If I was the force behind anything it would have been the departure of so many good memers. Fortunately I am not to blame for that.

Viral memes can only be downvoted by antivirals, as opposed to bacterial memes, which can be downvoted by regular antibiotics.

Looks like views are key in this, so maybe shared to social media memes?
reply

Yes like when memes are made here for view on Reddit. Votes are probably secondary if at all considered.

Guy who used to be on here, probably before your time, who used to take photos of himself wearing women's underwear and posted them. Got kicked off. Called himself Jeffery. What was special about jefftims?
2 ups
XD jefftims is in the top 100 with zero submission
reply
1 up, 2 replies
Ah. Yeah, that sounds hinky. Or just someone who comments constantly. Though I've never received one of his. Or maybe a moderator conspiracy...

The reason why jefftims is one the top 100 is because he has like 5000 creations but none of them are submitted.

Yes. I got sidetracked by the viral button meme I put on. You're pretty much the reason that's there. After you told me about it and I asked DashHopes about it, he asked AndrewFinlayson about it and as they tried to figure it out AndrewFinlayson made a meme about it and I did one in response. You're a social media mover, girl. ;)

How?!?!?!? I notice one thing and everyone goes crazy
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
I would never have noticed it unless you pointed it out to me, or II ran across someone else comment mentioning it, which might have been months. It's just that it would be nice if the people who ran the site overall would tell people about new things they put on the site and how to use them instead of letting people trip over them. :P But that's just an old guy whining.

You found it exciting that I watched Hetalia? When I say 'exciting is in the eye of the beholder' it means most people wouldn't find me watching 'Hetalia' an exciting prospect. Apparently you do. :)

So I've been poking around Viral pages for the past day, here's my take.

1) Appears that only creations made with the meme generator get ranked on the Viral pages. I dont think creations made with the gif, pie chart or demotivational generators are in there.

2) Appears all memes including unsubmitted meme comments get ranked once a day, at midnight Pacific time. The Viral rankings don't change the way either Hot or Latest do.

3) Appears the ranking criteria for the Viral pages are number of views and how new the meme is.

4) When the daily rank is sorted, imgflip puts out 10,000 pages of viral memes. https://imgflip.com/?sort=viral&page=10000

5) On high page numbers (like Page 9000) you can only use the back button, to go towards the front of the pile. On each high number page above Page 572, the "next" button at the bottom is grayed out.

Shows that a new meme is hot? I still don't get the reasoning behind it. But that may have more to do with my age. :D Still, thanks for the info.

There is a way for memes to be created and simultaneously displayed on both imgflip and other sites like Reddit. Views on Reddit register on imgflip. Those memes can be very popular on Reddit with hundreds of thousands of views, but practically unknown on imgflip. I think the viral button is intended to be an easy way to find those.

Ah. I always wondered why some flip memes had so many views when they didn't seem to merit it or move much because of it. I don't do Reddit (or even necessarily know much about it) so I have little clue.

I agree with everything Andrew said. It would be nice if they provided a link to where on reddit the meme is doing good though. That place has so many subreddits or "categories" that just figuring out where to post a meme over there is insane.

It appears to me that imgflip would like to get it's name out there a bit more by having us post our stuff around in hopes of going viral now.

Most of the images posted on reddit are from imgur they even have a link to that site set up. Redditor memes have always been frowned upon around here, more so back when I started, now people just don't know about them lol. For some reason they have to post under anonymous but they are the reason the whole don't upvote anonymous memes thing started. Plus they never reply to or upvote any comments left on those memes.

It will be kinda cool to know if one of our memes has taken off somewhere else I guess. Even if we still won't have any idea where exactly or by how much lol.

Yeah, I know nothing about Reddit. What little I've heard has left me cold. I always felt that those who won't post even under a fake name really don't deserve a look-in. 'Anonymous' makes me leery. I'm happy enough here. I just couldn't understand how 'viral' functioned, and I'm not sure I'm hearing enough of a reason to check it out much.

I've tried to figure it out, not a new user friendly environment at all. In fact each subreddit has it's own set of rules and mods that are always around. If you are a new user and try to post something they will most likely reject it right off or take it down within minutes.

The site calls itself the front page of the internet and it has a point. It's not a place you want to go and try to troll people. Unless you want your shit hacked or are capable of stopping one. I never found a subreddit that did anything but act like I had walked in their house with mud on my shoes. I forgot my password after a few weeks and never cared to try and find it lol.

Yes the people there have the power to make things go viral. They just aren't going to share it with any of us lol. In fact they are more likely to tell you whatever it is you posted is lame if you get something posted at all.that is.

That's just my opinion, don't ask me what I think of imgur that's a different rant but along the same lines. You post something on imgur and just watch the downvote fairies destroy it. I thought breaking even over there was doing good!

By all means explore these places on your own. From what I know about you the same thing will occur that did for me. You will realize how lucky we are to have found this site. Why it matters that we don't let it turn into every other site on the internet ;)

Reddit sounds like the internet a$$holery I stay on imgflip to avoid. ;P

I'd rather take my chances with the trolls. :D I've always had 'issues' with authority. I guess I should be praising the mysterious and light-handed nature of the mods here, rather than whine about it. Yeah, can't imagine some arrogant 'net twat looking down on my creations or input. I'll stay put. I just wanted to make a meme a couple years ago and imgflip was the first one that came up when I typed in 'free meme generator'. :) I got lucky.

Same exact thing happened to me. I thought I would try imgur for some of my photo shop stuff that I don't caption. They tend to not feature my stuff here if I don't caption it. I posted a pic there that had gone viral on reddit the week before, it ended up with 3 downvotes and 6 negative comments lol. Over there the downvotes take away upvotes and vice versa, like I said breaking even made me feel lucky. The only reason something I created did good at reddit is because somebody else posted it. You really have to earn your stripes and build up "karma." Which is no easy task since you get good karma for people liking your posts or comments, which they won't do because you have no karma lmao.

I have never seen another site like this meme site or not. People don't realize how bad real trolls are and how thick your skin has to be on other sites. Only thing that bugs me around here is waiting on stuff to feature like this imgflip.com/i/225xm6 None of raydogs 3 memes featured yesterday and I deleted a gif at around 13 hours myself. I hope I don't have to delete that one I spent some time on the top pic ;)
