Rank: Anything

quote [ The other night, I was lying in bed thinking about the ?bias sorter? going around Tumblr in 2018. It originated, I believe, as a way for people to rank their favorite K-pop bands. I?d been using it for the past few years to start my end of the year album rankings. It?s an excellent way to review a list and decide what you like more: A or B. ]

Brilliant idea, simple handling ?tackled something similar back then, even with the share functionality.
