Top Ten Reasons Why It's Hard to Be a New TopTenner


The Top Ten

1 Every List Seems to Have Been Created

I think I speak for many when I say this complaint shows lack of outside-the-box thinking. I understand how it can seem this way, but the second I think of all the lists that HAVEN'T been created, I almost get stressed and overwhelmed by the sheer amount of hilarious and unique options. - keycha1n

Yeah this is true when I first came it was super hard it took me a month to make my first list but later it starts getting easier to make list I'm always making list - speed

Just pick something random like "Top 10 most unusual things to do if the Teacher does not let you use the bathroom " - TwilightKitsune

Have you forgotten one of the unwritten and unspoken rules on TheTopTens? You don't give away list ideas - styLIShT

It's been like that since I joined almost 3 years ago (December 4th,2012) - Jake09

2 No One Knows You

To me, this was one of the best parts. I liked bringing something new back in the day whereas now, it's harder to impress the audience that have grown to predict my content. Well... Really I don't mind either way! - keycha1n

This list explain later me in a nutshell - toptenforlife

You suddenly appear but nobody knows you so you don't get looked at, you just got to try to subtly try to draw attention to yourself without looking like an attention seeker - DinoKea

Most people don't know me still :( - Matt92647

3 No One Looks at Your Lists

I looked at your list, I stated my opinion, and you messaged me with an overreaction. - Therandom

8 You Don't Get Followed

When I was a noob, the first time I looked at my profile, I had a follower. It was htoutlaws2012. I jumped up and down cause I JOINED 5 MINUTES AGO AND I GOT A FOLLOWER! I feel like when you first start, that's all you care about but then you realize that followers aren't the point. Quality and improving TheTopTens are. One you do those things, you will also get followers.

Wow, just wow. Has it not occurred to anyone else that this is basically the same as every other reason except you're changing the minor all means the exact same thing(almost) and there's not actually that many reasons on this list. Did they run out of ideas at number 2 and just start putting down the same thing over and over again and word it slightly differently every time? - mpgami

Yes and everything you just stated was true. But better a list with similar things on it than no list - jmepa1234

I got more than 10 followers within the first 2 days of Toptenning - TwilightKitsune

9 You End Up Creating Random Lists

In my tie as a new member, I created some real trash-worthy lists. It takes a while to get the hang of how to format a good, quality list. But you adapt quickly. - keycha1n

Random lists get more votes than unusual/different types of lists. - zxm

I do that
