Whats the deal with all the 2+ year old pics suddenly showing up again?
@Muffintitan, apparently you have never heard of a repost. You see that is when someone posts a meme that had already been posted.
@ShutYourMouth, I am well aware of the retoast. However most of the time they dont bring the whole coment section with them as well. If you look at the recent upload most of the pictures have comments on them that are 2+ years old. Its not just reposts. It's full on memes showing up again. And seeing as most of them are memes I've seen befor on this app, their not suddenly showing up from uncut. Hell some of them have over onehundred likes. It only takes 50 to make it out of uncut into recent ( as far as I know anyway) . Its like the app is recycling itself.
@Muffintitan, I assume someone (or a group of someones) is going through and liking pics in uncut giving them enough likes to make it to recent.
@18bluecat, that would make sence, however I never sort by uncut and never have. So I wouldent have seen the pictures befor. I even looked through them again and saw 3 of them that I had liked in the past. They show up in my list of liked photoes and everything. Unless something can get downvoted back into uncut and then upvoted back into recent? I'm not sure. I'm more curious than anything. I just hope its not a sign of the end times. We just hit 500,000 uploads the other day. I hope its not a case of the snake eating its own tail you know? Ive had this app for years and I would hate to see its death throws.
@Muffintitan, Spoons is a turtle, not an Ouroboros. Jokes aside, I was wondering about this too. I know these are old pics because I had already liked several of them and a bunch of my old comments were suddenly getting likes. I thought it might have something to do with some people sorting by random and there might be some kind of marker that if an old picture hits a certain new level of likes it gets pushed back up into “recent” again. It’s just a guess, I’m not that great at coding and I certainly haven’t seen the algorithm for this app.
@Muffintitan, no idea. I have noticed it too and thought I was in random
@18bluecat, either that, or stuck pixel is uploading all uncut slowly to recent, to eventually stop supportfor the app. It's a bit of a strange coincidence that so many over a handful of days now have been promoted to recent, not gonna lie.
@Muffintitan, they just got promoted out of uncut
On no, spillage! Quick fetch the Camera??
A perfect meme representation of my life right now.
