Group Lists (Multiple Curators)

Apr 03, 2012 by Freya Lauren Kellet
Official Community Listly Wish List | Group Lists (Multiple Curators)

It would be great if there could be a group list option (maybe people would have to pay for it) that allowed a list to have more than one main curators that are all able to do more on a list than just comment, add, or like. So they would be able to do everything on a list that the original list creator can do now.

exporting list content

Jun 24, 2012 by Hans De Keulenaer
Official Community Listly Wish List | exporting list content

When accumulating a good list over time with unique content, a pdf export feature of the list titles, comments and links would be nice, e.g. to share as a memo.

Apr 30, 2012 by Mark Bernhardt - hootsuite.com - 3736
Official Community Listly Wish List | Integrate with HootSuite, as an app

For those of us who use HootSuite to manage content across platforms, it would be handy to be able to manage List.ly lists from a tab on the dashboard.

Be able to make picture lists!

Mar 30, 2012 by Freya Lauren Kellet
Official Community Listly Wish List | Be able to make picture lists!

It would be great to be able to make lists that were just pictures, right now the pictures are to small to read any writing on them.

This is to allow you to feature Meme photos for example

Official Community Listly Wish List | Neater auto tweets please!

It would be great if the Tweets generated automatically were neater, without cut off words and truncated Twitter @usernames

Local lists

Apr 30, 2012 by Jonathan Brewer
Official Community Listly Wish List | Local lists

Be able to create and view lists by category meant for local audiences. This would allow for curation of content similar to the old dmoz directory days. Example: Milwaukee's best free wifi coffee houses

Top ten lists with more items below

Mar 29, 2012 by adelaide tweet
Official Community Listly Wish List | Top ten lists with more items below

It would be great to have a list type that highlights a top ten with long entries but has a brief list of other items below that users can vote up. Like a cross between a long & short list!

Official Community Listly Wish List | Explore lists

Provide a way to discover and explore lists other than the trending lists. Possibly show me lists that my Facebook and twitter friends are creating.

Official Community Listly Wish List | accounts independent from twitter or facebook

Please allow users to create accounts independently from twitter or facebook. Otherwise, you force users that do not use these services to create an account there first, which may act as a barrier.

Add twitter account link to a list using just the @username

Official Community Listly Wish List | Add twitter account link to a list using just the @username

Easier than entering the full address, but should link to the Twitter account profile page 🙂

23

Easily add tweets

Apr 30, 2012 by Viveka vonRosen
Official Community Listly Wish List | Easily add tweets

It would greatly enhance tweetchats if we could easily add a single tweet as an item to a list. Transcripts are too long and full of too much blather. Storify is a bit of a pain and not easy to use on the go.

24

Add character count to item name when creating items on lists.

Is there a way to make different page within a list?

Official Listly FAQ - What do you want to know about Social Lists and the Listly Platform? Tell us and we'll answer | Is there a way to make different page within a list?

I wanted to know if it was possible to limit the number of listing and put the rest on different pages (like a forum). Fist 10 entries on first page, the next 10 entries on second page and so on...

Official Listly FAQ - What do you want to know about Social Lists and the Listly Platform? Tell us and we'll answer | How Do I backup my List?

Take your list, eg

http://list.ly/list/70h-meme-creators

The essential part of the URL is just

http://list.ly/list/70h

This URL works too

http://list.ly/70h

(ie 70h is the unique ID for the list)

Every list has an RSS feed

http://list.ly/feed/70h

So you can use this to backup your list
