No. This is not a list of coasters people have ridden this is going to be a poll for the best coasters. A ride that no longer exists cannot be the best coaster because it doesn’t exist so I’m not sure what the point of that would be other than to satisfy someone’s nostalgia for a lost ride and that’s not really what this is about.

Again, think about how it would look presenting an award...

“Dear Six Flags Over Texas your roller coaster won an award! Oh, but not the current version, the version that was torn down seven years ago...”

See how that would sound? :P

I did the same thing and had the same problem (if he helps for troubleshooting at all I was using Firefox, I know some things are browser specific)

Ok. I'll add that to my list of things to check. That might be a caching thing.

Can I park my donkey here?

I am unable to rank in Chrome.

There is nothing for Six Flags St. Louis.

I don't think that it is necessary to have the "thank you" message pop up every time that I select a coaster that I have ridden.

Great start and really cool idea!

ditto with the "save" not saving the order.. also in Firefox here.

another glitch I'm seeing, when drag/drop the rankings?

I can "scroll down" while dragging, but cannot "scroll up".. I'm having to move the lower coasters half-way up the screen, then move the screen up and move the coaster up again.

not an issue with moving a coaster from the top to lower in the list, i just hold the dragged coaster at the bottom of the list, and it auto-scrolls down.

I love the idea! Hope this can be fully fleshed out

I've noticed a few problems within the ranking page mechanics:
- You cannot drag at all in Chrome.
- You can drag in FireFox, but cannot save your ranking after.
- You can drag in Internet Explorer, but cannot save your ranking after.
(I don't have any other browsers to test on)

Some notable (in my personal rankings) that are excluded in your database. You may want to consider adding:
- All of Six Flags Over Georgia (Or at least Goliath and Mind Bender)
- Santa Cruz Giant Dipper (I love that coaster)
- Monster at Adventureland (Arguably best Gerstlauer in the US?).

Yeah, I get that, make sense. I think I saw Dragons Challenge on the list so may want to remove it unless you want to give Universal an award for a ride they tore down :br :devil:

I like it that you are working on a new coasterpoll with a good system.
While I was making my list of ridden coasters I couldn't find some coasters that I think are worth putting in the poll:
-Junker (Powerpark)
-Troy (Toverland)
-Baron 1898 (Efteling)
-Red Force (Ferrariland)
-Heidi: The ride (Plopsaland De Panne)
-Thunderbird (Powerpark)
-Daemonen (Tivoli Gardens)
-Joris en de draak (Efteling)
-Vampire (Walibi Belgium)
-Loup Garou/Weerwolf (Walibi Belgium)
-Salama (Linnanmaki)
-Pulsar (Walibi Belgium)
-Big thunder mountain (Disneyland Paris)

And one coaster you can delete from the list since it will be demolished by next season and also because it probably isn't the best coaster anyway:
-Vleermuis (Plopasland De Panne)
