Holy great fuck.
What the fuck is going on? Why? What’s happening?
Why are there plenty of new accounts reposting memes from fb/reddit/whatever all over the place?
Why are you doing this to devRant?
I’m ok with memes, there’s a section for this. But I’m seeing new accounts just signing up and hop, a meme.

I want to read people complaining, insulting dumb clients, sharing their failures and successes.
I want to argue on arguments, complain together with people, against people.
I want to read stories about managers, see exciting collabs born.
I want to see people fight the eternal battles: mac, Linux or pc? CLI or GUI? Vim or Emacs?

That’s the devRant I joined. That’s what I love here. If I wanted to get meme-spammed, I’d go on 9gag.

Yours truly,

A fellow devRanter

    Dear fellow devRant user,

    While I agree with your point and understand your annoyance, we now have filters.
    Filter out joke/memes and you’re good to go

    Best regards,
    A fellow human

    @RantSomeWhere that’s also true, not everybody uses categories in the right way. I have no problems with memes and jokes, it’s part of the ecosystem, it’s the fact that people join and think it’s a place to même around 24/7 that makes my skin shake :/

    Yeah fuck memes I want fucking stories with someone in deep shit, diving into deeper shit and then shits and fucks all over the place. And at the end I want the shit go fuck itself.

    @2lazy2debug I'm browsing in recent with the right categories, of course, and don't feel like the issue is that big. Am I not spending enough time on the app to realise that?

    By the way, if you're on algo you can always downvote the post that are not in the right category.

    Idea:

    I don't believe true rants really require pictures to tell their story.
    On the other hand, jokes/memes rarely work without it.

    So to prevent people from posting memes in the wrong category (rant/story), maybe this could be achieved by disabling the option of attaching images to rants/stories? What do you devs think?

    @RantSomeWhere these filters are not on the browser version though

    @ruhe That could be an idea, I guess. Some might complain, but there is always the possibility to post a comment with a picture.

    @Jilano Exactly. And no one would post "Meme is in the comments" as a rant

    @C0D4 they aren’t? That’s new to me

    @RantSomeWhere nope. You can pick algo/recent/too and “top tags” however that’s calculated but not the hiding of rant types.
