The site never really worked, but now it is worse than ever. Originality is punished at every turn. And then factor in making an outstanding political meme, and 90% of people don't see it. Ok, you don't like politics? Not someone to read the news? FIne- what have you against gaming? So, you make an original and outstanding meme which makes an oblique reference to a video game, and submit it, but it's rejected in fun. Ok, submit it in gaming... makes front page for a week, gets 4 views and 1 upvote. This site is such a bag o' shite, but they actually managed to make it worse.

The Devil's Seal of Approval,,, | OTHER SITES HAVE WHITE BLOCK FONTS IN STATIC CAPTION BOXES AND NO FRONT PAGE  MEME THREADS     TO WHINE ABOUT YOU'RE WELCOME TO GO TO ANY OF | image tagged in the devil's seal of approval | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Upvotes, comments, views - that's how memes make it to the Front Page here. Memers have no one to blame but themselves. Fadists, sycophants, and people congragating on memes where their friends are, just like anything in life.

Also like anything in life, you throw people a pile of plain crackers to eat, they gobble it up, no complaints. You go out of their way to please them with a four star three course meal for free, and the unappreciative asswipes opt to b!tching for more instead of showing a little gratitude. Boo hoo, not every single Dear Diary Facebook Status meme self indulgent centers of the universe post or the stolen memes they pretend are their very own original genius works of art make it.

THAT'S the problem with this site, it's too good to people. Bite the hands that bleeds, when they should just get scrotums shoved in their mouths to shut up and swallow like thye would get anywhere else.

The majority of users only scroll Hot and upvote wayyy too generously. This means that once a submission gets enough traction to get in the top few pages of Hot, it's a lot more likely to do well than memes only visible farther down. It's like it picks up its own momentum.

I don't have a problem with "rest in peace" memes and I dontneven have a problem with them making the front page, but I think if they make the front page, they should look as if they had thought put into them. I also have a problem with seeing good memes not get seen and generic memes get all the attention. I wish there was a way that the memes make it to the front page based on how good the meme is, not based on the order it happens to be posted on the "latest."

It’s not always ‘FUN’ in the fun section.
Maybe imgflip needs a new section for memorials/tributes.

Peace.

Another section?

I totally agree! One of my memes didn't make it to the front page, and I blame those memorial/tribute memes!! D-:< They should add a section for those so we don't get pushed down by non-fun memes!
reply

But that would bring tragedy to a fun meme site. Every section is fun to some extent so a section dedicated to a sore topic would encourage that. I think the mods should just be more strict about featuring "fun" memes.

Some absolute garbage reaches the front page while funny original memes languish 20 pages down the list. In the end It's a case of making memes for your own entertainment, if they are popular, all well and good, but if they're not ....... meh!

j/k. I feel what you're saying. I just think they'll either do nothing to change this, or just create a new 'Stream' for this type of thing.

You have to remember the typical imgflip user, especially over in politics.

That said, the fact that imgflip gives wide berth to speech is amazing.

Depends on which "RIP" meme you're referring to. One of them had a decent pun, but one right below it just said "rip 1922-2018."

But really? It's Stan Lee. Do you really begrudge a few 100 upvotes? Stan the Man deserves it imo.

Original memes, unless very brief, mean people have to think. No matter how funny the concept (and some of yours are very good) they tend not to do well. Human nature I guess

That meme you linked was actually a good meme but the generic "RIP" memes with no punchline don't deserve shit.

Exactly. U can make a great original meme that is actually funny, but some rip meme makes front page. People are trying to force their problems on people to turn this site into Facebook. Now I am not against rip memes, in fact I always say something nice in the comments, but enough is enough. There comes a point when no one cares.
