Continuing on, if you do well enough in a short period of time and make a claim about doing so, people get curious and wonder who this guy/girl is and how you managed to achieve so many points so they look at your other memes. Those memes get views and upvotes, continued cycle and then you have more points. So... Yes it does in fact make sense.
By makes sense, I ment that your Christmas situation was relateable and how you were able make a lot of memes in that time & get points racked up quicky in that time period hypothetically makes sense and is relatable.
Nobody around, go nothing to do, you got to find ways to entertain your self so meme making happened. The more memes made, the more likely someone will stubble upon something you made and thus you get more points. Higher view count, the more likely you will get upvotes. More upvotes might lead to more views and the cycle continues on all the while you make more points.
