They don't release the memes right away. Wish I knew the schedule or algorithm... or a moderators friend.

Still got #3 in the pipe from the same submission... hours ago. And... nuthin'.

I used to try to hunt them down on LATEST but I gave up. Too much trouble.

Anyway, you're always free to click on a profile and rummage through the goods. I do it all the time. :-)

That's what I have been doing. You have to go looking if you want to find the good stuff that never seems to make it into the feed.

Is it on automatic pilot? What is the process? Does anyone know or is it just random? I can't figure it out. Oh well.

I noticed after up voting or even just browsing through several other users memes that they would then show up in the latest or hot sections. Strange.

If you click on your username in the top right hand corner, go to "My Images", select "Submitted Images," and hit Update, then you can see the status of your submitted images. When an image changes from orange Submitted to green Featured, it means that image has now become visible in Latest and Hot.

It will be near the top of Latest when it features, and then descend as more memes by other users become featured (Latest is roughly in chronological order by feature time).

It will be much harder to find in Hot, since it won't get near the top of that section until it gets votes and comments etc (apart from the mods, nobody knows for sure the exact formula that determines how an image rises in the Hot section, but it seems to be some combination of votes and comments on the image factored over time, and possibly views are a factor too).

But if the meme says Featured in green writing under Your Images, it's visible somewhere in Latest and Hot. Hope that helps.

Just keep in mind that if you make an image on an original image (ie, one you upload) that's not already a site template, it will normally take longer to approve for featuring, since a mod will have to physically look at it before it gets approved.

If it's a site template, and you've just put words on it, it can feature automatically without personal review by the mods (with a program that either flags it for a mod to review or features it NSFW based on certain key words you might have used).

So, images made on site templates normally feature much more quickly than those made on original images.

Wow, great info. Thank you!

It was a custom job... political.

After a few days, still at 'Submitted' status. Maybe a moderator didn't like it.

What can I do with it now? Anything?

I think the basic options are a) give up, or b) remake it and submit it on another day with slight changes (maybe you'll get a different mod, or maybe the changes will mean it's perceived to be less problematic).

Or you could download the image, and post it on another social media site.

Another thing that some users do on imgflip with memes that don't feature is to message other users with the link and ask them to upvote it (the idea is that if a meme has upvotes on it, it's more likely to get featured).

I'm not a big fan of this approach (it starts to get old pretty quick when people keep posting links for you to upvote), but some users do it.

Note: if it's been more than 24 hours without featuring, I would give up on it ever featuring whether it has any upvotes or not, but maybe that's just me.

More great info.

Hmm... what to do...?

I'll try changing it.

Wait... do we know when (and what time zone) they change shifts?

Thank you again! :-)

I don't know about the shift changes lol. I meant just try different times/days to see your luck.

However, I've had some success submitting original images in the afternoon on weekdays (like 2 or 3pm Eastern Standard Time). No guarantees, but it seems like they generally feature quicker then.

Ha! You gotta be kidding. ;-)

Nothing against McDonalds, except the service. But that's another story.

Merely a clown. A clown reporting the news. I wanted someone recognizable, and there he was.

Actually, I did a short McDonalds series. One of Three.

One of Three? Hmm. Sounds like a Star Trek character. Gives me an idea...
