Meme Sub-Entries

Last posted Mar 21, 2014 at 11:10AM EDT. Added Dec 29, 2011 at 01:35AM EST

I was wondering if someone could tell me how to link entries to a hub article (i.e. as sub-entries), specifically for the Propaganda Parodies and The Simpsons entries.

I realize this may have to be done by an entry mod, because it would require editing all the memes, so if it is, I would appreciate it if someone could do it for me. Thanks!

@opspe

Yeah, only mods with entry powers can do that. I’ve added all the sub-entries to Propaganda Parodies and The Simpsons except for “I, For One, Welcome Our New X Overlords” and “The Goggles Do Nothing!” because they have already have been added to different entries. Unfortunately we can’t add more then one parent entry.

@Thomas Nair

I’m not sure if that entry should be added to Advice Animals because that entry mainly focuses on the catch-phrase with the image-macro series being a spin-off.

This would be a good thread for users to ask mods to add sub-entries to parent entries.

Thanks! It’s too bad about those Simpsons ones though…oh well. Now, as a final step, can you add “[View Related Sub-entries]” to the actual hub pages, like on the Half-Life one?

Oh and also add this one to the propaganda entry. Thanks again.

I’m not sure exactly how those “View Related Sub Entries” links get there but I think if an entry has sub-entries they automatically appear. Give it a day and it should be there.

If an article has sub-entries added to it that link appears. Similar with “View Related Entries”, that appears when an article itself has been added as a sub-entry to a parent entry.

The article hasn’t updated yet, making the links not appear.

Go to edit and just randomly save the article, forcing it to update. The link should appear after that.


I also added “The Goggles Do Nothing” and “Our New X Overlords” to The Simpsons.

Can we get this categorized as a snowclone? Thanks. Also that parent entry is, well, let’s just say it leaves something to be desired, namely information.

(Incidentally, googling “Know your meme RandomMan” turns this up as the number three image.)

Now I’m not entirely sure this deserves its own entry as it stands now, but since it has one, could we get this under The Simpsons? Brawler, I’m looking at you to exercise your new-found powers as Entry Mod. Thanks.

The Disney needs a lot of memes to be sub-categorized under it. See the entry for more info, thanks.

I see this thread is full of mods.

Can I suggest something?

Add Hotel Mario to YouTube Poop.

Also add Lotsa Spaghetti and Gay Luigi to Hotel Mario.

Just if you have the time, I’d greatly appreciate it though.

Done. Nice work on the entry btw. Although personally I think we need a more unified way of combining all these CD-i entries instead of having so many mini ones.

We do have an entry for Zelda CD-i, but that’s for the remixes and not the games itself.

But not an entry for the CD-i series in general, which would actually make a great subculture entry in my opinion. So many Youtube Poops spawned from it.


You know what, I’ll see if I can get a start with it. This stuff needs an article. Anyone who’s willing to help can look stuff up and request editorship when it’s up.

Great! I’ll help out with what history I know about the CD-i when you make the entry.

Added all the vids mentioned in the article.

Can you list possible others that should be added?

Here’s the entry

I’m leaving the history open for now, so you can add that later.

I called the entry “CD-i Games” on purpose to imply that’s it about the games, and not the console itself. But feel free to change this if it doesn’t work out.

Great, thanks!

Maybe can be added the Downfall parodies, the Literal Music Videos, Supercuts, Afro Ninja, Where the Hell is Matt, Dramatic Chipmunk, Dancer Stormtrooper, Dragon Twister, Greek Granpa Troll, Shit Girl Says, Dancing Baby, Epic Sax Guy, Crush on Obama, the Cinnamon Challange, Charlie the Unicorn, Best Cry Ever, Leave Britney Alone, Brodyquest, Tano Pasman, Nobody Canna Cross It, …

Woah, woah…

Can RandomMan and Cyber6x handle this stuff?

By the way, Gay Luigi and Lotsa Spaghetti weren’t linked to Hotel Mario, but I don’t care anyway.

I did but the entry hasn’t updated to show the sub entries yet for some reason. I tried randomly saving the article like Random Man suggested but it still hasn’t come through yet.

Also -

The only thing I’m not too sure about is if your Viral Videos entry is focusing on entries that are about a single viral video like chocolate rain & david after dentist, video trends such as supercuts and literal videos that have spawned several viral videos or both?

Moderator’s Log, Stardate 43125.8. Supplies are running low and the crew emotions are fiery. Thankfully we’ve managed to add the last of the submemes to the viral videos entry. My commanders at home base will also be happy to hear me and my crew have also added Boom goes the Dynamite. Moderator out.

Awesomw work, thanks! (sorry if there are too muhc entries)
Also, any mod can put this for a subentry of National Stereotypes?

Thank you for all your work Cyber. Unfortunately, due to space considerations, I can’t add all of those to the entry itself. Let me know if there are any that you think must be added.

You placed them under a duplicate article also called Hotel Mario.

I hid the duplicate and renamed it to “Hotel Mario 2”, so we know the difference next time.

Link (now hidden).

Both sub-memes are now added to the correct article.

Cool, thanks Random! I seriously had no idea why they weren’t coming up. I didn’t see that we had a previous Hotel Mario entry.

Well Done

Since this has been stickied, this is now the official “bug mods to do stuff” thread. In that vein, Disney needs a couple more sub-entries – Dolan and It’s Goofy Time to be specific. See the article for more info. And thanks!

I’ve added all the entries that didn’t already have parent entries, mainly because I think Hipster Aerial deserves to be put under hipsters rather than Disney etc.

Also I asked Amanda to sticky it for that purpose so thanks again to her!

Sorry to bug you guys again, but here’s an article called Tennantface (sorry for not linking but I’m a bit rushed) that should be a sub entry of Doctor Who.

Feb 26, 2012 at 05:31PM EST

It was already under Doctor Who, MDF.

Time for some more work, entry mods. Fox News needs some more sub-entries – Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly. But, I think that the Internet Hate Machine should stay part of Anonymous rather than get transferred.

Can This be parented under Something Awful and deviantART?

Mar 16, 2012 at 04:44PM EDT

I said this in IRC earlier but figured it could go in here as well:

In the case of Snookieshop / Jersey Shore / Single Topic Blogs

When a meme entry (Snookishop) directly spawns from or is based on content from a thing that has an entry (Jersey Shore), that should be used for the Parent Entry.
It should take precedence over the type of meme (Single Topic Blog) or the source of the meme (Tumblr). The type and/or source can be entered as a “similar entries” tag which will appear at the bottom.

I hope that makes sense.

Can we move the article I’m 18, do I have potential to the Photoshop entry rather then exploitables, as it recquires use of programs mentioned as not qualifying in the Exploitables entry.
Also, adding entries such as Babby, Leo Strut, Facebomb, and Frogout would be greatly appreciated.

Mar 30, 2012 at 02:40PM EDT

Sorry I’ve been a bit lazy recently, I’ve now added all of the entries as sub-entries to the request parent entries. I’m not too sure about the Photoshop ones for MDF because Photoshop, although associated with image editing, isn’t exclusively the only image editing software. Yes yes, it’s the main program but doesn’t represent the whole of image editing. In addition, some of those memes such as I’m 18, do I have potential have derivatives outside of images.
