    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

      Same.

      The urge to have the wind in my hair and the open sea before me is strong.

  3. Holy crap that’s cool very very cool
  4. Don’t wanna double post but I have more and ya can’t edit in images. Or at least you can’t on mobile.
  5. Sure! Your score was: Humor: 16/20 Theme: 9/10 Design: 6/10 Originality: 4/5 Total: 35/45 Humor: Pretty basic, funny but not insanely funny. Theme: Adheres to the theme very well, I think I took a point off just because you didn’t actually mention the word ‘Quarantine’. Design: Took a few points off here because I don’t think you really used that format super accurately. That format is usually just used to show increasing magnitudes of something, like frame 1 leads to frame 2, which leads to frame 3, which leads to frame 4. You used it as the first two frames being a negative reaction to something, and the last two frames being a positive reaction. Which tbf makes some sense based on his expression, but I’ve never seen that format used that way. Originality: Pretty unique, taking a positive spin on being stuck inside. Most quarantine memes are about how not fun it is, so I liked your optimism.
  6. Pretty sure spoiler policy is no row content at all outside of spoiler boards, and then once the 9 months are up tagged spoilers are allowed
  7. Isn’t that a Thomas sanders vine?
  8. Epic. Also, I just had an idea for a theme, but I’m not sure it’ll work. What if I chose a Sanderson character as the theme. I didnt want to just have the theme be something like “the cosmere”, because 1. That’s too vague, and 2. Sanderson Memes has like every joke already. but what if I just chose a specific character? Brandon’s characters are so well written that there should still be a ton of ways to approach making a meme about them, and then it’s still specific enough to not just be vague and pointless. thoughts? Also, I’ve read RoW, so if we do end up doing this, (and if both assistants have read it too) then you could make RoW memes. You just couldn’t share them in the thread afterwards.
  9. I’m working on that. I’ve got some ideas, but they need to be refined a little bit. Will probably put it up later today or tomorrow morning at the latest. It’s hard to think of something relatable to everyone. Like, I was thinking I could choose a piece of pop culture or something, but what if someone doesn’t know what that is? So what if I just make the theme “pop culture”? Well then I might not know what someone’s submission is. So finding a balance is the tricky part. And then also having the theme not be too vague on top of all of that. Also, I am putting out a call for a second assistant. Can be anyone, a contestant or just someone watching. Connie has been amazing, but not everyone can be online all the time, so hopefully having a second assistant will increase the odds of someone being online sooner, just to help streamline the process. meme submissions would be the same, you just send them to both assistants at once in a group PM.
  10. I am so confused what even is this thread I’m laughing but I am so confused
  11. A bishop a priest and a rabbit walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Before I can serve you, I need to know your blood type, new policy.” The bishop says, “My blood type is A” The priest says, “I’m a B-“ The rabbit says, “Uh, I think I’m a Type O”
  12. Alright here we go. Your score was Humor: 18/20 Theme: 6/10 Design: 6/10 Originality: 5/5 Total: 35/45 Now a breakdown. 18/20 for humor. Not too much to say here, I just found it pretty funny. Not like, the funniest thing ever, so not 20/20, but still very funny. It’s very relatable, so that contributes quite a bit. 6/10 for theme. Docked a few points here because I think the punchline was more about the Shard than it was about Quarantine. In hindsight maybe I docked too many points, the general topic is still quarantine, even if the punchline isn’t super related to it. 6/10 for design. I had a general rule while judging that I was docking 3 points for any meme with a watermark. Maybe I’ll lower that to 2 points for the next round, not sure. And then I docked one more point because I think it would’ve been better if the 17th Shard logo was specifically above the gun, so it’s like you’re killing your social life with the Shard. As it is, both the logo and the “Me” are referring to the same thing, so it’s mildly confusing, like “so who does he represent, ‘me’ or the shard? Also, I found the phrasing “my in-person social life” a bit clunky. Could’ve just said “my social life”, and it would’ve made just as much sense. I can see why you’d want to clarify it, but still. So those 2 things together equal one docked point, plus 3 for imageflip watermark. 5/5 for originality. Pretty basic, any Sanderson or 17th shard meme is basically guaranteed 5/5 here. So there we go, breakdown of the meme. If anyone has any ideas on balancing the criteria scores, I’d appreciate them. It’s currently at Humor: /20 Theme: /10 Design: /10 Originality: /5 My current thoughts are maybe lowering the weight of the Theme score, having that be weighted the same as design seems a bit much. But then it’s also pretty easy to score high on theme so maybe it’s good how it is.
  13. I would like to issue a formal apology to @Archer, whose meme was lost in the mail. They have graciously said that they don’t want a retconned score, and I am ever so grateful for that.
