For the last few weeks I've been unable to sort my lists by the date they were modified. This makes it extremely difficult to browse my lists, as I have hundreds of them and there are a few that I update regularly.

I just wanted to give a quick update on this. Our software developers are working on this. The sort order was changed as a temporary fix to address a different issue regarding lists. We are hoping to be able to revert to displaying lists in 'modified' order soon, once we have verified the the original issue which triggered the change has been fixed, probably within the next few weeks.

palamp, I remember seeing your posting on the original IMDb Help Board regarding this issue.

The chronological order sort for modified works:
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...

The reverse chronological order sort for modified does not work:
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...

All the remaining sorts of a user's lists also work:.
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0127678/li...

In addition, the lists that appear in the "Other Lists By [Author]" are the last five lists modified excluding the list currently displayed.

List shown on a user's profile are also correctly shown in reverse chronological order, i.e., most recently edit lists are shown first.
