SUGGESTION: Stacks improvement

This topic is locked from further discussion.

The new 'Stacks' feature allows creating customized lists of titles which could easily be shared and recommended by other users. This sounds like a great idea, but makes a not-so-good replacement to the good old game lists we used to have on the old GS website.

I Previously posted the following suggestion on: User Reviews and Ratings. VERSION 2.0 IS LIVE but I think it deserves its own topic:

For anyone who manages their games lists by status, the following scenario should probably feel familiar:

When I find a game I want to play, I add it to my 'Games I want' stack.
Once I acquire a game, I move it from 'Games I want' to the 'Games I own' stack.
Once I get the time to actually start playing that game I copy it from the 'Games I own' to the 'Games I'm playing' stack.
When I finish a game, I usually rate it, so I would like it to automatically move from 'Games I'm playing' to the 'Games I've finished' stack (Maybe GS developers can add a check-box or a rule I can set for this in my profile settings). If this can't be done, I would move it manually to the 'Games I've finished' stack.

This is how I used to manage my lists in the old GS...I hope I'm not the only one.
If you support this suggestion, please reply...

this feature should definitely be implemented in the future. moving from stack to stack was easier before. its still easy now, but the option from within the lists would still be appreciated.

I am still waiting to have more than one hundred items in an ordered stack. Once that bug is addressed, I will consider other features for stacks.

How do you easily move from stack to stack?

I only found it possible by removing an item from a stack and adding it to another (2-step manual work)

that's pretty easy if you ask me. not too many clicks, or steps.

@leon2365: I'm sorry, but that's not good enough, with all due respect. Especially since the old lists were easier...

it may not be good enough, but its easy enough. though like I said, an option to be able to do it from within the lists would be nice. though it isn't really necessary.
