Great memecraft and colors!

Not saying repost, but it reminds me of one that Invicta103 did. His was more "political", where as yours is going against the media.
reply
7 ups, 1 reply
Invicta was one of the very first friends I made on this site, I don't recall that meme but maybe it is lodged in my subconscious and influenced me making this one. I've been thinking about him a lot so it's possible, I'll have to go look for that meme now. He didn't use original templates until a while after we met so it shouldn't be too far back in his list.

Yes, likewise, he encouraged the hell out of me and a lot of other new users. I really hope that a) he gets his ass back here soon and b) that nothing bad has happened to him.

The meme that I'm thinking of had two scenes, left and right, a tree on a hill, with mythical creatures. If I get time I'll go look too.

When I first started submitting memes, I was on here around a month or so before I did more than make stuff for my facebook lol. Anyway I think it was like my 4th submission he liked, Reallyitsjohn and I had just started talking and then both of them filled that meme with so many comments full amazing advice and encouragement I was hooked on this site instantly. They weren't the only ones just the first, it's funny I hear people say the top users don't help new people but at the time I was helped by people at the very top. Raydog supported my meme comments big time and gave me a really big push in popularity. Socrates informed me of meme history and proper educate. At first we didn't see eye to eye on everything, but since I was respectful in our disagreement and so was he. We were able to discuss things and now I consider him to be not just a great guy on a meme site. He's a lot like a mentor, kinda like in the way you find that one professor in college you just click with. I've done my best to emulate the way he is with new users, the way all of them were and still are. It's funny in a way I still think of myself as a noob around here. I'm always learning new things about memes and at the same time teaching what I know to others. I never dreamed when I found this site just how much it and the people in it would end up meaning to me :)

Well said, I was thinking the same thing, that the top users have those traits in common. They weren't given a following, they built it. You, Socrates, Raydog, Sewmyeyesshut, Tetsouwrath, etc., like the Mount Rushmore of memers. (There's a meme idea for someone good with photoshop, LOL!)
reply
7 ups
I think it has to do with the fact we all love to laugh, more than that we love to make other people laugh. I don't think those traits really coincide with being a jerk and not wanting to help other people make people laugh. We just want to see funny memes, and if we help people there ends up being more funny memes for everybody to laugh at. Anyway that's the way I see it, the only people I won't help are those who are here to try and ruin our fun. They will never succeed because they can't make us change our sense of humors. The only person that ever effected mine was my x wife hahaha!

I like the Mt Rushmore idea, there's just not enough room for all the people I believe deserve to be on there. I've photo shopped that mountain once before that, I think it's rather fitting in this circumstance.....

As Abby says above, "well said" indeed. Very similar story for me. I was on the site for about 3 weeks. I'd just been having fun making memes, not getting more than 4 or 5 upvotes a pop, just happened to have page 9 meme the first night of page 9 week and top users have been nothing but supportive of me in the two weeks since. You, MemesterMemerson, OlympianProduct and SewMyEyesShut, have especially made me feel like part of the community. Too many others to mention by name have also been apart of that, but I never felt held back by anyone in my brief time here.

Very eloquently put. I've never had a Top User make a negative comment. Nothing but a compliment, a price of advice or a funny meme response.

Phone app development may not be something they have experience with. As such, it would probably cost them to hire a contractor to do it.

Actually, I'm not clear on what kind of business this is. Maybe it's a small company with enough people to maintain the site, but not enough people to do any additional feature development, or develop a phone app. Who knows, maybe something is in the works. But I really do wish we had a mechanism for reporting bugs and making feature requests. We really have no contact with the people running this site. That is very strange. Usually a business wants to communicate with its potential clients in some way, practice good PR.

It's very confusing I know. There is an option to pay for a membership but I can't think of one person I know that does so. I don't really see any adds they are making money off of. For a while we had some clickbait and while some complained I was like cool more money for the site. They do upgrade things, we used to not be able to add images below other images, if you made a meme comment it posted right away and if you got that comment timer message that you were commenting too often you would have to remake the entire meme. That is much improved now which I am grateful for. The popularity of this site has grown a lot since I started last November. My general feeling about it is it's still growing but like you mentioned they may not have the cash flow to invest in things to improve it very often, but every now and then they do upgrade something and we all flip for joy over it lol.

If you click on the about link at the bottom of the screen there is a feedback option. The general consensus is they never reply, I have written maybe 4-5 messages, got one reply but it was about a hacking incident that turned out to be my fault for copy pasting a link into my browser from a troll on here when I'd been drinking on fourth of July weekend. It just changed one of my meme thumbnails to porn on my profile page and only I could see it. They did reply to that message but I fixed it myself after I realized what had happened. The site did get hacked once when I was a noob it sucked, they deleted a bunch of memes and put porn all over the front page. Anyway I don't think they have time to reply unless it's really serious.

They seem to want to stay out of things and not interfere. Maybe it's so they don't get accused of favoring people, that type of accusation gets thrown around some about top users. The mods have accounts they just don't post memes that I know of. There have been a couple times I've received an upvote on a meme that was in submission that nobody but a mod could have seen, and one time only I got a nice comment from one as well. But that's it, maybe a total of 5 interactions in over 600 submitted memes.

That's pretty much all I know can take a guess at. It's a mystery, but things could be worse. I hope they are making money, they deserve to be, this site provides a lot of laughter for a lot of people. To me that's worth a lot, if they run this site non profit they have to be the most generous people on the internet ;)

Wow! Thanks for sharing all that. I'll take some time to absorb it and consider what my next course of action is going to be. I think I'll just start emailing them every day until I start getting answers, or if they have PayPal, I'll send them some money and maybe they'll give me a chance to ask some questions. Anyway, much appreciated, as always. Take care!
