I think it's contagious! It's sad that someone is giving all their energy and life into this hating.
Make sure to take time to live life folks. In the end, the people you are hating on won't even remember, and you'll be poisoned with anger and resentment in your own heart. High blood pressure is a serious issue. Live, laugh and love. A light heart makes a long and happy life.

The Most Interesting Man In The World Meme | THEY DON'T ALWAYS GET DOWNVOTED BACK TO SUBMISSION BUT WHEN THEY DO, IT'S NOT BECAUSE THE MEMES ARE BAD | image tagged in memes,the most interesting man in the world | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Some of the children here (real children as well as immature "adults") dislike it when they get called out on their BS political memes. Since imgflip doesn't have a method to block users or political memes, and they are so plentiful, it's too difficult to ignore them. Comments are made, and next thing you know, they go on a downvote party.

What's especially aggravating is when they downvote my memes because they think I've been downvoting theirs, when in reality I haven't been downvoting theirs.

I think I've had a few GIFs that may have been downvoted back to submission, but not my memes. Most recent one from the other day: i.imgflip.com/1sf48d.gif (click to show)

Still, I'm noticing that a lot of my memes have gotten ignored in the shuffle. A good example? i.imgflip.com/1sq00l.jpg (click to show) I posted this on Imgur the same day. I got more UPVOTES on Imgur than I got views here. Over 100 upvotes there, with only 2 downvotes. In fact, all my Diner of Despair memes do well over there. Here, even with original content, they barely cause a ripple.

That gif is really funny :)

Maybe the diner ones don't click with the imgflip crowd as much?

It's possible. The earlier ones were about marriage, and most the users here haven't even had their first kiss, so they couldn't relate. Then there's always the timing. I've seen times where I post my memes like a minute or two after midnight PST (when the new day starts on imgflip) and it takes 10 or more hours to feature, then other times, post, and they're up all within an hour. Go figure.

I had a hunch that midnight PST was when the new imgflip day starts, but I didn't know if it just seemed that way because I always have my phone set to PST.

Yeah, I can't recall how I found out, but every day, +/- 3 minutes, it kicks over to a new day.

I think it starts at midnight in whatever time zone you are in. Because for me, a new imgflip day starts at 12am CDT

I'm on EST and have to wait until 3AM. CDT is only an hour behind. I'll recheck it tonight, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to post at midnight, or one, EST.

Unfortunately, once a featured meme gets downvoted back to submitted status, it's there permanently. No amount of upvotes will bring it back to featured status.
