Thanks for removing all those.

We must move the Facebook comments section on each article down. I don’t care what anybody says about it, it’s degrading to have people who aren’t avid members of the site place above us.

Make images and videos have more than one meme to be designated to it so we don’t have to make duplicates of it on other articles.

I’ve said this before but if we made it so new members had to wait 1 hour after creating their account to make an entry it might help reduce the number of spam and deadpool entries. A lot of people register, make a deadpool entry, and then never come back. This could make them either forget about the site and never make the entry or they would lurk for that time and learn the rules in the process. Of course there will always be people who try to submit single image entries no matter what we do to prevent it.

Maybe let editors have the ability to mass-upload pictures/videos after a period of time? Or maybe just the mods?

I have a few:

-Reorganize the search system so that Deadpool Entries are put at the back of the search.
-Add a multi image uploader for Mods and privileged members to use.
-Create an instructional video on how to create entries, find origins, what the rules are, ect. that people are forced to watch when they sign up or make their first entry. (actually, I will make a thread for this one)

I would like to further elaborate my suggestion.
When I said to make images and videos have more than one meme to be designated to it,
I meant it as a singular entry within the database (thus the “prevention of duplicates” part).

Whenever an uploader assigns one or more memes to an image or video,
the system would make a thumbnail link of the photo page to the meme’s gallery.

That way the website’s database would save storage space
and focus people’s attention to a single entry instead of being divided by two or more of the same image/video.

Think of it as an advanced version of the tag feature.

But what if a video applies to more than one meme?

I think limiting things across the entire database wouldn’t be useful, at least with the system we have.

Even if we had a search function, I still would think that it is a bad idea, it makes it harder for people to find fun videos and have a good time on the site.

That’s the entire point of my suggestion.
I’ve seen far too many images and videos that fit to more than just one meme, subculture, etc.
And due to this people are forced to upload the same thing for another article over and over again.
This has been bothering me since I first visited the site.
Why constrain to just one when the content clearly fits to more than just one category?

This proposed system would help prevent further duplicates from occurring without altering the rest of the site. You’ll still have the image and video galleries under each article like before but the uploader will have an option to link his/her image or video to several more articles instead of just one (this would appear as several article links under “Origin Meme”) and by doing so its gallery thumbnail will appear on each article’s gallery he/she have categorized it to.

With this the site and its contributors would be more efficient in content management and people would no longer bother uploading the same thing for each article he/she finds fitting for the content he/she uploaded.

Also in an event that a user notices that the content is missing an article link due to an unnoticed meme reference by the uploader, the user should be able to inform this to the uploader (or a moderator) by using a similar feature article entries are currently using: the “Suggest a Change” button.

On another note, I don’t see why fixing this issue would make this site less fun.
Can you please further elaborate your point?

I misunderstood your suggestion, thinking you meant to limit videos to appearing once on the site total, IE only on one entry.

I think that a trending videos section on the main page similar to the trending images would be a nice addition.

It used to be like that, I don’t think they’ll switch it back.

However, I concur.

Viewing your profile page or clicking the link should revert the “X new wall posts” on the main page to 0.

Two suggestions for the forums.
1. A preview function.
2. Quotes are actually part of the post, so you can quote only part of a post, have multiple quotes in one post, etc.

I don’t know if you were working on this, but still…
1) When you search on the Image and Video Database, they tend to “crash” and start launching random results instead oflinear ones. For example, let’s say I’m at page 650, there I see the most recent video numbered as 2532, if I go to the next page, instead of seeing the video number 2533 at the very bottom, I see vid 3200 and forward instead. Could it be possible to correct this?
2) Video Mods. There’re too many old vids that have been taken down from YT that ane now useless on KYM. I know videos might be insignificant, but exploring the video section of Red Zone for example, and seeing up to 12 videos taken down is really annoying. I know there are mods that can remove these, but it’s too much work for the few of them.

Here’s an easy one:
If you click on the thumbs-up/down tab, it should be possible to change which option you selected. A lot of people have been clicking on thumbs-down accidentally, stealing karma from people for no good reason. Simply letting people change their selection would fix this problem.

About the Featured threads…
I’ve just checked the Just for Fun… “collection”? and found some featured threads that haven’t been active for months, but since they’re featured you can actually Necro them for no apparent reason.
Can someone manage those threads on a better way? I mean, some of them had potential, like the Batman one, or the Demotivational Posters one, but what about this? Anybody could Necro those threads just to troll the community and…
…wait, I’m actually giving potential trolls new ideas!

A report button for uploaded images and videos.
That would be useful on keeping the site relatively clean and organized.

Also can you allow the tagging system to be editable by everyone again?
By “editable” I mean not just adding tags like the old system but also removing and editing them.
The clickable tags were a nice addition but sometimes the uploaders don’t even bother putting tags on their images and videos.

There shouled be a warning if you attempt to edit an entry while somebody else is makeing an edit to it. Me and RandomMan acidentally overwrote eachothers work because we didn’t know whe tried to work on it at the same time.

I don’t know how the new “trending” images on the front page works but is it possible to cut out the NSFW meme images? I didn’t really want to see a girl throwing puppies in a river. It made a sad face.

Can we get rid of the “you can only edit your post within 30 minutes” rule? Does anyone even remember why it was made in the first place? It’s sorta dumb, and very annoying.

It creates troll opportunities.

Trolls can make a post, wait for responses, and then quickly change/delete the post.

For Person entries, can we have the Main info like “Year” and “Origin” changed to “Date of Birth” and “Famous for” or something like that? Ditto for Event entries except maybe with “Start of Event”.

Can we have titles based off of Karma Amounts?

Example: User has over 2000 total Karma and their balance is above 90% Positive they would get a “Loved” title? Likewise, if they got over -2000 total Karma with less than 10% Positive they would get a “Hated” title?

I don’t think we should make people any more obsessed over karma than they already are, personally.

I see constant karma whoring threads on the horizon if this gets implemented.

Also, I wonder how productive it would be to have a “hated” title assigned to people. It would do more to shun users than it would to encourage them to change their behaviour. It might even convince them to start a fresh account with a clean slate – which totally defeats the purpose of having karma at all.

Now, if there was the option to choose which titles to display out of a list of “earned” titles (for example, if you have enough image contributions to be an Archivist, and also enough comments to be a Conversationalist, you could choose which one is displayed) then it might make more sense, as no one would be forced to display the “hated” tag.

A sort of achievement system would also work well here. Users could accumulate badges for achieving certain milestones or accomplishing certain tasks, and each badge comes with a title. Users could choose which title is displayed, and all of the earned titles could be catalogued under a tab on their profile page. Users could earn the right to display more than one title after accumulating a certain number of contributions (so 1,000< = X, >1,000 = X & Y, >2,000 = X, Y, & Z, etc.). This would give the admins more leeway to encourage the kind of behaviour they want (more badges for meaningful contributions = more contributions) and it would eliminate the danger of losing a title you like just because you made too many of a single type of contribution.

When searching for threads, have a option to show threads by a certain date, so you can find the unlocked version of a thread. Would be nice to show the original post rather then every post ever.

Can we go back to showing the highest rated images and videos on entries? Showing newest images and videos first mostly just shows off bad examples of the meme.

More important, when someone clicks the [1] or any number page scroll link to get to one of the external reference links the page scrolls to it but the Facebook and Google+ bars block the link you were trying to see. Can we have it so it automatically makes up for this and scrolls up the extra pixels so we can see the link we were trying to access?

An hour? How about a month? That would ensure very few people would care enough to make these straight-to-deadpool articles, and we wouldn’t have problems with new folks who don’t understand what memes are.

A few days ago there was a straight-to-deadpool article whose only text was a description of the backstory behind the cover picture, and then (paraphrasing here) “I thought it looked like it could become a meme.” That is not how memes work, and that is not how KYM articles work.
Another one, “Blue,” put up simply because it had a very high number of search results in Google. I wish I could shake some sense into whoever made that article. Of course it got lots of results, you fucking idiot, it’s a common word!

I’m willing to forgive not being an expert on the intricacies of internet memes, but it gets really aggravating when all the articles in the Also Trending bar are either just like the one I just described, or fucked up articles made by trolls. One month to wait before allowing article creation would make for a huge decline in both.

If a month is too much, a week might be enough.

tl;dr: I hate the deadpooled articles in the Also Trending bar. Let’s make it so you have to wait a month after creating your account to make an article.

How about images can have more then one entry for a subject?

Eg. this would go under both Pokemon and Batman. Although, this would require a lot more effort for the rage comic uploads.

Yes, and there are usually cartoon characters that are drawn as ponies, so that’ll be very useful.
I was also thinking of a, “Random” section of the forums. I’m just saying because more than half the stuff in the JFF IS random.

NSFW tags for images? Stuff like this that contain gore, nudity etc could get a warning before you view it (similar to entries) unless you have that NSFW turned on in your profile.

Though should this be settable by the mods with image powers, the user whom upload it or both?

The reason why JFF is created is because random threads on General caused it to be too messy, and thus JFF is born. JFF IS for random stuff.
