Coffee Soldier | HELP US FIGHT THIS EVIL ONE GOOD MEME AT A TIME | image tagged in coffee soldier | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I think it’s maybe youngsters just over copying the crap they’ve seen on various YT channels and trying to pass it of as their own & not being able to understanding how to be a creative user in a creative community.

Peace.

I think there's definitely some truth to that. It seems like lately it's been in abnormally high amounts.
Kind of makes me wonder if a bunch of kids got phones for Christmas and they're on here upvoting every piece of crap that comes up

It's one of those things that's funny sometimes, but the top pages are so saturated with it lately it stops being funny.
It's like when a little kid tells the same joke over and over all day long because a kid in his class laughed the first time

I’m glad this made front page!
There’s a lot of weird am wonderful algorithms at work I’m sure but sometimes like others have commented, I’ve gone through latest and there’s 6 pages of old memes with no views, I mean like months or even years old.
And my meme I’ve submitted is stuck in no mans land and I spent 30 minutes on it!
Perhaps we should start a forum dedicated to improving IMGflips features etc.

I actually just made a post about that too
Unfortunately, I don't see anything chaging anytime soon...it is the internet after all. I've already seen similar posts to this one pop up
I'm not sure how any of that stuff actually works anyway. For the most part, I've gotten better laughs reading comments than the actual posts.
Oh well, at the end of the day, it's all for our own entertainment

It's frustrating because there are so many kids on here posting cryptic crapola that only their friends in the gaming world might understand. That would be fine if they posted it in the gaming section and not all over the fun section. There seem to be no standards for what gets featured. Also, because I'm fairly new here, I wish someone could explain what constitutes a "view" --and how it is determined. I haven't figured out why some of my memes can get thousands of views, and others get maybe 15 views, when they are equally good memes. (I test them out on my Facebook friends beforehand to gauge their reaction!) My suspicion is that administrators are maybe knocking them down or limiting their circulation if they don't like the content? Let me know if I'm way off base here.

There's also a repost stream, yet the fun stream is clogged with reposts too. Much of the time, it's also kids who see something get popular so they all post the same thing ad nauseum. It does get frustrating because lately, a lot of reposts have been making it to the top pages and I don't mean just stuff that sounds familiar, I mean things that are image for image word for word copies of things I've seen at least a dozen times already within the last few weeks.
Views seem logical to me, it should just be the number of people who click on the page. I don't have any idea what determine's what's "hot" because I've seen posts with less views and upvotes over a longer period of time than some of mine.
The way it should be is people check out the Latest tab and comment on stuff they like. Problem is, I can only look at so many "My mom said..." or " UR Mom Gay, No U" posts before I give up and just comment on friends' stuff.
There are some people who never visit the latest tab. Some of them will upvote everything on there without regard, so I think that's a big contributor to seeing all the same stuff all the time

My memes are pretty crappy but I know what you mean. I get the feeling of dejavu every time I scroll through the latest. Nothing but gamer and YouTuber memes and the amount of reposts is ridiculous. The same people who post these memes are the ones who don't bother to upvote or comment on other people's posts.

I try to give the latest tab a good go at least once a day...I am able to find a diamond in among the turds here and there. Problem is, a lot of those comments go with no reply.

reply

The comments are definitely where I draw most of my laughs from for sure.
I think a good post can generate a lot of even better comments. What's beem frustrating lately is having to scour the comment sections for something good to reply to. Even a lot of these really popular ones had only a hanful of comments and even most of those were two people upvoting each other back and forth

No “they” log on at the wrong time. Ha. Our logging on doesn’t effect the top pages because those get there cause of comments right?

I meant checking the latest on the fun stream seems to go in waves. The real creative stuff I’ve seen tends to hit when all the grown ups come home from work. And the smart kids finish their homework.

Normally, I would say yes. For the most part things get popular because people are visiting back and forth commenting.
Some of these, though, have like 15k views and like 4 comments which leads me to think who the hell is even viewing these

I get it. I’ve been checking the all time leader board lately and seeing how creative a lot of stuff used to be I’m guessing a lot has changed. Still even though I’m new at this I can still tell that a lot of the posts are from young kids. Like I mentioned before I’ve starting to research people’s posts and their streams to see where the true art is hidden

Unfortunately that's why most people tend to stick with the same few users. It gets really annoying looking at some of the stuff on here.
I think Dash does a great job at finding the good stuff and getting exposure for those people. He's definitely part of the reason why I've had success here

Nah, it's been this way for a good while! And if you call them out on it, they simply delete their profile and make another one. My biggest gripe is the inability to simply post anything. Submit it, wait 10 hours, if "those who decide what's funny" like it, then it finally sees the light of day long after everyone has gone to bed lol! ;)

It's always been such a pain to have something you've ACTUALLY worked on and created sit in limbo (sometimes never featuring) while BLATANT reposts cover the first 6 pages.

That's actually what brought this on originally...my stuff hadn't even been featured and I'm going through pages of all the same things just to see if there's anything new and good.
I may as well been browsing the latest tab.
Some of these are getting 20-30k+ views.
I just don't get it

I just mainly stick to posting stuff to Instagram anymore. That way my stuff doesn't have to be critiqued to just get out of the gate. I can share all I want. If the same people that are allowing constant reposts are the same ones in charge of whether yours or mine feature, that might explain alot. LOL ;) I just come here periodically to check in with the few good folks left on here!

I am in total agreement with you. And yes, original memes rarely do well here, but that is human nature. We like the same story over and over again. Been that way for longer than we know. But don't give up. I try to post original memes quite often and most get a few upvotes and nothing more. The I post a throwaway meme that I expect to go nowhere and it gains more upvotes than the rest of mine combined.

If you are concerned with points and moving up the board try puns. Concerned with making what you think is a genuinely funny new joke, please do it. I love clever jokes even if most rarely get an upvote. (I think making people think is not a good thing here sad as that sounds)

I recently had to make up my mind about what kind of memes I was going to focus on and I decided that I want people to laugh. I will not post memes at call out others here or their choices. I want to laugh and I love this site for that. You have to be the person you want others to be. I want to be funny. :)

I agree with you about people liking the same thing over and over again, though.
Even on here there's usually a pretty good variety. It's only been the last couple weeks where I feel like the Hot tab was starting to resemble the Latest tab
