Meme Template[edit]

Hi All.

I was browsing some meme pages today and found myself frusturated with the lack of a navbox for internet memes. Per WP:BOLD, I took it upon myself to create one. You can see the results at Template:Memes. I originally created it using a script at User:Allanlw/ which parsed the List_of_Internet_phenomena into a navbox format. I also added the template to a few meme pages, which of course you can see at Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Memes. I currently don't have the time to add it to all of them (I'm a college student who should be studying for finals...), but I added it to a few that I thought it definitely was fit for.

The template is currently a bit too big, too broad and could probably be pruned down a bit, but I think it's a good start. Hopefully you all over here at WikiProject Internet Culture will agree!

Let me know if you have any comments!

Thanks. -- Allanlw 22:21, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Seems to be gone now. Sounds like a good idea, tho, maybe someone could see about making a better version of it without violating WP:CSD? Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 02:03, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Internet culture photos[edit]

I don’t want to sound like I’m insulting the current Wikipedia standards; but scince most, if not all, Internet memes have no copyright owners, it is nearly impossible to add images to this project. Can an exception be made to articles and images in this poject? I mean, if someone actually wanted to be credited for a photo, wouldn’t they care to actually get a copyright on that photo? Please tell me your thoughts. 〜Britannic124 (talk) 02:15, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

  • The internet usually works on appropriation (taking something that isn't theirs in the first place); doubly so with Memes. I doubt that, say, Dancing Baby, was intended to be public domain. Hence why some memes have been brought to court for copyright issues (and found to be fair use); see Downfall. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:06, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
