Many of us have been passing judgement on memes too quickly, myself included. While it may seem that a lot of submissions should be deadpooled based on the info, many of these are actual memes, as said by Chris.
We might all need a re-debriefing, so here.

1: The only time it’s an insta-deadpool is with spam, troll, or duplicate entries.

2: If it looks like it isn’t a meme, look it up first. Turns out “It’s so cold in the D” is a meme, even though it looked like junk. GOOGLE, GOOGLE, GOOGLE!

3: This article is crap. +1 work.
Work on what? Origin? Spread? Evidence? Specify.

“[15:02] Instead of telling others why they suck, tell them how they can be awesome”

Yeah, that.

So, yeah, don’t “+1 deadpool” until you have actually checked for its presence.

What about +1 confirms or ZOMG WHY ISNT THIS CONFIRMED YET??!!11//

I only notice that with newcomers. The deadpool has been a problem with almost everyone.
Confirm with the normal members hasn’t been a problem.

Also (For users new to the site):

If the entry is already in either Deadpool or Confirmed, there is no reason to type “+1 Deadpool/Confirm”.

Suggestion: Make the newbies read about all this when they make an account.

So.. specify +work? But i thought the abstractness of it was the point… Ok, ill get better about constructive criticism.

+1 Confirm is fine too

+1 Work is meh…
sometimes it’s a bit bothersome listing down if there are so many fails in the entry itself even though it’s an absolute meme

+1 Deadpool
You have to explain why it has to be deadpooled, but sometimes the answer is so obvious you just have to say it…
