I know, its a little bit of a friendly dig at Raydog as he currently has a "downvote" front page meme. Its not a big deal to me either way as I rarely used it except in cases of blatant douchebaggery. I often upvote points of view that differ from mine to hopefully encourage others to join in the commentary.

This means crappy memes will make it to the front page.

Nahhh front page is for memes that are getting the most action. Comments/likes, crappy ones will just end up on page 3758392 as long as comment wars don't start in the comments

Comments, no.

Once, an idiot posted 200 comments on his meme just to get it in the front page. It didn't work xD

I don't see how a crappy meme would make it to the front page even with no downvotes...if it is indeed crappy people aren't gonna upvote it...they may not get downvoted back to submission, but if noone upvotes it, the meme isn't gonna go anywhere.

PAH! Seriously? Of frontpage memes it is rare that one makes me actually chuckle and I have seen some on latest that have made me do that really unattractive, blurty BLAHA!!!! Sorry ... just truth.
reply

I didn't mean just comments. But comment wars, with multiple people commenting. Because each time someone goes to comment its a view. The front page is just for the ones being interacted with the most.

So some of my submissions are still not featured. No downvote bar makes me wonder why. So if there is no downvote bar we just have to assume that people are still downvoting the hell out of something like little evil jerks or that the admins decide ... nah, just won't feature this.
Since the bar has been removed I've gone from 78% featured to 73%. I am just not understanding. Some of my stuff is not too bad but if no one ever sees it I am just making them for myself I guess.

I'm not all about points. But this site becomes a lot less fun when you comment all over other people's memes and hardly anyone sees yours. Just saying.

Nothing really changed in the algorithm. The most upvoted images should still get to the top. But as with many voting systems, there is some luck/randomness involved.
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
So can you explain how does a meme not get featured? So latest memes are all memes created? And a meme gets featured off of there? For what? For views? Upvotes?
Can you explain the algorithm? I haven't found a page on this site that explains how anything actually works. It can be frustrating.

This is our official about page: imgflip.com/about. We may expand on that at some point, but for now that's our public description of how submissions work.

Submissions are only a tiny tiny subset of all images created. There are ~100,000 images created every day on imgflip, many of them shared on social networks.

Right. So like I said ... now that we cannot track our downvotes ... we have no way of knowing whether it is because a meme is unpopular with the public or if it is the moderators who just don't like them. "Imgflip users and/or moderators can then vote on your submitted images, and the best ones will make it to the homepage." Removing of the dislike bar seems to have given moderators a lot more anonymity. I can only assume since I have had such a drop off after the removal of the bar and since the 'algorithm hasn't really changed" that it is mainly due to moderators.
Bummer.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of no downvotes...I just made that meme because it seems to be something that a lot of people are identifying with right now...any word as to whether or not it is temporary? Just curious...

but now how are we supposed to complain about downvote fairies and hog the front page?!
reply

I know right? They just removed a very "movable" product. Annoying as it might be...memes about downvotes got upvotes, simply because everyone could identify with it....simple fact right there.

I am sensing there was a downvote CIA/Illuminati/conspiracy. Oh this is not good. Secretly downvoting memes so that people would be upset about downvote fairies, therefore can post memes about downvoting in order to get upvotes. Clever, very clever. But! Now that the downvote bar is gone the power has shifted. mmm hmmm.
So maybe all those who want it back are in some star chamber, inner circle, meminati.
reply

So far as I can tell, the majority of those that want the downvote button back are the ones that use it for trolling...there are exceptions, but i've seen countless trolls crying about it more than anyone else.

reply

I believe mine was the first on this topic to get featured...I noticed more came out after mine did...it could be timing...I don't know. I'm just glad the downvotes are gone...to many people abusing them for it to be useful...I guess now the trolls will have to find something more productive to do...or not.
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
Yeah, part of it is timing, because mine was made more recently than yours... but still...

And I have mixed feelings on the removal. I don't want Imgflip to become too much like Facebook :S

Well, I never used the downvote unless someone was just being a complete asshole...and even that took alot...I mean, I even upvoted people that were blatantly attacking me...just didn't care to participate in flame wars.

I always wondered who downvoted all my memes.. If you don't like it, comment it.

Yes u can, just to see I down voted your comment. It went to zero, tun I upvoted and it went up to two points.

The system still works, just got rid of the bar.

Like you said earlier, it gets rid of the band wagon, but people can still up or down if they want
