Ok. I have more dupes. But first, I'd like to say something.
It's really frustrating to collect a load of duplicate pages, and then have them ignored. This thread improves the traffic flow on this site by making it easier to access pages, but people aren't bothering to read the thread or hide any duplicates. It's wasting the time and the effort that went into finding those.

In the off-chance that someone actually comes along and hides these (along with the rest of this page, which hasn't been hidden yet) here are some dupes:

Single Instance of Photogenic Guy
Single Instance of Scumbag Steve
Derivative of Scumbag Steve, possible an advertisement
Single Rage Comic

Alright, we're up to date again.

I'm kinda disappoint in the mods (including myself). Only Opspe's top post was hidden, the rest was still there. We've been ignoring this thread a bit too much.

Went searching and this is what I found.

A derivative of One Doesn't Simply/SOPA
A derivative of Bad Advice Cat
A derivative of YOLO
A duplicate of Angry Soccer Fan
A duplicate of Skifcha
A duplicate of Miami Zombie
Single instance of Demotivational Posters.

Well, don't look now. Because I'm back with more. :D

Duplicate of Dubstep
Duplicate of While I Play Unfitting Music

Name speaks for itself

And you know, it's sad really. Because I take a bet most the user who upload these entries might have believed they'll go somewhere.

Also, I posted the duplicate for Steppin On the Beach and it hasn't been dealt with yet.

I'm back! Okay, here's what I got.

Two dupes about the same character here, and
Duplicate of When You See It
Duplicate of Dafuq
Duplicate of Strutting Leo
Duplicate of Zalgo
Derivative of Ancient Aliens/Chuck Testa
Derivative of Ancient Aliens/Yo Dawg
Derivative of X in G Major
Derivative of Bed Intruder
Derivative of Captain Obvious and its dupe
Derivative of What If I Told You
Derivative of At First I Was Like
Derivative of Insanity Wolf
Derivative of Justin Bieber
Derivative of Cool Story, Bro
Derivative of Internet Tough Guy
Single instance of Close Enough
Single Demotivation Poster
Single Rage Comic

So now what should we do about these entries? Because if you were to type in "condenscending" into the search bar, these three entries show up before Condescending Wonka.


Done and done. I'm not going to hide Condescending Christian, since there are actually some examples of that. That's the sort of thing that does belong squarely in the deadpool, where everyone can see it.

I'm bringing this thread back.

Duplicate of 4chan
Single MLP image
A subculture entry for a single MLP comic
Single image of Twinkies
Blatantly forced/Non-notable Scumbag Steve Derivative
Single hipster image
Single Frankenstorm Image
single cat image
Covered in the Paul Ryan entry
Covered in the Abridged Series entry
Single Mitt Romney image
Single Reaction Face

So, just so we're clear, I believe the mods are willing to delete entries that are:
-A single image without description as to its relevance
-An entry that is a duplicate of an existing entry
-An entry that is a derivative of another entry, but has no description, spread or relevance and is simply making it more difficult to search the original. (If these kinds of entries have any relevance, they should be merged into the original entry)
-Troll entries

Happy hunting.

That one isn't a duplicate of anything, nor is it a target of raids or anything like that, but it is, howevery, retarded.

No images, no videos, only 3 lines of text.

I'm not 100% certain, but I think that mods are allowed to hide entries from public viewing if:
1. The entry consists of obscene materials (gore or porn)
2. The entry is a duplicate
3. The entry consists of a single image (possibly based on a meme)
3. The entry is a target of a raid. (MMMeme)

Anyway, I've noticed a lot of duplicate entries go unhidden, and simply stay in the deadpool. Since these make it a lot harder to navigate to the right page, and since we've recently begun hiding entries consisting of a single spin-off imagine in that last What People Think I do/What I really do incident, I think we should start hiding these too.

Here are some I compiled:
When Searching "Y U No", I got the following entries before the actual page.
Internet Y U NO guy

These make it harder to access the actual page, which is quite frustrating.
If we were to hide entries that misunderstood the purpose of this site, e.g. entries that people make to "create their own meme" or meme pages made for a single instance of another meme, the list of pages we need to hide for that one entry would be 3x as long.

Anyway, if you see any more pages that need to be hidden, why not post them here?
