Skeptical Baby Meme | PEOPLE DO THAT? THAT'S MEAN! | image tagged in memes,skeptical baby | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I noticed yesterday that a couple of my comments were pushed down and had no idea someone would downvote just to get higher up. These people have too much time on their hands or some sort of inferiority complex--lol. Thanks for the meme, bc I'm slowly figuring out how imgflip works :)

Yes. Ok. Often it happens to me. But I notice on my featured often the first comment gets pushed down with the same amount of votes or even higher.

I'm not sure whats going on or how imgflip arranges comments. Its weird if you look at this one. imgflip.com/i/1c3c1c There are comments with 8 votes placed lower than comments with 7 upvotes. Oh for the good ol days when you could see how many ups and downs you have!

Well I did down vote the hidden posts. I found them offensive. I don't really care for locker room talk, but his comments were a bit more than that.
So other than that person, I can see where who's getting down voted because of the placement of comments. I'm not even convinced the new guy last night is really "new" since he suddenly popped up as a first comment on another meme.

If I see a funny meme, I upvote and comment (where theres time because I do stuff here while trying to work!)

If I just like the meme, an upvote is in order.

If I go "meh" I scroll past it unless it has a lot of comments, then I'll go see what all the ruckus is all about. And then maybe get in on the action.

And if I find it offensive, I just also scroll past. It has to say JC is a D*** before I downvote.

Trolls get one comment from me if they engage. But that's it. That way they get the last word and usually go away.

And as DashHopes and Raydog once said, new guys/gals get the benefit of the doubt until they start acting like a d***

Hokeewolfs thoughts for the day. All for free! ;)

Please tell me you don't think I am doing this. I saw the same things you did last night. Posts and strings were bouncing up and down that thread last night. It was very hard to keep track of conversations.

No, I don't think it's you. There are a "few" on the list, and it's not necessarily my comments... I see it to others.
Actually I had a complete meme war w ghost, the next day, all my comments were pushed down with same amount of upvotes as the new commenter. So, unless some one is purposely down voting me, I have real suspicions.,. It's happening to everyone though.

I see, so this may be someone from your past who has a grudge. Or, grudges against others as well. That's sad, because for the most part we are one big happy. I guess there always will be that one black sheep though.

You can look at hokees example. I'll try n find another. But it mostly happens on top users, and those that are suddenly hot.

I see what you are saying, but that may be perception. I'll try to explain....

We see imgflip as a vertical line because the interweb is designed to be seen up and down, not left to right. If we could see it left to right, each new comment would be next to the last, not below it. Each new comment to those comments would initially fall below the original comment, then left to right as more new comments were added. If I could graph it out, it would look like a pyramid or a family tree. The more comments there are, the more branches there are. The numbers (up-votes) are really arbitrary in this setting. Make sense?

They are not arbitrary. Same amount of votes goes to person who commented first. Unless someone down votes them, then they still have same amount of votes, but below the second commenter.

OM is the original meme, C1 is comment 1, etc. The first comment with the most up-vote will always be on top, or to the left, then each lower numbered one below or to the left there after.

I won't argue that with you, because I don't have all the answers yet. But, I am not ready to agree that down votes may be influencing how things get shuffled around on here. I am one of "those" people (a genius not a mod) that will sit for hours thinking about it and graphing it all out. I will look at it deeper over time, what I will do with that information, I don't have a clue. In the mean time I will do what I can to watch over my friends and protect them the best I can.

Yep I get it. I just don't let it get to me anymore. I did the last time I was on here and it drove me off the site. I'm here to have fun and share my sense of humor with the world. For me the points don't matter, the up-votes don't matter. The Quality of the people that I interact with, does. I like you as a memer, you challenge me and you make it fun. I consider you a friend. Don't let these people get you down or run you off.

I know there are certain ones who will not upvote other's comments, we all know who they are. Personally if the comments draw me into participation I think they all deserve an upvote unless someone is engaging in blatant douchebaggery.

I honestly try and upvotes atleast the entire thread I'm commenting on. Just I've seen so much lately. Especially on top users memes- because commenters know the higher they are up in the comment section, the more likely they will get upvotes. In my opinion.

Can't deny that happens.

I don't downvote. Ever. It seems censorship to me and I'm nothing if not a free expression extremist. As for all the mucking about and positioning, I just assume imgflip has the usual number of self-absorbed members any other social media site does. I'll upvote good memes, original ones, and frankly those made by people who have been pleasant to me. I'll upvote the comment I am commenting on out of courtesy, or because I think it good, but will pass on upvoting if I'm having an (usually political) argument. I have upvoted comments I am commenting on without upvoting the original meme, but that's rare, or at least not my common practice. Mostly I just want to laugh - or have a debate sometimes - and I don't worry too much about ups or downs.
