Top 10 Things TheTopTens Should Have


The Top Ten

1 A Chatroom

The main problems: Flame wars and inappropriate messages that will make the job of the admin harder. Maybe consider these problems first since we only have 1 or few admins moderating the site. - Leafeon

That would be cool, but more flame wars could happen...
I'll just stay out of it, then. - Misfire

That sounds cool! - MorlaTurtle8

Sounds good - ElSherlock

2 A TheTopTens App

That'd be cool, although I'm really fine with HTML5 - BorisRule

We need an app. - MarioMaster101

I use a mobile phone for browsing on thetoptens, and I'm doing pretty fine.

An app would help spread it around, so would social media.

3 A Notification System

It already exists - ElSherlock

No notifications are annoying - BananaBrain

I need a notification feature, which can detect the filthy creatures as soon as they enter my profile page or before they start polluting my inbox. - Vip3r

Already exists - Randomator

4 Ability to Design Our Own Pages

I would love to have a background picture for my profile or something like that. - RogerMcBaloney

Kudos for this idea! - BorisRule

This would be cool. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Yeah come on why do all our profiles have to look so similar? - Randomator

5 The Ability to Change Username

Under a few conditions like a limit of changing it and others should know what you username was before. - Userguy44

Not a bad idea, but there should be limits. Users should have to wait 30 days after their last username change before they can change their username again. - shadomatrix

This was already about 4 times. - MorlaTurtle8

That would be good for those who want to change their names - ElSherlock

6 Comment Without Voting

This needs to happen - Randomator

Everyone needs this! - Misfire

Exactly! A lot of the times I want to comment on something but then I realize that I vote for something that I don't want to vote for.

One time, I saw something that was number one on its list, which I thought was ridiculous, so I tried to comment for that thing and I realized I voted for something I didn't want to be number one. - MaxAurelius

Yes - ElSherlock

7 A Vote Down Button

We had this before - BorisRule

We are not going to like EVERYTHING admin.

What was the intent of removing the down vote button on comments - aqua84

It used to be a thumbs down button but it got removed - ElSherlock

8 A Point System

A point system for what? Lists? Users? We already have member scores and lists get scores based on number of votes and remixes - Randomator

A Point system for what?
Whenever someone creates a garbage or an attention-seeking list, they should either be disapproved immediately or 10 points must be deducted from the creator's overall score. - Vip3r

Fort what? - ElSherlock

For what?! - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

9 A Friend Adding System Similar to Facebook

You can follow users which is pretty much the same thing - Randomator

That's quite close to the following options. - Misfire

That'd be cool - BananaBrain

Well we have following options - MrQuaz680

10 A Way to Search for Users

It exists now - ElSherlock

It exists. - Misfire

You would have to get an account in order to conveniently search up users. If you're a visitor, you would just have to find a list created by them in order to search them up. It would really be nice if visitors could be able to search for users with something like a user search bar as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Well, it's a long time since this came around, but apparently, now you can search for users just by typing in "U: (insert username)" into the search bar. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


The Contenders

11 Instant List-Approving System

Low-quality lists are already abundant on this site. They have successfully scared off most people from ever joining this site and have caused them to think that this site is an "autism hellhole". Plus, why do lists related to movies and television always have to be dominated by animated movies and shows? It makes people think that this site is filled with nothing but children.

Terrible idea. We already have a bunch of low quality lists on the site, so why do we need more? - shadomatrix

No, then low-quality uncreative lists and spam may flood the site. - aqua84

Bad idea. What if the list is really offensive or somethin'? - Misfire

12 A "Last Online" Feature

Yeah, I like this idea - sadical

Pretty funny idea. - Userguy44

That could separate the long gone users from the current users. - MrCoolC

For example X user was last online at 6:30 on 2-17-19 or something like that - Randomator

13 An Option to Change the Title of Your Lists On Your Own

Why does this not exist? - Randomator

But, admin should still decide whether to approve the changes or not. - Misfire

I called my list Best Things About 2018 Music. I should have worded that better.

14 The Allowing of Profanity

Thank GOD this isn't any higher! Profanity should NOT be allowed on this site! - Vancedapurpleguy

Don't. Profanity can be abused a lot. I don't want this site to become like Facebook!

Why do you care so much about profanity? The fact that this site is a relatively clean one makes me feel safer and happier. I use this site as an anxiety and depression coping mechanism. Allowing profanity would destroy that for me. - RockFashionista

No, children could visit this site, but I don’t mind the ability to swear via the chat. - MrCoolC

15 A Help Button at the Top

Why though - Randomator


16 Uploading Pictures in Messages

Well you can do that, but I don't know how to do it. - MorlaTurtle8

Can you actually do this? - Randomator

You can do that - ElSherlock

You can do that anyway. - Userguy44

17 Ability to Delete Your Own Lists

You can only delete the self moderate lists made by you - ElSherlock

This would be good because what if somebody made a list they didn't know was offensive but was? - MarioMaster101

How about whenever you make a list that you want to remove, you can message admin to remove it. I tried that before and it worked! - DrayTopTens

I've tried it with my Steven universe hate lists and it didn't work.

We really need this! - MorlaTurtle8

18 1v1 Lists

I don't understand...? - Misfire

What? - Randomator

How would this work... - mistyglow

List:1v1 I rek u
List 2#:U WOT M8 - CerealGuy

19 Option In the Account Settings That Changes the Number of Shown Items on Lists
20 Better Searching

The searching changed now - ElSherlock

The admins definitely need to update the search results. Some lists don't even show up when I try to search them. - shadomatrix

Yeah, the searching system sucks. - Userguy44

Yeah it needs to be improved - Randomator

1 Comment
21 A Feature That Shows How Many Votes Each Item Has

I'm with u, Randomator.

Makes more sense than percentages - Randomator

22 More Features When You Follow Someone

I don't think this is necessary to be honest. - Misfire

Yeah followers are completely pointless. There should be more incentive to following people - Randomator

23 Unlimited dishonorable mentions in remixes

I would like to add more than three dishonorable mentions to my lists. - AliciaMae

Then someone could put everything as a dishonorable mention except their 10 favorite things.

In theory the website would be down because of this. This is because that someone can put over a million items in the DHMS (or a billion) - 50

Seriously, there are lists where I want to vote down at least five items, but I can't because of the limit of DMs into 3.

24 Report or Send A Ban Request

Don't we already have this?! - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

We have this - ElSherlock

What could possibly go wrong - Randomator

One time on the list of greatest religious figures of all time Satan was on that list. And I wanted to report that to the top Tens to get Satan off that list or ban him or censor him or do something!

25 You Can Take Back Your Vote

You could go back to the list and vote for the other item the next day, though. - Misfire

Eh I guess it could be useful - Randomator

Please! - MorlaTurtle8

Yes PLEASE - Pokemonfan10

26 The Ability to Report Users That Break the Rules

This already exists - ElSherlock

Does already exist, but admin doesn't do anything about it. - Userguy44

This had been taken advantage of. There's one user who reported multiple users for "bullying" him while he's the one who's making pornographic blog post series.

Doesn't this already exist - Randomator

27 An Option in the Account Settings That Makes Select/Certain Messages Not Be Received on the Device

What do you mean by this? - mistyglow

28 Add More Featured Lists On the Home Page

Yes - Randomator

29 Better Site Design

I'm already satisfied with the current one. - Misfire

it would be pretty awesome 2 choose your own background... juss like bebo - SmoothCriminal

Or, you can just download an extension to change the theme of the site. Of course, you would have to learn a lot of coding just to get there.

I agree. And for those who don't like when people cuss, get over it. It's not hurting your daily life. This is sad though. It needs to be more colorful or something like you can customize it!

30 Background Profile Decorations
31 Profile Creation Dates

I joined on the day of my birthday, and the day Youtube went down (October 16,2018), so that's easy for me to remember! But, I do see the point here - oneshot

Wouldn’t serve much purpose but would be nice - Randomator

I need this because I always say I joined November 11,but I’m not actually sure.

I kinda made up the day I joined. It’s just the day I made my first post comment, but I know I joined before that. I just don't have an exact day, so it’s close enough! - sadical

32 Ability to Delete Items on Lists

That would be good - ElSherlock

I want to delete items on my lists. Some of them are just lame.

I think I can actually do that - Neonco31

Yes - Randomator

33 Ability to Edit Items After the List is Created
34 A Comment Remover

You can do this - Randomator

35 An Option to Hide #1

Why - Randomator

Why would you not want to see number 1? - AliciaMae

This is odd why would you not want to see #1? - PatrickStar

I guess you might want to guess and see if you're right. - PianoQueen

36 A Better Admin

Htoutlaws2012 for admin! - Randomator

Get htoutlaws2012 for this! - Userguy44

37 The Ability to Reply On a Comment

You can do that already - ElSherlock

Already exists - Randomator

Troll item - DrayTopTens

It doesn't work in some lists though. - Userguy44

38 Not Allowing Anonymous Voters to Comment

This ruins the whole purpose of this site, please think logically before you add an idea to the list. - aqua84

This item is an utter nonsense. It doesn't make any sense if only the registered members are allowed to vote. This site is for everyone. At least, visitors comments reflect honesty. - Vip3r

Anyone can have the right to comment on their opinion if they want to.

No way. Otherwise the popularity of this site goes down. - HoldenFanatic

39 A More Interesting Blog System

Yeah this would be beneficial - Randomator

Like making visitor share their own opinions about the blogs topic.

Like maybe being able to add pictures and videos to blog posts. - cosmo

I do agree since I want to add more atmosphere around my blogs - CerealGuy

40 The Ability to Comment On Something Without Having to Vote for It

Definitely should be here. What if I disagree with something and want to say so?!

Already on the list, but still, this would definitely be AWESOME.

Sometimes I vote something that shouldn't be voted in order to comment what I have to on that item. - SteveKing

Yes! Please! I do not want to vote for items I do not even want to vote for.

1 Comment
41 An Awards Ceremony
42 Amount of Votes Received Shown

Yeah this would make more sense - Randomator

Better. Percentages are not clear enough. - MChkflaguard_Yt

43 Faster Approving
44 More Featured Lists

Yes I’d say 10-20 is a good amount - Randomator

They barely even change the featured list - ToptenPizza

No more garbages in the featured section. The place should be reserved for quality lists, which is seldom created. - Vip3r

45 Editing and Deleting Lists

I would like to delete and edit tons of my old list - CerealGuy

A couple months ago, I made a list on one of my favourite singers, Chester Bennington, and it wasn’t until after I made the list when I heard he went and visited a 14 year old fan with cancer. I wish I could put it higher on the list because it’s pretty significant, but it won’t let me. - 3DG20

Please make this admin - RockStarr

46 A "Remove" Tool

Remove every list on Justin Bieber, him on a list, the name of the fandom Belibers

Yes! - MorlaTurtle8

Under a few conditions - Randomator

Only on your own items and lists. I hate seeing silly, unrelated items on lists. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

47 Make the top 10 start at number 10

There is an option for that. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

You can do this in the settings of ya profile - Kambochia12

You can do this - TeamRocket747

I think I saw this in the "preferences" thing on my profile. - Cyri

48 Comment Addition Dates

Eh, that would be hard to do for the admin. If this was implemented, newer comments would get dates, but older comments wouldn't. It wouldn't really look good to be honest. - Misfire

This would be smart - Randomator

This comment is made on January 6th of 2019. - MrCoolC

That would be really good so people stop bringing up my trash comments from my least favorite month! I could also see the actual day I joined because November 11th is just the day I made my first post comment, which I deleted!

1 Comment
49 Group Chat

That would be excellent so I can talk to all of my friends on TheTopTens at once and we could have a friendly conversation about things! Yay!

Yes please - Randomator

Yepyep, this is needed. Execute if disagree. - Puga

50 More Admins

That would either be a good or bad thing - Randomator

We have at least five admins using the same account. It's more appropriate to say "more independent administrator accounts" since we're being brainwashed with this "anti-administrator dictatorship" propaganda since last year.

The admin is pretty much our dictator. We need more admins to help balance the power. - NicholasYellow

They are all using the same account, enough said - MChkflaguard_Yt
