If anyone looks back at my memes,.. they will see I used a "generic 6",... a handful of old templates for about a year... ha ha!!! I never created a meme,... or even uploaded a meme pic for a comment,.. until this year. =) There was not anyone on the imgflip worse or more inept at creating than me. I never knew when I was a beginner which pages my memes featured,.. or began. To this day,.. I still don't know! ha ha! It hasn't effected me in one year! (today is my 1 year anniversary with IMGflip). Don't let bother you... just have fun,... worrying about where a meme starts and ends,.. or points,.. or icons,... is not fun. And the way I see it,... points here in imgflip won't even get you a free slice of pizza! Making a meme is fun,... but I think for many,... if not most,... it's the hilarious comment threads that follow. Flaming,... at any level,.. or even deviating from the purpose of the site,... is not fun. Just have fun! IMGflip admins do what they do for a reason,... knowing they will never make everyone happy,... so they have a standard that is the same for everyone. Just go with it. Ever been in the military? Adapt,.. improvise,... find your niche,... and be a good user! No one on this site that is an asshat does well... NO ONE. Not calling you one,... just reminding you that positive, polite, respectful users,.. do better than those that want to change the rules or buck the system. Everyone on the top 100 users list started with the same icon,... same limitations.. and grew with the site. What makes a great user,... is not the icon,... not the leaderboard,... not the front page. Great users interact well with everyone else,.. and are as happy to see others succeed as they are themselves. Invicta's 1 year advice: "drop this junk ... and be a user that people want to see comments from!" That's what makes popularity,.. not complaining.
