Ability to create ordered lists

A feature that I really miss from GR is the ability to create an ordered list. For example, I have been a part of a book club for the past few years, and I have a list (I suppose technically it's a tag) that I maintain of all of the books that we have read in the order that we read them. There does not seem to be a comparable way to do something like this on SG. Another example is that I tried to curate a list of 30 books that I wanted to read in the second half of this year. I used a Challenge to get around this, but it was rather clunky and ends up requiring a lot of scrolling to see what is next due to the bulk of Challenge entries (which make sense when they are being used as designed, but less sense when they are literally just a container for a title of a book).

Thanks for the feedback, jaina! We will definitely add this in the future. For now, for the book club one, it's not the same — and isn't helpful if you make a mistake — but you could sort the list by "Earliest added" to at least see the books in the order you read them.

(And just in case it wasn't clear, you can make a tag public and give it a title in order to spin it out into a list page that can be shared with anyone, even if they don't have an SG account!)

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately it won't work with the tag I currently have set up, since it was something I created a while ago on GR, and the addition order didn't carry over when it got imported to SG, so I would have to completely rebuild the list from scratch. Glad to hear it's on the list for the future :)
