Reverse image search definitely helps, especially when it is an image that’s been iterated into different languages. Google Images also has a feature that allows users to see “similar images” or “more sizes” that will help isolating the original instance. If you’ve already identified the keywords and appx. time period associated with the image, you can also narrow down the Google search results by using “Custom Range” (ex: 1/1/2009 – 12/31/2009) on the sidebar. Great thread is great.

I ended up on the website for the first time through Boxxy episode in early 2009. After watching Xzibit Yo Dawg and Single Serving Sites episodes, I signed up for a KYM account My first entry submission was Playing Dead!
@Tomberry, Know Your Meme is no longer affiliated with Rocktboom, but I agree it’s a great intro to Nyan Cat. Kudos to Molly for excellent meme reportage! We’re working on rebooting KYM episodes, more updates to come.
We had a good talk on how to improve forum moderation last night. We’ll be addressing these issues more aggressively (soon). For now, I updated KNOW YOUR MEME: RULES thread and they will be more visible when posting a new thread or reply. Original rules thread here: http://knowyourmeme.com/forums/general/topics/3938-know-your-meme-rules

lol, did he say it with an Australian accent? As for the possible linkage between Lying Down Game and Planking, Paul Carran (the NZ guy being credited as the original planker) has said in news interviews that “lying down game” was the source of inspiration for planking: Q: How did it start? A: I got put on to a game called “the lying down game” by a friend in the United Kingdom. Me and a friend of mine, Justin Kemp, thought we would take it to the extreme and kick it off down our part of the world...
Here’s KYMdb – Planking.
We lost a champion today. Rest in peace, Randy Savage (November 15, 1952 – May 20, 2011)
Greenpoint, Brooklyn WHAT UP--
@drpepperfan, diggin’ the idea of wall-ifying editor’s /talk page! as OGW brought up, there is a /staff_notes section, but hardly used and only visible to editors..
Hey @GingerSnaps, Thanks for bringing this up. We’ll address this in the very soon time. +1 everyrone, +1
what an honor, guize. double dream hands for you all,
Hey guize, I know this topic has been discussed here and there before, but I just want to hear everyone’s thoughts on how & why My Little Pony came to be what it is today. As documented on our site, there were plenty of signs and symptoms that /b/ crowds love rainbows & unicorns prior to MLP… So the question being: when did rainbow / unicorn craze exactly begin?
In order to efficiently track and document the latest developments relating to this news, we’ve created an “event” entry for Osama bin Laden’s Death. Moving this thread to Meme Research forums, everyone jump in!
This is awesome. Please share more thoughts on forum guidelines and KYM mods + staff can put together the commandments in due time!
hoooray, was getting worried about this. <3 lurkmore
Hey! Feel free to share your meme research & report through videos, but it will take some time until we can actually process / feature them as KYM dispatch episodes. Once there’s a new scientist in the lab and production side is up and running again, we’d love to bring it back in gear..
this is so awesomes. thank you scientists too!
@Jostin, I agree with you that Cheezburger Network is a documenting entity and that there’s chance of redundancy, but I think we started covering notable hubs & communities in submssion pool for sometime now. So I’ve removed it from deadpool (an the ironic factor was killer too) but precisely because of our relationship now, I think this entry should be / will be subject to 500% extra scrutiny.
