2 They don't have a boyfriend or a girlfriend on the site

What the hell is wrong with them!?!

Really? I don't know any online daters.

What the heck? - MarioMaster101

But that isn't the purpose of this site... - Misfire

3 They get criticized

Criticism isn't that bad. The people who can't handle this criticism are probably sensitive. - Userguy44

I bet the people that left because of criticism are oversensitive people who would have been parasites to the site. - DarkBoi-X

People need to face the truth. - Luckys

Criticism is necessary you 8 year olds needta understand this. - TriggerTrashKid

4 Someone thumbs-downed your comment

So? People have opinions! - Userguy44

Sadly, I see comments of people supporting animal abuse and bullying.
But the sicc creators of the website wouldn't let me dislike them. - BurritoSeal

Now, sadly, the thumbs down feature has been removed - styLIShT

I remember when you could do that!

5 People don't have the same opinions as them

They are not ya duplicates ya morons! - TriggerTrashKid

This is an opinion based site so good luck with getting everyone to agree with you - Randomator


If you have different opinions, that's even more of a reason to stay. You add diversity to the opinions on the site and keep it interesting. If everyone always agreed with each others opinions, everyone would blend into one and everyone on the site would be insignificant. Besides, if you have different opinions, you will get a lot more attention. Don't take that advantage and retire with it. - Songsta41

7 They thought TheTopTens gives you money by making lists but realize they don't.

What the hell

This is Truly dumb. Did anyone actually retire in this manner? - Animefan12

There's no way someone was actually that stupid, right? Oh wait, this is the internet.

I wish they would give me money. Of course then everyone would be hammering out crappy lists just to get some dollar to pay their bills. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

8 You lost one of your followers

One of my followers (who I'm not going to name) unfollowed me. Like, I didn't care how many lists he had or how popular he is, I DON'T CARE. I got over it in 30 seconds, if someone unfollows you, then you shouldn't care, you will probably gain more followers. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

I have lost followers.Of course mostly account deletions - DarkBoi-X

So? - Userguy44

I lose followers but I barely notice

Nobody cares

I’d rather be here than Instagram or Facebook - Randomator

I rather be on a site that is not as popular than to be on Instagram and those stupid popular sites.

My posts don't get comments and I'm still here

You're here to make lists.

So what? - Randomator

12 Their lists never get approved and they blame the admin

Lucky for you, you can make just about any list with the new My List option! However it won't look good when you appear on a rankings list...

14 They think the site is getting old

This reason's not so bad. - Misfire

This is an okay reason. It could get boring after awhile - Randomator

I think this is valid. It's their thoughts.

Who cares if the site is getting old? It's still a awesome site and that there's a lot of members online everyday! - MostTalented_BoyX

15 One of your lists isn't popular

Popularity leads to at least one person stalking you and finding out who you are, where you live, and what your life is like. In other words, no thank you.

A lot of my relatively creative lists are unpopular, do I retire because of that? No. - styLIShT

16 Someone you followed left TheTopTens

Oh no Britgirl left! I want to leave! - Userguy44

If nightmarecinema left I'd leave

Well your problem - Carri796

24 Because a bunch of other users leave

That seems to be the common reason now. I mean seriously it seems like everyone just leaves because other users leave nowadays - Randomator

Come on, even I wouldn't leave for that reason. It's just an excuse for you to get attention.

I saw one user whom I won’t name that said they left because others left. - PackFan2005

Happened to me yesterday

Just happened to me for the first time last night. - allamassal

Just ignore them

If you retire because of this, you're being a coward. What I mean is, ignore the user instead of leaving the site. I mean, it's ONE user. - EpicJake

If you hate that user so much then ignore them - Carri796

Just block the user. He won't talk to you. - AlphaQ

30 They have issues

OK I get it - Carri796

31 They only look at lists like this

Yeah I can see that - Carri796

32 Their member score never improves and they blame admin

I am sorta obsessed with the whole member score thing, but I don't necessarily make slapdash content because of that, and I would never retire because of that - styLIShT

There isn't anything to blame admin for it. Admin may follow some users and don't follow others. But in this case they are serious. You'll automatically get points if you work. - zxm


Why are you blaming someone for something they are not doing wrong? - EpicJake
