I was able to log in through Google when my account got deleted...I could see what was going on but, although it "looked" like I could post comments...it wasn't really letting me post them...but renegade_sith, you were cracking me up...Moshii was talking back to 'em too and they deleted his ass quick...LOL

Hahaha yeah they did... I just decided to make a complete mockery of them and what they were doing while I still had my account and just kept waiting to get banned but it never happened lol. I figured maybe they liked star wars and didn't delete me cause of my name, and lapsed jedi wasn't deleted either, but then they started with the spoilers and no real fan would do that so I don't know why the hell I didn't get deleted. Lmao

Raycat is another popular user...He created that account as a gag...As a matter of fact, I was just talking to him yesterday and he is considering making a meme revealing his true identity...and unlike raydog.jr, he has purposely distanced himself from me so people will know he's not trying to cash in on my popularity...

reply

A moderator is a person who makes sure a site is run well and maintained with few problems. They correct problems in their site like yesterday when it was hacked. They make sure everyone is following the rules. Some sites have good moderators and others have crappy moderators. This site seems to have decent mods.

Have we done a head-count to make sure every active top user is back online?

I don't think I've seen memes or comments from Dankerson, tekbarrier, or ShawnLJohnson since the hack, for example (although I'm not sure if they normally come onto imgflip every day anyway)?

I just wonder if there's anyone who hasn't been able to get back into their account.

Some people mentioned changing their password after they were locked out of their accounts. That thought didn't cross my often-absent mind until after I had already made this new account, so I just decided to keep this one. At the time it happened, I thought my account was lost forever.

Some people got our passwords and got into our accounts.

Some titles of front page memes were changed, and some users had all their comments deleted (now restored).

Apparently there was at least 1 pornographic meme submitted as well (I didn't see it).

This site used to be about making original memes. It was one side of the meme equation. Typically you would make a meme...then post it on reddit or facebook or wherever. Not a whole lot of interaction. Now it's like a sight to post memes about users among other things it never was. Like points. As if they matter. I don't know. The whole things is goofy now. I stick around hoping it will get better.

i hardly use facebook, mainly to talk with family. i came here to make a couple of pics to demonstrate point accumulation in a game on a forum where the website didn't allow simply uploading an image from your computer. a week or two later i had a couple of ideas for memes that i posted here and a handful of people liked them.
i enjoy it here. i like that it has socialisation, no doubt there's sites that let you just work on an image to share with friends, but then there's also photoshop or even paint.
i don't know what it was like before, but the fact that at least now you can comment on other people's work and have discussions does suggest that the creators of the website intend for it to have a social function as well as a creative one. and whenever something is social, there will be those seen to be the most [funny/tough/athletic/smart/etc], those who appreciate>respect>admire the Most People, those who a$$kiss anyone who seems to be dominating and those that are just hanging out doing there own thing as well as the occasional needy beggar. and within communities and social groups you will often have inside jokes which is where i think a lot of the user-themed memes are coming from.
i think it's better that the points are worth nothing. i used to go to a site that doubled as a market survey host, and you could earn "real money" even by posting comments and quizzes and whatnot. it was like that when i first went there but people, for the most part, were reasonable and sharing/posting things for the relevance of them. then the system changed and essentially you had to be more active and more popular to earn your "money" and it just got ridiculous, attention demanding and cutthroat, with people spamming posts everywhere to the point that very little substantial content was every seen, just lost under piles of garbage.
i more want to know where my points are coming from, rather than how many i have. i play here for the fun and actual respect of people. i like finding people that have shared similar experiences, that have humour as warped as mine, that have interesting things to say.
i also like playing with trolls. i know i shouldn't, but i can't help myself

Well said Moshii...I think for me, Imgflip is more than just a place to make original memes too...I think of it also as a social community where you can interact with each other with text or be more creative and use memes to express yourself...I try to be as funny as I can when I talk to people...if you knew me in real life, I am that guy that makes a joke about everything and makes people laugh...and YES...there's people that DON'T get my sense of humor and DON'T like me for it.
I agree with you Moshii, in that I too, believe that the creators of imgflip saw the potential for growth as a social community when they chose to allow people to comment on each other's work. I am also glad that the points are worthless as well, we don't need the competitive, cutthroat mentality going on...there's already enough jealousy and shit throwing going around as it is...
But one thing's I know for sure is that even if I wasn't popular, I would still be doing what I do cuz it's what I like to do and it seems to work.
reply
5 ups, 1 reply
Well said, both of you.
I stumbled upon imgflip looking for a way to make memes that I would then share of Facebook. I would make the meme, copy it and leave. Never noticed the points thing at all. Then one day Facebook shut me down. Claimed I was using a bogus name! They wanted PHOTO I.D. to prove who I was to restore my account! 'F' that! So I drifted back here and started reading OTHER PEOPLES MEMES and found I could comment WITH MEMES and discovered a bunch of other people just as twisted as myself. Imgflip is like "CHEERS" and we are all Norm and Cliff and Woody etc.
(bet that went right over these whippersnapper's heads, didn't it?)

By looking at some of the comments here,.. you are right brother. Envy, shit slinging, condenscending comments aimed at users who basically interact well with other users. They see that as "popularity",... yet their own negative comments hold them back from whatever it is they wish to accomplish. I think everyone gets from this site what they put into it. There is a variety of users here with different ideas, and varied senses of humor,.. it's what makes the site great I think. What the haters dont get,.. is that memes are the extreme side of humor,.. or even ridiculousness. Thats what brings smiles! Everyone has a unique way to demonstrate their comic persona.. or meme on social issues, current events etc. The creator is NOT the judge,... the other users judge. Fortunately,.. the good users far outweigh the bad and the trolls, so it's still fun. Keep going bro!!
