How To Be Cool On Sputnik

A 10 step program to becoming cool on Sputnik. Follow this list and results are guaranteed.
1Have a Good Username
Step 1

And no, xXxJaneDoe66xXx is NOT a good username. Neither is Prophet178, I would know. Don't name yourself after your favorite band, lyrics from your favorite band, or track titles from your favorite album. Everyone will think you're a fanboy (which you probably are) and you will never be cool. If your username really sucks, get it changed. Just look at bloc01 and the_wizard, before they became bloc and wizard they were super fags.
2Be a Dick
Step 2

You ever wonder why guys like qwe and rasputin always get mentioned on lists? It's cause they're dicks. This is the first step in becoming cool on Sptunik. Start out by picking on new users that comment on popular albums by telling them they are wrong then telling them to leave the site forever, or making bold claims that can be backed up if someone calls you out. DON'T BE A TROLL. That will ultimately turn out for the worse in the end, with people labeling you as a troll and not taking you seriously ever.
3Have Good Taste
Step 3

Now heres the hard part. No matter how much you like pop and hip-hop don't tell anyone. Go into Electric City's ratings and copy all his 4 and 5 ratings, then go into Knott- and AtavanHalen's ratings and copy their 4 and 5 ratings but make them 1's and 2's. Now you have the perfect Sputnik taste. If you want, you can become a specialist too, but that requires more work. In order to become a specialist you would have to devote all your music listening to one genre and become "that guy," who knows everything about the genre. Just look at SlightlyEpic and Planewreck for examples.
4Make Lists
Step 4

Not lists about how your girlfriend dumped you or how you like auto-erotic aphysication. The first list you should make is a top 10 best albums (not favorite; best) consisting of Jane Doe, Godspeed, Aeroplane, TDAGARIM, Blackwater Park, and 5 other Sputnik albums of your choice. Leave deions like "I didn't get it at first, but now I love it!" or "I liked Opeth before I came here, js" to give yourself some street cred. After establishing yourself as someone with good taste, you can begin making dig lists of obscure albums no one has heard before and lists bashing other users.
5Review Stuff
Step 5

Even if your writing is worse than Cirq write some reviews. Start off by giving OK Computer another 5 review then move on to others. Whatever you do don't write a troll review for a popular Sputnik album. You'll turn out like fireaboveicebelow and get run off the site. Once you've established yourself as a writer (shitty or not) write a joke review. Give Backstreet Boys - Millenium a 5 and just write about hair styles and clothes.
6Get a Good Profile Pic and Avatar
Step 6

Make it something funny or strange. Absolutely don't use a picture of yourself, even if its a picture of you sucking Mikeal Akerfeldt's dick. Nothing screams I'm a loser like using a picture of yourself, just look at foxxxy's profile. Your avatar can either be an underrated album around Sptunik that you want to rep hard, or something so nonsensical that it works. Take for example any of Meatplow's avatars.
7Reach 1000 Comments
Step 7

You're pretty much a nobody until you reach the big 1K. A majority of your comments should come from making fun of other users on album threads and lists, but a few helpful posts here and there won't hurt. Once you reach 1,000 comments don't make a list about it. Just brush it off like its no big deal but in your head think about how much better you are than everyone else. When you see someone with 100 comments saying something like "Good review" say "You would think its a good reivew, fag" then never check the thread again.
8Don't Use the Forums
Step 8

Seriously, anyone with a penis wouldn't be caught dead posting on the forums. Take any chance you get to bash the forums and take pride in your 0 post count in your profile.
9Don't Try to Become a News Mod
Step 9

Even though a big avatar is the best way to show off your gigantic sputdick, it will never happen. Just look at me.
