Above that is this. They are guidelines to help users have a better chance of having their submissions feature. I have seen foreign language memes made with custom templates (by several different users including established users) that have featured. That implies those were reviewed and approved by a moderator. I always upvote those. I saw socrates make a foreign language meme about nine months ago, I think it was a pretty popular meme.

You and I have had this debate ad nauseum (imgflip.com/i/1ufssb) and I really don't want to do it again, but here goes...

Yes, these are "guidelines", not "rules". Much like the constitution, we're debating the (poorly written) wording that leaves a lot of room for discussion.

All of the other guidelines are just that, good suggestions to get your meme featured. The passage that Skrubbz posted, however, uses some very cut & dried, absolute language such as ENGLISH-ONLY and WILL NOT BE FEATURED (caps added for emphasis only, not "shouting").

My two cents.

Here's my two cents. Foreign language memes get featured. Some of those are made with custom templates, which implies they were reviewed and approved by a moderator. I like those a lot.

Geez, guys, Google has a free translator. If you don't like it then don't upvote. If it gets featured then it gets featured C'est la vie! :D

Upvote! Thanks for your comment and the the link. Not sure what you mean by let it go though, I'm just making a meme and it's not about you.

Please see my comment above with the two pennies and the link. We've had this very discussion within the last week, you commented all over my meme.

That's what I mean by "let it go".

You must have a very short memory? You will probably go back and delete the comments that you left on my meme just to destroy the evidence.

All over your meme? That's somewhat laughable. One comment and two replies to you? One reply to Swiggy? My memory is good, thank you.

Just to remember you by ;-)

This meme's doing really well, btw. Congratulations on that! 8 upvotes as of 1330 east coast time on 28 Aug! I don't know how you do it. You must be so proud! Raydog had better watch out, you'll overtake him any day now!

I use Google Translate to figure out their meaning, if it's funny and they don't have memes in English in their profile, I sometimes make a meme comment in their language. Seems like something might get lost in translation, I don't get many replies. But I do that simply because it's fun for me:)

I still think most of them are unintended submissions, that is until a non English meme make it to the front page. :)

I've seen foreign language memes by top users, socrates made one just before Christmas 2016. I think it made the front page.

I don't see why people downvote foreign language memes. If they get featured, then they're fine. Besides, it's not ok to be cultureless and closed minded.

IKR? I guess your last sentence explains part of why.
