It might be an eventuality, but can we not do that quite yet?

I'm fine with that. If I want memes, I'll go back to reddit.

Every idea we are able to communicate to one another is a meme, or is composed of multiple memes.

I agree with this. It's impossible not to have memes.

It’s possible however, to develop a culture of dissecting, combining, and improving memes by rewarding original posts and comments, instead of a culture of repeating the most popular memes.

Semantics. On point, but you very well know what OP meant.

Not the person you replied to, but I don’t. What does OP mean by memes? Jokes? Puns? Copypasta? Image macros? Reaction gifs?

Any of those ideas or things that become popular will be repeated to some extent. When does a joke go from funny to bad meme? When it’s repeated past a magic number of times? When I’m bored of it? Someone else may be seeing it for the first time.

Also, the idea that memes are undesirable is itself not a new idea in this sub :)

Memes are an integral part of any society. Voat is no different.

You're on a platform where the quality (or at least visibility) of a post or comment is decided on a vote, everybody gets a vote. If memes become more visible it's because more people are liking them.

That's just the truth of a platform like this.

To clarify, I don't care much when people use memes to funpost but it could get overwhelming like the other site.

I personally do not like memes. Often times, uses of memes add nothing to a discussion.

No. Memes were the beginning of reddit turning into shit.
