I’ve noticed that alot of the early entries are getting ignored. Then again, it’s just my personal opinion, and worst case scenario they go nowhere, but I really think we should start confirming/deadpooling them because they’ve been there for a while. (Earliest being 4 months ago)

@Andrew, Confirming and Deadpooling is the job of the Administrator.

The better the info, and the more factually written, the sooner the entry can be confirmed. I would love to deadpool every single one that isn’t written factually, but people are sensitive about that, so we give them some time to work on them.

Want your entries to be Confirmed more quickly?

  • Provide links that back up your statements.
  • Make only factual statements. Do not share your own opinions or speculation. Instead, provide proof of facts.
  • If you don’t know whether or not it is a meme, start a conversation in the forums first and see if your fellow users will help gather information before posting.

Eventually we will have a guide to help you with your research. That guide has been drafted and is awaiting approval.

We could use some help in there…
leave comments tagged w/ either “CONFIRM” or just “NOTABLE” (new category?)… we’ll check it out

Is this ok to be confirmed?

Also i must be stupid but for some reason i cant figure out how to make a link in the article a hyperlink. I’ve read the textile instructiong but i cant work it out.

Made some updates. If the meme started on YTMND, and is known on YTMND as “Obi-Wan Hates” then we should include that in the article, despite the fact that ED refers to it as Force Push. So I opted for “Obi-Wan Hates/Force Push”

thanks for that chris, sorry for being a total dumbass but can you tell me how you create a hyperlink in an article?

Sep 08, 2009 at 07:02PM EDT

Follow this format and just delete the spaces:

" (name of the link) " : (hyperlink)

I used to use this format as well:

< a href = (hyperlink) > (name of the link) < /a >

Sep 08, 2009 at 07:06PM EDT

Yup. Do exactly like Jostin says, but delete the spaces.

Or if this helps, do it just like this but change the ; to a :

“this is my link ";

Or if this helps, change the [] to <>

[a href=]This is my link[/a]

cool thanks guys, much better now!

Sorry for another question but how do you put a quote in that quotation field?

Sep 08, 2009 at 07:33PM EDT

You write <> between the word “blockquote” at the beginning of your text, then <> between “/blockquote” (with the /) at the end.

Ok i think these two are ok to confirm, let me know if it needs anything more.

To be honest, your Lootie entry fails to mention where the photoshopping occurred, where lootie images became popular, and most importantly, it fails to analyze the racism of the meme in any way. Not to mention, it gives no context about how FEMA failed.

I’ll fix up your article. In the mean-time, how about you study another related meme. “George Bush Don’t Like Black People.”

Sep 09, 2009 at 07:18PM EDT

I didnt think the racism of it all was really relevant but in the future i’ll try to put as much info as i can get. I’ve got the origin listed as EBaums world but i cant go on it as that site is blocked at my work. Im not sure what FEMA is and yeah i’ll have a look at the other meme now.
