I'm flattered to be on the list, but I don't make it nearly as often as one might think. Most of mine stall on page 2 or 3 if they get that far. :)

After being here for a while, it seems to me that making the front page is more often about having "subscribers" or "friends" than anything else. I know what some of the top users do to make front page. Most of them just find something that's already out there (such as your typical funny internet picture) and caption it. It's not necessarily original - in fact, sometimes we've ALL seen it *rolls eyes* - but it's still funny. However, most of the top users ALSO occasionally submit original, funny, or thought-provoking meme creations - some users more than others. Kudos for those. I simply wish that the site were set up just a bit differently - so that more people could see the quality memes of less active or "popular" users.

I would say the numbers don't really add up for that, since it takes 40 to 50 upvotes to even get to the front page. Since there isn't a "subscribe" option, visiting a user's page has to be a conscious action. I will give you that having people familiar with you can give you a good shot at making the top 5 or 6 pages in the hot stream, but from there a meme is only going to advance on how much the rest of the users like it. If you look and count the number of active/commenting users, all their votes will only get you to 25 or so upvotes. Again I submit that it takes the unheard from users to push something to the front page and keep it there. That's my take. :)

Good comment John! High volume memes cannot come from a "click" of users,... but good comment memes can assist in getting it more traction. Ultimately,.. a high volume meme is the result of votes / comments from users we do not know,.. or interact with frequently. Top users cannot vote each other to the front page,... it's not possible. Case in point,... we have both had memes that may generate 150 or 200 upvotes,... but the comment sections will be a third of that,... and some are repeated comments,... from the same users. 100 comments are not always from 100 users,... many of us leave multiple comments on the same thread. Great comment brother! (Now back to work!)

Very good points; however, one could also argue that simply GETTING to the first few pages of hot/latest is all it takes to get the additional views required to get a quality meme more upvotes... see where I'm going with this??? If you don't get to the first few pages of hot/latest in the first place, even the regular users won't see your meme - which could be a very good meme! Thus, I would agree that having even a few people "watch your page" is critical. While it certainly doesn't account for ALL upvotes and views, it DOES cause memes to get better "real estate" and thus more views from lurkers (and therefore more upvotes and comments overall). The structure and mechanics of the website cause upvotes and comments to push your meme to a place where it is more likely to get MORE upvotes and comments, eventually reach front page (if applicable), and then die out. It's as if the memes themselves have their own (very short) life cycle.

Honestly, I'm not even complaining, I'm just fascinated by it (because I'm a huge nerd).

I never took as complaining brother,... All good points! I was going to reply to your 1st comment above,... but got tied up and John seemed to address it well... I just kind of built on it. To be honest,... I rarely look at front page. Last times I kept track,... sort to speak,.. was watching john and jying hit their 1M point marks. I have no idea (totally) what the process is for front page. I have seen some memes with several hundred thousand views,... have 20 or less upvotes. How in the hell does that happen? I am sure it is a combo of upvotes and comments,... and the initial UV / comments to a meme may push it into better real estate,... and thats as far as my knowledge goes! =) I have seen some damn good memes not get the exposure they deserve,.. IMHO. I personally wish at times that there was no LeaderBoard,... or "front page" memes. It seems to have caused so much ill feelings. It's not fun,... when a few make it "not fun". It's all about fun! Points, Front Page,... Leaderboard seem to also attract some negativity,.. not much,... but we have seen memes and comments of animosity,.. blame, accusations, entitlements, jealousy and worse. Some folks take this shit so seriously,... they have missed out on fun they can never recover or gather again. Have fun 1st.. make memes you enjoy,... and if others identify with them,.. and leave crazy ass fun comments,.. it's even better! =) Good comment by the way! Now back to work for me!

I didn't take it your comment or Juicy's meme at all as complaining. I too kind of nerd out on this stuff. The real estate from pages 6 and up in the latest as I mentioned, will get you enough views to continue the climb, but its still how much the rest of the community likes it that counts. Over the last 3 weeks about half, maybe a tad more have been in that so-called "sweetspot". However page 2 has been the highest I have gone in that time frame. Please feel free to come them a look (and an upvote lol) to fact check me. Some I can't believe didn't make first page while others I couldn't believe went as far as they did. A lot of them viewers had to be of a certain age range to find funny which I think a lot of people miss that when creating memes. Any way my point being the higher you go the better chance you have of reaching page one due to exposure but it certainly is no guarantee or even a hint that it will make it. As for comments I dare say they are having less of an impact on movement as the community has become A LOT more active over the last few months!!! I do mean A LOT!!! They still help, but when compared to the activity more are vying for the same positions. A meme submitted about a week ago asking for comments (it had nearly 300 last I looked at it) did not go beyond page 3 as I recall. A few months ago that meme would have made page one with 25 upvotes. I believe the comment weight has been adjusted although I could be wrong. Anyway those are my observations and I would love any input or suggestions of things to watch to either prove or disprove my theories. Also to everyone who has joined in the last few months and jumped right in to being active THANKS, YOU MADE THIS SITE EVEN MORE FUN!
