The minute a meme is invented on our site and actually takes off is the minute that we can no longer be an impartial reference. We do not make memes on this site.

As a site that catalogs and analyzes memes, it is not in our interests to influence the spread of memes, and we frown upon people using the site to spread their own memes.

Now, by posting original content to KYM, it has spread to 4chan.
See: http://knowyourmeme.com/forums/1-general/topics/312-my-nidodad-made-it-to-b

In effect, those who are observing and analyzing mems have influenced the place where the meme proliferated. That is a conflict of interests to our site. We would prefer if our users would refrain from posting their own original content in meme entries. We want to document memes as they occur, not cause them.

If you would like to create original content, feel free to share it in the forums. Our images section within a meme entry should represent instances FOUND, not created specifically for the entry.

Don’t mean to sound like a dick, but if you want to share original content, do so in the forums, or on 4chan its self.
