Top Ten Ways to Fail As a TheTopTens User

The Top Ten
1 Personally attacking other users

I only want to destroy the world. Not attack other users.

There is a huge difference between fair criticism and ad hominem. Using fair criticism means giving logical reasons to criticize a certain user on their position on a certain topic. Using ad hominems is simply just targeting and attacking the users simply for the sake of targeting them as a user rather than for their opinion on a subject.

Someone did that to me my first day joining. BUT I ALSO GOT 2 FOLLOWERS!

Ironic, barely anyone here hasn't done it.

2 Not accepting others' opinions

I've done this a couple of times myself, but I've learned on the top tens not everyone will like everything you do and if they don't like something you do that's okay.

I hope I'm not becoming another Disney1994 now... I'll try to be more open to people's opinions.

Yep yep yep accept


3 Making untrue lists

Lying is bad. Especially when your list is locked.

4 Trolling

I very much agree trolling is for a bunch of cry baby idiots I face a bunch of dumb trolls because of my spoked out comments which they are true and that happens in star legends THAT ENFURIATES ME THEY MADE MATTERS WORSE BY STUPID DANCING AND WAVING STAR LEGENDS IS CRAP I'M GLAD THAT I QUIT

Cough cough Barney the dinosaur rocks

Trolling is just plain dumb.

It can be funny sometimes...

5 Making incomplete lists

I don't like seeing incomplete lists - it makes me think the author doesn't know enough about the topic and this isn't good.
Proud to say I've never made a list with less than 10 items (I've made about 90 lists). I actually have one list with less than 10 items but it was because there were no 10 items. There are such cases - if the list is about the best albums by a music artist and he/she released only 4-5. But I'm not talking about similar exceptions.

Really I don't get how this is annoying or bad. Unless all your lists are like this.

I've only failed once or twice, now my lists are 10 entries all the time

Okay people. If you won't make ten items on a list, please go to TheTopEight.

6 Making dumb comments

Nobody likes you stupidity if it isn't funny.

This is the dumbest comment I've ever made. Lol

Making dumb comments? Like what...?

Making dumb comments...
I agere its stupid to see a comment with horribe grammar... Or comment, with lack of respect in topic of TheTopTens list. I calculated: the dumbiest TheTopTens comment is:
"You st00pid, I had good grammer" (on list about animals).

7 Trusting users to be honest
8 Asking people to follow back

"Please follow me back, I make random funny cancerous list that targets 7 year olds plus I use click bait titles too, PLEASE LOVE ME! "

9 Excessive swearing

Oh my! My mouth is dirty! Honey, where's the bleach? I want some!

It's ok to vent your curses onto one item, but if you have a dirty-mouth on everthing, it's time to clean your language up.

It's ok to curse and swear but not to much.

10 Bullying

It is better to destroy than bullying it's useless

I hate bullying, It is too bad.

The Contenders
11 Making lists on subjects you know nothing about

This is why I don't make lists in many different topics. If I try to make lists related to music, I would probably know nothing of the songs, albums, and singers that I am talking about. I like to make lists where I know about the topic at hand, especially when it comes to anime. But one thing I can do is try to make more video game lists. I like video games, so why not try that category out?

I think this is the worst and most annoying case. I hate seeing irrelevant and incorrect items - if you make a list about the best speed metal bands, don't put there A7X, Slayer or Arch Enemy, because they are not speed metal.
An incomplete list is only one of the signs the author doesn't know much about the topic.

It's the biggest problem I'm creating an any list. Sometimes, So, I don't publish many lists.

12 Act like a 6 year old

Then I am a 6 Year old Rocker xD

13 Putting two of the same item

I'm not kidding, in the Top 10 Worst Game developers, I saw Dean Hall twice and Rare twice.

For the list worst rappers,Lil Wayne was on there THREE time.

14 Make unusual lists
15 Making a list that is already on TheTopTens

What annoys me most about this is how people can get away with ripoffs, by wording them practically the same.

I made a list then some other guy makes the same list and my list is merged with his! The guy who stole my idea now owns the list

That's probably the reason why your able to remix lists.

Best non legendary Pokemon has so many bad Pokemon too high so I made best non legendary or non mega list from 1-7 so it doesn't get trolled or outdated

16 Being a hypocrite

There's something you need to know, all of us will be hypocrite in different circumstances.

Because nobody likes a hypocrite.


Hmmm... I really agree with Delgia2k here.

17 Making untrue comments

This reason is stupid.

Because if you want to defend something, don't go all out and lie.
You can make suggesting though.

Example,Mario is a food

18 Constantly talk about characters
19 Giving your account a stupid name

Something like RealNickiMinaj whereas there is no such thing as a "real" Nicki Minaj because she herself is fake.

20 Being immature with you profile bio

What you type into it can be seen be all, look respectable.

21 Making comments backed up with stupid reasons

This means your opinion does not deserve respect.

22 Making bandwagon lists about something

Bandwagoning on everything in general should be here and higher. It's a giant plague to the site which ironically is very, very common here.

What I mean was a your trying to make people quit liking whatsoever and filling it with offensive comments just to hurt and convince others to not like something. Thetoptens is not meant for hate at all. Keep it to yourself and don't be a bully.

Zootopia ring a bell?

23 Lying in the comments section

I dislike/hate it when people do this.
