Awesome! Wish there were more than ONE green arrow.

So I guess the jokes on us with your repost that's over 3 years old... You could have at least searched for something to repost that grandma's on facebook aren't tired of seeing. If you need ideas search google images until you think of a caption for a pic. Or you could comment on some memes you like that works for me a lot. Heck Dashhopes even has a stream for free meme ideas you could use.

Please... for the love of all that's holy stop putting memes on here that make this site look like it's out of touch with the rest of the internet. It can't really feel all that great to make the front page with something you deserve absolutely no credit for...

But what exactly is bad about the meme?
reply
9 ups, 2 replies
The meme is fine that's not the issue. The issue is having memes from years ago representing the front page of imgflip. Say somebody checks out our site for the first time ever. They see this meme on the front page they like and post it on facebook and text it to people. Then people reply and they realize they just looked like a normie for reposting something that came out years ago. You think the next time they want a meme they will come here to get it?

It's not about individuals or points or any of that nonsense. It's not even about me having done this for years and seeing the same memes over and over and over.

It's about having a site that viewers can trust to have original content. It's about gaining new viewers that will increase the chances of every single one of us going viral. It's about that button up top saying create not copy and paste.

It may appear as though I am picking on people or am jealous I don't care. I've gone viral with hundreds of thousands of views. You can google meme characters and some of my work pops up now and then on the first page. I've won photoshop competitions and earned the spot of 4th on the leaderboard here with nothing but original content.

The only thing I have to prove to anybody around here is that I will be calling out reposters every time I see them no matter who posts it. If people can't think of something themselves they belong on facebook reposting the same crap over and over like the rest of the normies. This is a site for creating memes where people who enjoy creating things can find others who do as well to learn from each other. Anybody wanting to do that has always been welcome here. You don't have to be good you just have to try.

I've kept my mouth shut too long and watched a lot of great memers and just great people in general leave because of it. Time for some spring cleaning around here.

Well I've had a website I liked before lose traffic and then just be gone one day before. There are a lot of memes out there and a lot of places to share them. It's simply not a sustainable system without something that makes you stand apart. I can remember not all that long ago when the top pic on the front page got 20-30 thousand views. We've kept the upvotes high meaning we still have users. Our viewer or fan base if you will is dwindling and that's not good for ad revenue.

If reposts were truly harmless to a sites potential I doubt it would be such a big deal to post one on sites much larger than this one. Yes I have the flu and too much time on my hands, but I believe I have a valid point as well.

We have also lost quite a few. I have to admit getting frustrated after searching through images for ideas to make something original, and posting it only to see the front page consist of 5 memes about not getting upvotes and 3 or 4 reposts. The point whoring has also gotten out of control. Users not reading other comments or upvoting exchanges they've joined, just posting a canned upvote and moving on to the next.

Yeah the group of people doing an amazing comment chain has all but died. In fact being online at the same time as somebody you are commenting on so you get a reply back is rare anymore. I'm guessing but I believe a majority of the top 50 are gone. Now you get facebook conversations around a few random comment memes.

Man I can remember being on a meme and having 4 chains or more going on above and below the one I was a part of lol. It'd take a minute to read all the comments on one of Ray's memes, but you wanted to read them because they were all funny. Guess Ray got the last word in after all. He said it wasn't the points it was that he loved it all that time to all those haters. Nothing says the fun kept me here more than the points than walking away from an account with that much popularity behind it.

I'm not getting anywhere with that link. But yeah, so many comment strings were hilarious and added a lot to the creativity. There's still a few that like the banter, but nowhere near as many. Take this one here for instance, he has all these comments, and hasn't responded to anyone except you because you hurt his butt. Not one reply.
3 ups
Yeah I don't think any of us realized at the time how lucky we were to be a part of it. Commenting has become posting a pic with an upvote in it somewhere real fast then moving on to the next meme whether they like it or not so they can make points. Right before I left for a couple weeks last time I had gone through the latest pages and commented on 37 memes. Not 37 in a row 37 I liked and had a funny comment for. I didn't receive a reply at all that day, used to be comments were wanted much more than upvotes. Now people are numbed by the flood of thoughtless ones.

It feels to me like the focus is now on math instead of creating humor. It's too bad because it used to be a great place to learn how to make people laugh. You can't take your points from here and impress people on other sites with them. I do take what I learned from here and use it to make other people laugh on sites though.

That link is to the top 30 meme sites based on traffic and such. Crazy shit I didn't even think there could be 30 meme sites. Imgflip didn't make the list at all, 30 other sites with more viewers than this one and people are making a bunch of alt accounts to appear like they have made it here. Maybe that's why the mods ignore us completely. I've definitely never got the impression that they care if any of us are here at all.

I've always had this intense feeling of loyalty towards this site. Mainly from the times we have been talking about and the fun friendly atmosphere that permeated the landscape. I've come to realize that loyalty has very little to do with this actual site. Or at least the site as it is now with the majority of people that made it fun all day now probably on one of those 30 other sites lol.

There are still great people here don't get me wrong. I do still enjoy time here it's just not enough by itself anymore. I would love to get back to how things were somehow. Hell I haven't even seen Socrates in a long time and he used to never miss a single meme on the latest pages. Things either evolve or die standing still. Sometimes I wonder if eventually this site will be 10 people with tons of alts each just fooling each other into believing they are doing something...

He was a great ambassador for the site, his lower participation probably has a lot to do with it. Not that he's to blame for anything, no one could keep that pace indefinitely and those shoes are hard to fill.

Yes I have always felt like a cheap imitation of him when I tried to help new users like he did. I've helped my share and a lot of people now know how to photoshop at least a little because of me. I took that long break though and spent time trying to find new places where I'm the noob. What I wanted was something like this used to be, what I found was an entirely new set of challenges to stoke the fire of my creativity. A fire I hadn't realized had burned down to embers because while I was still creating stuff to submit, I'd already given up on anything I made making me as happy as the stuff I made when I had no idea what I was doing.

There is something very satisfying about venturing into a larger pond and being excepted because they like your stuff. Even a man out amongst the stars keeps his eye on the place he can land safely. That doesn't mean it's better to have never left home by any means ;)

Look I'm not trying to get in a fight or anything, but I really don't think you guys are painting an accurate picture of me when you talk about me like I help new users etc. That was never my intent. If I see memes I like, I upvote them and if I want to give it something extra, I'll put a comment or upvote gif on it. Or if people don't know something about the site and I know it and it's easy to explain, I'll mention it, just like practically any user would. But I'm not going out of my way to help individual users. In fact sometimes I am a complete jerk to people. I'm really just here for the memes. I'm not here for making connections to other users, or to be seen as helpful or anything else.

Sorry if this comment is irrelevant to the larger topic you guys are talking about, but since you mentioned me I felt like I should say something.

Yeah that's exactly right. Who needs that feeling of accomplishment from earning something based on your own merit. I'd much rather fake my way through life entirely without ever facing a single challenge.

It's just like I tell my son, never try to do anything that might be hard if you can figure out a way to reap the benefits without participating. In fact don't even think for yourself if somebody is willing to do it for you. Sure he may be in diapers until he's 26 but more power to him for getting somebody to wipe his ass that long!

I told you not to take it personal but here you are jimmies all rustlin' unable to get over me posting the truth on your meme. You're out of your league son... take your ball and go practice in your backyard a bit... then this may offer more of a challenge than a repost....

Honestly I am laughing my ass off that you think that has anything to do with you :) If your repsot gained you any fans they sure aren't showing it on your comments are they? I'd be almost embarrassed for you if my emotions were involved in this at all.

You got caught reposting, got all butthurt when I called you on it, then had me pwn you so completely that your own comments are low rated on your own reposted front page meme for all to see. Why would I have any anger towards you at all?

Oh, now I see what this is really all about. You're upset because my original meme is about to break 300 upvotes and in your entire history with imgflip (I just checked back 3 months), you've not even come close to 300 upvotes. BWHAHAHAHAHA
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
Yeah man you nailed it, I am so completely and totally jealous of somebody having a meme do good on imgflip, that they reposted lmao! You went back three months huh? You do realize there are other sites than this one yes? I hate to break it to you but imgflip isn't exactly at the top of the list for meme sites. Of course if you tried to post this weak ass repost anywhere else they wouldn't let it go through. For one it has the old impact font that will instantly make sites like reddit discard it as outdated. Of course it being a repost the mods would most likely mute your ass just for trying it.

You ain't viral kid, not even close, break 100,000 views with something you made and you would be close. You don't want your name attached to this if it went viral though. You think I'm not a nice guy for calling you out? You are completely clueless about what a normie you are it's astounding!

Could you have a more boring predictable response? I don't care enough to explain anything else to you.

There is no challenge here, unless it is to see how much time I can waste doing something I know will never amount to anything.

It took me a minute to find your reply there sport. You have low rated comments on your own front page meme! You ever get that feeling like maybe you bit off more than you can chew and should just bow out gracefully? No you don't because that b**ch should have been screaming at you not to mess with Jying.
