Top Ten Things We Want to See in Gen 19 TopTenners

SpectralOwl
{ ATTENTION TO THE FUTURE GENERATION 19 USERS OF THETOPTENS }.

As this list was created, we are halfway through Gen 18. While this was better than gen 17 in quite a few ways, it could be better. So let us see what we want generation nineteen of TheTopTens to have as qualities.

The Top Ten

1 Creativity Creativity

I think there are too many lists about anime, music, and cartoons being made currently, Thetoptens is full of complaints about no ideas for lists anymore. Here is my tip, I find list ideas unintentionally by looking up things I want to find for something interesting or a good laugh, and if I can't find one, I make it myself. That is what the future Toptenners should do as well. Is - SpectralOwl

Just because I'm a sports users doesn't mean I'm not creative. I've received some criticism over just wanting to make those list. Like this very list later states, you have to respect others opinions. And I like to make sports lists because it's a thing I care about and actually enjoy doing. - SirSheep

Creativity was the key that unlocked humanity's success, and it shall continue to be that way. - Cyri

We luckily got some very creative users so far in Gen-19, Cyri and Ashes are among the most creative users on here so far - darthvadern

2 Respect of opinions Respect of opinions

Obviously, some bad toptenners are notorious for bashing on opinions. This will improve the toptens if you can respect opinions. Remember, if everyone thought the same, the world would be quite boring. So let people be unique on this place. - SpectralOwl

This is important. I known a lot of fans online who bully other people for having a different opinion and its just not right. I think respecting opinions is very important and should be more common in gen-19

Well so far I've had no problems regarding opinions, whether they're my own or someone else's. I've seen some users disrespect other users opinions though. - SirSheep

Happened for the most part - darthvadern

3 Acknowledging the difference between criticism and insulting Acknowledging the difference between criticism and insulting

The policy is heavily complained about due to not recognizing the sheer difference between criticism and straight up bullying for the pleasure of it. Know the difference so Thetoptens will improve. I may have used to deny the existence of constructive criticism, but I did mature eventually, and over sensitivity is not going to make it easy in the long run. - SpectralOwl

There are two meanings of criticism: one is bullying and just being a jerk for the sake of it whilst criticism is just telling off or giving advice to help improve as a user. Overreacting to it ain't going to help at all and makes you look like a SJW crybaby. I may have been easily offended by it on my old account, because I didn't know what it was at first, but now I realised that there are two meanings and if you get offended by a rustler, do NOT feed them. Just take the criticism you get and use it to help improve as a user.

Because calling someone else's work "cancerous" is "criticism" - 445956

As a Gen-19 user, I can say that I know the difference. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

4 Not begging for attention Not begging for attention

I am not getting a lot of attention but who cares about that? Whatever you do future toptenners, do not give up with this website even if you are unpopular. Just continue being you and you could even have the potential to become a great user

Especially do not retire because you are not popular. Do not give up, even if that is a overused cliche advice piece. You will be noticed eventually. - SpectralOwl

That used to be me when I first joined, but now I am working hard

Happened luckily - darthvadern

5 Less cyber bullying Less cyber bullying

Nobody should be bullied at all. In my opinion, bullying should be a crime because nobody I mean NOBODY like bullying! I hope gen-19 doesn't have any bullies at all

Obviously, No one likes cyberbullying. NO ONE. If you know the difference between this and criticism, that is great. Use this knowledge if you would like to be a good Generation 19 users - SpectralOwl

As a Gen-19 user, it is my goal to never bully anyone.

Well Owl may have a point, the grey area for you mila is imagine putting in content during July than you did in May when you joined. Than maybe there is a great debate you are gen 19, but yes of different circumstances. - htoutlaws2012

Yeah we have "Nice" users instead.. - iliekpiez

6 Maturity

I am not trying to be ageist, but We have quite a few people on Thetoptens posing as they are age 13, when they are around 11 or 10. We consequently have lists like "Top Ten Users of Thetoptens with the stinkiest farts" on this site. many of us can agree that we do not want Immature lists and posts like this in the future - SpectralOwl

I don't want to brag but I would say I am quite mature for a 12 year old. - DarkBoi-X

I do agree, you are quite intelligent and mature. I am mature for a 13-year old. - Raccoon234

Not happened thus far with this gen - iliekpiez

I try to be as mature as possible. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

7 A lack of trolling A lack of trolling

I question the sanity of people who thirst the response messages of CAPS LOCK all over. Do not feed the trolls. Do not feed them. - SpectralOwl

I absolutely agree with this one. I cannot stand trolls but I wouldn't feed them if I were you. Because if you do feed them you will just make them do it even worse.

No! Correction: more trolling! Trolls are funny and it is your problem if you feed them. - Userguy44

You know how the popular saying goes: Don’t feed the trolls. - Raccoon234

8 No bandwagoning No bandwagoning

As soon as more respect of opinions become present, so will be a bigger lack of bandwagoning. So what if you have an unpopular opinion? That is what makes you a unique person! - SpectralOwl

God, I have so many unpopular opinions and I can't believe I used to bandwagon on my old account. Just because someone has an unpopular opinion doesn't mean they are bad

This is why I usually listen to a song, or at least look at the lyrics, before saying anything about it. - allamassal

What is bandwagoning anyway? - Raccoon234

9 No negativity for the sake of it

I can understand why some people are depressed when on this site, but when they make all sorts of worst lists and have not even considered making a positive list, then it can get out of hand - SpectralOwl

Just being negative and suicidal for the sake of it isn't really a good thing at all and just doing negative lists for the sake of it can get out of hand

I can't help it! I'm a negative person! - Ashes

Not happened - iliekpiez

10 Choosing quality over quantity Choosing quality over quantity

I get annoyed when I see countless lists and they have 10 items or under, no description, and no comments to show why this was chosen. If you have a small amount of list ideas, at least make as much as you can to have a lot of quality so you have a chance of you list being featured. - SpectralOwl

This makes me think I should start adding more description to my list, because I admit they sometimes just look like a bunch of items. - MaxAurelius

Yeah I used to do quantity over quality when I first started in the hope that one of those list become popular and some of them did, but you get even more benefit when you put effort into the list. It really works, because just recently I had 2 list in the same week make the featured list and that of course gets you more comments on your lists. - 2storm

Currently the opposite is every creatures motto here. Look at how fast and mindlessly they churn out lists for the sake of votes and popularity. Not a gram of grey matter is used, when deciding to do something. - Vip3r

11 Not deleting your account/ retiring because you’re not popular

Look if you’re going to make an account you have to have dedication. You’re not going to be popular overnight. And don’t retire because other users retire - Randomator
