A few glitches when it comes to lists
I've encountered two frustrating glitches when it comes to lists. First, with lists of a certain size (~2,500 films or more) I cannot edit them on the desktop browser without the website subsequently deleting every film on the list past ~2,500 (I can't remember the exact number). This problem does not occur when I edit lists on mobile. Secondly, I've found that for these huge lists, it also likes to skip a number. For my ranked list, which has 5,151 films on it, the list will skip 2,920, going straight from 2,919 to 2921. As a result of this, the list only has 5,151 films on it but the ranked number on the final film is actually 5,152. The number is not skipped when I attempt to edit the list on mobile, but nothing I do fixes the problem. On the side of list, as well, rather than saying just "You've watched 721 of 5151," it says "You've watched 721 of 5151 / 5152." I know this is a minot grievance but I just want to put it out there.
The list editing limit on the web is about 3,300 we believe. We’re looking to adopt the same approach as in our app, but it’s not ready yet.
The missing list items is probably due to a film in the list having been deleted from the site (we routinely remove entries that TMDb removes for not being films). Adding and removing a film from said list should fix it, but obviously that’s not possible if you strike the first issue. Noted.
Could I do it on mobile? I think the problem I'm running into is that once the film is deleted from TMDb, it still has a spot on the list but I don't have anyway to remove it cause it's gone.
