How long ago was that? Some said 10 votes did it for them back in the day.

There is one that made the front page on 23 votes today.

There's a correspondence between views and Upvotes, I had 178 views with 18 Upvotes. The algorithm they use must take in account of the views/Upvote ratio. That's what I believe. There's probably more factors calculated like time but I have no idea haw many things they use.

I think that the number of comments factors into it as well.

Well, since you've been here so long (two months) I'll take your word for it.

I've seen memes with very few upvotes and a crap ton of comments on the front page, but wtf do I know?

PS - I really give less than 2 shits about my points, I'm not on here enough, but how the hell do you get over a half million points in two months? Good work, congratulations, high five, and all that...
reply
2 ups, 2 replies
Got most of my points by commenting. We're about pretty much the same give or take 100k points and 1k in comments + submissions.

I've seen plenty with a crap ton of comments but few upvotes not go anywhere, so I concur with ya,,,

That seems to make sense, with time factored in.
I noticed lately it may happen more on the weekends, when things slow down some maybe? I often go straight to Latest rather than Hot, get em fresh out the gate before things get too busy, so I'm not too sure,,,

Yea, it's also about the competition you're up against that makes the whole thing getting to the Front Page that can really make the whole affair quite dynamic. All of these people vying for the Front Page can make the outcome of any algorithm really change greatly. I like in a way that it's kinda "Mysterious", the "I have no clue what's gonna happen" factor keeps it all interesting and new. :)

It sounds silly, but I sometimes get itchy, like claustrophobic or watching a Tim Burton movie and want to run off.
Plus my tablet messes up too at times, so keeping up with tons can be impractical. So I go elsewhere.
But it is interesting trying to figure how it happens. Remember late last year when like a 22 month old one finally wended it's way to the FP?

Lol. I see reposts getting there as well, and I mean reposts that I've even seen on FB! Now, to be fair, the submitter doesn't always know it's a repost, but I know quite a few know better, but hey, they should also be congratulated for pulling that off, too! Then they can burn in hell, as far as I'm concerned! Lmao! :)

It's funny seeing reposts a couple of pages apart on latest.
I thought it happened last night and almost commented on one as a goof, then noticed it was the same one, just that none came out in a bit, strange because they usually keep conveyer belting out,,,

Right and wrong. At this moment in time its right. I have seen it during the busy period needing close to 40 upvotes to make it to the front page (I'd say this is when everyone is back in school and more traffic is on the site.)

Based on my observations in the last few days 25+ does the trick. It will always be different of course.

It was hanging on the top of page 2 with 27 votes then got promoted when the old memes above it moved down. The Kermit "Spoiler Alert" by MnMinPhx had 28 votes when it made the front.

27 votes is the current trigger. I've just voted The Grumpy Cat boner meme from 26 votes to 27 and seen it go front page.

Just gave you a few upvotes, you do have some good stuff, but as usual the problem is getting views. Most of your memes seems to have less than 100 views. Submission times are crucial for getting views. :)
reply
5 ups, 1 reply
I disagree. While it is true that a late submission will count against you when getting maximum views, the crucial timing has nothing to do with the memer. It has everything to do with the time that imgflip decides that it is a meme worth featuring. I submit 3 memes a day, and all are submitted very early in the morning (usually about 5:00 am Eastern Time). Although I have had several make it to the front page, there are a great many that aren't featured until late in the afternoon, or later. For those memes, it's kind of like being shacked at the start of the Boston Marathon, only to have the shackles released several hours after the starting gun. Just my 2 cents.

6 ups, 1 reply
That have been my experience too. You're right we don't have full control over it. But early submissions have better chance being seen than later. That is what I am getting at. :)

Thanks for that bro. I've noticed that most of the guys ate in the US. I'm In Western Australia so I'm in the wrong timezone, but I'll have a go at submitting them in the morning before work. Thanks for the tip.:). Bye for now.

It really depends. I've have memes not make the front page and get upwards of 60 upvotes. And then I've have a few make the front page and only get 50 or so upvotes. Usually, you'll make the front page with around 25-30 upvotes, but as long as you're getting the views as well.

A few months ago I realized that as long as you're about 3-5 upvotes above the total hours you made the meme, you'll be almost certain to make the front page. Example is if it says you made the meme 10 hours ago and you have 15 upvotes or more, you'll have a very good chance at making the front page.

Of course, that doesn't count those users who submit month old memes.

Things seems to have gotten harder now. The threshold for getting into the top 100 is increasing every day.
reply
5 ups, 1 reply
It is the same for me. Couple of memes with 60+ votes but never make the front page, so it is really depends on how quickly you get the votes. Which is why I specified a 24hr limit on the OP.

Also agreed with 15 upvotes in 10hrs to hit the front. But I think it counts featured time rather than creation time. I've seen days own memes that hit the front page hours after being featured because it had 10+ existing votes on it already.

I think it depends on how quickly it got up votes. You could have a meme with over 100 up votes never make it to the front page if the votes came over a few weeks time.

Yes over the last couple days I have seen some stuck at page 2 with 38 votes. But 28 votes worked over the long weekend. LOL

So yeah it is all relative to the strength of the competition on the day. :)
