Time, effort, and the points you inevitably receive by posting on someone's meme. You're taking advantage of someone else's work for your own gain.

I respectfully disagree. I still stand by my original point that some memes do not deserve an up vote, but do deserve a comment. And believe me, some of my comments will result in my memes being downvoted retro-actively.

Mean spirited memes are one thing. If it's a meme that's essentially trolling I have no problem with that.

So you agree that not all memes deserve an upvote, but may merit a comment? Believe me I love humor and if you go through my submitted memes, none of them are political or mean spirited. But I was raised not to let blatant falsehoods to go unchecked.

If it's a meme you like, and you comment on it, the poster deserves an upvote. If the poster is being an ass, they deserve no upvote.

Not that I don't care about mine, but it is harder to win an argument against an idiot, so, I think my point is clear.

False, plenty of people care about their reputation, you just admitted you do yourself. Some don't understand what hurts it, which is the way I was approaching my conversation with Moon. Other's clearly don't give a f**k.

You will succeed or fail on this site based in large part on your reputation. The top memers aren't on top because of luck.

Posting after 10 p.m. EDT can be a killer, custom memes in the middle of the day don't seem to be as detrimental as they used to be.

Being on the weekly leaderboard certainly has advantages as far as visibility goes. Memes have to be seen to get upvotes.

I generally post mid morning to early afternoon, depending on my work load, etc. I share to reddit, tumbler and all that, but I am almost always sub 100 views.

I post generally around 3:00-4:00 PM Eastern time, and sometimes if I'm up early enough, 6-7 am.

Those aren't bad times to post. A lot of folks are on then. Sometimes it's just hard to get noticed. Moshii did a meme with one of my ghostofchurch templates and got barely 5 upvotes I think. I changed like two words (which didn't change the heart of the meme, and got 30+ upvotes).

I benefit a lot from being on the leaderboard, it's a shame that particular instance was such an example of that. I wish there was a better way to spread the wealth, but I honestly can't think of a fair way to do so (well, one way comes to mind, but it bypasses the mods and would open a whole different can of worms).

Exactly, and those folks don't get replies to give them comment chains which lead to points, especially when they don't even upvote your comments in your replies to them.

Unless it's a bait meme (trolling) you should upvote the meme if you're going to reply. I save my efforts for those deserve it. Forgetting (like I'm prone to do) is one thing, but when it's a consistent pattern, no comment for you!)

You're comment is still here. It just drops in order depending on how many upvotes it has, or if there's other comments that have downvotes it'll behead of those too.

There was another two but she quite the site.

Mind you these are aside from trolls. Any known troll (or spammer) gets an immediate DV on my meme. When it comes to trolls, in my opinion there are no rules, but I suggest keeping the high road and avoiding violations of TOS yourself.

Great question, with many opinions on how to answer it. To me, a troll is someone who is specifically targeting a person or group with negative actions/words in order to provoke a reaction or to put someone down. In addition, they need to have a history of doing so to be labeled as such.

Some people may be having a bad day or whatever and act like a troll, but when it becomes a pattern, they've crossed into trolling IMO.

Now that the election has wound down, I think the number of trolls has dropped drastically. I hadn't really thought of it until someone brought it up, but I think there were a number of paid political trolls (on each side) on the site during that time. Some still remain I'm sure, but the overall hostility on the flip seems to have died down.

Thanks. That's consistent with my own understanding. I guess I just haven't been targeted by trolls here and hadn't really noticed what they were doing. I'll be watching for them a little more closely now.

If you stay out of the political memes you're much less likely to run across them. Most of the community comes here to have a good time and laugh. Most trolls don't realize how tight-knit the community is and when they do troll they meet heavy resistance.

You didn't have to delete it!

There's so many negative arguments/disagreements on this site that I think it's great when two people don't understand each other at first and can quickly come to positive understanding! This was a great example of that in my opinion!

I see "0 ups, 1 reply" all too often.

I make a point to upvote everything I comment on or reply to, even if I'm arguing with a witless wonder. But that's just me, I guess.

If I reply anywhere in a thread I try to upvote every comment in that thread. If I have time, I try to to upvote all the rest of the funny comments in the same meme and the chain they're in as well.

If I'm having a discussion/disagreement I typically upvote them as well as long as they're not violating the TOS. Once someone breaks the TOS the upvotes stop.

I know that for me, personally, it depends on what my action is as to whether or not my upvotes stick. There has been several times when I go back after someone replies to my comment and I see that my upvote didn't register on a meme or comment. It's frustrating because I want my upvotes to count:( if I catch it I will try and upvote again

People like Chaz are the real MVP. I'd love to blind upvote every comment in a meme, but too often in front page or page 2 memes there's rude comments that don't deserve an upvote. Someone else said it before, but an "Upvote All" button would be nice. Then I could just look for the trolling comments and remove upvotes. Less work that way.
