Commented on Dramatic Reading

Actually, would Half Life: Full Life Consequences be strong enough to be a meme?

Commented on In b4

This is basically a funny/internet slang-ified way of pointing out what’s going to happen in a thread.

One example is if it’s obvious that the thread is going to slip into endless flamewar over a controversial topic, whether it’s original intent was pure or not.
Eg. There’s a thread in the TF2 forums on steam which is talking about overpowered weapons you’d create if you could. An expected response would be “inb4 FAN,” which is a weapon that has considerable controversy over it’s OPness.

It’s also used to signal that a thread’s going nowhere. This is on forums where the thread would likely be locked because it’s got material that’s just resulting in a flame war.
In the case of inb4 404, it’s almost 100% used in response to CP on 4chan, mainly used simply to signal that the thread’s minutes are numbered.

Commented on 2008 United States Vice-Presidential Debate

How is there so much stuff on this?!

I think that the Batman and CSI 4panes are a bit different, being a lot more mainstream. This volume of images is to be expected when someone makes a template, but the Batman and CSI ones surpass what’s normal for a 4pane.

Commented on Photoshop Bob Ross

I was wondering when this article would come around.

Tomberry is right though. Good start, but it needs to get moving in the right direction. I’ll save my gold star for the person who actually writes an article for this.

Commented on Dr. Tran

This is a popular video, but I really don’t know if it’s a meme. I mean, it’s really popular (or at least was,) but from what I’ve seen, it’s gotten a lot of attention in more mainstream culture, not just the internet. I’m not sure what kinds of mutations there might be, so some of those could change my mind if they exist.

Commented on Invincible Beast Of Tomorrow

There’s a lot of stuff on this, but it’s just a common exploitable. I don’t see any “mutation” in this per se, just what’s expected of any exploitable.

Commented on Malleo

No, it should just be included in the Weegee page

Commented on Cactuar

Oh, the only FF games I know anything about is FFIII, and they don’t have Cactaurs. So I guess it’s semi-related?

I see 1000 needles in 3 of these pics. Could it be relevant?

Oh sorry, forgot to fix that period

The real link is:北斗の拳

Commented on Whaleware

Hmm a meme that has had very little impact so far?

I’d just like to say that it’s incredibly difficult to try to predict the path of anything, especially something based on culture like a meme is. If you’ve seen a couple pictures, it’s impossible to say if it’ll become popular in the future.
There’s also nothing much we can do to “help Whaleware be the next big internet meme,” it just doesn’t work like that.

Seriously, there should be a big warning box before you press the “create new entry” button. People need to use more discretion when writing up these things.

On the upside, the article seems well written for the amount of information that exists about it

Commented on Forced Meme

Edited. If there’s anything I failed to mention, clean up help would be appreciated.

I’m guessing this need pics as well.

Commented on Cactuar

Yeah, whenever I think of Cactuar, the first thing I think of is Newgrounds and all the stuff they have there.

I’m not quite sure what to think of this…

Commented on Cleverbot

@ Shadowurry: But would memes really exist without 4chan?

Commented on Cleverbot

I’m guessing that all the searches for cleverbot are just people looking for cleverbot to use.

But it seems like almost every time a new AI chatter comes out, there’s a flood of threads on 4chan reminding people to do their part so the new AI learns all it’s swears early on. That’s the main reason it knows how to rick roll people, pokemon theme song, etc.

Commented on Cactuar

I remember this was really popular a good 4 or 5 years ago.

I think that Cactaur is pretty notable. Not obviously so, but the kind of person that lurks in the shadows of forums, ready to strike when he is needed. A lot more research is needed though, mostly into how exactly he’s used other than just as a character.

Is most certainly required in this situation
