Here's what you do...First, go to the memes on the front page and make as many funny meme comments as you can...both to the memes and to any memes in the comment stream that you want to reply to...the funnier you are the more people will upvote your comments and begin to notice your memes...EVERYONE looks at the front page memes so you want to make your presence known in those memes for sure...also go to the "latest" pages and do the same, if noone goes to the latest pages and looks at those memes then most newer user memes don't get seen

That's the first step for new users...You just got to make yourself known...if your memes and comments are truly funny, you will get the upvotes...go to the profile's of some of the top ten users and look at their memes. See what has worked for them and get an idea or two...For me, most of my best ideas come from commenting and interacting with other users...

Be respectful to other users and they will usually do the same in return...most importantly, have fun and be creative with your memes and comments...One more thing, make sure you upvote the memes and comments that you reply to. If you do, more likely than not, they will in turn upvote yours…it’s kind of meme etiquette around here…

I give this same advice to everyone that asks because it is the one tried and true method to get noticed on this site…if you look at any top user, you will see that they have comments that number in the thousands…that is not coincidence!!!

Hope this helps a little.

You have to be chilled-out about it though.

If someone's motive is just to get popular, they'll probably get frustrated, because it takes a while, and there's no guarantees.

It's more fun when you can relax and just make funny meme comments for the enjoyment of it.

Reading through your comments, Raydog, and can't find fault in your advice. I go through the latest pages all of the time and find some new users bragging about unseating you. I always stop, because I haven't run across any that had done anything of note. Found one recently with an account a week older than mine bragging about how he was heading to the #1 spot on the leaderboard. Checked his profile and don't think you have anything to worry about from him. About 2 dozen memes, half begging for upvotes, the rest were lousy. One meme commented how he was "almost" to 5000 points, a week later, he was closing in on 4000. Last I saw, he was still closing in on 4000. Heck, my account is a week newer than that, and I'm less than 4000 away from 500,000 points. I'm not in a hurry to catch up to you. It'd take a decade, at least, because I wouldn't expect you to sit and wait for me to catch up. LOL.

One thing that bothers me about some of the newer users is their begging for upvotes. I'll give them upvotes if their profile shows upvoteable memes.

I just wish your trolls would leave ya alone so you didn't have to call them out. I know you'd have a better meme to post than this one, page one meme that it is. The trolls don't realize that they need to be entertaining.

Usually, it's a young school kid that lacks life experience, although there are enough immature adults here that also fit that bill. The key is to play to your audience. You do that very well.

One complaint I here from the detractors is that all of the top users just list of jokes with nothing original. They don't realize that everything old is new again, and the top users do something with those old jokes: they present them in an original fashion that makes them fresh. We rarely use standard templates. Bad Luck Brian is the only one one I use consistantly, but I won't go into the psychological reasons why he works so well. He just does.

Making a good meme is like casting a movie: you have to have the right template for it.

I came here to make political memes for a website. I didn't lost them here because this isn't a political forum. I liked the humor, and have focused on that since coming back in November. I've stayed the course, and tried to help new users get on track. Some listen and are coming along fine, others are mostly just alt accounts that just use the service to troll. I give pretty much the same advice Raydog gives, comment and upvote. Only gave specific info on meme improvement to one user, and offended him. He came back with a question and I gave him step by step instructions. He landed on page one. LOL. It was on content presentation. He was greatful, his memes look better, and when I come across them, I always upvote them. He's greatful. But I do focus on the humor. I've learned this is a fun hobby. To keep it fun, I can't be too serious. Like Raydog, I don't have a problem giving advice. If someone asks me outright, I've found that usually the only thing they need to do is improve their comments and upvoting.

Im the same my friend :) I just meme the way i see it at the time regarding the nature of comments :) i get alot of criticism for my remarks due to my sarcastic nature but would never directly be derogatory of ones opinion as we are all in this together :) i am a firm believer in karma and cold beer :)

Even when I tried to debate politics, I tried to do that. Drove OPs crazy because, instead of knowledge of an issue, they could only reply abusively. Then their replies got flagged for TOS violation.

The biggest problem here are the kids that think if they post something, anything, it will automatically put them on the leaderboard their second day.

Guess I better submit a couple memes, now. Maybe by lunch I'll hit the half million mark.

I don't want to be a top user or anything, but I give respect where it's due and you do come up with funny memes.. And that's why on here, to get a laugh and hopefully give others a laugh to. I more cater to my twisted side when I do my memes, or perverted side. But I do like a group/crows friendly laugh as well.. And credit to you for giving advice to the newbies like myself and not a inflamed ego.

You have my thanks man...and I'll tell ya, I didn't start out wanting to be the top user...it just happened...There's no point in having a big ego...in the big picture, all these imgflip points and "fame" don't mean anything...It's nice that some people appreciate my sense of humor, so if I can make some people laugh every day, that's what makes it worth it...of course you have to take the bad with the good as well, and you can NEVER make everyone happy all of the time, so it's best not to even try...Happy memeing dude!

It's really sad that noobs would come in and take shots at the best Flippers on the site. I read Raydog's breakdown on how to succeed here. Wholeheartedly agree, and that's about as fair a shot anybody can give an "ambitious" memer.

Sooo....trolls are unwanted here. If you don't make good memes, just learn how to. Don't get all pissy because you're not getting noticed. I remember when we had downvotes. Downvotes taught me what WAS and was NOT funny.

Makes ya kinda miss em. Right, Ray?
