  • Why do so many poorly written creepypastas show up? Who's writing them, and for what reason? I'm absolutely baffled as to why bad creepypasta keeps getting made. Any thoughts?

    • My guess is mostly younger users who haven't developed proper writing skills and ignore the rules regarding quality standards.

    • That's the other thing, what would cause younger users to write overly cliche'd / hyper-realisticly bloody creepypastas? What is it about creepypasta that they find so appealing to them?

    • Lack of creativity probably. I'm assuming most of them see a pasta they enjoy and decide to do a remake, altering it to be about themselves, their OCs, or in the case of lost episode and video game pastas, their favorite shows and games.

    • So what that sounds like to me is that people take a story and make it a self-insert. That sounds kinda narcissistic, I guess now I know how Sonic.exe was made.

      If you think that is narcissistic, you should see how they react when said stories get deleted. They'll actually send messages to the admins cursing them out and act like they're too good for this site.

    • Oh yeah, I remember that one where JC the Hyena was pissed that Sonic.exe got deleted.

    • A lot of them also get angry when anyone tries to give constructive criticism, not matter how helpful the advice, or how softly the critics put it.

    • During the Winter school break, many kids were so bored they tried their hand at creepypastas. Hopefully, the trend will level off for a few months.

      It's very frustrating when you try to help them and they get so defensive and angry.

      I got one of these just a few minutes after you posted this XD

      The sad fact is they don't want to take criticism. They want to be told a story they put no effort into is a masterpiece.

    • I revisited the JC the Hyena fanon wikia page, and remembering the obvious mary-sue that he is, but I could probably beat him with Ultra Instinct anyways.

    • People like the concept of CPs and they want to come up with something too... usually first tries are bad for everyone so...

      The ironic part is they don't come up with anything, they rip other people off.
