Top Ten Reasons Why Making a List Is Hard

DapperPickle
Yeah, I decided to make a list showing how hard it is to make lists.

The Top Ten

1 It's hard to think of an idea

Me in a nutshell. - RadioHead03

2 It seems like every idea has been taken

Says Captain Uncreative! There are always lists that haven't been made yet! - PositronWildhawk

3 You think of an idea but you can't think of ten things about it

Yeah. I have 2 lists in progress because I have no idea what to put for 2-10. I usually make lists because I know what to put for 1.

And then everyone gets pissed. - IronSabbathPriest

This happens a lot to me - Batmaniscole

I only do less if there is a limited abount of items I can have. If its like "best members of (insert band name here)" there may not even be ten anyway. - gemcloben

4 It's hard thinking of items for your list

But you might get it eventually. - DapperPickle

5 Admin might disapprove it
6 It might get merged

I was never quite the complainer of "all the ideas are taken" or "I can't think of items". This has always been my one fear. Mostly because its infuriating when I've put a lot of time into the list. - keycha1n

7 The "has your list already been submitted?" things doesn't work well

Yeah. My accepted list was an exact copy of a list which didn't come up on there.

8 It may take a long time to complete it
9 You might have to make changes before it is approved
10 Descriptions may be hard to make

I'm bad at making good descriptions. - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 Keeping track of how many community list submissions you have left when you don't want it to be self-moderated
12 It has to be creative

That's me in a nutshell. - Userguy44

13 The title has to make sense
