Mission statement before entry?

I feel like a lot of people miss the point of KYM when they try to make a new entry if they’re a brand new member, and I honestly think a good way to fix it would be to have a screen pop up on trying to make your first entry that tells you what the site is all about. It doesn’t have to be long- winded or heady; all it needs to do is explain that KYM is an online encyclopedia of memes, and nothing more.

Or give people a week before they can make an entry.

I had an idea saying that they should have a specific amount of contributions if they can make a meme entry, but in retrospect, it wasn’t a great idea. Abra wisely said that if a crappy entry does come along and we think nothing of it, it could actually be a meme and we don’t even know it.

This is true. Just because something hasn’t shown up on the sites we usually visit, does not mean that it isn’t a meme. The internet is a big place, and it is totally possible for a meme to exist completely outside the usual 4Chan/Reddit/Tumblr crowd that most of our members move in.
