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

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

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

Yes! You have to approve it. - subhashsahu

2 Stop approving pointless lists.

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

"Best songs by ___ and ___, " "Best songs that have Crawl in the name, " "Best Linkin Park song with "The" in the title. " These lists are only created in an attempt to earn badges and serve no purpose, whatsoever. - djh101

Well, sometimes we are bored and want to make a funny list but sometimes that is true - oneshot

Best Linkin Park Song With "The" In the Title. Really... ? - djh101

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

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

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

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

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.

that would be pretty sweet :), because I LEFT thetoptens for awhile COS of A CHATROOM... google "Chatroom 24/7" and click on the first one, and make a nickname for yourself, and IF we are on at the same time, chat with me ;) - alexanderalbert

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

A chatroom would be so fun. This should be added to the top tens. - cosmo

6 A Forum

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.

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

Then I could make a Cilan fan thread! - RiverClanRocks

7 Improve the search system.

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

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

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

8 Random List button

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

This could help give attention to Completely invisible lists... Like mine - SpectralOwl

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

Then more lists could get attention - Randomator

9 Create a TheTopTens app

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

It Could help promote the site - Randomator

I would download it in a heartbeat if it was announced. - htoutlaws2012

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

10 Add More Things to the Profile Editor

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

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

Favorite books. - Ashes

The Contenders

11 An option to remove lists

Yes. This needs to happen. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

No. Don't let butthurt idiots give way to removing lists.

Please. - Ashes

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

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 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

15 Not to allow items to be voted for more than once by the same user.
16 Quicker approval time

Not only for lists but also for images. I often forget about my uploaded images because it takes almost 10 days to approve images. - zxm

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

Quicker activity time as well. - htoutlaws2012

17 Be able to add comments on remixes

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

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

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

Meaning a reply I'm taking it? - htoutlaws2012

19 Let users delete lists

You can already do that. - KalloFox34

20 Have a section for all things anime

A section for me to avoid.

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

21 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

22 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

23 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

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

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

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

25 Add a vote down button

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

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

I could see this being an issue - Randomator

Why was this removed again? - KalloFox34

26 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

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

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

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

Yes! What a great idea. I would like to know if I did a good job or not. - cosmo

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

29 Allow comments on non-votable lists

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

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

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

30 Make all non HQ posts visible somewhere

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

31 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

32 TheTopTens merchandise

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

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

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

33 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

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

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

34 Improve the relevance of the "Related Lists"

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

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

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

36 Visitors aren't allowed to vote

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

Just make an account and you can vote! - Userguy44

Wow, I never thought I would agree with Selfiefan but I really want this to happen - 445956

37 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

38 Make it possible to change usernames

That would be cool, but the previously used names should still be visible on the user's profile (kinda like how Steam does it). - RogerMcBaloney

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

It would only work under certain conditions - Randomator

39 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

40 Let us use the photos we want for our lists
41 The ability to change list titles
42 A user leaderboard to know who has the most lists, comments, highest level, etc.
43 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

44 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.

45 Disapprove hate lists

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

Depends On How Offensive And Extreme It Is - JPK

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

46 A better Search bar

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

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 Giving users more abilities on the website when they level up
50 Erase all negative comments from all anime lists made by anime haters

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

They Have Opinions.

Heard of opinions? - Not_A_Weeaboo
