Top Ten Dumb Reasons People Retire from TheTopTens
The Top Ten
That is a dumb reason because I'm not popular and I honestly don't care. The reason why I kept on coming back to this website was because I got to express my opinions that a fair amount of the time my still-shy self in real life can't do as easily. Also I keep on coming back because a lot of the users are overall quite nice and friendly and I'm also reminded that I'm not completely alone in the world (which sometimes I do feel that way). Either way you shouldn't retire just because of popularity or really any dumb reason (unless you really have to retire or go on hiatius because of things like college or some huge family trouble or things similar to that). - Anonymousxcxc
I've joined this site two days ago and I'm already having a blast. I find this to be an issue for some members. This website was supposed to be used to express our opinions to each other. There's almost no reason to quit here unless you have much more Important stuff to do like College. All of these reasons are lame excuses to quit. - The_FictionyKnight
Popularity is something very rare on this site, that only 1 out of 1000 users get to obtain without starting controversies. I bet if I never started any controversies, I would still be unknown to this day, because I'm very unlucky as a user, and would've had to force people into following me to get followers. I heard one user cared about popularity so much that he kept annoying people until he got what he wanted. He never did.
I'm not very popular and it doesn't force me to leave here. Why would I want to be popular? - Userguy44
TheTopTens isn't a dating list! Online dating is awkward and uncomfortable - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
This isn't a dating site. I have friends here, but dating is socially awkward. - Userguy44
I never got the appeal of online dating, I mean your "girlfriend" you been having virtual sex with could be a 7 year old boy who pretends to be a girl online. - XxembermasterxX
Wherever you find love is okay to me, but please, know the risks. Especially for all the young people on this site, remember that dating is EXTREMELY risky when its anonymous. - keycha1n
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
I'm okay with criticism, but if you do it to me every time. We're going to have a problem.
Criticism is necessary you 8 year olds needta understand this. - TriggerTrashKid
Now, sadly, the thumbs down feature has been removed - styLIShT
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
I remember when you could do that!
And? You need honest feedback sometimes no matter how sad.
Yes, this is a very dumb reason. How are you supposed to think that everyone has the same opinions as you? Just learn to respect other opinions if you think so. - Userguy44
Cause not everyone agrees or disagrees with a certain thing.
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
The most stupid argument for lists like TTT. If everybody should have the same tastes and opinions, what's the use of those lists at that moment? It would be just a information site like Wikipedia or any other site that gives informations about a subject or topic. It would be also very boring since this is a site based on opinions and not accurate facts ( which would therefor the same for anyone ). If everybody should agree opinions from different sources and persons as the right ones without contra-opinion / pro-opinion or contestion, well... that's called fascism. Also, this is not a popularity / fame contest. I know that I'm just a visitor ( and I have my favorite TTT lists and my less favorite TTT lists ) but I actually learned a lot on the TTT ( how some people think of something for good or bad, how some people are overrate or underrate some subjects, etc... ). There can be real reasons why a Top Tenner retire ( personal problems in their life, their personal situation that ...more
I think he's a terrible, overrated user.
If you can get at least one follower, you're on the road for a good time. If Positron never follows you, then so what?
He didn't follow me and I didn't quit - BoyGenius234
He didn't follow me and did I quit? - PeeledBanana
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
What are you talking about?! I made $30,000 on my lists last year. - GrimmShady
Eh, losing one follower doesn't make a difference. You can just get one or two or more in a day or week or maybe even ten in the same time span (though, that's just me). Plus, this site is more about contributing content rather than being a popularity contest (to most of an extent, but you get the picture). I know I was pretty crazy about getting followers back in the day, but while I do have quite a large following now, I think what's more important than having lots of followers is creating content that your followers will enjoy or praise for your hard effort. That's how I see it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Really? Retiring because of that? This happens to me all the time, it is mostly because users delete their accounts.
I lose followers but I barely notice
I lost more than five or six followers. And some users followed me, and I followed them back. But after I followed them some of them unfollowed me. I don't give much attention to it. - zxm
I rather be on a site that is not as popular than to be on Instagram and those stupid popular sites.
This site isn't popular because there are only around 100 active users.
Or how about you add quality content and make this site popular? - styLIShT
Because this website is very good and not overly rated. - malamJONES
That's your problem - Carri796
I wish one of my lists got removed. - Userguy44
My lists got removed it happens
My posts don't get comments and I'm still here
Because you have no idea how to moderate comments. - AlphaQ
You're here to make lists.
Well life goes on - Carri796
Sometimes it is admin to blame. - Chaotixhero
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...
My newest list got merged because I didn't realize it was already a similar list. But I'm alright - AlphaQ
That's there problem - Carri796
This isn’t a dumb reason at all. There are users retiring because of this. This is also one of the reasons why I want to retire. - Userguy44
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
So Is Morgan Freeman but he is still awesome. - Cheese567
The site was made in 2005, the same year Youtube was made. Youtube isn't old, but TheTopTens is getting way too old flooded with terrible users.
I'm actually really excited because my star wars list has been at the top of the featured page for three days now! - GrimmShady
I'm still waiting for one of my lists to get there! Just one!
I had to wait forever for my first featured list - Randomator
Again your problem - Carri796
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
Oh no, Alexandr left! My life is ruined!
Oh no Britgirl left! I want to leave! - Userguy44
If nightmarecinema left I'd leave
Boredjeff02 left and I'm still here - BoyGenius234
Did someone call you that? No. Stop thinking of that! No ones a loser! - MostTalented_BoyX
Wow you got your feelings hurt *claps* if people hurt your feelings online how you gonna get through the real world - Carri796
I don't think I'm a loser, I know I'm one, and the entire site would agree with me about this.
I'm a loser in this site, but I'm not quitting any time soon! - MarioMaster101
Hello? Vote Spammer Revolution? We can combat the Dimash voters? Eh?
You need to earn your respect with quality content and a good personality might help as well. - Userguy44
Here's a tip: Respect them and you"LL gets their respect. It's really not that hard! - MostTalented_BoyX
Here's a tip you want respect you earn it. - egnomac
Earn your damn respect.
Just make the list for April Fools Day! - sadical
This Is actually a very legitimate reason. - Cheese567
That's a good reason.
This can be legit. I really think at least 1 person has died on here. - FerrariDude64
I died and I'm still online... - SirSkeletorThe3rd
How on Earth is this a bad word? - EpicJake
It usually means "laugh out loud." What's wrong with that? - Powerfulgirl10
There's nothing wrong with laugh out loud
Lol used to mean 'Lots Of Love'. - FennikenFan9
Well your problem - Carri796
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
Just happened to me for the first time last night. - allamassal
Happened to me yesterday
Again not a dumb reason. For the most part, this site is actually getting boring. - Userguy44
It's getting boring for me sometimes. - Userguy44
OK whatever - Carri796
This is actually a perfectly legitimate reason to retire.
This one is actually a good reason to retire. - Skullkid755
I find this reasonable. - SamuiNeko
Block them then. - Userguy44
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
Just block the user. He won't talk to you. - AlphaQ
If you hate that user so much then ignore them - Carri796
Just ignore them
Then you need to work harder on your content to improve your member score. - Userguy44
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
Popular Toptenners don't follow me, and I'm not quitting any time soon! - MarioMaster101
PositronWildhawk doesn't follow me and? - Userguy44
Really *ashamed* man when did we became babies - Carri796
Followers aren’t even what matters.
There is actually more in life than just TheTopTens. - Userguy44
That's actually a pretty valid reason, nothing wrong with that - styLIShT
This is a valid reason - Randomator
Valid reason. - Misfire
OK I get it - Carri796
Yeah I can see that - Carri796
Why do people keep bringing up Jackie Evancho? - Userguy44
Not like followers mean anything anyway - Randomator
Umm whatever - Carri796
I just reached my goal: 100 followers! Time to retire! - sadical
Why should you quit - Carri796
Then why quit - Randomator
LOOK! I GET 700 VOTES EVERY DAY! I NEED TO GET OFF OF THETOPTENS IMMEDIATELY!
That be there problem - Carri796
K I cursed
People gets LIFE - Carri796
Sorry A LIFE - Carri796
Sure some lists are rude but the whole site ain't as bad as the Worst Religions list.
Seriously this site needs variety. It seems like everyone has similar opinions - Randomator
