Sorry to post again, figured I could just post a picture of what is happening.

I started by trying to rank CP coasters, but when I threw in Legend, the rankings started not holding. Now there are three #2s (including duplicated MF) and no #11.

This is still on Safari, Chrome is not working for me. I can view it but not change the order.

But where Son of Beast or the Puritas Springs Cyclone poll would be interesting... assuming you have enough old codgers around here taking the poll.

Sorry, but we’ve already stated several times we aren’t including defunct coasters. IMO it makes no sense at all including rides that are closed and have zero relevance to a “best coasters” poll other than to be nostalgic and that isn’t what this poll is about.

This is by design. Either because you think two coasters are too close to compare, or because you have a large list of "pretty good" rides that you don't have strong opinions of. You can actually have an unlimited number of similarly ranked coasters. Although that makes it pointless.

Ok. I'll take a look at fixing the duplicated coasters. As for the duplicates, you can type a number into the side, and change them to whatever you'd like. It'll save and drag around like normal.

Save function is not working in Chrome, Windows 10.
Also, Legoland California is not listed.

Otherwise, I really like this site. =)

I have a couple of suggestions that I don't think have been mentioned yet.

1. Can you list the coasters by Park, rather than alphabetically by name? It would speed up the process by being able to skip the parks you haven't been to.

2. I've only ranked 5 coasters so far because they're kind of listed randomly and it takes awhile to drag everything around. Would it be possible to have a column on one side with all of your un-ranked coasters, and then a column on the other side with them listed by rank. Then you can drag your un-ranked side to side rather than up and down.

3. What about keeping wood & steel separate? I always liked that about Mitch's polls in which he'd have "your fav steel any park anywhere" on the wood list, and "your favorite wood any park anywhere" on the steel list to compare between the two.

Also, and this is just a little fun item - all photos featured on our coaster poll are photos from TPR Forum trip reports and park index submissions!

When revisiting the site today, this does make it much more difficult to find the coasters I have ridden. Maybe consider an option to sort by park or alphabetically as you are selecting your ridden coasters

For the people who say saving isn't working, what icon is on the left of the coaster name? It should be an up/down arrow. There'll also be a number box to the left, with it's actual position. Those should be saving. If you're dragging around coasters with a single up arrow, it doesn't actually have a ranking yet to save. It needs to be moved up above this line to work.

I now realize that's difficult since you can't drag and scroll up easily (and I'm working on that). I'll come up with a better solution (hopefully...) soon.

And something for the giant slightly unhelpful list of coasters.

Ok, that makes more sense.

I have the single arrow
No number to the right
