Roll Safe Think About It Meme | CAN'T REPOST A MEME IF YOU DON'T REPOST A MEME | image tagged in memes,roll safe think about it | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I try n post original, do my thing, this is why I dont post so much anymore. Try n keep the quality up. Lately alot are just trash by punks. How many "ur mom gay" or fortnite crap memes we gotta sit thru. Dont get me started on the non sensical grammarless tripe being featured.

I've done reposts in the past, but have given credit to those I know for a fact created the meme. If I don't know who created the original, I never deny it is a repost if called out on it.

I've been on this site for over 5 years and it has definitely changed for the worse. The big changes started sometime in early 2017.

Fake profiles, threats users make toward other users, point gouging... Now it's lame theme weeks that have already been done before and the memes are the same crap.

On the front page there are 14 total memes and I've counted at least 7 reposts. I'm fine with reposts for the most part, but when they've been done before over a dozen times and almost each time they make the front page, it's not funny.

Yes, and the bad grammar memes that look like they were made by a 7 year old. It's fine if you can't spell or use proper grammar, but when you can't spell or use proper grammar and your meme makes the front page...c'mon.

I like your tagline. I was wondering if you might be up for the challenge of putting this template I made to good use? I have only ever used it as a comment template.

I think this is an oversimplification. Sometimes I laugh harder at reposts than original memes, so I don't think reposts are the problem per se. However, sometimes it does seem like there's a bit much of the voting/commenting on already popular users' posts, which can make it relatively harder for memes by lesser known users to get traction. Not that it's wrong for people to upvote users they like, but if people diversified and checked Latest every now and then for memes by users they don't normally upvote, that would be good too. At least that's how I see it. But people are just going to do what they want.

I see what you're saying. I don't really have a problem with most reposts, but the reposts by users that try and take credit for the meme or the ones that repost a meme where the original is still on the front couple of pages...I have issues with.

What about this kind of thing though - imgflip.com/i/2d4k9w ?

It seems like a copy of a meme that's on the top of the front page at the moment - imgflip.com/i/2d1yk1 - but in the bottom caption you can see that they did it to put their own spin on it (or to make fun of the other one, or a mixture of both).

I don't have a problem with that. It really wouldn't be a repost if the caption is different or it's roasting another popular meme.

Oh yeah. That's not very classy.
