IF IMGFLIP TAKES OVER YOUR THOUGHTS YOU MIGHT BE A MEME ADDICT | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
He was a good memer. I'm a bit sad he left by deleting his account.

I get what he said in his goodbye, there are times at work or at home when I'm thinking to much about imgflip. I've been able to take breaks from submitting stuff, I have a hard time not scrolling through Latest though.

Of course I'm sad as well, but I think he's right. I've always said I would make it to a million points on this site, but so much shit goes on it gets weird. I'm still going for the million, but I have GCSEs looming in about a year, and I'm gonna need a hell of a lot of time off, so I'm trying for a million before then. Afterwards, you probably won't see me much, so I'm making the most of my time here now.

<forceful>

After much thought I've made the tough decision to delete my account. It's gotten to the point where making submissions is a chore. It just doesn't have the magic that it used to. Nothing to do with the people on the site or the content of what's on it. I've realized when I'm at work, I'm not really there. When I'm at home, I'm not really there. I'm thinking about my next submission. Did I use the right template? Was my grammar correct? How can I get the most points? Oh, my points. My precious virtual points. They aren't even real, they're meaningless, but I want more and more. My addictive personality perhaps. I want you all to know that you guys rock and I wish you all the best, even the people who I didn't get along with. Who knows, if we actually met, we may get along fine. So, some time tomorrow morning my account will be gone. Thanks for putting up with my shenanigans. Smile when you think of me.

As someone who has been around here a few years and been as high as 3rd on the list, it gets very hard to keep coming up with ideas. I know in year 2 I hit that point and took most of that year off, occasionally popping in to say hi to friends. In short when it becomes a job, its time to step back.

I get that feeling, and I understand what you are saying. Things get too serious and addictive. Sometimes, we could do with just starting over again (although that's probably not very practical).

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't dream of starting over again. I am however finding it no big deal to take some vacations :) The site is still a lot of fun for me, but the creativity level is hard to keep up day after day, especially for those who try their best to be original.

Yeah, this place is past it's prime now, it's becoming ever more desolate - reposts, political whining and a load of in-jokes are all that's really left.

I think there's still hope, it only takes a few new creative users to join. You've been around long enough as well to know there are ebbs and flows to the site. That being said the site itself needs to tighten up. !2-14 hours for my last to submissions to hit is unacceptable. No one wants to create in the morning only to land at 2:00 am.

Yeah, that's true. But I guess it kind of depends on where you are in the world - I'm in the UK so I usually see Raydog's submissions at 5 or 6pm local time. Don't know if this is how it works for you? But yes, I think user template submissions shouldn't tale that long to feature. Even normal ones take quite a while.

I'm sad he's gone. But I know for some people they get addicted to something and need a clean break. I wish him the best. Good thing is there are always new users up and coming. I'm getting to know a few now I really like.

Yeah, I completely agree. I'm gonna have to take a break for a while, not because I'm getting addicted, but because I've got really important exams next summer so I'll need a lot of time off from basically everything. But yes, you make a very good point.
