vote2sort - Where your vote counts!

List Type & Features

See What We Offer: List Types & Features

vote2sort offers 3 types of lists and several list specific features. Our aim is to provide as much control over lists as desired to maximize usefulness, effectiveness, and accuracy.

List Types

  • Classic List

    this is our original list type. A classic list will display a slightly larger than thumbnail list item image with any associated descriptive text displayed to its right.

  • Hero List

    this list type is essentially the same as the classic list type, however the list item image is much larger and any associated description will be displayed below the image

  • Video List

    this list type will mimic the hero list type, except each list item will be represented by an embedded or uploaded video. The video will be displayed in an iframe thereby allowing the visitor to run the video from our site. Currently only YouTube and Vimeo videos are allowed to be embedded.


List Features

vote2sort only allows voting and commenting on individual list items. This will provide more granular data for more accurate feedback.
When an up or down vote can be cast, the system will calculate a score based on our formula in conjunction with the number of up and down votes for that item. * The items in the list will be automatically sorted and re-sorted based on the calculated score.

* - depending on individual list settings

  • Start Date

    If this value is set, it will represent the date that any published list will be made available to the public on our platform.

  • End Date

    if this value is set, it will represent the date at which the list will be considered closed. A closed list will not allow anyone to vote or comment on its items. It will still be available for anyone to search for and navigate to.

  • Vote Hint Text

    If this value if present, the supplied text will show up next to each list item’s vote arrows. This value will provide the visitors with a hint as to what and up or down vote would mean in the context of this list.

  • Display Realtime Vote Counts

    The default will be on, but if a list owner toggles this feature off, the associated real-time vote counts will not be displayed until the list end date (if applicable) is reached. The background calculations and automatic item re-ordering will still work as currently designed

  • What Vote Types Are Allowed

    This will determine which (if any) arrows are to be included in this list. A value of None can represent a list that is purely for informational purposes.

  • Searchable?

    This will determine if the list will be displayed in any of this site's search results or will only be accessible if the user has the specific URL. This setting is best used if a list is to be included in a third party site via our "list partner" feature.

  • How List Items Are Sorted

    This will determine how the list's item will be displayed. The default is in calculated order. This means that the calculated totals for each item will determine the display order. A value Always Random will cause the list item to always be displayed in random order regardless of individual item calculations.

  • Votes per List

    This will determine how voting is to take place. The valid options are to allow all visitors to vote up or down on multiple list items or to restrict voting to and up or down vote on only one (1) item per list per user per device.

  • Group Restricted

    This will determine if an additional group check is to be applied to this list. If this value is yes then only registered user who have been assigned to this list's group(s) will be able to access this list. For example, you may want to use this list to solicit votes from a closed group like co-workers, classmates, or a specific group of voters.

  • Vote Calculations

    This will determine how votes will be calculated. The default (weighted) means that votes will be weighted based on pre-assigned applicaiton values for anonymous, authenticated, and prolific users. Equal means that all votes will be calculated equally regardless of user type.

About Us

Find Out More About Us


Years ago our team set out to create a site that would be fun and interactive for everyone. We felt that if people were engaged then they would come back over and over again to learn about the world from us and in turn we could learn about the world from them.
Thus vote2sort was born.
vote2sort aims to entertain, educate and inspire via our “Opinionator” site. We believe that there are many ways to achieve this goal. Our choice is to present interesting and unique lists on various subjects. Along with our content creation partners, we are confident that we have something that will interest you.

What makes us different?

We take our tagline “Your Vote Counts” seriously.
At vote2sort, we allow you to vote on the individual list items, not the list as a whole. Based on your vote, the item may move up or down on the list providing you direct participation in the process. The same applies to comments. We have found that people love to express their opinion in the form of comments and at vote2sort, you are able to comment on each list item as well.
Explore and enjoy our site!
