Top Ten Things You May Not Have Known You Can Do On TheTopTens

On the surface, TheTopTens is a fairly straight forward voting site. But once you create an account and really dig into it, you may find there is a lot more you can do.

The Top Ten

1 Turn off third-party advertising

How? - MarioMaster101

I actually did know about this and actually allowed third-party advertising for a time. However, in recent times the ads started slowing down my browser so I turned it off now. - NuMetalManiak

Looking to speed up your browsing or simply don't like seeing banner advertising on TheTopTens? Go to your profile page, go to the manage account section, and remove the check next to Allow third-party advertising. - admin

I surprise they even let you do this I though that's a way how to get money on websites - AND_IM_GONE_tK

I know how to do that but I found out about 3 months ago. - cosmo

Didn't know how to do this until a couple months ago... - Turkeyasylum

Yeah and I disable my comments because I don't want to deal with anyone giving out negative comments.

How do you make posts? (I'm kinda new so I wouldn't know) - AlphaQ

5 Block senders

In my opinion, instead of having the current policy, why not have a new policy where whenever two users are fighting really badly the can no longer comment on the post they're arguing and they have to block each other from sending messages. - Therandom

Is there another user you're not interested in receiving message from any more? Someone who keeps bugging you to follow them or vote on their lists? You can block them from sending you messages and if you decide to reverse your decision in the future, you can just as easily unblock them. - admin

Before I even knew this list existed, I knew how to block a sender. - GrapeJuiceK

Might just well block cosmo… he hates me anyway… =/ =(


6 Edit your remixes

I find it very useful. I do this all the time especially on my lists. When I have a new item better than some old one, I immediately include the new one in my remix. Or, sometimes I see that more popular items get too overrated and I edit my remix to give a chance to less popular but better items. - Metal_Treasure

Times change, tastes change. If you discovered a new song or artist, you can go back and revise your remixes. If a new game was released, you can update your remix to include it. - admin

Exactly admin, times change, tastes change, I use this quite often - MatrixGuy

It is a good idea to edit. You should choose wisely, folks! - EpicJake

7 Receive message notifications by email

Didn’t know this at all - AwesomeJawson

Don't worry about logging into TheTopTens throughout the day just to check on your messages. You can have message notifications sent to you directly via e-mail so you know if you have new messages and who sent them to you. - admin

8 Open multiple messaging windows at the same time

You don't have to keep going back to the messages page to bounce between different conversations. You can use the pop-out link at the bottom of the messages (depending on device size) to move your conversations to a separate windows so you can have multiple conversations active at the same time. - admin

9 Save list drafts

Have an idea for a list but haven't completely fleshed it out? Can only think of a few items but want to keep working on it? When adding a list, we'll automatically save a draft of your list that you can keep returning to until you are ready to submit it for inclusion on the site. Plus, because your draft is saved on our servers, you can start your list on one device and continue editing on any other device with a modern browser. - admin

I've got quite literally 30+ drafts for lists and a couple blogs too. Thank goodness, its very useful for storing my ideas and sorting out my thoughts. - keycha1n

I mean, I sometimes get bomb-ass ideas for lists in the middle of the night and I just quickly open TTT and put the titke in add list and save draft. It's a very useful feature - styLIShT

This and the draft feature for for blogs have made using the site a lot easier and more enjoyable. - PetSounds

The Contenders

11 Choose who can send you messages

Explains why ModernSpongBobSucks doesn't send me any PMs. I've been wanting to have a chat with the guy. - AlphaQ

I had no idea before! Just go to manage account and at the bottom are three options
1. Anyone can send you messages
2. Only people you follow can send you messages
3. Only admins can send you messages
This was very helpful, mine was always on 2 but I like the first option more, and more users should change their settings to that. - Songsta41

WE KNOW STUPID. - Firemist

Because when I was scrolling down the comments for Top 10 Worst Anime Characters at Sugou Nobuyuki from Sword Art Online, someone posted a comment not EVEN related to Sugou.
