Funny one! They should make a theme week just for Star Wars pick-up line fails.

"They"...?

That wouldn't have occurred to me about making an ongoing connection between Star Wars and bad pick-up lines, for a theme week. But if you start one, I will try to think of some. ;-)

I always thought moderators created theme weeks, but can anyone?

A theme week can be made by any user anytime they want. Basically, you just start doing the theme week, and then people either join in or don't. Some fail, but some work really well.

There's a couple of strategies I've noticed people do to make it less likely that the week will go unnoticed:

1. They ask a more well-known user to participate. Since more people look at memes by well-known users, this helps publicize the week.

2. They submit memes in advance of the week, announcing the dates, and telling people it's going to happen. Again, this helps publicize it.

Neither of those steps are, strictly speaking, necessary, but I've seen people do them.

Oh, well thanks for the info :) btw, how would one go about contacting another user for such a thing?

Well you could just put a comment on one of their memes about it. Although I would avoid putting a comment on a recent one, or on a meme they have in the top couple of pages of Hot (because if you do it that way, it looks like you're trying to use their position to draw people to your memes, which isn't great). So I would just scroll back a few pages in their profile and put it on one of their old memes, maybe.

Or, there's a way you can send a relatively "private" message to someone on imgflip. It involves writing a comment on the image page of one of their comment images they haven't submitted yet. If you want to go that way, then here's how you do that:

Step 1. Find a meme comment they've posted on one of their images, or someone else's. Right-click the image as if to save it to your device. At this point, the device should give it a default save name (something like "2h6kb2", for example).

Step 2. Type that code into your browser after "imgflip.com/i/" Then you can write a comment on that image that the user will see in their Notifications, but it will be harder for other users to see.

Hopefully that's not too confusing.
