Top Ten Worst List Trends On TheTopTens

Trends are sometimes good things. More often than not, they are bad.

The Top Ten

1 Ridiculous comparison lists

"Why do you all hate my list! I could've said Ebola was better" - Guess Who - Puga

They bring some humor to the site, in different ways!

Can't these types of lists die in a fire already?

Well, If I was an admin and I saw a list like “Why The Simpsons is better than Justin Bieber,” I would reject it. - JoeBoi

2 Reasons why ("nice" and "awesome" user) is better than (celebrity)

These lists are made by those who can't put their brains together for making better lists. Lists made only for the sake of making them. - Kiteretsunu

It creates a positive vibe on users, especially on the most controversial ones!

I had a good intent with these (I started the users being better than celebrities thing) but things didn't go as planned. (See comments below) - RiverClanRocks

uh huh - iliekpiez

3 Ridiculous user ranking lists

Top Ten Users of TheTopTens With the Stinkiest Farts. If you hate it so much then remove yourself from it, no one's forcing you to participate. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I don't think there are many ridiculous user ranking lists. Only user ranking lists which are poorly made. - Kiteretsunu

Best male user who were online on the 11th of July 2015 at 9:43 AM who's username begins with a "G" and has the colour black in their profile picture. One I can top! - gemcloben

Hmm... Well, not exactly. I'd say "Users who should watch..." are the most ridiculous ones at present. The one Gem is talking about hasn't been yet functional. - Kiteretsunu

oh - iliekpiez

4 Reasons why you shouldn't take/touch user's food

Cereal guy's was original: It was "reasons to take epic Jake's burgers." - Therandom

I only made mine for fun. - EpicJake

Positron's was first and PetSounds' was original, but all the others are just rip-offs. - Puga

I don’t get why you would do this.

5 Best user of the month lists

I'm so bloody sick of these. They're ALWAYS made at the start of the month, the ten items are ALWAYS the creator's friend, and the person first is ALWAYS first because they're nice. - Puga

I fully support all but the last, and I believe the last should play a role, yes, but quality and kindness work in tandem to make a user truly great. - Cyri

It could be good when the basis of choosing which users are the best is pretty accurate. And who makes such a list on a month that just started?

They're always made at the start of the month for some reason. At least when I made my list Best Users of August 2014 I actually made it at the end of the month. - EpicJake

In fairness should be at the end of the month - iliekpiez

6 Top ten interesting facts about me

I advise NONE of you to look at my interesting facts list... Oh how I regret it... - Turkeyasylum

I often wonder, who first started this trend? - Kiteretsunu

I did make one, but it was one of my first lists. - Therandom

Not interesting though is it - iliekpiez

7 Reasons to hate/not hate/love/like (Insert TV show or music artist)

"Leave Brittany Alone! " - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

8 Reasons (insert "nice" and "awesome" user) is a good user

Nothing wrong with them - darthvadern

It’s fine As long as you don’t ask someone else to make one for you - Randomator

oh yeahh - iliekpiez

9 Best songs from (album)

I do these lists a lot. But I make sure to listen to the entire album before making the lists, and judge which songs are truly the best from that album. Some of the others who do these kinds of lists should do that as well, not all of them do. - NuMetalManiak

These aren't bad ideas for lists themselves (I have done a fair few), but very little thought goes into many of them. - PositronWildhawk

It isn't bad. Many of these lists have really helped with my playlist. - Kiteretsunu

I think that these lists are fine, they are good for introducing people to new music, and are somewhat interesting if done well. - kempokid

10 Top ten best lists by me

I tried to do one but it failed. Now, I want someone else who really likes my lists enough to make that list. I also want someone who really hates my lists to make a list about that. It sounds weird to want a hate list, but maybe if people complain about my lists then people will check out how 'bad" they are. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I don't think I'll ever make this. Maybe I'll make a list of best blog posts by me, since I blog more.

I made one of these lists, and trust me, I think it's one of my worst. - Turkeyasylum

Little bit self centered - iliekpiez

11 Worst singers of (year post-2013)

All the items will be filled with people who were irrelevant in 2010. - Puga

This list is where Justin Bieber shouldn't be in.

We all know JB, Miley Cirus, and 1D are going to be at the top. You already forsee the future so I usually avoid these lists. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

12 Reasons (hated list) is inaccurate

Better make a blog post about it instead.

We already know you hate it. Stop trying to get some easy fame by pronouncing what is already known. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I tried making a list like this. I failed badly.

13 Reasons (insert user here) is retiring

They're good, especially since you know the user will retire then, and they'll just not randomly disappear - darthvadern

I'm so bloody sick of this retiring stuff. Either people are losing interest into TTT, or they just feel like it. If one more user retires, I won't give a damn. - EpicJake

Just make a damn post.

That’s attention seeking 101 right there - Randomator

14 Reasons why this list was made with (4-9) items

Four words: so annoying.

And just by the way, the extra two words were for "Four words" - AnonymousChick

One user made a list about 9 times, and it was fine, because that signifies originality. Now others making ripoffs using other numbers in place of 9 is just annoying. - Kiteretsunu

I didn't even find the original one funny. - gemcloben

I'm pretty sure that DapperPickle made the first one, and now there's multiple lists relating to it. The others are just rip-offs. - Minecraftcrazy530
