    i keep hearing about how bad blinks are,but are they really that bad? Please tell me if you've had good or bad experiences with them! I personally love Blackpink but I have seen some hateful blinks.

    From what I've heard they have fallen out with ARMY,Moo moo's,Blackjacks,Exo-L's(what I am),reveluvs,and buddies,Once's,am I missing anyone out? I just want to know why they are toxic and why they have such a bad reputation.

    All fandoms are toxic generally but honestly idk, I've encountered lovely blinks and at the same time, some real nasty ones. Here on the forum, most are nice
    I'm a Blink myself, I know I'm not toxic :D

    This basically. Any group that gets popular are pretty much guaranteed to gain fans who are loud and rude and therefore give the fandom a bad name. So yeah I guess they're bad but so are other fandoms, none of the fandoms of the top groups really get along tbh.

    I haven't heard much about them getting into fights with other fandoms (but I'm too out of the loop to follow these things and it's not rare for big fandoms to butt heads so I wouldn't be necessarily surprised) but what I've seen that fandom criticized on is more that there seems to be a lot of fans of individual members only so there might be a lack of cohesitivity to their fandom. All big fandoms are bound to have messy elements.

    You're bound to get both bad and good fans right? Some fans give the fandom a bad name but people should also remember there are good fans out there. I seriously feel ashamed when I see negative fans within my fandom but it can't be prevented so the best thing to do is focus on the good side of the fandom in my opinion

    I think YG should give them official titles(I'm not too sure if he has but as far as I know he hasn't)

    Of course there's good fans, but the rude ones are really loud and make the good fans easy to forget.

    I'm sure there are lots of good ones,but everyone keeps on telling me they set up hate projects and all this stuff but I'm not sure if it's just Chinese whispers. I'm just seeing if people were telling the truth really. It is true though there are bound to be a few rotten eggs on all fandoms.

    Black Pink is my number 2 Group but I’m not at all a YG fan. I think that’s at the difference YG Stan’s can be just like normal kpop fans who honestly care v much about charts and song performance, but then some get extremely competitive that their fav is everyone’s fav and the most popular and suddenly they know what the whole world likes just because a song does moderately well. But those people “don’t care” about charts or sales... sure Jan.

    Back then I didn't know which idol group Blinks came from, but I've already admired this fandom for being friendly and gracious. They are not toxic at all in my experience. There was a time when I helped stream SNSD's YT views (lol, a first for me) and Blinks were all over the comment section supporting us. We even have a combined fandom with then, Blones, dyaraaaan! ;):excitedr:

    Well of course, this doesn't mean ALL. Every single fandom has those crazy, shitty ones. Even from my beloved Sone fandom, some are downright crappy. Take for example WS. (Dunno if I should even consider him a sone, lol)

    Fair enough, the nasty Blinks are known to overshadow the good ones
    That's the worst thing about a large fandom, the negative fans always get noticed. I hope people know there are good blinks out there :D Like me

    Honestly I think the worst blinks are around on Twitter or other social media, not so much on this forum. But I don't know, I just talk to the good fans and block the annoying ones~

    It's stupid to say they don't care about charts or sales,they make or break a group honestly.
