Are we allowed to post memes?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed an inconsistency with how memes are handled here; It can result in a shitpost warning, or it can go completely unnoticed. In order to discourage unwanted behavior, I think it would be nice if we could clarify this since it's not really outlined in the rules. So it's probably not a bad idea to establish exactly what kind of memes are/are not appropriate to post. Purely textual memes seem to be harmless, but I haven't been able to gauge image macros. Is it as matter of excess, size or content, or ought it be avoided all together?

There's a random image thread that would be a catch all. I think there was some sort of Doom meme thread a year or so ago.

Right, and one could assume that's a safe spot for meme dumping, but I've noticed a lot of examples of image macros being used elsewhere, and for the life of me cannot figure out whether that's kosher.

please don´t

 

EDIT: The internet is overflowing with memes and assorted nonsense content. Let's keep DW free from that.

I think posting memes requires a good sense for the "meta meme climate" as to know what memes will fly and which ones will illicit the ire of the mods.

Guessing is fun, though.

On a serious note, it's safe to assume that most of 4chan, reddit and twitter wouldn't fly on here.
