    I would very much like to have buttons available when editing my Hot 10 list that would permit me to reorder them without retyping all the numbers. I'd recommend an interface with a "Bump Up" button and a "Bump Down" button next to each entry on the edit page. This would exchange the game with the game above or below it as appropriate. Simple enough in JS and would alleviate the need to write down the game numbers for the switch.

    Useful for Personal Top 10, REALLY useful for Hot 10.

This has been asked for numerous times (from me at least twice I think) but it must be a pretty low priority.

Drag-and-drop would be better: http://wiki.script.aculo.us/scriptaculous/page/print/Sortabl...

This makes the Hot 10 much more usable. Expect people to start changing their rankings more often...

I've had great success using this guy's drag and drop javascript stuff.

Here is an example of it in use in my implementation of Ingenious:

    Dude! That is PERFECT! I was just coming onto the site to volunteer to write up the js for you, but you've already got it working like a dream!

    I'd tip you geek gold, but given your current debt level . . .

Aldie, any chance we could get the option of renaming the two lists?

For example rather then 'personal top 10' and 'hot ten' it would be nice to be able to use those two lists instead for something like 'top 10 Euros' and 'Top 10 Wargames' or 'Top 10 when playing with my Wife' and 'Top 10 when playing with the Guys' or 'Top 10 Beer and Pretzel Games' vs 'Top 10 serious games'

I'd certainly like that =)

    I think the lists are used for analysis, so letting them be used for different purposes would toss a bit of a wrench in it. There could be a "personal list" that each user could name whatever they want though . . . "

This change is terrific! This really makes the lists more usable. Thank you!

I love the idea of a Customizable List, but it doesn't interest me as much now that the front page of the profile is so limited.

Yeah, no kidding. A seemingly minor improvement, but it should assist quite a bit in keeping these up to date. I would have appreciated an announcement. I just discovered them today. So I made my own announcement in the "How to BGG section".
