Top Ten Reasons Why Admin Should Scrap the PolicyIt 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 Reasons Why Admin Should Scrap the Policy
Users can criticize each other easily on this site. Calling others words collected from the wide scale of vocabulary about digestion and sexual life isn't called criticism - Alkadikce
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
There is a big difference between telling the user what they could improve on in the future and blatantly attacking them. - 3DG20
Exactly. Constructive criticism helps users grow and learn from their mistakes.
That is why I don't want to say bad language on here too much. They don't have to be that sketchy.. - Katildalover93
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.
Well they are obviously overreacting and they can't lose their account unless they do something very much agianst the policy - darthvadern
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
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 trying to keep the site a safe enviroment, it's quite obvious - darthvadern
They are being really stubborn considering almost nobody likes the new policy. - RalphBob
Well probably because you didn't give any valid critisicm or because changing it would make the site a lesser safe enviroment - darthvadern
No, I actually did once send loads of feedback in a very calm manner, but he gave the reasons to why he wouldn't change the policy, which I can understand - darthvadern
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
That's like saying reporting users used to be ok but not anymore. Your point is? - darthvadern
What year did somebody said it was not okay? - FerrariDude64
So is everything that used to be legal okay? - Alkadikce
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
Most people were against Galilei so the Sun must go round the Earth - Alkadikce
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
And the opposite would allow rough tramps to shine in the spotlight - Alkadikce
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 - darthvadern
That doesn't mean hypersensitive babies should be on this site. - InfinateSuperstorm
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 really dislike how this detracts attention from those who deserve it. With some criticism, they would be fairly balanced. - PositronWildhawk
There is no need for swear words to invade the site. You can perfectly express yourself without them even if you are not native English - Alkadikce
Yeah. Sometimes I can say bad language, but not all the time. They need to understand. - Katildalover93
You're arguing over that you can't curse here even though it's completely pointless - darthvadern
This site is about sharing opinions, well it WAS about sharing opinions. - EpicJake
Here's admin logic:
Make a list about users that are praised a little bits too much=offensive
Make a (insert something here) fetish list or a list that only send death threats=family-friendly pg clean content. - MrCoolC
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
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
They're actually afraid of accounts being deleted - styLIShT
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
The more signatures, the more chance the policy will be scrapped. So keep BOTH petitions up. - EpicJake
Isn't the disrespecting of opinions already too big on this site? Do you want another 4chan? Let's check a bit abroad (i.e. the rest of the internet) to see how people treat each other there. And it's not about hypersensitivity. If you are saying that it's just words on the screen, then what you send is also words on the screen, so there is no use of offending others either. - Alkadikce
Criticism is allowed on the site, just not every form of criticism - darthvadern
*cought* *cough* Piplup *cough* *cough* - Hellohi
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
We lost a lot of good users all thanks to it - TwilightKitsune
We need users that can save thetoptens!
This is the most relevant item in the list, and I strongly and evidently agree, with them having a prejudiced mindset. - Vip3r
This is 100% true! - Userguy44
Example: my trash lists - Murphypaw
No, he's just doing his job - darthvadern
Yes he is! - Userguy44
Topics to choose from:
legalising of weed
legalising of LGBTQIA+ marriages
Anybody out there for a coffee with a small talk about these cute issues? - Alkadikce
I bet a troll put this here.
What? Why? - Goatworlds
Why? - darthvadern
Hm, that’s interesting. - Userguy44
As if kids won't find this site. - MrCoolC
The Worse TopTenners need to be removed were:
TopTen reason why everybody hate Wordgirl.
TopTen reason worse PBS Kids show.
and etc - Rawflesh0615
That’s actually a good thing since it was bullying a lot of users.
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
No we don't - styLIShT
While other, better users are being treated unfairly. - KalloFox34
