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

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

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

I'm a Gen18 user and I laugh at holocaust jokes. Does that count? - Not_A_Weeaboo

2 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!

Calooby has come to save - iliekpiez

3 More Users Deleting Their Accounts

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

Floral, lovefrombadlands are recent. - TeamRocket747

Lovefrombadlands is an example

Floral, lovefrombadlands, MarioNinja101, GreyRose, mila34, at least LFBL came back. A note to Gen-19 users. Only make an account if you truly want to stay and attempt to be the best user you can be. - PackFan2005

4 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

Me like 3 years ago.

It rarely occurs for me when I’m debating 6ix9ine songs but like that’s it - StarlightSpanks

5 Lack of Leadership

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

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. - AnimeDrawer

Agreed, Trying to make a community is like building a house from dust particles - SpectralOwl

Horrible Admin

6 Mob Mentality/Bandwagoning

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

I'm trying to stop doing this

I am really ashamed of this,despite joining in late 2014 - pugiscool

7 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

Make a list when it's necessary. Even users I like are guilty of this. Though it's always been bad. - ReltihFloda

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. - AnimeDrawer

8 Good Users Retiring

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

Litterally the only litgit reason on this crap list - B0S5J4M3S

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

9 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

Yeah. I think I’m a pretty trash user. I’m just a Gen-18 user who comments all the time, and I don’t care about popularity. Nor do I care about making lists - KingSlayer93316

10 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

Lack of Variety is, in my opinion one of the biggest issues on this site right now. Not all lists have to be Television, Music or Movies category. Not all posts have to be game or T.V. show/anime reviews. Not saying there's anything wrong with those, but you don't wanna see spoiler reviews of some 25 shows that you've never seen on the HQ posts page - styLIShT

To be honest, a lot of people here are the same. Why can’t there be a trap music fan, or someone who likes reggaeton or someone who likes something that is considered bad here on TheTopTens? I like some stuff considered bad on TheTopTens, like Rebecca Black. - AnimeDrawer

Usually the pop/metal fans are the ones who are more open with their opinions, other genre fans just chill in the sidelines - styLIShT

The Contenders

11 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

Obviously. There’s just a lot of people who can’t take a joke. I made a joke on a list with Call of Duty 4, and the comment got so much hate that I ended up deleting it. This is why I never post anything funny anymore. 70% of the people can’t take jokes - KingSlayer93316

12 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!

13 Boring

Lack of variety is to blame for this. - Puga

14 Political Flame Wars

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

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

I hate sjws

15 No Respect for Newer Users

They need to earn it. - ReltihFloda

I kind of agree with this one...

Exactly! Show me some respect!

Yes! - Userguy44

16 Trolls
17 Getting mad at people for hating Kirito

This needs to improve big time - TwilightKitsune

Okay that's not my problem. I like Kirito but nope not my problem. - MissRWBY202

Not a Weaboo, Not my problem - SpectralOwl

What is that?
