Pony with care My Little Pony: Make Your Mark Chapter 2 was just released, so remember to tag images of/about the latest episodes with the appropriate tags

Poll on hiding exploitable memes

Background Pony #A339
What about obligatory pony tag?
 
That should also be hidden by default.  
I know meme includes a good portion of those, but i’m not sure if all of them are covered.
 
And how are you going to enforce the proper tagging?
 
Do you realize that making it hidden by default isn’t necessarily going to be effective if the uploaders don’t do the proper tagging, right?

I know, that’s why i said that i know that meme covers most of the obligatory ponies, but i don’t think that all obligatory ponies are memes.

The tag isn’t going anywhere. We’ll hold another poll for that and a related issue later on; we don’t want to jam too many things in these polls.
 
As for enforcement, it’ll be like the human nudity/exhibitionism tags; enforced by mods. As it is most people do tag the name of the meme they’re using, or taggers add it quickly enough, so setting up an implication to the meme name is fairly trivial.

What you are proposing is only sweeping the trash under a rug. I wish you would delete and forbid lazy exploitable memes entirely. They are not art and many times are barely pony related. The TV meme in particular is used almost exclusively just to get non pony content on the site.

“I refuse to hide it! It shouldn’t exist in the first place! And I won’t stop complaining until it’s banished from everywhere!”
 
Yup. Heard that before.

Cosplay is techically craft and is certainly more pony and involves more work than memes.
 
A different issue would be lazy cosplay, but it’s silly that you want to put them on the same level.

We have been known to delete random crap that’s pretty much a one-off pony vector and random text strapped on it. The problem with memes is they’re almost all crap, yet somehow popular. Other than chikun and flash sentry, these things are uploaded by dozens of different people. Most seem to dislike them, but there’re enough that apparently like them for reasons we don’t comprehend. Given they don’t really break any grand rule on their own (not illegal, not offensive, and are, to some degree or another, pony related) I can’t really advocate an option for a full on ban.
 
This is a bit different from what we did with the cum on toy stuff, because that’s a binary “the toy has cum on it, or it doesn’t”. This topic includes an obnoxiously wide variety of different kinds of images and “jokes” of some quality or another that are too difficult to judge. I have had a few chuckles from some of these, and I can easily imagine there are people that find as much enjoyment from these things as they do from “real art”.

Speaking of which, what about youtube caption? Can it be grouped with meme? Whenever a new episode air, the site is flooded with those for hours.

A youtube caption is not a meme; it’s a youtube caption. Captions can spawn memes, but they are not memes in themselves.
 
As for me, I’m getting sick and tired of the memes. The ratio of unfunny to funny is too damn high. <insert pic of that memetastic old Black guy here>. My personal most-hated are the TV meme and Chickun, as well as the comparison-pics like “know the difference” or “what if X did MLP”, because they are not funny and never will be funny.
 
Hide memes by default? I’d be okay with that. TSP/TFP is right that they can’t really be banned, since 99.9% of memes have nothing illegal in them at all, nor are they nauseating like “cum-on-toy” or some of the “human exhibitionist” pics. They’re just, by and large, annoying.
