I made one for Weegee. :) Does it have to be approved first before showing on the memes list?

I just want to echo Jamie’s point, “4. fill out detailed scientismic information about meme: history, mutations, other resources, etc.”

We’ve been getting a ton of submissions, which is awesome! But the more info you include in your submission, the faster it will be added to the database.
If we get a good lead on a meme that we’ve missed, we’ll do our best to research it. If your meme entry consists of only one example, no backstory, no external resources, then it may take a very long time before the entry appears.

Remember: something can go viral, but it’s not a meme until it mutates.

there should be an episode about chain letters. or at least a thing under memes for it, i would make one but i don’t know how to take screenshots so i can’t do a thumbnail thing. It is a shame, I have actually found some really retarded chain letters out there…
