I have a pressing need for a wish list, one that is Internet-enabled. Writing down things I need, desire, or would like to get for someone else simply isn't the most efficient method. (Plus, I don't do that, since just about every list I create aside from my grocery shopping list is web-enabled in some way.)
What I've been using is Amazon, eBay, and half.com's implementation of wish listing, but these leave something to be desired. For one thing, though it's easy enough to create a list of items, not all of the items I desire are or will ever show up on these websites. So I might be waiting for some time before I'll be notified that an item on my Amazon wish list, for example, will become available.
Some people lists things they like to make on Pinterest. That sounds interesting, and it provides an example of stuff that may never show up on Amazon or eBay (and certainly not half.com).
I ran a quick search and registered for something called Wish 2 List, described as "a social wish list web site where users can create free wish lists and interact with one another." Okay, that sounds like a decent idea, and time will tell if it works well. But I find that asking y'all is a more efficient way for me to find out about similar services. Have you used a network/web-driven wish list before? What has worked best for you -- particularly in the ways I've described (i.e., listing stuff that may never show up on Amazon or eBay)?
