TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #8: CHAOS EMERALD (STT) (wait why don't we have an image for this)
Hey, that's...a Chaos Emerald!

In a box even!

What could be better than that?

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #7: 500 Pts (KC) (no image for this one either? What a disgrace!)

I mean, we actually have score charts on TSC so what's not to like about an item box that just boosts your score directly?

...Oh. The fact that you can only get one in a mode that isn't allowed in score runs. Oh well.

In that case I guess you can just think of the 10-ring box as a proxy for our favorite point-scoring box. After all, it's even more score--1000--if you can go the rest of the level without getting hit! And if you already have 255 rings, then its value doubles to 2000 points, and you just cash that in right away whether you stave off hits or not!

But when you do, just think of how much simpler it would have been to hit a box and score 500, no matter what.

As you may know if you've been around TSC's history, the site was founded on October 23, 2003. Naturally, these countdowns are timed so as to coincide with that anniversary.

What you probably don't know, is that five days prior to that event, the first jolts of electricity were being run through a newly assembled contraption, forty-eight by forty-three by twenty centimeters in size. Granted, nowadays such nascencies are commonplace, certainly more than just one per day, but this was one I would come to know quite well. This one would eventually go on to become...me.

Now that that's taken care of...

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #6: LIGHTNING SHIELD (S3, S&K, SR, SA, Sv, and just about everything since)

Isn't electricity great?

The 1994 incarnation of this item box was especially strong, staving off one contact hit and any number of projectile or electricity hits, and until then it brought in any and all nearby rings--and in the case you were playing as Sonic, you could also get a midair jump to get to high places easily! What a beating.

Projectiles no longer "bounce off" of shields in more recent games that use this item, and the double-jump action provided by the shield is likewise gone. Still, bringing in swaths of rings quickly is a capability not to be underestimated, particularly on ring charts and timed "collect rings" objectives such as SA2/B mission 2s. For that it earns a spot.

The finish line is in sight! Let's get there at warp speed!

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #5: CLOCK (SCD)

Okay, so in levels this doesn't do much, just freezes the scenery. Not to mention there's only one in the game, it requires a trick to reach, and after reaching it you can't complete the level. But in the special stages, it really shines...giving you 30 FREE SECONDS! Too bad it can't become a factor until your time already sucks. So much potential, so little opportunity.

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #4: TELEPORT (S2)

Because what's better than potentially going from near the start of the level, to the end, in one fell swoop?

Maybe throwing your opponent onto spikes? Because the teleport can do that too, depending on where you hit it!

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #3: 100 RINGS (Riders, SR:ZG) (oh wait we don't have images for this game do we)

10 rings? Bah. Even 20...too little. We demand our rings in packages of 100! Unfortunately, the only games with 100-ring boxes also lack ring charts, but you can dream.

TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #2: SPEED SHOE (Pretty much everything)

Simply the penultimate icon of what TSC is all about.

This Top Tens needs more speculation.

I speculate that #1 will be ok.

EDIT: Also the ring-attracting shields in the newer games are Magnetic, not Lightning. >:O

As has become tradition at this point, first the Honorable Mentions:
GOGGLES (S1) - They do nothing. Needless to say, that's better than a few of the items out there.
EGGMAN (S2/S3/S&K) - Not so much on the S3/S&K side of things (though even there it has at least one accessibility purpose, for Knuckles in Lava Reef 2), but in S2 (where it's a 2P-only item) it's better than Goggles were in S1 since at least you get the item box point and a chance to inflate your Total Ring stat.
FLAME SHIELD (S3/S&K/S3D) - Useful for picking fights with Alondite, or whomever the punching bag of the month may be.
SHRINK (KC) - Frustrating yakuzas the world over since at least August 2008, and probably even earlier.

And the dishonorable mentions:
BLANK ITEM BOX (S1/S3/S&K/SA2(B)) - what a waste of space and material
LEAD SHOE (S3) - There are detrimental items that have their esoteric good points, and then there's the Lead Shoe. Simply terrible.
WETFLAME (S1WTFLAME) - You just lost The Game.
RANDOM RING (SA(DX)/SA2B/SH/a bunch of Advance and Rush games and maybe more I overlooked) - Really. No item box has ever garnered more hate from TSC over the years.

And finally, our feature presentation.
TOP TEN ITEM BOXES #1: S (SCD/S3/S&K)

What could be a better insignia of TSC than speed? Overall superiority. Enough said.

See you back here in 173 days when two more contestants will try their hand at Building a Crappy List! How much more room can there be to do worse?

I say we get back to the roots of the Top Tens and have something like the "Top Ten Best Records" or something.

Maybe on day 1 we put the 10th best time, ring, score, boss (etc) records? And then day 2 its 9th and so on in that fashion.

Silly RR, ring chains are for kids.

But seriously I wouldn't be surprised if those were ignored or counted in the rings section <_<

With that said I like Cruizer's idea.

Firstly learn2quote

Secondly, there's the obvious Times/Rings/Scores/Bosses records to look at. But would we also include special/time attack/extra race/ring chains? Or would this just be changed to the best records for the 35 games TSC cover?

I assume no one's doing Top Tens this time? After all, I believe up through #7 should have been revealed by now.

I have a couple of ideas but would rather not do a rushed job. But if no one else is going to do it...

Okay, it's that time again. Actually it's a fair bit past that time but no one seems to care, so let's begin!

Top Ten TSC Emoticons! Presented by Zeph and flyby!

You only wish you'd have thought of something as awesome as that. And no, we're not using that list on the Chat Stats page because it's both inaccurate and missing a lot of emotes, not to mention it doesn't take into account the people on the forum (not that that had a major impact on our choices anyway...). And if you think you know which ones will make the list you are WRONG ok.
>:O!!!

Since we're starting late flyby and I will be posting a total of 3 emotes every day, with #1 being revealed on the 23rd. I'll be posting #10 later today while flyby will be revealing #9 and #8.

Speculation time gogogo
