What is Listology?
The short answer to the question above is this: Listology is a repository of movie, book, music, television and other lists.
Creating lists couldn't be easier; you just create an ID, write up your list, and hit "Save."
If you're just here to browse, have a look at the recent activity on the site, or use the box to the left to search for your favorite movie (or book, etc.). If you're having a hard time getting started, here's some Favorite Movie By Genre lists.
Woo-hoo! We've hit the big time! I've had to delete my first 2 abusive posts! Sigh. So here's what I'm thinking about doing . . . If you create a list and allow comments to be made to that list, you and you alone will have the power to delete (but not otherwise alter) comments that others make on the list. I will provide some warning text to the list author cautioning them not to use this power to stifle disagreements, but to snuff out obvious trolls and misanthropes.
In addition to the new weblog-style format of the home page, The Listology now supports threaded discussions! I think this is a big improvement, and it means conversations can advance beyond the one-comment-one-response format I initially implemented (I should have just done it right the first time).
You've probably noticed (if you've been checking), that I haven't updated The Featured List of the Moment in quite awhile. I've been coding away weblogifying The Listology home page (weblog: a ever-updating array of links to interesting content - Slashdot, Memepool, or Scripting.com are examples.) I think I'm almost there . . .
