And yes, I am aware I have done this. I will stop, as I realize it only serves no purpose. I will go through and delete all memes that I made using this tacit, because they are not good memes and to show I believe in what I say.

Nope, I agree with you sir. You can tell some people are either reaching or their humor is drier than a cottonball in the Mojave...

This is so true.
I really only upvote memes that make me laugh (and it's super easy to make me laugh) but now people are using that tactic and i miss when imgflip was just only jokes and not points.
Heck! It took me a year to get to 4000 something points and most of those were from funny comments and not from this new tactic.

I agree. I understand new users trying to reach the point requirement so they cam meme in comments. But most established users should not make that their main material. It is not entertaining. That being said, if one has this as their goal there is a "begging for up votes" stream. You won't get any major ton of up votes over there because it really is just fun. But people who are doing that should just go post there and return the up votes to all the other ones who post there.

The content here has changed so much the past few months. Many of the best memers are no longer meming, some have deleted altogether. We have a changing season basically. I also see some newer users who are very creative and very deserving of the front page.

Yea. I honestly have not been on the site nearly as much as I used to (mostly due to reddit) and because the memes are just... weird. Not nearly as entertaining as they used to be.

Yesterday I noticed as I was going through the fun stream that there were a TON of new users. Like with accounts they had just made. So they are pouring in. Maybe they will make a stream and all flock to it.

Hopefully. I mean, these people are too lazy to come up with good memes, but too ashamed to go join the "begging for upvotes" stream...

I am all up in the begging for up votes stream. It's no gold mine, but I find a lot of fun to be had in the comments there. I have a habit of running around and up voting people's first page of memes, and that is how I discovered all these new folks. I don't know. This is where we get the difference in age and life experience swirling.

Amen. In my very short meme-making career, I am proud to say I have never used this tactic. I'm not saying that you are terrible in you have, just that I personally have not used it and I am glad I haven't. Sure, I don't get many up votes, but I don't care.

Exactly. The whole point is to make memes, not get points.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING! the fact that more and more memes can get on the front page with tactics like "this meme won't get any upvotes" or "i bet this meme won't get 500 upvotes" is concerning, as it means we are becoming less focused on making people laugh/happy, and more focused on gaining meaningless internet points. memes are supposed to make us laugh. upvotes are only a way of showing you enjoyed the meme. it just so happens you gain points when it becomes upvoted.
hotkeys: D = random, W = upvote, S = downvote, A = back
