Just because a top user is on the front page does not necessarily imply that the person is on the front page because they are a top user. Correlation doesn't imply causation.

Exactly! It's like Bernie sanders and the 1% argument is spilling over into imgflip.

Great comment H2O!! I see what I think is kind of like a domino effect based on our current president that goes something like this: If the greatest country elected a far lefty like Obama, then other countries in Europe and Canada (for instance) follow suit with disasterous results. This also gave rise to the crazy f*cking unicorn Bernie to come into play. I believe that if Obama was never elected, Bernie would have never gotten even half the audience that he now owns. I might be extrapolating this idea a bit much here, but I believe that as a result of Obama and Bernie, we will be dealing with a much larger group of butthurt, self entitled moochers for a long time to come. The "everything is rigged"/participation trophy crowd is now emboldened to speak their minds more and demand more free shit than ever and it will continue to spill over in just about every facet of society for a long time to come. Obama and Bernie buy their votes through free shit and class warfare. Okay, rant over! I feel so much better....Lol :)

I tend to rant a lot too.. "Ooh I'll make a quick witty comment here" *28 minutes later*... Lol

I totally agree with you, now we have a bunch of butthurt entitlist (<- thats a made up word lol) morons that think the government is there to create a utopian society and that successful people should give everything away. The worst part is, they can breed, and they will be teaching their kids this BS for many years to come, like you said. Rant over. I feel better too! :D

0 upvotes. Lmao! FDR implemented tons of socialist programs that we still have today including social security. He saved the country from the great depress and got the economy back on track. Now we have a similar thing happening were wages and jobs are going down while prices of everything go up. The people need Bernie Sanders in order to save our crumbling infrastructure.

That I was...and my memes didn't get seen by anyone either...Tetsuoswrath was one of the first people to comment on and upvote my memes...I asked him for advice and what do you think he told me? You guessed it... he said "Start making lots of meme comments on all the front page memes, both to the meme itself and to any memes in the comment threads that jump out at you, be as funny as you can and people will start noticing you and your own memes will still start doing better"...I took that advice to heart and here I am today...Many of you all know, it is very good advice...It works.

Dazzlingdiamond made a meme about influences.. i mentioned tets too! He says he came months after I joined but I recall chatting with him earlier. I also followed examples of good users... and did not flame over differing opinions etc. No one is attracted to negativity except trolls.. and they run on a different battery.. will never make entertaining memes! I see a lot of new users making good stuff! You're still top dog bro! Ha ha!

The imgflip story that comes to my mind first was the Leonardo DiCaprio meme that Raydog made, about replacing a Facebook addiction with an imgflip addiction. The comments on the meme turned into a rhyming free-for-all and a lot of people joined in, which was really good to see. I'm pretty sure that's where he started getting well-known on the site.

Ikr? Certain people (Or should I mention him specifically?); Er, Sir_MemesAlot are getting way too butthurt about a meme site. The top users offered him advice on how to get his memes to do better (Good funny comments = fanbase = more people looking at your memes) But he thinks everyone is "talking behind his back and making it personal" smh.

Maybe you shouldn't be talking shit behind my back, or make memes about me without using my name. You guys are the ones that made this personal, not me.
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
I specifically left out your name because I've seen other users doing it too. I didn't want to mention names because I didn't want to ruin anyones reputation. And I never made it personal, I was just pointing out that raydog was new once too. New users can make it, I've gotten 220k points in two months, thanks to lots of supportive users and lot's of advice from the top users. And, for the record, I've gotten a custom template to the front page within a day ;D

You're a jealous, trolling user here. I've seen your memes and your comments. You hate anyone who is successful on this site. You hate the fact that some users are more successful on here than you are. You're the type of person who thinks the wealthy and successful should give away their success to those less successful.

You see? You're an angry person and it shows with your hatred toward me. Most people don't just come out and say, "eff off a-hole" and "you're full of sh1t." You're just a hate-filled person and it shows here.

Like an adult. I mean, unless you're only 6 years old. You're mad 'cause your original memes don't get featured quick enough and when they do they're featured on page 10 of the "latest." Well, guess what...mine are no different. And I'm still garnering points and some of them make the front page. Mainly, because I don't get p!ssed off at other users for being more successful.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES TO GET FEATURED. I HAVE STATED THAT OVER A HUNDRED TIMES ALREADY. And if you are going to claim that yours start on page 10 or later, prove it to me. Create an original meme and let me know when it is submitted and I will start watching for it. If it appears on page 9 or later the very moment it gets featured, then I will delete my account.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
I don't care if you delete your account or not. I guess your problem is a personal one. Not sure why you're p!ssed off at users like Raydog. Sounds like jealousy to me, but whatever....

I wasn't pissed off at him or others until they started turning my posts into personal attacks. I have only been trying to state the ongoing problem with original memes not getting featured until page 9 or later and how that significantly hurts the chances of new users, or users that can't spend 16 hours a day on the site, from having their original content seen. I don't expect someone who has over 600,000 points to understand how that is a major disadvantage to new users.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
No, they were trying to help you; give you pointers. I read most of the conversations you had with them in the beginning. You refused to listen to them and you just grew agitated with them. You refuse to listen to anyone's pointers, so there's not much anyone can do. Sorry.
reply
[deleted]
0 ups, 2 replies
That is because they didn't understand a single word I was saying. Their pointers would work for someone who was asking for popularity or to join their elitist ranks. However that is not what I was stating at all. I was exposing the truth about original memes being posted on pages 9 or later and how it significantly reduces the chances for new users to get their original content seen. Making meme comments only does any good if you have over 1000 points and if you are replying to other comments on memes located on the front page. That does nothing to change where memes are getting featured at the moment they hit featured status, does it? Just like them, you lack the intelligence to understand what I was saying.

So you're saying because I'm in the Top 10 on the all time leader board, I'm an elitist? Lol!

Also, if you're so upset about the way things are being done here, talk to the mods. I'm not a mod, so I couldn't tell you why your original memes get featured so far back.
3 ups
Ignore and flag his comments. He's just another troll now, who can't accept the fact that his memes show up on page 9. Like anyone would upvote them now rofl GG bro.

First off, I am referring to you as an elitist because you refuse to listen to what I have to say, make your own conclusions of what you think I am saying, and then try to give me advice I don't even want or need based off the false conclusion you made about me and my complaints.

I have tried contacting the mods, and never hear from them. By why would they only listen to 1 person? If there are multiple people with the same problem, and multiple people were to say something about it, then maybe the mods would actually listen for a change.
