Okay, You have called upon the users for advice. The best time to post your memes is when you have good ones to post. ;-)

WARNING: Positive Swiggys-Back critique follows. Must read for all new users.

In all seriousness, your memes aren't as bad as you make them out to be. Actually, they are mostly worth upvoting. I went through and upvoted all but your first one, and that was simply a matter of taste. I even upvoted your Trump one, which I NEVER do, because it was actually funny.

So, you've got the main idea of meme making down. Time to post? I never pay attention. I post when I have sometime to post. Anywhere from the start of the day to the end of the day. Others may tell you otherwise, but that's my experience. You can post at noon, but it may not feature until the following day. Or you can post at midnight and have it show up in half an hour. Posting and featuring are a crapshoot.

Getting a meme to page one? Again, a crapshoot, because you never know when someone will see it. Or enough people will see it. This is where the social aspect of imgflip comes in. You have to build yourself a fan base. You'll see this over and over again, but the best way to do that is become known by upvoting and commenting on other posts. Here is where you let your wit sparkle and shine. Play off someone else's meme and let your sense of humor shine. Apparently, you have one. I checked your profile.

Speaking of comments, I see you've started to reply to them. GOOD. If you can't top what someone comments, a simple upvote and LOL works wonders. It shows you appreciate their effort to make your meme better. The more comments, the better likelihood of it making it to page one. Users here respond to acknowledgement, so an upvote and reply does well in building a fan base. IF, however, you can top them, like you did with your IPOD meme, do so. But don't forget that a simple thanks goes a long way.

What does having a fanbase do for you? A few times I was close to certain goals I had set. Last time what when I was looking at 1/2 million points a few months ago. I figured I'd hit it with my posts that day, but due to a system upgrade, they hadn't posted the two memes I'd submitted. Got down to the wire, I posted a third meme, started commenting on nearly every meme posted in the HOT pages, but as time was running out, I was still a couple hundred shy of 500K. I mentioned it in a reply to a friend, and BAM: I was over by several hundred in just a few minutes.

It'll actually cover several memes, and I'm working on a meme stream for new users that gives the tips and tricks.The hard part, really, is to come up with decent memes. you have that down. Social aspect? You're on the right track by answering and upvoting your memes.

Now commenting on other user memes. Try to be positive in your comments. NEVER resort to name calling, as that is a TOS violation that can result in throttling your commenting ability or a decrease in number of memes you can submit. (more on that later on) Commenting ability, though, is important. You'll discover when commenting on other memes that, if you try to make multiple replies to the comments, you'll get a time out timer ("You're commenting a lot. please wait ### seconds before submitting another comment"} You can reply as often as you like on your own memes, but other peoples, only one comment about every three minutes. If you go negative by trolling (or fall for the trolling for trolls posts) and your commenting ability is throttled, you may have to wait upwards of 15 minutes or more before you can comment again. I've seen people that had to wait three hours before they could comment again because they were such trolls. One reason why I keep my comments mostly positive. Like I did with you, I critiqued your memes. They were good. I mentioned one I didn't upvote, but put it as a matter of taste. But I also go the other way, especially when someone posts a Y U No Upvote My Memes? post. We get that a few times a month, and I reply accordingly. They rarely have memes worth upvoting, and I tell them that (I use the reverse Y U No template that asks "Y U No Post Memes Worth Upvoting") Usually, by the time I see them, they've already posted memes begging for upvotes without posting anything entertaining. They usually have zero comments as well. Some get angry. Some get upset. One gentleman I critiqued came back with a comment about and just how do I do this question and I shocked him by giving him an answer. Not a smart ass answer, but a fairly complete answer that he did not expect. It must have worked, because his next submission (a GIF, not a meme) made page one. He's only been there a couple times since, but he does well when posting.

Just glanced at your Profile again. when you hit 10K, which could be in early next week, have a thanks meme to say that. 10K, 50K, 100K, 250K, 500K, and then every million after should be standard thanks.

Did you ever visit the website, "Ruminations.com?" It's defunct, now. I used to post there. It was just funny phrases and deep thoughts kind of stuff. Comedian Aaron Karo owned it.

No, I didn't. I spent a lot of years making my own sites: the Church of SPAM, PUNography (there's another one out there with that name, but not related)

I also was a mem-rep on Prodigy's Comedy BB from 1995 to about 2000. Prior to the Internet, I wrote and performed my own stand up routines.

Thanks,Dayrick. In the backstabbing world of business, a lot of people are surprised that so many here are so helpful. Those of us that have fun with the memes and GIFs do it because the better the memesters, the better the site. The better the site, the more people come here to view the posts, the more we all get appreciated.

^^^ I gave that an up-vote just for using "contemperous," not to be covfefe'd for contemptuous.

I just saw someone in the latest, page 3, with over 100.000 views! Then there are others with 0 views. That's messed up.
