user picture Kristen: Timeline view would still be quite fun! nov 20 2010
user picture Nina: Wow, I can't wait for those features!!! More specifically being able to make/label folders, but everything sounds so amazing to me. In addition to private accounts, maybe have other privacy options (such as making individual lists private, or certain folders private) would be awesome as well. Thanks, listography--- for helping me organize my life. You've become my hobby. nov 24 2010
user picture lisa: Thanks Nina...and thanks for the feedback!
user picture Kaylee: I'm really looking forward to the listography widget, it will be a good way to let readers from my website view my listography. nov 25 2010
user picture listography: thank you for the feedback on it :) dec 17 2010
user picture a la folie: more colors? and font types? please? dec 3 2010
user picture Beau: Yeah, it'd be spiffy to have a colorwheel thing or a box where you can enter the hex code of the color. dec 4 2010
user picture Karen: Ability to print out the lists. Or the ability to save it in a document. dec 5 2010
user picture listography: yes, thank you! dec 17 2010
user picture francisco: simplenote synchronization. it would be beyond awesome. dec 5 2010
user picture francisco: well now that i think of it, it's not necessary if you have the iphone app. have you considered using a simple unicode check mark instead of an image? ✓ or ✔ dec 11 2010
user picture adam: thanks francisco, i would like to change the checkmark to a unicode glyph, assuming it can be made to work on IE. jan 3 2011
user picture adam: francisco, this is now done! checkmarks are unicode glyph U+2174 instead of an image. jan 7 2011
user picture tinarina: i would really love to have more private folders, even just one more really, so that i can have one private and one private-archive. that would be great! thank you for all your hard work and for making a sharing such a great site! dec 17 2010
user picture listography: hi tina. thank you for the feedback. i totally agree and when we can get the time in, we'd love to have more private features...appreciate you writing!
user picture Maria Beilschmidt: We could be able to create our own folders? dec 18 2010
user picture listography: it's on the list for the future...thank you... jan 2 2011
user picture Yekki: i love listography, but i agree with a lot of the people here; i feel as though i cant organize my lists properly because of the 4 folders. i would love to be able to not only have the option to create new folders, but also to be able to name and customize settings (public vs private, etc) dec 27 2010
user picture listography: it's on the list for the future...thank you... jan 2 2011
user picture a la folie: underlining? jan 6 2011
user picture listography: aww...cool idea. thank you for the feedback!
user picture a la folie: thank you for listening! =) jan 24 2011
user picture nenia: I would love to be able to change the color on all of my lists simultaneously. Like, when you change your background and want to have all your lists in a matching color, or simply just want a change. Thanks for a great site! jan 8 2011
user picture C: yes! i like this suggestion. i haven't put up a background because i'd feel the need to change the color of every one of my lists accordingly. but i see how it could be an issue for those who don't stick to a single list color... jan 23 2011
user picture nenia: Or rather: To set a default color, which you can change when you please (and it changes all existing lists as well). jan 8 2011
user picture Vanille: Hi! What can i do if i don't see the new check marks?? jan 10 2011
user picture listography: Hmmmm...refresh your browser. If that doesn't work...write to support@listography.com
user picture Shary: I would also like to request being able to login from more than one device! I work with two different computers and sometimes it's a bit tedious to keep login in when I want to just add something. (A desktop app would be marvelous, by the way) Anyway, I love listography! Keep up the good work, guys! jan 12 2011
user picture listography: Thank you for writing in...we've got this noted :) jan 16 2011
user picture Carol: I really like the 'generate a list topic' It gives me a lot of great topics. Is there a way to limit it to a category I've selected instead of generating topics of various categories? jan 15 2011
user picture listography: Oh interesting. Right now you cannot do it by category but we'll keep this in mind :) jan 16 2011
user picture fiona: I'd love options to name and add folders, or perhaps a tagging system if that was too complicated; I'd like to be able to have all lists of a certain type (ie films, thrift store finds etc) be able to be easily accessed via one link. Thank you for all your hard work! I love Listography so much. It's one of the only sites I actually want to use much anymore. The site is so clean and easy to use, and so pleasing for a list junkie. Your premade background options are the best I've ever seen on any website. feb 2 2011
user picture fiona: Also, as far as I can tell there is no option for allowing people you're following to see your (otherwise private) lists, sort of like a friends-only filter... I would REALLY appreciate this function, it would make me use the site a lot more.
user picture fiona: More color options for lists (that aren't just candy colors!) would be great too... some browns and tans, etc.
user picture alice o'bright: I know a major suggestion at one point was to make lists next one another (horizontally) automatically adjust to have the same height, giving sites a cleaner look. Is that possible? feb 25 2011
user picture listography: thank you...we'll keep it in mind! feb 27 2011
user picture Erika: I would love being able to cross things out without crossing out the whole line of text. For example, how we can choose to bold only a few words in a bullet, in crossing out form feb 25 2011
user picture listography: interesting...will keep this on our list... feb 27 2011
user picture Freda: I'd like to be able to change my default font to something other than Helvetica or have a way of editing the design of all of my lists at once. And like another post, I would also enjoy having some brown colored lists. :) mar 3 2011
user picture a la folie: is there any way to create a sub-category list? mar 10 2011
user picture listography: yes. please see our guide for details :) mar 12 2011
user picture Justina: Someone may have said this already - I'm new, but is there an easier way to view people's lists other than clicking on "someone new" or on the homepage? like a "users" link, or "most followed" category? That would be nice - I love seeing other peoples ideas :) mar 11 2011
user picture listography: right now, someone new is the best way or the recent lists. we're working on some other ideas in the future as well :) thank you for writing in... mar 12 2011
user picture J: I'm not sure how to explain this... I have one small list that I keep on the top left of my main page, but because the list to the right is so much longer, the second list in the left column is waaay down and there's a bunch of space in between. Could there be a way to make the lists stack more closely so that we have a bit more freedom in organizing our space? mar 13 2011
user picture listography: This is definitely on our to do list. Thank you for the feedback! apr 6 2011
user picture Bliss: I don't know if it's just me or not but I would like to be able to search for lists about a certain topic or subject. I know that when you are on a specific persons listography page that you can search for something within their lists but I was thinking maybe a general search tool on the home page or something that searches the entire listography database for lists that are about or reference what you search for. Just an idea! mar 14 2011
user picture listography: We have a search feature on our home page which isn't prominently featured because it's not ideal yet. We hope to make it better along the way...thank you for writing in :) apr 6 2011
user picture ariadne: I'd love more background colors to choose, maybe a hexadecimal code field? And then I'd like the possibility to move the lists with drag and drop to my favorite position... apr 19 2011
user picture listography: Thanks for the feedback...and just so you know you can move your lists on your home page by clicking and dragging with the little handle in the right corner of your list box... may 6 2011
user picture Helen: I would also love to have more colors to choose from for the list backgrounds, with a color picker or chart. That would be great! may 7 2011
user picture Deanea: Being able to label folders would be the perfect improvment ! I'm such an organization maniac :D may 13 2011
user picture listography: this is definitely on our list... may 23 2011
user picture joolie: for each list, instead of the category name being bolded, how about the name of the list is bolded instead and the category name is in parentheses jun 5 2011
user picture camatkarasana: did you guys update the editing feature? because now I can't choose between the 3 fonts anymore, what's happening?? jun 12 2011
user picture adam: Nope, nothing has changed recently regarding fonts. If the feature is not working for you, please email us a description of what you are seeing at support@listography.com.
user picture Eclectic E: I'd like to suggest being able to comment on a specific item on a list. jun 28 2011
user picture listography: interesting...thank you for the feedback! jul 11 2011
user picture Eclectic E: Oh yeah, one more....It'd be pretty sweet to be able to "Favorite" a single list as opposed to an entire page. You guys rock my socks off! jul 14 2011
user picture Dawne: Add me to the list (ha ha) of people who would like more color options. Also, would it be possible to use both bullets and numbers in the same list? jul 11 2011
user picture lainy: Can you make it so your login doesn't time out so fast? Or give us an option for a time limit? I am constantly having to re-login and it gets old! I LOVE listography and I can't wait fot the android app!!! aug 1 2011
user picture listography: are you logging in from different computers...each time you log in from a different computer it will log you out for safety. when on the same computer you can check "stay logged in" right below your password. aug 13 2011
user picture sezzy: Make it so the list boxes fit like a puzzle and not begin right after the longest box above it. Otherwize if you have a long list above next to a short list then the list on the bottom would begin after a huge gap because of the long list its next to. This is hard to explain ha. :))) aug 8 2011
user picture listography: got it and we're working on this one! aug 13 2011
user picture Sam: It would be great if, while viewing just one list there was a link to go back to the folder (instead of having to click home and reopen the folder). You guys are awesome, i love listography! aug 11 2011
user picture listography: thank you! the best way to avoid this is to use your back button on your browser. aug 13 2011
user picture V: Hello! I'm a new user, and I have to say, I absolutely love listography - perfect for any list lover (like me, hehe)! Makes everything super neat and organized. I think I saw this mentioned above, but would it be possible to turn 'favorites' into a follwer type of feature? And with that, only allow our followers to see our lists? All my lists are private at the moment. I think a 'friends only' type of feature would be nice. I like the idea of (feel more comfortable) knowing who/what people are viewing my lists. This is coming from someone who has all her accounts on the internet set as friends only or locked though, haha. Would really appreciate the consideration. Thanks for your hard work! aug 15 2011
user picture V: Oops, and I should clarify - I meant giving us the option to choose if we want to friends only our lists. :) Thanks!
user picture yvette: Totally made a list about this. A few things are already on this one, but a few things aren't. http://listography.com/ididaread/listography/ways_listography_could_improve aug 22 2011
user picture listography: great, thank you! sep 4 2011
user picture M.: It would be cool to have a customizable side bar (: More colors for the backgrounds... Maybe hex codes? A following option would be nice too. aug 28 2011
user picture mb: The number one thing I am itching for and would LOVE would be to be able to create our own folders.. please and thank you! :) aug 30 2011
user picture listography: definitely hope accomplish it this year sep 4 2011
user picture G: Private messaging system :3 aug 31 2011
user picture listography: Thank you for the feedback...we hope to add more private features one day! jan 2 2013
user picture S: I definitely vote for private accounts as well! Also more elaborate searching and being able to follow one list :) sep 8 2011
user picture listography: Thank you for the feedback...we hope to add more private features one day! jan 2 2013
user picture S: OH, and subfolders within the private folder, if that's possible. sep 8 2011
user picture Cindy: More fonts? sep 16 2011
user picture elizabeth: I am super OCD, and I loooove the website! I anticipate the android app! I really wish I could change the size of the list (how much is shown) so when I look at my page the boxes are the same size, regardless of how long my list is. I am a huge fan of neat, clean, and even! THANKS! oct 3 2011
user picture listography: working on this...thank you for the feedback! nov 6 2011
user picture elizabeth: You all are amazing. Truly. This website is the best! nov 17 2011
user picture Sarah: It would also be convenient to mass-edit lists (for instance, to make all your lists the same color with one click). I say this because I sometimes change my background, and my lists do not coordinate. It is quite tedious to change the color of each list individually. oct 11 2011
user picture listography: this is definitely high on our list...thanks for commenting nov 16 2011
user picture laremylee: Email updates e.g. if I wanna update or add to a list, I can send an e-mail to "laremylee.[secretcodeofmychoice]@listography.com" with the subject "private: [list name]" or "main: [list name]" and the update in the body message. Saves me having to log on if e.g. a certain line for a play I'm writing pops into my head and I wanna note it down somewhere. The idea can be extended to text messaging too. oct 16 2011
user picture listography: thank you for the feedback...interesting idea we've also thrown around :) nov 16 2011
user picture Leebeloola: I just joined and I would love to browse by topic or see the most recent posts added just so I can discover interesting listographers to connect with. Maybe you could add some filters to the search? nov 3 2011
user picture listography: we definitely need to improve "search". it has taken a backseat to many other features. we hope to give it our attention eventually and appreciate the feedback... nov 16 2011
user picture nana: hey. since the updates i can't style my heading in the list anymore. so everything written without a * that i want to bold only shows __. is this an error or on purpose and when, why? nov 17 2011
user picture listography: this is a glitch in our update. we're working on fixing it...should be done soon!
user picture nana: the italic effect doesn't work at all, not even in the list. have i missed something? have the instructions for it changed?
user picture nana: oh my god sorry for spamming you but i figured out that it only not works if i click on more. okay. now i shut up and hope that someone solves this for me. btw, that might be a good new feature: being able to delete your own comments ;)
user picture listography: we love the feedback and we're definitely working on this one :-)
user picture Katharine: It would be good if you could set your timezone in settings so the timestamp on the lists is correct. Living in Australia my lists are often dated incorrectly. Not a huge deal, but makes the timestamp on the lists pretty useless. dec 2 2011
user picture skoobe: hello! happy 2012 to my friends at listography,com! :D i wanted to ask if its possible to restrict the number of dropdowns in the category - cos sometimes it takes too long to toggle through the list of categories in the dropdown dec 27 2011
user picture listography: Ohhh good suggestion. At the moment no. but we'll keep this in mind. My work around is to make my categories more broad and better organized. If you delete certain categories from your lists, they will get removed from your choices. jan 2 2013
user picture Rei: These updates all sound lovely! I would especially like to see an inbox/message system and following/followers in the future to allow more collaboration with fellow list-makers. Godspeed, dear Listography staff! You're all brilliant! :D jan 18 2012
user picture J: I'd love to be able to be logged in from more than one place. Since there's no Android app, I have to log into the site on my phone's web browser, which means I'm logged out when next I try to use listography on my computer. :c feb 20 2012
user picture listography: Thank you for the comment. We really hope to commission an Android app this year! jan 2 2013
user picture sasha: i wouldn't mind there to be more folders as other people have said, but to be honest, i love listography as it is and i wouldn't want there to be timelines/twitter or fb connection. i like how it feels. the lists are simple and sincere. jun 24 2012
user picture listography: Thank you for the comment. Seems like you'd be into a private account feature :) We hope to continue to keep listography simple and clean but also make some good improvements over time... jan 2 2013
user picture lilou: I know these things take time, effort and money, but is there any chance of that mass-edit feature popping up some time soon? Thanks for everything you guys do! :) aug 23 2012
user picture listography: I love this idea. Thank you for the comment. We're working on a big image update but we definitely keep all these suggestions on our list for 'someday'. jan 2 2013
user picture Jessica Rose: Going along with privacy, a block feature would be great. I don't mind strangers seeing my list (as I don't post anything to personal), but sometimes there's just one or two people who you reeeeaaallly don't need keeping tabs on you. sep 6 2012
user picture listography: Thank you for the comment. We hope to delve into privacy blocks one day. In the meantime, please use the privacy folder :) jan 2 2013
user picture alex&ra: You took away the ability to search for lists. Where'd it go? :C Also I can't wait to be able to make folders... <3 oct 6 2012
user picture listography: Customizing folders is definitely on our list! As for search...our search system sucked so we have to rebuild it. It was crashing our site. We hope to have a better search capability one day. jan 2 2013
user picture UnicornTusio: I have a question about creating new categories - can you ever delete them? and why can't and * + / just make a check mark, instead of a bullet and then a check mark? dec 8 2012
user picture listography: When you delete a category from your lists (or modify it) that category will disappear from your choices. The pre-set categories will remain however. jan 2 2013
user picture DionysusDreams: Waiting on an android app patiently ♥ feb 25 2013
user picture cara: Oh man, we need all of these. Especially being able to make new folders. More font options would be fabulous too (: mar 12 2013
user picture hazelaries: We really need to have a general search feature put back in. I'd like to be able to search all of listography when I'm looking for something apr 20 2013
user picture listography: yes we definitely will someday. it's such a big undertaking to do it right. the old one was crashing the site unfortunately. but thank you for the feedback! nov 11 2013
user picture GothFvck: * Connectivity for Status.net & pump.io based sites. * Re-license everything under the GPL or a similar license! * Open source cross platform desktop client with all the features the website offers as well as an offline mode that optionally submits lists when going online again. * Easy way to port a list or cross-post lists onto a LiveJournal based website (Dreamwidth in my case ;). may 10 2013
user picture GothFvck: Also it'd be great if you could accept donations in forms of Paypal, Flattr, and Bitcoin just to make sure this site stays free and ad free. may 11 2013
user picture aysha: Is it possible to show all lists in a category on one page? For instance, I have several to-do lists. Some are archived, some are private, some are ongoing. It would be awesome to be able to go to listography.com/aysha/to_do and see all my lists in this category. may 28 2013
user picture listography: great point...we'll try to add this to our archive view options. jul 16 2013
user picture chiningning: hi please release a version for ipad mini! pretty please. :) jun 28 2013
user picture moony: stretch backgrounds and a button to bookmark/favourite important lists !!! oct 7 2013
user picture Samuel: I would like to ask you to create a mobile version of the website. It's very hard to use the desktop version on a phone. jan 4 2014
user picture Cyndi Lou: you guys should really get started on the follower/following request as well as the elaborate searching capabilities.. if those two were taken care of, i would be on much much much more often (which is something i would super be happy about!!) listography is the bomb-dot-com. jan 18 2014
user picture d: it would be nice if i can input the font code for my list, i want to make my list as cute as possible :3 mar 1 2014
