Recently, a moderator we should all know by now as Waj, was graceful enough to introduce me to a guideline about posting memes on the boards. I had seen some posts that reminded me of JonTron quotes, so I used some Gifs in my reply. Unbeknownst to me, most had been flagged and removed and Waj was nice enough to let me off the hook with a warning. I’m not sure how these warnings work, but within 2 days of being on these boards, I’ve already got recognized for two offences I was unaware of: double posting and this. If it’s a 3 strikes-you’re out situation, chances are I’ll be kicked from the boards before the end of the month. I’ve seen a lot of posts over the past couple days here, but I’ll be the first to admit that the community guidelines make up very little of the time spent reading these posts. Memes should be perceived as relatively innocent, but Waj is a saint in disguise for enforcing that, and I’d like to personally thank him for cleaning up the boards.
Did anyone come here for stupid memes some schmuck found the on the net? The boards are here for sharing a passion in LEGO, not to be transformed into the next 4chan. It’s a feedback-based community, where having a meaning buried in an obscure Jontron quote is not constructive criticism or supportive remarks. The rules state that memes are perceived as spam and become circulated too easily on the incorrect platform, and why this never came to me in the first place, I’ll never know.
If you have other reasons for meme replies to continue being removed from the site, or perhaps disagree outright, let me know. This topic is intended for the civil debate of either restricting or allowing meme replies. Do you agree that the moderators are doing a good job and that the TTV staff have created good regulations behind posting memes to the boards?
