Personal List Created When Adding New List to Site

May 7, 2013

We received a question about why when a member adds a new list to the site, we also create a personal list for them with the same items in the same order. We do this for a number of reasons.

First, we have received multiple complaints from people who after adding a top ten list, find out that their original ordering has changed. Granted, this is the nature of the site, but people still sometimes get upset. Having a personal version of your list gives you a copy of your original that will be unaffected by the popular vote.

Second, people have expressed a desire to reorder their lists after they have been submitted and approved. We don't do this because doing so would run counter to the public opinion methodology of ranking items on the site. Instead, with a personal list, you can go back and edit the list at any time in case your tastes change or you discover something new. Plus, since we are now incorporating personal lists into the ranking system, when you reorder your existing list, your new reordering will have an effect on the main list.

So, given how many people want complete control of their lists on the site and the fact that there is no real downside, we figured the best option was to automatically create a personal copy of all new lists added by members so they didn't have to do it manually.
