It's not suspicious it's mostly redditors is all. They only make a meme here to post over there and while the views register the people viewing it can't upvote it unless they are members here. I have posted memes to reddit and while it does run up the views it won't really help how the meme does on imgflip unless flippers like it.

Only thing about reddit is it's not very easy to promote your memes on another site over there. Most of the memes that reach a crazy amount of views and upvotes there are reposted from sites like imgflip. I had a meme get reposted over there that got over 500,000 views but it was posted in a comedy cemetery subreddit which is where jokes go to die according to it's explanation on the page.

It's no easy task to explain reddit to somebody who hasn't been there. It's a very high traffic site with tons of "subreddits" which are groups of people that like a certain topic. Figuring out which subreddit to post your meme to is no easy task. Plus if you get it wrong or sometimes even if you get it right you can expect the majority of the comments to be negative if the mods let you post it there at all,

However you can drive a ton of views to something if you do it right or get lucky. I am not sure what this new viral feature is for. It seems to me upon first glance it is more for redditors maybe in hopes of getting them to use imgflip more over there. Most pictures/memes of any kind there come from imgur so maybe imgflip is after a bigger piece of the whole internet meme pie. I'll have to look at it more than a couple times to make up my mind though.

I tried lol. There are a ton of rules over there some of which I don't even know. It's not something that can be explained very easily ;)

The only suspicious thing is that I've killed all those viewers, so there shouldn't be any left alive to view anything :3

I love how imgflip just throws something like this at us with absolutely no explanation lol. I always thought "viral" was like over 100,000 views but hey if they say it's viral it must be dammit.

The first time I checked out the "viral" memes, it stood out to me that they were all anonymous. It wasn't until later on that I noticed the huge number of views and put two and two together, realizing they were all made by redditors.

yup I came back to imgflip after a long time and noticed the viral section and was weirded out by the fact they were all anonymous hopefully they will remove the Reddit thing

Hi, why do we keep getting spam adverts, even though I flag every one of them as such?A recent one had posted the same ad 5 times, so it's not a "one off" post per username type of thing!

Not sure what you mean.
Spam as in people making memes to promote a business or website?
I haven't noticed too much of that but when I do I hit them with a flag and this nice SPAM meme. I don't think there is much else we can do about that and sometimes flagging doesn't get it removed. I don't know all about it yet.
But I do have a list of about a dozen possible troll/alt accounts with less than 1000 points that I compiled just yesterday.

Exactly, there's a bearing place, IT training, maid cleaning services etc...
I've noticed a lot of low point accounts that seem to be kids, their posts are all about games and school, you know the stuff. Would be interested in seeing your troll list, although they seem to be leaving me alone these days, thankfully!

I think some people come on imgflip to make memes promoting their business to share on other social media. I suppose it is good advertisement since memes are easily made, read, and shared. I don't think they are specifically trying to spam us.
They are just submitting memes they made for public use.
I flag non-English only memes because the "submission guidelines" say "English only" but the guidelines are not "rules" or "terms for use." There is a link at the bottom of the page called "Terms" that probably says more than just the "guidelines." When I flagged one of the foreign language memes I wrote that I didn't understand why the foreign language memes stayed featured and one of the moderators replied that they were not violating the "Terms of use." Oh well, I guess. But I still flag non-English memes.
These are new users and *possible* trolls or alts because they just joined:
