Colombo notes | MEME ETIQUETTE YOU SAY? HERE'S THE THING THOUGH | image tagged in colombo notes | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Meme etiquette not something where everyone agrees on the same style or approach. I learned a lot by watching a few top memers still here who I came to respect the most. This tips and tricks meme by ghostofchurch helped me when I was new. imgflip.com/i/1bc21u

I thought i was having an argument with one guy but it turned out, he said, that's just how everyone was in here. Offensive on purpose. Which I love. But I can't tell if I've really offended someone or if they're playing.

I can tell that a lot of people feel that people get offended to easily these days and so they will make memes that offend people just to watch the drama. I guess if somebody ever DOES get really offended they'll probably just end up staying away from all of your content or something, but that very rarely happens. People do love making anti-trans memes, and as a trans person that can be pretty rough but you learn to brush it off.

Captain Picard Facepalm Meme | SO MUCH TRANSPHOBIA ON THIS SITE | image tagged in memes,captain picard facepalm | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Yeah unfortunately this site is very hostile to the LGBT community. Kudos to you for not letting it run you off. There are a few of us here who are open minded though and just here to have fun :)

Honestly if people leave the site because of the general views that show up things aren't going to ever get better, so somebody has to pave the way.

Do you have specific questions regarding meme etiquette?

Am I supposed to respond with a meme when someone comments? Is the arguing in here just for fun or is it like everywhere else? Is it offensive to make purposefully offensive memes? That should be a good start. Lol. Thank for your help in advance.

Haha, well as far as responding to comments, using a meme or not is up to you. Using a meme usually will get a better response, and for every time it's upvoted you get 40 points instead of two for a type only comment. The most important thing is ALWAYS upvote someone's comments/responses to you so long as they are polite and not spam etc. It helps them get points and encourages them to comment more in the future. It's considered rude to not upvote a polite comment, and rude to comment on a meme or comment without upvoting the meme or comment, so long as it's polite and appropriate.

As far as arguing, it depends. Some is real arguing, but I'd say most is just playful banter between memers. Most of us like to push and prod each other to provoke a response, in a playful often sarcastic way. As for making offensive memes, as long as it's not racist or otherwise grossly obnoxious I'd say go for it as long as it's not personally offensive towards another memer.

Yeah obviously the point is to make memes, make others laugh, and laugh ourselves and make friends. But the points are a fun part of it too. The thing about points is the more you get, the more visible you and therefore you memes become, so more people then see them and can potentially enjoy them and comments etc. And it becomes a friendly competition among those of us on the leaderboard lol. I've been here about 18 months, and I'm not too far from two million points, and I'm #24 on the all time leaderboard, and have been sitting about #4-5 on the 7 day leaderboard for a while now, and it's made a huge difference in how many views and upvotes my memes get. Anyone can work their way up on the leaderboard if they stay active, make decent memes, and most importantly to comment frequently on as many memes as you can and make friends that way. Then your friends will start following you and upvoting you regularly. :-)
