I'm not either, although on the slower days I have been tempted to repost some of my older stuff that I felt just didn't get enough views the 1st time. I haven't as yet though.

reposting your own stuff doesn't bother me. what gets me is when people take a post they see on another website and post it here...

That's a hard call, especially when the odds are most here may have not seen it, but would enjoy it. I would give credit but that's how I am.

I have some of the first ones I made that didn't get any traffic I have been wanting to repost as well. I also have one that never got featured I wanted to try again but I figured if it didn't make it through the first time they probably won't feature it the second...

Reposting something you made yourself is different. If you see something(a joke or funny image/gif) someone else made/created and post that, that's the kind of reposting I hate.

And using a meme template to make a new joke or point something out is different. You had to write something original usually. :{

We need a "Not another Repost" meme template. Like a kid or a funny character. I'd use it.

I'm gonna give that some thought. .. "not another repost"... would be cool! I like this meme though bro... you nailed the trolling comments ! YOU are still the best commenter on threads where there is a challenge! This meme kicked ass!

Thanks man. The skeptical meme was sort of a tangent. Maybe Not Another Repost could be made with Not Another Teen Movie pics? Rollin' it around a bit. But have like stereotyped meme reposts that are often used but vague enough to apply to certain types of that meme. I don't know. An interesting thought. :{

A troll face would be a cool touch,.. but the original idea is good. But you're talking toguy who started creating memes a year after I got on the site,.. lol. I used all generic templates,... maybe 6 or so. Ha,... its a wonder I got past the 20K mark!

Between some family issues and just same ol political bullshit, I haven't gotten any new material for awhile. And again, 90% of my memes are for Facebook friends and the like. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate joking with everyone on here but between the down time I have for myself, Facebook, gaming, imgflip, weekly shows, and sports all take a huge chunk of my time for me to just be on only imgflip. Why my jokes are usually by personal experience and don't relate to the kiddies on here. Ha!... Then I see some of my friends repeat the same jokes or tell the joke they heard that I've also heard to another friend, which is like a real life repost. But I think I'm going to see some old memes of mine, resubmit them if I feel like they deserve another shot.

I hear ya man, it can really be tough day after day. Most mornings I'm up at 4:30 and trying to keep my eyes and ears open for the humor out there. Having been sick the last couple weeks has made it more difficult but I still try. You do great stuff, so often I go to comment on it, and the meme has already said anything I could, so I upvote it and feel a little guilty for missing a chance to comment, but that really is the truth. We'll take what we can from ya buddy when you are able! :)

Memes don't belong to anyone. In my opinion, reposts are fine, only if they're older memes that a user wants to revive.
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
I never said that meme's ownership was in question.

But I am definitely saying that stealing jokes is a lack of creativity. And most reposts are really just outright plagiarism. Not that any legal involvement is needed. Just, people need to learn how to be more creative.

And if a user revives their own memes in a repost, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm taking about someone using another person's joke or creativity to SEEM creative themselves. That's just the lamest shit ever. :{

Just don't use stuff other people did or you just saw online. Create.

If you happened to come up with something that's been done before that's different. It just means you're on the same page as them in thought.

And just write stuff that makes you laugh out loud for real. :{

My complaint is a lack of creativity though, not a lack of original memes.

There are plenty of original memes.

I'm pointing out that people lately are just reposting shit they saw online. And the FP is loaded with memes that are just reposts. :{

No. It's like I said. You're just being a contrarian and rattling on.

And you're just reiterating my point for me?

But for the record, truth is rigid, not subjective. People do lie to themselves and give truth a perspective, but that's just their opinions and beliefs of what happened. Truth is just what really happened. :{

OMFG! The troll card? Seriously? You're arguing with me on my meme, and I'm the troll?

How did you ever prove anything? Or even prove me wrong? The users like you droppin' troll cards at the drop of a hat always try and claim they proved something. You never did.

And this: "If you really think there is creativity in someone who posts non-original content, prove it. Give us an example of non-original content that is creative. Link it. Provide a single shred of evidence of how it is creative."

I never said that or anything that means that. That's all you. What's the point in all that BS?

You only say rambling on because I said you have been rattling on. lol

"Guess it really is how one looks at it." Truth is rigid. Are you so thick that you couldn't link those two thoughts? Pointless huh? I guess if you misunderstood the comment.

"Oh and how come you never addressed my points about original content being ignored majority of the time here?"

Do you even read comments? I said there are plenty of original memes. That was addressing your comment. You sure are looking really foolish at this point.

But I also pointed out that my meme isn't about the good ignored content. Why are you arguing the point of my meme so badly?

"Or the fact that your complaining about uncreative material being posted is being uncreative yourself."

How? I'm stating my original opinion. I'm creating a meme with my humor about a specific topic.

It might sound similar to others that have complained about the lack of creativity, but it's not a repost, and it is creative. :{

Y U no comprehend simple english? Mr Tetsuoswrath is perfectly correct creativity and originality are not mutually inclusive. Most of my stuff is original, where it isn't I give acknowledgement, but it is not very creative. I think I should make the FP with every submission but I don't because I'm just not good enough. That's the point - I keep submitting for my enjoyment and you never know one day other people may enjoy it too.

Nailed it!!!!!!!!!!! Post it for yourself,.... if other identify with it,.. great! We are entertaining ourselves and when other enjoy it with upvotes and comments,... thats great. There is a variety of users with their sense of humor,... no one meme will appeal to everyone. good comment brother!

You just keep copying things I just said/that you're responding to. lol

"If it is the same opinions that other people have posted, by definition it is not original."

How wrong you are.

If I come to my conclusion separate from you coming to yours but they're the same, it doesn't mean our ideas are unoriginal. It means we think the same.

Original content is not just something no one has ever posted. By you're logic, it would mean using a popular template is unoriginal.

Original = created directly and personally by a particular artist; not a copy or imitation. So my meme is original. I didn't copy anyone else or imitate another meme.

I don't have to explain anything to you dude, you're the one with the problem. The burden of proof falls on your inability to process logic and reason.

"You stated that non-original content is the product of creativity."

Bullshit. Quote me on that. Because you're currently misquoting me/misinterpreting my comment to make your argument.

I said that unoriginal memes are the product of a lack of creativity. YOU should try actually reading the comments and not just getting in a tizzy over me being right.

"I have proven you wrong in that non-original content and uncreative content is the same thing. You are just too stupid and blind to see that because you are incapable of admitting when you are wrong."

Again, bullshit. When? They aren't the same thing. You're conflating their respective definitions to suit your flawed agenda. That's it.

I actually admit when I'm wrong, the only one incapable of it is you. Keep proving me right by denying it.

"I said ramble on because that is all you do, not because you said rattling. Get over yourself. You don't know everything. You barely know anything about the things you claim to know."

Nah, you are obviously a mimic. You've done it on many things so far in your comments.

The fact that you think I think I know everything reveals your inferiority complex.

And what do I claim to know? I'd love to hear that round of assumptions.

"Stating that there is original content is not addressing the fact that the majority of actual original content is ignored, which is why you see do many reposts and unoriginal content on the front page."

Actually it is. That was my address to your comment. Which you can't define for me. Only I can tell you what i was and wasn't addressing in my comments kid.

Now on to your other bullshit comment and flawed argument. :{

"Say whatever you want at this point, I really don't care. You have already proven that you are incapable of admitting you were wrong, which is 95% of what trolls do anyways. I am done with you BS. You can't admit that this memd is not creative, just keep telling yourself whatever you need to hear. I know that I am right in that non-original content is not being creative, just like making non-creative memes is not being creative. Goodbye and good riddance."

You came here kid, I didn't seek you out.

This meme is creative, why would I lie and say it wasn't?

You don't know anything/ Stop frontin' already.

Bye bye now. :{

"I don't think you comprehended a single thing I stated. I clearly stated that non-original content is not being creative, even though the original content might have been creative. See it is very basic. If you have to copy someone else's idea, you are not being creative in thinking up your own idea and you are not being original. I never stated all original content was creative, just that all non-original content is not creative. Don't judge my ability to read simple English when you are not capable of doing it yourself."

You're just mad that he can read and you can't.

"Just because you are being a f**king dumbass asshole is the only reason I am replying right now. I stated "Wouldn't the lack of creativity be basically the same as unoriginal?" You stated "One is the lack(itself) of creativity while the other is the product of it." So if the lack(itself) is in reference to "lack of creativity", then you clearly stated that unoriginal is the product of creativity. Checkmate asshole."

You're under the age of majority, aren't you kid? You swear like a kid.

And your logic is still flawed.

I said that unoriginal memes were the product of a lack of creativity, not "unoriginal is the product of creativity."

You're just so bad at arguing points that you've flustered yourself or something. Otherwise, I'm sure anyone can see how retarded you're being about being wrong kid.

You probably suck at chess too. :{
