OMG you're right. First time.

I see you're at #3, only two below your rightful spot.

And your dog meme is at #2 on the front page. Congratulations!

Catch you after breakfast,,,

Hi Damon,

I think I get most of my points in the comments also. Got lucky with this one, but it's the exception.

I've seen your work... you have the spark... sometimes the flame!

Me? I never even looked at the leader board and rarely at HOT until you clued me in.

Under a rock, you see.

Anyway, how else can we judge the effectiveness of the dog/dog link?

We might need a bucket of hot water to seperate the dogs! ;-p

Sounds silly, but this is the exact method employed by great poets.

Walt Whitman was famous for it. AND because of it. ;-)

For some people, begging for points seems like a good idea. And NO work on being creative or coming up with ideas is needed. ;-)

But upvotes are easy to come by. Everyone who leaves a comment on my memes gets them. Even most of the unpleasant ones.

Btw, the *babe* you left here is very pleasant. Thank you.

I'm off to rummage through your collection... you are definitely getting GREEN ARROWS, since I am a fan of your work in other comment sections. :-)

Does "easier methods" include stolen memes from other meme sites, Twitter, Reddit, pinterest, etc...? Cause that's what I see the most of here anymore. Creativity is a rarity here anymore.
reply

Probably. Still a noob (almost 2 months) so I haven't seen that kind of stuff. Plus, this is the only 'social' site I frequent. I guess it would go right over my head.

Maybe that's what people mean by stolen memes; I always assumed it from from imgFlip.

If true, we must fight the good fight and be even MORE creative. I'm hoping this will make our memes stand out.

I tried another meme site a few months ago. Submitted a single meme and got over 2,000 views. Then I made imgFlip my home and now get between 25 and 35 views per meme. This one is an exception though. Must have hit a nerve!

Btw, the single meme was Picard WTF. With the outstretched hand. The text was. "How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?" Only 170 views on imgFlip. Maybe there are less users? Sometimes I can almost hear crickets when browsing my memes.

I prefer the generator here, so I'm screwed.

It's getting to where the majority that you see on the front page are just stolen memes from other sites anymore. Sad. Met a lot of great people on here in the time that I've been a memeber, but sadly many of them have left because of the pressure of trying to be on the front page, or get enough points (which are meaningless), or just trying to come up with 3 submissions everyday. The thing is, they chose to simply quit rather than start blatantly stealing others work off of other sites. I respect that so much more. Think about how hard it is to come up with anything at all, much less something good that will do well! Then to see all these lazy, unoriginal vultures swoop in and call it their own. At least when I started they TRIED to hide it by changing up the caption a bit. Now it's literally the same image AND caption! I point it out and a MOD for this site (who according to their account just started here) calls me a troll for calling out a thief! LMAO!! Didn't bother asking me if it was originally MY meme that was stolen from another site! LOL!! Getting crazy round here! Hang on to your memes!!

Good question. The CREATIVE way.

Commenting again to ask you something! I saw somewhere in comments a photoshop download mentioned, and I could be wrong but was it you who shared the link? If it wasn't you then the search continues!
reply

Yes, that was me. It's not Photoshop, but has many of the same features and seems easy to use. And best of all it's FREE.

I made this with it on my first (and so far, only) attempt:

imgflip.com/i/27bbsp

The free software is called paint.net, recommended by coollew to me. you can see by his memes what can be done. It's no secret he's one of my very favorites.

He also recommended a great installer that does everything, including saying NO to all bloatware (toolbars, etc...). This one is called Ninite and I like it a lot. You just check the one(s) you want (paint.net and/or dozens of other useful FREE utilities)) and click install. Done.

Here's the link. https://ninite.com/

I'm sure you'll enjoy the editor - it's got tons of great features. Good luck!

And I hope you'll follow up with links to your new masterpieces. :-)

Thanks! I was racking my brain trying to remember the name of the site! I only have Microsoft Paint right now and that's not always as good as I want it to be. I appreciate you posting it again for me!
reply

No prob.

I will still use MS Paint for quick stuff like a crop or resize. But it's nice to have the flexibility of paint.net for when I need the high power features.

Enjoy!

The ups seem broken? I gave that comment an up vote, and it has a green arrow but says "0 ups. I wonder if there's a down vote troll making their rounds.

The UV buttons seem fine when I use 'em on you.

Not sure if a DV removes an UV though. Are you sure it works that way?

I know if you click 'em twice, it toggles it back off. You might have been too quick? My mom warned me about fast women!

Anyway, I appreciate your appreciation. :-)

I'm over points, so no biggie. It's the thought that counts.

Catch you later...
