I find there is one small problem with memes that get a lot of comments.If some one replies to your comment.It is hard to find which one lol
reply

If you click on the empty white space next to a meme, it will hide all the comments between that meme and the next one of the same color side bar below it...that makes it easier to see all the comments pertaining to a specific comment.

Downvotes still work, they just aren't shown. To me the upvote is a reward system or at least a thank you. Personally I think you deserve it if:
1. You have a comment that warrants a reply (like yours here).
2. A meme that made me laugh or think.
3. You took the time to comment to me.

I don't have to agree with you to upvote, I find it intellectually dishonest to do that based on my standards outlined above. Unless someone is a total douche (and I have yet to have that directed at me as an individual here) I don't see the need to downvote.
reply
7 ups, 1 reply
Per your profile - you comment more than create memes,... so maybe not on the site regular. The downvote feature was being abused by a subculture of trolls - who would create alt accounts to DV some users they did not like ... for whatever reasons. I personally with there was a "view" feature with ltd comments,.. and the most viewed could be put on the front pages. Points and the Leaderboard seem to aggravate trolls who cannot create ... so pick at other memes. They take memes too seriously,... get irked that someones opinion differs from theirs. Rather than share opinon and ideas,.. they resorted to DV,... and generally being an assclown. When they got called out or reported ... they come back with new alts. I wish there was one acct per IP address. . maybe two for a family. It would cut that nonsense out. Memes are meant for the user and like minded people,... if others do not agree,.. there are other memes they can comment on,... or create memes themselves that may appeal to their own culture of like minded users. Memes will never appeal to everyones political / religious / views or varied types of humor,... but there is a subculture of trolls that lack that logic and feel they should correct opinions that differ from theirs or just be an ass,... rather than respect that other users ,... are entitled to their opinons. The DV buttons are more of a curse than a help,... IMHO.

If I comment on a meme I upvote it. That way it goes into my likes file n I can go back after n see how the thread is doing. And if there lots of comments i upvote all those too, the usually I hit my comment in my haste and get the "silly" notification. Meme Ettiquette I guess. Except for troll comments, those I leave alone.

reply
5 ups, 1 reply
I get what you mean, it's just, we don't need all these memes about UV's and FP all the time. Dankerson made a great point too. These memes are pushing laugh out loud memes like his off the FP or at least keeping them from getting seen.

I don't want to get into an argument about it though. You're one of the cool memers here. :{
reply

No way we argue bro!!! Its a valid point but since there is not anywhere that lays out any kind of etiquette I thought it was a good idea to let users have the floor and suggest themselves what they thought was proper.

I get what you are saying, but keep in mind this wasn't an attempt at front page glory, it was meant to state that I was disappointed with viewing a lot of memes and comments that deserved upvotes and were not getting them. I am not b**ching for myself mind you, I in NO WAY can complain about not getting votes. Its more when I go through the lates stream and see memes that have 2 or 3 comments and no upvotes. I really just wanted to call peoples attention to it and see if I could get a few more to think about the value of their votes for the benefit of all. I truly do regret that you feel I am taking away from others as it certainly was meant to benefit all.

Its going to happen, I've had what I thought were incredibly original ideas and found out someone else had already done it. I've pulled a lot of my submissions for that which is why only about 20-30% of my stuff anymore is on the stock templates. It still sucks when that happens though.

Ha! I made like 5 memes pointing out the SAME THING! All I got was ppl saying "my memes suck" "upvotes are a choise" "youre a baby" "you should leave then" and shit like that. Lucky you didnt get that shit. Thats why I critisize this site. People are f**king shitty on here more than before. Tumblr for the win.
reply

I went about 10 pages back in you submissions. I would say you made quite a bit more than 5. When this one is done and gone I'll move on. Hopefully some users got something out of it, but if they didn't, doing more will not change them. Sometimes there just is no sense as to what will move/inspire someone to react, and that's just an individual thing, You've done some good stuff... I loved the Takin Care of business and I intend to go back further and look at more! I sincerely believe if you worried less about the votes, you will find that you get more. You never will get as many as you put out, I'm willing to bet I get 1 for every 10 that I give, but that's okay, I'm getting the laughs and that's enough.

Yah. I just felt like people were upvoting like crazy not just for me but in general in the past and now its lucky if somebody gets to the front. But ur rite. Just a meme site. I just also hate how ive had trolls follow me and completely ruin the fun. I rarely make memes anymore here. I dont even get veiws. I guess it dont matter but i feel that if somebody doesnt even use a template rite and its not even funny by any standerd, its front paged. But ive done memes that involved quite a bit of photoshop that nobody payed attention to. So yah it doesnt matter especially if people are gonna be like that.

Generally, my memes will receive 2-8 upvotes and about 300 or so views. I'll usually get about 10 upvotes for every 500 views. There are exceptions to this, though.

If I look at a meme (meaning I click the meme to see it up close) I'll upvote it. If I don't think the meme is funny or I just don't get it, I won't upvote it. There are a handful of users that I upvote pretty much every one of their memes. Usually because they make very good memes.

I agree but I must admit I don't give any auto upvotes except in comments if its a thread that pulled me in. I do however think I'm pretty liberal with the upvotes on new submissions. It gets the "liberal" out of my system. :)

I heard that, but usually even those, if I'm engaged with them, i still upvote, mainly because i want them all to be seen and my replies to be seen. Its always up to the user though to set their code and what is acceptable or not. It actually takes quite a bit to get a downvote out of me, mostly I upvote everyone that comments on my submission because all comments help it move up. My biggest issue on this one was that it sat on the 1st page forever, I only wanted it to go to page 2 and be seen :)
