Top Ten Reasons Why Admin Should Scrap the PolicyPuga It is the 22nd of June. The policy has been established since the 19th of June. I thought it was a bad idea, and nothing has made me change my mind so far. I don't know why there hasn't been a list about it, heck, there's been two high quality blog posts about it so admin should be able to take a list pretty well too. Without further ado...
The Top Ten
They do need criticism. Yeah, it is bullying, but if you give biased reasons, act immature, etc, you need criticism then. But No! This policy is preventing us from doing it. And their is also a difference between "Criticising" and "Bullying". Criticising is about giving you certain advice. Bullying is being a jerk to someone. - EpicJake
Criticism hurts many users, but it makes you learn where to improve. Don't be a baby about criticism like a user I can't name because the policy prevents me from criticising users. - Puga
They need constructive criticism, not some guy blatantly saying their list sucks and telling them why. Tell them why it is good but also tell them what they could work on - CityGuru
Criticism is allowed on the site, just critisize in a nice manner and you'll be fine - darthvadernV 18 Comments
Admin said that if I messed up one more time that I would either get suspended for a long time, or lose my account, after all I've done. Now I have to be extremely careful what I say.
Yeah, I'm afraid of saying it's a bad post or something and losing my account because the user says "I'm bullying them" - Therandom
Not with me. I criticize a lot and I never get warnings. Just read the Terms of Service and act legalistically.
Well they are obviously overreacting and they can't lose their account unless they do something very much agianst the policy - darthvadernV 15 Comments
Exactly, they are serving their own interest and moving every creature here like a puppet. I don't give a darn, I'm not like rest here who are wrapped around their fingers and tolerate non-sense on a regular basis. I'll open my mouth, when I feel the need to, and will open it big. - Vip3r
What is more important to a kingdom; the king or the community? - Puga
Without the community the king would have nothing to live for, billy - Puga
They are being really stubborn considering almost nobody likes the new policy. - RalphBob
They are trying to keep the site a safe enviroment, it's quite obvious - darthvadernV 2 Comments
So if Admin did listen to us, then we would support the policy.
Well admin was listening to us now that he added a new user or post search feature to the site.
Admin just does whatever he wants. - zxm
Well probably because you didn't give any valid critisicm or because changing it would make the site a lesser safe enviroment - darthvadernV 1 Comment
What year did somebody said it was not okay? - FerrariDude64
In 2001 South Park showed Muhammad uncensored.
In 2011, due to death threats, Comedy Central censored him in a later episode. Does that sound unfair? It's a metaphor for TTT. - Puga
That's like saying reporting users used to be ok but not anymore. Your point is? - darthvadern
This site is about sharing opinions, well it WAS about sharing opinions. - EpicJake
Welcome to thetoptens, were we ban opinions and swearing - SpectralOwl
You're arguing over that you can't curse here even though it's completely pointless - darthvadern
I HATE censorship! Words are just words - Demon_KittyV 3 Comments
To be honest I'm not against or in favor it. I am neutral about the new policy. - cosmo
More than half of the site is against it! Even I'm against it. - EpicJake
Does not mean they're right for being agianst it - darthvadernV 2 Comments
The list wasn't even meant to be hurtful in the first place. It didn't really attack the users in anyway, and instead, just stated how they got too much praise.
I'm sorry, but I never saw a problem with that list. I don't believe anyone attached anyone. They just stated opinions.
I was being a little oversensitive about the list. I've learned that criticism is actually good for any users, so the list isn't so bad. - Garythesnail
Well probably because people were attacking users there - darthvadern
So I guess by someone remixing most overrated movies, they are attacking people then. - iliekpiezV 9 Comments
I really dislike how this detracts attention from those who deserve it. With some criticism, they would be fairly balanced. - PositronWildhawk
Oversensitive and immature creatures have been constantly breaking into this site in large numbers and have turned it into a wrecked Civilization, and the administration is not even worth talking about. - Vip3r
I can't name these babies because you guessed it, the policy! - Puga
Don't feed them, ignore them, it's as simple as that, feeding is the reason trolls have become way too prominent in the last few months - darthvadernV 6 Comments
I was gonna say something about the admins, but due to the new policy, they probably wouldn't accept it. - RalphBob
We should keep the petition up. Hopefully get the majority of the site on our side. - IronSabbathPriest
Sorry, but the petitions usually don't work. - MrCoolCV 4 Comments
I'm a victim of this atrocious behavior, but the difference is that I'm not scared. 95% of my indigestible honest opinions were wiped out without using even a fraction of grey matter in the head. - Vip3r
One of my posts was removed just because it had an uncensored f***. CURSE YOU ADMIN! - Powerfulgirl10
I censor so my stuff doesn't get removed - Demon_Kitty
Some of my comments got deleted...V 5 Comments
We lost a lot of good users all thanks to it - TwilightKitsune
We need users that can save thetoptens!
No, he's just doing his job - darthvadern
Why? - darthvadern
What? Why? - Goatworlds
That’s actually a good thing since it was bullying a lot of users.
This is the most relevant item in the list, and I strongly and evidently agree, with them having a prejudiced mindset. - Vip3r
The item name itself is bad but I don't know how to say it properly. Imagine if a crybaby Indie Dev who can't take criticism reports to admin for bullying, since the policy indicates that the content will be judged for what you said without context, it will be removed. Imagine that being applied to TheTopTens - YourWaifuSucks
Only if you decide to feed them - darthvadern
It was after Puga was suspended yet again, over user elimination games. I wrote a sarcastic letter about something involving his next move being removing DHMs on user ranking lists. For some reason, he actaully saw that as a legitimate suggestion. Fortunately, people asked to stop blaming me for it (Specifically, Element119) and reminded people that admin was the target for a long time, and there wasn't any signs of it cooling down - SpectralOwl
Criticism is allowed on the site, just not every form of criticism - darthvadern
