Allow other works to be re-ordered

Hi.

"Other Works" section is a pretty good place to add commercials, radio, theater, books, music videos, audio recordings, etc - BUT it still doesn't support year order. Based on the older thread about two years ago, Col kinda hinted that this could be possible at some point. Any progress on that one?

In some cases year order can be very out of place and it's literally impossible to add "everything" at once so that you could keep the chronological year order. So this could be a big improvement.

Thanks.

Eboy, a bit of the problem is that music videos and commercials are now fully eligible as titles, with many succesful director adding everything they did in that area (eg. David Fincher, Melina MatsoukasMatthijs van Heijningen Jr.). So many things should actually be removed from "Other works" nowadays, if they are doubled in filmographies. People might argue that not much would left then, but it's not true: literature, music, radio, theatre, audio books, local television, podcasts, virtually tons of stuff would fit there nicely. 

I thoroguhly agree that chronological order would have been a nice addition to see, though.

Edit: it's odd by the way: I was submitting a commercial directed by Rob Zombie as a new titles mere minutes before I stumbled upon this thread.

Hi Eboy -

Unfortunately, we still don't support ordering within the Other Works section and don't have current plans to do so.  I agree that having this option would be a beneficial display and I have forwarded this suggestion to the applicable team for visibility and future consideration.  Cheers!

One more thing. I recently added 10+ separate entries for certain actor in the ”Other Works” section (mainly stage/theatre work). I submitted them ”all at once” in chronological year order, but they’re still not listed as such on the actual page.
