You can change your ranking after publishing the list either by submitting new rankings on the list page or by editing the list through List manager. In both cases, it will be considered as a “rerank” and your previous ranking will be cancelled.

Rank lists created by others
You can rank all lists created by any Rankmylist user unless:


the list is unrankable,
the deadline for submitting rankings for the list has passed,
the list creator has chosen the list to be ranked by only selected people and has not sent you the private link for ranking (or you did not access the link through the private link).

Share your ranking
You can share all types of published lists created by you and other users, regardless of whether you are able to or did rank it or not.

You can share ranking for a list or an individual item. For both cases, you can choose to share your own ranking or the current average ranking. You must be signed in to share your own ranking of a list or an item.

You can reset and submit your rankings for a list unlimited times as long as the list does not have a deadline or is unrankable. However, a Rankmylist user can have only one valid ranking for one list at a time. When you change the ranking of item(s) in a list that you have previously ranked, your previous ranking is removed from the system and your new submitted ranking is considered the valid ranking of the item(s) from then on. In other words, you are not considered a new ranker for the list but rather a “reranker” and your reranking will not affect the number of rankers of a list or an item.

Email address and username are unique to an account. You cannot create multiple accounts using the same email address. If your chosen username is already taken by someone else, you can use a variation of it. If your username was changed as a result of your account being hacked, you can recover your account and change it back. If you think someone else is impersonating you or breaching your trademark/copyright, report it to us as well. If you have lost access to your email account we cannot release the Rankmylist account or the associated username to you. Although we understand that this can be frustrating, this policy is meant to ensure Rankmylist accounts don't fall into the wrong hands.


C. Disabled/Suspended accounts


Users will usually receive warning via email as well as on our platform if an account is at risk of suspension or ban due to flagging and/or reporting. Unless an allegedly offending conduct is corrected or explained, the account may be banned or suspended. In case of a suspension, you will receive an email informing you the duration of suspension period. Channels that has been flagged by a certain percentage of the viewers may be automatically suspended. Rankmylist may override this automated decision after reviewing the contents. You can also appeal against the suspension or ban of an account. Depending on the frequency or nature of offence, account(s) may be suspended or banned without warning. If you believe your account was suspended or banned by mistake and without warning, you may report to us using our troubleshooting web-form . If your account was suspended or banned with warning, you can appeal to us for restoring the account (LINk) If have not received an email informing of the suspension or ban, you may be experiencing a sign in issue. If your account was deleted by you it cannot be restored. In such cases, a new account with the same email address can be created, but you will lose all your content and settings and you may not be able to get the same username if it has been claimed by someone else.


D. Other issues and error message


If you face any other issues while using our platform, you can file a troubleshooting report by our web-form or contact us at support@rankmylist.com and send us a user feedback.


Privacy and safety

A. Your Privacy

Rankmylist wants you to feel safe when you’re on the platform and encourage you to inform us if lists or comments on the platform violate your privacy or sense of safety. The followings are guidelines to protect our user’s privacy apply to all users across the world. While a content in question may not violate privacy laws of the list creator’s country, it may still violate Rankmylist's privacy guidelines. We address more potential privacy concerns of our users in our Privacy and Safety FAQ.


1. Reporting a Privacy violation

You must be uniquely identifiable within the content you seek to report for a breach of privacy (learn more). A privacy violation can often feel harassing by nature. If any user is maliciously posting content about you or directing insults at you, it can be considered harassment. It is possible that the user is not aware that someone feels uncomfortable with a list or comment that they've posted. We advise you to begin by contacting the list creator or commenter to let them know and ask to take down the content in question. You can use our messaging feature to do this. You must decide if this content or comment violate your privacy or there is something else about it that you find objectionable. If you think that the content violates Rankmylist’s Community Guidelines, please flag and report it (and ask your friends and family to do the same) to bring it down automatically. If you want to bring the content to our attention, you can file a complaint using our online form for reporting privacy violation. We advise you to go through our Privacy and Safety FAQ and Community Guidelines before proceeding to filing a complaint. If you use this complaint process to harass other people on the platform or to create false privacy reports, your Rankmylist account may be suspended or banned. If someone copies a video that you created or content that you own, you may wish to file a copyright complaint.
