Top 10 Things TheTopTens Should Have


The Top Ten

1 A Chatroom

Yeah 4 sho, I have like about 6 BFF's on here, we could all chat together it'll be awesome, it could get more Members, the REAL owner should think about this - SmoothCriminal

That would be kind of cool. I could talk to lots of users at once. But then again, it would sort of turn TheTopTens into a social media site. I guess everything has its ups and downs. - RockFashionista

ok that would be so awesome! then this site would be even more awesome than it is now. I Wanna Chat With SmoothCriminal - fireinside96

I wish! I want to be able to talk to multiple users, and I’m not able to PM.

2 A TheTopTens App

Now this would be fantastic. Especially if it covered everything else on this list, like notifications, chat rooms... Its was so difficult to pick! But id love and app, so much! - keycha1n

This would make it so much easier to make actual top ten lists. WHY ARE YOU NOT WORKING ON THIS? - cbrann10

This would stop the lag problems on some mobile devices!

Yes please - TealBoyxx

3 A Notification System

This should've been made long ago. Notifications when you're lists have been voted, when someone comments on your post, when your comment is thumbed up or down, when you score a new achievement. - SteveKing

This would be nice to see how popular you are. - dureckl

So and so commeted on your list etc. - moose4life19

I thought there is one. - 50

4 Ability to Design Our Own Pages

This is actually a really good idea. I'd have so much fun with this. Please, the forces that be, make this possible. - Britgirl

This is a great idea! And it's a good way to show off our creativity and what we like. - cosmo

This would be really cool.

5 A Point System

#1 could have 10 points, #2 could have 9 points, etc. and whenever someone votes on that item, it could get a point. - booklover1

it would be great 'cause you could give your vote to multiple items! - rock2metal

And even people who aren't signed in can earn points! Hey, we can't do anything on here without signing in!

6 A Vote Down Button

What I mean by this is a button next to the vote button that can give the item a vote down, making it drop it's ranks. This can be a way to show a dislike in an item instead of rude comments. - Frantic713

Exactly! You could actually do something about seeing something that shouldn't be on the list! - Minecraftcrazy530

Best idea. On a completely unrelated note, I just accidentally pasted a really bad song I wrote onto this comment. - lovefrombadlands

8 A Way to Search for Users

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

Why does this not exist - Randomator

10 Instant List-Approving System

I'm tired of my lists being approved late. - dragon13304

I make a list then suddenly it shows up. that would be heaven - 2234

And then you'd want the list to get deleted. It's up to admin which lists are allowed so we won't get more complaints!

Same goes for posts - MChkflaguard_Yt

The Newcomers

? Edit Comments Directly on the List

This was possible not so long ago. Where did this go and why? Now you have to go to your page and edit the comment there. Have fun discovering a comment with a spelling mistake that's a few months or even years old. - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 Uploading Pictures in Messages

That would be really awesome. You actually can do that. You just have to copy and paste and yada yada yada. - RockFashionista

Yea just turn the messaging system into texting on an iPhone, that would be awesome - GrapeJuiceK

You can do that now. - SteveKing

There are no good pictures only, they could just import it from Google hehe

13 Option In the Account Settings That Changes the Number of Shown Items on Lists
14 Ability to Delete Your Own Lists

I've been wanting to delete my list of Top 10 Things to Tell Sword Art Online Haters for quite a while now. It's the worst list I ever made and I hugely regret making it in the first place. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

You guys may think some my lists are classic to the site like Characters That Hate Dora the Most but there's one that sucks so much it almost made me almost made me leave but the website is too good - Jake09

I want to delete my stupid list"Top Ten Reasons Why 2016 Was A Terrible Year For Music" because of the many negative comments and disagreements. Also, I did not like the options of that list. - AnimeDrawer

15 Comment Without Voting

I hate whenever all the items suck and I just want to comment with how much those items and the entire list suck as a whole! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Oh my gosh, YES! Especially on those creepy lists about sex and body parts. - Minecraftcrazy530

Now, when I add a non-votable subjective list I can't even give justifications and other people can't comment what they think about it. - Martin_Canine

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

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

17 Not Allowing Anonymous Voters to Comment

No this is good why they have this so you could comment even if you don't have an account - PatrickStar

No way, it adds a sense of inclusion on this site. - naFrovivuS

That is just unfair - CerealGuy

That would not be a good idea, because then the site would get less popular because of this.
Not a good idea.

18 The Ability to Change Username

I'm tired of having Jake09 as my username - Jake09

This would be great, but I want my name to be consistent and become sort of a classic - EliHbk

I hate dubstep now. - DubstepLover

I hate that this isn't a thing - Randomator

19 Better Searching

I can agree with this one on the grounds of some of my own lists. I made a few lists and tried searching for them and couldn't find them via search feature, which I use to find certain lists. I had to always go to my own profile to see those particular lists. With the auto-complete AND the search function not working the way I expected, I could never view them unless I went to my profile, and that's sad. - NuMetalManiak

20 An Option in the Account Settings That Makes Select/Certain Messages Not Be Received on the Device
21 Background Profile Decorations
22 The Ability to Reply On a Comment

It would be nice if you had the choice to reply to comments that appear on members' profile page instead of on the list the comment was made. - Britgirl

The ability to reply a comment that has been replied to a comment

Guests can't reply

23 Polls

This would be cool. I mean you can do a poll as a post, but this would be so much more convienent. - Metal2003

24 A More Interesting Blog System

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

25 Better Site Design

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!

I got used to it - SteveKing

26 A Forum

The Forum was retired because nobody used it many years ago. That was before the site started getting really popular and now users had to use a wikia just to use the forums, which eventually got deleted and now we have nothing do do on this site. Admin should bring it back for the newer users who joined in the past couple years.

People would LOVE to talk on forums and discuss random stuff, and there would be a page for new people :).

I had spent a lot of time on a different forum before creating an account here. So I'd love to see this. - NuMetalManiak

Used to have forum but they remove it since users rarely use it - CerealGuy

27 An Option to Hide #1

Don't you think it's peculiar and stupid to not be able to see what's Number 1?

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

For that DRAMATIC AFFECT - GrapeJuiceK

28 Report or Send A Ban Request

Well, we do have this, but it is only for factual errors, not for inappropriate or racist things.

We already have this?

29 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?!

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. - AnimeDrawer

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

30 Amount of Votes Received Shown

Better. Percentages are not clear enough. - MChkflaguard_Yt

31 Make the top 10 start at number 10

Actually that would be a good idea keep the reader interested. - htoutlaws2012

Instead of going grow 1-10 down the page it should be 10-1 then honorable mentions - Randomator

This is a good idea, actually - Martinglez

THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN - adfairhurst

32 More Admins

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

It's like a tyranny so we need more admins to keep the balance - Neonco31

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

33 More Features When You Follow Someone
34 User Moderators
35 Add More Featured Lists On the Home Page
36 Group Chat

Yes please - Randomator

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

37 If They Would Blank Out the Curse Words Like This: F***

I've been raised not saying anything worse than "crap," so I am not comfortable with cuss words (I don't care how many times you tell me to get over It), but I also often don't understand what people are saying. This would be great help. - CatCode

This would be great, because it would allow me to cuss on here and not have my comments deleted; only censored so younger folks don't have to deal with it. - Turkeyasylum

They allow this on posts but not on comments or replies. - LightningBlade

39 Faster Approving
40 The Ability to Report Users That Break the Rules

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.

Someone called Danteem is a reason this is a bad idea. - Skullkid755

I tought they send the TopTenner message to do that. - Finn-Mordecai-Gumball

41 Custom Profile Picture

We already have that now... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

42 Levels Do Something
43 Don't Make the List Creator Make All Ten Entries

What is this the top 8? Heck no. It is the top tens so the lists should have ten items. - Metal2003

Some lists cannot have ten items. Suppose Megadeth made an album of just 7 songs. How do you expect 10 songs on your album list? - LightningBlade

44 Unlimited dishonorable mentions in remixes

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.

Yes - Randomator

NO - Neonco31

45 A Better Background
46 Notification When Someone Comments On Your List

This should be a great addition. - LightningBlade
