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

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

Or, I can just use AdBlock like I have been doing, so I guess the feature is useless. Besides, why would you even allow third party advertising? At least I don't have to deal with the "It appears you are using an adblocker, and you are going to leave this site" thing.

2 Edit your comments

I'm surprised how many people here, even members, haven't noticed they can do this, or even reply to comments. Still seeing so many chains of unlinked comments after this was put in place annoys me. - PositronWildhawk

Click on the button with 3 lines next to your comment and hit the pencil button. I think you can only do this once. - Pokemonfan10

We all make mistakes whether they be spelling, grammar, or just that you meant to say something else. Fortunately, if you were logged in when you submitted a comment, you can edit that comment. - admin

Unfortunately, both this feature and the comment reply feature only work for the first three comments on a list when I'm browsing on mobile. - PetSounds

No you can't. - Aquastar_of_DewClan

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. - SapphireGrim

If VideoGameFan5 didn't tell me then I wouldn't have known. - AlphaQ

4 Delete your comments

I delete my comments all the time because I realize they sound really stupid. - RockFashionista

How do you delete your comments?

Wow, never knew you could do that! But how do you?

Mine got deleted - Spiritualsavedboy

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

I messed up a bit on my last remix (the order wasn't that right),and my comments on the items kinda *sucked*,I'll edit it when I have time,likely tomorrow. - Elina

7 Receive message notifications by email

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

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

10 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

19 Have your lists removed

I just sent a message to delete an original list that I had due to a careless error. I don't know if they'll do it or not.

You just gotta ask admin to remove an offensive list you've made.

As much as I wanna delete my cringeworthy comments and lists, I have a feeling it would only cause damage as people would not know about the mistakes I made so they would prevent themselves from making any more.

They deleted one of my duplicate lists. The request worked. - listotaku17

20 Follow other users

Stop adding useless items, admin. - Firemist

What? No, it can't be true! - Cyri

No way - KingSlayer93316

21 Vote on a list

I pressed the +, and this typing thing came up. Is this voting? - TeamRocket747

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.
