Top Ten Problems TheTopTens is Facing in Terms of the Community

When I first joined this site, it was a rich place with many ways to get information, humor, and share opinions in a friendly way. Now, times have changed, and this site I once loved is going downhill.

*Note* My intentions here are in no way, libelous or defamatory. As harsh as it may sound, I'm trying to be a good person. Admin, this is no way breaking the terms of use, and if it is, please tell me without threat of account deletion/suspension.

The Top Ten

1 Bandwagoners

I feel like in order to be on this site one has to love metal, 90s cartoons, Mario, and hate pop music, Teen Titans Go, and Frozen, or else you'll be bombarded with dislikes and hate comments. It shouldn't be like that at all.

I'm not into metal, I like some 90's cartoons, Mario, and pop music. I think frozen is an okay film, and I hate Teen Titans Go!. Watch this reply get bombed with dislikes. - Powerfulgirl10

I hate bandwagoners because they are so desperate to look "cool" or hip, they have to be fakes by having no actual opinion on something, In other words they only follow what others' think on something - MLPFan

It's like a commandment, thou shall like Rock, Metal, Anime, Gravity Falls, and whatever they say is good and thou shall hate Justin Bieber, Pop, and whatever they say is bad - Neonco31

I don't want to sound like a hypocrite, but there's too many bandwagoners on this site. - Powerfulgirl10

2 Lack of diversity

Not trying to offend metal and rock fans out there but it's true, the music fans we usually see here everyday are just rock and metal fans, it's just so dull and boring to just have people like these on TheTopTens - Neonco31

There are so many stereotypes on TTT, and so much drama for stupid reasons. - Powerfulgirl10

Is it just me, or does every single user just hate serena? it certainly seems that way - Frouze

Literally every TopTenner nowadays

Star wars fan
Ninjago hater
Mario hater
Luigi fan
Metal music fan
Rap music fan
Pop music fan
Dora haters

Its getting repetitive - VideoGamefan5

3 Everybody running for admin

Luckily it got cancelled. Who would really think the administrators would give up their part of the site to a fifteen-year-old? - Powerfulgirl10

What do people think this site is? Some crappy Minecraft server where any idiot can be given Admin powers? - Zach808

Even if its for fun, it's totally hopeless. Admin isn't going to give everything to someone they worked for their life. So I don't see reasons to get serious about being admin. - zxm

Yes, the administration system is flawed. You aren't doing a favour by giving it to a person whose popularity here has users begging him to overthrow the current admin. If people here actually tried to convince the administration instead of making it a big deal and requesting people to become admins, it'd be a lot less complicated and hassled as it is right now. Be smart, this is a public site, not a private chatroom. - Swellow

4 Hypocrisy

Everyone blaming everyone else for things they've all done in the past. Myself as well, considering I've done everything on here. It gets annoying. Instead of yelling out "criticisms", jut talk positively, and then sort the problems out in one area, instead of polluting cringe everywhere. - ProPanda

Good thing you call yourself out for this.

Well... this list...

5 The legacy of Puga

Tons of hacks on BAND trying to rustle and it's just pathetic. - DCfnaf

Now, don't get me wrong. I like Puga. He's a funny lad, who knows this site, and how to maintain it's community. He is one of the most popular users... ever. And of course, everyone had to be like him. With Puga's popularity, we got an entire slew of new users trying to be just like him. You can't go by a single controverial list, without seeing someone use the word "nonce", or "honking/oinking/etc". So many users are ripping off his style, and it becomes less funny, and more just a bunch of edgy teenagers trying to be funny. It's just cringe all around. Which brings me to the next topic... - ProPanda

Hate on me for this, but Puga knows how to maintain a community, but he sends the message in the wrong way. I feel that he panders too much on edge-humour and using every slur I've seen under the sun. It doesn't bother me too much, but if a user who doesn't appreciate the humor gives out to him, I'm not getting into it. - Swellow

Look, I know dank memes are funny, but people can't just rip off Puga. It's very unoriginal to literally copy off of a very popular person. People should come up with their own personalities and ways to make others laugh instead of copying somebody else. - Powerfulgirl10

6 Pop fans and metal fans not getting along with each other

It's so strange that just some music tastes are used to judge users ( Naivety) - Ananya

The problem is that there are no patricians who listen to true patrician music. - djpenquin999

Well metal fans need to stop bullying pop fans who didn't do anything. - AlphaQ

Metal is cool. I like some pop songs. as an electronic lover, I tend to sit back and watch the chaos. but really, why are people warring over music? people are strange. - Teravolt1422

7 "The Great Zootopia Controversy" and whatnot

This entire thing was mostly fuelled by immaturity and a complete inability to respect other people's opinions, something that's still somewhat prevalent on this site nowadays. Fortunately I've noticed some of the childish arguments easing off a little this month, so fingers crossed the community will carry on changing for the better as a whole. - Entranced98

It's less because he hates Zootopia and more because he's just blisteringly stupid and unbearable to be around. - WonkeyDude98

People seem to misunderstand this little argument. People think that the user that was criticized was a victim when it is not the case. - DCfnaf

This falls under the "bandwagoning" problem, as I can clearly tell that some were just hating on this for attention. One specific user (not saying who, should know who he is) did once say "Zootopia is a great movie, no matter how bad the fans are." Later, he just rambled on with hate. So yes, the Great Zootopia Controversy was all bandwagoning to get attention. - naFrovivuS

8 Lack of statistics

I'm pretty sure that the ratio between subjective and objective lists is really high. That's why I'm announcing a new list series: Objective Outroar. Basically, I will be releasing a bunch of objective lists to raise actual stats in this site of rankings. - ProPanda

Great list Panda - TwilightKitsune

9 Stat-padding

All people care about these days are reaching the highest stats. - Powerfulgirl10

Nobody cares about the top ten basketball players who haven't had a slam dunk, or the Pantera albums that didn't get released in the UK (I know those aren't actual lists). Make lists that have ome form of importance to society, and are not a waste of your time, and the time of people that have to look through these things. - ProPanda

10 Pretentiousness

A Tyga fan for every Metallica fan? You might want to check Tyga's opening week sales for The Gold Album. He has almost no fans anymore. - Zach808

That's not exactly what I meant. I just picked something popular and something unpopular at random in my head at the time. My point was, not everyone thinks alike and there's people who like something you hate. - ProPanda

I'll respect your opinion if you like Tyga and hate Kendrick. - AlphaQ

I'm guilty of this - wrests

You are not always right. Everyone else is not always wrong. You are not the king of the univere and comments like

"By that logic..."


"How is this not..."

Not everyone thinks alike. For every Mettalica fan, there's also a Tyga fan. We're all human beings who view things differently. Learn to live like that. Directing everything at yourself isn't helping anyone. - ProPanda

11 Lists that put smaller issues above bigger ones

Yeah! Some event this year affected you more than something that happened to take more lives and that's bad! YOU'RE THE REASON THIS SITE IS GOING DOWNHILL AH - ProPanda

One of those 'things that need to end' lists even had a silly tween sitcom above terrorism. - Entranced98

This is the "Worst Things About the World in 2017" list in a nutshell. - NiktheWiz

People think Dora The Explorer is more evil than Adolf Hitler.
People think Justin Bieber’s music is worse than terrorism. - Lunala

12 The administration

The only thing wrong with them is their punishment system. Banning users for whatever reason for a week doesn't help anything. - IronSabbathPriest

You can literally get banned for doing something as minor as adding Cory to the House to an anime list. Geez... - Swellow

Admin, I submitted this as a visitor and it didn't go through. I am sumbitting it again, so don't use it as an excuse to suspend me by saying that I'm "trolling." Because I feel the administration is actually a problem TTT has now. - Therandom

13 Trolls
14 The policy

I have this really low only out of pity. Users need to calm down about it, but it's still flawed. a lot of the rules and conditions are pretty useless. I doubt "name calling" is going to decrease the site's revenue, or lose the visitors we have. Many people beginning to decrease the visiting hours, and it's putting the site on a decline. By changing some of the rules to make it a better environment, not just for a certain audience, but for the entire world, we can balance out a community that will let thetoptens thrive for time to come. - ProPanda

15 Rabid fans

This seems to be in direct contradiction with the categories of "Pretentiousness", and Hypocrisy". You can't have it two ways, much less three ways.

I've been cussed, flamed and bullied by these idiots for not liking that awful Lion franchise by Disney. Not everyone is gonna have the same opinion, you know. TLK/TLG is not the best franchise in the world, in fact, it is far from being the best and is one of the worst. Get over it, suckers.

LP fans. Dread Zeppelin fans. Guys stop. - AlphaQ

16 Haters

Sad for me, I can't stand MLP haters... - Neonco31

17 New visitors

I can't stand the visitors of this site. They bash others for no reason, they troll other people and get off scot-free, use caps lock, and are overall very cringy. They're so mean these days. - Powerfulgirl10

18 Rustlers
19 Religious nuts

How many times does Jainism or Hinduism get voted on the "Best Religions" page a day? Probably right now as I write this. - Swellow

20 Weeaboos
21 Disrespecting opinions
22 Justin Bieber gets too much hate

Look I hate him too, but have you SEEN the way this site treats him? It's like he's Hitler 2.0! One list put Justin Bieber as #1 when HITLER AND BIN LADEN SHOULD HAVE BEEN #1! At least Justin didn't genocide people or terrorize (although his drunk driving was pretty awful)! I'm not one of his Beliebers defending him, I hate him too, but this site needs therapy!
They're taking his hate WAAAYYY too far! The only JB haters I agree with are the ones who hate him for his nasty as hell personality! I hate the others who hate him for singing high or making Baby.

23 Arguing over Nintendo characters

This has always been lingering on TheTopTens, but it's gotten much worse as of late. Instead of constantly calling out fanbases and hatedoms of Nintendo characters for being annoying and fuelling arguments for pointless reasons such as characters being 'overrated', it's about time we just took a step back and accepted each other's opinions, regardless of whether or not you share them. In all honesty, it's absolutely ridiculous how much conflict simply liking or disliking fictional characters has caused on here. - Entranced98

Couldn't agree more. If I could I would spam the thumbs up button but it would only let me give you one - Randomator

Seriously man, these people have no life. In fact, I got bullied by a few of these users for liking a Nintendo character that they don't like and even telling the truth about said character.
