Colombo notes | DOWNVOTED TO SUBMITTED YOU SAY | image tagged in colombo notes | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
That stinks. I had one like that. Made the front page, but I never saw in my profile page. Went to look at it mine "my images" and same thing, submitted status. I searched for yours using the divorce tag, definitely not up anymore. Weird. Can you please send me a link to it?

How does down votes actually work? Do they counter the up votes or works entirely differently? Could this be someone complaining to the Mods rather than down votes?

I'm not 100 percent sure, I've heard different things. You can see downvotes in memestream memes, like in imgflip.com/m/templates or imgflip.com/m/needameme but not on front (hot or latest) pages. The front pages used to look like memestream memes, but the web code for the front pages was updated over a year ago. On front page memes, only upvotes appear to get counted in the meme and comment up counts, downvotes don't hit those. Some users say they can see downvoting in the meme upvote count, I have not. On comments, downvoting can be inferred. If one top level comment shows 4 upvotes and is lower than a 3 upvote top level comment, I think that is an indication there was a downvote.

One thing I've noticed in my time here is my upvotes can take some time to affect the up count, usually milliseconds, sometimes a few minutes, once in a while up to 5-10 minutes, page refresh doesn't matter when looking at the meme up count. There is a tab on your profile page called "my likes" if you look at the meme upvote count there, it seems to always instantly reflect the true meme upvote count. I think that has to do with imgflip's architecture that relies on Amazon Web Services. Virtual databases running on virtual machines in the cloud.

As far as a complaint to the mods for this meme here, that is possible if there is copyright infringement maybe some other terms of service violation. I doubt that was the case here. Another more likely possibility that just occurred to me is a site glitch. I have seen about 5 or 6 of those in my time here. I can go into more detail about those if you want.

Thanks for that. Just had a new submission down voted back to submission after picking up two upvotes. So plenty to learn about the dark side of the site. :)

Well the site donvoted my first page meme to submitted because:

"That's because it's a blatant ripoff of someone else's work and you did not add any value to the image, and you deliberately added a dot in the meme text to circumvent the check. Imgflip is a community for creativity, not for a recycle bin for the rest of the internet."

Was that from the ImgFlip mods?

Welp, I guess that's what happened to me too on my front pager that disappeared. And apparently to some of my other memes without captions or just a period that never featured.
So I see a silver lining here. 1) I'm pretty sure you still have the points from that meme, if that's important to you. 2) The mods have spoken and given guidance. Make sure you add captions to every creation from here on out. I will be doing that too.

Thanks. That was what they complaine about, using a period to submit a blank meme.

Did they just send you this by themselves or was this a reply when you chased up the matter?

There should be special points bonus for blatantly stealing something, getting busted, then crying about it via meme and messages to the mods.

Hadn't thought about that. Good news is you're still on track to make the millionaires club around the end of September if you can keep up the good work. I'm helping where I can. Ignore the haters, Raydog and DashHopes and other top users have had their share.

That was just the tip of iceberg. My new memes are actually being down voted so as never to make the front page. Other memes with way less votes and many more views are ranked above mine. Be very lucky to get into page 5 at this stage. This have been happening since Friday.

Hmm, Friday. I remember who i was memeing with that day.

Anyways, I think the next two weeks will be pretty slow until school starts. I bet things will blow up in early September, a bunch of new users will sign up and the volume will pick up. Front Pagers will have 300+ upvotes frequently.

I remember SpudlyJunk did this meme in the spring imgflip.com/i/1ob6ul I'll post one like that tomorrow and you are welcome to post links to memes that didnt feature or went back to the basement. When Spuds did it, solid users came around and helped out many users who posted links, the good news there is that the upvotes on those will still boost you.

Thanks. On Friday I got one down voted back to submit. The others are still featured but never made it even into page 5 even though the views & votes say they should. They were all got pushed to page 15+

I've been here almost a year, I think I've had 6 or 7 make the front page. I'm cool with that, I'm sure if I commented more it would help my stats.

I'm happy to help nice users that ask. I might not always know the answer but if I can help I will and if I cant find the answer I will find someone who does know or find the meme where someone wrote the answer down. We're all in this together. While I honestly believe every user matters, the relationships that last will tell you who are the users you want to meme with the most. There are some darn funny users here, the laughs are what keep me coming back. Humor style and creativity are what I look for, why I'm happy to help you!
