hey do you guys have a section for newbs
No, we don’t.
but seriosly, damn i cant spelll
What seems familiar about you?
One wonders.If you are going to make new accounts,do it on a different day.
And stop spamming the board.
Hey, Santa, do you like stormtroopers?
there okay i guess,but they are awesome but clonetroopers looked better and were more efficent bacause they were clones
but this is a good topic. when new people sign up what are they going to do? you see my point?probably not. but it helps
a meet and greet of the regulars, they will help people out
sorry it’s too soon……
This is actually a great question
- What does a new user need to know about the site? Common questions etc.
- What should we be asking them to do to help out?
knowyourmeme/knowyourfaqs lol that was just a suggestion
Lurking for one.
No one should jump right into anything.
before making an entry, consult the discussion boards.
Upload pis and help fill out already existing meme entries by posting info in the comments section.
“upload pis” dont you mean pics
sorry about the surliness of everyone right now, we just a had a troll banned and we are on edge since he might pop up with an alt account
Here’s a little FAQ I’ve started working on. Feel free to share your thoughts.
1. What is a meme?
A meme is a theoretical cultural unit that spreads from one mind to the next, via imitation. Meme’s are typically made up of many instances along the same theme, created by many different users. Memes spread due to their inherent values. Typically, the factor that contributes to a meme’s spread and popularity has to do with how easy it is to emulate.
2. What is a forced meme?
A meme in it’s purest sense is an idea that spreads because of genuine interest. A forced meme is generally something that has been written about or spammed excessively, or otherwise declared as a meme prior to proof of organic spread or interest. However, it should be noted that if user interest picks up, a forced meme can sometimes succeed in generating interest.
3. What is astroturfing?
Astroturfing occurs when a viral video or other phenomenon is staged or faked by an organization or other group of connnected individuals looking to promote a product, yet hide the fact that they are advertising. Knowing the difference between a grassroots movement and an astroturf movement is essential when considering a meme’s legitimacy.
4. Your site contains content that I find offensive. Why don’t you remove it?
There are many phenomena that spread not because they are funny, but because they are offensive. Obscenity grabs attention. That attention, whether positive or negative, propagates the meme. Know Your Meme does not condone discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, faith, political affiliation, or loyalty to sports teams such as the Packers (Peace be upon them).
However, there are many memes that spread because of their ability to offend people, and this is a phenomenon that we feel is worth documenting.
yes sorry please dont piss on our entries
I’m with Blubber on this.
Lurk moar to learn about the community before jumping in.
eh i guess so
@Christmasy streetlights i just read the thing on trolling i have to know in the thing were you click i accept there should be something about trolling on there
thats actually a good idea
and admins should ban IP addresses,not users
its a good thing to ask questions, i wish i could do this in real life, ask questions
If you have any website questions ill be happy to answer them. Just post them here or on my wall and ill answer away.
IP banning is supposed to arrive with the next updates.
Telling trolls not to troll only encourages them.
another good point
same here. Most (if not all ) the ppl on this site are extremly freindly and will ask ur questions happily
start following is asking for a friend right
KnowYourMeme lingo right (KYM)
dont get too excited
A Faq you can add
do not troll
if you want to know what trolling is go here http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/trolling
A certain degree of trolling is to be expected. A lot of it is harmless and plenty of us appreciate the lulz. The main problem is that we’re still stuck with one big general discussion board where it drowns everything out.
i wonder in KYM should there be Moderators trusted users who have powers to ban other users themselves
but there is also a problem they could also go mad with power and abuse it
ya i think trusted users should have some more powers.
its like a pyramid
or a list… a numbered list,something like that
like me? :P
yes. ….. i like it!
But there are the people who occasionally troll, and are funny, and then there are the people who troll 90-100% of the time and are not funny.
i know i wouldnt get power right away due to my…….past. but in a few months maybe.
