I recommend you ask some old users or staff members about this, they’ll help you out.

KYM originally started out as a short web series with each episode talking about a meme. Which originally was made by Rocketboom.

That’s the super abridged version.

The Know Your Meme project started in December 2007 as a limited-run video series created by Kenyatta Cheese, Elspeth Rountree, Jamie Wilkinson, and Andrew Baron. The website, titled Know Your Meme: Internet Meme Database, was started as a supplement to the series and contains more than 1300 entries that are “confirmed” memes as of October 2012

I almost did this once for “lulz” and so that I could put
“/meta/ as fuck” as a tag. Lol.
