It seems that the movies are not loading in order. When I look at the URL, I see the "on deck" movie and the "next" movie. The on deck is the current one, right (not like in baseball)? And the next one should be what loads next... right? Well, that is not happening for me at all.

Am I alone in this? Or am I misunderstanding the way it works?

I also had an issue with a CM I wanted to post about... I went to double check the URL and when I copy-pasted the movie ID, it gave me a different movie all together. I did make sure I didn't leave out a digit too. Here is an example:

Yet if you go to this movie you can see they are not the same.


I am using Firefox if that helps any. Thanks!

P.S. - Sorry if this is confusing...

Hi, Titanium

May be the problem is, that the movie you wanted to copy-paste, was a Calibration movie. In phase I this kind of movies didn't have a fixed number. The Real Movies have fixed numbers.

Ah okay. That answers my second question. Thank you.

The URL shows the last link you clicked on, so it was the link from the "no track" button, or the other things you can click on, from the last movie, not the one you're looking at now. If you look at the links on the current movie, then it makes sense.
