Can we Add Something to Additional References?

The thing with the additional references is that they aren’t the actual website that the meme is from.

They are other wiki style websites about a lot of subjects, fads, and memes, and are there so people reading our entries have another place to read about the meme/event/etc.

Although tumblr is a meme hub and it is popular, I don’t think it’s what the additional references should be for, unless there is a website that documents tumblr fads, in which case that’s what I’d suggest to go there.

But unliike memegenerator and ytmnd (it’s actually supposed to be a reference to the ytmnd wiki), a single tumblr page, unless they are totally dedicated to the meme, aren’t a wiki source on that image/video/whatever.

While on this topic, I think we should add Oh Internet as a reference. As much as I hate that abomination, it deserves reference as much as Encyclopedia Dramatica.

Speaking of which, we should also go through all pages that reference ED and make sure to change it to or OI.
