Top Ten Suggestions to Improve TheTopTens

If you have any thoughts about ways to improve this site your input would be most welcome. As good as it is, it feels incomplete.

The Top Ten

1 Have an awards system for members who exceed in certain areas.

I succeed at being unsuccessful. Give me the paradox award. - Ashes

Or not exceed, like I could win least awards nominated.

I do think this should I don't think #2 should happen and I think #1 should happen - toy

Maybe I'll get an award for the most useless user! Hahaa... *sniff* - Not_A_Weeaboo

2 Stop approving pointless lists.

Pointless lists specifically "starting with ___", letter lists; more innovation is greatly appreciated when considering making lists. - illusion

Top Ten Users of TheTopTens starting with G in February 2019 who Make Pointless Lists.

Edit: I didn't think of any particular user. - Alkadikce

Top ten best TheTopTens lists with the letter x in the title.

Yes. - Userguy44

3 Allow members who have shown to be on the side of the ethics of the site to help manage/moderate things.

You mean those who might have experience of comfort to others I see. - htoutlaws2012

This would help to speed up the process of cleaning up bad comments/suggestions and helping to make the site flow more smoothly. - wizardryuk

4 Remove/join two seperate lists that are for essentially the same thing.

Would it be crazy to mash both lists, and be able to have them both seen on the same screen? That seems impossible, but that might be asking for too complicated of a suggestion. - htoutlaws2012

Yes. 'Worst Popular anime' & 'most overrated anime' are basically the same - styLIShT

I see too many lists that have more than one list for the same cause. - wizardryuk

Yeah, like Top ten movies, best films, Greatest movies etc - SoldierOfFortune

5 A Chatroom

Yeah then I would bully everyone who hates Justin Bieber on here.

Cyberbullying included? - Userguy44

I'd be a societal reject here too, yay! (Hides behind my Wings of Fire book and cries in the corner) - Ashes

Yes! - Userguy44

6 Random List button

This would be necessary; it's getting harder to find undiscovered thoughtful lists and this suggestion would solve this problem. - illusion

I never thought of this, but it's actually an excellent idea. Then the lists nobody bothers to search for could be seen by people. - MaxAurelius

I have now suggested this to Admin. They said there is not Immediate plans for this, but it could become a feature sometime in the future. Does anyone know if that's really going to happen? - SpectralOwl

Then more lists could get attention - Randomator

7 A Forum

The forums were inactive in the past few years it was released since. It's safe to say the forums would be active if this was implemented again. - illusion

If I have to recall, a forum did exist back in the day, but was closed due to inactivity. If it was opened now, there would be tons of activity on there - styLIShT

Absolutely! Back in the day they used to have this, but was taken down by the time I did comeback in 2014. - htoutlaws2012

The forum was removed way before most users on the site joined because nobody would use it. If the forum still existed today, it would probably be used more because there are more users now and they would all like to use it a lot.

8 Improve the search system.

They also didn't have to take a search system if I wanted to look at all 3,000 of my lists. - htoutlaws2012

How? This isn't very specific at all. - gemcloben

This was improved recently. - zxm

This needs to be improved asap and is my #1 as of Sept 2017. Sometimes I enter the accurate and entire titles of my own lists and they don't show. Also, very often I work a lot on a list and submit it just to learn it was a duplicate. But I didn't see the original list existed because it didn't show on the 'has your list been submitted' box.
Example - results for keywords "AC/DC songs" (as of Sept 9, 2017):
1. Best Songs On AC/DCs For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)
2. Best Songs from Meek Mill's DC4
3. Top Ten Best Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP Songs
4. Best Songs of All Time
5. Most Romantic Hindi Songs
6. Most Emotional Bollywood Songs - Metal_Treasure

9 Create a TheTopTens app

Not ideal, the site functions as normally to most mobile devices compared to PC. - illusion

It Could help promote the site - Randomator

I don't really think it's a good idea. I'm sorry. - MaxAurelius

So you can get notifications when you get comments on your post or list!

10 Add More Things to the Profile Editor

More personalization on user accounts. - illusion

Favorite books, cars, website, drinks, etc. - MrCoolC

Favorite books. - Ashes

Like make personal lists (My Top Ten Favorite...) or let you change it after register. - mattlol

The Newcomers

? Ability to unlike a comment that you accidentally liked

The Contenders

11 An option to remove lists

Please. - Ashes

I don't think it's going to happen as the admins are pretty clear about the fact that no lists would be deleted. Also, we just have to accept that whatever we post, it's gonna stay on the internet forever - styLIShT

Yes. This needs to happen. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

The only way this would work is if there’s a time limit before it’s up permanently. Maybe a month at maximum - Randomator

12 Let us delete our comments or edit them

Looking back at my old comments, I'm sometimes tempted to give myself a thumbs down. - djh101

We can already do this. - cosmo

Nowadays, we already are able to do this. - EpicJake

This item isn't relevant anymore - when I joined in the end of 2014, this option was already available. - Metal_Treasure

V 3 Comments
13 Let us delete personal lists

I have a remix for Best Songs From Linkin Park's A Thousand Suns that I never created and, because I don't like any songs on that album, it would be nice if I could delete the list. - djh101

Yeah bias lists only is what people look to undo. - htoutlaws2012

14 Quicker approval time

Quicker approval time would mean a broader moderation team as there are only a few active moderators currently managing the site. - illusion

It should take maybe a few hours to upload images not a week - Randomator

Yes... - Camaro6

Quicker activity time as well. - htoutlaws2012

15 A TheTopTens Wikipedia Page

Imagine having biographies of users such as Alexandr, Positron, Evil Angel etc. A Historians guide for new gen users to pioneer, and inspire by there accolades of why they are that phenomenal, and what they led by style. - htoutlaws2012

16 Add a vote down button

Why was this removed again? - KalloFox34

I could see this being an issue - Randomator

Devote can be both a good and a bad thing depending on the maturity level of both the community, and the visitor. - htoutlaws2012

This item is so outdated. If I correctly remember, the vote down button was already available in 2014 when I joined. But maybe it existed before that. - Metal_Treasure

17 Not to allow items to be voted for more than once by the same user.
18 Be able to add comments on remixes

More features such as comments on remixes; good feature in order for other users to freely express their opinions on various user-made remixes. - illusion

It would be cool if you could comment on someone's remix for discussion on if they disagree or not - Phillip873

Yep... which is why we need more users to make ''remixes great again! '' - htoutlaws2012

19 Have a side section to each vote for people to be able to argue why they disagree with said vote

Meaning a reply I'm taking it? - htoutlaws2012

It would be a section that could house as many comments as necessary but these comments would not be visible on the same page. I feel that it would allow people to be able to judge better why something is where it is placed. - wizardryuk

yeah some people just blindly vote and have no clue what they're talking about

20 A better Search bar

The search system is occasionally improving on the site, as it is seen recently. - illusion

They already made it so it would show you more results you know - 445956

21 Let users delete lists

You can already do that. - KalloFox34

22 Have a section for all things anime

A section for me to avoid.

Ugh... that's almost unavoidable actually. - htoutlaws2012

23 When making a list that has already been made, the maker can be informed before submitting the list if the list already exists if it doesn't show on the 'has your list been submitted' box

Well as long as they go to the person, and have a mutual agreement no harm no foul. - htoutlaws2012

24 Allow users to express their opinions about users they don't like

I makes me sad that the dislike buttons where removed. Admin should get rid of his policy rn. - Userguy44

25 Remove underage children from sexual lists

This definitely needs to happen it is really sad these keep getting added.

I've tried multiple times to have a 15 year old girl named JoJo Siwa removed from "best butts" and "celebrities you want to see naked" lists. Unsurprisingly, this site does nothing. - floral

This probably sounds wrong to some people, but at fifteen years of age I don't think anybody cares. - MaxAurelius

26 Take votes that can be categorized together and join them with the accumulative votes.

You mean what the standard use to be when you're vote would count, and something would actually move up. - htoutlaws2012

I sometimes see in a list that the same thing can be mentioned more than once and if they were combined, they would probably be higher in the list. Maybe even no. 1. - wizardryuk

27 Add a way to search/organize our personal lists.

That would be great. - Metal_Treasure

Whether that alphabetically then as well... a way of learning the alphabet in a complicated way. - htoutlaws2012

28 Ban fetish lists
29 Admin sends a TopTenner a message at the end of the week telling us how we did during the week

Since the site is run by human moderators; though the site has currently few active members, it is impossible, unless an automated bot can be established to do the job - illusion

That would be cool! Of course I would have probably quit in December 2017 because admin would probably rate me 0/10.

Yeah this would appear, but maybe after 1,000 though that kinda stopped for me, and I had to track everything down myself. - htoutlaws2012

You do realize that this is almost impossible, right? As of Sept 2017 the site has 167,390 members. Most of them aren't active but still. - Metal_Treasure

30 Allow comments on non-votable lists

Minor feature; decent addition specifically for dedicated list makers. - illusion

Non-votable lists can be very useful in some cases and I would use them more often if I had the option "Allow comments" - Yes/No. Currently people can't vote and can't comment on these lists but some authors may want to allow comments. The authors should have this option and decide whether to allow comments or not. - Metal_Treasure

But these lists are actually made to don’t allow comments? - Userguy44

Yeah such as a different person view... if worst a reply is fine as well. - htoutlaws2012

31 Make all non HQ posts visible somewhere

Sorting HQ and non-HQ posts should be a good idea to consider, rather than leaving non-HQ left out at the dark. - illusion

How about some stats that involved high quality posts, or even what is the longest written would be interesting. - htoutlaws2012

32 Place the "Search List" option at the top of the page

Or keep the Search List for users like myself if they wanted to revisit old, and forgotten lists that are hard to remember overtime. - htoutlaws2012

I added this item because currently the "Search List" option is at the bottom of the page. It would work much better at the top.
1) When we add items to long lists (often our own lists) we have to go through the "Search List" Option in order to add every item. With the "Search List" Option at the bottom it's very annoying - too much unnecessary scrolling.
2) When we vote on a long list we have to scroll down again to find the item we wanna vote for via the "Search List" option. Maybe I don't wanna see all 20 items on the 1st page because I wanna vote for an item that's at #223 and I will find it by using the "Search List" option. But again, the "Search List" option should be at the top of the page to avoid the unnecessary scrolling. - Metal_Treasure

33 Make it possible to change usernames

Username changing would be a useful feature for once a lifetime; annually is preferable. Whilst the main downside sacrifices recognition by other visitors/users. Another addition enables users to show previous usernames; certain users would find this embarassing due to registering with an unfitting username in the first place, thus toggling previous usernames should be ideal to consider. - illusion

This should happen before 2020. Let me name myself something cool. - Userguy44

Okay idea. - illusion

It would only work under certain conditions - Randomator

34 TheTopTens merchandise

Sounds like a cool idea, but how will it work? - Userguy44

Imagine any of us users being marketable, could we end getting some sort of exposure one day? - htoutlaws2012

Boygenius234's ban biberhaters stickers - BoyGenius234

DCFnaf wario body pillows! Anti modern spongebob propaganda posters! Positron Wildhawk rainbow profile pic bumper stickers!

Only $999.99! - Not_A_Weeaboo

35 Show how many people have voted in total for each list.

I think that this would give a better idea to users as to how accurate the list may be. Maybe some sort of system can be devised to give an accuracy rating percentage for each list instead based on such things? - wizardryuk

Ugh... well there is looking at the creators data analysis if that counts. - htoutlaws2012

We do this anyway. I like this feature as it indicates the reliability of a list, - gemcloben

It could be like YouTube, showing how many views of the video, only this time it is showing how many votes are on a list. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

36 Improve the relevance of the "Related Lists"

"related lists" are sometimes entirely off the subject of the current list on; more relevancy and accuracy on related lists would be more than ideal. - illusion

Considered its all out of wack choices that are more less suggestion to check out. - htoutlaws2012

37 Monitor comments

''We're watching you! '' - htoutlaws2012

38 Let us delete items that we don't want to be on our personal lists

Similar item forevermore... appears to nevermore solutions. - htoutlaws2012

39 Visitors aren't allowed to vote

Establishing this concept means taking the wrong path to running this site; very unlikely that could happen. - illusion

Just make an account and you can vote! - Userguy44

I remember when visitors could comment more than once on lists. It was in 2015. I remember it.

It ruins the point of the website then to not have the visitor vote is like saying you are losing the addicted consumer. - htoutlaws2012

40 Be more vigilant about upholding the beliefs of the site Examples: making it a PG site (too much pornographics/sexual content).

You say this in your FAQ "
What are some reasons why my item would be rejected?
... Items may also be rejected if they do not logically belong in a list. We aren't going to approve a Ford Pinto submission for a coolest sports car list.
but I see Chuck Norris as number 61 in greatest guitarists ever. ETC... - wizardryuk

Lower down the vulgar tone of course, but why in the lords name would you wanna be a sexual predator this isn't Myspace. - htoutlaws2012

41 You can vote for multiple items on the same list

Why would you want to do that? - 445956

42 Improve the all list section by not repeating the lists in each page.

I find that when I click the "All Lists" that the fist page is fine, then if I click on page 2, I get page 1 and 2, if I click on 55 then the list is huge and repeats what is in other lists. What is going on? - wizardryuk

43 Let us use the photos we want for our lists
44 Spell Check

Well seeing there are times that a title is not corrected... then that ends up falling on the user for not noticing... therefore proves my point of nobody being perfect nobody how much you want to believe that. - htoutlaws2012

45 Remove lists that can cause hate

Yes just downright hateful ones I can see undoing. - htoutlaws2012

It's up to the person to start hating.

46 Disapprove hate lists

Because of idiots who can't stand opinions? No way.

Meaning be negative of the targeted list as you please I say. - htoutlaws2012

Depends On How Offensive And Extreme It Is - JPK

47 Being able to re-edit our list descriptions

We can finally do that, now if could edit the Tittles of our lists so people fan find or appear more In the reocomended lists that would be nice - Sa26

48 Have more top level categories for lists (and/or even sub-categories)

I feel like there can be more of these then what is given... its not perfect, but its good that could use some new additions. - htoutlaws2012

49 Being allowed to choose your own category on the lists you make
50 Erase all negative comments from all anime lists made by anime haters

Here’s a better idea. Ban anime fanboys/fangirls from putting items on a list. - 3DG20

Heard of opinions? - Not_A_Weeaboo

They needs to happen if your not an anime fan you shouldn't even be on there. - ZZDOORAL

Oh? So the easily offended idiots added this item, eh? - gemcloben
