Upvote! How does that work with gifs? Is a new title enough to make it your own?

I guess, gifs were a very small part of imgflip when i started. I am not going to lie and say every gif i have submitted I made myself. But the ones i made from scratch have done well for me. I guess honesty really is what matters most. I've never taken credit for another persons work. I believe that is more important than anything else in my opinion.

Honesty is a good point when it come time to submit and take credit! I have made a lot of creations from scratch, including some of the gifs I've posted. Some of those have done well, most have not. I am most grateful if and when my original creations get featured by the moderators. They don't always get featured, that is a risk one takes when hitting the "submit" button.

When I was new, I copied a gif from Giphy and posted it on imgflip. Apparently someone somewhere did the same as me a few weeks before I did. It was an issue to someone somewhere. That sucked, mostly because the users who were immature about the situation weren't claiming the gif was original, just that mine was a "repost". Seemed a bit dishonest and hypocritical.

You never know where your meme might end up. It only takes one person sharing it in the right forum for it. Imgflip does us the honor of featuring them and putting them out there on teh intehwebz.

Unfortunately people without the ability to properly converse or have proper social interactions with others always find a way and plenty of time to be online ;)
