Quick query about image policy: is original content grounds for deletion, even if it has something to do with the page in question?

Eh…This is kinda iffy territory…

Officially the rules say: “Spam content is forbidden within galleries, such as advertising and trollbait. Using the gallery in order to advertise your own generated content will lead to possible suspensions-”

However, I know that lots of users (myself and other mods included) have “made” their own stuff and uploaded to galleries. For the most part, it’s only a hand full of stuff, and you wouldn’t know they were user generated unless we told you, but still it still technically falls under original content.

I asked Verbose about this In IRC a while ago, and here’s what he said:

I guess moving them and letting the user know they can’t promote their own materials in the entry galleries.
When I say “promote,” I mean “spam.”
If you’re uploading images from different sources, then that’s one thing.
But if you’re just making stuff yourself and uploading it en masse, then I think that’s promoting yourself as opposed to being part of a natural, memetic spread.
At least that’s my take.

Overall, I would say it isn’t encouraged, but lots of the advice animal spin offs still have a “make your own” button. This alone means it’s not 100% against the rules. If it doesn’t break other any other rules (such as meta content, relevancy, or spamming/flooding) then feel free to send us them to review, but it’s not guaranteed grounds for removal.

This seems to be inappropriate content. I didn’t actually go to it, it was one of the links on the “You Might Also Like” section:

http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/417826-amanda-todds-death

It looks like one of those awful photos of people who have passed away and is making fun of the person. This kind of stuff is sick and should be removed.

Quick question, if an exact copy of an pre-existing image is uploaded to the gallery, but placed under another entry despite the original image tagging itself to cover both entries, does it count as a repost?

@DJKing, if it is reposted in equally relevant galleries then it usually is considered fine. However, what people consider equally relevant may differ. If it’s a submeme of a subculture, then I would say posting it in the subculture’s main gallery and the submeme’s gallery is no what we want. It is much more relevant in the submeme gallery. A crossover between, say Frozen and Watamote, though, would be equally relevant in both galleries, so I think it is fine to have it in both.

@Cold Hard Crash
People with scrapbooker powers can add metadata (tags, source, notes) to other people’s images. I’d do it myself, but my slow internet doesn’t seem to load either image at the moment. Technically, the new image is supposed to go (unless it is significantly better quality than the old one), but I’d wait until the old one has metadata in it before doing anything.

Could someone move this back to “Expand Dong”? While it would typically fit under “Tony Kornheiser’s ‘Why’”, the “Feature Length” gag is more associated with “Expand Dong”.

This is NOT needed for the article. In fact it is dangerous to keep.

Do you want 404? Because this is how Quinn can justify a 404.

This is a repost of This

This is a repost in its gallery.

Finally, http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/813772-yuruyuri is also a gallery repost.

I’ve marked most of the reposts in the “Five Nights At Freddy’s” gallery; but right now I don’t have the time to make the hyperlinks, sorry.
Can somebody maybe look over my ‘activity’ instead and find them?

From the Super Smash Bros. gallery the Zero Suit Everyone entry? Someone suggested splitting off all the zero suit characters pics into their own sub-meme. The following photos are also ones that would fit, but aren’t in the Super Smash Bros. gallery so I don’t know if they should be moved from their original galleries or simply reposted to the new one.

Holy Clawleone! Cooler’s “Well, I Sure Hope Somebody Picks up that Phone” video is in the same gallery 3 times.

One
Dos
Moltres

I’ll admit the third one is slightly different but I’m not sure it warrants keeping two of them in there.

Move back to Expand Dong.

Sure, it may not follow the style of a typical ED post (what with word-cutting and that shit), but content-wise it fits significantly better in that Image Gallery. It does not make any sense in Tony Kornheiser’s “Why”.

Move this to the GIF Image Gallery, since someone apparently already had posted this image in the “Super Mario” section.

Bumping. Perler Art is now Bead Art.

Also, I can’t tell if this violates NSFW guidelines. It’s zombies and semi-gore, but gore is against the guidelines period so I’ve marked it NSFW for the time being.

Edit: The part I’m thinking is gore is snow white holding one of the dwarfs’ head.
