Thanks for the heads-up. Now that you explained it, it sounds pretty complicated. The problem with the centralized "Hub" could be circumvented, if the plugin accepted (or was able to parse) user generated txt, excel or html files or something like that (numbers and titles). This forum has a nice "recommended reading" section where users could upload their list files (maybe the plugin could produce these based on their choice, so there would be only one predefined format involved). Maybe the plugin could also have the ability to extract lists from webpages (universities, sf-organizations that have top100 lists online, the NY-Times) just like the metadata from other sources, but that would be the icing on the cake. Maybe one could get the some form of top100 from official vendors also just like the metadata.
anyway, this is just a suggestion.
Thanks for zour plugins and keep up the good work.
