Thanks, I appreciate that y1c2n3.

I also have drawn the "wrath" of the imgflip mods by calling out their bullshit so, that could always be a factor.

Oh, and how they use multiple accounts to stifle people who do so.

I like your memes too and wonder why they aren't on the FP. Do you use the share feature? I don't, and have wondered if it would even help. :{

Besides, the point of memes is to spread funny ideas. That's all they are. They're not works of art, or literature, or anything. If you post something online, you give it to the public to post and redistribute.

A) When people repost a meme, they're not claiming it as their own.

B) It's not just popular people who repost from unpopular people. It goes both ways.

But the biggest point is, if you prefer not to repost memes, then that's up to you, but there's really no reason to make a fuss when other people do it. Most people just repost memes because they happen to think those memes are funny, and there's nothing wrong with that.

People's feelings aren't a standard for deciding right and wrong.
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
I didn't say there was a rule or even that meme-snatching is wrong. I just said it hurts feelings. I just try not to hurt feelings when possible. Many memes are already posted elsewhere so re-posts are inevitable. But if the meme is original or obscure it can hurt the original posters feelings if a more popular user gets recognized for their work. I personally have no dog in this fight cos I'm just happy to be here.

Can you cite a single example where a top ten user has reposted a meme of a less popular user and it has hurt their feelings?
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
I said it can. Why else would someone complain if a top tenner reposted their meme. I find it flattering if someone would like my work so much they would take it, but not everyone would feel that way. Some may think (erroneously) that a meme belongs to them. I know of you post something in this type of forum it kinda becomes public domain. Someone else may think why is everyone upvoting that meme now, when I posted, it got 5 views. I just think giving credit may alleviate hurt feelings.
reply
2 ups, 2 replies
You're probably right about that thought process. I see no harm in people giving credit or providing a link to where they got the meme from, if they know it.

Something easy that people can do if people see their meme reposted is put the link to their meme as a comment on it, with an explanation of what happened. That way people can see both memes, if they want.

But please keep in mind that in most cases (at least that I've seen), when people complain about a repost, it's not because it's their own meme. Often they don't provide backup, and just make an accusation based on their impression they've seen something similar before. These could be completely unintentional - just a person making a similar meme as someone else without knowing (so an accusation of reposting is unkind and inappropriate). Other times, the complaint comes because it's a meme that has been reposted frequently and has been seen numerous times. In those cases, it's hard to know which one is the original.

I completely agree with you and have myself commented (in a funny way), hey that's my meme there, glad it's working for you it just laid down dead for me lol. BTW the poster did not acknowledge that mine was there first a few days before. I took it as a learning experience. My meme was so good a popular user was compelled to re-post it. I am an old lady full of spit and vinegar, some of these kids just starting out need to be encouraged to be creative and have their work acknowledged.
But you are right a great many of the re-post whiners just like to cause trouble and troll.

reply

If it's posted on a public website, it's EVERYONE'S business.

The point of reposts is that:

1) It's not original.
2) You're riding someone else's success/creativity.
3) wasting FP space that could be used on ORIGINAL content
4) Being lazy

And yeah, most don't say that they are reposting something. If they did, a lot of the people complaining about the reposts wouldn't. Or at least not as much. :{

There's no rule that says memes can only be original.

If you like memes that are original, that's a personal preference. No reason others need to heed it.
reply

"Be creative
Use your creative powers to make something awesome! Reposting is not strictly prohibited, but try not to repost something that's already popular on a big website. Moderators will try to disapprove obvious reposts. "

Yeah there is a rule, but since Imgflip LOVES vagary and the mods are lazy, the reposters get away with it so often.

And no one is saying "make a rule" socrates, so why so serious?

As for the meme comment, people would be less likely to vote on reposts knowing that they are reposts.

It's just YOUR personal preference as well that it should be accepted.

Me and others, logically, hate copy-cats. :{

It sounds like you're saying that one reason it's good to have comments on a meme pointing out reposts is so that other people can take that into account when deciding whether to upvote it or not, since if they didn't know it's a repost, they might vote differently than if they did know. Have I got that right?
reply
1 up
Socrates, I think I said it clearly enough. But the Socratic Method thing you've got going is great.

So, what I meant/said is that a person would vote differently knowing if it's a repost.

I don't care when someone has in the title "might be a repost" because at least they put it out there first. Anyone who comments repost on that meme is just being a douche.

But people who repost and don't say anything till they're called out are lame and are just trying to get more points.

I don't make my memes for the FP or points, I make them to laugh and hopefully make someone else laugh. The FP/Points are just perks. :{

I have been reposted. I made a meme comment and about a week later, I saw that meme on the front page, posted by someone else. Did I call them a copy-cat and whine about how I should get credit? No, I said "This was my meme, but you are free to use it. I'm not a whiner like some people."

No, I really don't get it. When someone reposts my memes I want to jump for joy, not rage about it. The whole point of why I make memes is for them to be seen. If someone reposts one of my memes, they're helping that happen. I don't understand why you think reposts should be downvoted. But that's up to you.

Also, a lot of reposts are memes posted a while ago, and a repost helps bring back the popularity it may have had before. Maybe even the repost whiners will get the original poster noticed (if that's the only good thing they can do).

Not the best tactics kid.

And no, whining = complain in a feeble or petulant way.

Seeing as you're trolling people with a meme b**ching about repost notifications...stop b**ching/whining so much?

A person pointing out a repost isn't "whining" because they have a valid concern of essentially plagiarism.

Douchebags like you ARE whining about them because you immediately resorted to name calling(trolling) over being told that YOU COPIED someone else's creativity.

Can't you be original instead of b**ching about not being able to?

Care to share the relevance of that thought kid? Or will you just stick with ambiguous hypocrisy?

I care when you point out reposts, because it's a waste of time. Let people have fun on a meme website instead of being so uptight about your "rules".

Do you even know what a double standard is? When people point out that something's a repost, they're mostly uptight whiners like you who care more about things being the way they want them rather than the general enjoyment of the members. People post memes online, and when that happens, it's anyone's property. If you post a picture on Facebook, or Instagram, anyone can download and save it.

"I care when you point out reposts, because it's a waste of time. Let people have fun on a meme website instead of being so uptight about your "rules"."

If you cared about wasting time, you wouldn't COPY someone else's content kid.

If you cared about having fun, THEN WHY CALL A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHINERS?

And what rules? I posted IMGFLIP'S rules about reposting dumbass.

I also never said I had any rules about the site.

That's ALL YOU kid. And your bigotry towards people pointing out reposts.

"Do you even know what a double standard is?"

lol You clearly don't, so why ask the question?

"When people point out that something's a repost, they're mostly uptight whiners like you"

Even more of your whining but okay.

"who care more about things being the way they want them rather than the general enjoyment of the members."

Says the guy mocking a group of people on imglfip because they DON'T SHARE HIS VIEW. ROFL!!!!

If you gave a damn in the first place, you wouldn't make a meme that ruins the general enjoyment of the members who hate reposts. F**KING DUH!

"People post memes online"

YOU DON'T F**KIN' SAY?

"and when that happens, it's anyone's property."

Not entirely true but sure, I get what you THINK you mean.

"If you post a picture on Facebook, or Instagram, anyone can download and save it."

This is all making you sound like a stalker and not a memer kid. I don't D/L people's facebook images for f**king memes. :{

I'm not asking for your opinion. You can backlash me all you want. If imgflip has rules about reposting then fine, I don't and won't do it. And I'm not mocking people who point out reposts. I'm mocking people who complain about reposts, and act as if they are on some moral high ground when it comes to this stuff. Get a life, and maybe get off imgflip for a day or two.

"I'm not asking for your opinion."

Really? But you said: "People post memes online, and when that happens, it's anyone's property."

So by your logic, your meme is now my property.

Either way, you posted on a public meme site kid. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO COMMENT DESPITE YOU NOT ASKING FOR AN OPINION.

"You can backlash me all you want. If imgflip has rules about reposting then fine, I don't and won't do it."

*sighs Do you even READ comments?

"And I'm not mocking people who point out reposts."

OMFG you're about to say something really stupid:

"I'm mocking people who complain about reposts, and act as if they are on some moral high ground when it comes to this stuff."

IT'S THE SAME F**KING THING KID. And, you're a hypocrite because IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID.

Your meme makes you sound like you think you're morally higher for not caring about reposts. DUH!

"Get a life, and maybe get off imgflip for a day or two."

Yeah immature trolls don't tell me how to internet kid. Go f**k yourself. And take that double standard "logic" with you. :{
