More priority levels
Instead of just a star indicating priority and then filtering it into a list, set up more than one priority level. I need to have priority tasks but also need them sorted by high, medium, low, and none. not everything is the same priority. I find myself having to rearrange the tasks on the list all the time.

Having at least 3 priority levels and being able to sort and filter by priority is a must. This is why I'm using RTM instead of Wunderlist. I love the look and interface of Wunderlist, but functionality is most important. Please add this so I can use Wunderlist! (When sorting by Due Date, Priority should be second, and vice versa.) THANKS!!
You can just use hashtags as a workaround (#low #medium #high) and then just filter by that.
I totally support this request. This is the main reason I haven´t switched to wunderlist yet.

This idea was published on March 03, 2012. Why it has not been implemented yet?
I would vote for a list of custom priority levels.
For example, I use three basic lists 1) To-do List, 2) Projects List, and 3) Someday/Maybe List. I like to rank priority as Urgent - Important, Non Urgent - Important, Urgent - Not Important, Non Urgent - Not Important.
I am stealing concepts from many but this makes for a very simple yet elegant todo list. I've tried tags but its hard to type useful tags each time and makes creating lists cumbersome.
What would even be better than limited categories like high, medium, and low is the ability to manually prioritize (drag and drop) and have it "remember" that prioritization as you navigate through the various views, like Today, Week, All, and specific categories.
Todoist is very good at this custom order that stays the way you ordered it forever.
I would like to be able to add different tags of flags. Ideally to creat them myself. For example add the tag "talk to my boss about it". I can then just tag each item i need to check with him and with the press of a button in have my talking points.
I like the idea of @Kevin Weber a lot! At least the part with 10 levels of priority showing inside checkboxes.
I would like to have different priority levels and/or colors.
1st click on the star = level low, green star / 2nd click on the star = level medium, yellow star / 3rd click = level high, red star
Right now, we can only use one star to prioritize. I would like to have more priority choices. 5 priority levels plus the ability to create additional custom ones would be great. But at the very least, I would like to three levels of priority.
See the list of top requests... Priority is the 5th most requested functionality to be added

I've created a simple prototype to solve this missing feature!
Now the big question: Do you want me to further invest into this project? This really depends on your feedback.
The prototype is fully compatible and in sync with your existing Wunderlist account. Additionally, you can drag'n'drop tasks into a priority matrix or numbered list.
The full source code and a link to a working demo are on Github:
(Github -> @kevinweber -> Project: prio)
Please contact me if you want me to proceed working on this tool!
For each entry that I create I would like to set a different priority in at least 4-5 levels
The only reason why I prefer Todoist. They have a simple 3-4 priority task.

Com'on Wunderlist - users have been asking you add this feature for FOUR years. Why ask users for feedback if you are not interested in listening to it. At least state your reasons for not responding to this request some where near top of comment feed so that we know your rationale. I certainly cannot see how adding optional extra coloured stars would make system more complicated. Users can choose to hide some or all of them if they do not wish to use them (as can be done already with the red star!).
Sorry, I had to withdraw my votes, because I need them to vote for linked tasks, my main wish.
Still I would like to encourage the Wunderkinder very much to introduce 4 priority levels.
high, medium, low, and none are good!
More prio levels would be nice, but it isn't an absolute must for me because you can already drag and drop tasks to change the order. The only thing that is really missing with that is that once you sort the list by date or alphabetical the order you created by dragging is gone and I can't find a way to get it back.
I would expect it to be possible with the 'sort by priority' option, but in the Windows Phone app that is only available for starred items and in the web version that sort option is available but it doesn't work.
Please! On paper I rank everything as A, B, C than A1, A2, A3, I then re-arrange my list in order of importance. My outlook calendar reflects what I have written out, Franklin Covey style on paper. This would give you an amazing advantage over the competition, if it were easy to use and rank. Perhaps if you define the ranking system.. A, A1, B and then we press "sort" it automatically puts things in order for me. Sweet. I put my phone on my desk look at my list, then open up work outlook and plan my day. Or I sit in a meeting, type it into my smartphone and rank it B, automatically, then press sort. Organization quickly to control chaos.
I agree - color coded priority levels. So high would be red and low would be yellow or something similar.
