No one is better than each other

This is all about the pins from LBP2. The question is: are you better than anyone else if you can ace the Negativitron while others can't? The answer is: a big essay all about pins.
Just because you do one thing doesn't mean you are better than everyone else in general. Yeah, I'm proud of collecting all of the story pins, as well as the move pack pins and muppets pack pins, but I'm not very popular as creator. I only have 41 hearts, and most of them are friends or people I share opinions with. My Hall of Death level only has 17 hearts, 25 likes, and 72 unique players (as well as the 207 plays), and this is my only level. I got others coming in.
What about the secret pins? The one pin trolls value more than any other pin is the "Platinum Club" pin. Remember, just because you have the platinum club pin doesn't mean you're better than other people. Platinum trophy shows how superior you are in one game, but the platinum club pin isn't the pin that shows how good you are. It's the royalty pin. Royalty means you have great honor for LBP, like winning a contest or being part of the spotlight crew. Noobs want platinum club so they can prove they are better than everyone else, but they are actually inferior. Maybe they should stop giving out the platinum club pins to teach noobs a lesson. The Mm Picks pin also doesn't show how superior you are. It shows that you have been Mm picked or that you helped other people when they got Mm picked. When I get that pin, I won't put it up because other people are bragging about it.
Everyone has their own personal achivements. I made a PowerPoint about Math that exceeds 2,500 slides in 2 months (it's even valid). Also, when my house was about to catch on fire, I smelt the smoke and told my family that I smell something burning, and I was considered a hero. Another thing I did was making Halloween crafts for the girls when I was 16 years old, and they interviewed my on the school broadcasting system for my work. That's very good for me, but that doesn't make me the best at Little Big Planet. Steve_big_guns is the most epic creator of the community (he has nearly 100,000 hearts), but he doesn't have platinum yet. One of my friends got over 700 hearts as creator and 23,000 players on one of his levels, but he didn't hit royalty or get Mm Picked. Our administrator doesn't even have 500 hearts as creator or have over 1,000 unique players on any of his levels, but he runs a popular fansite, also known as LBP Central.
So who's the best person on LBP? Nobody. You can have more hearts as creator or have great sharing skills. You can have more plays, likes, and hearts on your levels than other people. You can play more community levels than others. You can even collect all of the prizes and ace all of the story levels. But which achievement is more important than others? The answer: Joining and playing Little Big Planet 2.
