Hi Andrew,

Are reposts... OK? As a noob, I've not had time to form an opinion yet.

Seems there are different TYPES of reposts...

There's the kind where it was someone else's material, knowingly or unknowingly, and the kind where it was the same author at a different time.

If it's OK, then I'll just start reposting my own and I won't have to think up clever sh!t anymore. And it will be a relief... trying to come up with interesting material everyday can be a challenge... but just [email protected]@K at what the best people do! Everyday.

Anyway... under what circumstances are reposts OK, if any?

Thank you,

Noob

Great question! Thanks for asking :) First, I'll say I think the definition of meme is fairly universal.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme

Memes get passed around on the internet.

Next I'll say it's my opinion there isn't a clear definition of what a repost is. Repost means different things to different people. During my time here I have seen a spectrum of opinions, (not actual quotes, some quote marks are for reading ease) from "I used that image for a meme once, so you can't use it and every meme that uses that image is a repost" to "my meme had that caption, so you can't use anything close to my caption" to "I saw that once on the internet, so it's a repost" to the more realistic (actual quote here) "The whole point of making memes is to get them reposted. That's the point of making a meme. Reposts are foundational to what memes are. If your meme has not been reposted yet, it's not yet even a meme."

Next, I'd like to say it's my opinion its impossible for you repost something of your own creation. I call those resubmissions.

Ask a hundred different users what a repost is, you are likely to get some variation in the answer. I've noticed a lot of people who will call repost have said things like "I don't have time to explain what a repost is" "I'm done talking about this with you" Sometimes they have actually posted stuff on imgflip that meets their definition of repost. Talk about hypocracy!

What your definition of a repost is and how or when you do it and how you conduct yourself is up to you. There is a Conduct section in the imgflip.com/terms

There is a comment on an old meme from back when I was a noob that completely reflects my philosophy on reposts. " ...there's nothing that I like better than to see people repost my memes or post my comments as memes. It's the highest form of respect possible on a meme site, and I wouldn't want anyone to discourage people from doing that."

Help yourself to any of my comments or creations if you like. Hope this all helps you with your own position and style. I like alot of imgflippers, some only make original content, some are a mix of "reposts" and original content, a few who say they are 100 percent "repost".

PS, I'm not sure who is a bigger fan of doMima, me or you :)

Wow.

Thank you for taking the time to put that one together. I liked the wiki part and the imgflip TOS. Will be re-reading that when I get a chance.

I especially liked the quote you saw as a noob. I think this will be my position going forward. It makes perfect sense.

You deserve more than a single upvote from me... but as you know, that's not possible. So tonight, I will toast you as I relax with a special beverage.

Thank you again, kind sir.

But I ALWAYS get defensive when people mention doMima. She's mine!

And where were you when doMima said goodbye... imgflip.com/i/27jslv
... out, making your front page memes again? Mm hmm, thought so!

If you're gonna claim the coveted title of Biggest doMima Fan, you'll have to top this...

I'll have to put my thinking cap on for some doMima comments and maybe a doMima tribute meme. Please feel free to ask if you have other questions about the site. There's no FAQ page for imgflip, but alot of Q and A memes are out there and I remember where most of them are.
