So, I know you guys probably don't know me. You probably dont even care that I'm writing this. I'm just gonna go out and say it. Imgflip SUCKS right now. The worst. The old imgflip was great, non political memes that were actually clever and funny. Now it's just "So tell me why I shouldn't be able to own a gun?" "Donald Trump is the best!" "The leftist sucks!" "Fake news is bad." We all know this. But believe it or not, its not funny or clever when you post one of your stupid political memes. People will feel strongly about it and upvote, not even really caring about what it says. Maybe I'll check in sometimes and see if it's not all political sh*t, but it seems like this is just the new Imgflip is, and it's just not nearly as enjoyable as it was Late 2016 and Early 2017. I've been real inactive for a long time now, so I figured I'd just make an announcement about it. I dont care what rebuttal you have, and I don't care how that makes me sound. Imgflip is NOT good to me.

Is This A Pigeon Meme | POLITICAL RANT IS THIS A MEME? | image tagged in memes,is this a pigeon | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I agree there is too much American politics on here. I am Canadian, so it is not even that relevant to me. I disagree that it is recent though. I have been here for almost 4 years. The absolute worst was the primaries leading up to 2016. It got a bit better after the election. I take a break occasionally for the same reason. It just gets too much. I found that after the last break, I don't come on here nearly as much.

I do not post any political memes ... at least I don't think they are. I tried to comment on them and then you get a wave of trolls who attack you. So I try to stay away from that and just do it for myself and a few friends who joined. I post stuff each day as something creative to do and if people like it or not I don't care. I almost quit right after I started but I found that I was doing it for me, not others. I just pass by most political stuff or I know people who don't post it, I click their name and comment and up vote their stuff. Please do not quit for the people who are negative be different and keep going. That is my 2 cents. Peace brother.

I remember making an Unpopular Opinion Puffin meme that was about complaining about way too much politics(and in fact,it was the first meme of mine that hit the top of the front page),and you,my dear friend,nailed it when describing what I have against them!

The gun laws are the worst,with immigrations right behind.I can't find a single page without a meme like:"Why shouldn't I be able to own a gun?","Keep the second amendment","The gun laws are bad" WE F**KING GET IT!

Hell,pretty much any conservative meme is very unoriginal,uncreative and annoying(and let me state for a record that IMGFlip has WAYYYYYYYYYYYY tooo much f**king conservatives)"Liberals are retarded","Trump is awesome","F**k illegal aliens","Patriotism FTW"(there ones really disgust me),"MAGA","I have a right to own a gun","The election wasn't hacked"(and they say this much after the election and as if election actually meant something),"Abortion is murder",jeez...

And wanna know the worst thing? There is barely any difference between liberals and conservatives at all.Both of them are effectively exposing each other's bullshit,and both are miserably failing to realize their own bullshit.And that is also one of the biggest problems with politics in general.There is not a single ideology that is full of flaws and bullshit

It's even more annoying when you don't even live in America and couldn't care less about gun laws,immigrations,Republican vs Democrat bullshit,Trump vs Hilary bullshit,Liberal vs Conservative bullshit and a ton of other American Bullshit(George Carlin did an excellent job on handling this last topic)

So,that's all I have to say on politics.I am saddened to see you leaving,because IMGFlip has a great shortage of funny and creative memers,and you are definitely one of them.We shall meet again,Jesus_Milk.Until then,may the Metal Gods take care of you

Really late on this, but I appreciate it. I may return soon because I am seeing a lot of change going around. Right now, I only see 2 political memes on the front page. I mean, it's a step from the previous 5 that it would've been 5 months ago. And you took the words right out of my mouth, WE GET YOUR OPINIONS! They're just as bad as everything they're arguing against, shoving their opinions down our throats. Trump is good, Liberals are bad, Blah blah blah this is what I think! Yeah, we couldn't tell based on the other 9 memes you made about that exact same topic. I never upvote any of it, even the abortion ones, which I STRONGLY agree with. But other people may not, so I don't upvote it. Their are still a lot of flaws with this wonderful community, but it IS seeming to improve. And I hope it keeps up that way, godammit!

Sorry if that was repetitive, I'm just venting at this point lol. I appreciate the compliment. You are certainly another great memer to, and I hope to see more of you in the future.

Thanks a lot,dude,it's wonderful hearing something like this from you

I am quite less active on IMGFlip now compared to the activity in my earlier days,mostly because my creativity has reached it's limit.I do,however,plan to change my style,and make my memes more dark-humored,morbid and disturbing(which,considering that I am a metalhead,and George Carlin fan,should not be difficult at all to create)

Yes,the community does seem to improve little by little,which is great.So maybe I get a little more active in the future,but for now,I shall rest,and see where everything goes from here onwards

I'm European and i don't pay much attention to memes about guns and American policy. I find some liberal memes funny and Trump memes uninteresting. I don't care if the memes that make the front page are mostly political, i'm having a good time with all the other memes that i find funny or interesting and there are a lot of that and there are more out there and some of them don't get upvoted. What i'm trying to say is that i choose what is good for me or not and don't let political memes affect me. Imgflip is not good for me for other reason, because it distracts me from getting any work done. ;)

The only way to get rid of political memes is to get everyone to downvote them. Doesn't matter which side of the spectrum it's on, if it's just a complaint, rant, or, what most are, just a snipe, downvote it, even if it's on page one.It doesn't take a lot of downvotes to do it. If it's not entertaining, it shouldn't be here, and it really doesn't belong on page one.

I try not to get political but I do on occasion. closest I've come to that in a long time is https://i.imgflip.com/2d1y7v.jpg Even then, I at least tried to interject humor into an otherwise volatile subject: double standards.

I'd rather see the political posts disappear, but the only way that will happen is if they continually get downvoted back to submitted status. Not doing so is a form of approval for them

I totally agree with y'all. I once suggested a separate section for them like how we have pie charts, gifs, nsfw. That way we can avoid them if we want. Those who fail to tag their memes political don't get featured or I don't feel as bad downvoting them. Just a thought. Meme on!

It wouldn't take much, 100 users to downvote political memes would keep them down, but until then, they'd be showing up in the feeds.

When you look at political memes, you'll realize that their mostly trolls trying to bait others. When confronted, they resort to name calling. Then they make more vitriolic memes. The downvote is the best way to handle these trolls that have ruined your experience on Imgflip. If enough real people, those that actually post and try to be entertaining, started downvoting the memes into oblivion, that doesn't stop their right to free speech. It just tells them their ideology isn't welcome in this forum.

If you don't like something, the downvote is there for that reason. A good example is the number of atheists here. You will rarely see them post anything anti-religious. Not because they are afraid of downvotes, but they choose to keep this place entertaining. They have reached their opinions through a lot of study and could back up everything they say: they often do so in the comments section when a political post turns to religion. Still, they are more polite than the political trolls. Trolls don't deserve any respect, so downvote at will.

I've caught many of your memes on my visits here and enjoyed them ... you're a good memer and I, too, hope you don't delete...in the same token, I can't say I blame you for thinking about it, because I've thought about it, too. The political crap does get a little long on the tooth after awhile, and there are some other memes that the moderators really shouldn't let through. I've been on here a lot less frequently as well, but instead of deleting my account I just decided to put Imgflip a lot lower on the priority scale. So, I join the others in saying "please don't delete" ... and hopefully I, with others, will see another good meme from you before too long :-) just don't let the idiots win by quitting, 'k?

I did not expect the overwhelming support of this meme. Let me make something clear: It's not because of the personalities here. I think all of you are great people. Its just the memes don't really interest me anymore right now. I hope it will become like it was a while back, but for now, I am taking a break. Also, just to be clear, I am not deleting my account. I would never. I'm sure I'll return sometime. Maybe check in a few times, make a few memes, and enjoy the great personalities around here.

I wouldn’t blame you. I remember the yoga pants trend, which I liked lol, but it got to be more and more body parts oriented on here. Several people walked away and I understand why. I realize that current events play into meme ideas, and the political news is non stop, so I expect those memes.
Ever since the election, I’ve been on Facebook a lot less because of the political crap. I avoid it. I’m not going to convert anyone, and they sure as hell ain’t changing me, so why bother?
I hope you see reasons to come back :-)
Walking away is ok, just don’t delete your account!
Peace :-)

I know all to well how you feel, and do not blame you one bit . I've been in and out if this site more than a d*** at the mustang ranch, for some of the same reasons. Just a suggestion though, ( I learned this the hard way) DONT delete your account! Log out and keep it on the back burner for awhile. When you're ready to check in, the account is always there. If you're not feeling it, log out and check in again some other time. Those that know you and like you will be here when you come back.

The thing I hate is a lot of the memes that get LOADS of views are just JUNK. Not political, not funny. I KNOW that a number of my memes are a LOT funnier than many of the ones I see on the Hot list for DAYS, but mine get maybe 60-90 views.

Other people have noted that they took memes they created on Imgflip and put them on Imgur and got 100 TIMES as many views, often WAY MORE.

The reason I keep doing memes is that I also post them to Facebook and I recently started also posting them to Pinterest. If it were just Imgflip I certainly wouldn't bother.

A lot of that has to do with users, many of them paid political bots upvoting themselves with numerous alts, and also downvoting the legit stuff. I wish the site would crack down on the use of alts and do away with downvoting. Then views and upvotes would be much more organic and fair

I feel ya. I get sick of all the same old political stuff, and most of it doesn't bother to be funny and is just nastiness and bashing of others. But I still find the site a great deal of fun. There are a lot of funny non political memes on here, and the secret is to just tune out and ignore the rest. I've made lots of great friends here who make me laugh and vice versa. The key is to finding those people and interacting with them as a group of friends, and ignoring the rest. Take care

Have to agree with you. I think because I submit some anti-conservative memes that seem to go nowhere, usually, I have been put on someone's shit list because my non-political memes also go nowhere. I don't post unless I think the meme is worthwhile, and lately I don't post much at all due to the climate of imgflip. I'll keep the account so I can still generate but my posts will probably decrease. Enjoy your hiatus and know I have enjoyed your memes!

Honestly? It was worse when I started in 2015. It goes in cycles. I just ignore what I don't like. It's up to the individual user to make what they can out of imgflip. What might suck for one will be fine for another with a discretionary scroll finger...

H! :)
I'm relatively new here. I first started to make memes, <admittedly mostly political>, just for fun to show friends and colleagues. I didn't even know anything about posting them here for votes. I have since discovered it, and it's fun when someone appreciates your "art".

That said, there are many, MANY topics here that I don't care for, or, even understand. Fortnite / PUBG is one of them. Do I complain that they shouldn't be allowed to be posted? Nah. I just use my mouse and scroll down a few inches. I would argue that Politics is a MUCH bigger subject than Fortnite.

Travel is my hobby and passion. I've been to 60+ countries and 49 US states. I post on FlyerTalk a TON - - more than 14,000 posts! <same screenname> When I see a post that doesn't interest me, or, even a negative post replying to my post, does it stop me from posting!?!? NOOOOO!!! I just take it all in stride. Maybe they could have a separate nook for political memes, just as FlyerTalk has MANY different forums for different travel issues, but, that would probably lead to too many topics to choose from.
Also, the amount of spelling and grammar errors, is astounding here! It drives me a little nutz! I can't understand how someone could take the time to make a meme, and not even spell the words correctly that make your meme funny! But, again, I don't complain.

If you truly enjoy making fun memes, why worry about what other people post. Just follow your passion, and use your talent! Don't let what other people post affect your art.
Thanx for reading! DT :)

I said check the comments if you care. If you don’t care, downvote and move on. I shared my personal opinion, and never said to stop making political memes, I just said I don’t like them. No need to make a rude comment about it. Keep memein’ :)

I didn't make a rude comment.

And as for your comments, I did read them. But there's really no need to even complain about users who post political memes. You're running away from a site because there are a lot of political memes. I didn't even see this meme of yours until another memer linked it on one of my memes stating that my political memes are making other users leave this site.

First, it is considered rude and in bad taste to link other memes to someone's meme in the comments. I don't normally have a problem with that, but this one was linked (not your fault, since you didn't link it) to my meme and the user who linked it was accusing my memes as the reason so many other users are leaving the site.

Second, if you don't like the political memes, you can downvote and move on, or don't say anything at all. It's your right to complain about certain memes, but it really isn't necessary. It's like having all the butthurt celebrities saying they'll move to Canada if Trump is elected, but not really doing it when he is. They just complain all the time.

And lastly, as I stated to the user who linked your meme and subsequently got me involved in this, I had no problem with you and have upvoted many of your memes. I still don't have a problem with you and was just giving my opinion on this. It wasn't rude, it was an honest opinion.

As for you leaving the site, well, I wish you luck. Political memes are everywhere.

To me, this looks like a rude comment. Making random assumptions, I’m not a cuck, I’m not a liberal, I don’t whine to everyone about it, I made a simple meme stating my opinion, saying check the comments if you care, which you clearly don’t, so you could just leave this meme. Also, I really am taking a break, just looking at all the great people in the comments, being nice and agreeing with me. So I’d say it was a rude comment, but I appreciate your response, I like hearing all opinions
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
Well, that one could be taken as a rude comment, yes. I believe I made that comment before I followed the link to your meme. But you also have to look at it from my side of this. For the past several months, there have been a lot of users complaining about political memes. They continue to complain on my memes about political memes. I am getting tired of listening to their complaints. What many users don't seem to understand is that memes aren't just meant to be funny. Memes are about anything you want them to be. And complaining about memes you don't like is pointless.

But this is the last you'll hear from me on this. It's pointless to fight about it.
reply
1 up, 1 reply
Well, even if it’s the last I’ll hear, I’ll still respond. And people don’t like your political memes because it’s getting annoying, not just from you, but from everyone. We get it, you all like trump, the left is bad, fake news exists, we should be able to own guns, we understand your opinion. Making 20 memes on the same subject won’t get your point across anymore. And this Imgflip, I think the main purpose of it is for the memes to be funny, I think we can at least say that.

Keep in mind that the folks from Imgflip DO read the memes.

Awhile back I complained about memes that are extremely long. About 2 days later suddenly the "SHOW MORE" bar showed up.

Another time I posted a meme "How to use multiple fonts." It basically said "Make a meme with the first font. Download it. Upload it as your own image. Add more text with a second font. Download it. Repeat. When you're done, put the various texts in small print with the font the same as the background color so it won't be visible. Save." A few days later the gear for multiple fonts showed up.

Actually -- this just gave me an idea for a meme!
