Welcome to Tierdom: a List of Lists for things I like. Visualized in "Tier Maker" style.
I love having lists, and I even more so love making and sharing lists. The web applications meant specifically for this (IMDB, GoodReads, etc.) are nice, but they have several big downsides.
Hosting my own lists might also have downsides, but there are big upsides. They compare like this:
|Can show lists||✅||✅|
|Uniform UI across lists||❌||✅|
|Own your words (e.g. reviews)||❌||✅|
|Own your data (the lists)||❌||✅|
|Solution rating :-)||😐 55 / 100 😐||🤩 90 / 100 🤩|
It's a way to rank items in a list. Items in the same "Tier" ("rank") are normally considered equal. However, at tierdom, within tiers items are also ranked. The tiers are based of the US grading system with letters (with an "S" added), roughly like this:
Yes and no. Yes, it is "open" at github.com/jeroenheijmans/tierdom↗. But no, it's currently not licensed in any way that allows reuse. I just haven't settled yet on which license to use. Or thought about how to separate content from code, placing them under different licenses.
If you really want to spin off this work, please let me know and I'll give thinking about these matters some priority.
