Thread: Memes

    Memes

    Are memes allowed in the Fun Stuff/Chat Zone subforums? I didn't see them mentioned in the rules section of either subforum. Memes seem pretty topical/mainstream and it might be fun to have a meme megathread if it is allowed.

    Judging by both funny pictures megathread and anime thigh thread in the chat zone subforum, they are. In fact, funny pictures megathread seems already to cover the topic of your suggestion for the most part, seeing as most memes are either pictures or GIFs.

    You shouldn't support people like him, it's like supporting ISIS.

    Okay. Well memes and funny pictures are different, but the funny pictures thread is decent.

    Think they are permitted in the fun stuff subforum. I know meme only answers in other threads (like Off-topic Gen and GenD) can be reported and infracted.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Hey it seems that even if you do have other things than the meme in your post, a certain mod will still infract you. FREE THE MEME! It's better than nipples anyway.

    Dunno, would believe that the content should be constructive and more of, than the meme, I guess 70% content, 30% meme? Haha. Dunno.. How I used to see it.

    The way I see it is that memes are language. So memes can be constructive and communicate something the poster wants to say and memes can be spam. But if you are going to judge memes as spam harshly you should spam nonsense written word that is clearly spam just as harshly. The latter almost never happens.

    There is more lenience in Fun Stuff/Chat zone for those kinds of things, but it still depends on the thread. We're not an image board and unless the thread is for that purpose we generally expect some level of substance to posts.

    Sorry I can't give a black and white answer but like most things it is very contextual. If you're not sure, you can always PM the mod that is active in that thread.
