My friends, you bow to no one. I still remember when lotrmemes was about lotr memes

Are blatant shitposts about rocks looking up still allowed?

u/ZazzRazzamatazz GROND Sep 22 '22

Only if they don’t float.

If they float, they're a witch

So if she weighs the same as a duck she's a witch

u/ZazzRazzamatazz GROND Sep 22 '22

But what if she has a tempest raging inside her- would that affect her buoyancy at all?

u/Dinomiteblast Oct 03 '22

The tempest raging inside her turned her into a newt!

u/Only-oneman Sep 22 '22

When the Grond memes were everywhere the first time it was a little annoying, but looking back after people throwing fits about RoP on a meme subreddit, I look back on the Grond ol' days with fondness and prefer it over debating RoP

u/Kombart Sep 22 '22

Maybe I am a stupid idiot, but Grond spam is peak comedy for me. I am just giggling away everytime I see a new stupid grond post.

u/SpacemanSpliffEsq Oct 03 '22

Can this be enforced better? I’m sick of the RoP images with snarky and provoking headlines pretending to be memes.

3

u/PalmerEldritch2319 Oct 28 '22

This. From both sides of the spectrum. Please, please let's get rid of both as consequently as possible!

8

u/Leo-No-Comply-eire Sep 23 '22

I return to this sub now, at the turn of the tide.

7

u/Bliss_Hughes Sep 22 '22

I appreciate the updated rules

4

u/leahhhhh Sep 26 '22

The worst is the meta memes - opinions about other people’s opinions of the show.

5

u/LordElfa Balrog Sep 28 '22

Since apparently nobody is following this new rule, I'm back out, again.

u/itsahot Oct 05 '22

But this isn’t a political sub either, but you don’t care. I thought I could maybe find subs that didn’t bring in politics but this one is no different. All I wanted was a break from that exhausting bs. A place where people could laugh and joke, and the only hate came from others was about movies or books. All the Mods let me down so I’m going somewhere else.

u/SwinubIsDivinub Oct 30 '22

At least that stupid “I refuse to wear a mask” meme has stopped making the rounds

u/TRocho10 Sep 21 '22

You mean people have to post something other that RoP bAd posts???

u/mittelhart Sep 24 '22

And also other than RoP gOoD posts

9

u/EdgarAllanKenpo Sep 22 '22

ThankGod. I'm glad I hung around but I would just pass over lotrmemes in my feed because 95% chance it was a post with no memes, bashing RoP..or someone complaining about someone bashing RoP. It got fuckin old quick.

u/Eskar_210 Sep 22 '22

Thank goodness. I am so tired of it. I was almost gonna leave the subreddit. I just wanna see the same 100 memes over and over again and feel like life is worth living in the little moments of they bring me.

u/MistaDemon Sep 23 '22

Was about to leave the sub until I read this. Thank you. So tired of all the RoP posts. Give it a rest!!!

u/LordElfa Balrog Sep 26 '22

Of course, if they don't enforce this, it won't last.

u/Markamanic Sep 22 '22

I do object that r/harFEET is not for angry memes, please keep that shit out of there.

u/Waelyna 9d ago

Can we ban grond memes and comments please? I’m done

u/animatedhenry Sep 22 '22

Thank Zeus! I was about to fuckin leave. It was getting so goddamn annoying

Thank you

u/stompin_goat Oct 08 '22

So is this a heavily policed area now?

9

u/alizteya Sep 22 '22

Unpopular opinion I guess but memes… that make fun of the show… should absolutely be allowed.

The show will be over soon and we’ll all go back to Grond spam, but having a bit of debate about a new piece of media for once in the comments is a breath of fresh air over the same tired old content recycled and the bots spouting the same lines over and over again in reply.

u/lazerlike42 Sep 21 '22

In all seriousness, where would one henceforth be able to find memes criticizing the show? I can't imagine there would be any in subs dedicated to the series.

11

u/Andalus23 Sep 22 '22

r/memesofpower for folks to make memes that criticize the show.

r/harfeet for folks who like the show and want to meme.

Also try just straight up going to r/rings_of_power, where folks are very critical. I think they allow memes.

u/Kado_Cerc Sep 22 '22

Booo do what you want

u/CrowNo1405 Sep 21 '22

Thank you I’m so sick of the ROP hate like yes we get it your don’t like it but your taking it very far when anytime I see a post from this subreddit it’s just ROP hate

Thank you

11

u/MyWifeLeftMe111 Sep 22 '22

I think you are miss understanding the post, its not about stopping ROP memes it's just saying that they need to be...well, memes. No more text post. Negative or positive as long as it's a meme

2

u/[deleted] Sep 29 '22

And yet

https://i.redd.it/c7esozvgwmq91.jpg

That meme post got locked

3

u/OneEyyedWilly Sep 23 '22

And there it is. We now can't mock the show with memes. Exactly what we knew would happen when they said we would be allowed to meme the show after it came out.

1

u/SkepticalAdventurer Oct 15 '22

I don’t even disagree about ROP content going somewhere else, but what a trash mod-serving angle to go. There is no joke that doesn’t imply a judgement or opinion on the material being joked about. So stupid (Unless you’re the person who gets to decide which posts are memes and which violate tos)

Or brilliant if you want to make the screechers louder on both sides? I guess it would make sense for the sub to be run by part of amazons controversy-marketing team

1

u/[deleted] Oct 15 '22

These hypocrites have “SHITPOSTING” as a flair to specify a fucking post.

u/meathelmet155 Sep 22 '22

This post should be deleted because it's not a meme. 🙄

u/CaveTroll2187 Sep 22 '22

OP is a mod you moron.

u/[deleted] Sep 25 '22

It’s a mod post dumbass

1

u/butts____mcgee Oct 16 '22

Could the mods actually implement this? Seems like almost every single post is some low effort RoP bashing bullshit.

Completely ruined the subreddit.

u/njm1314 10d ago

u/TheBlueWizardo 10d ago

r/lotrmemes is also not r/grondspam

Mods clearly give 0 shit about what gets posted here.

u/7thFleetTraveller Sep 30 '22

and what is just making fun of the show

But this is an accurate description for many memes that we all know and love, no matter about which topic! I'm all for no discussion threads, but don't start to judge which memes are "good enough" and which not in your opinion.

u/[deleted] Oct 15 '22

Just had meme I made removed. About to hit 2200 likes/350shares. Gatekeeping ROP criticism. This sub is dead

u/chefr89 Oct 15 '22

"I equated the quality of RoP as being the same as the holocaust and had my post removed... ergo, the sub is dead!"

1

u/[deleted] Oct 15 '22

Ah there he is. “Comments mean delete the original post”. Oh and don’t act like the show deserves a nicer comparison stooge

3

u/chefr89 Oct 15 '22

probably had more to do with you having a meltdown and attacking people over a fucking television show

2

u/[deleted] Oct 15 '22

Meltdown? Don’t confuse defending my stance well with a fucking meltdown. You really gobble that RoP shit up don’t you? Keep embarrassing yourself, mainline Reddit has already gotten the report of the hypocrisy related to Rule 15 and the ability to somehow still allow “shitposts” 😉 clown

1

u/paragonofcynicism Sep 27 '22

I agree with this stickied post. Especially since rings of power isn't lord of the rings and seems to have nothing but contempt for Lord of the rings and tolkein's broader vision. So rings of power should have no power here.

u/halfman1231 Oct 27 '22

u/SwinubIsDivinub Oct 30 '22

Could even ban rop altogether as they have their own meme sub. If people want fresh material they can go over there; if they want taters, they can come here. That way, we actually pretty much eliminate the rop arguments rather than trying to define the grey areas.

u/KneelThenRise Oct 31 '22

What marketing team had the idea to set up so many different subs to reputation manage?

u/Wooflu GROND 22d ago

Rings of what?

u/germothedonkey 6d ago

Its not a lord of the rings sub anymore either. Its a place where creativity is just regurgitating the same tired joke ad nauseum.
