Top Ten Problems with TheTopTens' Community in 2018

This site is a hilarious mess right now. Literally everywhere on the site is getting drained and infected by low quality content, irrational users and rustled crybabies. Thanks, Gen-18.

The Top Ten

1 Easily "Rustled" Users

The issue I have with this list is that it's worded in such a way that assumes it's just this website that's becoming like this. People are becoming like this on basically every site these days - kempokid

I'm surprised people fall for that Nickelback/Linkin Park guy. - Swellow

I mean, isn't this always the case on any community. Someone will always be upset by something - Phillip873

Internet is facing a downfall. - TriggerTrashKid

Yep this is a big problem why suddenly I feel like I'm watching the Infinity War movie on this site alone in 2018 why is it on the rise stop please! - htoutlaws2012

Another one bites the dust! - MrCoolC

They just won't stop. - B1ueNew

And we all know why - darthvadern

3 Poor Trolls Becoming Way Too Prominent

I miss the old Lucretia - SpectralOwl

Yes. Before Luc went making lists against conservatives and stuff. - SpectralOwl

I don't really care about trolls all that much, as long as they aren't hurting or annoying too many people. - CloudInvasion

So many trolls!

Don't feed the hungry trolls. - TriggerTrashKid

4 Mob Mentality/Bandwagoning

The worst group that does this are the rustlers, they jump on a hate bandwagon on many undeserving users and a like bandwagon on things no - Nonpointed

Honestly this list makes me feel ashamed of being on this site. - CloudInvasion

That's not really me. Almost everyone liked What About Us and Praying, two songs I don't like. - allamassal

*looking at rustlers* - TriggerTrashKid

5 Stat Padding is Still as Large as Ever

List ideas are hard, I get it. But no one wants to read a list about top 10 metal musicians born in November who find mint chocolate chip ice cream overrated. There is one very big offender on this site who we are all aware of and despite his beliefs, is very uncreative. Admin kinda tried to stop this but it really didn't work. - Puga

This is why I usually do remixes (which I should get back to at some point) rather than make lists. That and it's a lot more fun for me than to make a list more specific than a 17.5 speed limit. - nerffan8000

I actually agree with this, not calling anyone out in particular but do you really think that your list about things beginning with a certain letter will be a very memorable list? - Phillip873

Letter lists are the worst!

Like Puga said, list ideas are hard. I made a list about what your hands can say about you just now because I wanted to do something different and something that users would relate, since most lists are just about movies, T.V. shows, and music. I admit I make a lot of these lists when I don’t really have anything that good in mind, but I want to change that.

6 Lack of Leadership

Honestly, the only leader here is Admin. But he should be a better leader, because he is doing a pretty terrible job. There needs to be a better leader in charge.

I used to lead the community here, along with Matt. Admin becoming stricter has really limited both of us, and no one has stepped up to be a sufficient replacement. I shouldn't have to explain why this is a problem. - Puga

Horrible Admin

Sorry but I think admin is doing just fine - Nonpointed

7 Lack of Variety

Every user is the same. All the featured posts are reviews by the same few people. All users are either a really big metalhead or a really big cartoon fan. I can't tell you people apart. - Puga

Cartoons are childish and some people here need to grow up. And I'm a metal fan but I'm not an elitist.

I mean, I tried to make lists that were "different" but no one really cares to vote on them - Phillip873

A lot of users are the same - Demon_Kitty

Everyone is the same. They hate Justin Bieber and treat him like the spawn of satan, they are a metal-head, they are a weeaboo or a memester! We really need more unique users with a variety of interests and actually be themselves. - Tiffanythewallaby

8 Good Users Retiring

That is true, all of my old friends barely come on here or have retired.

That and some Gen 18 users just give up easily. - MrCoolC

Lucretia, come back, please.

Zxm and BrianScott01... Please come back. - Britgirl

9 Lack of Humour

I think there's a lot of pretentiousness on this site now, that wasn't there when I joined, nearly four years ago... But this site isn't the only one suffering from it. - IronSabbathPriest

I miss when lists about random/dumb things on the internet were made - SpectralOwl

There is a lack of Hugh Murr because he deleted his account. - Britgirl

It's not TheTopVines, It's Thetoptens. - B1ueNew

10 Lack of Good Users

Yeah, I said it. It's no secret this gen is currently lacking compared to generations past in terms of good users. I can name exactly 4 users from Gen 18 that I would consider above average. - Puga

What? The nicest users I have ever met are Gen 18, and they have much better content than older users in my opinion.

Let's face it. This year is so far better than 2017 regarding TheTopTens. I must say, compared to 2017, 2018 users are better. - styLIShT

Gen 17 gave us some of the best users ever, gen 18 has done no such thing - Puga

Nowadays we have users who act like they've known the site forever when they only just registered. these people get unsurprised at actually surprising things like they've seen everything. u guys don't know what it's like 2 b a part of a big community. - Nonpointed

The Contenders

11 People Who Cannot Respect Opinions

I agree. I am sick of this site. When I said I was a communist, every one overreacted. I wouldn't have even started trolling if everyone didn't overreact so much over me stating my opinion, which is why I will never go on this site again, goodbye users I am friends with but I just can't take this. - Lucretia

I don't think it's a big problem. I think that if you don't say, "I respect opinions, but" at the start of every DAMN post like I do, then it could come across as selfish. - TheInsomniac

Rarely has happened to me in the last 4 or 5 months I have been on the site. - B1ueNew

Yeah, say that you like Gen-18 and you'll appearently be a "low-intellect" being. It's ridicoulus - darthvadern

12 Trolls

Like one I could name. - Camaro6

Also troll feeders - darthvadern

13 Dimash Kudaibergen Spam Voting

I get it, Dimash is a great singer, but I don't need to see him with at least 500 comments holding the number one spot on every damn list. - Not_A_Weeaboo

This is annoying!

14 Boring

Lack of variety is to blame for this. - Puga

Depends on what you consider to be "boring" - darthvadern

People being 2 boring is getting out of hand. u guys need 2 realize that surprising things always happen so STOP BEING BORING AND UNSURPRISED - Nonpointed

I agree

15 No Respect for Newer Users

I kind of agree with this one...

I agree. Not all the new users get respect. - Userguy44

Exactly! Show me some respect!

Like, me. - TriggerTrashKid

16 Political Flame Wars

This site is more 80% lib agenda. - B1ueNew

Yes, SJWs are as annoying as ever. No, we don't need to keep feeding them anymore by being as politically incorrect as possible. I mean, no one wants to see this site become Stormfront. - Swellow

Yeah it's kind of been like, Obama and Hillary supporters vs. Trump supporters for a while - TheInsomniac

I hate sjws

17 Users Not Having Good Reputations

More like good users ruining their reps with bad obsessions and thinking they're always in the right even when they are being beaten easily in arguments. And I'm not he above so stop putting words in my mouth, and especially don't joke about pedophilia - Nonpointed

Well they need to earn a good reputation - CadenwithaC

I am underrated. - TriggerTrashKid

I don’t have a good or bad reputation. - Userguy44

20 The Amount of Fortnite Hate

It's an amazing game with a bad community. Hate on other terrible games like Infinite Warfare of Fallout 76. - B1ueNew
