Top Ten Signs You're a Stat Padder

What is a stat padder you may ask? It's someone who is on thetoptens but heavily prioritizes the Quantity over the quality.

The Top Ten Signs You're a Stat Padder

You have more lists than followers

Well, I'm not expecting to be followed by 400+ people. That won't stop me from including lists that might help increase the site's contents. - Undistinguished

Or maybe you're just criminally underrated - styLIShT

This does apply to me, but if you have over 400 lists but only 33 followers, it becomes a real problem - SpectralOwl

Well at the moment 484 lists and 262 followers, I guess that's a big gap - darthvadern

You message lots of users a link to your list

This is not a good thing to do. You don't wanna shove your content down others throats - styLIShT

Rarely do unless I feel like I need feedback instantly - darthvadern

I've expirienced this once, I had no idea who the music artist was, that the list revolved around - SpectralOwl

You don't care about the community.

Well, I am heavily involved in the community, yet I am a heavy list maker - darthvadern

This is a grey area here. Some people say "oh, the best users don't care about popularity" However, the people not involved in the community at all, I say is Boring - SpectralOwl

This item seems like it’s vaguely said. How does not being connected in community have a relation to stat padding? Also there are also users that constantly put quality detailed content in the table while not being involved in the community. What would you say about that - Leafeon

You've never had a featured list

Especially if you've been on here for two or three years. Luckily for me, I already got a featured list in less than a year. - SpectralOwl

I really want to get a list featured man - styLIShT

Got 8 - iliekpiez

I never had a featured list because my lists are not good.

You have lots of posts, but no HQ ones

Self Explanatory - SpectralOwl

Obviously - iliekpiez

Still, you can make low-tier HQ posts for stat padding - styLIShT

Well, as of December 18th 2018, I have a total of 24 posts, and 9 are high-quality (originally 10 but one got hacked) - darthvadern

You make lists that have no comments or visitors

I make a variety of lists. Some gain loads of votes, some do not. But all of them seem to gain at least one or two comments - darthvadern

Ah, yes. I find amazing and great ideas for lists I can make, only to find out someone already made a list about it, and it is a boring plain one. What I mean is if you add no comments to share why you added it. - SpectralOwl

You have no list ideas that aren't overly specific

No one really cares about say, if someone were to make a list of "Top ten Cities in Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana that have a population of over 200,000 and have more than 3 libraries". You get the whole idea. If your lists are like that, You clearly have ran out. - SpectralOwl

Some of my lists are a little specific, I suppose,but not overly specific - darthvadern

You have twice the amount of userscore than the amount of followers

I have more than that. I have six times more member score. It's up at 1400, while I only have around 260 followers - darthvadern

I can see if you have a little more than the amount of followers you have, but when it is two or three times, it's not so interesting - SpectralOwl

Is it bad if you have 153 followers and your member score is 329? I promise I try to be a good user, it just doesn't work!

I think that would be the majority of users including me. - Powell

You make copy lists

I don't - darthvadern

Like Sausagelover's list of Movies that don't deserve to be on the list of Worst movies of all time. It's already been made, but only approved because it was titled differently. Trying to attempt this deliberately will have you be considered as a stat padder - SpectralOwl

Its impossible to plagiarize a list, or are you talking about remixes? - Oliversky

No one feels in the mood for messaging you

Then I get time to work on my post series!

I get messages almost everyday - darthvadern

This may seem cruel, but Stat padders that don't care less about the community, likely won't give Fellow top tenners the motivation to message. - SpectralOwl

Well, I get messages a lot though. ~ Userguy44

The Contenders

You make letter lists

I made the interesting countries that begin on a certain letter series but it wasn't really much for stat-padding though, I only made them because I love comparing countries - darthvadern

I just despise those wastes of lists.

You make a list about stat padding

Oh, the irony! - Misfire

Then I Guess We Half To Say You Are - Oliversky

You accuse others of stat padding

I do not - darthvadern

You make lots of lists

Obviously - darthvadern

only 85 - Oliversky
