duplicates were removed. This accounts for the difference in counts between the old and the new systems.

All your reviews are accessible at http://www.imdb.com/user/ur20552756/reviews is the "Load more" not working for you?
