I've just been wanting to say something. I've been seeing a trend on FP that bothers me. Different variations of a meme shows up about five times on here and suddenly everyone starts complaining about how it's over used and not funny any more. That's what a meme is. It's something that gets repeated over and over and over again. If you can't handle that, how can you say that you like memes? The complaining about memes happens so often, it's become a meme on here itself.
@ archiethesailor, I'm glad this has been said because I feel complaining about how unfunny and repetitive a meme has become, especially when it's been so short lived, solves nothing. I understand if people find a meme unfunny, downvote it if you dislike it so much, but hating on a meme just because it's being used repetitively seems to me like they're jumping on or starting a hate bandwagon just for the upvotes
@Taquito Speedo, I just don't like the crap ones. Never liked the "message fading into obscurity of specifics" meme where the details increase but the pic quality decreases. First one I saw was crap. But I do miss some of the old ones like the guy getting kicked out of the window meme.
@mas2de, I just don't feel it changes anything. Perhaps creating a new one yourself or perhaps recommending constructive criticism would be better in my opinion. It's just seems like petty hate when it's nothing more than a comment that says "this is dumb" repetitively
@ archiethesailor, people only hate shïtty or forced memes. Repetitiveness has nothing to do with it either, no one likes spam. Don't make shïtty memes and don't spam. Been here for like 9 years now, its always been like that
@Dexios S Divine, Thing is though, that's pretty subjective. Personally, I love some of the memes some others hate, and hate some that others like. Repetition is a huge part of it. It's not a meme if no one or few people repeat it.
@ archiethesailor, didnt know if you ment repeat as in spam or sharing. You saw the update with the dumb picture gets worse, words get better meme. That memes pretty shït, hardly funny or anything at all really imo and then there were like 6 in a row. I dont whine or w/e, downvote em all and swipe left. Eventually they'll stop. If a lot of people dont like it then its a bad meme
@Dexios S Divine, If there were so many people who didn't like it, more wouldn't be made so often. I personally like that one, and the "bone apple tįt" meme, and even loss edits. I think, a big part of this habit of complaining about memes being over used is the bandwagon effect. People see others complaining so, to avoid being left out, they start complaining and hating too, even if they'd otherwise like it.
@ archiethesailor, no, overusing a meme is forcing it to be relevant. If you try spamming something over and over trying to get it every where in one go then people will not want it, especially if its nichely funny or relatable etc then theres that bone app tit one that just tries to hard, same joke and punchline, its not really a meme to me.
@Taquito Speedo, yeah. It pretty much is. Downvoting it into obscurity should suffice.
@Dexios S Divine, I agree, over using something does make it forced. But people here seem to be claiming that something is over used when the meme is only just getting started. Maybe, part of the problem is the way pictures are uploaded and organized on here, having very little buffer between similar pictures. I guess maybe FP wants like pictures to be together for some reason.
I've enjoyed talking with you, even though you disagree with me, but I don't think I'll get anywhere in trying to convince you. I'd rather end the conversation before things get heated.
@ archiethesailor, lol no one is gonna get heated if shït stays civil. Were talking about meme culture here and neither of us are throwing any superiority complex passive aggressive crap around. No fires starting here
@Dexios S Divine, Maybe I'm over cautious, but I've seen people get pretty angry over less.
@Dexios S Divine, basically don't act like Micheal Fassbender and everything will be okay, right?
@Taquito Speedo, lol basically
@ archiethesailor, look I'm not trying to start something but it really boils down to; if you don't like seeing people mouth off, keep scrolling. So someone dislikes a meme/post and is verbal about it, that's what a comment section is for. Look at what you started (respectfully), look how much this was already discussed! Someone could equally complain that people get into heated discussion too much on a site meant for humor. As for me I like seeing both.
@ archiethesailor, nobody likes it when top comment isn't a hilarious joke.
@orion55, I get it, I don't have to look at the complaints, but at the same time, people don't have to complain about the pictures. I'm just offering a complaint because I'm hoping it will get people to start filling the comments with jokes instead of complaints more complaints.
@ archiethesailor, the sucky part is most either didn't read any of this or don't care enough. I simply don't comment on pics I don't like, because why bother. But there's always trolls who will do whatever they want because nothing is physically stopping them on the interwebs. It's sad, so those of us who pay attention need to unite, collectively groan, and try to only upvote and contribute funny/worthwhile comments. Isn't that all we can do? *group hug*
@Taquito Speedo, I think he left because of how shït the assassins creed movie was and now he can never show his face again.
No lie I thought the "I thought we agreed this was dead?" Was a meme for a week. Until I realized it's just meme snobs spouting nonsense.
@Punny lad, I wouldn't even call them meme snobs if they can't handle the repetition that's needed for something to be a meme.
@Taquito Speedo, Whaaaat? I've only ever known him to be a reasonable, level headed guy.
Smooth as a shaved ballsack
@TriangleTesticles, this should be top comment
That's What a meme snob is, someone who doesn't give something a chance to be a meme and grow.
We gotta be meme Bobs.
If it looks stupid, but it works...
