@Bump Girl

My guess is that it was too explicit. On the whole, Know Your Meme does not house or promote explicit materials. Going by your images, your entry was more pornographic in nature than for documentation.

No porn or gore. External links to sites containing such content or ads will be censored at the discretion of moderators, unless it is absolutely vital to meme research discussions and accompanied by a clear [NSFW] warning label.

I’m not a Entry Moderator nor do I have expertise in the area, but you may want to talk to RandomMan or another Database/Entry Moderator to be advised.

Until then, I’d suggest holding off on any research endeavors

I’d love to help, problem is I don’t have a link to the entry as you guys hid it. (Bit fooling around with the URL got me the entry, as it’s still hidden only entry mods can access it right now).

For advice, from what I see here my best advice would be a header in the Bump entry, as there is good spread. As for the images, just look out for the ones you’re uploading. Safe is a-ok, but when going NSFW either tag them or don’t upload at all based on the content. If you are questioning whether or not a saucy image is “safe” enough, just hit me a PM with the image and I’ll have no problem to reply. Scrolling through the images most of them are safe enough for KYM when adding the NSFW marking, those that show clear genetalia or sexual intercourse are better of deleted.

Besides some sexual intercourse images that were uploaded, this is safe enough for KYM standards. We have worse stuff lying around (Oh God What Have I Done spawned much worse examples). What Verbose and Opspe said on it being “too NSFW” doesn’t apply from what I see.

Seeing how most information in the Bump Girl entry was related to the term Bump itself, a merge is entirely possible. All the duplicate info is already present, all we need to add is who Bump Girl is and where and when she originated.

If OP wants to do this, please say so and I’ll add you to the Bump entry as an editor. I can still access the Bump Girl entry so if you need the external references you already found just shoot me a PM and I’ll send them to you. Moving the images might take a bit longer as we need staff for that.


Opspe wrote:

Bump already has an entry

True, but so has Advice Animals, yet you don’t see us adding everything to that entry. If something is big enough, it deserves a seperate entry. End of story.

Whether or not that is the case here is an entirely different question. If OP thinks so, we can unhid it and let him continue to work on it. I’ll just scroll through the image gallery and delete and tag everything necessary.


Edit: Some more digging gave me a different impression. True, bump girl is popular, no question there OP. But from what I’m seeing here she’s part of a duo of anthropomorphised characters based on popular terms present on 4chan, these being Bump and Sage.

Whereas Bump Girl commonly keeps her same looks (besides some furry style images), Sage has changed appearance a bit, both in looks and sex.

So my final advice would be unhid the Bump Girl entry, mark it NSFW, clean up and tag the image gallery, and make the entire entry about both characters (and possible others I missed) instead of just Bump Girl.

the entry is already marked NSFW. I pulled it back into submissions. the images inside are marked nsfw too, which is fine because the image stream doesn’t remove NSFW content. it’s not a big deal to duplicate this nsfw warning

Expression Meme

I submitted this today. But it’s still imperfect.

  • In Spread section, this meme’s reputation on the English web need to be described more detail. I don’t know it so much. I need your help.
  • Throughout my research, I felt that dA users call everything popular among them “Meme”, and the original meaning of this word has disappeared from their usages. How do you think about this?

Planes, Trains and Plantains
I need help researching, more than anything. It’s rather obscure and irrelevant, at this point--but it still needs an entry.

I would also like to request editorship of Pickle Surprise . The original uploader is inactive, however, so it I’ll need help from an entry moderator.

Jan 06, 2013 at 05:34PM EST

requesting

Yeah, requesting a swedish member to review the Saltsjöbaden train theft entry and add eventual missing information and/or confirm what’s already there. Editorship will be granted if you just message me somehow with fragments of what you want to edit.

I need help with this entry.
I’m certain that it is a meme, because I see references and quotes from the series everywhere on the internet, but I honestly have no time to work on it, and I have no idea how to do the layout (having the video on it, search prevalence, etc.)
I wish someone who knew how to write an entry would help rewrite it, but I’m pretty sure I’ve just been written off as another brand new member moron.

Princess Erroria
I would like to assume direct control over this entry, most of the information is incorrect and I would like to fix it so the entry is accurate before it is deadpooled. Also Erroria is not an OC.

Looking for an evaluation and more editors on this one. I think the general structure should be good to go and there’s a big enough subculture to make it confirmed.

Body section is where you write the entry. It has a red star becuase you need to put something to submit it.

Help please! It’s just so old and origin is so sketchy. Also, should there be something in there about other things that have attempted synchronicity, a lot of copycats if you will?

Blood Raining Night

Good day, I’m a “brand new user” on KYM and I would like to receive more comments/constructive criticisms on my first page. Everyone, feel free to leave comments on the page but if you want to go into a lot of detail it’s probably best to continue that in a private message, unless you can fit it all into a comment or two. Thank you for your time and interest!

If at all possible, I would like be head of the Red vs. Blue entry to accept editorships so I can receive help finishing it. I pretty much revised what was there (which was previously one or two sentences) a while ago but still look for people to complete it. If I am mistaken and I do not need to be head of the entry to accept editorships, it still wouldn’t be too shabby seeing as I pretty much worked on almost everything in the entry (if not everything). Also. the user who made the entry to begin with hasn’t had any recent activity and has been absent from the site for at least 3 years.

IF this is fulfilled and if anyone is willing to build up on the Red vs. Blue entry (that’s been a lot of "if"s), it would be much appreciated.

As for the need for editorships.

Looking for people who:
-Knows much on the plot (At least the gist of it all but try not to spoil it for people)
-People who know about the rest of the characters.
Anything else additional that you feel needs to be added, go ahead.

I had revived the entry but do not currently intend to work on it further. At the time, I was sort of just getting into series. The plot is fairly beyond me and the rest of the characters is just something I became lazy on researching (heh, sorry). It just needs some finishing touches.

I want an article about this, but I don’t seem able to make a meme data entry on my own.
I Don’t know which site is the original, but many of these posts date from May 25 2013, and Mashable.com seems to be the main one. Also, I’m new to this and I’d rather a pro do this, not a n00b like me.

Okay, I’m not one of the editors of the Zidane’s Headbutt, nor do I want to be. But I happened to notice that the entry could use some minor updating, cleanup, and proofreading.

This is already old news, but there’s no mention about the Headbutt Statue they ended up making of the event. So could someone who’s already an editor on the entry, or wants to become one, update that.

It’s a Confirmed entry, so it’d be nice to see it on par with more recently confirmed entries.

I though about mentioning this in the comment section of the entry, but it would’ve probably just gone unnoticed. Making a new thread about this issue would also have been a bit excessive in my opinion.

Not sure if this is the right place, but I did some research to improve KYM’s international coverage, so I made the entry for the biggest (and quite short-lived) meme of Hungary in 2013, the Hungaromém.

I might write a few more info into the entry, but I welcome comments under it regarding what could be improved upon/clarified. If it passes the test of being completely understood by someone who isn’t Hungarian, then it will be fine enough. (My English could be better.) Of course, my main goal is to get it confirmed, although I doubt it would be deadpooled for any reason. Thanks for any assistance.

A few days ago I rewrote this article, as it was poorly written (it had no subsections) and contained bad English. However, the entry still needs some help. I’ve rewritten the whole article and divided it in About, Origin, Spread and Search Interest subsections and added some videos for it, but I’d appreciate some more editors! A check if I’ve done well would also be appreciated.

The whole thing needs work over all. The parts with the most help needed are impact, reception and fandom though.

So I’ve been seeing this guy around YouTube and apparently there seems to be a somewhat significant fanbase surrounding him. He is referred to by his fans as either “GGG3”, “Tyrone”, or “Based Tyrone”

I can not find a YouTube channel for him, and all of the videos that include him are posted by others (there are a ton of different users who post his videos). Googling his aliases also don’t seem to help. I did try seeing if there was a KYM article on him, but I couldn’t find one (hence why I’m here).

From what little information I’ve been able to gather, it seems he has a fiverr.com page. I’m not sure what he sells on here, but it is possible he has all of his videos hidden in what appear to be some sort of self-help guides.

So yea, that’s all I could find, and I’ve been (lacklusterly) searching for a good hour or so. If anyone knows anything about him please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s a video of him to give you a starting point:

His name is Gordon Hurd. Like you said, he has a fiverr page, which is where he was discovered by 4chan. He sells promos like the one above. You send him the script and an image, and he’ll read it with the image on the screen. 4chan took a liking to him, and orders for promos of his have been skyrocketing. Here’s a playlist of a select few of them–mainly readings of copypasta.

I’m thinking that the Turbotastic meme could use an entry. If you agree, could you give me the origin? (I mean which site did the meme first spread, instead of where it actually came from. Because you know it’s from Wreck it Ralph….)

Hi all, recently I’ve been working on my first ever entry (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/transfer-deadline-day). Initially the formatting was a mess, but I checked out the Textile page and the Style Guide and I fixed what was wrong. I believe that I’ve put in enough info, images and links in the entry for it to be a decent page. I’m happy with the way it turned out so far, but I was wondering if any one could check the page out and offer some suggestions on how to make it better? It’s a soccer event, which isn’t very popular amongst the main users of this site, however it does generate a lot of memes and discussions on soccer forums and Facebook and some of the topics relating to it are well known amongst the British soccer community. So far there wasn’t a single place that contains all the info and related memes in one place, and searching for them individually is difficult. I hope it doesn’t get deadpooled.
