A hopefully helpful repost about how to get points! (Note: you get more points for being upvoted than for anything else.)

The points don't matter for real life (I doubt anyone will be on their deathbed regretting they didn't get more imgflip points etc.), but in the world of the site, they sort of do matter, at least a little.

People who are on the all-time leaderboard or the weekly leaderboard may generally have an easier time getting views on their memes than those who aren't yet on them - and we all want people to see our memes.

That's a good question, but I don't know when you stop getting points for upvoting memes.

When you create a meme stream,you get a checkbox that says:"Don't allow new users to post (must have 10,000 points and 30 days experience)",so I guess that's what makes an user new

What exactly is a memestream? And does the public see it?
reply

A meme stream is a homepage where people can post memes in a category you choose,and as far as I know,there's no way for anyone to see it unless you put a link to it in your tagline

That’s what my problem is! I can’t do links, (or figure out how to do them yet) on my IPhone...

Can you prove that I get 30 points for a comment upvote?
reply
2 ups
It's pretty easy to prove for yourself. Especially if you can open up different tabs in your computer. Here's how to do it. Find a user who's made a comment sometime in the last month that you haven't yet voted on (points don't count for votes on memes or comments more than a month old), open their profile in one tab, where their score is, and in another tab, open the meme with the comment on it.

Click upvote on the comment, go to the other tab, refresh the page, and you should see that their score has increased by 30 points. You can double-check by going back to the comment, removing your upvote, and then when you go back to the other tab and refresh the page again, the 30 points you added to their score should be removed. Then you'll know it was from your vote, not points they received coincidentally for something else at the same time.

(It works better if you try this on a user who doesn't have a meme on the front page currently, and who isn't currently on the weekly leaderboard. If they're possibly receiving other points while you're upvoting them, it will make it harder to be sure.)

Actually, now that I think about it, that proof only works if you assume the way to get points is the same for all users. I assume that's true but I don't know if you do, so I don't know if the proof I've provided is robust enough.

I always thought points were the same for everyone except new users.

The chart is correct to the best of my knowledge, and I believe it's applicable to all users (the only difference with new users as far as I know is the points for upvoting). I just can't prove it to the point of absolute certainty if the rules are different for different users (even though I have no reason to think that's the case).

The code would be too hard and unfair on the leaderboard.
