Top 10 Things TopTenners Do When Trying to Seek Attention


The Top Ten

1 Say things that will make people angry

Like Oi love you mum - Nateawesomeness

2 Claim they are the best

I'm the best! I'm the best! I'm the best! Give me your undivided attention because I'm the best! While you're at it follow me and like my comment! Also add me to user-ranking lists!

Now isn't that annoying? - PianoQueen

No one can be the best, I'm not the best, but I'm not the worst. I don't care if I get more popular than Positron Wildhawk or get kicked in the dirt and forgotten in the sands of time. I'll still be the same old me - SirSkeletorThe3rd

This will surely get you attention, but not the kind you want. - Songsta41

Andre56... - Nateawesomeness

3 Call themselves overrated

Really? I would've said that people who want attention call themselves underrated! - Songsta41

What Songsta said - Nateawesomeness

4 Make fun of other users

*cough *cough* SpongeBobsuxx,by the way can someone get me some Medicane from the pharmacy - Nateawesomeness

5 Make unoriginal lists

Something 99% users do sadly - Leafeon

Or making a crowd of lists without caring about the quality just to see themselves at the newest lists page all the time. - Kiteretsunu

I'm gonna take a break from making lists for a while. I felt weird making more than one list in a row. - Chaotixhero

I've seen Animal jam rares, and animal jam items. - FennikenFan9

6 Hate good things

People do this a lot, but there's one particular member who demonised people for standing up to it. The site still bears the scars for long after he stopped. - PositronWildhawk

This item makes no sense. Everyone has a different opinion of what can be "good", so it makes no sense. And if there is a list of what is "good", then show it to me right now. This item is somewhat narcissistic. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Whe I make a list about why this or that game is bad, I did it for fun. I don't know why people are taking my Mario Galaxy list so seriously. I was only joking. But in my honest opinion, Super Mario Galaxy is enjoyable but it doesn't interest me. - Chaotixhero

The problem with this item is how the word "good" doesn't have a fixed definition.

7 Call themselves underrated

I used to think of saying this, but I never made a comment about it.

8 Obsess over the stats

I do this on the "Most Comments". I'm guilty of that.

Guilty - Nateawesomeness

9 Say they are somebody their not

Hi,I'm Bernie sanders,cereal now costs more then chairs - Nateawesomeness

10 Claim somebody hacked their account

The word "claim" is a huge accusation and assumption that a particular member is lying purely to seek attention. I myself haven't had my account hacked (no one would ever guess my password) but some members do genuinely have their accounts hacked and they turn to other members because it's distressing. I can't imagine any member doing this Just for attention. It would be pretty warped if they did... - Britgirl


That's a very easy way to get sympathy and attention on the site. - Songsta41

The Contenders

11 Make comments and remixes

I post tons of comments but I don't do it to try to get attention. I just do it for the enjoyment of it! - RiverClanRocks

They do this in the hopes that someone will see their profile underneath the comment and click on it so they can get someone else on their profile page. - Songsta41

I make more than 15 remixes a day and and I post a lot of comments but not for attention. - cosmo

I post comments to be funny and because I want to - SirSkeletorThe3rd

12 Add "Justin Bieber" to every list

I didn't seek attention for doing that! But I got some bragging rights!

Seriously. This joke never was funny in the first place. Am I right? - Jonerman

13 Call themselves stupid

I really am stupid, I'll admit that. I just don't like it when Rainbow Dash fans call me it. - TwilightKitsune

Then treat them like they're stupid. No need to personally attack them, though.

I just call myself stupid as a joke. - MontyPython

But I really AM! Ask my alter ego, he knows! - Britgirl

14 Ask people to vote on their lists

I don't really see anything bad with promoting your own content if you do it properly.

The same happens in the case of posts too. - Kiteretsunu

All the time. Ugh. I'm tired of this - AnonymousChick

I hate this. - RiverClanRocks

15 Create a hoax story
16 Obsess wildly over their favorite characters

Or their favorite anything, for that matter. - xandermartin98

And there is a user who obsesses over a pornstar!

For me, it's Cilan, for you, XM98, it's Rocko's Modern Life. - RiverClanRocks

17 Beg for followers

There are even cases where people might put this as their username

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE FOLLOW ME? I'll follow you back. Please? I'll vote on your lists! Now isn't that annoying? Oh yeah like my comment! - PianoQueen

The "follow me, follow back" policy of certain users is a nonsense way of getting followers. It defeats the purpose of following which is to be notified of the activity of users you like and admire.

I'd rather get followers by my hard work than gain sympathy by other users.

Fun list Monty, but I HAD to vote for this one! - Billyv

Trust me, I tried this once. Didn't do anything!

But this is actually a good way. - RalphBob

22 Add their name to every user ranking list
23 Leave for 5 months then come back and tell everyone you're back

I left for 3 days because I was on vacation.

Sounds pretty familar - codydoestuff

24 Obsess over popular TopTenners

Cough, cough "TopTenners who should date Britgirl" Cough, cough. - FennikenFan9

I don't believe in that stuff. I'll still hate you the same, like you the same, and treat you the same. But I admit that I like less popular TopTenners better than popular TopTenners. They just seem more…fun. Not that I'm calling myself popular, but still… - BlueTopazIceVanilla
