The Great Meme War: Rescue the Memers!



Memehub vs Memestagram

I have fired some shots by posting memes aimed at memestagram on memestagram but have not received any rebuttal memes. So I am holding a contest to save the memers that have been abandoned by @memestagram.

This week to receive an upvote, post a meme about how Memehub is better than Memestagram in some way in the comments of a recent memestagram post. Whoever creates the one I like best will receive 10 liquid steem. Comment a screenshot of the meme with a link to the memestagram post it is on and I will give 50% upvote to the comment and 50% upvote to the meme post itself. Post them on the Memehub platform to get LULz as well.

I will also be watching the memestagram tag; so Memestagramers are welcome to fire shots back with memes and, honestly, if it is a dank meme then I will upvote it. Or if the creators of @memestagram want to accept my meme duel challenge, then I am down to elect a moderator and to create a post where the owners of Memehub and Memestagram throw memes back and forth at one another in a meme battle for the entertainment of Steemians.

The purpose of all this is not to cause mischief/drama but to encourage a healthy competition between meme platforms. Also to provide entertainment as well as insight to Steemians. If @memestagram does not respond at all, then have they abandoned their community? If they decline a meme battle, then do they even meme? Would you want them to represent the Steem Meme Community?

EDIT: I just discovered that @memestagram has banned the Memehub acct and my personal acct from the platform. Instead of accepting a meme challenge, they chose to have no backbone and ban. I thought this is what they would do because they are not competent enough to survive on the battleground of the memelords. My open challenge to a meme duel still stands if Memestagram has the courage. Even if you get slaughtered, at least your community could respect you for answering the call.

Meme War Requirements

  • DO NOT be unfactual or obnoxious.
  • DO NOT forget this is a battle of memes, not words.
  • The memes must be dank.
  • I will only upvote one Memehub meme comment per post.
  • The post you are commenting on must be no older 3 days.
  • Do not post from the memestagram platform, they will take a chunk of your rewards, lol. Use the tag memestagram on some other steem frontend to post comments.

A Bit On Meme Wars

Meme wars are not uncommon in deep meme culture. I participated in the meme war of Reddit vs Instagram, when it was first discovered that Instagramers were taking Reddit memes to share on Instagram to better monetize their accts. I also participated in many other meme battles, such as the battle of Reddit vs Buzzfeed.

Memes can be an extremely powerful tool. Here is a link to a huge operation by 4chan and reddit to use memes to influence public opinion on the 2016 presidential election, The Great Meme War. So why not have steem leverage the power of memes to its advantage? Well, that is why Memehub is here, to assist Steem in harnessing the great power of memes. I encourage every Steemian that ever enjoys memes to help us build a meme community and platform that can stand on par with and rewards dank meme smithers better than any other meme platform out there! Once prepared, we will launch an operation to recuit memers from across the internet and convert them to steemians.

STEEM NEEDS TO TAKE MEMES SERIOUSLY!


Let's harness the power of memes for the betterment of Steem.

Someone sent you some POCKET tokens. POCKET is an experimental sub-token system which operates on the Steem blockchain. It's like having a custom token without SMT. You can also send some to someone else by just commenting on a post with the following command: pocketsend:number_of_token@recipient_name,memo for example to send 10 tokens to @pocketjs, make a comment starting with: pocketsend:10@pocketjs,This is a gift

I am running Pocket-JS confirmer code.

Wow, there was a lot going on in the background this week, a lot of development and also the meme wars, to bad memestagram didn't play ball and acted like they were 5 year-olds. At least it will be an opportunity to create some funny memes ( I've read multiple definitions of "dank memes" but I still don't quite grasp the concept :P )
I'm very grateful for the win on the emojicon contest, it really brightened my day ( steem price got me a bit down). However it may deserve it's own post because some details are unclear like: how many entries can you have per comment/ how many comments can you have?; do the previous week's winner gets to submit emojicons?; for how many weeks will the contest run? when does the current week end? etc - I'm a bit ocd when it comes to rules and maybe you want something more laid back, but I had to share my thoughts :P

Yeah, I really wish memestagram would meme battled me. Itd be fun for everyone.

I dont think the contest has enough entries to worry too much about it. When the userbase has grown we will revisit this concept with more structuring. Id say if you won once then you cant re-enter for now, until we revisit the contest concept in the future.

Fair enough, also how many "memewars" related memes are we allowed per day/week/account or whatever ? ( see... I can't help myself :)))

Was aiming to have the memes be in the comments section of memestagram posts but Ill give you this one for sure. Mainly that way you could dodge memestagram taking a chunk of your rewards but screw it, that was a dank meme!

I think somewhere around 200 will be the first exchange rate we set. But this will change along with the size of the userbase.

One could even angle the memes to fit the belt rack better if they took the time in photoshop. I just made this on the fly in PS.

I don't have photoshop, but I'll try to get a "free" version :) 🏴‍☠️

pirate away. If you really want control over your meme smithing then Photoshop is the way to go. Just takes a bit to overcome the learning curve but once ya got it, you can make your memes exactly how you want.

Hi @memehub In the sign up process the confirmation mail is not arriving. Thought I should let you know
Though the login via gmail works just fine :)

Much thanks, I thought the Devs had resolved this issue. It happened because we had the email confirmation disabled on the test server while testing prior to deployment. I will be sure to point this out to the Devs!

Hi @memehub when I registered I got this message on the top right of the screen


However the confirmation mail never arrived neither in the inbox nor in the spam. Double checked
I thought I should let you know .. Not sure if its a bug or a partial system down time.
Though sign up through google worked for me

Its a bug we are working on. We had the email confirmation stuff disabled when we were on the test server. This should be fixed very very soon. Until then you can still use gmail/fb sign-in.
